SOA 12c Migration by Matt Wright


Most organizations when migrating to Oracle SOA 12c or Oracle BPM 12s choose to perform a side-by-side upgrade, as it:

  • requires zero downtime,
  • supports all SOA and BPM components,
  • allows for a phased migration,
  • involves significantly less risk.

This involves provisioning a new instance of SOA 12c, replicating the configurations from your 11g platform and migrating and deploying your code. Once ready, you then switch over from 11g to 12c.

Most organizations fail to maintain accurate documentation of their current 11g configurations, so have to manually reverse engineer their existing 11g production configurations, so they can be re-applied to their new 12c environments. This is both a time consuming and error prone approach.

Rubicon Red MyST provides a simple and automated process for side-by-side upgrades. MyST allows you to introspect an existing 11g environment, extract the key configuration information and then use this to automatically provision an equivalent 12c environment in minutes.

Side-By-Side Upgrades made Simple

When performing a side-by-side upgrade, you simply point MyST at an existing 11g environment, MyST will introspect the platform instance and create a corresponding 11g Platform Blueprint.

Next, just specify the Oracle Middleware 12c version required. MyST will automatically convert the blueprint to one that is compliant with the Oracle Enterprise Deployment Guide for SOA 12c, whilst preserving your 11g configurations.

Finally, specify the target environment(s), for the new SOA 12c domain. Then at the click of a button, MyST will automatically provision an equivalent 12c Oracle Middleware platform.

The end-to-end process consists of three simple steps and can be performed in minutes.

Step 1 – Introspect SOA / BPM 11gR1 Domain

For the purpose of this blog, we are going to introspect an existing Oracle SOA environment running on two VMs, that consists of a 2 node SOA Cluster and 2 node OSB Cluster. Read the complete article here.
