SOA Suite and BPM Suite Common Functionality

 

Installing Oracle SOA Suite 10.1.3.5 with Exalogic Hosts


Bug: 11790184
Added: 4-October-2012
Platform: All
Release: 10.1.3.5

Note the following issues when installing Oracle SOA Suite 10.1.3.5 with Exalogic hosts.

  1. Exalogic hosts do not support the installation of a 10g Oracle database. To run Oracle SOA Suite 10.1.3.5 on Exalogic, you must point to a 10g database installed on a non-Exalogic host. Note that you must add database IP addresses in the proxy settings inside the opmn.sh and obsetenv.sh files.
  2. Installation tricks and tips:
    1. Installers must be run with the -ignoreSysPrereqs flag.
    2. The 10.1.3.1 installer throws warnings at prerequisite checks. These can be ignored, and do not prevent the installer from going to the next step in the installation.
    3. The 10.1.3.1 installer throws an error in invoking the target makefile, as shown below.

      Error in invoking target 'install' of makefile '/scratch/ 10135SOA/OracleAS_1/sqlplus/lib/ins_sqlplus.mk.'

      This is because of missing packages.

      Workaround: Click the Continue button.

    4. The 10.1.3.1 Oracle WSM Configuration Assistant fails with an error indicating that the deletion of directory owsm/db has failed.
    5. Workaround: Make the corresponding ant task.

    6. The 10.1.3.1 Oracle HTTP Server fails to start. Fix this by creating the following symbolic link:
    7. ln -s /usr/lib/libgdbm.so.2.0.0 /usr/lib/libdb.so.2

    8. The 10.1.3.5 Installer pauses in the Configuration Wizard when processing the Run One-off Generic OPatches object in the configuration list with the following message:
    9. Invoking fuser on /scratch/10135/jlib/oraclepki.jar.

      Workaround: Use grep to search for the fuser process two times and kill the oraclepki.jar and ojpse.jar processes.

    10. The 10.1.3.5 Configuration Wizard fails at orabpel/rulehelp deployment.

      Workaround: Open the command from another prompt and then retry deploying the corresponding EAR file.

      For example:

      java -jar /scratch/10135SOA/OracleAS_1/j2ee/home/admin_client.jar
      deployer:oc4j:opmn://machine:6004/oc4j_soa oc4jadmin password
      -deploy -bindAllWebApps default-web-site -file
      Oracle_Home/rules/webapps/rulehelp.ear -deploymentName rulehelp

      Once done, click the Retry button in the Configuration Wizard.

  3. SDP is not applicable for an Oracle SOA Suite 10g installation.
  4. Oracle SOA Suite 10135 is certified with JDK1.6.0_24-b07.
  5. Follow these steps to change from JDK1.5 to JDK1.6:

    1. Stop the servers.
    2. Rename the existing JDK folder under the Oracle home to, for example, JDK1.5.
    3. Install JDK1.6.0_24-b07 and rename it to JDK.
    4. Start the servers.
  6. Oracle SOA Suite 10.1.3.5 is certified using the upgrade path from Oracle SOA Suite 10.1.3.1.

    That is, install SOA 10.1.3.1 and patch it with 10.1.3.5.

    Other topologies should logically work:

    10.1.3.1 to 10.1.3.3 to 10.1.3.4 to 10.1.3.5

    10.1.3.1 to 10.1.3.3 to 10.1.3.5


Data Manipulation for complexType Objects that are Not XML Element Types


Bug: 9712729
Updated: 11-July-2011
Platform: All
Release: 10.1.3.4

In the NotificationService.xsd file, the ArrayOfResponseType is defined as a complex type, and not as an element type.

<xsd:complexType name="ArrayOfResponseType">
  <xsd:sequence>
     <xsd:element name="Response" type="ResponseType" maxOccurs="unbounded"/>
   </xsd:sequence>
</xsd:complexType>

If you use the Notification Service to send out emails and configure a response message using the MessageID attribute, this can cause errors if you provide a full XPath expression query in, for example, an assign activity:

<assign name="AssignResult">
         <copy>
           <from variable="varNotificationResponse" part="Responses"
                 query="/Responses/ns1:Response/ns1:MessageId"/>
           <to variable="outputVariable" part="payload"            
            query="/client:EmailGetMessageIdFromResponseProcessResponse/
             client:result"/>
         </copy>
       </assign>

Workaround: The reason that the query is not valid when using the root element structure is that it represents an XML element. Instead, provide the relative path in cases of complexTypes. For example:

<assign name="AssignResult">
  <copy>
    <from variable="varNotificationResponse" part="Responses"
      query="ns1:Response/ns1:MessageId"/>
    <to variable="outputVariable" part="payload"
      query="/client:EmailGetMessageIdFromResponseProcessResponse/
       client:result"/>
  </copy>
</assign>

Inconsistencies Result from Renaming Project Components


Bug: 10221421
Updated: 15-June-2011
Platform: All
Release: 10.1.3.5

Renaming project components in Oracle JDeveloper can result in inconsistencies in Oracle ESB projects. It is not recommended that you change component or file names once a project has been created.


Incorrect Links to Documentation in Release 10.1.3.4 Release Notes


Bug: 08825523
Updated: 15-June-2011
Platform: All
Release: 10.1.3.4

The Oracle Application Server Release Notes and New Features document for 10g Release 3 (10.1.3.4) dated October 2008 refers to obsolete documentation links in section 6.33.3. This section should link to Oracle Enterprise Service Bus Developer's Guide for resequencing information. This section also references a bug (6856169) that was not released.


Delay in Updating Status for Resubmittable Instances


Bug: 08675919
Updated: 15-June-2011
Platform: All
Release: 10.1.3.5

When an asynchronous instance fails, it is initially shown as not able to be resubmitted. After a short delay, the resubmit option becomes available.


Correct Format for enableAccessBusiness Event


Bug: 06942480
Updated: 15-June-2011
Platform: All
Release: 10.1.3.3

In the Oracle SOA Suite Best Practices Guide for 10g Release 3 (10.1.3.3.0), the enableAccessBusinessEvent property is incorrectly listed as EnableAccessBusinessEvent. The property name begins with a lowercase "e" and will not work if specified with an uppercase "E".


Error Searches Return Non-Error Instances


Bug: 05582948
Updated: 15-June-2011
Platform: All
Release: 10.1.3.1

Searches for instances with an error status return successful instances as well (specifically, they also return instances that were resubmitted successfully after an error). Similarly, searches for instances that can be resubmitted return instances that were already resubmitted successfully.
