Missing BPM plugin issue in BPM Quick Start – How To Fix it by Ganesh Kumar Krishnan


With the release of Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c, Oracle introduced the concept of Quick Start distributions that allow developers to install a development or evaluation environment on a single host computer. The quick start distribution is available for both Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle BPM Process Management Suite and, if you are like me, chances are, you may prefer to install them separately and independently to try out the various new features they offer. Installing them separately also helps with the performance of JDeveloper, as it could reduce the number of design time plugins loaded during the design time.

What is the problem?

When you install the SOA and BPM Quick Start distributions independently, in separate ORACLE_HOMEs, but on the same machine, you may find you run into a problem where the BPM Plugin is missing from the BPM distribution’s JDeveloper IDE.The problem manifests when you launch the JDeveloper IDE from the SOA distribution (before launching the BPM distribution), and will mean that the BPM Plugin extension will not get loaded into the JDeveloper IDE, and you will not be able to develop BPM processes.

Where is the problem?

Although the SOA and BPM Quick Start distributions are different, the underlying JDeveloper IDE is the same, and both IDEs point to the same build version, as shown below. Read the complete article here.
