This illustration compares the topology of Oracle SOA Suite deployed on Oracle Application Server 10g versus the Oracle SOA Suite deployed on Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g.
A box on the left represents the Oracle Application Server 10g instance. Inside the box are smaller boxes representing an Oracle HTTP Server instance and an OC4J instance. The SOA services are deployed on the OC4J instance, along with some custom applications and Application Server Control. The application server instance is connected to a database where the SOA schemas are installed.
The box on the right represents the Oracle WebLogic Server domain, which contains an administration server and a single managed server. The administration server hosts the Administration Console; the managed server hosts the SOA Java components and some composite applications. A callout explains that the SOA Java components were installed using the SOA domain template and the Oracle WebLogic Server Configuration Wizard. The domain, like the Oracle Application Server 10g instance, is connected to a database that contains the SOA schemas.
