Introduction to Oracle ESB Development


This course will provide each participant with an in-depth and comprehensive understanding of the Oracle Service-Oriented Architecture and event-driven environment. This course will focus on the concept of ESB in an SOA environment, SOA components, depict the role of the Oracle Enterprise Service Bus, using different Adapters, integration with JDeveloper, building publisher and subscriber applications, creation of routing rules, using the Filter Expression, creation of Domain Value Maps, managing inbound and outbound SOAP messages, XSLT mapping and transformation, message mediation, use of rules and rules engines, integration of BAM components and defining different ESB application patterns.

All aspects of this class will incorporate the specific architecture of the Oracle SOA Suite to illustrate the implementation of these techniques.


Each student should have a basic knowledge of JDeveloper and have been exposed to the Java programming language.

Class Format

Lecture and Lab


Designed for developers, project leaders, IT architects and other technical individuals that need to understand how to develop and implement Oracle ESB components in an event-driven architecture.

Learning Objectives

Upon conclusion, each participant will have acquired these skills:

  • Understand the role of the ESB in SOA architecture
