Oracle Integration Cloud Naming Standards


Oracle Integration Cloud Naming Standards

Naming standards are essential in any integration project to ensure that all the components are named in a consistent and self-descriptive manner. This makes the project easier to understand, maintain, and enhance. Although Oracle might not prescribe a rigid set of naming conventions for Integration Cloud, following general best practices can lead to a cleaner and more manageable integration environment. Here are some general naming conventions that could be used:

  1. Use Descriptive Names: Choose names that clearly describe the component’s purpose, functionality, or role within the integration.

  2. Follow a Consistent Pattern: Adopt a consistent naming pattern across different components, making it easier to understand the role and function of each one.

  3. Avoid Special Characters: Use only alphanumeric characters, and avoid using special characters that may be reserved or have specific meanings within the programming or scripting language.

  4. Use CamelCase or underscores: Typically, CamelCase (e.g., myIntegrationFlow) or underscores (e.g., my_integration_flow) are used to make the names more readable.

  5. Include Type Information: Including information about the type of component can be helpful. For example, a connection to a specific system might include the system type and function, like SAP_HR_Connector.

  6. Versioning: If you’re using multiple versions of a component, it might be wise to include version information in the name.

  7. Environment Specifics: If an integration is specific to an environment (like development, testing, or production), including this in the name might be beneficial.

  8. Abbreviations: If your project includes many similarly named components, defining and using a standard set of abbreviations can keep names concise without losing meaning.

  9. Avoid Spaces: Spaces in names can lead to confusion and errors in some contexts, so it’s generally good practice to avoid them.

  10. Length Considerations: While names should be descriptive, they should also be concise enough to be manageable. This might be particularly important if the development or runtime environment imposes limitations on the length of names.

  11. Compliance with Corporate Standards: If your organization has specific naming standards or guidelines, make sure to comply with them.

  12. Language Consistency: Use a consistent language (e.g., English) across all names for consistency.

  13. Document Your Conventions: Document the conventions you adopt and ensure that all team members are aware of and adhere to them.

  14. Avoid Reserved Words: Make sure not to use any reserved words in the language or system you are working with.

  15. Use Lowercase for Resources: Some standards recommend using lowercase letters for resources, like URLs, to maintain consistency.

Remember, the above are general guidelines, and the specific conventions you adopt may vary based on the needs of your project, the tools you are using, and the standards within your organization. Always refer to any specific guidelines provided by Oracle or your organization.
