Aqualogic BPM Hardware/Software Requirements - aqualogic.bpm.modeling(Archived)

Could someone please point me in the direction where I can find recommended Hardware/Software requirements for running the process engine for Aqualogic BPM?
For example Servers/CPU's required, RAM Size etc. Also does it require supporting Oracle/Weblogic instances etc 

Take a look over this link.
Hope be useful ;-)


Get your voice heard..

As valued members of the Portal community, I would like to illicit some feedback from you on your Portal deployment experiences.
Over the years we have refined and improved our product installation and configuration experience so that the current release has certainly the cleanest and most reliable installation and configuration experience of all the the product releases.
We are currently in the planning phases for the next major iteration for Portal and we have an opportunity to change or improve some of the lifecycle aspects of the product.
In responding to this post, please respond with what you would like to see as a lifecycle experience, not what you think can be done ! We can always start with high goals and work downwards.. I would like to hear all your pain points, no matter how small or trivial. I would also like to hear your experiences of installing and configuring other non-Oracle products. Let us know how you think common deployment and life-cycle problems should be approached..
Please consider the following elements of a portal lifecycle and respond under those sub-headings..
• Initial Deployment - installation of a tier element on a clean machine.
• Redeployment - Deploying a tier element to an application server that has previously had the same application deployed to it. (i.e. moving a stage environment to a new machine for go-live)
• Undeployment - Removal of a portal installation from the application server
• Upgrade - In-situ migration of a midtier or infrastructure component from one version to another.
• Migration - Moving a complete portal installation (incl custom data) from one set of machines to another
• Cloning - Duplication of mid-tiers for scalability purposes. Possibly also complete architecture duplication for creation of test/UAT installations
• Patching - Both Oracle product patching and customer code patching
• Import/Export - The process for achieving some of the previous larger goals (e.g. cloning or migration), or simply providing inter-instance transport for content
• Backup/Recovery - Purposes of disaster recovery
• Other - Lifecycle or deployment areas not included in this list that you think are important
Kind regards

It would be nice to have a good documentation on how to move a Portal site from development to production environment!
There are lot of unanswered forum questions on this issue:
Separate Development Environments?
Deploying portal from development to production server
Re: Best practices for a development/production scenario with ORACLE PORTAL
re:What does a typical Development Environment Look-like
Other issue:
Can you tell me please about Portal statistics roadmap for future Portal releases?
Kind regards
Zsolt Lajosfalvi 
Most people use Export/Import for migrating content from one portal instance to another. This is documented in the config guide..
As for statistics, can you be more specific about which statistics you mean ? Performance ? Component Usage ? Breadcrumbs ?
I couldn't find recommendations on how to develop in Portal environment.
User guide, PKD developer guide and other technial docs are available, but I'm look for something else.
It should be a Developers Concept Guide or something like this.
I think I'm not the only one who miss this.
See all the unanswered forum questions...
I mean Portal Performance Statistic discussed in forum
Portal Performance and Scalability 
Developers Guide is at..
As for the performance reports then there is no cyrrent plans to enhance them beyond where they are today, although they will not go away. What enhancements were you looking for ? 
Hi Zsolt,
Just answered your 4 threads...
Separate Development Environments?

I hope it helps...

Please post your question on all Portal forums (PDK, Installation, etc.) and you will get more feedback.
1) SSL installation is just now possible and it should be much easier (less steps, automated, etc.)
2) Support global certificates (or at least say you don't on the documentation)
3) Allow mix of SSL and regular pages
4) Be very specific on the documentation as to what is or is not supported specially in terms of standards. The language used misled most people into thinking WSRP was supported two years ago, and that high availability was possible (not in the mid-tier until 10.1.2). Nasty surprises were ahead.
5) PDK support for ADF and ADF faces w/ REAL examples.
6) Create a "How To" set of documents for the Portal. They exist for every other product.
7) High availablity requires a re-install. It should not!
On my soap box,
The Oracle Portal is just adequate when compared w/ other Portals in the industry. A thorough feature comparison is something you need to complete.

SOA Documentation

Anydody have a specific document on SOA/BPEL/ESB architecture developments, HighAvailability system design startegies, trouble shooting etc?
I will be going to work on Architecture design, it will be first time where I am going to design the Enterprise systems. I have experience on process and application designs, but looking system design, specially performance, and trouble shootings etc things.
Hope even the document not specific SOA also helps me.
Here are sme good docs

Tell me five best features in AIA which are absence in SOA standalone

Can anyone tell all the possible maximum features and benefits of AIA for answering the question why AIA and not possible these benefits by taking SOA as standalone? 
Little help from myside!
Please look at the document "Foundation Pack 2.2.1: Concepts and Technologies Guide" and look for "How AIA Differs from Point-to-Point Integrations".....Ofcourse if you look at the white paper of AIA from the Oracle site, you will get all the advantages that are needed! Faster development cycle and high ROI are the two major to advantages..
Share the collected information if you have already found some answers around your question! 
It's not really about five, or a specific number of features or benefits. It's really about whether the web services are just being used in a point to point fashion or using a specific design pattern (see ).
AIA is a specific set of design patterns, reference architecture, programming guidelines, process models, business objects and pre-defined right sized business services ON TOP OF of Fusion Middleware SOA Suite (if that is what you meant by "SOA standalone"). Do you need it? Take a look here to decide:

Coding standards (SOA)

we require the guidance on the Coding standards/tasks to be used in the Oracle SOA suite.
Please let me know , if we have any thing like SOA suite product related best practices with respect to performance.
You should aks your Oracle Rep if they can assist you. There are / must be standards and coding standards. Most of them are specific to customer, such I have.
For performance issues; check the SOA config paramaters (tuning bpel in a nutshell on my blog) or the Oracle DOcs on this.
Most bottlenecks on performance are related in the application structure, not efficient use of SOA compents.
Thanks Marc,
Please let me know if you have any thing like, common coding standards for SOA.


Hi All,
I have learnt that , there is no more "Oracle Enterprise Server Bus (OESB)" offered from the Oracle. But Oracle has instead offer Oracle Service BUS (OSB). I am confuse about these two products different and how Oracle offer to the customers as the following :
1) Someone told me that Oracle still offer "OESB" as the product that bundle inside "Oracle AS EE" which is included with "WebLogic Suite" , IS it correct ? Is there any document from Oralce that indicate this fact ?
2) If there is no more "Oracle ESB (OESB)' why Oracle still have the datasheet from their Web site :
3) Some presentation from Oracle indicated that "OESB" will be changed to "Mediator in SOA 11g", Is it correct ? Then how differents in term of features between "OESB" and "Mediator (in SOA 11g)"
4) How different between "OSB" and "OESB" ?
Could you please help clarify these questions ? Thank you very much in advance.
Best Regards
Pearapon S.
A sort of confusion is inevitable when it comes to acquisitions. When Oracle acquired BEA, former AquaLogic products outshone those of Oracle. It will take time to settle down.
If the choice is up to you, than you should probably concentrate on OSB. 
1) Correct the pricelist should indicate this.
2) It is still supported and can be purchased.
3) Correct, this has been done. The features remain the same although Mediator handles state.
4) Very different. In 11g the architecture changes with the introduction of SCA. OSB is not part of this architecture as it is designed to mediate composites, whereas mediator is used for mediation within the composite. OSB has many more functions. Too many to list.
That blog is a good place to start. Bottom line is that both are strategic for Oracle and currently have no plans to drop any of them.
Thank you very much for both of you.
Your information are very helpful for me
