Create a 12c development server from the SOA 12c Quickstart by Laurens van der Starre

So at the time of writing there is only the “Quickstart” 12C SOA and BPM. That’s all fun and games, it installs straight out of the box.
However, I want a real development environment, and run it on my dev server. So, first thing first. Create Domain

  1. Download the SOA Suite and BPM 12c.
  1. Then install the SOA Suite quick installer.
  2. Install BPM 12c in the same ORACLE_HOME as the SOA Suite.
  3. Make sure you have a certified database available. 11gR2 Express Edition will do (although some warnings will show up).

And now it is business as usual.

  1. Go to your < SOA_SUITE >/common/bin and run rcu. (On Windows, edit the, and change line 112 in such a way that $JAVA_HOME is replaced by the hardcoded path to your java.exe. Otherwise it won’t start).
  2. Create your database schemas as usual. Notice the kickass new features with creating the database schemas: you can now create a database install script from RCU which your DBA can run for you!
  3. After the RCU, go to /wlserver/bin and run config to create your domain!

So the Domain Config Creation Utility is pretty much as we already know from 11g, only more elaborate. Read the complete article here.
