SOA Suite 11g (11.1.1.3): Creating a single server domain with SOA Suite and Oracle Service Bus functionality

One of the major benefits of the latest version of the Oracle SOA products, SOA Suite 11gR1 PS2 (11.1.1.3) and Oracle Service Bus 11gR1 (11.1.1.3), is that both products depend on the same version of WebLogic Server 11g (10.3.3) and so can be installed in the same domain. If you are a developer building artifacts for both but with a laptop/desktop with limited resources then this is particularly useful, as you can install a single server domain (by default you get a domain with an admin server and multiple managed servers) which incorporates both sets of functionality. The viewlet below shows you how to go about creating such a single server domain, using the configuration wizard. Just click the Play button from the viewlet menu to start it.

Note: As you have added all this functionality into a single server, it will take a few minutes to start up.

As this is my first foray into the world of viewlets I’d be interested in your opinion as to whether you have found this useful and any tips/techniques for improving any future viewlets I may create.

Chris, I just got done with 11.1.1.3 installation, but sadly when creating new domain it fails to create soa_server1 and bam_server1 under the domain. By fails i mean, there is no error at all and at the end of the wizard the domain folder contains only AdminServer folder and soa_server1,bam_server1 are missing. I wonder if I am missing anything in the installation. Any insight/help is appreciated. synd

Hi Synd, It sounds like this has worked correctly. What the viewlet describes is how to create a single server domain which fulfils the role of Admin Server, SOA Server and BAM Server. If you start up the Admin Server then you should see that it has the capabilities of both a SOA and BAM server. Hope that helps. Chris

Chris, Do you have any tips if the weblogic server does not startup? The command window immeadiately blanks out. I first tried installing OSB and that worked fine until I extended the domain to include SOA Suite 11.1.1.3. After a complete uninstall, I tired you approach and the behaviour is the same, command window appears for a second and disappeared. Nothing in the logs to indicate what this issue is. My weblogic, OSB, and SOA Suite are the latest versions. Thanks.

Hi Ernie, Thanks for the comment. Your problem sounds very much like something I wrote about in my previous blog post: http://blogs.oracle.com/christomkins/2010/05/soa_suite_11g_unable_to_start.html Try the fix described here and see if you make any progress. Thanks, Chris
