SOA Suite 12c Quick Start

Lets get started!

In the below tutorial, we will show you just how easy it is to get a "basic" SOA Suite 12c environment up, running and ready for development to commence!

Oracle announced last month, the release of Oracle SOA Suite 12c which marks a major step forward in supporting “industrial” SOA, and offer the industry’s most highly integrated middleware platform. With the rapid adoption of Cloud, Mobile and Internet of Things, the need for a robust, proven and standards based SOA platform has become central to an organisations ability to deliver on these key initiatives.

SOA Suite 12c offers a significantly improved development experience. One such example of this is the "quick start" installer which contains everything required to get started developing for SOA Suite 12c in under 30 minutes!

So what is in included in the "Quick Start" installer?

  • WebLogic Application Server
  • Coherence  In-Memory Grid
  • SOA Suite including:
    • Oracle BPEL
    • Oracle Mediator
    • Oracle Human Workflow
    • Oracle Service Bus
    • Oracle Rules
    • Technology Adapters
  • Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control
  • Lightweight In-Memory Database
  • ...and of course, JDeveloper IDE
    • with all of the mandatory plugins pre-installed!

Please Note: B2B, Healthcare & Oracle Event Processing are separate downloadable add-ons to SOA Suite.

What about Enterprise Deployment?

It is important to note that the SOA Suite 12c "quick start" installer will not give you a production ready environment. It is merely designed to meet the development or evaluation use cases.

When it comes to Enterprise Deployment of SOA Suite 12c, there are a number of important steps to take and the SOA Suite 12c Enterprise Deployment Guide (EDG) is the best place to start!

The EDG can be a daunting guide at first with some 250+ pages but there is no need to be afraid! In a series of posts Rubicon Red will guide you in your journey to SOA Suite 12c production. We'll show you how to ensure reliable, repeatable and consistent environment delivery that meets the requirements outlined in the EDG. With the Rubicon Red MyST declarative-based provision tool, you'll see how a highly-available, secure and robust environment can be realised without the pain, sorrow and despair... With SOA Suite 12c and MyST, the Journey is the Reward.
