Oracle Service Bus Service Exploring via WebLogic Server MBeans with JMX by Marc Lameriks


In a previous article I talked about an OSBServiceExplorer tool to explore the services (proxy and business) within the OSB via WebLogic Server MBeans with JMX. The code mentioned in that article was based on Oracle Service Bus (11g).

In the meantime the OSB world has changed (for example now we can use pipelines) and it was time for me to pick up the old code and get it working within Oracle Service Bus (12c).

This article will explain how the OSBServiceExplorer tool uses WebLogic Server MBeans with JMX in an 12c environment.

Unfortunately, getting the java code to work in 12c wasn’t as straightforward as I hoped.

For more details on the OSB, WebLogic Server MBeans and JMX subject, I kindly refer you to my previous article. In this article I will refer to it as my previous MBeans 11g article.]

Before using the OSBServiceExplorer tool in an 12c environment, I first created two OSB Projects (MusicService and TrackService) with pipelines, proxy and business services. I used Oracle JDeveloper 12c ( for this (from within a VirtualBox appliance).

For the latest version of Oracle Service Bus see:

If you want to use a VirtualBox appliance, have a look at for example: Pre-built Virtual Machine for SOA Suite
After deploying the OSB Projects that were created in JDeveloper, to the WebLogic server, the Oracle Service Bus Console 12c (in my case: http://localhost:7101/servicebus) looks like:

Before we dive into the OSBServiceExplorer tool , first I give you some detail information of the “TrackService” (from JDeveloper), that will be used as an example in this article. Read the complete article here.
