Moving SOA to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure by Robert Wunderlich
Many customers are running their workloads on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic (OCI-C), but the new Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) offers compelling benefits that customers should consider moving their workloads to the “gen 2 cloud“. Additionally if the customer is not yet running SOA 188.8.131.52 or above, now is an ideal time to make the move.
A SOA implementation is typically large and serves mission critical requirements. This means that a “side-by-side” migration is the best approach. At a high-level the process is as follows:
- Discover/map the existing OCI-C deployment. Oracle provides a set of tools to help in migrating workloads to OCI. You can learn more about this at Upgrade to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
- Branch your SOA projects: SOA projects can be deployed into a new environment and they will be upgraded on the deployment. However, a better approach is to branch your version control and upgrade the projects in JDeveloper. You can then validate the project to catch any potential issues. Read the complete article here.
