Oracle SOA Suite 10g to 11g Migration - Part1 - Things to consider before starting the migration of the code.


Oracle SOA Suite 10g to 11g Migration - Part1 - Things to consider before starting the migration of the code:

We have to consider the below points before starting the migration of the code.

Move all the Common artifacts (XSD, WSDL, DVM and XREF) to MDS:

Before starting the code migrations move all the common artifacts to MDS with the folder structure that requires for the project.

Partner link Location in bpel.xml:

If the Runtime WSDL’s are used for partner link invocation in 10g,make sure all the partner link URL’s(host name and port) in bpel.xml are reachable else change with reachable endpoints by using ant script or manually.

Common XSD and WSDL References:

Make sure the common XSD’s and WSDL files referred in the 10g projects are reachable else change the location of the URL (host name and port) with reachable by using ant script or manually.

The below sample Ant script can be used to change the host name and port in XSD, WSDL and XML files.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<project name="HostnameReplace">
<replace dir="${basedir}" token="eaidev1:7777" value="${hostname}:${http.port}">
<include name="**/*.xsd"/>
<include name="**/*.wsdl"/>
<include name="**/*.xml"/>
</replace>

<replace dir="${basedir}" token="10.15.35.22:8888" value="${hostname}:${http.port}">
<include name="**/*.xsd"/>
<include name="**/*.wsdl"/>
<include name="**/*.xml"/>
</replace>
</project>

BPEL preferences:

SOA 11g does not accept spaces in preference name and the migration might fail with the following error preference.BPEL Process Name' does not match pattern for xs:NCName,if 10g has the preference name with empty spaces in between , so that they should be trimmed for empty spaces in bpel.xml and *.bpel.


Space in Schema Name:

The migration might fail if the 10g schema has a space in the name, the space should be trimmed in the name and also the places wherever the schema name has reference.
