Report From Oracle Open World 2008 AMIS 2 October2008


Published on

Thursday, October 2nd, the AMIS crew that visited the Oracle Open World conference reported their findings in a 3.5 hour session. In segments on SOA & BPM, Middleware, Database, Oracle Applications (AIA) and Development technology, we presented the highlights from close to 1900 sessions - no small feat. And utterly incomplete of course. However, all in all, for people who did not attend the "red party" the evening gave a very useful overview of what Oracle is doing and where it is heading.

    11. 11. The Buy Of A Lifetime <ul><li>We are used to Oracle buying new products on a regular basis. </li></ul><ul><li>With the purchase of BEA they didn’t buy a new product, they bought an almost fully overlapping toolstack. </li></ul>
    12. 12. The Future of SOA Middleware - I
    13. 13. The Future of SOA Middleware - II
    14. 14. The Overview
    15. 15. Coherence Cache/Data Grid/Application Grid/SOA Grid/... <ul><li>Oracle Coherence (formerly Tangosol Coherence) was among the biggest news on OOW2007 </li></ul><ul><li>Almost every java-based Product Development team within Oracle was talking with them about integrating/using Coherence with their products…. </li></ul><ul><li>… and they still are … </li></ul><ul><li>… and some have made serious progress: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Toplink (used Coherence as distributed Cache, and Coherence uses Toplink as JPA implementation) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Complex Event Processing (more on this later) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>… </li></ul></ul>
    16. 16. SOA Grid - I
    17. 17. SOA Grid - II
    18. 18. The Overview
    19. 19. Oracle Service Bus <ul><li>Previously known as Aqualogic Service Bus, now Oracle Service Bus (OSB) </li></ul><ul><li>Direct competition for the ESB in the SOA Suite (now known as OESB, renamed to “Mediator” in R11g) </li></ul><ul><li>Much more “mature” than OESB: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Much better support for VETO (Validate-Enrich-Transform-Operate) pattern (specifically the “E”). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>More powerful transformation possibilities (not just XSLT but also “assign”-like operations). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Much better console (services can be built from scratch using only browser) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Much better High Performance features (throttling, content-based message priority, partial message extraction,….) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Also lacking some important features: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>No SCA (Service Component Architecture) support </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Domain-Value maps </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No JCA Adapter support => can’t use SOA Suite adapters </li></ul></ul>
    20. 20. Fusion Middleware 11g R1
    21. 21. Service Component Architecture
    22. 22. The Overview
    23. 23. Event Driven SOA (ED-SOA) <ul><li>It’s not a Queue implementation, it’s not an Enterprise Service Bus… </li></ul><ul><li>Its something in between.. </li></ul>
    24. 24. <ul><li>Need support for: </li></ul><ul><li>High Volume </li></ul><ul><li>Continuous Streaming </li></ul><ul><li>Sub-millisecond latency </li></ul><ul><li>Time-window processing </li></ul><ul><li>Complex pattern matching </li></ul>
    25. 25. Oracle CEP <ul><li>At OOW2007, Complex Event Processing was put on the map within Oracle with a CQL (Continuous Query Language), but it had no place to run (yet) </li></ul><ul><li>BEA had the BEA Event Server with their own, less powerful query language (EQL). </li></ul><ul><li>A match made in heaven => Oracle CEP </li></ul><ul><li>Lightweight POJO-based container (Spring framework used extensively). </li></ul><ul><li>Processes Event streams, can forward to BAM (dashboard, alerting) & SOA infrastructure (ESB) process initiation </li></ul><ul><li>Works perfectly together with (Coherence) Data Grid </li></ul>

    28. 28. SOA Governance
    29. 29.

    30. 30. Future: Oracle BPM & BPEL PM <ul><li>BPEL PM and Oracle BPM will share common runtime engine. </li></ul><ul><li>Gut feeling: BPEL used more for “technical” processes, composite services etc. Oracle BPM for “business” processes with human interaction. </li></ul>
