It has been a while coming but the Oracle SOA Cloud was announced yesterday. Surprisingly, the fanfare for this key product hasn’t been held back for Oracle Open World which is only a few weeks away now. So no more building SOA on top of the Java Cloud Service. Along with SOA CS (Cloud Service) is API Management. But the release of information with yesterday’s announcement is coming quickly – for example UKOUG are running an innovation day which has had SOA Cloud session included in it. Here are a few resources that I’ve seen so far :
It looks like from the details available that SOA Cloud includes the core composites, BPEL and OSB pieces, but BAM, Scheduling, B2B are yet to be released.
The Oracle Customer Advisory Board on the end of Open World should be a very interesting day.
