Intro to Oracle SOA Suite for GFESB Users

So, Oracle we are then.

If you are interested in trying out the Oracle SOA Suite from the perspective of someone who is familiar with GlassFish ESB, then attached are several documents which will get you started....

The idea is to create & run your first Oracle SOA Suite project using a familiar GFESB scenario, in fact this is based on the GlassFish ESB HA project that formed part of the recently released document....

1. Create an EJB Webservice

2. Create a BPEL process to call this WebService

3. Use an Oracle Adapter - here we use the database adapter.

4. Add some correlation to the BPEL project. 

 Enjoy !

 PS. you'll need to have Oracle SOA Suite installed beforehand, there are plenty of documents out there on the web that explain how to do this fully.

Hi Chris,
I'm not advocating moving from GFESB/JCAPS to Oracle SOA Suite now or tomorrow, just giving an idea of how Oracle SOA Suite can be used to create the same projects.
I'm as unclear on the specifics of the roadmap as you are, however, Oracle have two middleware products now, Oracle SOA Suite and GFESB, I think its useful to understand them both.

Hi Mark,

Could you indicate what packages (and versions) are needed to follow your instructions?
You say that you need SOA Suite but I can see WebLogic Server and JDeveloper as well at least.
I am trying to follow the dependencies and getting lost with all the available options.

Hi Chris,

You'll need.....

Download & install Oracle 11g database (not XE, although this may work!) - 1.9GB
Download & install Oracle Repository Creation Utility - 282MB
Download & install Oracle Weblogic 11g - 756MB ....note that even though its 11g the version number is 10.3.1.x
Download & install Oracle SOA suite 11g - 1.5GB
Download & install JDeveloper Studio - 912MB
Update JDeveloper for the SOA Tools add-ons - 218MB

Unfortunately not a one-click install process !

Hi Mark,

thanks for the post.

Regarding the WS part, this page gives an overview how you can create a WS with JDeveloper starting from different angles:
http://www.oracle.com/technology/obe/obe11jdev/bulldog/webservices/ws.html

Regarding the BPEL part, after I added the missing SOA Tools add-ons, I could not longer use the "Test WebService" feature:
"The Server Instance cannot be started because the Integrated Weblogic domain was not built successfully." :(

Seems that my JDeveloper after the update for SOA Tools refuses to start WLS...

kind regards,

Kris
