Oracle recently released a new version of the Oracle SOA Suite 12c.
This release is built around 4 themes; Industrial SOA, Developer
Productivity, Mobile and Cloud. The theme of developer productivity is
the topic for this multi-series blog. Each blog in this series will
describe one or more of these new and interesting changes. When
deciding which feature to cover first, it made sense to start with the
first feature that would affect developers starting to use 12c, and that
is the new one-click install. In reality, there are several clicks, but
new for this release, all of the files required for a developer install
comes from a single installation file.
When installing prior
versions of the Oracle SOA Suite, several potentially error prone steps
where required in order to set up a development environment. For
example, the Oracle Database and WebLogic server had to be installed
before you started installing the SOA runtime and created the database
schemas. Besides making sure you had compatible versions, they had to be
set up correctly for all of the parts to work correctly.
blog post, the installation was performed on Windows 7. Steps for
Linux install and other platforms can be found on the JDeveloper
download web page referenced in the URL below:
installation will be done in two parts, the first is to install the
software onto your computer. The second part is to start JDeveloper and
the integrated Weblogic Server and Service Bus and configure the domain.
Part 1 – JDeveloper Studio Installation
the Windows 64-bit Install for Oracle JDeveloper 12c Studio Edition
from the download page referenced above. Downloading the Generic
Installer jar file is smaller and can be used on other operating
systems, but will need additional features added to complete the
installation. The Windows Installer contains the required JDK for
Included in this install file are the necessary
components for development with the core SOA Suite including BPEL,
rules engine, human work flow, adapters and the Mediator. Also new to
the 12c release, the installer includes the service bus. Note that this
installer doesn’t include Oracle BPM but is available as separate
installation. Another feature you might require which is not part of
the installation file is BAM since BAM requires an Oracle Database.
the install file has been download, browse to the download location in
Windows Explorer and right click on the file, select “Run as administrator”
to run the installer. This is an important step and if this file is
run without doing this an error will occur during the installation.
There are several forum post with people who have tried this and ran
into this error. Read the complete article here.
