Integrate Oracle Warehouse Builder with Workflow

Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting

Guide To Integrating OWB9.2 And Oracle Workflow

A recent posting on Oracle Warehouse Builder prompted some questions from readers on the process of integrating Oracle Workflow with Oracle Warehouse Builder; this integration has also been a 'hot topic' on the OTN OWB Forum. The OWB documentation stops short of explaining how workflow jobs, created using OWB9.2 and deployed using the Deployment Manager, are actually submitted and run using Oracle Workflow, and therefore Sonia Brown put together some notes on how this integration is achieved. 

The document covers the following steps, with a number of screenshots to illustrate the process;

  • Installing Oracle Workflow Server

  • Edit init.ora file 

  • Start Oracle Universall Installer for Oracle Database 9.2 

  • Install and configure Web Server 

  • Workflow web interface virtual directory mappings 

  • Installing Workflow help documents 

  • Set up a directory service for Oracle Workflow 

  • Verify your base URL 

  • Implement Oracle Internet Directory integration (optional) 

  • Implement Single Sign-On integration (optional)

  • Installing Additional Languages

  • Installing Workflow Builder Client (Optional) 

  • Installation 

  • OWB Configuration Settings 

  • Create Workflow Location 

  • Create a Process Flow using Workflow Location 

  • Set Properties of a Process Flow 

  • Deploy the Process Flow 

  • Process Flows using Workflow Server 

  • Launch process 

  • View Process Information 

  • Oracle Workflow Builder Import (Optional) 

  • Process Flow Import

There's also a viewlet available on OTN, that shows how Oracle Enterprise Manager can be used to run the resultant Oracle Workflow processes; one thing to be aware of is that the preferred database user credentials must be those of the Runtime Access User, whilst the Runtime Owner's details are used in the properties page.
