oracle JCAPS Interview questions with Answers
1) Full form of CAPS
Composite Application Platform Suite.
2) What is Collaboration
A logical operation performed between some combination of message destinations and
external applications. The operation is defined by a Collaboration Definition, which can
be encoded in either Java or XSLT.
3) What is a Connectivity Map
Contains business logic and routing information about the data transmission. A
Connectivity Map usually includes one or more Collaborations, topics, queues, and
eWays. A Connectivity Map is created under a Project. A Project may have multiple
4) What is Deployment Profile
Contains the information about how the Project components will be deployed in an
Environment. A Project can have multiple Deployment Profiles, but only one
Deployment Profile can be activated for a Project in any one Environment.
5) What is Environment
A collection of physical resources and their configurations that are used to host Project
components. An Environment contains logical hosts and external systems.
6) What is a eWay
A link between a Collaboration and an external connection including the message
server connection (topic or queue) or external application.
7) What is a External Application
A logical representation in an eGate Project of an external application.
8) What is a External System
A representation in an eGate Project of an external application system.
9)What is a Integraion Server
J2EE software platform that houses the business logic container used to run
Collaborations and JCA connectors (eWays). Provides transaction services, persistence,
and external connectivity.
9) What is a JMS IQ Manager
JMS-compliant, guaranteed delivery store, forwarding, and queueing service.
The JMS Connection between a Collaboration and a topic or queue in a JMS-compliant
10) What is a Logical Host
An instance of the eGate runtime Environment that is installed on a machine. A Logical
Host contains the software and other installed components that are required at
runtime, such as application and message servers.
11)What is a Management Agent
Uses J2EE technology to manage and monitor an eGate 5.0 deployment that may
contain other application servers in addition to the SeeBeyond Integration Server.
Defines management interfaces and services designed for distributed environments,
focusing on providing functionality for managing networks, systems, and applications.
12)What is Message Destination
A general term for a topic or queue. Two or more Projects can share a message
destination that has the same name and is deployed on the same message server. A
single Project may also have a single message destination referenced in multiple
13) What is a OTD
An acronym for Object Type Definition. OTDs contain the data structure and rules that
define an object. An OTD is used in Java Collaboration Definitions for creating data
transformations and interfacing with external systems.
14) how you define a Project in JCAPS
Contains a collection of logical components, configurations, and files that are used to
solve business problems. A Project organizes the files and packages and maintains the
settings that comprise an eGate system in SeeBeyond’s Enterprise Designer.
15)What is a Queue
A JMS queue is a shareable object that conforms to the point-to-point (p2p, or PTP)
messaging domain, where one sender delivers a message to exactly one receiver. When
the SeeBeyond JMS IQ Manager sends a message to a queue, it ensures it is received
once and only once, even though there may be many receivers “listening” to the queue.
This is equivalent to the subscriber pooling in other queue implementations. You can
reference a queue that exists in another Connectivity Map or Project.
16)What is Repository
Stores and manages the setup, component, and configuration information for eGate
Projects. The Repository also provides monitoring services for Projects, which include
version control and impact analysis.
17)What is the use of Schema Runtime Environment
An add-on in eGate 5.0 that provides the upgrade path for e*Gate 4.x users to upgrade
to eGate 5.0. Also known as the SRE.
18) What is Service in JCAPS
Contains the information about executing a set of business rules. These business rules
can be defined in a Java Collaboration Definition, XSLT Collaboration Definition,
Business Process, eTL Definition, or other service. A Service also contains binding
information for connecting to JMS Topics, Queues, eWays, and other services.
19) Define Topic
A JMS topic is a shareable object that conforms to the publish-and-subscribe (pub/sub)
messaging domain, where one publisher broadcasts messages to potentially many
subscribers. When the SeeBeyond JMS IQ Manager publishes a message on a topic, it
ensures that all subscribers receive the message.
20) Define XSLT
An acronym for Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations. A File format used in
eGate to generate Collaboration Definitions.
