This appendix lists and describes the properties of Oracle JCA Adapters.

This appendix includes the following sections:

For more information, see Chapter 33, "Configuring Service and Reference Binding Components", in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle Business Process Management Suite.

A.1 Oracle File and FTP Adapters Properties

This section describes the properties applicable to the Oracle File and FTP Adapters, including:

For properties applicable to all Oracle JCA Adapters, see Section A.7, "Generic Oracle JCA Adapter Properties".

For more information, see:

Table A-1 JCA Properties for Oracle File and FTP Adapters

Property Description

Append

If this property is set to true, it causes Oracle File and FTP Adapters to append to a file on outbound. If the file does not exist, then a new file is created.

The file name can either be specified in the JCA file for the outbound operation or in the jca.file.FileName header.

AsAttachment

If set to true, it causes the inbound file to be published as an attachment.

BatchSize

Set it to the batch size for the batching transformation.

CharacterSet

Set it to the character set for the attachment. This parameter is not used internally by the Oracle File and FTP Adapters, and it is meant for third party applications that process the attachments published by the Oracle File and FTP Adapters.

ChunkSize

Set it to the chunk size for the chunked interaction operation.

ConcurrentThreshold

The maximum number of translation activities that can be allowed to execute in parallel for a particular outbound scenario. The translation step during the outbound operation is CPU-intensive and must be guarded because it might cause other applications or threads to starve. The maximum value is 100.

ContentType

Set it to the mime-type of the attachment. This parameter is not used internally by the Oracle File and FTP Adapters, and it is meant for third party applications that process the attachments published by the Oracle File or FTP Adapter.

DeleteFile

If set to true, the Oracle File or FTP Adapter deletes the file after processing.

DirectorySeparator

When you choose multiple directories, the generated JCA files use semicolon (;) as the separator for these directories. However, you can change the separator to something else. If you do so, manually add <property name="DirectorySeparator" value="chosen separator"/> in the generated JCA file. For example, to use comma (,) as the separator, you must first change the separator to comma (,) in the Physical directory and then add <property name="DirectorySeparator" value=","/> in the JCA file.

ElapsedTime

This property is used for outbound batching. When the time specified elapses, the outgoing file is created. The parameter is of type int and is not mandatory. The default value is 1.

Encoding

Set it to the encoding used for the attachment. This parameter is not used internally by the Oracle File and FTP Adapters, and it is meant for third party applications that process the attachments published by the Oracle File and FTP Adapters.

ExcludeFiles

This property specifies the pattern for types of files to be excluded during polling. The property is of type String and is not mandatory.

FileName

Use this parameter to specify a static single file name during the write operation.

FileNamingConvention

This property is used for the naming convention for the outbound write operation file.

FileSize

This property is used for outbound batching. The outgoing file is created when the file size condition is met. The parameter is of type int and is not mandatory. The default value is 1000 KB.

IncludeFiles

This property specifies the pattern for types of files to pick up during polling. The parameter is of type String and is mandatory.

Lenient

If set to true, then the Orcle File Adapter does not complain if it does not have enough permission to read or write to the inbound directory. The default value of this property is false.

ListSorter

This property specifies the sorter that the Oracle File and FTP Adapters use to sort files in inbound. You can set this parameter to:

  • oracle.tip.adapter.file.inbound.listing.TimestampSorterAscending in order to sort the file names by their modified time stamps in ascending manner or

  • oracle.tip.adapter.file.inbound.listing.TimestampSorterDescending in order to sort the file names by their modified time stamps in descending manner

LogicalArchiveDirectory

This property specifies the logical directory in which to archive successfully processed files. The property is of type String and is not mandatory.

LogicalDirectory

This parameter specifies the logical input directory to be polled. The parameter is of type String.

MaxRaiseSize

This property specifies the maximum number of files that the Oracle File or FTP Adapter submits for processing in each polling cycle. For example, if the inbound directory has 1000 files and MaxRaiseSize is set to 100 and the polling frequency is one minute, then the Oracle File or FTP Adapter will submit 100 files every minute.

MinimumAge

This parameter specifies the minimum age of files to be retrieved. This enables a large file to be completely copied into the input directory before it is retrieved for processing. The age is determined by the last modified time stamp. For example, if you know that it takes three to four minutes for a file to be written, then set the minimum age of pollable files to five minutes. If a file is detected in the input directory and its modification time is within five minutes of the current time, then the file is not retrieved because it is still potentially being written to.

