Installing Oracle SOA-BPM Release 11gR1 ( (PS6), Oracle Service Bus (OSB) 11gR1 ( and JDeveloper 11g ( on Windows 7 64 bit

Installing Oracle SOA-BPM Release 11gR1 ( (PS6), Oracle Service Bus (OSB) 11gR1 ( and JDeveloper 11g ( on Windows 7 64 bit

This blog describes how to install SOA-BPM Suite (including Oracle Service Bus) from scratch on Windows 7 64bit machine.

Step1: Downloading Required Software.

Go to Oracle SOA suite download page here.
Under Oracle SOA Suite 11g Installations, select release and then Generic 64-bit JVM.

JDK 64 bits from Sun  jdk-6u27-windows-x64.exe
Database  - Oracle XE Universal -
Oracle WebLogic Server 10.3.6 - wls1036_generic.jar
Repository Creation Utility -    
SOA Suite (2 parts)
Oracle Service Bus
OEPE Windows All-In-One (x86 64-bit)
JDeveloper Generic (jar)  jdevstudio11117install.jar
JDeveloper extension for SOA - download here

Create c:\stageFMW to hold the download files used for installation 

Step2: Installing the JDK.

JDK, SOA Suite, OEPE and OSB will be installing to the middleware home (C:\Middleware\ SOASuite11gR1PS6). If you use a different middleware home then adjust accordingly.
Provide folder name as C:\Middleware\ SOASuite11gR1PS6\JDK160_27 as shown below and install the JDK 64 bit
Click Ok.

Click Next and finish

Step 3: Installing Database:

Run file OracleXEUniv.exe and install the XE database. You may refer the Oracle XE installation guide.
After installing XE, run below commands to meet the requirements of SOA 11g installation –

connect sys/password as sysdba;
alter system set processes=500 scope=spfile;
shutdown immediate;

Start database.

If you are using Oracle XE as your database, you need to set the RCU_JDBC_TRIM_BLOCKS environment variable to TRUE prior to running RCU.

Step 4: Install database schema using RCU

Run the Repository Creation Utility (RCU) to create the database schemas:

Click Next

Enter the database information.

Ignore any warning messages during installation.
Select the component SOA and BPM Infrastructure. Dependent schemas are selected automatically.  

Select the radio button to Use the same password for all schemas. Enter a schema password.

Click Create to create the tables.

On “Completion Summary” page you should see success status for all the components you chosen.

Step 5: Install WebLogic 10.3.6 Server 64 bits on windows

In a command window enter
Cd C:\stageFMW\Weblogic
java -D64 -Xmx1024m -jar wls1036_generic.jar

Click Next

Select Create a new Middleware Home and enter C:\Middleware\SOASuite11gR1PS6. If you use a different middleware home then adjust accordingly.

Deselect the checkbox to receive security updates and Click Next.

(If you are behind firewall or using using proxy to connect internet then wizard may not show next window immediately. Deselect multiple times till you receive the below window.)
Select the check box as shown below to disable internet access.

 Select Typical installation and Click Next.

 As we downloaded the generic version of Weblogic, Select the installed JDK (C:\Middleware\SOASuite11gR1PS6\jdk160_27). 

Review the directories and Click Next.

 You will see the installation summary. Click next.

 Uncheck ‘Run Quickstart’ and Click Done when the installation completes.

Step6: Install SOA Suite – Base Components

In a command window enter (-jreLoc JDK installation location)
cd C:\stageFMW\SOA\Disk1
setup.exe -jreLoc C:\Middleware\SOASuite11gR1PS6\jdk160_27

(-jreLoc point to the JDK installation location)

Click Next.

Skip software updates and click Next.

Click Next. After the prerequisite check.

On the Specify Installation Location screen, select the 
Middleware home: C:\Middleware\SOASuite11gR1PS6
 Accept the default Oracle home: Oracle_SOA1

Click Next

Accept the default on the Application Server page and click Next
Review summary
Click Install 

Wait for the install to complete – takes a few minutes.

