Upgrading SOA Suite 11.1.1.2 to 11.1.1.3 SOA Suite with OSB

With the release of Oracle SOA Suite 11.1.1.3 last week (28 April 2010) I thought I would attempt to implement a complete SOA Environment with SOA Suite, BPM and OSB on the WLS infrastructure. One major point of difference with the 11.1.1.3 is that is is released as a point release so you must have 11.1.1.2 installed first, then upgrade to 11.1.1.3.

This post is performing the upgrade on Linux, if upgrading on windows you will need to substitute the directories and files accordingly.

This post assumes that you have SOA Suite 11.1.1.2 installed already.

1. Download 11.1.1.3 software from the following site:

http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/middleware/htdocs/fmw_11_download.html

WLS 11.1.1.3  
RCU 11.1.1.3
SOA Suite 11.1.1.3
OSB 11.1.1.3

Copy files to a staging area. For the purpose of this document the staging area is:

/u01/stage 

2. Shutdown your existing SOA Suite 11.1.1.2 environment

image

3. Execute the WLS 11.1.1.3 install from the stage directory.

wls1033_linux32.bin

4. Choose the existing 11.1.1.2 Middleware Home

image

5. Ignore the security update notification

image

6. Accept the default products to be upgraded.

image

image

7. Upgrade of WebLogic has been completed

image 

8. Upgrade the SOA Suite database schemas using the RCU utility. Unzip the RCU utility into the staging area and run the install

./u01/stage/rcuHome/bin/rcu

image

9. Drop the existing Repository and provide connection details

image

image

9. Install SOA Suite patch set 11.1.1.3. Unzip the SOA Suite patchset and execute the runInstaller with the following command.

./u01/stage/Disk1/runInstaller -jreLoc $MW_HOME/jdk160_18/jre

image

10. Choose the existing 11.1.1.2 middleware home

image

11. Start Install

image

12. Your SOA Suite Install should now be completed.

Now we need to update the database repository. Login to SQLPlus as sysdba and execute the following command.

SELECT version, status FROM schema_version_registry where owner = 'DEV_SOAINFRA';

the result should be similar to this:

VERSION                        STATUS      OWNER
------------------------------ ----------- ------------------------------
11.1.1.2.0                     VALID       DEV_SOAINFRA

As you can see the version if these repositories are still at 11.1.1.2.

13. To upgrade these versions you have 2 options. 1 install via RCU, but this will remove any existing services. The second option is to use the Patch Set Assistant.

From the $MW_HOME directory run the following command

./Oracle_SOA1/bin/psa -dbType Oracle -dbConnectString 'localhost:1521:xe' -dbaUserName sys -schemaUserName DEV_SOAINFRA

14. Install OSB. For the OSB install I did not install the IDE, or the Examples.

run the runInstaller from the command line, unzip the OSB download to the stage area.

./u01/stage/osb/Disk1/runInstaller -jreLoc $MW_HOME/jdk160_18/jre

image

15. Choose Custom Install NOT to install the IDE (Eclipse) or Examples.

image

16. Unselect the, Examples and IDE checkboxes.

image

17. Accept the defaults and start installing.

image

18. Once the install has been completed configure the domain by running the Configuration Wizard.

$MW_HOME/oracle_common/common/bin/config.sh

You can create a new domain. In this document I will extend the soa_domain.

image

image

19. Select the following from the check list. I have selected the BPM Suite, this is unrelated to OSB but wanted it for my development purposes. To use this functionality additional license are required.

image

20. Configure the database connectivity.

image

21. Configure the database connectivity for the OSB schema.

image

22. Accept the defaults if installing on standard machine, if you require a cluster or advanced configuration then choose the option for you.

image

23. Upgrade is complete and OSB has been installed. Now you can start your environment.

Comments:

Hi,

While running RCU, do we need to create first and drop or if you pick create it it asks you to drop existing schema.

Thanks,
Manish

I think I need to reword some of this post. This post is really about installing 11.1.1.3 from scratch as it was a patch. If you drop the repository you will lose all history.

If you are upgrading and want to keep history etc, you don't run RCU, you run the upgrade scripts. This is shown in step 12 and 13.

For upgrading and keeping history follow the other post on my blog.
