Business Services

Business services are activities that profit companies without supplying physical products. They include marketing, production, safety, cost and convenience functions — especially for larger companies that must keep up with work demands. These services are often outsourced because they require specialized expertise. A professional business service provider can help a company develop and grow.

Padgett specializes in helping small retail and service businesses grow their business by providing them with the tools, software and financial advice they need to succeed. The company helps ensure that records are complete, government compliance is met and employees receive their proper deductions. It also provides accounting, payroll, human resources, legal and tax advice.

Business consultants provide expert advice or services in a variety of business areas, such as security, management, accountancy, law, human resources, marketing and financial control. They can help a company improve its processes and operations, develop new products or services, identify and implement opportunities for growth, and solve specific problems.

The Business services Overview Editor in JDeveloper and the Create Business Service wizard in the Oracle Service Bus Console both let you create business services that use a WSDL-based or transport-typed service as its base. The Business Service Definition Editor displays a series of pages for configuring business service properties. The General tab lets you enter a description of the business service and specifies which transport to use. If the business service will use a system resource (such as SMTP servers or MQ connections) you must create that resource before you configure the business service.

You can specify a default value for the business service’s message content, and enable MTOM/XOP support. If you enable XOP support, outbound messages sent by the business service can include binary data encoded using XML-binary Optimized Packaging (XOP). You can also set up a business service to retry application errors.

The Performance tab allows you to enable or disable result caching for a business service. Caching improves performance by storing the results of inbound and outbound requests for the business service. You can also select whether to reorder the JSON payloads to match the order in which they appear in the XML schema.

The Monitoring tab lets you configure a business service to generate Service Level Agreement (SLA) alerts when conditions specified by the SLA are met. You can also configure a business service to send an email or notification whenever its configuration changes, such as when the status of the service changes from active to inactive. You can also define a set of properties that defines how the business service responds to certain errors, such as the maximum allowed time for a response. You can also define an SLA alert that includes the name of a business service and the status of the business service in question. You can also specify a custom error message for the alert.
