SOA Suite 11g Releases

image A few years ago Mars renamed one of the most popular chocolate bars in England from Marathon to Snickers.  Even today there are still some people confused by the name change and refer to them as marathons.

Well last week we released SOA Suite 11.1.1.3 and BPM Suite 11.1.1.3 as well as OSB 11.1.1.3.  Seems that some people are a little confused by the naming and how to install these new versions, probably the same Brits who call Snickers a Marathon :-).  Seems that calling all the revisions 11g Release 1 has caused confusion.  To help these people I have created a little diagram to show how you can get the latest version onto your machine.  The dotted lines indicate dependencies.

Note that SOA Suite 11.1.1.3 and BPM 11.1.1.3 are provided as a patch that is applied to SOA Suite 11.1.1.2.  For a new install there is no need to run the 11.1.1.2 RCU, you can run the 11.1.1.3 RCU directly.

SOA_Suite_11g

All SOA & BPM Suite 11g installations are built on a WebLogic Server base.  The WebLogic 11g Release 1 version is 10.3 with an additional number indicating the revision.  Similarly the 11g Release 1 SOA Suite, Service Bus and BPM Suite have a version 11.1.1 with an additional number indicating the revision.  The final revision number should match the final revision in the WebLogic Server version.  The products are also sometimes identified by a Patch Set number, indicating whether this is the 11gR1 product with the first or second patch set.  The table below show the different revisions with their alias.

Product Version Base WebLogic Alias
SOA Suite 11gR1 11.1.1.1 10.3.1 Release 1 or R1
SOA Suite 11gR1 11.1.1.2 10.3.2 Patch Set 1 or PS1
SOA Suite 11gR1 11.1.1.3 10.3.3 Patch Set 2 or PS2
BPM Suite 11gR1 11.1.1.3 10.3.3 Release 1 or R1
OSB 11gR1 11.1.1.3 10.3.3 Release 1 or R1

Hope this helps some people, if you find it useful you could always send me a Marathon bar, sorry Snickers!
