Finally Oracle SOA Suite 12cR1 ( is out (http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/pressrelease/soa-suite-12c-062614).Having implemented all versions of SOA Suite (, I am particularly more exited about this new release as I was when its predecessors were launched. And this is because unlike the previous releases, these versions is releases in the middle of major trends such as cloud computing, mobile integration, Internet of Thins, Machine to Machine, are starting to become main-stream and I see SOA Suite 12c as a fundamental building block to supporting all of these new trends!
Listing below some of the new features of Oracle SOA 12c that I am more exited about:

  • Enhanced cloud integration with cloud adapters
  • Improved mobile & IoT support with REST/JSON adapters
  • Seamless OEP integration (very useful for EDA’s or Big Data integration support)
  • Improved user experience and productivity by:
    • Finally having OSB IDE now fully supported by JDeveloper
    • New “template” feature which allows developer to create blueprints of pre-built SOA/OSB composites/services
    • “Composite like” development of OSB services
    • Completely new ADF based OSB console
  • Improved support for large/small documents transfer by incorporating the Oracle Managed File Transfers
  • Backward compatibility with AIA FP with the use of SOA Core Extensions (http://docs.oracle.com/middleware/1213/core/INSOA/planning.htm#INSOA498)
  • As per my understanding, OER harvester for SOA 12c assets will be available as part of the release of OER 12c (12.1.3) which will come out soon

Is about the last point two points  (AIA/OER) that I want to talk a bit more, specially because both of them are governance related features.
Although 12c introduces many features which will make it easier to govern a SOA project, if you are using AIA or OER in 11g or if you are about to start a 11g project, you must take note of the following:
