Oracle Managed File transfer in one shot..!

Oracle Managed File Transfer lets you perform the following operations during the transfer process:
·         Scheduling
·         Resubmitting
·         Attaching inline or referencing
·         Compression and decompression
·         Encryption and decryption
·         Archiving, renaming, and deletion
·         Purging transfer instances and files
·         Pausing and resuming

Oracle Managed File Transfer lets you track and troubleshoot file deliveries (transfer instances) based on the following:
·         Success, frequency, and failure statistics
·         Metrics, recent errors, file finder, and active deliveries
·         Error information table
·         Active delivery progress table
·         Reports for individual deliveries

Oracle Managed File Transfer lets you transfer files to and from many endpoint types:
·         File and FTP based endpoint types:
·         File: Transfer files from or to directories accessible to the Oracle Managed File Transfer server.
·         FTP Embedded: Transfer files from the embedded MFT FTP (File Transfer Protocol) or FTPS (FTP with Secure Socket Layer) server by copying the file into one of the embedded server directories.
·         sFTP Embedded: Transfer files from the embedded sFTP (Secure Shell FTP or SSH-FTP) server by copying the file into one of the embedded server directories.
·         FTP Remote: Transfer files from or to a remote FTP or FTPS server.
·         sFTP Remote: Transfer files from or to a remote sFTP server.
·          SOAP web-services based endpoint types:
·         SOAP: Transfer files from or to Simple Object Access Protocol web service endpoints inline or by reference to a folder location.
·         SOA: Transfer files from or to Oracle SOA (Service-Oriented Architecture) web service endpoints.
·         Service Bus (OSB): Transfer files from or to Oracle Service Bus web service endpoints.
·         ODI: Transfer files from or to Oracle Data Integrator web service endpoints.
·         B2B based endpoint types:
·         B2B: Transfer files from or to Oracle B2B (Business to Business) trading partners.
·         Healthcare: Transfer files from or to Oracle B2B for Healthcare endpoints.
Oracle Managed File Transfer is especially good for
·         Transfer of large files limited in size only by the operating system and capacity of the file system.
·         Transfer from a single source with fan-out to many targets.
·         Detailed auditing and recording of all transfers.
·         Advanced security for transfers.
·         Advanced transfer management, such as restart and pause/resume.
·         Use of an embedded FTP or sFTP server.
Oracle SOA Suite is especially good for:
·         Orchestration or complex integration, such as fan-in from multiple sources.
·         Integration with enterprise systems such as messaging or ERP.
·         Manual tasks, content based routing, or transformations.
B2B is especially good for:
·         Scenarios in which document format is relevant (for example, HL7, EDI, and so on).
·         Scenarios in which additional semantics, such as AS2, are required.

Designers: Designers perform these tasks:
  • Create, read, update and delete file transfer sources.
  • Create, read, update and delete file transfer targets.
  • Create, read, update and delete transfers, which link sources and targets in file delivery flows.
  • Deploy and test transfers.

Monitors: Monitors perform these tasks

·         Use the Dashboard and reports to ensure that transfer instances are successful.
·         Pause and resume lengthy transfers.
·         Troubleshoot errors and resubmit transfers.
·         View artifact deployment details and history.
·         View artifact dependency relationships.
·         Enable and disable sources, targets, and transfers.
·         Undeploy sources, targets, and transfers.
·         Start and stop embedded FTP and sFTP servers.

Administrators: Administrators perform these tasks:

·         All file handler tasks
·         All designer tasks
·         All monitor tasks
·         Add other users and determine their roles
·         Configure user directory permissions
·         Configure the Oracle Managed File Transfer server
·         Configure embedded FTP and sFTP servers, including security
·         Configure B2B and Healthcare domains
·         Backup and restore the Oracle Managed File Transfer configuration
·         Purge transferred files and instance data
·         Archive and restore instance data and payloads
·         Import and export metadata
