Oracle Application Integration Architecture is application Independent approach to build Integration and business process flow, it doesn’t matter what the whether application is
- Oracle e-business suite
- 3rd Party
With AIA Oracle let the customer to enable best –in – class applications to work together as a suite, thus allows organizations to utilize the applications of their choice to create composite business process that are unique and best to their business and that to on a flexible Service Oriented architecture (SOA).It is Integration of reusable components ( Integrating not only processes, but the data and UIs too).
Above all, all the AIA products are supported by Oracle.
Oracle Application Integration architecture offers pre-built solutions at data, process and UI level and deliver complete process solution. All of AIA components have been designed to work together in a mix and match fashion and built for configurability.
Oracle has deliver AIA solution in below 3 categories.
- Direct Integration
- Process Integration Packs (PIP)
- Foundation Packs (FP)
Process Integration Packs (PIP) – This is solution to help customer to optimize the business processes. These are Pre-built composite business processes across enterprise Applications.
Foundation Pack (FP) – Foundation Pack let the user build the solution themselves based on your business requirements. Foundation Pack provide you all
- Best Practices
- Methodologies and Naming Standards.
FP is Pre-build Programming Model and includes Enterprise Common Objects (EBO) and Enterprise Business Services (EBS).
EBS is Library of the Pre-Build Services and EBO or the Business Objects. For Example we have EBO likes
- Sales Order
· Create Order
· Update Order
· Delete Order etc
Best of EBO and EBS are they are upgradeable and user can build extension for these EBO and EBS. These are not just the concept Oracle has built/Shipped the Real Code for these EBO and EBS.
With all these features available in FP , user can easily build Integration at there own if they are not interested in PIP. But I would like to make a suggestion to have a look at PIP before you try to build at your own using FB.
