A Developer's Guide to 'Mashing Oracle' Applications

Enterprise Mashup Overview:

Enterprise Mashups provide a rapid, dynamic, and secure approach to solving problems by allowing users to quickly combine disparate information sources that may rely on mixed security models.

We've talked about how these mashup information sources can be anything in your organization, be it packaged applications, such as Oracle Siebel or PeopleSoft, RSS or Atom feeds, or web services, including SOAP or REST style service. These information sources can also be from a Microsoft environment, including SharePoint (such as calendar or event information) or Excel spreadsheets and the information source can be internal or external to your organization. So, Enterprise Mashups can bring together all the above types of information securely regardless of whether they originate from an Oracle environment, from a Microsoft environment, from inside your firewall or outside your firewall, etc.

Conversely, the mashups you create with this information can be published to your Oracle Portal or to your SharePoint Portal, given that Enterprise mashups support publishing into JSR 168/286/WSRP environments, as well as .Net native Web Part environments, such as SharePoint.

In this series of articles, we are going to review how to build mashups with the following Oracle enterprise applications:

   - Mashing Oracle Siebel

   - Mashing Oracle eBusiness Suite

   - Mashing Oracle PeopleSoft

The goal of these articles is to provide you a basic understanding of how to create mashup solutions with these Oracle applications and to help you understand the common patterns that exist in these mashups. The complete 'Developer's Guide to Mashing Oracle' is a three part series. Please begin with Part 1: Mashing Oracle Siebel. Part 2 focuses on Mashing Oracle PeopleSoft and Part 3 will be released in the coming weeks.
