Administering and configuring event engine and business events

The Event Delivery Network (EDN) in Oracle SOA Suite 11g provides a declarative way to generate and consume business events that are managed by the event engine. When a business event is published, other service components or database agents can subscribe to it. The event engine in Oracle SOA Suite 11g is a typical publisher-subscriber model that has two different implementations:

  • EDN-DB: This implementation uses an underlying database as a backend store and depends on event delivery queue tables and stored procedures to manage events. You can find these packages in the [PREFIX]_SOAINFRA schema with the EDN suffix.
