Sun Java CAPS to Oracle SOA Suite Migrations

After the Sun acquisition, largely welcomed by customers and industry alike, Oracle expressed a strong commitment to support Java CAPS customers in both their current investment as well as in delivering options to facilitate their migration to Oracle Fusion Middleware  (and more specifically Oracle SOA Suite).

Oracle is committed to preserve the investment of Java CAPS customers. This commitment has been demonstrated through the extension of most support timelines previously announced by Sun as well as the addition of Indefinite Sustaining Support options - see the
Oracle Lifetime Support Policy for Oracle Fusion Middleware brochure for exact dates.

For customers ready to migrate to SOA Suite, Oracle offers a range of benefits, commercial ones as well as technical ones, with the goal to minimize costs and risks.

First, Oracle offers a license migration program that includes license credits and no extra support cost for legacy software during the migration phase, for an extensive period of time (please contact your Oracle sales representative for the exact details of the license migration program and support benefits). It is also important to note that key Java CAPS libraries and components are now included in the Oracle SOA Suite license. This was done to ensure that you can run migrated artifacts that have a dependency on these libraries without having to keep your full Java CAPS licenses.

Secondly, Oracle offers expertise through Oracle Consulting Services. Our OCS team has expertise in both Java CAPS and SOA Suite and has helped several Java CAPS customers to take advantage of the robust, scalable, feature-rich and cost-effective SOA Suite while retaining their, often large investment, existing code already running in Java CAPS. OCS offers "SOA migration assessment and planning services" that focus on the critical planning and architectural aspects required to ensure a successful migration. Understanding that customers might already have their own preferred system integrator, Oracle has also been working with members of the Oracle Partner Network (over 50 workshops delivered around the world as to date) to help them package their expertise as a commercial offering.

Finally, Oracle has developed migration tools and certified interoperability across Fusion Middleware and Java CAPS.  Tooling has been developed to migrate a host of Java CAPS artifacts (such as JCDs, OTDs and BPEL) to SOA Suite across  various versions of the products such Java CAPS 6.x,  JBI-based projects, Java CAPS 5.1.x , BPEL 1.x/2.0,  ICAN 5.0 JCDs and so on. Oracle has also certified the interoperability of Java CAPS and SOA Suite across JMS and Web Services. This interoperability approach is key to ensure a seamless co-existence of the two generations of products during migration. Please watch this blog for a more detailed post on technical capabilities of the migration tools.

Whilst customers have found that other vendors are on a voyage of discovery or on a mission to sell services under the guise of product, they see Oracle's commitment to customer satisfaction bearing real fruit. They have been turning to Oracle, who is now owner of both Java CAPS and Oracle SOA Suite, as the only company with sufficient depth of knowledge and experience in both the source and target platforms as well as the only one able to offer the licensing and support benefits highlighted above. Earlier this year, during Oracle Open World, customers and partners have come forward and started sharing their
migration success stories.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are currently using any Sun/SeeBeyond integration products and looking at modernizing - we can help!

Thanks for your article regarding JCAPS migration to Oracle SOA.

Do you know where I can find JCAPS migration tool software?
I couldn't see it in Oracle SOA product.

Can you please direct me to an official public facing document that explains the licensing rules for JCaps for DR? The JCaps licensing was purchased directly from SUN so if you have a document that explains how SUN used to license the DR that should help.

Thank you!
