This was quite a long chapter and a lot of diverse topics were presented. The goal was to provide you with different subject areas that can be referenced at any time on an as-needed basis. Oracle Fusion Middleware Enterprise Manager Control provides end-to-end administration capabilities and navigating it can be overwhelming at first. BPEL, Mediator, UMS, BAM, and Human Workflow components were covered in varying detail. Numerous administrative areas of Oracle SOA Suite 11g have also been detailed including areas of administration and configuration of the service engines, a scripted mechanism to starting up and shutting down the infrastructure, administering DVMs and XREFs, performing log rotation, and creating read-only MDS accounts for developers.
In the next chapter, you will learn the art of troubleshooting issues, exceptions, and common problems associated with the Oracle SOA Suite 11g platform.
