Oracle has released Oracle AIA Foundation Pack 11gR1. The vendor asserts that the new offering will simplify and speed service-oriented development, deployment and delivery, and that partners and customers can leverage their existing application investments and jumpstart new application integration projects on Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g for increased business value and agility.
In addition to providing support for Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g, the Foundation Pack simplifies and speeds development of integration projects for business analysts, architects, developers, and application owners, effectively bringing the AIA programming model and best practices out of the documentation and into the toolset, an Oracle news release states.
Other features provided within the Foundation Pack are the definition and proposal of new services are captured through the decomposition of business process models by architects in an integration project workbench; and creation of new services are automated for developers through wizards and templates. Installation of composite business processes is simplified by application owners benefiting from the Foundation Pack through the creation of a comprehensive "bill of materials" that captures dependencies between services. The Foundation Pack 11gR1 also provides customers and partners with access to over 130 pre-built enterprise business objects and more than 1,200 enterprise business services, according to Oracle.