When install reaches 100%, click Next

Click Finish

Step 7: install OEPE

Unzip the to the folder C:\Middleware\SOASuite11gR1PS6\oepe11118

Step 8: Service Bus installation

In a command window enter 
cd c:\stageFMW\OSB\Disk1 
setup.exe -jreLoc C:\Middleware\SOASuite11gR1PS6\jdk160_27

Click Next

Select “Skip Software Updates” and click Next 

On the Specify Installation Location screen, select the Middleware home: 
Accept the default Oracle home: Oracle_OSB1 

For the installation type, select Typical and press Next.

Click Next. After the prerequisite check.

Select the OEPE location C:\Middleware\SOASuite11gR1PS6\oepe11118. Click Next and Install

Once the installation process has finished, press the Next button

The installation is now complete. Press the Finish button to exit the installer.

Step 9: Create a SOA Developer Domain

In a command window enter
Cd C:\Middleware\SOASuite11gR1PS6\wlserver_10.3\common\bin

When the configuration wizard welcome screen comes up, select Create a new WebLogic 
domain, click Next   Select “Generate a domain….“ and select 
a) Oracle SOA Suite for developers – [Oracle_SOA1]: This automatically selects 
Oracle WSM Policy Manager – [oracle_common] 
b) Oracle Enterprise Manager – [oracle_common] 

Optional (dependant on the components you want to use): 
c) Oracle Service Bus for developers – [Oracle_OSB1]: This automatically selects 
WebLogic Advanced Web Services for JAX-RPC Extension – [wlserver_10.3] 
d) Oracle Business Activity Monitoring – [Oracle_SOA1] 
e) Oracle BPM Suite for developers – [Oracle_SOA1] 
f) Oracle JRF WebServices Asynchronous services – [oracle_common]

Click Next 

Enter the domain name, e.g. soaosbps6devdomain and choose a location of your choice. Click Next

 Enter user name weblogic and a password welcome1.

Click Next

On the Configure JDBC Component Schema screen, you select the components that you want to change, and then enter the property value for those components. 
First, select all of the components and enter password in the Schema Password field. 
Or, if you used a different password when you created the schema with RCU, enter that password.  With all of the check boxes still selected, enter the Service, Host, and Port values

The data source connections are all tested.
If all are successful, click Next, otherwise click Previous and correct any errors.

Click Next

Click Next

Uncheck the check box (start the admin server) and Click Done.

Step 10: Installing JDeveloper and JDev SOA Extension

In a command window enter 
cd c:\stageFMW\JDev 
java -D64 -Xmx1024m -jar jdevstudio11117install.jar

Click Next

Use existing middleware Home C:\Middleware\SOASuite11gR1PS6

Error window will be displayed as shown below.

So select a new Middleware Home directory and provide Middleware Home Directory as  C:\Middleware\SOASuite11gR1PS6\JDev11gR1PS6   to proceed JDeveloper installation.

Choose Install Type: Complete, click Next

Select the installed JDK (C:\Middleware\SOASuite11gR1PS6\jdk160_27). Click Next

Confirm Product Installation Directories. Click Next

Click Next

Review Installation Summary. Click Next.

Wait for the installation to complete – a few minutes. Click Next

When installation completes, deselect Run Quickstart and click Done.

Start JDeveloper Studio from the Windows Programs menu: Oracle Fusion Middleware

 or run C:\Middleware\SOASuite11gR1PS6\JDev11gR1PS6\jdeveloper\jdeveloper.exe

Select Default Role, de-select Always prompt for role selection on startup, and click OK

If you see the Confirm Import Preferences dialog click Yes or No as desired, usually No is appropriate.

Step 11:Update JDeveloper with latest SOA extension

Select Help/Check For Updates

Click Next

Select install from local file.
Browse for file and open. 
Click Next 

Click Next and Finish.

Click Yes to restart the JDeveloper and finish the installation of the SOA extension.

Step 12:Starting servers

Start the Admin Server

Open command window and enter the command
Cd C:\Middleware\SOASuite11gR1PS6\user_projects\domains\soaosbps6devdomain\bin
