Jarvis Pizzeria: Summary of a Decision Model Use Case

We have written a blog series of 6 posts describing a Decision Model Use Case. Because it concerns a series of multiple blogs and it may be difficult to oversee the whole. We will outline the full picture in this blog.

Summary

The Use Case is about accessing a Decision Model via ICS from PCS. The data used in the DM is retrieved from a Business Object in ICS and sent to the DM. The DM request data and the DM outcomes are stored in a BO in JSON format via an integration. Continue reading

Jarvis Pizzeria: Using a DM in ICS

This blog is a follow up of Using a DM in PCS, but can also be read as a separate item.

In the previous blog we showed how to embed a Decision in PCS. We described how the hard-coded relationship between a Decision and Process (PCS) can be prevented by using an ICS integration. In this blog we describe step by step how this integration can be developed.

ICS Integration

The integration can be divided into the following steps:

  1. Get the endpoint of the Decision Service
  2. Create the invoke Connector
  3. Create the Integration
  4. Activate the Integration
  5. Test the Integration (using postman)
  6. PCS adjustment to invoke the Integration

Jarvis Pizzeria: Using a DM in PCS (how to manage versions …)

In this blog we show two different ways to embed a Decision in PCS. This with special attention to version control.

In PCS (OIC component) it is possible to use a Decision Model Activity directly from a process. See the image below.

This process uses a Decision to calculate how much time it takes to deliver an order. To not make this all too complex, the Decision takes into account a limited number of factors, namely distance and means of transport. Continue reading

Jarvis Pizzeria blog refresh part 3 of 3

In this blog I do a quick refresh of the third (and last) batch of 13 Jarvis Pizzeria blog posts (note: the different headers in this blog contain a link to the actual blog).

27. Jarvis Pizzeria in Case Management Style

The core of this post concerns the release of Oracle Integration Cloud, the bundling of Process Cloud Service (PCS), Integration Cloud Service (ICS) and Visual Builder Cloud Service (VBCS). and the addition of Dynamic Processes to PCS.

Recently Rick Kelder, my new Jarvis Pizzeria partner, wrote an extensive blog about the status of OIC according to his opinion (oic-oracle-integration-cloud-what-is-it?). Continue reading

Jarvis Pizzeria blog refresh part 2 of 3

 

In this blog I do a quick refresh of the second 13 Jarvis Pizzeria blog posts
(note: the different headers in this blog contain a link to the actual blog).

14. Using an imported XSD in PCS

In this post we make an attempt to use an imported XSD containing a complex type in a web form. It is possible to ‘use’ the type, but things are not working very well (as described in the blog). In the current version (19.3.2) this works even less good. It is no longer possible to save the web form. The following error appears.

At various places in OIC the tooling has quite a bit of trouble with data types, and that in particular with complex data types but also with simple data types, not everything goes smoothly. These are generally not insurmountable issues, but in my opinion Oracle still has some work to do. Continue reading

Jarvis Pizzeria blog refresh part 1 of 3

 

In this blog I do a quick refresh of the first 13 Jarvis Pizzeria blog posts
(note: the different headers in this blog contain a link to the actual blog).

1. An Introduction to Jarvis Pizzeria!

This is the introduction to the blog series in which the original team is introduced and the scope of the blogs is indicated.

As stated before (Jarvis Pizzeria is back again), the scope has been extended from PCS only to the entire OIC. But this refresh is only about PCS (because that was the former scope). So also the solutions that we describe that we would do differently nowaday with the complete OIC toolbox. ICS and VBCS will be added more and more visibly over time in new posts.

Jarvis Pizzeria is back again

Jarvis Pizzeria is back after closing their doors for more than a year ago by now.

Because the OIC projects were not up for grabs in recent years, and it has not been easy to join one of those scarce projects, Jarvis Pizzeria had closed its doors in June 2018, it now appears to be temporary. In the meantime the entire Jarvis team went its own way, with everyone facing new challenges.

Recently OIC projects start to pop-up on several places in the Netherlands. in June 2019 I started working as an OIC developer on one of these projects, a large / prestigious project. The direct consequence of this is that Jarvis Pizzeria has also reopened its doors. After two months of preparation, this is the first blog in a new series of Jarvis Pizzeria blogs.
