In our last post, we have described about the SOA. this post can be understood from the title. So we want to install the Oracle SOA Suite 11g but are too lazy busy to read the documentation, even the “Quick Installation Guide for Oracle SOA Suite”?.
I will left the installation to the reader of this blog since you will get many help from the internet to install the SOA for Linux or Windows. But here are the components that you need for the installation. If you still find it difficult, please comment it, we can give you the detail post
- Oracle DB – The SOA Suite requires a database for persistence. While you can go for the full Enterprise version, the Express edition is a fine choice for a development environment.
- Weblogic Server – This will provide the JEE environment (as well as the JMS provider) required to run the SOA Suite (a JEE application).
- Repository Creation utility – This will lay the database schemas that the SOA Suite uses for various persistence tasks (audit trails, etc,)
- SOA Suite – This is the actual JEE application that contains the SOA engines and that will be deployed on WebLogic.
- Jdeveloper and SOA Extension – This is the IDE to design and develop SOA.
There is an alternative way for the development. We can install Oracle SOA VM for the development.
The virtual box image has the following things
- Oracle Enterprise Linux (64-bit) EL 5 Update 5
- Oracle XE Database 11.2.0
- Oracle SOA Suite 220.127.116.11.0 (includes Service Bus)
- Oracle BPM Suite 18.104.22.168.0
- Oracle Webcenter Content (Enterprise Content Management) 22.214.171.124.0
- Oracle Webcenter Suite 126.96.36.199.0
- Oracle JDeveloper 188.8.131.52.0
- JRockit R28.2.0-79-146777-1.6.0_29s
- Sun Java SDK 1.6.0_29-b11
For our tutorial, we are using Oracle VM. We are running the above image in Ubuntu Linux. If you want to learn how to install java in ubuntu
In our next post, we will see how to use these components. I will come up with complete topics what we are planning to cover in the next post.
