Integrating your applications with PeopleSoft using Oracle Fusion Middleware - The integration process explained
The main objective of this area is to provide an overview of the typical steps involved in building a comprehensive, standards based, service oriented integration solution with PeopleSoft applications using Oracle Fusion Middleware.
Step 1: Define your integration requirements and scope
Identify key business requirements
Identify key technical requirements
Identify key operational requirements
Identify applications level and module level integration touch points and business flows - applicable for both your Application and the PeopleSoft application
Step 2: Plan Integration Approach
During this phase you identify an integration approach to build a comprehensive, standards based, service oriented integration solution, using Oracle Fusion Middleware, and involves:
Identify and obtain details about the PeopleSoft integration touch points, needed for the integrated solution, using the PeopleSoft Interactive Services Repository. You can get more information about the PeopleSoft Interactive Services Repository here.
Identify services portfolio for your application - Identify the business objects, methods and business services in your application, which need to be exposed as web services to build the integration according to SOA principles.
Identify Entity/Data Mapping and Transformation requirements of the integration
Identify services portfolio for PeopleSoft. To integrate with PeopleSoft applications, you can use native web services available or use the PeopleSoft Adapter, a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, to unlock the information assets available in the PeopleSoft application.
Step 3: Design the integration
Complete the services portfolio and service-enable your application using Oracle SOA Suite
Complete the services portfolio and service-enable PeopleSoft using Oracle SOA Suite
Develop high level and detailed process designs - Design individual business processes, assembling services from each application. Specific business requirements need to be taken into account, such as uni-directional or bi-directional flow, synchronous or asynchronous, real-time or batch processing etc.
Step 4: Build the integration
Setup / Organize the integrated development and test environment
Build the services portfolio and service-enable your application using Oracle SOA Suite
Build the services portfolio and service-enable the PeopleSoft application using Oracle SOA Suite
Use Oracle Enterprise Service Bus and/or BPEL Process Manager to connect your services and orchestrate your processes with the PeopleSoft application
