Configuring HTTPS between Integration Cloud Service and Java Cloud Service by Rob Otto


In a previous post, I discussed some general topics relating to the usage of HTTPS and certificates within Oracle Public Cloud. In this follow up piece, I will work through a concrete example and explain how to set up a Java Cloud Service instance in such a way that Integration Cloud Service can consume a service deployed to that platform over HTTPS.

The use case we have in mind here is a simple one. A custom REST-based service is deployed to WebLogic on JCS (I’ll use a simple Servlet that returns a JSON payload). An integration defined in Integration Cloud Service uses the REST adaptor to invoke that service over HTTPS. Since JCS is an example of a compute-based PaaS service, it is provisioned by default without an external hostname and with a self-signed certificate mapped to the Load Balancer IP Address. This is different to the ICS instance, which is accessible via an * hostname with an automatically-trusted certificate. The first thing we will do is configure JCS to use a hostname that we provide, rather than the IP address. We’ll then look at how to provision a certificate for that instance and then finally, how to configure ICS.

I’ve used a JCS instance based on WebLogic 12.1.3 and Oracle Traffic Director for this post. Exact steps may differ somewhat for other versions of the service.

Configuring JCS with your own hostname

I’ve deployed my simple Servlet to WebLogic via the console and for now, the only option available to me is to access it via the IP address of the JCS Load Balancer. We can see from the screenshots below that my web browser first prompts me to accept the self-signed certificate before accessing the end point, which is not what we want to happen: Read the complete article here.
