Continuous Integration using Oracle SOA Suite 12C: Part 1


Continuous Integration has been a big deal in Java land for many years now. We all want to integrate and test our software as soon as possible and preferably automated. With the new 12C edition, we can now build OSB projects and SOA composites using Maven. That is great because Maven has all sorts of nice features out of the box and available plugins. In this blog post I will Continue ReadingContinuous Integration using Oracle SOA Suite 12C: Part 1

We are going to use SoapUI for our tests, Maven for our build process, SVN as our repository and Jenkins as our Continuous Integration server. First we need a service which we want to test. Lets use a very simple Hello service. All this service does is greet the user. Continue ReadingUsing Jenkins to test your OSB/SOA Suite services

Checking SSL connection using Java

Sometimes SSL issues are the worst there are. Unreadable logging, strange codes and other unprehencible messages. There is a simple way to check if your 1-way SSL is being setup correctly using Java. Here is how it works: The first thing we have to do is to write a class which makes a simple HTTP request to a HTTPS url.
