Provides robust integration capabilities and extensive features but comes with a higher price tag and complexity in deployment and maintenance
Enhanced error-handling capabilities significantly boosted the reliability of our application, preventing crashes and ensuring high availability. For context, when dealing with critical services requiring 24/7 availability, we would often implement geographic replication and active-active modes. This setup ensured continuous operation, with one system seamlessly taking over in case of downtime. While automated processes are feasible today, we relied on monitoring tools to confirm operational status. Upon detection of any issues, the system would automatically switch to an alternate data center. Our architectural approach varied based on project requirements, prioritizing resilience and continuity. The distinction between traffic replication and backup lies in the time needed for restoration. By adhering to proper processes, both methods yield similar outcomes, with the primary difference being the time required for recovery. It aids in ensuring compliance with industry standards and protocols, although I'm uncertain whether the server comes with any preconfigured compliance settings. In my experience, I've been involved in PCI compliance and SOX compliance for large companies, and while considering the brand is essential, compliance configuration often extends beyond the software running on the network. Compliance efforts primarily focus on securing access and safeguarding information within servers or databases, rather than on individual software tools.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"It was very good at supporting high transactions, up to 300 transactions per second."
"It is lightweight and one can easily integrate with different applications, databases, JMS, or web services through different protocols."
"The most valuable feature is the adapters."
"Its ease of use is valuable. It's very easy to use. It's no code/low code. Oracle Middleware products are also rich in adapters."
"The stability is consistently high, with only one notable issue encountered."
"What I like most about Oracle Service Bus is that you can use it for many integrations. For example, you can use it for on-premises to on-premises integrations, on-premises to cloud integrations, and cloud to on-premises integrations."
"I like the ease of deployment and the ease of implementation."
"There are always continuous improvements that are happening."
"The drag-and-drop features for connectors are very valuable."
"The installation process is easy."
"The stability is excellent."
"The solution has two main parts: integration and transformation. It's very user-friendly and easy to understand for everyone."
"In my opinion, the most valuable aspect of this solution is its extensive range of adaptors and connectors. This feature holds significant importance and provides great value to users."
"The solution's customer service is good."
"Currently, I find the configuration part quite valuable, where you can easily configure things."
"The solution basically conforms to our standards."
 

Cons

"This solution should work better with RESTful services."
"If they can containerize this, that would be nice. If they can provide docker images and offer support for those containers, that would be great."
"The initial setup is likely complex for many organizations."
"What needs improvement in Oracle Service Bus is the connectivity between adapters such as the Salesforce adapter and database adapters. The limited number of adapters compatible with Oracle Service Bus makes you want to switch to a different solution."
"An area for improvement in Oracle Service Bus is the roadmap for its product launch. Currently, it's unclear, so Oracle should develop a roadmap for version 12c, so people can see what's coming out of that version of Oracle Service Bus. Cloud hosting is an additional feature I'd like to see in the next release of Oracle Service Bus."
"It needs to support more adapters, because the integration points keep changing and new things keep coming up. It also needs to be more scalable."
"Lacks sufficient cloud compatibility."
"The pricing of the product could be better. It's a bit high."
"The customization can be a bit difficult."
"If I have to buy software, then it becomes expensive for me."
"They should release upgrades more frequently."
"You cannot include the validation of XPath."
"I would like to see better documentation for the open-source version."
"In my opinion, the administration model and interface, of Carbon, are lacking in terms of its features and user experience."
"There are a lot of security settings that when you apply you have to re-apply again every time you modify a setting. It is something that really needs to be enhanced."
"I would like to see them bring back a feature, from earlier versions, that was very useful in debugging and finding issues."