NumberMessages

This property is used for outbound batching. The outgoing file is created when the number of messages condition is met. The parameter is of type int and is not mandatory. The default value is 1.

PhysicalArchiveDirectory

This property specifies where to archive successfully processed files. The property is of type String and is not mandatory.

PhysicalDirectory

This property specifies the physical input directory or directories to be polled. The parameter is of type String. The inbound directory where the files appear is mandatory. You must specify the physical directory or logical directory.

PollingFrequency

This parameter specifies how often to poll a given input directory for new files. The parameter is of type int and is mandatory. The default value is 1 minute.

PublishSize

This property indicates whether the file contains multiple messages and how many messages to publish to the BPEL process at a time. The parameter is of type int and is not mandatory. The default value is 1.

For example, if a certain file has 11 records and this parameter is set to 2, then the file will be processed 2 records at a time and the final record will be processed in the sixth iteration.

Recursive

If this property is set to true, then the adapter can process all the sub-directories under the main input directory recursively.

SequenceName

Specifies the Oracle database sequence name to be used if you have already configured the outbound Oracle File or FTP Adapter for High Availability.

SingleThreadModel

If the value is true, the Oracle File or FTP Adapter poller processes files in the same thread. In other words, it does not use the global in-memory queue for processing.

SourceFileName

The source file for the File IO operation.

SourcePhysicalDirectory

The source directory for the File IO operation.

SourceSchema

Set to the schema for the source file.

SourceSchemaRoot

Set to the root element name for the source file.

SourceType

Set this to native if the source file is native and xml if the source file is xml.

TargetFileName

The target file for the File IO operation.

TargetPhysicalDirectory

The target directory for the File IO operation.

TargetSchema

Set it to the schema for the target file.

TargetSchemaRoot

Set it to the root element name for the target file.

TargetType

Set this to native if the target file is native and xml if the source file is xml.

ThreadCount

If this property is available, then the adapter creates its own processor threads rather than depend on the global thread pool processor threads (by deafult, 4 of them). In other words, this parameter partitions the in-memory queue and each composite application gets its own in-memory queue.

  • If the ThreadCount property is set to 0, then the threading behavior is the same as that of the single-threaded model.

  • If the ThreadCount property is set to -1, then the global thread pool is used, which is the same as the default threading model.

  • The maximum value for the ThreadCount property is 40.

TriggerFile

The name of the trigger file that activates the inbound Oracle File or FTP Adapter.

TriggerFilePhysicalDirectory

The directory path where the Oracle File or FTP Adapter looks for the trigger files.

TriggerFileStrategy

This property defines the strategy that the Oracle File or FTP Adapter uses to look for the specified trigger file in the trigger file directory. The acceptable values are EndpointActivation, EveryTime, or OnceOnly.

Type

Set it to COPY, MOVE, or DELETE for the File IO interaction.

UseRemoteErrorArchive

This property defines where an error is archived during an Inbound Read. During an Inbound Read operation, if a malformed XML file is read, the malformed file results in an error. The errored file is by default sent to the remote file system for archival. The errored file can be archived at a local filesystem by specifying the useRemoteErrorArchive property in the jca file and setting that property to false. The default value for this property is true.

UseHeaders

This parameter can be set to true or false. If you need to read file headers and skip reading the payload while using inbound Oracle File or FTP Adapter, then set the UseHeader property to true.

This is typically used in large payload scenarios where the inbound adapter is used as a notifier.

UseStaging

If set to true, then the outbound Oracle File or FTP Adapter writes translated data to a staging file, and later it streams the staging file to the target file. If set to false, then the outbound Oracle File or FTP Adapter does not use an intermediate staging file.

Xsl

Set it to the xsl transformer between the source and the target.


Table A-2 JCA Properties Specific to Oracle FTP Adapter

Property Description

FileType

Set this property to either ascii or binary depending on the requirement.

SourceIsRemote

Set this property to false if you want to notify the Oracle FTP Adapter that the source for the IO operation is a local file system as opposed to a remote FTP server.

TargetIsRemote

Set this property to false if you want to notify the Oracle FTP Adapter that the target for the IO operation is a local file system as opposed to a remote FTP server.

