This course covers designing and developing SOA composite applications for application integration with services by using a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) implementation approach

Composite applications are modeled and developed according to the Service Component Architecture (SCA) specifications. Oracle JDeveloper 11g is used to design, develop and deploy applications to an Oracle SOA Suite 11g run-time environment, in which the composite applications are executed

With the Oracle JDeveloper 11g Integrated Development Environment (IDE), participants learn how to design, develop, deploy, and test SOA Composite applications comprised of Mediator, BPEL, Business Rules, Human Tasks (Workflow) components. They also learn the usage of these components in depth that is sufficient to implement a reasonably complex business solution, based on a purchase order processing scenario

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.

Submit an enquiry from any page on this site, and let us know you are interested in the requirements box, or simply mention it when we contact you.
