From my point of view BAM is the product in SOA/BPM Suite that has the largest number of improvements. As mentioned in What’s New - release 12c is a complete restructuring of Oracle BAM. In the documentation it is described the integration with SOA(BPEL) and BPM Suite. One other product that fits BAM perfectly is Oracle Event Processing.
Here are some of the improvements/changes:
Some features are also removed, but in a a “remake”-version like this one I feel it was a wise decision. This BAM looks a lot better than the old one (which did look a bit old)
In the old version you had to use Internet Explorer – now the support is a lot better (as in all the 12.1.3 FMW-platform) . link click “System Requirements and Supported Platforms for Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c (12.1.3) xls”
There are many changes:
Here you can see how the different data Object Types can be combined:
BAM has embedded OEP, so it is now a separate part in the architecture – the “Advanced Continuous Query Service”.
One of the difficult things of using OEP is to write CQL. Even if you know SQL well, it is not allways easy to formulate the correct statement. BAM has found a good way to solve this. It gives you a set of templates that you normally would need. For full flexibility you would need OEP. Here are the templates offered for Continuous Queries:
Then you must configure – for example for the missing event, you must specify:
Using OEP you would have to make this in JDeveloper, deploy etc. I think this embedding of OEP is excellent!
Oracle Event Processing is not the most frequently used tool in the Oracle SOA Suite, but more and more people now know about it. With some of the new features in BAM 12c many people will probably use it, without knowing that it is actually OEP behind there. OEP has allways been open and easy to adapt to your needs, but with this version it will be easier to show value fast. My personal favorite in this version is the REST adapter.
For those of you interested in OEP – the following document describes What’s New in OEP 12c. This is the type of document that I think is really useful for us when a new release is available. The SOA whitepaper on 12c is also excellent. Read the full entry…
Oracle WebLogic Server instances are the foundation for Java EE applications and Oracle Fusion Middleware, including SOA, BPM, and so on. But even as important as Oracle WebLogic Server instances are for organizations, there are no out-of-the-box scripts for booting Oracle WebLogic Server instances automatically when the server itself boots.

We recently had presentations about Enterprise Manager 12c “Deep Dive” in Oslo and Bergen together with Oracle.
Here are to presentations I had about how you can install Enterprise Manager 12c, and how you can maintain it by patching the different components. I hope it might be useful for some of you.
Presentation about installation.
