SOA Suite Installation | Print |  E-mail
Written by Anil Passi

I hope you have read the article on VMWare installation, if not you may decide to read VMWare Installation
Our next step after building the VM is to install the SOA Suite, i.e. the BPEL Process Manager Bundle.

Note:- You may decide to to skip VM installation alltogether. The reason I installed all Oracle Products on a VM is to keep my main PC clean from heavy duty Oracle stuff.

To download the BPEL Process Manager [SOA Suite],
follow the link http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/tech/webservices/index.html
Alternately follow the above link[ I am not installing the Companion CDs as yet].

First install the SOA Suite as shown below.
I have listed the installation steps. The install was very straightforward, and does not really need a supporting article.

Salient feature of this install are:-
**This will install the BPEL Server, which is equivalent to the Workflow Engine[just in case you wish to make comparison].
**SOA Suite comes bundled with a Oracle Lite database, which should sufffice for your tutorials etc.
**SOA Suite will not have jDeveloper. jDeveloper can either be installed separately, or as a part of Companion CD.

What is the Difference between BPEL Server and jDeveloper?
Both are needed for you to practice BPEL design/development. jDeveloper will be used to make Service Orchestration diagrams.

Unzip the SOA Suite to c:\bpel and run the install.
For this I doubleclicked on C:\bpel\soa_windows_x86_101310_disk1\setup.exe

Password lets say xx123xx123

The installation of Oracle Application Server 10g was successful.
These instructions are located in C:\product\\OracleAS_1\install\readme.txt for your future reference.

You can view the status of the server with the following command:
C:\product\\OracleAS_1\opmn\bin\opmnctl status
