Oracle Service Bus for Integration and VirtualizationMy Organization is a consulting firm and I implement Oracle Service Bus (OSB) at various end customer and I use it by myself as well. This is an integration tool to provide a pipe to integrate between applications. OSB follows Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). OSB is very popular for virtualization requirement. OSB's components like Proxy Service and Business Service made virtualization easy. OSB addresses Integration and virtualization by a single tool.,Virtualization - By using this feature, customers need not expose their real services to the outside world and similarly while consuming the third party services, internal server URL or IPs are published or exposed. Customers can make use of Proxy Services and Business Services to achieve virtualization. Integration - OSB is middleware that provides Agility, Scalability, flexibility and better performance. This also avoids customer to do point to point integration and hence avoid spaghetti architecture. OSB provides all component of middleware like message transformation, adapters, routing etc.,Orchestration - OSB is not a tool to do complex orchestration for your integration. Oracle recommends Oracle SOA Suite or BPEL Process Manager for the same. Bulk data Integration - OSB is not meant for Bulk batch integration. For example, transferring bulk data from an application to the data warehouse. Use Oracle Data Integration (ODI) or DIPC to handle such a requirement.,8,Integration has always best ROI not only for integration project but for overall business and all systems get connected for good. OSB brings a great value here as OSB is an enterprise-grade integration tool and can be used for company-wide integration & virtualization requirement. OSB also works well with other Oracle tools like Oracle SOA Suite and ODI.,Not a member of any user groups,TIBCO BusinessConnect,Oracle ERP Cloud, Concur Travel and Expense, SuccessFactors Employee CentralHop Onto This Service Bus!A few years back our university made a transition to a more service-oriented architecture.

My Organization is a consulting firm and I implement Oracle Service Bus (OSB) at various end customer and I use it by myself as well.

This is an integration tool to provide a pipe to integrate between applications. OSB follows Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). OSB is very popular for virtualization requirement. OSB's components like Proxy Service and Business Service made virtualization easy. OSB addresses Integration and virtualization by a single tool.
  • Virtualization - By using this feature, customers need not expose their real services to the outside world and similarly while consuming the third party services, internal server URL or IPs are published or exposed. Customers can make use of Proxy Services and Business Services to achieve virtualization.
  • Integration - OSB is middleware that provides Agility, Scalability, flexibility and better performance. This also avoids customer to do point to point integration and hence avoid spaghetti architecture. OSB provides all component of middleware like message transformation, adapters, routing etc.
  • Orchestration - OSB is not a tool to do complex orchestration for your integration. Oracle recommends Oracle SOA Suite or BPEL Process Manager for the same.
  • Bulk data Integration - OSB is not meant for Bulk batch integration. For example, transferring bulk data from an application to the data warehouse. Use Oracle Data Integration (ODI) or DIPC to handle such a requirement.
OSB is a great tool and works well for both Integration and virtualization. Now OSB is available on the cloud as part of SOACS. The customer has a choice either to go with a cloud version or an on-premise version. There is another newer cloud-based integration platform (iPaaS) called Oracle Integration Cloud. OSB may not be the best fit for Bulk and batch integration as well as for complex integration/orchestration.

Oracle Service Bus Review: "Hop Onto This Service Bus!"

A few years back our university made a transition to a more service-oriented architecture. We use Oracle Service Bus to orchestrate web services consumed by our applications. Our information services department has to expose data to outside applications and vendors. We do that through web services hosted on Oracle Service Bus.
  • The Oracle Service Bus makes the management of web services extremely easy. Through its point and click interface, the web service endpoints can be easily modified.
  • The administration console provides useful dashboards to diagnose any service issues.
  • Oracle Service bus discontinued support for Eclipse IDE and some of the customization features are now exclusively through JDeveloper.
  • The service bus does not support a concurrent deployment of multiple web services through the web console.
In comparison to Open source products like Apache Camel and Mule ESB, Oracle ESB is more robust and offers better enterprise capabilities. However, the licensing costs are fairly prohibitive and are preventing widespread product adoption. At our university, we had already purchased the Oracle Campus Solutions ERP suite and hence had little problems integrating their OSB as well.

  • Issue troubleshooting using message reports is very efficient in narrowing down the issue and identifying the root cause.

  • Polling feature isn't very efficient where the end point JMS queues may still have JMS connections despite not enabling the corresponding poller proxy services.
  • Unable to deploy multiple web services in one go from the OSB Web console.
  1. User Interface of Oracle Service Bus is much more appealing and easy-to-use than other Integration/ESB products in the market. This also enables the Infrastructure engineers to be able to hand off some of the administrative tasks to other support teams.
  2. Very robust and stable, doesn't demand JVM restarts for minor configuration changes.
  3. License costs are high as any other Oracle product, so it may be considered when a company has a large set of web services to be implemented. Unless Oracle reduces the license costs, it may lose the market to a lot of open source Enterprise Service Bus too.
