Oracle SOA Suite Review

It has a broad set of tools for handling SOAP and REST integrations to FTP, files, and JMS depending on need.


Valuable Features

We use it to build integrations for customers. It has a broad set of tools for handling SOAP and REST integrations to FTP, files, and JMS depending on need.

Improvements to My Organization

For customers, we have often made integrations from batch processing to propagating changes in a few seconds. With the integration platform in place, it is easier and quicker to make the integrations they need.

Room for Improvement

There is always room for improvement, but it has shown a continuous growth in functionality. Nevertheless, the stability when used with JDeveloper needs improvement.

Use of Solution

I have been using it for six to seven years.

Deployment Issues

There have been no issues deploying it.

Stability Issues

The product is stable, but we have seen less stability with JDeveloper.

Scalability Issues

It contains good options for handling scalability. We haven't had issues scaling it as necessary.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Technical support is good and available, but you need to know how Oracle Support works to get the best help.

Previous Solutions

We had no other solution in place.

Initial Setup

Setup of the development environment has become a lot easier, as has the production environment. For the production environment, I would recommend someone who has done this before.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Pricing has been an issue for smaller customers. Fortunately, the cloud will now give more options.

Other Solutions Considered

No other options were looked at.

Other Advice

There is an active community -- read blogs and books, and attend conferences, and training, or work side-by-side with someone who knows the product. Also, plan the architecture well.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We're partners.
