Rapid creation of Virtual Machine(s) for SOA Suite 12.1.3 server run time environment – leveraging Vagrant, Puppet and Biemond by Lucas Jellema


clip_image002In recent previous articles I have discussed the use of Vagrant and Puppet for the automated creation of Virtual Machines, for example with various Oracle software components completely installed into them. In this article, I am merely the consumer of goodies. Edwin Biemond published on GitHub the complete set of Vagrant and Puppet configuration files for creating VMs with the SOA Infra database (Oracle Database, populated with the RCU installer) and the SOA Suite 12.1.3 run time environment – including Service Bus, see: WebLogic 12.1.3 infra (JRF) with SOA,OSB.

In this article, I will describe the steps I took to actually produce the two VMs using Edwin’s scripts. The visual description of the whole process looks something like the next figure: Read the complete article here.

    I am new to this domain,could anyone tell me whether one has to necessariy run Oracle 11g Database and Oracle SOA Suite 12c on the same jdk version.I have configured my Oracle 11g Database with jdk1.5 .0_15 and configured my Oracle SOA Suite 12c with Jdk1.7.0_65 and I have got an error like this:
    I initially had jdk1.8.xx version with soa suite but then I had a problem in deploying the project to the default server though the weblogic server started fine.So I had to uninstall SOA and install a lower version of Jdk which is jdk1.7.0_65.Then I encountered the below
    In the weblogicserver-log

    The JRE was not found in directory C:\PROGRA~2\Java\JDK18~1.0_3.
    please edit your environment and set the JAVA_HOME
    variable to point to the root directory of your Java installation
    press any key to continue . . .[Starting IntegratedWebLogicServer.]
    [waiting for the server to complete its initialization…]

    Should we make any changes in any of the wlserver files(.sh or.cmd files) or bin directories by adding the JAVA_HOME.If so, where exactly should I do that?
    It would be really helpful if someone can provide me with brief steps to install Oracle SOA suite 12c succesfully.
    Please help me resolve this

    Thanks in advance,
