Oracle SOA Suite 11g Administrator's Handbook

By: Arun Pareek, Ahmed Aboulnaga

Overview of this book

Oracle SOA Suite 11g is the backbone of messaging and application integration in a service-oriented architecture. An application administrator is responsible for an end-to-end administration and management of the infrastructure. Understanding the underlying components, services, and configuration and their relations to each other is necessary to effectively administer the Oracle SOA Suite 11g environment. Due to its sheer size, administering Oracle SOA Suite 11g is a daunting task.This book provides detailed explanations of all the core administrative and management activities around Oracle SOA Suite. It includes compact information for end-to-end administration of Oracle SOA Suite 11g. It delves into advanced topics such as silent installs, cloning, backup and recovery and high availability installations.Using this book, you will be able to administer and secure your Oracle SOA Suite services and applications. You will follow examples that you can use in your everyday life as a SOA Suite administrator. The book begins with managing composite applications, their deployments and lifecycles and then moves on to monitoring instances, service engines, Weblogic Server and composite applications. With a detailed coverage of topics like the administration of individual service components as well as configuring MBeans using both Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control and WLST-based scripts, you will be equipped to work with any services and applications.Towards the end, you will be taken through identifying faults & exceptions, troubleshooting approaches, and securing various components.

Troubleshooting deployment issues

It is important to understand that deploying composites, in fact, consumes server resources. If you deploy tens or hundreds of composites to the server, you will see a direct impact on the size of the JVM heap (that is, the available heap size will continue to go down as more and more composites are deployed within a short period of time). We therefore recommend not deploying during expected heavy or peak times.

Chapter 2, Management of SOA Composite Applications describes how to use ant to deploy composite projects, but here we will take a closer look at the entire deployment process.

Knowing where to look

Let's observe the output of the ant deployment of the HelloWorld composite as shown in the following snippet. As you can see, the deployment failed due to a java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space error.
