33 Configuring Oracle B2B

This chapter describes how to configure Oracle B2B using Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control.

This chapter includes the following topic:

33.1 Configuring B2B Server Properties

You can configure the Enable Metrics property on the B2B Server Properties page, shown in Figure 33-1.

Figure 33-1 The Enable Metrics Property

Description of Figure 33-1 follows
Description of "Figure 33-1 The Enable Metrics Property"

The default is to enable EM metrics, which includes data on the top 5 recently active document types, top 5 recently active trading partners, and inbound and outbound endpoints.


You do not need to restart the server after changing this property.

To configure B2B server properties using Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control:

  1. Expand the SOA node.

  2. Select the SOA infrastructure, for example, soa-infra(11.1.1) (soa_server1).

  3. From the SOA Infrastructure menu, select SOA Administration and then B2B Server Properties.

  4. Select Enable Metrics to view data on the B2B Bindings and SOA Composite pages.

For information on using Oracle B2B, which enables the secure and reliable exchange of business documents between an enterprise and its trading partners, see Oracle Fusion Middleware User's Guide for Oracle B2B.

33.2 Configuring B2B Operations

You can configure the properties of B2B operations by setting values using the System MBean Browser, as shown in Figure 33-2.

Figure 33-2 B2BConfig: b2b MBean Browser

Description of Figure 33-2 follows
Description of "Figure 33-2 B2BConfig: b2b MBean Browser"


Restarting the SOA Server is required after updating the following MBean properties:
  • b2b.inboundThreadCount

  • b2b.outboundThreadCount

To specify B2B operation properties:

Note (a shortcut):

To access the Application Defined MBeans: B2BConfig:b2b page, you can also click the More B2B Configuration Properties link on the B2B Server Properties page, shown in Figure 33-1.
  1. Using the Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control Console, expand the SOA node and select the soa-infra node.

  2. From the SOA Infrastructure menu, choose Administration and then System MBean Browser.

    The System MBean Browser page is displayed.

  3. Under Application Defined MBeans, expand the node.

  4. Expand the Server:soa_server1 node.

  5. Expand the B2BConfig node.

  6. Click the b2b MBean.

    The properties of the MBean are displayed in the right pane.

  7. Click the Operations tab.

  8. Click an operation in the list.

    See Appendix B, "Setting B2B Configuration Properties in Fusion Middleware Control" in Oracle Fusion Middleware User's Guide for Oracle B2B for a list of property names and possible values, including properties for turning off validation during deployment, setting the MDS cache size, setting thread count and thread sleep time, specifying how functional acknowledgments are handled, setting payload obfuscation, and more.

33.3 Configuring B2B Attributes

You can configure B2B attributes by setting values using the System MBean Browser, as shown in Figure 33-3.

Figure 33-3 Configuring B2B Attributes

Description of Figure 33-3 follows
Description of "Figure 33-3 Configuring B2B Attributes"

To specify B2B attribute properties:

  1. Do Steps 1 through 6 in Section 33.2, "Configuring B2B Operations."

  2. Click the Attributes tab.

  3. Click Properties.

  4. Expand Element_0, Element_1, and so on to find the property you want to change.

  5. Note the property name and value and click Return.

    For example, under Element_3, you see the b2b.payloadObfuscation property with the default value false.

  6. Click the Operations tab.
