2 Installing Oracle Service Bus

This chapter explains how to install Oracle Service Bus. It includes the following topics:

2.1 Obtaining the Software

Depending on your specific needs, there are multiple places where you can obtain Oracle Fusion Middleware software. For details, refer to the Oracle Fusion Middleware Download, Installation, and Configuration ReadMe Files page, where you can find the ReadMe file for your specific release.

Depending on your environment and needs, the following software components may be needed:

2.1.1 Obtaining OEPE and Oracle WebLogic Server

Installation of Oracle Service Bus requires one of the following software components:

  • If you are installing Oracle Service Bus with Oracle Service Bus IDE, download the Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse (OEPE) installer, which includes Oracle WebLogic Server.

    This installer can be downloaded from the Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse 11gR1 (11.1.1.8) download page on Oracle Technology Network. Look for one of the "Full OEPE Installers" near the bottom of the page.

  • If you are installing Oracle Service Bus without Oracle Service Bus IDE, download the Oracle WebLogic Server installer. This installer does not include OEPE.

    This installer can be downloaded from the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Software Downloads page on Oracle Technology Network.

2.1.2 Obtaining a Database and RCU for Reporting Features and OWSM

If you want to use the Oracle Service Bus reporting features or Oracle Web Services Manager, you must also have database that is certified for use with Oracle Fusion Middleware and Repository Creation Utility (RCU), which is the tool used to create the necessary schemas in the database.

The SOA Infrastructure (SOAINFRA) schema must be installed on your database for the reporting feature, and the Metadata Services (MDS) schema must be installed on your database for Oracle Web Services Manager:

2.1.3 Obtaining the Oracle Service Bus Installer

In addition, you will also need the Oracle Service Bus installer, which can also be downloaded from the Release Downloads for Oracle Service Bus page. The Oracle Service Bus installer will be saved to your system as a .zip archive file. After you download the archive file, unpack the archive file into a directory of your choice on the machine where you will be performing the installation.

2.2 Installing Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse and Oracle WebLogic Server

Installing OEPE is required if you are installing Oracle Service Bus with Oracle Service Bus IDE. You must use the OEPE installer, which includes Oracle WebLogic Server. Installing Oracle WebLogic Server creates the Middleware home and WebLogic home directories, which are required for an Oracle Service Bus installation. For more information about these directories, see "Middleware Home and WebLogic Home Directories" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Planning Guide.

To install OEPE with Oracle WebLogic Server, see the Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse Installation Guide.

2.3 Installing Oracle WebLogic Server and Creating the Middleware Home

Installing Oracle WebLogic Server creates the Middleware home and WebLogic home directories, which are required for an Oracle Service Bus installation. For more information about these directories, see "Middleware Home and WebLogic Home Directories" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Planning Guide.

To install Oracle WebLogic Server, see "Running the Installation Program in Graphical Mode" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle WebLogic Server.

Patching Oracle WebLogic Server 10.3.6

After installing the latest version of Oracle WebLogic Server (version 10.3.6), you must install the required patches as described on the "Known Issues for Oracle SOA Products and Oracle AIA Foundation Pack" page on Oracle Technology Network:

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/docs/aiasoarelnotesps6-1866030.html

This must be done before you begin the Oracle Service Bus installation.

2.4 Installing the Schemas for Reporting Features and OWSM

See "Starting RCU" and "Creating Schemas" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Repository Creation Utility User's Guide for instructions on how to run RCU and create the necessary schemas in your database.

2.5 Installing Oracle Service Bus

This section contains the following topics:

2.5.1 Starting the Oracle Service Bus Installer

To start the installer, go to the directory where you unpacked the Oracle Service Bus installer archive file and go to the Disk1 directory.

On UNIX operating systems:

cd unpacked_archive_directory/Disk1
./runInstaller -jreLoc JRE_LOCATION

On Windows operating systems:

cd unpacked_archive_directory\Disk1
setup.exe -jreLoc JRE_LOCATION

The installer requires the full path to the location of a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) on your system, which must be specified using the -jreLoc parameter. When you installed Oracle WebLogic Server, a JRE was installed on your system in the jdk160_version directory inside the Middleware home. You can use this location as the JRE_LOCATION to start the installer.

For information about the log files created by the installer, refer to Section D.2, "Installation and Configuration Log Files" for more information about the log files and their contents.

2.5.2 Following the Oracle Service Bus Installation Screens and Instructions

Follow the instructions in Table 2-1 to install Oracle Service Bus.

If you need additional help with any of the installation screens, refer to Appendix B, "Oracle Service Bus Software Installation Screens" or click Help to access the online help.

2.6 Understanding the State of Oracle Service Bus Components After Installation

This topic provides information about the state of Oracle Service Bus components after installation, including:

2.6.1 Default SSL Configurations

By default, none of the Oracle Service Bus 11g components are installed with SSL configured. You must configure SSL for the Administration Server and Managed Servers by using the Configuration Wizard.

To configure SSL for the Administration Server, run the Configuration Wizard and select SSL enabled on the Configure Administration Server screen, as described in Oracle Fusion Middleware Creating Domains Using the Configuration Wizard.

To configure SSL for Managed Servers, run the Configuration Wizard and select SSL enabled on the Configure Managed Servers screen, as described in Oracle Fusion Middleware Creating Domains Using the Configuration Wizard.

2.6.2 Administration Server Password

Password for the Administration Server is configured during domain creation. For security reasons, after installation, you should change the passwords of the various components so they have different values.

For more information, see "Changing the Administrative User Password" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide.
