Access OSB Resources using Java

Every now and then you might want to store some configurations in simple configuration files and use them as OSB Resources in pipelines. In most cases OSB functionality is sufficient to fulfil your requirements. However sometimes you might not be able to get to your goal directly. Recently, I had to retrieve a list of all values in a specific domain column within a Domain Value Map (DVM). As DVMs are primarily used to map one domain value to one or multiple other domains, existing DVM functions do not provide the capability to retrieve all values from a domain column. Therefore, I developed a Java Callout to get the desired result. The solution is applicable to all OSB resource types. This blog post presents the basic concepts used to implement a solution.

Accessing the SOA 12c audit trail

One of the most important and popular features of the Oracle SOA Suite 12c is the audit trail. It allows the tracing of executed and running process instances using a graphical user interface. This monitoring functionality helps system administrators to trace every execution step of a given process and see how the data was transferred and transformed among the different components. The SOA Suite stores all this information in its dehydration database and in this blog I will explain how to access it using Java.

At this point user roles and permissions become an important topic within enterprise applications. This article will provide an overview of Oracle BAM Security Concept which can be used to restrict user access to different data and dashboard categories.
