Learn how to migrate and modernize stateless applications and run them in a Kubernetes cluster.

"Interoperability" and "Integration" are two words which are often used interchangeably. However, in systems architecture they have different meanings. "Interoperability" means that products will talk to each other, usually over the network or through shared understanding of a file format. "Integration" means something closer.

In the case of Oracle Entitlements Server (OES), this distinction is important. In Oracle's OES Product White Paper, a number of Gateways are listed as being able to use OES to manage authorization for Web Services. i.e. "interoperability". But only two are mentioned as being able to have OES directly embedded into the Gateway :

"To reduce latency, OES can be directly embedded into XML Gateways such as Oracle Enterprise Gateway and Vordel."

This direct embedding of OES into the Gateway is true integration. It reduces latency for customers, which is vital in environments such as financial transaction processing and telecoms. To see how this works in practice, check out the video below which shows how the enforcement of OES authorization policies is directly embedded into the Vordel Gateway:
