Jump-Start your Oracle SOA Projects in FlexDeploy by Dan Reynebeau


In an effort to simplify the population of existing composites on a server into FlexDeploy projects, we have provided a utility to extract composites from a SOA server into a comma delimited file. This file can then be the basis for a spreadsheet that can be loaded directly into FlexDeploy, through the use of templates, and all of the composite projects can be created in seconds. I will talk about templates in another blog post.

The composite extraction from a SOA server can be done with the attached zip file (extractComposites).  There are three components in the zip file:

  • Property file that contains the userName, password, hostName and hostPort for the targeted SOA server
  1. #Weblogic server username and password
  2. server.user=weblogic
  3. server.password=welcome1
  4. #server.host=
  5. server.host=soalt06.flexagon
  6. #server.port=
  7. server.port=8001
  • CompositeMgmt.jar that contains the code that interrogates the targeted server
  • ExtractComposites.sh that contains the script that manages the jvm and classpath
