Fusion Middleware 12C: Deploy the MDS using Maven by Hugo Hendriks


clip_image002In two previous posts here and here, I demonstrated how you can setup CI for OFM 12C projects. One of the things I hadn’t figured out yet was how I could deploy the MDS using Maven. After a vague hint on the internet, Oracle’s response that this feature wasn’t officially supported yet and some trial and error I came across the solution. It is actually quite simple.

Basically it comes down to this:

  • Create a zip file of the files you want to stick into the MDS
  • Use the com.oracle.soa.plugin:oracle-soa-plugin:deploy maven goal to deploy it

That wasn’t that hard as you can see clip_image003Let’s go into a bit more detail. You can use a command line to create the zip or use the maven-assembly-plugin to give you a bit more flexibility. I used the last option because I wanted to filter certain files. Within my Jenkins job, I checked out my MDS files and zipped them using the package goal into a file called sca-MDS_rev1.0.jar. Look in the plugin section in the pom file down below to see about the configuration of the assembly plugin. The pom file is just a copy of a normal soa composite project.
