SOA Suite to OIC – how easy is it? Part 2 by Niall Commiskey

Blog: PaaS Community


In this post, I look at the similarities/differences between SOA Suite and OIC, both from a design time and runtime perspective. I then look at an approach to implementing SOA integrations in OIC.

SOA Suite and OIC 

Now let’s go a bit deeper and compare the components of each.

I like to tell customers OIC is a toolkit. The tools include Integration – to connect apps, Process – to extend apps or implement custom business processes, Visual Builder – to create net new apps on top of your App apis, Integration Insight – giving you business user facing Dashboards and Alerts on top of your integrations and processes. Complement these with a B2B component and an sftp conform File Server then you have the toolkit that is OIC. But there is more…

OIC runs on OCI, along with many other PaaS services from Oracle. Many of these services could be interesting for you from an integration perspective as well e.g. OCI API Gateway to protect your OIC apis, OCI Streaming Service (Kafka), OCI Functions (Serverless Functions for your more complex business logic), OCI Eventing and OCI Logging – to name but a few. OIC provides adapters for many of these services – net, net OCI services can provide a compelling business value-add to OIC.

To the above we can add Service Bus, BAM (Business Activity Monitoring), MFT (Managed File Transfer) and B2B components. Naturally both come with a rich set of adapters – SOA Suite has 20+ adapters, OIC has more than 70 and growing. Read the complete article here.
