First-class citizens and splendid isolation

Michael Poulin did a review of our SOA Design Patterns book: Thomas Rischbeck says: “The ESB pattern is about performing integration tasks and adding value to client-service communication in an SOA – all completely transparent to the participants”. I would welcome this transparency if it were not based on intelligent routing and data enrichment having its own policies on [...]

Interactive OSB Testing

Interactive Testing with OSB Test Console Oracle Service Bus has a built-in test console for the interactive testing of OSB artifacts at runtime. It generates synthetic payloads (including security tokens) based on the service description. Note that the test console performs an actual invocation of services - which can have unintended consequences on production systems. Therefore, use [...]

WebLogic JMS in-flight Message Compression

WebLogic JMS has a feature for compression of in-flight JMS messages. Compression happens between the JMS client library and the JMS server. This avoids bandwidth issues and nasty problems with maximum message size limitations (see http://thomasrischbeck.blogspot.ch/2012/03/jms-maxmessage-size-persistent-messages.html). Dynamic compression can be enabled on the JMS connection factory. Here you specify a threshold in bytes. If the serialized [...]
