A periodic conversation I get involved is the the relationship between Oracle’s SOA Suite and Integration Cloud. We’ve long held a view based on our conversations with Oracle product management.
There is a formal statement of direction for SOA Suite available ….
The bottom line as we read it:
- SOA Suite isn’t going to be scrapped and customers will not be forced onto Integration Cloud.
- Future changes are going to be on making transitions easier to the cloud, and a customer decision to adopt OIC.
- Releases will focus on keeping things up to date and aligned with the underlying technologies from Java 8 to Java 11 as a long term release of Java. WebLogic version updates.
- We’ll see mechanisms to cloud deliver integrations as the primary focus.
