BPM & SOA Application missing in JDeveloper 12c gallery by Martien van den Akker

A few weeks ago I did a BPM12c Quickstart Installation under Oracle Linux 6. Everything went smoothly, as described in the install guide as well as on many blogs already.
But I found that most of those blogs did an installation under Windows, where I did it under Oracle Linux in Virtualbox.
You would think (as I did) that it shouldn't matter. However, it turns out that in JDeveloper I was missing the 'BPM Application' amongst others in the JDeveloper New Gallery. Very inconvenient. I couldn't find any hints on the big internet. My friend Google wasn't very helpful in this.
But I wouldn't write this blog if I did not solve it. It turns out that with an update I got it solved.
It turns out that I lacked the 'Spring & Oracle Weblogic SCA' extension. Using the Help->Update functionality I downloaded and installed that and after restarting JDeveloper my 'New Gallery' was properly filled.
For those not so familiar with the JDeveloper update mechanism, here a step by step guide:

    Hi Jürgen,

    This does not work for 12.2.1 and I could not figure out a way for 12.2.1. All, I have now is the quick install option for BPM. Any pointer would be highly helpful.
