As you all know that the Oracle 12c is out now… this is the first Major release where oracle has now combined the Oracle Service Bus with the SOA Suite Install… and its apparently only a 30 min single installation…
So firstly download the soa suite from http://download.oracle.com/otn/nt/middleware/12c/121300/fmw_22.214.171.124.0_soaqs_Disk1_1of1.zip
SOA Suite 12.1.3 Size: 2.97 GB, Check Sum: 1579850769
Note: The generic SOA Suite Quick Start Installer for developers is used on all platforms. It allows you to quickly install a development or evaluation environment on a single host computer. It includes Oracle BPEL Process Manager, Oracle Human Workflow, Oracle Business Rules, Oracle Mediator, Oracle Service Bus, Technology Adapters Oracle Enterprise Scheduler, SOA Spring Component, Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control, Oracle JDeveloper with SOA IDE extensions and an integrated WebLogic Server and Java DB.
You can see the official quick start guide at http://docs.oracle.com/middleware/1213/core/SOAQS/integrated.htm#BEIJCGGE
Few things to note are
It needs JDK 1.7 so I downloaded (64 Bit) that from http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/7u60-b19/jdk-7u60-windows-i586.exe
Next Set your JAVA_HOME
SET JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.7.0_60
Now we are all set to go….Open Command Prompt.
IMPORTANT: It needs you to run that in admin mode.
Search for cmd.exe in the Start menu. Right-click the
cmd.exe and select Run as Administrator.
In the command prompt, use the Java executable from the JDK on your system. Your command may look like this:
%JAVA_HOME%\bin\java -jar fmw_126.96.36.199.0_soa_quickstart.jar I did this and got the error in the screenshot…
Note by default windows installs to Program files location which has a space so I had to use “” with “JAVA_HOME” and then it fired just fine. C:\Nitin\SOA\SOA12c>”%JAVA_HOME%”\bin\java -jar fmw_188.8.131.52.0_soa_quickstart.jar
That’s it now it’s time to sit back and relax….
Once you hit finish it launches Jdeveloper for the first time… Prompts to select the role I chose the studio role and allowed to import preferences from my previous installs which is optional.
ALL DONE…. Happy Developing….
