Before I could do any of the steps below to invoke a REST service or install my BPEL suitcase, I needed to figure out how to connect JDeveloper to my application server. It’s not an obvious procedure.
- In JDeveloper, flip to the connections view.
- Create a new Application Server Configuration.
- Choose to create a Standalone OC4J 10g 10.1.3 Connection Type
- Enter your username and password to connect to the application server
- Enter the hostname
- For RMI Port, I had to use the port defined for ‘WC_defaulthost ‘ which was 9080. This part I don’t understand. I would have thought that 2809 was correct but it didn’t work. Take this step with a grain of salt.
- Click Test Connection. You should get back a warning that ORMI couldn’t be contacted. That’s ok, you can ignore it.
- Create a new Integration Server.
- Use the Application Server connection created above.
- Click Test Connection.
- Obtain the following result:
“Application Server: FAILED
BPEL Process Manager Server: OK
ESB Server: FAILED”
You now have a connection to the Oracle BPEL contained inside of WebSphere. You can now right click your BPEL project and choose “Deploy” to install the app on the server.
