Oracle Fusion Middleware User Guide for Oracle Enterprise Repository describes how to use Oracle Enterprise Repository for delivering governance throughout the service-oriented architecture (SOA) lifecycle by acting as the single source of truth for information surrounding SOA assets and their dependencies.
Oracle Enterprise Repository provides a common communication channel for the automated exchange of metadata and service information between service consumers, providers, policy decision points, and additional governance tooling. It provides the visibility, feedback, controls, and analytics to keep your SOA on track to deliver business value. The intense focus on automation helps to overcome barriers to SOA adoption and streamline governance throughout the lifecycle.
