Integrating with Oracle Fusion Applications: Discovering Integration Artifacts

This is a first in a series of posts I hope to write on the topic of integrating with Oracle Fusion Applications, which is the next generation of enterprise applications built on top of Oracle Fusion Middleware. My goal is to share the ease with which integrations are now possible using standards-based technologies with enterprise applications.

Oracle Fusion Applications are designed and built from the ground up using a service-oriented architecture (SOA). As I have discussed in an earlier post, visibility and control are the key tenets to SOA governance, and the first step in integrating with Oracle Fusion Applications is to find out what are the integration options available. Oracle Enterprise Repository, an industry-leading metadata repository, provides this visibility.

Oracle Enterprise Repository for Oracle Fusion Applications can be used to discover functional and technical information about integrating with other applications, including web services, business events, interface tables and data model documentation among other artifacts.

Oracle Enterprise Repository for Oracle Fusion Applications

Oracle Enterprise Repository for Oracle Fusion Applications

To maximize the usage of the repository, I have posted a white paper “Making the Most of the Oracle Enterprise Repository for Oracle Fusion Applications” – also available from the Help link on the top right of the repository. I thank Nigel King, Tim Hall and Kris Doherty for their valuable inputs and reviews on the paper. I hope that our customers and partners will find this a useful resource to mine the repository content. In future posts, I will discuss various best practice integration patterns i.e. how to integrate with Oracle Fusion Applications.

Note: Access to the repository and the white paper requires an Oracle account.

    • For support questions, you may want to post in the OTN forums where a lot of experts will be able to answer. Check the WSDL for the inbound WS to see what OWSM policies are required (e.g. WS-Security username token with or without WS-Security based message protection) as it is likely a security issue.

  4. Hi Rajesh,
    I am trying to integrate Oracle Fusion CRM with my .net application. i am analyzing the OER. Meanwhile, would you mind giving some tips on integrating with .net, any sample app?

    Thank you.

  7. Hi – The read-only repositry referenced in the post does not appear to have the ‘Navigator’ functionality enabled for Guest users – is this feature not considered useful for OFA?
    Personally I’d like to be able to select an asset, open the navigator view and then follow the nodes/relationships…can this be enabled for guest accounts?

    • Hi Russell, there is a technical issue with the Navigator working in hosted mode, therefore it was disabled. It is something that will be addressed in future releases.
      Thanks,
      Rajesh

  11. Sorry but is the Oracle Enterprise Repository for Oracle Fusion Applications part of the Out Of The box installtion of Oracle AIA Foundation Pack 11g Release 1 11.1.1.5.0?

    • Hi Nico, no it is not. Oracle Enterprise is a repository product for SOA Governance.

      It is used in AIA for visibility of the integration artifacts such as Enterprise Business Objects, Enterprise Business Services and other canonical artifacts, as well as application interfaces used in the Foundation Pack and Process Integration Packs.

      It is also used in Oracle Fusion Applications to provide visibility to its artifacts as described in the paper.

      Both are separate installs. However, the hosted repository pointed to in the post does not require any installation – it is available in read-only mode.

      Hope that helps.

      • That’s excellent news; in your blog you state OER can be used to “discover functional and technical information about integrating with other applications, including web services, business events, interface tables and data model documentation among other artifacts.” and your white paper gives excellent examples of the value of such a repository. Neither mentions how you actually harvested the data from existing EBIZ installations (for example).
        How do you get the EBIZ data into OER in the first instance?

      • OER provides an SDK and harvester that can be used to import artifact metadata. A dedicated harvester was built to import the E-Business Suite IREP data.