UseNlst

Set this property to true if you want the Oracle FTP Adapter to use the NLST FTP command instead of the LIST command that the adapter uses by default.

UseRemoteArchive

Set this property to true to notify the Oracle FTP Adapter that the archival directory is on the same FTP server. If set to false, the Oracle FTP Adapter uses a local file system folder for archival.


Table A-3 Binding Properties for Oracle File and FTP Adapters

Property Description

ignoreListingErrors

Lets you control the behavior of the inbound Oracle File Adapter during the polling operation. If set to true, the Oracle File Adapter does not complain if it is unable to read from a nested folder.

IgnoreZeroByteFile

Set it to true if you do not want Oracle File and FTP Adapters to throw an exception during the outbound read operation, if the file could not be found. This property is ignored if the schema for the inbound file is anything other than Opaque.

inMemoryTranslation

This property is applicable only if UseStaging is set to false .If UseStaging is set to true, then the translation step occurs in-memory (that is, an in-memory byte array is created). If set to false, then the adapter creates an output stream to the target file (FTP, FTPS, and SFTP included) and allows the translator to translate and write directly to the stream.

jca.message.encoding

This property is used to override the encoding specified in the NXSD schema for inbound Oracle File and FTP Adapters.

notifyEachBatchFailure

Setting to true causes the Oracle File or FTP Adapter to call the Notification Agent's onBatchFailure every time an error occurs in a debatching scenario. If set to false, Oracle File or FTP Adapter call onBatchFailure only once after all the messages are debatched.

oracle.tip.adapter.file.debatching.rejection.quantum

This property lets you control the size of rejected messages for inbound Oracle File or FTP Adapter partner link. For example, if you set it to 100, it will cause the Oracle File or FTP Adapter to reject 100 lines from the file because the actual file is too large.

oracle.tip.adapter.file.highavailability.maxRetry

Number of times that inbound Oracle File and FTP Adapters retry to establish a database connection in distributed polling scenarios.

oracle.tip.adapter.file.highavailability.maxRetryInterval

Number of milliseconds after which inbound Oracle File and FTP Adapters retry to establish a database connection in distributed polling scenarios.

oracle.tip.adapter.file.mutex

Set it to the class name that specifies the mutex that you want to use for the outbound write operation. This class must extend the oracle.tip.adapter.file.Mutex abstraction.

oracle.tip.adapter.file.rejectOriginalContent

Setting to true causes Oracle File or FTP Adapter to reject the original content. If set to false, the adapter rejects the XML data created as a result of the translation step.

oracle.tip.adapter.file.timeout.recoverpicked.minutes

This property is used by the inbound highly available adapter when using FILEADAPTER_IN as the coordinator. Remember that when a file is first claimed (enqueued) by a node for processing, the FILE_PROCESSED column in FILEADAPTER_IN is set to 0. At a later point in time, when one of the decoupled processor threads picks up the file for processing, the value of the FILE_PROCESSED column is updated from 0 to 1. And when the file is processed completely, the FILE_PROCESSED column is updated from 1 to 2. However, if the processor thread picks up a file but the node crashes before processing the file, then the file will never be processed. This property is used to undo the pick operation. The adapter does this by deleting the entries in the FILEADAPTER_IN table that have been picked up but not processed within the value specified here.

oracle.tip.adapter.file.timeout.recoverunpicked.minutes

This property is used by the inbound highly available adapter when using FILEADAPTER_IN as the coordinator. Remember that when a file is first claimed by a node for processing, FILE_PROCESSED column in FILEADAPTER_IN is set to 0. Later on, when the decoupled-processor thread picks up the file for processing, the value of the FILE_PROCESSED column is updated from 0 to 1. And when the file is processed completely, the FILE_PROCESSED column is updated from 1 to 2. If the node crashes when the FILE_PROCESSED is still 0, it would mean that the file is enqueued by a node (this means no other nodes can pick this one up). However, it also means that the decoupled processor threads have still not picked this one for processing. This property is used to undo the claim(enqueue_ operation.) The adapter does this by deleting the entries in the FILEADAPTER_IN table that have been claimed (for example, FILE_PROCESSED =="0"), but not picked up till now.

recoveryInterval

This property is used by the inbound adapter to configure the recovery interval in case of errors. For example, if the physical directory is nonexistent, then the adapter uses this value to perform periodic sleep or wakeup checks to check whether the physical directory has been created and is accessible.

serializeTranslation

If set to true, then the translation step is serialized using a semaphore. The number of permits for semaphore (guarding the translation step) comes from the ConcurrentThreshold property. If false, then the translation step occurs outside the semaphore.

useFileSystem

This property is used by inbound Oracle File or FTP Adapter during read-only polling in a clustered environment. Setting it to true causes the adapter to use the file system to store the metadata of the already processed files. Setting it to false causes the adapter to use a database table.


