Oracle's SOA Suite 12c product is the leading enterprise SOA development and integration platform on the market today. Oracle SOA Suite allows organizations to build reusable business services, integrations, and model business processes rapidly using the latest industry standards such as SCA, BPEL, SOAP and REST.  

A traditional enterprise deployment of Oracle SOA 12c requires an enterprise database deployment (read: NO MYSQL or similar support) along with a distributed deployment. Such a deployment is overkill and unnecessary to build a development or proof of concept environment.

In this course, you will learn how to use the Quick Start distribution to stand up an Oracle SOA 12c development environment rather than spending hours installing the full distribution.  You will learn where to find the Quick Start distribution and how to install and create a SOA domain. Lastly, I will show you how to launch and connect JDeveloper to a SOA domain.

  • Java and/or SOA Developers
