Reviewing Oracle BPM's New REST API

Starting in Oracle BPM Bundle Patch 3 (Patch id 18072286), Oracle has released the very first version of its BPM REST APIs. A complete list of the available services can be obtained through its WADL file. It can be found via a call to http://yourserver:port/bpm/services/rest/application.wadl. In this example, I used SOAP UI to introspect the definition file and get the list of the operations.

A Model for Planning Your Oracle BPM 10g Migration

As the Oracle SOA Suite and BPM Suite 12c products enter beta, many of our clients are starting discussions on migrating from the Oracle 10g or prior platforms. With the BPM Suite 11g, Oracle introduced a major change in architecture with a strong focus on integration with SOA and an entirely new technology stack. In addition, there were fresh new UIs and a renewed business focus with an improved Process Composer and features like Adaptive Case Management. While very beneficial to both technology and the business, this does pose clear migration challenges for clients who have made investments in the 10g platform.

Oracle ACM 11g - Activities

In my previous blog, we looked at Oracle ACM's Title, Priority, and Category artifacts and their configurations in an Oracle ACM project. In this blog, we will dig a bit deeper into ACM, specifically ACM Activities. Within an ACM Case, when you create an ACM Activity, you are presented with a few properties that need be set for the activity. The values you select in these properties will define that activity.

Wrestling with ADF on an Oracle BPM Project?

AVIO has just announced our new hands-on ADF with Oracle BPM Workshop for both ADF and Oracle BPM developers.

It does not matter if you are coming into this workshop as an ADF developer or as an Oracle BPM developer.  This workshop's purpose is to make it straightforward to connect the two technologies.  The skills acquired are immediately applicable and essential on every Oracle BPM project that uses ADF. 

Adaptive Case Management Modeling with CMMN

new version of Oracle BPM Suite with Adaptive Case Management (ACM) is now available, so what will that mean for requirements gathering? BPM project requirements can be documented using Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN 2.0). For ACM, there is a new notation in the works. It is called Case Management Model and Notation (CMMN).

AVIO and Oracle Workshop: BPM for Government

When government agencies use BPM, they can significantly improve collaboration with citizens and other agencies, cut costs and increase revenue. Case in point—after implementing Oracle BPM Suite to streamline and modernize its Integrated Justice Information System (IJIS), San Joaquin County in California had a better relationship with residents and a better budget.

Oracle ACM 11g - A look into Title, Priority, and Category

In Oracle BPM 11g PS6, BPM Studio (JDeveloper) is the design-time environment for Oracle Adaptive Case Management (ACM). The first thing that you notice when you create your Case Management project in JDeveloper is the Case artifact itself. The top most tab in the Case artifact is the 'General' tab. The first three elements on this tab are Title, Priority, and Category. It was not obvious to me as to what values should be used in these three elements when I created my first ACM project.

New Solutions for a New Healthcare Landscape

Along with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) came a tidal wave of sweeping changes in the healthcare industry. Due to an extremely complex web of providers, patients, payers and more—the healthcare industry has fallen behind other industries when it comes to managing effective business processes.

BPM 11g and Human Workflow Shadow Rows

During the OFM Forum last week, there were a few discussions around the relationship between the Human Workflow (WF_TASK*) tables in the SOA_INFRA schema and BPMN processes.  It is important to know how these are related because it can have a performance impact.  We have seen this performance issue several times when BPMN processes are used to model high volume system integrations without knowing all of the implications of using BPMN in this pattern.
