Oracle® Business Transaction Management

Release Notes

Release 12.1.0.5

E51569-01

January 2014

Oracle Business Transaction Management allows you to define and monitor transactions, and understand the business context of each transaction, including the transaction's consumers and business payload. You can also set performance targets for each transaction and monitor performance relative to those targets. You can trigger alert notifications when performance targets are breached or unusual conditions are met.

This document provides information about the changes introduced with release 12.1.0.5 of Business Transaction Management. It is recommended that you review this document before installing the product or upgrading to this version of the product. This document contains the following sections:

New Capabilities

The following sections describe new capabilities introduced with Release 12.1.0.5.

New Probes

The Oracle SOA Suite observer now includes:

  • SOA_JCA – Monitors SOA JCA adapters including AQ, Database, File, FTP, JMS, MQ Series, Socket, and Oracle Applications.

The WLS 12 JavaEE observer now includes:

  • AXIS - Monitors applications built with the Axis 2 framework. This update supports the Axis 2 Programming model but not the Axis JAX-WS Programming model as the latter conflicts with the native JavaEE JAX-WS probe.

  • JAX-RS - Monitors RESTful applications (JSR 339). WebLogic 12's default JAX-RS implementation is provided via Jersey 1.9; Jersey 1.7 - 9 are supported.

Known Problems

The following problems have been observed:

  • SOA Suite 11g PS5 bug impacting observer

    CR 13895209: INCORRECT WSDL FOR SOA PS5 WEB SERVICES. User Description: In SOA PS5, if WSDLs of different SOA web services import the same parent WSDL, a query WSDL of individual service might contain all endpoints from different services with the same address location. This affects BTM in that SOA web services importing the same parent WSDL might show more endpoints than they are supposed to have. Sites impacted by this problem should either download the SOA PS5 patch or upgrade to PS6.
