VirtualBox image SOA Suite & BPM Suite 11.1.1.6.0 & Your feedback?

The integration PM team is very pleased to announce the release of a new version of our pre-configured SOA/BPM VirtualBox image for testing and evaluation. This VirtualBox appliance contains a fully configured, ready-to-use SOA/BPM/Webcenter 11.1.1.6.0 installation.

All you need is to install Oracle VM VirtualBox on your desktop/laptop and import the SOA/BPM appliance and you are ready to try out SOA Suite and BPM Suite -- no installation and configuration required!
The following software is installed in this VritualBox image:

  • Oracle Enterprise Linux (64-bit) EL 5 Update 5
  • Oracle XE Database 11.2.0
  • Oracle SOA Suite 11.1.1.6.0 (includes Service Bus)
  • Oracle BPM Suite 11.1.1.6.0
  • Oracle Webcenter Content (Enterprise Content Management) 11.1.1.6.0
  • Oracle Webcenter Suite 11.1.1.6.0
  • Oracle JDeveloper 11.1.1.6.0
  • JRockit R28.2.0-79-146777-1.6.0_29s
  • Sun Java SDK 1.6.0_29-b11

If you want to try it out, please go to the Pre-built Virtual Machine for SOA Suite and BPM Suite 11g OTN page for detailed instructions on downloading and importing the VirtualBox image.

Jon Petter Hjulstad published the first impression at his blog clip_image001 Twitter & clip_image002 LinkedIn clip_image001

We have been waiting for the new VirtualBox Image for a long time, and finally it is here. The appliance has improved in many ways since last release, so it has been worth waiting for. Both the appliance itself and the documentation is excellent. It is evident that Oracle has listened to feedback on the previous release, and I think the developer VMs are useful. Especially the adoption of new patchsets and versions (ex when 12c will be available) will gain a lot from quick getting hands-on experiences. This VirtualBox appliance is a multipurpose image which can be used in different domain configurations. The image has a number of pre-configured domains that you can use depending on your need. The image can be set up so that it requires use of as few resources as possible, you can for instance easily disable B2B if you do not need it, or you can shut down the desktop console and save 600MB. It is important to say that this image is not for production purposes. Read the full article

Value of SOA Specialization interview with Jag Puttanna, CEO of XTRON – part IV

”We are excited to announce the Oracle partner network recognition. This program gives a unique advantage to position XTRON in the North American region. We have a strategic focus on oracle fusion middleware including Oracle SOA Suite. Getting this SOA specialization re-assures customers that XTRON is geared up and committed to deliver. This would also enable our customers to confidently work with a great company and people who are certified, specialized and committed for great quality.” said Jag Puttanna, CEO of XTRON.

Why did XTRON decide to become SOA specialized?image

SOA specialization gives a unique positioning to differentiate our services among the Oracle partners. XTRON is among the first 13 partners in North America to achieve SOA specialization.

Can you describe the marketing activities with Oracle?
We have used various marketing kits for lead generation activities. We saved significant time and efforts to launch new campaigns.

How did you team with Oracle around the sales activities?
Sales alignment is the ultimate key behind our success. Our business development team is aligned with regional channel and sales managers. We also had our presence at various events like Special Interest User Group (SIG) etc.

Oracle competency portal has been extremely useful to train our consultants. Prerecorded webinars and guided learning path has been the key behind implementation exams. Our consultants also participated at various OTN developer day and live virtual classes.

What are the next steps for XTRON?
We are looking forward to develop competency in newer offerings like CEP, Webcenter and Application Grid. Exalogic is another exiting area to begin and explore. We would continue to invest and strengthen our relation with Oracle.
