Oracle Retail Integration Bus (RIB) provides application integration message processing for the retail application suite. RIB is comprised of a set of adaptors and messages that allow an enterprise to integrate both Oracle Retail and third-party applications together in a scalable and supportable fashion.
The components built on the Oracle Fusion Middleware platform to create the Oracle Retail Integration Bus include the following:
- Publishing adapters create messages from the information captured by the applications. These publishing adapters are designed to publish events from a single message family. Each is specific to an Oracle Retail application, such as Oracle Retail Merchandising System (RMS).
- Subscribing adapters are used to consume messages. These are specific to Oracle Retail and are designed to consume all messages from a specific message family.
- Transformation and Address Filter/Router (TAFR) adapters transform message data and route messages. There are multiple TAFRs specific to message families. Different TAFR adapters can be active on different message families or on the same message family, depending on the needs of an application. Not all message families require TAFRs.
- RIB database objects are Oracle objects and tables to support the PL/SQL message family API stored procedures that are called by the publishing and subscribing adapters. They are part of a specific PL/SQL Oracle Retail application, such as RMS.
- RIB Hospital database tables are to store and retry problem messages. Each PL/SQL or Java application has a dedicated Hospital. The RIB Hospital Administration application (RIHA) is the administration tool.
