Email Attachments with OWSM in OSB

We all know that OWSM policies can’t be used when MTOM is enabled for the proxy services. Looking at the note ID 1347447.1, it seems that we don’t have OWSM support even for SOAP with Attachments (SwA) as well.

Following is the solution given in the metalink note.


Use WS-SecurityPolicy or policies packaged in WebLogic Server (see ) instead of OWSM.
Support for MTOM and SwA assertions with OWSM will be introduced in OSB 12


Managed Server Start issue

Getting the following error while starting the managed server. The admin server has been started successfully without any issues.

The issue has been resolved by setting WLS_USER and WLS_PW in startManagedWeblogic.cmd as shown below:


OSB Introduction

Recently, took help of following visuals to introduce OSB to an interested team comprising technical people of different levels. Just wanted to share the same.





Using FLWOR expressions in OSB

As Wikipedia defines FLWOR is an acronym: FOR, LET, WHERE, ORDER BY, RETURN. FLWOR is loosely analogous to SQL’s SELECT-FROM-WHERE. FLWOR expressions can be used in OSB.

If we are creating variables in assign actions for just intermediate XQuery expressions evaluation then ‘let’ can be used multiple assign actions into one to increase proxy service performance.

In the following screenshot, 1st assign action loads contents XQuery resource and stores it in ‘varConfigPayload’ variable. The 2nd assign action gets the proxy name sent in payload using ‘$body/Payload/ProxyName/text()’ and stores it in ‘varProxyName’ variable. And the 3rd assign activity uses ‘$varConfigPayload/ProxyService[@name=$varProxyName]/Flag/text()’ to get the value from XQuery resource and store it in ‘varFlagValue’ variable.


Assume that variable ‘varProxyName’ is not used anywhere else, then we can combine the 2nd and 3rd assign actions by giving the expression as shown in below screenshot.


This is how we can use the FLWOR expressions to combine multiple assign activities into one.
