SOA Suite 12c: Inspect and Leverage the contents of the Run Time MDS in the Integrated WLS

SOA Suite 12c provides the option to use the Integrated WebLogicServer in JDeveloper as the development run time environment. It comes prepackaged, installs very easily and gets a developer up and running in less than 20-30 minutes. As part of this light(er) weight SOA Suite run time, there is an MDS Repository (file based). Deployment to this run time MDS is done in the usual way. The contents of this MDS instance can be inspected in JDeveloper and resources can be transferred to the local design time MDS instance or exported to a JAR file for further distribution. All you have to do is create a connection to this run time MDS instance.

SOA Suite 12c: Using Domain Value Map (DVM) in Service Bus projects

Domain Value Maps are still DVMs in SOA Suite 12c. Create them in JDeveloper, use them in Transformations and Assignments in Mediator and BPEL. Inspect them and edit them at run time using SOA Composer. Nothing really new there.

What is new:

  • In 12c, we can use XQuery in BPEL and Mediator – and in these XQuery functions we can use Domain Value Map as well.
  • In 12c, we can use both XQuery and XSL Map in Service Bus – and here we can use Domain Value Maps as well
  • In 12c, we can inspect and edit Domain Value Maps also at runtime in the Service Bus Design Composer/Console
  • In 12c, we can create Domain Value Maps in Service Bus projects, publish them to the MDS Design Time Repository as well as import them into Service Bus projects from that repository

So as of now, in SOA Suite 12c we can leverage Domain Value Map from Service Bus components.
