Oracle SOA Suite 12c and Oracle BPM Suite 12c have been introduced, following are some of the  new key features which I have come across so far:
  • Adapters 
    • Adapters to connect from on-premise to in-the-cloud – specifically targeting SalesForce, RightNow and also providing an SDK to create custom integrations into the cloud (the first cloud adapters will be released on 11g, before the end of the year)
    • Adapter wizards are shared between SOA and Service Bus.
    • Introduction of a generic cloud adapter, which can be used to connect to different cloud providers, like Salesforce

  • Coherence Lookup
    • The Coherence adapter has a active and targeted to dedicated servers/clusters.
    • Coherence Adapter can perform four operations on items from a coherence server cache that are
      • Put, Get, Query , Remove.

  • Weblogic Enterprise Manager 12c
    • EM as a single monitoring console
    • Operation View in 12c EM which will allow you to set operational parameters across a select group of services. very help full new feature to control state, monitoring and enabling disabling SLA Alerts .etc

  • SOA Suite 12c provides the following REST Support: 
    • Support in SOA composite applications 
    • Enhanced REST support by introducing a new REST binding
    • Enables REST support in new or existing services.
    • Support from XML, JSON and URL -encoded GET/POST data.
    • Integrate with external API's.
    • Mobile enablement by exposing RESTful services that communicate using JSON as well as adding the capability to call out to such services (12c functionality)

  • Enterprise Scheduler Service
    • ESS is a scheduler that is part/subcomponent of 12c SOA Suite.
    • ESS has a EM component to manage Job requests, define metadata and schedule jobs, and API's to define metadata and schedule jobs.
