December 2023 – New Additions

As we enter 2024, we wish you all the best for the coming year. There is much to look forward to – Niall Commiskey’s 1000th blog post on Oracle Integration. will land soon.

The Oracle Integration Community continues to thrive – we continue to discover new people writing about the subject, and the PaaS Community – which has been there from the birth of what started as ICS remains the touchstone for all things Oracle Integration related from Visual Builder to Process Orchestration in the caring hands of Jürgen Kress.

August 22 – New OIC Articles

August is a special month for OIC as we see the launch of Generation 3 of the product. The biggest differences are under the hood, with the core engine moving from a WebLogic basis to running on top of Cloud Native OCI services. As a result, the solution will be able to more efficiently leverage other OCI features to deliver enhancements. Not all of the Gen2 features are running on Gen3, we can expect things to follow quickly. When looking at documentation you’ll need to watch out for references to Oracle Integration Generation 2 vs. Integration Generation 3.

Not only do we have Integration Generation 3, but a new independent Process Automation solution was launched in March.

To help differentiate the articles, where we can we’ll continue to refer to the Process automation that resides within OIC as PCS using the legacy name. Anything referring to the new Process Automation service we’ll identify as OPA. Differentiating Integration Generation 2 or 3 will be OIC2 or OIC3, respectively. If there is no generation number, then at this stage, you can assume the answer is quickly true to both generations.

July’s big news is the connectivity between OCI and Azure for Oracle to streamline Azure users accessing Oracle databases (here), and more importantly, for OIC users is the addition of new Sovereign nation regions (here). For OIC users this means the possibility of handling data that is more sensitive to where the data resides.
