Connecting to Oracle BPEL hosted on WebSphere Application Server 6.1 with JDeveloper

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.

  1. In JDeveloper, flip to the connections view.
  2. Create a new Application Server Configuration.
    1. Choose to create a Standalone OC4J 10g 10.1.3 Connection Type
    2. Enter your username and password to connect to the application server
    3. Enter the hostname
    4. 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.
    5. Click Test Connection. You should get back a warning that ORMI couldn’t be contacted. That’s ok, you can ignore it.
  3. Create a new Integration Server.
    1. Use the Application Server connection created above.
    2. Click Test Connection.
    3. 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.
