Get started with MDS by Vivek Garg

Oracle has introduced couple of new features in Oracle SOA Suite 12c. I have listed couple of new features that Oracle introduced for developer in my post. These new features really make developers life easy as these reduce development cycle.
Here we discuss about MDS and what all featured introduced in that. As we know MDS is used to store artifacts like WSDL, XSD, XSLT etc. we have two types of MDS, File based MDS and DB based MDS. In Oracle SOA 12c, when we use default server which is integrated with Jdeveloper then we can use only Design Time MDS (File Based MDS), Run Time MDS (DB Based MDS) is not supported. Check this post to create design time MDS connection. In Oracle SOA 12c release, Oracle provided couple of new options that we can use when we use Design Time MDS, these options were not there in 11g. Below are options available with Design Time MDS. vivek

  • Create and Delete folders
  • Export and Import MDS artifacts
  • Transfer Artifacts between MDS repositories

In this post, we discussed these options one by one. Get started with Oracle SOA 12c.

We can simple add and remove folders from design time MDS repository. To add a new folder to it, simply right click on the apps folder and choose “Create Folder”. Read the complete article here.
