SOA Suite 12c – Create, Deploy, Attach and Configure a Custom OWSM Policy – to report on service execution

This article describes how to develop a straightforward custom assertion that can be used as part of custom OWSM policy to be attached to Web Services in WebLogic, such as services exposed by SOA Composite applications and Service Bus projects as well as custom JAX-WS or ADF BC Web Services.

The custom assertion that I demonstrate here reports the execution of web service operations to a JMS Destination and/or the system output. It shows how to access property values set on the policy binding (values specific for the service the policy is attached to) and how to inspect the headers and contents of the request and response messages. Most custom assertions will use a subset of the mechanisms shown in this example.
