Overview of BizTalk Adapter for Oracle E-Business Suite
The Microsoft BizTalk Adapter for Oracle E-Business Suite exposes Oracle E-Business Suite as a WCF service. Adapter clients can perform operations on the Oracle E-Business Suite by exchanging SOAP messages with the adapter. The adapter consumes the SOAP message and makes appropriate ODP.NET calls to perform the operation. The adapter returns the response from Oracle E-Business Suite back to the client in the form of SOAP messages.
The Oracle E-Business adapter displays metadata of the Oracle E-Business Suite artifacts (PL/SQL APIs, interface tables/views, concurrent programs, and request sets) and the underlying Oracle database artifacts (such as tables, functions, and procedures) that describe the structure of a SOAP message in the form of Web Services Description Language (WSDL). The Oracle E-Business adapter uses the Add Adapter Service Reference Visual Studio Plug-in, Add Adapter Metadata Wizard, and Consume Adapter Service BizTalk Project Add-in to enable adapter clients to retrieve metadata for operations. The adapter also generates programming artifacts that can be used in your programming solution. For more information about Add Adapter Service Reference Visual Studio Plug-in, Add Adapter Metadata Wizard, and Consume Adapter Service BizTalk Project Add-in, see Connecting to the Oracle E-Business Suite in Visual Studio.
The Oracle E-Business adapter uses the Oracle Data Provider for .NET (ODP.NET) 220.127.116.11 to communicate with Oracle E-Business Suite. ODP.NET 18.104.22.168 is one of the components of Oracle Data Access Components (ODAC). You can use the Oracle E-Business adapter to communicate with Oracle E-Business Suite in the following ways:
By developing BizTalk applications. For more information, see Developing BizTalk Applications.
By using the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) service model. For more information, see Developing Applications By Using the WCF Service Model.
By using the WCF channel model. For more information, see Developing Applications by Using the WCF Channel Model.
