Let's Develop the Integration in Oracle Integration Generation 3 Instance:



STEP 1: Create a Project.


Knowledge:  πŸ‘€ 
Projects? It Enables you to manage the entire life cycle of an integration from within a project. Your project contains sections for creating, designing, deploying, and monitoring your integration resources (integrations, connections, lookups, and JavaScript libraries)


    • Login to OIC Generation 3 Instance. In the navigation pane, click Projects.



    • Click Add, then select Create




    • In the Name field, enter 'My Temperature Converter Project(you can enter any meaningful name). Leave all remaining fields as they are, then click Create.

STEP 2: Create an Integration. Let's now create an integration inside the project

    • In the Integrations section, click Add. The Add integration panel opens.


    • Click Create, then select Application

    • In the Name field, enter 'Celsius to Fahrenheit' (you can enter any meaningful name). Leave all remaining fields as they are, then click Create.

    • The integration canvas opens with an option for creating a trigger connection. The trigger connection enables your integration to receive inbound messages from an application.



Note: πŸ–‰

As you design this integration, an error icon can appear on the right side of the page. Errors may occur due to mistakes you make in the mapper or Adapter Endpoint Configuration Wizard. Other errors that appear are resolved as you complete the design of all parts of this integration. Click the error icon to view details. To resolve the error, you can either follow the instructions in the Error panel or wait to see if your completed design resolves the issues. Click outside the Error panel to close it.

The Error icon shows a value of 4.

STEP 3: Create a Trigger Connection to Define a Celsius Parameter and the Content of the Temperature Converter Response (i.e. Fahrenheit).

Let's now create a trigger connection inside the integration canvas. The trigger (source) connection allows you to define a Celsius parameter and the content of the Temperature Converter Response to receive back from the Temperature Converter application (city, latitude, longitude, and other content).


    • In the Connections panel of the integration canvas, click Add trigger.

      The Create connection panel opens. Enter REST in the search Filed

    • Select REST as the adapter connection to use.

    • The page for configuring the REST Adapter opens. Enter the below information
      • Name - 'Temperature Converter' (you can enter any meaningful name)
      • Role - Select Trigger 

Knowledge:  πŸ‘€ 
Roles perform the following tasks.

Trigger: Enables an inbound application (endpoint) to trigger (run) the integration.
Invoke: Enables your integration to invoke an outbound application (endpoint).
Trigger and Invoke: Enables you to create a connection that can be used as both a trigger and invoke. For example, you use the connection as a trigger in one integration and as an invoke in another integration.





    • Leave all remaining fields as they are, then click Create. The page for configuring security and delivery methods for the REST Adapter trigger connection appears.
    • Enter below details:
      • Security - Select OAuth 2.0 to secure incoming messages.
      • Access type - Ensure Public gateway is selected. This access type uses the public internet to receive messages.

Click Test to confirm that you configured the connection successfully. When testing completes, a success message is displayed. Configuration progress is now 100% complete. Click Save. Click Back Back icon to return to the integration canvas. A menu shows that the newly created connection is available for selection





    • Let's now configure the REST Adapter trigger connection in the integration. During configuration, you specify details such as the operation, the relative resource URI, the query parameters, and the message payload content.
    • In the integration canvas, click the Temperature Converter connection shown in the menu. The Basic Info page of the Adapter Endpoint Configuration Wizard opens.
    • In the What do you want to call your endpoint field, enter 'GetTemperatureInFahrenheit', then click Continu to access the Resource Configuration page.



    • Enter below details:
      • What is the endpoint's relative resource URI: Enter /CelsiusToFahrenheit
      • What action do you want to perform on the endpoint: Select GET.
      • Select any options that you want to configure, select the following options:

☑️Add and review parameters for this endpoint
☑️Configure this endpoint to receive the response

Leave all remaining fields as they are. The completed Resource Configuration page looks as below. Click Continue to access the Request Parameter Page.

 


 

    • In the Specify Query Parameters section, click AddDouble-click the row in the Name column to enter a value.

 


    • Enter Celsius, then select string from the Data Type list

Note πŸ–‰
At runtime, you specify the Celsius on the Configure and run page to receive a Temperature in Fahrenheit.

    • Click Continue to access the Response page. Enter the below Information

      • Select the response payload format - Select JSON Sample.
      • <<< inline >>> Click this field and enter the following content, then click OK.
{
             "CelsiusToFahrenheitResult": "124"
          }

      • Element - Ensure response-wrapper is selected.
      • What is the media-type of Response Body - Ensure JSON is selected.



    • The completed Response page looks as follows. Click Continue to access the Summary page.



    • Review your selections, then click Finish.



The REST Adapter trigger connection is now fully configured for use in the integration. A map action is also automatically created for mapping data between the trigger connection and the invoke connection that you create in the next section.
