Reaching the Tricky Bits

Hidden SOA Suite Downloads!


Ever noticed when you go camping that you have almost finished putting your tent up and then you find that you are missing some crucial piece, like the guy ropes to stop it blowing away.  Well that happened to me today with the SOA Suite downloads.  I had downloaded the 1 disk install and that was great, had everything I needed for installing OC4J, BPEL, ESB and OWSM.  I then went to install BAM and hit a problem.  It didn't seem to be on the downlaod page.  Turns out that likes the guy ropes it is tucked away under the instructions at the bottom of the bag, or to be more exact you need to clck the "see all" button to the right of the Linux and Windows SOA Suite downloads on the SOA Suite download page.


Whilst installing BAM I then started up JDeveloper only to realise it didn't have a JVM.  I didn't have a 1.5 JVM on my machine so I looked at the downlaod I had and realised it was a generic platform download that didn't include a JVM.  I went to the SOA Suite download page and click "all" next to the JDeveloper downlaod and found a version specifically for Windows that included a JDK 1.5.


It's amazing what you find hidden under the instructions!
