This chapter includes the following sections:

For more information about adapter tuning and performance properties, see Oracle Fusion Middleware Performance and Tuning Guide.

30.1 Configuring the Endpoint Properties for an Inbound Adapter

This section describes how to configure the endpoint properties for an inbound adapter. It includes the following topics:

30.1.1 Editing a Predefined Property for an Inbound Adapter

The properties of an adapter are usually defined in Oracle JDeveloper during design time. However, it is possible edit the predefined properties at a later stage using Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control.

To edit a predefined property for an inbound adapter:

  1. Navigate to a SOA composite application by using either of the following options:

    From the SOA Infrastructure Menu... From the SOA Folder in the Navigator...
    1. Click Home.

      The SOA Infrastructure page is displayed.

    2. Click the Deployed Composites tab.

      The list of deployed composite applications is displayed.

    3. In the Composite section, click a specific SOA composite application.

      The SOA composite home page is displayed.

    4. Click the inbound adapter (service) from the Services and References section in the right panel.

      The Service Home page is displayed.

    1. Under soa-infra, click a specific SOA composite application.

      The SOA Composite home page is displayed.

    2. Click the inbound adapter (service) from the Services and References section in the right panel.

      The Service Home page is displayed.


  2. Edit a predefined property:

    1. Click Properties to see a list of the currently defined binding properties.

    2. Select the property you want to edit.

Note:

For Oracle MQ Series Adapter in an asynchronous outbound request/reply scenario, properties are differentiated by an (Enqueue) or (Dequeue) label. For example, QueueName(Enqueue) is used for putting a message and QueueName(Dequeue) is used for dequeuing the reply.

When editing Oracle MQ Series Adapter properties in this scenario, note the following:

  • If you change the ReplyToQueueName(Enqueue) property, you must also change the QueueName(Dequeue) property to the same value.

  • If you change the MessageId(Dequeue) property, you must also change the MessageId(Enqueue) property to the same value.

  • If you change the CorrelationId(Dequeue) property, you must also change the CorrelationId(Enqueue) property to the same value.
