Quick Start Guide to Oracle SOA 12c
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.

Quick Start Introduction
This lecture provides an introduction to the course. I will set expectations and explain what you will get out of this free course.
Quick blurb about your instructor.
This is where you'll find the Lab Guide. In the video I will go over the organization and thought behind the lab guide.
The lab guide is attached to this lecture as a PDF. Please check under Resources / Downloadable materials.
Course System Requirements
Understand system requirements to perform the lab.
I've made some assumptions about those taking this course and the lab environment. Very important that you review this video so your expectations for this course are properly set.
Download and Install SOA 12c
Download Oracle SOA 12c
In this lecture I will show you how to create an OTN account on oracle.com and download Oracle SOA 12c.
Install Oracle SOA 12c
In this lecture you will learn the process for installing Oracle SOA 12c Quick Start.
Lab #2 - Install Oracle SOA 12c
This lecture will walk through the lab exercise for installing Oracle SOA 12c using the Quick Start distribution.
Lab # 3 - Create SOA Domain
In this lab I will show you how to create a stand alone SOA domain using qs_config script. This is the preferred method for creating a SOA domain for development purposes.
Create a SOA Domain
Learn the differences between different SOA domains used in the Quick Start Distribution.
Install on Windows
This video will show you the slight nuance to installing Oracle SOA 12c on Windows. Overall the process is the same, however I want to demonstrate opening a command prompt with administrative privileges.
Lab #4 - Configure JDeveloper
Oracle SOA 12c Quick Start comes with a copy of JDeveloper specifically for developing SOA applications. It also supports deploying those applications directly to Oracle WebLogic from within the IDE.
In this lab you will launch JDeveloper and configure a SOA target.
