PART 2 – Starting SOA Suite and Creating a First SOA Composite in JDeveloper 11g Version 11.1
This continues Part 1 which can be found here.
After installation we need to take one steps before starting the servers:
- Configure a boot.properties file in the soa_domain root directory:

- an AdminServer (running WebLogic Console and Grid Control Console)
- a ManagedServer soa_server1
At runtime, only the ManagedServer is required.
Now we can start the servers with
Test if you can access the WebLogic console at http://<host>:7001/console
After completion, start the Managed Server:
Check if you can access the soa infra test page at :8001/soa-infra">http://<host>:8001/soa-infra
Now you can also login to Grid Control at :7001/em">http://<host>:7001/em
Notice the Linux System Resources: Altogether we use only 2,5 GB of RAM (including Linux…!)
Next install and run JDeveloper 11.1 (I used the generic JAR installer) and create an Application Server Connection:
From the About Menu, Check for Updates and install the SOA Composite Editor (this is NOT included in the default installation!):
Now you are ready to create your first application:
- New Application
- New Project, for example a SOA Composite with a BPEL process:
With Project –> right click you can Deploy the composite to the SOA server:
