Are you looking for a job in software development? If so, you should consider working with Oracle Service Bus. Oracle Service Bus is a platform that helps developers build integration solutions. It allows them to connect applications and data sources from different platforms and environments. In this blog post, we will discuss some of the most common Oracle Service Bus Interview Questions.
In this article, we will cover the following:
Most frequently asked Oracle Service Bus (OSB) Interview Questions
Ans: Service Result Caching is one of the options that you can use when you want to improve Oracle Service Bus performance. Service Result caching is used when we have a business service that connects to an external service that returns a somewhat static response. So by using Service Result Caching we don’t hit external service for the same request instead it will take the response from the cache which improves the OSB performance
Ans: We use the Service Callout option inside Oracle Service Bus to call any service inside the message flow to get the required data.
Ans: When there is an internal proxy call in OSB then we use "local" transport instead of HTTP.
Ans: When we route the request message to different business services based on request message content, that is called content-based routing.
Ans: We can read the flat files in two different ways.
Ans: A service-level agreement (SLA) is a contract between a service provider and a service consumer. In the OSB monitoring framework, we have SLA alerts that come into the picture when there is a violation of service level agreements.
Ans: In Oracle SOA Suite we use the "Move" operation to move large files from one location to another. But in Oracle Service Bus we don’t have that option available. But we can use the Content Streaming option available for file protocol in OSB to move large files.
Ans: We can do development in OSB in two ways. Either we can use Eclipse which is an IDE tool for OSB or we can use SB console for the development.
Ans: It is simple to work with the SB console as compared to the eclipse, so during the initial phase, we can opt for the SB console and later go for the eclipse. When we work at the enterprise level, Eclipse is always recommended.
Ans: No, we need not create a session when we develop projects in Eclipse, the session will only come into the picture when we deploy the project to the server from Eclipse.
Ans: Yes, multiple users with different user roles can work on the SB console at the same time as the session will be created for each user individually.

Ans: Yes, we can test the proxy service from Eclipse, for that, we need to right-click on the proxy service and then click on Run As and run it on the server.
Ans: No, we have to write Xquery in source mode. We can create an XQuery transformation in Eclipse.
Ans: Yes, we can test the Xquery transformation.
Ans: Yes, OSB supports both XQuery and XSLT.
Ans: It is a service in OSB that is used to connect to the target system.
Ans: Message flow is there in proxy service, we do all types of transformation, routing, and other processing message flow only.
Ans: No, we can't access variables in proxy service message flow from other proxy service message flow.
Ans: Yes, we can direct binding bindings to call SOA composites along with SOAP bindings.
Ans: During configuring file or FTP protocol in OSB, we need to specify the error directory, so you can see the file in that directory if file polling failed.
Ans: In short - For parallel processing. (Split-Joins let you send message invocations in parallel (in addition to sequentially) and aggregate the responses.)
Oracle Service Bus's Split-Join feature lets you split a service payload, such as an order, into individual messages for concurrent processing. Concurrent processing, as opposed to sequential processing, greatly improves service performance. Split-Join achieves this task by splitting an input message payload into sub-messages (split), routing them concurrently to their destinations, and aggregating the responses into one overall return message (join). This process of payload splitting and response aggregation is called a Split-Join pattern.
Static and dynamic.
Ans: By using a Java callout activity.
Ans: No, we can't use more than one route node in the proxy service message flow.
Ans: Throttling means we want to process certain messages at one time, and then we need to set some parameters in OSB to do the required task.
Ans: There are two ways to poll a file in OSB.
Ans: We can use a database adapter to read/write data from the database. We can create a database adapter in Jdeveloper, import adapter JCA, WSDL & XSD files to OSB, and generate a proxy or business service as per our requirement.

Ans: To perform file listing in OSB, you need to create a file adapter with file listing operation in Jdeveloper and use that only.
Ans: Message Flow is an OSB component that is part of the proxy service. We define our business logic in the message flow.
Ans: Start Node comes by default in message flow once we create a proxy service. Every message flow should always have a start node and we can't delete the start node in the message flow.
Ans: This action is used when we need to route the message to a business service dynamically which means at design time we don't know to which business service we have to route the message and that is determined at run time.
Ans: We use the "raise-error" action to throw business fault in the message flow.
Ans: It specifies that an immediate reply is sent to the invoker.
Ans: We use Alert, Log, and Report for OSB reporting.
Ans: Yes, we can change the file name at runtime using the Transport Header action.
Ans: Yes, we can do it by using the routing option action.
