Oracle Service Registry 11.1.1 introduces a consolidation of previous BEA ALSR and Oracle Service Registry 10.3 products supporting WLS and standalone Jetty installer deployment options.
Oracle Service Registry is fully V3-compliant implementation of UDDI (Universal Description, Discovery and Integration), and is a key component of a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). Oracle Service Registry is an easy-to-use, standards-based mechanism for publishing and discovering Web services and related resources like XML Schemas or XSLT transformations.
Oracle Service Registry fully implements the OASIS UDDI V3 standard. Oracle Service Registry can be deployed in almost any Java environment and works with all popular database systems. In addition, the registry has been designed specifically for enterprise deployment and includes many advanced features that make it easy to configure, deploy, manage and secure. Oracle Service Registry is also easy to customize to support different enterprise user communities.
Oracle Service Registry extends the core UDDI V3 standard with unique functionality designed for enterprise applications:
Advanced Security allows for defining granular access control for registered components. Component publisher can specify find, get, modify and delete access permissions for every published object.
Data Accuracy & Quality enforcement mechanisms ensure that component registrations are accurate and up-to-date. Oracle Service Registry clearly defines responsibility for every registered component. It offers component promotion & approval mechanisms for promoting components between development, QA and production environments.
Subscription & Notification for automatically notifying registry users about changes to components that they depend on.
Selective Replication among multiple registries allow for automated propagation between different registries (for e.g. between internal and external registries).
Advanced Taxonomy Management for enforcement of well-defined taxonomies.
Powerful Management for granular control, logging and auditing of the publishing and discovery processes.
Performance & Scalability UDDI provides maximum performance and scalability by efficient implementation of web services stack and database algorithms and by supporting of a load balancing and clustering mechanism.
Oracle Service Registry is a platform-independent solution that can easy be deployed in a wide variety of settings. Crucially, Oracle Service Registry also integrates with LDAP directories, including Oracle Internet Directory and Microsoft ActiveDirectory.