Table A-4 Binding Properties Specific to Oracle FTP Adapter

Property Description

timestampOffset

This property is used by the Oracle FTP Adapter to handle time zone issues, typically to convert the time difference between the FTP server and the system on which the Oracle FTP Adapter is running to millisecond.


Table A-5 JCA Properties for Oracle File Adapter: Normalized Properties

Property Description

jca.file.FileName

This property specifies the name of the file read from the inbound directory or written to the outbound directory.

jca.file.Directory

This property specifies the name of the directory from which file is read from or written to.

jca.file.Size

This property specifies the size of the file published from the inbound Oracle File Adapter.

jca.file.Batch

This property is used to specify a unique identifier for the file being published from the inbound adapter.

jca.file.BatchIndex

If a file has multiple messages and de-batching is used, then this normalized property specifies the message (record) number from the same batch. In this case, the jca.file.Batch will remain the same but jca.file.BatchIndex will increment by one for each publish from the same batch.


Table A-6 JCA Properties for Oracle FTP Adapter: Normalized Properties

Property Description

jca.ftp.FileName

This property specifies the name of the file read from the inbound directory or written to the outbound directory.

jca.ftp.Directory

This property specifies the name of the directory from which file is read from or written to.

jca.ftp.Size

This property specifies the size of the file published from the inbound Oracle File Adapter. The size can be zero.

jca.ftp.Batch

This property is used to specify a unique identifier for the file being published from the inbound Oracle FTP Adapter.

jca.ftp.BatchIndex

If a file has multiple messages and de-batching is used, then this normalized property specifies the message (record) number from the match batch. In this case, the jca.ftp.Batch will remain the same but jca.ftp.BatchIndex will increment by one for each publish from the same batch.


A.2 Oracle Socket Adapter Properties

This section describes the properties applicable to the Oracle Socket Adapter, including:

For properties applicable to all Oracle JCA Adapters, see Section A.7, "Generic Oracle JCA Adapter Properties".

For more information, see Section 33.1.2.7, "Oracle Socket Adapter", in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle Business Process Management Suite.

Table A-7 JCA Properties for Oracle Socket Adapter

Property Description

ByteOrder

Byte order of the remote machine being communicated with.

CustomImpl

If CustomImpl is chosen as the TransMode property, then it is the name of the Java class defining the handshake. This property is a concrete implementation of the ICustomParser interface.

Encoding

Character encoding used by the remote computer.

Host

In case of outbound, the computer name on which the socket server is running, to which you want to connect. In case of inbound, it is always localhost.

Port

In case of outbound, it is the port number on which a socket server is running, to which the adapter will be connecting.

In case of inbound, it is the port number on which the socket adapter listens for incoming connections.

ReplyXslt

If XSLT is chosen as the TransMode property, then it specifies the path to the style sheet defining the handshake for inbound reply.

TransMode

Mechanism for defining the protocol. Set to XSLT to use style sheets, set to CustomImpl to use custom Java code, and set to NXSD for plain schema translation.

Xslt

If XSLT is chosen as the TransMode property, then it specifies the path to the stylesheet defining the handshake for inbound request, in case of inbound and outbound request or reply.


A.3 Oracle AQ Adapter Properties

This section describes the properties applicable to the Oracle AQ Adapter, including:

For properties applicable to all Oracle JCA Adapters, see Section A.7, "Generic Oracle JCA Adapter Properties".

For more information, see Section 33.1.2.1, "Oracle AQ Adapter", in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle Business Process Management Suite.

Table A-8 JCA Properties for Oracle AQ Adapter

Property Description

QueueName

The name of the AQ Queue being read from or written to.

DatabaseSchema

The schema where the queue resides. If not specified, the schema of the current connection will be used.

SchemaValidation

When this property is set to "true", the payload is validated against the schema specified. If the validation fails, then the message is rejected.

