Patching JDeveloper 12.1.3 for OSB and SOA by Jon Petter Hjulstad Keeping your JDeveloper SOA/OSB Quickstart environment up to date



Oracle released new patches some weeks ago, and to keep your JDeveloper updated for SOA Suite and Oracle Service Bus there are three products you should patch:

  • Oracle SOA Suite
  • Oracle Service Bus
  • Weblogic

When you search My Oracle Support (MOS) for patches – you can see which ones are the recommended ones. There are also notes in MOS which are updated regularly:

  • OSB 11g and 12c: Bundle Patch Reference (Doc ID 1499170.1)
  • SOA 11g and 12c: Bundle Patch Reference (Doc ID 1485949.1)
  • Master Note on WebLogic Server Patch Set Updates (PSUs) (Doc ID 1470197.1)

In the environment I used for this example. Patch 19707784: SOA Bundle Patch was applied before. This will be detected by OPatch, and that patch will be rolled back.

The patching is simplified in the 12c-version, because now there is only one OPatch-folder to care about (in version 11 there were one per product). You can read more about it here: Oracle Documentation link

For each patch there is a README.txt, whick you should read. It contains Pre-Installation Instructions, Install and Post-Instructions. For the SOA-patch, you should look through the steps for the Post-steps

I use Windows environment in this example, so I set the environment variables first (run as Administrator): Read the complete article here.
