Oracle OpenWorld 2012 and JavaOne 2012

Oracle OpenWorld 2012 conference is in its full swing in San Francisco. More than 50.000 attendees from over 123 different countries registered for the conference and they have more than 2.500 available sessions to attend. More interesting facts about the conference can be found here:

The conference kicked off on Sunday, September 30, when Oracle’s CEO Larry Ellison announced several new services. To existing PaaS and SaaS offering under Oralce Cloud, a new IaaS offering is available. Oracle Cloud also got an extension called Oracle Private Cloud. It provides clients with the same functionality as in the public cloud offering, but the location for hardware is provided by clients. Hardware is owned and managed by Oracle. Following the Private Cloud announcement, Ellison announced Oracle Database 12c, as the first multitenant database. The last major announcement was Exadata X3 Database In-Memory Machine. It uses 26 terabytes of memory and is designed to store entire databases in memory. Larry also gave a talk on Tuesday’s keyword informing the public about the importance of underlying cloud infrastructures on which SaaS applications are running. He pointed out that they are the only cloud provider who is giving their customers the choice of deployment. He predicted that many on-premise customers will move to the Oracle public cloud in the future.

This post is a follow up on the post where we described how to propagate a transaction from WebLogic 11g (WLS) to WebSphere 8 (WAS). Post is located here: It is describing transaction propagation in the opposite direction from WLS to WAS using WS-Atomic Transactions.

In this follow up I will describe transaction propagation from WAS to WLS using WS-AT.  I am using the same two JAX-WS Web Services as are used in the previous post. One is deployed on WAS and one on WLS. They both contain operation insert() which we use for inserting a record in a database table. For this each environment uses a separate database and has configured a corresponding XA Data Source. We implemented additional JAX-WS Web Service facade. Its penis enlargement extender role is to start a global transaction and invoke other two services inside this transaction.



Main steps:

  • From the previous post we use XA-enabled data source and both web services that participate in a global transaction.
  • Next step is to configure WAS transaction service for interoperability and proper WS-AT version (we used WS-AT version 1.2) using WAS administrative console.
  • We can also configure WAS to use Secure Socked Layer connection for WS-AT coordination or disabling it in case we do not want to use it.
  • Implement the facade Web Service. There we are calling both web services in one global transaction which is controlled using Java Transaction API (JTA). Both service clients must have attached proper WS-AT policy. We also recommended using WS-Addressing.

I’m currently at the Oracle HQ at the product briefings and I can tell you that there will be big news, both for Java, and for other Oracle products, such as SOA, BPM, and particularly Cloud (unfortunately I cannot disclose any information due to NDA).

Therefore it makes sense to pay attention to both conferences. For all of you not attending, you can follow the keynotes on YouTube live!
