Patching JDeveloper 12.1.3 for OSB and SOA by Jon Petter Hjulstad Keeping your JDeveloper SOA/OSB Quickstart environment up to date
November 15, 2016 Leave a comment
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
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 184.108.40.206.1 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.
