Overview of this book

Oracle SOA Suite 11g is the backbone of messaging and application integration in a service-oriented architecture. An application administrator is responsible for an end-to-end administration and management of the infrastructure. Understanding the underlying components, services, and configuration and their relations to each other is necessary to effectively administer the Oracle SOA Suite 11g environment. Due to its sheer size, administering Oracle SOA Suite 11g is a daunting task.This book provides detailed explanations of all the core administrative and management activities around Oracle SOA Suite. It includes compact information for end-to-end administration of Oracle SOA Suite 11g. It delves into advanced topics such as silent installs, cloning, backup and recovery and high availability installations.Using this book, you will be able to administer and secure your Oracle SOA Suite services and applications. You will follow examples that you can use in your everyday life as a SOA Suite administrator. The book begins with managing composite applications, their deployments and lifecycles and then moves on to monitoring instances, service engines, Weblogic Server and composite applications. With a detailed coverage of topics like the administration of individual service components as well as configuring MBeans using both Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control and WLST-based scripts, you will be equipped to work with any services and applications.Towards the end, you will be taken through identifying faults & exceptions, troubleshooting approaches, and securing various components.

Configuring and administering BPEL Service Engine and components

The Oracle BPEL Service Engine is a container providing standards for assembling, developing, and executing synchronous, as well as asynchronous, services into end-to-end business processes in the SOA Infrastructure. When the soa-infra application is started, it initializes the BPEL engine in a stateless manner and loads composites from the MDS repository. If the composite contains any BPEL components, it targets them to the BPEL engine. At runtime, the BPEL engine waits for requests from different channels, such as messaging sources, databases, and web services. It uses a Dispatcher Module that maintains an in-memory logical queue containing units of work to process incoming messages from these binding components. The BPEL Service Engine saves the process execution state in the dehydration store through a persistence module based on Oracle TopLink and hence there is no in-memory state replication required.
