Oracle Integration Cloud is a cloud-based integration platform that helps you build and deploy enterprise-grade integrations across public, private, and hybrid clouds.
It provides a single environment for integration development, testing, and deployment. You can use Oracle Integration Cloud to connect your enterprise applications and data sources across public, private, and hybrid cloud environments.
Oracle Integration Cloud has a range of adapters that support integrations to and from products from Oracle and third parties. The Oracle Integration Cloud adapters are available through the Oracle Integration Cloud Marketplace.
Oracle Integration Cloud adapters are pre-built integrations you can use to connect your data sources to Oracle Integration Cloud. The adapters are available for many popular enterprise applications and databases, including Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics 365, SAP, and Oracle Database.
The Oracle Integration Cloud adapters use the same underlying technology as Oracle Service Bus (OSB) adapters. They are built using OSB’s Web Services Gateway (WS-GW) and Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) adapters and are exposed as an API in Oracle Integration Cloud.
Oracle Integration Cloud uses the same policies as OSB to control access to these resources. This means that you must have sufficient privileges to manage these resources within your organization, or you must be a member of a group that has sufficient privileges to manage these resources within your organization.
Oracle Integration Cloud adapters are lightweight and easy to deploy. They use the same API as Oracle Integration Cloud, so switching from one adapter to another is easy.
OIC adapters use the same simple API as Oracle Integration Cloud, so you can easily switch between them.
The adapter installation is a simple one-click operation that automatically installs all the required dependencies for connecting to your target system. The configuration is also simple and intuitive: just point it at your source or target system and start sending data!
Oracle Integration adapters provide standards-based integration protocols, such as HTTP(S), FTP(S), and JDBC, so you don’t have to worry about how to integrate with other systems.
Oracle Integration cloud adapters optimize performance by using native libraries for each protocol or database connection type. They also support asynchronous processing and batching, which can help improve throughput when sending large volumes of data from one system to another.
There are several types of adapters available:
These adapters provide connectivity with existing systems. It allows you to integrate with any kind of systems like enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), and more.
The rest and soap adapter enables you to integrate with systems that support REST APIs or SOAP web services using JDBC drivers. You can use this adapter to connect to legacy systems that do not support newer protocols such as HTTP/2, JSON, or XML.
Oracle Application Adapters
These adapters make sending and receiving requests from Oracle Applications such as Siebel CRM, PeopleSoft HRMS, or JD Edwards Enterprise One Asset Accounting easy .
Oracle Application Adapters are built on the Oracle E-Business Suite Adapter Framework and provide out-of-the-box integration with popular enterprise applications. The adapters leverage the existing business logic and data within the application, making integration faster and less expensive than traditional approaches.
Oracle ERP Cloud adapter
Oracle ERP Cloud Adapter helps in connecting with Oracle Fusion Applications ERP which is also referred as Oracle ERP Cloud. The adapter provides mainly three categories of features:
- Crud operations for various data objects
- Bulk Import of Data using FBDI approach
- Uploading files to UCM
It also has trigger mode operations to receive triggers on various events like completion of Bulk Import.
These adapters provide integration between human capital management (HCM) and the human resources management system (HRMS). It allows you to integrate with HCM and HRMS applications like SAP or Oracle Workforce Management Cloud Services .
These adapters provide a way for you to connect your Human Capital Management (HCM) or Human Resource Management System (HRMS) to Workday. This allows you to transfer employee data between the two systems, keeping your employee information up-to-date in both places.
HCM/HRMS adapters play an important role in integrating Human Capital Management (HCM) and Human Resource Management Systems (HRMS) with enterprise applications. Adapters provide a seamless interface between HCM/HRMS applications and enterprise applications, enabling data to flow between the two systems. This allows organizations to manage their workforce more effectively and efficiently.
These adapters allow you to connect to e-commerce platforms such as Magento and Shopify. These adapters also have an option to connect directly with the webstore and retrieve product information.
These adapters allow you to connect with SOA systems, like WebLogic, Fuseway, and so on. You can also use these adapters to connect with SOA messages or events in real-time.
These adapters help you integrate with social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. These adapters also include productivity tools such as email clients or office suites like Microsoft Office 365.
These are used for accessing data from on-premises databases, including Oracle Database, Microsoft SQL Server, and IBM DB2. You can use these adapters to synchronize data from an on-premises database to Oracle Integration Cloud and vice versa.
For example, if you have an Oracle table named Customers in an Oracle Database, you can create a database adapter that connects to that table and maps each row from that table to a record in Oracle Integration Cloud. You can then configure the adapter so any changes made in the database are replicated in Oracle Integration Cloud .
Oracle ATP Adapter
The Autonomous Transaction Processing (ATP) Adapter allows your Oracle database to interoperate with the Oracle Integration. Automatically, this adapter manages the complexities of a wallet, so that they can create direct orders and quotes by executing SQL statements or stored procedures on your Oracle database through the connection with this adapter.
What are OIC Connections?
One can define information regarding integrated configuration instances through the OIC Connection. For Oracle Integration to communicate with Oracle application instances, it uses Connections developed on top of Adapters.
Connections are necessary for each instance of an integrated application. Simply said, it’s a mechanism for connecting to and receiving data from other programs. File Transfer Protocol (FTP) and other standard protocols, together with social networking applications like Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter, etc., are used.
By way of illustration, in order to establish a connection to a particular instance of the Oracle Service Cloud application, we must first choose the Oracle Service Cloud (RightNow) adapter and then provide the necessary security policy, security credentials, and WSDL URL.
Oracle Adapters make it easy to connect to Oracle with only a few clicks. We will examine establishing links to the Oracle Cloud using the Oracle REST Cloud and the Oracle SOAP Cloud.
To access the integrations page after logging into your Oracle Cloud account, click the menu item shown in the figure above. Go ahead and open up the menu and choose “Connections” now. You may begin setting up connections in Oracle by selecting the corresponding ‘Create’ button.
To begin, click the “Adapters” tab in the following window. Use the search bar to look for the REST Adapter, as demonstrated in the figure below. Select the adapter by tapping it and then clicking the corresponding button.
Second, in the new window that opens up, enter the information that has been requested. Enter the name you’d want to give this link. Choose ‘Trigger’ as the connection’s role, and then hit the ‘Create’ button.
Third, your REST connection should be active. Both the Test and Save buttons are available for your convenience.
The first thing to do is to use the search bar to look for the SOAP Adapter. Select the adapter by tapping it and then clicking the corresponding button.
Second, fill up the Create Connection window with the pertinent information. Name the connection and choose “Invoke” as the connection role. When you’re satisfied with your edits, use the “Create” button.
The third step is to enter your login information and the WSDL Url for your connection in the following window. You can access the Oracle cloud applications with the username and password you get when you sign up for the service. One can access the WSDL File via the URL specified in Connection Properties.
When you complete entering your information, click the “Test” button to see how well your connection is holding up. To succeed in this exercise, you must be familiar with your WSDL Url and have the proper credentials entered. Click the “Save” button to store your network configuration permanently.
Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) connections facilitate two-way data exchange between programs. In this blog post, we’ll go over some basics of Oracle and some information about Oracle Integration Cloud Connections and Manager. The basics of connecting to the Oracle REST Cloud or Oracle SOAP Cloud are also covered.
