By now, you have probably read about the biggest release of Oracle SOA Suite in the last 5 years...Oracle SOA Suite 12c with major enhancements in the areas of Cloud Integration, Mobile Integration and more. This "What's New in SOA Suite 12c" blog focuses on one of the many other new features that developers will be thrilled to experience, the rapid installation feature. Tired of spending an entire afternoon installing Oracle SOA Suite 11g? Then switch to Oracle SOA Suite 12c and the rapid installation for development is completed in less than 30 minutes.
Here is an excerpt from the "What's New in Oracle SOA Suite 12c" White Paper by Oracle's Simone Geib. Download it now to learn about this and many other features:
Crucial first steps in every SOA development cycle are the installation and configuration of a SOA development
environment, including the Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and the
SOA run-time and infrastructure database. For pre-12c versions of Oracle SOA
Suite, these steps were challenging, starting with the download of several components
and a complicated install and configuration process.
With Oracle SOA Suite 12c, this process has been
dramatically simplified with the introduction of the new Quick Start installer. The download consists of a single file that
can be obtained from the Oracle Technology Network (OTN). The user only needs
to answer a few questions, such as defining the location for Oracle Home, and the
installation usually completes in less than 30 minutes as shown in the image to the below.
The Quick Start install provides the foundation for a single
user development environment, which includes all Oracle SOA Suite core
components - Oracle BPEL Process Manager, Oracle Human Workflow, Oracle
Business Rules, Oracle Mediator, Oracle Service Bus, Oracle Technology
Adapters, Oracle Enterprise Scheduler, SOA Spring Component and Enterprise
Manager Fusion Middleware Control. In addition, Oracle JDeveloper is installed
with all SOA IDE extensions and an integrated WebLogic Server.
