Three things your boss should know about and understand about software QA testing.

To remain competitive, companies have to continually drive down costs while maintaining value in the products and services they offer. One area where companies look to reduce costs is in Business Process Management (BPM).

When it comes to IT expenditures, some companies may invest a small fortune in BPM, while others may simply rely on basic tools, such as spreadsheets and Post-it notes. Regardless of the amount spent, if the tools are hard to use or the process is cumbersome then your business has become shackled and is wasting time and energy.

People are often confused when it comes to creating and using flex fields in Oracle BPM.  A while back, I'd written a blog on public flex fields, but this blog discusses protected flex fields, some best practices and a how to avoid a bug when using them.
One of the difficulties organizations initially have after installing Oracle BAM 12c is determining how to define the security levels and permissions for its different types of users. Oracle BAM has both coarse grained security defined at the application role level down to very fine grained security defined at individual BAM artifact and data object row level.
This is the 5th of a 5 part series that explains how to expose a database to an Oracle BPM 12c Process using the Oracle SOA Database Adapter and a Mediator. In this, the Composite with the Database Adapter created in part 4 is invoked by the Oracle BPM process using a Service activity.

The Problem

Sometimes, when deploying a BPM composite, the deployment times out. When a BPM composite deployment fails in this way, it does not clean up after itself. It leaves several records in the database. If one attempts to deploy the same revision, it will also fail. A common workaround is to restart the managed servers, increment the version number, and attempt the deploy again.

While the workaround does work, the remnants of the bad deploy will result in the flex field headers not displaying correctly in the workspace.
