4 Working with Projects, Folders, and Resources

This chapter contains procedures for working with Oracle Service Bus (OSB) projects, folders, and resources using the OSB Administration Console, including importing resources from ZIPs, JARs, and URLs.

The Project Explorer organizes configurations and resources into projects and folders. In the Project Explorer, you can display the Projects View Page, which lists all projects in the domain, and Project/Folder View Pages, which list folders and resources in each project.

Projects are non-hierarchical, non-overlapping, top-level grouping constructs.

All Oracle Service Bus resources (for example, services, WS-Policies, WSDLs, XQuery transformations, and so on) reside in exactly one project. Projects do not overlap. Resources can be created directly under a project, or they can be further organized into folders. However, you can reference any resource regardless of the project in which it resides.

When you create a domain in Oracle Service Bus, a default project is created.

4.1 Naming Projects and Folders

Project names and folder names are limited to 64 characters and must follow the Section 2.3, "Resource Naming Restrictions."

The names, length, and levels of nesting of projects and folders are ultimately affected by the limits of your operating system. Creating folders or projects with very long names or deeply nesting folders can fail due to the limitations of the operating system.

4.1.1 Qualifying Resource Names Using Projects and Folders

Projects and folders qualify the names of Oracle Service Bus resources. A reference to a resource is constructed as follows:

project-name/root-folder/.../parent-folder/resource-name

If a resource is located directly under a project, the reference is constructed as follows:

project-name/resource-name

4.2 Projects View Page

The Projects View page lists the projects defined in the current domain. Table 4-1 describes the options and controls on the page.

Table 4-1 Projects View Page - Options and Controls

Delete

To delete folders, select the check boxes next to the names of the folders to delete, then click Delete.

Create Resource

To create a new resource for this project, select a resource type from the Create Resource list. See Section 4.14, "Creating Resources."

Name

Click a resource name to display details about the resource.

Resource Type

The type of this resource.

Actions

The actions available for a resource depend on the type of resource:

  • The Edit Message Flow icon appears for proxy services. Click this icon to edit the message of a proxy service. See Section 22.1, "Viewing and Editing Message Flows."

  • The Launch Test Console icon appears for business services, proxy services, XQuery transformations, XSL transformations, and MFL files. Click this icon to invoke the Test Console, which you use to validate and test the design of services and transformations. For services, you can only use the Test Console at runtime; that is, when the session is activated. For transformations, you can use the Test Console whether you are inside or outside a session. See Section 33.1, "Testing Services" and Section 33.2, "Testing Transformations."

  • The Export WSDL icon appears for WSDL-based proxy services. Click this icon to export a WSDL, which you can then view or modify in an external tools such as an IDE.

    This is different than the Export Resources functionality in the System Administration module, which you use to move and stage resources between two domains. See Section 4.28, "Exporting a WSDL."

  • The Generate WSDL icon appears for transport-typed business services, such as EJB and Flow. Click this icon to generate a WSDL, which you can then view or modify. See Section 4.29, "Generating a WSDL."

Options

The Options column displays the following icons:

  • Click the Rename Resource icon to rename the resource. See Section 4.25, "Renaming Resources."

  • Click the Move Resource icon to move the resource. See Section 4.26, "Moving Resources."

  • Click the Clone Resource icon to clone the resource. See Section 4.27, "Cloning Resources."

  • Click the Delete icon to delete the resource. A Deletion Warning icon appears when other resources reference this resource. You can delete this resource with a warning confirmation. This might result in conflicts due to unresolved references to the deleted resource.

When you perform any of these actions, the result is saved in the current session. To end the session and deploy the configuration to the runtime, click Activate under Change Center.

  4. Follow the prompts to add information to each page to create the resource. For more information about creating each kind of resource, see the appropriate topic, as listed in Table 4-3.

  5. When you create the resource, it is created in the current session.

  6. To end the session and deploy the configuration to the runtime, click Activate under Change Center.

4.15 Loading Resources from a Zip File

You can select a Zip or JAR file that contains the resources you want to load; Oracle Service Bus locates and imports the resources from this Zip file.

Resources like WSDLs or XML Schemas can define full trees of dependent resources. The bulk load feature lets you upload a set of resources at once; you need not resolve the dependencies manually.

  1. If you have not already done so, click Create to create a new session or click Edit to enter an existing session. See Section 3.1, "Using the Change Center."

  2. Select Project Explorer, then select the project or folder to which you want to add resources. The Project/Folder View page is displayed.

