Part of the Oracle Fusion Middleware product family, and a component of Oracle SOA Suite 11g, Oracle Service Bus 11g transforms complex and brittle application architectures into flexible application networks that are easily and rapidly modified. It does so by mediating and managing services and applications in a consistent, standards-based methodology.
Oracle Service Bus 11g delivers low-cost, standards-based integration for SOA environments where extreme performance and scalability are key requirements.
Oracle Service Bus 11g introduces new capabilities such as Service Result Cache and Automated Lifecycle Service Governance, as well as improved performance and availability for organizations using enterprise datacenters, as well as virtual private cloud environments.
New Capabilities Enhance Performance and Lower Costs
Service Result Cache: Oracle Service Bus 11g delivers a unique approach to eliminating latency times associated with frequent access of static back-end data with an easy to use, single-click enablement of service result caching. It achieves this by directly embedding and integrating with Oracle Coherence, the industry’s leading in-memory data grid.
Automated Lifecycle Service Governance: In contrast to traditional ESBs, which treat service governance as an afterthought and depend upon manual management using a disparate set of governance tools, Oracle Service Bus 11g automatically synchronizes service governance with the Enterprise Repository throughout the entire service lifecycle from design through development, deployment, and runtime. This new level of integration between the ESB and governance greatly reduces errors and improves time to market.
Cloud Integration: Oracle Service Bus 11g is designed to enable customers to easily integrate and bridge the divide between enterprise data centers and public cloud infrastructures.
“As customers expand their service infrastructure to include more disparate services from clouds and other external sources, the need for high service availability and performance dramatically increases,” said David Shaffer, vice president, product management, Oracle Fusion Middleware. “The new features in Oracle Service Bus 11g eliminate performance bottlenecks and ensure high service availability so customers can dramatically improve the performance and scalability of their SOA investments.”
"It used to take three to four weeks to onboard telemarketing partners, but with Oracle Service Bus, we have shrunk this timeframe down to a matter of days,” said Siddharth Jain, senior director of engineering at Product Partners. “Oracle Service Bus provides great flexibility and cost savings."
