About Adapters for Oracle SOA Cloud Service

Oracle SOA Cloud Service includes a number of adapters.

All of the technology adapters delivered with SOA Suite are available for Oracle SOA Cloud Service Service Bus and/or SOA Suite domain types.  Connectivity to on-premises applications should be verified, and either SSH tunnels or VPN service should be used for connectivity to on-premises applications.

See Oracle Integration Adapters Certification Matrix for certification information about the various integration adapters.

B2B Adapter for EDI

The B2B Adapter for EDI Adapter provides a comprehensive platform for the implementation and management of business processes utilizing EDI and its related standards.

The B2B adapter for EDI is only available for use with the Universal Credits billing model and is billed as an additionally metered amount on the Oracle SOA Cloud Service OCPUs at the instance level during provisioning or scaling.  You cannot add the B2B Adapter for EDI to existing instances, nor can you remove it from an instance that it is assigned to.  The adapter can only be set during the initial provisioning process and can only be removed by deleting the instance.  Billing can be paused by stopping the instance, since Universal Credits model is billed by the hour. See About Oracle SOA Cloud Service Subscriptions and Licenses.

It is recommended that B2B processing be done in an instance separate from your SOA processing so that you can dedicate resources to CPU intensive tasks like the batch processing of EDI transactions and not impact your real-time SOA transaction processing.  For existing Oracle SOA Cloud Service customers that have metered or non-metered Oracle SOA Cloud Service instances, the recommended path forward for using the B2B Adapter for EDI, is to provision a new Oracle SOA Cloud Service instance in the Universal Credits account, and then use that instance exclusively for B2B processing.  This allows you to run an existing SOA instance in parallel with your B2B instance.
