Consultant
‎Senior ETL Consultant at a tech vendor with 201-500 employees
Apr 26 2018

What is most valuable?

It is lightweight and one can easily integrate with different applications, databases, JMS, or Web services through different protocols.

How has it helped my organization?

It helps in building reusable, well-defined services.

What needs improvement?

It needs to support more adapters, because the integration points keep changing and new things keep coming up. It also needs to be more scalable.

What other advice do I have?

When selecting a vendor, at least from the architecture and the developer's standpoints, looking at the implementation and scalability are the two most important things. Oracle provides good documentation, look through that. This solution is advisable when you need some kind of layer in between, so… more »

What is most valuable?

* It’s a lightweight tool compared to Oracle BPEL * The design of the product.

How has it helped my organization?

Because it can handle JSON inputs, we can now use JSON.

What needs improvement?

The logging and error-handling framework can be improved. Usage of DVMs, MDS and other additional features that are possible in XSLT in BPEL are missing in this product.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I heard it’s available free with Oracle SOA Suite 11g, so don’t worry about additional licensing costs for this product.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Even though we had been using Oracle BPEL, we had to go with Oracle Service Bus because it is able to handle JSON inputs. We tried to implement one scenario using Oracle… more »

What other advice do I have?

It is a very lightweight product and has great processing speeds.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before choosing this product, we did not evaluate other options. We only explored different Oracle alternatives.

What is most valuable?

It's sort of a one-stop shop for web services. All of our web services interact with each other. Instead of calling specific server host names and specific URLs, we call the OSB service bus URL that's configured for that specific client. It's very simple to know where things are going because we can generate the URL specifically with our naming convention, so that we know where it goes, who's… more »

What needs improvement?

With the most recent version, 12c, I'm still getting use to using it, learning how to use it, how to configure it. The Oracle documentation is OK, but there aren’t a lot of good examples for me to follow. It describes the concepts and what it can do, but how to apply them has been a struggle, so far. I'm still looking for help in that area.

What other advice do I have?

When I select a vendor to work with, I look for reliability and ease of use. Performance is everything and this has proven itself over the years. That's why we keep using it.
