Leverage the power of BI Publisher in Cloud integrations



By now we are all accustomed to running Applications in the Cloud and it has reached the next phase: extensibility and integrating of the Cloud Applications with other applications in our enterprise architecture. Oracle is investing a lot on this area with PaaS, IaaS, DBaaS, MWaaS, JaaS and everything else that ends with aaS. This will work fine if you are a Sales Cloud customer, where you have the ability to create custom objects, outbound calls, etc.

But what if you're a Cloud ERP or HCM customer? Integration here is currently limited to file based extracts, file based loaders, spreadsheet loaders and web services that have been made available to be consumed externally. In real-time integrations you may be confronted with data needs that are not (yet) available by the web services provided in Cloud Applications, but you also do not the tooling to create custom web services for these needs. Or do you?

Inspired by this blog of FA Developer Relations, I would like to demonstrate how you can create custom real-time data extracts on nearly any data that resides in Fusion, using the PublicReportService

Calling a Fusion Applications web service from SOA Suite 11g


More and more customers are moving to Fusion Applications and as with all ERP systems, the need to integrate Fusion Applications with other (on-premise) applications is key is the customer's architecture. Although a lot of blogs on invoking a Fusion Applications web services have been written bij the A-Team and Fusion Applications Developer Relations and others, I still felt that the blogs missed some elements on getting started with this type of integration.
In this blog I will explain on how to invoke a web service of Fusion Application using SOA Suite 11g. For this blog I will be using a pre-build SOA Suite 11g PS6 virtual machine, that you can download from the Oracle site.
