Getting started with Oracle Service Bus 12c: importing 11g sources

by Laurens van der Starre on June 27, 2014 · 8 comments

Oracle has finally announced 12c, so now everybody can get their hands on it. One of the new features is that Oracle Service Bus development is integrated into Oracle jDeveloper Studio.

One way to get started quickly is by simply importing your 11g service bus sources into 12c.

First export your 11g sources, either from the Servicebus Console or Eclipse (OEPE):

Export from OEPEThen, this sbconfig.jar is easily imported into the new Oracle jDeveloper Studio 12c (as expected):

The wizard flow is basically the same as importing resources into Eclipse in 11g:



import-config-3And finally you have your 11g sourvces converted to the new “SCA-like” IDE of 12c.

import-complete If you have multiple proxy services in the same project, they will all be placed into the same overview. That can look a bit crowded. So probably some rework is required. But that was also the case with Oracle SOA Suite 10g migration to 11g, so we’re used to that 🙂

Happy coding!

what are the benefits of migrating from 11g to 12c? Any new features or advanced functionalities? We are currently considering if it is worth it to migrate. Thanks a lot for reply.

Apart from bugfixes, some new features in OSB 12c, the new Enterprise Manager, the main reason to consider upgrading to OSB12c would be the jDeveloper IDE if you ask me. In 12c you only need one IDE for everything. You have the XSLT transformation editor, XQuery, you can config your JCA adapters there. No need to switch between Eclipse and jDev as you would in 11g.

Hi,I want to export & import the osb resources using wlst script on SOA12c.

Would you please help me for getting the scripts for importing & osb configuration.

I am looking for a way to export and import osb jars via script as well. Kindly share if you have a working script (ant, wlst, python or maven).

Web Services Migration from OSB 10gR3 to 12c.
We are in the process of migrating the Web Services from OBS 10gR3 to OSB 12c. There are some Active and Non-Active Web Services are there in 10gR3. Our requirement is to migrate only Active Web Services and Non-Active Web Services needs to be dropped during the migration.
We have to drop the Web Services which are NOT Active (NOT IN USE) during the migration process. Only the Active Web Services need to be migration into OSB 12c.
Is there any Oracle Document which suggest the steps to find out the Active and Non-Active Web Services in OSB 10gR3?
Is there any other alternative way to find it out.
How to optimize the existing OSB Web Servcies?
Please help us on this and appreciated you help in advance
