SOA Suite 12c and the OPSS Keystore Service

When working with a colleague on a sample SOA 12c project recently I noticed a change in 12c that I had not seen mentioned anywhere yet.  In the sample project we were integrating with the Atlassian OnDemand service in order to provision users for Confluence and JIRA.  The integration is performed using a SOAP service over SSL.  In this situation, like at many of our customers, we needed to import additional trusted certificates into the trust store in order to make the service call over SSL.

BPM Process Patterns using BPMN

Business analysts and developers new to BPM sometimes struggle with the art of discovering, modeling, understanding and explaining business processes.

Don’t Let a Good Idea Get Away

Prevent Next Task in BPM Workspace From Automatica​lly Displaying (BPM

I am hearing from customers recently going through our Oracle BPM training that they are less than thrilled with the new feature that came in with where the end user will approve a work item and then the UI for next work item in the list is then automatically displayed.
It turns out that you only have to change the outcome values for three of the ADF form's task flow.  Only the task-flow-returns with the ids "previousTaskFlow", "nextTaskFlow" and "taskFlowCompleted" task-flow-return's shown below need to be set to "done". 

Oracle ACM 11g - Working with EDN

In my previous blog, we looked at the Oracle ACM Activity and its various properties in an Oracle ACM project. Having the ability to configure the ACM Activity’s properties to reflect the way you need it to work is great, but sometimes there are scenarios where you need more than just the Activity configuration to meet your needs. This is especially true in a SOA implementation where you will need to connect the dots between various SOA artifacts alongside ACM.
