Uploading files to Oracle Document Cloud Service using SOA by Shreenidhi Raghuram


This blog provides a quick tip for implementing file upload into Oracle Document Cloud Service (DOCS) using java in Oracle SOA and Oracle SOA Cloud Service(SOACS)

The DOCS upload REST service requires POSTing of multipart form, a feature that is currently unavailable in the REST cloud adapter. This POST request to upload a file contains 2 body parts. The first being a json payload and the second containing the actual file content.

The request format looks as shown here in the Oracle Documents Cloud Service REST API Reference.

The section below shows a java embedded block of code that can be used within a BPEL process to achieve the file upload. This can be used in Oracle SOA and SOACS – BPEL composites. A valid DOCS endpoint, credentials for authorization, and a GUID of the folder location for the file upload are required to execute this REST call.
In this sample, a pdf document file is being uploaded into DOCS. The media type should be appropriately changed for other content formats.
Also, It is recommended to access the authorization credentials from a credential store when developing for production deployments. This section is only intended as a demo. Read the complete article here.
