Advanced SOA Training (aka the “SOA Blackbelt Training”)

This training is intended for Oracle SOA Suite developers who have taken an introductory training from Oracle or who have participated in a SOA Suite implementation project. Much of the content was developed by the Oracle product management team and delivered previously in workshop formats and is intended to help turn SOA developers into experts. It covers many of the internals of the SOA Suite platform and advanced topics around components such as the SOA Composite, BPEL engine, Mediator and MDS. It is not an introductory or overview course but rather assumes a basic working knowledge of the SOA platform and goes deep into areas such as fault handling, performance tuning, transaction management, etc. The content is based on SOA Suite 11g, but is much more focused on BPEL and the SOA Composite engine, with little coverage of OSB.

The Advanced SOA class is hands-on, instructor-led training with a mixture of lecture and lab exercises as well as discussion among the students and the instructors. Come prepared to discuss your specific project challenges and also to share your experiences as we find that in an advanced course such as this, the students can learn a great deal from each other, beyond the structured content provided.

Note: the SOA Blackbelt training was offered publicly for SOA Suite 11g, but is not currently available as a public class. The Oracle SOA product management team plans to work with us to update this training for the latest 12c and cloud integration offerings, but we don’t currently have a timeline for that.

SOA Concept Training

Developed for a customer who wanted a reasonably product independent introduction to the concepts of SOA for their engineers who were new to the approach, this course is available in 2-4 day on-site formats. Lectures and lab exercises expose students to all the foundations of SOA, including:

  • SOA Introduction and Business Benefits
  • Key SOA Standards
  • Architectural Foundation: Web Services
  • SOA Architecture and Services
  • SOA Ecosystem
  • BPEL Deep Dive
  • SOA Governance
  • Business Process Modeling and BPMN
  • SOA Best Practices
  • SOA Methodology and Reference Architecture
  • SOA Vendor Platforms

Hands-on lab exercises can be done with simple individual tools to remain mostly vendor independent or with the Oracle SOA Suite.