EnableStreaming

When this property is set to "true", the payload from the queue is streamed instead of being processed as an in-memory DOM. You must use this feature while handling large payloads. This property is applicable when processing RAW messages, XMLType messages, and ADT type messages for which a payload is specified through an ADT attribute.

RecipientList

Specify the consumer name or names that are the intended recipients for the messages enqueued by the adapter. The message remains in the queue until all recipients have dequeued the message. If the field is left empty, then all the currently active consumers are recipients.

Consumer

Applicable only for multi-consumer queues. If specified, only the messages targeted for the particular consumer will be made available for processing.

ObjectFieldName

This property is used to identify the field containing the business payload if the queue is an ADT queue. You can specify an attribute of ADT to constitute a payload or an entire ADT to represent payload. In former case the 'ObjectFieldName' should be same as the attribute name of the ADT. In latter case this property is not specified.

PayloadHeaderRequired

Only applicable if the ObjectFieldName property specifies a value. If set to "true", it will ensure that all non payload attributes of ADT are available for processing as Normalized Message property 'jca.aq.HeaderDocument'.

MessageSelectorRule

When a dequeue is performed from a multiconsumer queue, it is sometimes necessary to screen the messages and accept only those that meet certain conditions. These conditions can be based on payload or queue header values and is specified using MessageSelectorRule property of the adapter. These conditions may concern selecting messages of a certain priority, or some aspect of the message payload, such as in selecting only loan applications above $100,000.

DequeueCondition

This property is valid for dequeue operations only. Enter a Boolean expression similar to the WHERE clause of a SQL query. This expression can include conditions on message properties, user data properties (object payloads only), and PL/SQL or SQL functions. If more than one message satisfies the dequeue condition, then the order of dequeuing is indeterminate, and the sort order of the queue is not honored.

Correlation

You can assign an identifier to each message, thus providing a means to retrieve specific messages at a later time. The value to enter is agreed upon between the enqueuing sender and the dequeuing receiver for asynchronous conversations. This can be overridden on a per message basis through the normalized message property, 'jca.aq.Correlation'. When specified for the dequeue operation, it only dequeues messages that match the value specified. If none is specified, all messages in the queue are available to the dequeue operation.

PayloadSizeThreshold

This property exposes a configurable control mechanism through which you can specify the payload size threshold in the adapter layer. The messages that have sizes beyond the configured threshold limit are rejected. If this property is not configured, it does not impose any restriction on the size of messages.


Table A-9 JCA Properties for Oracle AQ Adapter: Normalized Properties

Property Description

jca.aq.Attempts

The number of failed attempts at dequeuing the message.

jca.aq.Correlation

User-assigned correlation ID.

jca.aq.Delay

The number of seconds after which the message is available for dequeuing.

jca.aq.EnqueueTime

The time at which the message was enqueued.

jca.aq.ExceptionQueue

The exception queue name.

jca.aq.Expiration

The number of seconds before the message expires. This parameter is an offset from the Delay parameter. Default value of -1(never expires) is used if not specified.

jca.aq.MessageId

The hexadecimal representation of the message ID for the dequeued message.

jca.aq.OrigMessageId

The hexadecimal representation of the original message ID.

jca.aq.Priority

Priority of the message. A smaller number indicates a higher priority. The priority can be any number. The default value is zero.

jca.aq.RecipientList

The list of recipients for this message, separated by commas. This overrides RecipientList in InteractionSpec.

jca.aq.HeaderDocument

Contains string or DOM of current headers (XML DOM representation of payload headers.)


Table A-10 Binding Properties for Oracle AQ Adapter

Property Description

ConnectionRetryDelay

The time for which the Oracle AQ Adapter will wait before trying to re-create a connection after a connection is lost. The default value is 15s.

DequeueTimeOut

It is the interval after which the dequeue() API will time out if no message is received on the inbound queue. The default value is 1s.

adapter.aq.dequeue.threads

Specifies the number of poller threads that are created when an endpoint is activated. The default value is 1.


A.4 Oracle JMS Adapter Properties

This section describes the properties applicable to the Oracle JMS Adapter, including:

For properties applicable to all Oracle JCA Adapters, see Section A.7, "Generic Oracle JCA Adapter Properties".

