Patterns for using B2B for Oracle Integration:
- Uses the basic building blocks such as the AS2, FTP, SOAP, or REST Adapters along with the B2B action to process B2B messages. This is the same as any other integration.
- You build the B2B integrations yourself and track the processing of B2B messages as integration instances on the Track Instances page.
- In this mode, the B2B trading partner definitions are not used.
B2B trading partner mode:
- Extends standalone mode and provides a fully declarative and configuration-driven setup with trading partner management and a specialized B2B message tracking user interface (the Track B2B Messages page).
- You define trading partner profiles at design-time and use them during runtime.
- You only create integrations to interface with your backend applications. Behind the scenes, however, message processing still occurs through integrations. The integrations are automatically created for you using templates available with B2B for Oracle Integration.
- In short, this mode provides you with a ready-to-use solution that you simply configure and use.
** B2B trading partner mode is only available in Oracle Integration Generarion 2 pack.
