2014-01-03 Saturday - Oracle Fusion Middleware Notes

I'm doing some research on various Oracle Fusion Middleware technologies, in preparation for a new client engagement.

This posting will be a placeholder for any interesting resources found, notes from various documentation sources, observations (my own, and links to others), and my experiences working with the various tools and technologies:

  • "The WADL structure (for RESTful services) is not supported by Oracle Data Integrator."

12c (12.1.2)  > Oracle Data Integrator > Appendix B Using Groovy Scripting with Oracle Data Integrator
http://docs.oracle.com/middleware/1212/odi/ODIDG/app_groovy.htm#ODIDG1444

Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse 12c (12.1.2.2) Release Notes

  • "Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse 12.1.2.2 no longer depends on Spring IDE. Users updating existing OEPE installations through Eclipse Update will need to first uninstall Oracle Spring Tools."
