SOA Suite Create, configure and tune a SOA/OSB Domain


This post focuses on the creation, configuration and tuning of an initial SOA Suite Domain.

The WebLogic Server is a necessary requirement, and must already be installed. For instruction how to install the WebLogic Server please refer to my previous post:  WebLogic Server Installation on the Linux OS

The following tasks will be implemented:

  • Preparing the Operating System for the installation of the WebLogic Server, Installation JDK 1.8 and the WebLogic Server WebLogic Server Installation on the Linux OS
  • Creating of database schemas
  • Creating a SOA Suite Domain
  • Post-Installation Tasks:
    • Configuring of components
    • Creating of Start & Stop scripts for the automatic start/stop of components
  • SOA Suite Domain Tuning and Troubleshooting

The SOA/OSB Domain will be installed without BAM (different Domain) because of:

–    Oracle Best Practices and our experience

–    In order to stabilize the system (BAM is unstable at the moment)

The Domain will be created on two servers (OS OEL 6.7):


We will configure four clusters:

  • OWSM Cluster (Oracle Web Services Management)
  • ESS Cluster (Enterprise Scheduler Services)
  • SOA Cluster
  • OSB Cluster (Oracle Service Bus)

Installation SOA / OSB

Note: All tasks described in this chapter must be running on both servers: host01 and host02

How to customize Java Virtual Machine Settings in Oracle WebLogic Server 12 on OS Linux / UNIX

In order to achieve the best performance of the application or to avoid performance bottlenecks (and “OutOfMemory” problems) you need to tune your Java Virtual Machine. After you install the WebLogic Server and create a Domain (WebLogic or SOA or Forms or OBIEE etc.) you may set some properties such as Java “Heap size”, tune Java “Garbage Collection” and WebLogic Server start options.

Tune JVM settings

You can set the Variable USER_MEM_ARGS for the Admin Server and each Managed Server to tune the JVM Parameters. For Example:

USER_MEM_ARGS="-Xms1g -Xmx3g -XX:+UseParNewGC -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -XX:NewSize=1g"

Servicebus 12c: Using configuration files for customizing service deployments

My colleague @sbernhardt wrote very nice article about Servicebus 12c: Using configuration files for customizing service deployments

The Cattle Crew Blog


In my last projects I faced different challenges in the area of how to manage environment-specific artefact configurations that need to be adjusted during rollout of a particular service component. As a result from that, I decided to write down my experiences and solution approaches regarding the corresponding topics. This article is the starting point for a short blog series dealing with different challenges in this area, where the following topics will be covered:

  • General: Using configuration files for customizing service deployments
  • Adjust environment-specific configurations at deployment time
  • Evaluating environment-specific configurations at runtime
  • Security: Approaches for credentials management

Configuration files in Servicebus

During its lifecycle a specific service component needs to pass different quality gates to ensure quality, correctness and stability before it will be approved for production rollout. For that reason deployments to different environments have to be done. This usually means changes in configurations like service endpoints or timeout parameters, which must be possible without changing a components implementation and rebuilding the component. In Oracle Servicebus…

Importing SOA VM to Amazon Cloud – Part 1

Very nice article from Grzegorz about importing the SOA Suite VM into Amazon Cloud – Part 1

The Big Bang Tech


Aldough Oracle is pushing it’s own cloud solutions agresivly there are still other cloud providers in the market that can be used to build similar functionality. Migration of existing infrastructure to the comercial cloud is a scenario worth considering. Today I will show how to use Amazon Cloud Services (AWS) to move an existing SOA suite VM to Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). For this porpuose I will use a Oracle Pre-built Virtual Machine for SOA Suite 12.2.1 and import it to AWS. After the import I will create a running instance that can be used further deployment and development of integration solutions.

Changing listening address in Weblogic 12.2.1 with OWSM

Blog entry from my Colleague Grzegorz about the changing the listening address in WLS with OWSM

The Big Bang Tech

Changing the listening port and address may be more complicated than just updating the settings in WebLogic Administration Console. The reason for this is the fact that Cross-Component Wiring for Auto-Discovery of Policy Manager is used.

„Wiring is simply a piece of configuration in one component that points to another component, such as a URL that points to the admin interface of a component. With cross-component wiring:

  • Service providers publish their endpoints to a Service Table. These endpoints can be published automatically, such as when you create or extend a domain using the Configuration Wizard, or can be published manually by the administrator.
  • Clients contain configuration that points to the service (for example, it has the service URL). The client is „bound“ to the service by updating this configuration with the service information that was published to the Service Table. Binding is performed automatically when creating or extending a domain…

SOA Suite auf einer ODA? Mit O-Box – ein Kinderspiel


Eine Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) ist als geeignete Plattform für den Betrieb von Oracle Datenbanken bekannt. Die Oracle RAC oder One Node RAC Datenbanken lassen sich sehr schnell und unkompliziert auf einer ODA Maschine installieren und betreiben.

Seit der Version 2.6 ist es möglich, auch einen WebLogic Server auf ODA zu betreiben, und das neben der Datenbank. Dafür muss die ODA mit einem Image bespielt werden, das Virtualisierung unterstützt.
