    SOA - EAM capacity planning

    881076
      I have been handed an assignment to prepare "capacity planning documentation" for what is termed "Enterprise Application Messaging"(EAM). I am looking at the documentation for Oracle Fusion Middleware and in particular Oracle® Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle WebLogic Server 12c Release 1 (12.1.1) which has some basic installation prerequisites. This is a good start but I know that there is more to capacity planning in the context of this EAM notion like for instance a database to persist messages etc and then there are the "speeds and feeds" to consider.

      My question is: Are there any white papers, best practices or Open World presentations that are more current than the 10g documentation and presentations I have found on searching that would cast the Oracle Fusion middleware more in a "generic EAM context" than this 12 C product installation documentation I am looking at?

          Hi,

          Can you tell us what "Enterprise Application Messaging (EAM)" means for you? I confess I haven't seen this term around...

          Notice that Fusion Middleware 11g products are not supported on WebLogic Server 12.1.1... So if you thinking about SOA Suite you should look into these...

            Thank you for the quick reply and the great links you gave, I am reviewing them before proceeding.

            I agree, the EAM is a mysterious acronym...I'm not sure who dreamed it up, but to me, it means SOA and OSB and that is what we will be building in a new datacenter. I believe it may be a "home grown" acronym to try to keep from becoming too vendor oriented with our high level documentation...we have a bunch of Microsoft afecianados here who would like to place something like "Biztalk" into the mix, so maybe they got the powers to be to invent a more generic acronym.

            Yes, I have also found that I need to look at the 11g not 12C docs due to certification issues, hopefully resolved in a couple of weeks I'm told.

            There are some great diagrams you pointed me to and I sincerely appreciate your quick reply...thanks a million!
