Introduction and Roadmap

This section describes the contents and organization of this guide—Oracle Complex Event Processing Reference Guide.


Document Scope and Audience

This document is a resource for software developers who develop event driven real-time applications. It also contains information that is useful for business analysts and system architects who are evaluating Oracle Complex Event Processing (or Oracle CEP for short )or considering the use of Oracle CEP for a particular application.

The topics in this document are relevant during the design, development, configuration, deployment, and performance tuning phases of event driven applications. The document also includes topics that are useful in solving application problems that are discovered during test and pre-production phases of a project.

It is assumed that the reader is familiar with the Java programming language and Spring.


Oracle CEP Documentation Set

This document is part of a larger Oracle CEP documentation set that covers a comprehensive list of topics. The full documentation set includes the following documents:

Samples for the Oracle CEP Application Developer

In addition to this document, Oracle provides a variety of code samples for Oracle CEP application developers. The examples illustrate Oracle CEP in action, and provide practical instructions on how to perform key development tasks.

Oracle recommends that you run some or all of the examples before programming and configuring your own event driven application.

Note: When you initially install Oracle CEP, you must chose the Custom option to also install the examples. The Typical option does not include the examples.
Note: If you previously installed Oracle CEP using the Typical option, and you now want to also install the examples, re-run the Oracle CEP installation process and specify the same Oracle CEP home directory; a later step in the installation process allows you to then install just the examples.

The examples are distributed in two ways:

The following four examples are provided in both their own domain and as Java source in this release of Oracle CEP:
