How to install the SOA extensions in Jdeveloper 11g ?

Once you install the Jdeveloper 11g, you cannot Create or Open SOA projects in it. In order to use Jdeveloper 11g for SOA project development, you need to install SOA Extensions in Jdeveloper 11g.

I installed Jdeveloper version and followed below steps to install the SOA extensions –

1) Open your Jdeveloper 11g and Click on Help menu and select “Check for Updates” as shown below

2) A wizard “Check for Updates” is displayed as shown below and click “Next”

3) Under ‘Search Update Centers‘, select  “Oracle Fusion Middleware Products” and “Official Oracle Extensions and Updates” options as shown below & Click Next

4) You will view all the available Extensions and Updates in the wizard as shown below

5) Search for SOA from the available list as shown below

6) Select the “Oracle SOA Composite Editor” and click Next. Now the extension will get downloaded and installed in to your Jdeveloper 11g. You can see the progress bar as shown below

7) Once the extension is installed click “Finish“.

Now you will be able to Create or Open the SOA projects in the Jdeveloper 11g.

    Important Note – This version of JDeveloper doesn’t include the SOA and WebCenter pieces – to use these components you’ll need to download Oracle JDeveloper

      Hi Luiz,
      I had used the Jdeveloper version and followed the steps mentioned above. It works fine for me. Please check once if you had missed any step.

  4. What i don’t realize is if truth be told how you’re now not really
    much more smartly-liked than you may be right now. You are very intelligent.
    You already know therefore significantly relating to this subject, made me individually consider it from a lot of
    various angles. Its like women and men aren’t involved until it is one thing to do with Woman gaga! Your own stuffs outstanding. All the time deal with it up!

  5. I don’t even understand how I ended up here, but I assumed this submit was great. I don’t
    know who you are however definitely you’re going to a famous blogger if you happen to are not already. Cheers!
