Oracle SOA 12c comes with lot of new features; I listed some of it in my previous post. One of new feature in Enterprise Service Scheduler, this is Out Of Box scheduler provided by Oracle which is integrated to EM console. You need not to install it separately; it comes with Oracle SOA Suite 12c installer. At first look it’s look really good and easily to use. You can easily schedule your job within 2 minutes.
So if we think how it benefits SOA, here is the answer. We can schedule synchronous or asynchronous web services or service bus proxy services from ESS. We can also schedule Manage File Transfer to transfer the file from one location to another. We can also schedule to recover bulk instances from SOA EM console. Etc.
So next question is how to configure Enterprise Service Scheduler to schedule simple service? Here are the steps that we need to follow.
- Define the job
- Schedule the job
- Run the job
Below job types are included in the Enterprise Service Scheduler.
- Web Service
- Process job type for executing a command-line command.
