Oracle also announced Oracle Application Integration Architecture (AIA) Foundation Pack 11gR1. Oracle AIA provides an open, standards-based approach for organizations to integrate cross-application business processes, leveraging a broad range of custom, Oracle or third-party applications, while gaining efficiencies, increasing competitive edge and enabling lower total cost of ownership.
With Oracle AIA Foundation Pack 11gR1, partners and customers can leverage their existing application investments and jumpstart new application integration projects on Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g for increased business value and agility. Additionally, the Foundation Pack simplifies and speeds development of integration projects for business analysts, architects, developers, and application owners, effectively bringing the AIA programming model and best practices out of the documentation and into the toolset.
The new release enables the definition and proposal of new services to be captured through the decomposition of business process models by architects in an integration project workbench; and the creation of new services to be automated for developers through wizards and templates. Additionally, the installation of composite business processes is simplified for application owners through the creation of a comprehensive "bill-of-materials" capturing the dependencies between services and the auto-generation of deployment plans based on the customer's environment.
Oracle AIA Foundation Pack 11gR1 now provides customers and partners with access to more than 130 pre-built enterprise business objects and more than 1,200 Enterprise Business Services.
"Designed to promote rapid deployment, re-usability and configurability of business processes, Oracle AIA Foundation Pack 11gR1 saves time, effort and cost compared to building integrations from the ground up, while realizing the value of a sustainable, enterprise-class SOA," states Michael Weingartner, Oracle vice president of development for AIA and SOA Suite.