For more information, see Section 33.1.2.5, "Oracle JMS Adapter", in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle Business Process Management Suite

Table A-11 JCA Properties for Oracle JMS Adapter

Property Description

DestinationName

The name of the queue or topic being read from or written to.

UseMessageListener

The only value of this property supported in the current version is false. A value of false ensures that the JMS adapter uses synchronous mechanism to poll queues or topics for messages

PayloadType

This property specifies the type of JMS message that is being dequeued or enqueued by the adapter. For Map messages the value is 'MapMessage' and for Text messages the value is 'TextMessage'.

DurableSubscriber

Name used to identify a durable subscription. When working with durable subscriptions ensure that ClientID is also specified in addition to DurableSubscriber property. ClientID is specified as part of the factoryProperties property when defining a Managed Connection Factory instance. This property is only applicable when working with JMS Topic scenarios

MessageSelector

A string whose syntax is based on a subset of the SQL92 conditional expression syntax and lets you specify the messages adapter is interested in, by using header field references and property references. Only messages whose header and property values match the selector are delivered.

PayloadEntry

Only applicable when dealing with messages of type MapMessage. This property is used to identify the field containing the business payload when dealing with Map messages. All other Map message entries are made available as normalized message properties accessed using jca.jms.Map.MapMessage entry name

AttachmentList

Only applicable when dealing with message of type MapMessage. This property is used to identify the field containing the business payload when dealing with Map messages. Also, the payload in this case will be published as an attachment. Either PayloadEntry or AttachmentList can be used. All other Map message entries are made available as normalized message properties accessed using jca.jms.Map.MapMessage entry name

RequestDestinationName

This property is applicable for a synchronous request-reply scenario and specify the name of destination for sending a message.

ReplyDestinationName

This property is applicable for a synchronous request-reply scenario and specify the name of destination for receiving a reply.

AllowTemporaryReplyDestination

This property is applicable for a synchronous request-reply scenario. When set to true ReplyDestinationName is not required and JMS adapter in turn uses a temporary destination to recieve a reply from.

EnableStreaming

When this property is set to "true", the payload from the queue or topic is streamed instead of being processed as an in-memory DOM. You must use this feature while handling large payloads.

DeliveryMode

Represents the delivery mode to use. The message producer's default delivery mode is PERSISTENT. This can be overridden on a per message basis using normalized message property jca.aq.JMSDeliveryMode

TimeToLive

Represents the message's lifetime (in milliseconds). The message producer's default time to live is unlimited; the message never expires. A value of 0 signifies that the message never expires.

PayloadSizeThreshold

This property exposes a configurable control mechanism through which you can specify the payload size threshold in the adapter layer. The messages that have sizes beyond the configured threshold limit are rejected. If this property is not configured, it does not impose any restriction on the size of messages

Priority

Represents priority for this message. The message producer's default priority is 4. This can be overridden on a per message basis using normalized message property jca.aq.JMSPriority


Table A-12 JCA Properties for Oracle JMS Adapter: Normalized Properties

Property Description

jca.jms.JMSDestinationName

This property specifies the destination to which the message is sent, and is set by the JMS producer.

jca.jms.JMSDestinationProperties

This property represents the properties that define the context used to look up the destination object to which the message must be sent

jca.jms.JMSCorrelationID

This property is set by both producers and consumers for linking the response message with the request message. This is an optional attribute.

jca.jms.JMSType

This property specifies the JMS message type.

jca.jms.JMSReplyTo

This is an optional attribute that indicates the destination to which a message reply must be sent.

jca.jms.JMSPriority

This property is used by the consumer to set a priority number between 0 and 9. Larger numbers represent a higher priority.

jca.jms.JMSExpiration

This property specifies the duration of the message before the expiration. When a message's expiration time is reached, the JMS provider should discard it.

jca.jms.JMSDeliveryMode

This property is set to persistent or nonpersistent mode by the JMS client.

jca.jms.JMSMessageID

This property is used to specify a unique message identifier. The exact scope of uniqueness is provider-defined.

jca.jms.JMSRedelivered

This property is used as an indication of whether a message is being re-delivered. If a client receives a message with the JMSRedelivered field set, it is likely, but not guaranteed, that this message was delivered earlier but that its receipt was not acknowledged at that time.

jca.jms.JMSTimestamp

This property is used to specify the time when the message was handed off to the JMS provider to be sent.

jca.jms.JMSProperty.name

This property represents any custom (application-specific) properties of the message.

jca.jms.Map.name

This property represents any MapMessage element that is not transferred as payload.


