SOA Suite 12c: Topology Suggestions by Jay Kasi

 

In this article, I make some suggestions and provide opinions on topologies recommended in SOA Suite 12c.

· Typically Service Bus and SOA Suite belong in different tiers in an end to end architecture so they would be in separate domains. However if Service Bus is used primarily for mediating and providing routing for SOA Suite Composites in a domain, it could be in the same domain, but typically in separate clusters for optimum performance and scalability. However it  is possible starting in 12c to have Service Bus and SOA Suite in the same cluster.

· Governance products like OER and UDDI should not be in a SOA Suite or Service Bus domain. They should be in a separate domain. OER should be in a separate domain from UDDI.

· One consideration when deciding on topologies is that Upgrade is always domain wide. All products deployed to the domain must release in the same release train and you should be willing to upgrade all of them at the same time.

· You can target multiple products to the same cluster by targeting the appropriate user extensible server group to  the servers in the cluster.

1. SOA Suite is targeted to a server by targeting either the user extensible server group SOA-MGD-SVRS or SOA-MGD-SVRS-ONLY.

2. Service Bus is targeted to a server by targeting either the user extensible server group OSB-MGD-SVRS-COMBINED or OSB-MGD-SVRS-ONLY.

3. BAM is targeted to a server by targeting either the user extensible server group BAM12-MGD-SVRS or BAM12-MGD-SVRS-ONLY.

4. MFT is targeted to a server by targeting either the user extensible server group MFT-MGD-SVRS or MFT-MGD-SVRS-ONLY.

5. ESS is targeted to a server by targeting the user extensible server group ESS-MGD-SVRS. Read the complete article here
