By: Arun Pareek, Ahmed Aboulnaga

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.

Administering Mediator Service Engine

In Chapter 4, Tuning Oracle SOA Suite 11g for Optimum Performance we described certain settings to optimize the performance of the Mediator Service Engine. As for bulk managing Mediator engine faults, the approach is essentially identical to managing BPEL engine faults, which is as follows:

  • Navigating to the Faults tab of the Mediator Service Engine allows you to see a list of all faulted messages and whether they are recoverable or not

  • For Mediator service faults to be identified as recoverable, a fault policy (fault-policies.xml) must be defined at design time and bound to the composite (fault-bindings.xml)

  • You can select multiple faulted and/or recoverable instances and recover them

  • In the absence of any fault policies, the fault takes its standard course and it is left to the judgment of the Mediator engine to determine whether it is recoverable or not


It may be worthwhile to remember here that fault-policies.xml can only catch Mediator faults if...