Table A-13 Binding Properties for Oracle JMS Adapter

Property Description

adapter.jms.encoding

Used to encode inbound text messages. This property is superseded by the newly supported property called jca.message.encoding that is applicable for both inbound and outbound messages.

adapter.jms.receive.threads

Specifies the number of poller threads that are created when an endpoint is activated. The default is 1.

adapter.jms.receive.timeout

Timeout value used for the synchronous receive call. It is the time after which receive() API will time out if no message is received on the inbound queue. The default value is 1s.

adapter.jms.registration.interval

This property is not supported anymore.

adapter.jms.retry.interval

Used by the inbound connection retry layer. The time for which the Oracle JMS Adapter will wait before trying to re-create a connection after a connection is lost. The default value is 30s.

JMSReplyToDestinationProperties

Declaratively impose custom property settings on Destination objects received during inbound request/reply scenarios.

JMSReplyUseCorrelationIdForCorrelation

Used to specify whether correlation Id should be used for correlation. Valid values are true and false. The default value is false.

JMSReplyUseMessageIdForCorrelation

Used to specify whether message Id should be used for correlation. Valid values are true and false. The default value if none is specified is false.

JMSReplyPropagateJMSExpiration

The boolean property specifies if the reply message TTL is set to 0 (message never expires) or some specified value related to message expiration. The default value is false.

requestReply.cacheReceivers

If the same small number of JMS receivers are used for the same request destination repeatedly, then set this property to true to improve performance. The default value if none is specified is false.

requestReply.useCorrelation

Applicable for a synchronous request-reply scenario. If set to true, then it applies a JMS Message selector for obtaining the reply message. If the request Normalized Message property, jca.jms.JMSCorrelationID is specified, then it is used for correlation, otherwise the JMS Message ID property is used. The JMS adapter uses the following message selector: "JMSCorrelationID = '<corrId>' [ AND (<wsdlSelector>) ]" where the AND branch is only included if the user specifies a MessageSelector property. The default value is true.

suppressHeaders

Used to bypass headers. For scenarios in which a composite does not use or produce the headers, the value of true can be used. It may improve performance for such scenarios. The default value is false.


A.5 Oracle Database Adapter Properties

This section describes the properties applicable to the Oracle Database Adapter, including:

For properties applicable to all Oracle JCA Adapters, see Section A.7, "Generic Oracle JCA Adapter Properties".

For more information, see:

Table A-14 JCA Properties for Oracle Database Adapter: Instance Properties

Property Description

dataSourceName

Either this property or xADataSource name is a mandatory property, or both. Refers to the JNDI name (jdbc/...) of the tx-level="local" data source connecting to. All operations using this pool will be locally transacted, independent on the global transaction. If both xADataSourceName and dataSourceName are specified, then the latter will be used for READ operations.

logTopLinkAll

The default value is FALSE. You must increase DB Adapter logging to include all underlying TopLink log messages at maximum granularity. This property provides maximum visibility, but adapter logging is already tuned to show the most relevant TopLink SQL logging.

platformClassName

This is a mandatory property. This points to the type of database being connected to. The suggested values for this property are:

You also can give the full package and class name of a subclass of oracle.toplink.platform.database.DatabasePlatform. For DB2 on AS/400, Oracle recommends that you give the value of oracle.tip.adapter.db.toplinkext.DB2AS400Platform.

usesBatchWriting

The default value is TRUE. Multiple identical statements will be executed as a single batch statement. You must only disable this property for certain JDBC drivers that have known issues.

usesSkipLocking

The default value is TRUE. Oracle Database polling statements using SELECT FOR UPDATE will automatically be upgraded to SELECT FOR UPDATE SKIP LOCKED, which provides better concurrent performance. Disable this property only for certain cases where skip locking is not compatible with another feature or your use case.

usesNativeSequencing

The default value is TRUE. If any SOA services are configured to automatically assign sequence numbers on INSERT operation, then a TRUE value indicates that the sequence values are coming from a database native sequence.

xADataSourceName

This is a mandatory property. It specifies the JNDI name (jdbc/...) of the tx-level="global" data source connecting to the database. All operations using this pool will bind to the global transaction and commit or roll back as a unit.