  3. From the Create Resource list, select Zipped Resources. The Load Resources page is displayed.

  4. In the Select Zip File field, specify a Zip file to import. Enter the name of the file (qualified by its path); or, click Browse, locate the file, then click Open.

  5. Review the mapping of resource types to file extensions. Change or add extensions, according to your needs. Separate multiple extensions with commas.

    Each file in the Zip file is a possible resource, and the file extension is the commonly used way to identify the file type. Oracle Service Bus defines a default extension for each resource, but if you have additional extensions to describe those resources, this map enables you to declare those extensions to the loader.

    After you define the Zip file and extension map, the Oracle Service Bus loader scans the contents of the Zip file and tries to associate a resource type with each file. A file without an extension or one that does not have an extension defined in the map is considered unknown and is automatically excluded from the load.

    For known files, the name of the resource is the name of the file without its extension. The folder structure of the Zip file is recreated in the target Oracle Service Bus Administration Console folder.

    An extension can only be associated with one file type.

  6. Click Next.

  7. On the Load Resources - Review Loaded Resources page, review the resources you are importing. You can clear the check boxes next to any resources you do not want to include in this import.

  8. To import the selected resources, click Import.

  9. The Load Resources - Import Result page displays the imported resources. Click Load Another to import resources from another file, or proceed with other tasks by selecting a different page from the left navigation pane.

  10. To end the session and deploy the configuration to the runtime, click Activate under Change Center.

4.16 Load Resources - Select Zip File and Review Type Extensions Page

Use the Load Resources - Select Zip File and Review Type Extensions page to import resources from a Zip file, as documented in Section 4.15, "Loading Resources from a Zip File."

Table 4-4 describes the options and controls on the page.

Table 4-4 Load Resources: Select Zip File and Review Type Extensions Page - Options and Controls

Options and Controls Description

Select Zip File

Enter the fully qualified name of a Zip file to import, or click Browse to select it.

Resource Type and File Extension

Each file in the Zip file is a possible resource, and the file extension is the commonly used way to identify the file type. Oracle Service Bus defines a default extension for each resource, but if you have additional extensions to describe those resources, this map enables you to declare those extensions to the loader.

After you define the Zip file and extension map, the Oracle Service Bus loader scans the contents of the Zip file and tries to associate a resource type with each file. A file without an extension or one that does not have an extension defined in the map is considered unknown and is automatically excluded from the load.

For known files, the name of the resource is the name of the file without its extension. The folder structure of the Zip file is recreated in the target Oracle Service Bus Administration Console folder.


4.17 Loading Resources from a URL

You can perform a bulk import of resources available at a URL or on the file system. Bulk import lets you import a root resource, such as a WSDL, along with its dependents, such as other WSDLs and schemas. The dependency map is resolved automatically.

  1. If you have not already done so, click Create to create a new session or click Edit to enter an existing session. See Section 3.1, "Using the Change Center."

  2. Select Project Explorer, then select the project or folder to which you want to add resources. The Project/Folder View page is displayed.

  3. From the Create Resource list, select Resources from URL. The Load Resources - Load Resources from URL page is displayed.

  4. In the URL/Path field, enter the URL or path of the resource.

    To specify a local resource, you can use the file protocol with a file name fully qualified by its path, for example:

    file:///c:/osbresources/ForeachAction.jar

  5. In the Resource Name field, enter the resource's name.

  6. From the Resource Type list, select the type of the resource.

  7. Click Next to display the Load Resources - Review Loaded Resources Page. Clear the check boxes next to any resources you do not want to include in this import.

  8. To import the selected resources, click Import.

  9. The Load Resources - Import Result page displays the imported resources. Click Load Another to import resources from another file, or proceed with other tasks by selecting a different page from the left navigation pane.

Note:

If you use special characters in your resource names, the URLs used to expose the resources in Oracle Service Bus must be encoded in UTF-8 in order to escape special characters.

You can also retrieve WSDLs containing Oracle Web Services Manager policies so that the policies conform to supported WS-Policy and WS-Security Policy standards. For more information, see "Advertising WSDLs to Support WS Standards" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Developer's Guide for Oracle Service Bus.

  2. Select Project Explorer, then select the project or folder containing the resources you want to delete.

  3. Click the Delete icon in the row of the resource you want to delete. The resource is deleted in the current session. A Deletion Warning icon is displayed when other resources reference this resource. You can delete the resource with a warning confirmation. This might result in conflicts due to unresolved references to the deleted resource.

  4. To end the session and deploy the configuration to the runtime, click Activate under Change Center.
