Oracle SOA Suite 11g – Enabling the Test button in EM Console for the Composites initiated by the Polling Adapters (MQ, DB).

Oracle SOA Suite 11g – Enabling the Test button in EM Console for the Composites initiated by the Polling Adapters (MQ, DB).


In 11g the Test button in EM Console for the Composites initiated by the Polling Adapters like DB and MQ (Components that are initiated by DB/MQ Pollers) are not enabled by default but in 10g it was enabled by default.


In some scenarios we may need to test these (Composite initiated by polling) composites manually from EM console instead of polling the data from target.
By following the below steps the test button in EM console can be enabled for the Composites initiated by Poller.
1. Open the Composite.xml design view in JDeveloper.
2. Drag and drop web service from service Adapters to the Exposed Services section of the Composite.xml

Oracle SOA Suite 11g - Common adf-config.xml to deploy all the composites to different environments through ANT.

Oracle SOA Suite 11g - Common adf-config.xml to deploy all the composites to different environments through ANT.


The common adf-config.xml file can be used to deploy all the composites instead of using the adf-config file from the individual composite applications.
The adf-config file configurations can be changed at runtime through ant script to deploy the composites to different environments.

By this approach, we can reduce the maintenance of individual adf-config files also by using the same adf-config file the composites can be deployed to different environments.

1. Copy.adf folder from any of the Composite application to the common location.


2. Change the contents of the adf-config.xml with below contents (change the file according to your requirement.)
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1252" standalone="no"?>
<adf-config xmlns="http://xmlns.oracle.com/adf/config" xmlns:adf="http://xmlns.oracle.com/adf/config/properties" xmlns:config="http://xmlns.oracle.com/bc4j/configuration" xmlns:sec="http://xmlns.oracle.com/adf/security/config">

Oracle SOA Suite 10g to 11g Migration - Unable to access the following endpoint : REPLACE_WITH_ACTUAL_URL

Unable to access the following endpoint : REPLACE_WITH_ACTUAL_URL:


The invocation of the synchronous web service from the composite has failed with the following error after migrating the code to Oracle SOA Suite 11g.

"Unable to access the following endpoint : REPLACE_WITH_ACTUAL_URL"

After a long struggle ,we have identified the issue .The issue was with the callback interface was wrongly configured with the value same us interface during the migration in the composite.xml and the component files of the composite that invokes the web service(synchronous) that doesn't support any callback .

Composite.xml with callback configured as same as interface:


Component file with callback configured as same as interface:




Oracle SOA Suite 10g to 11g Migration - Unable to register a service endpoint for a defined reference callback

Unable to register a service endpoint for a defined reference callback:

The invocation of the asynchronous web service from the composite has failed with the following error after migrating the code to Oracle SOA Suite 11g.

"Unable to register a service endpoint for a defined reference callback. Please ensure the WSDL and reference configuration are correct".

After a long struggle ,we have identified the issue .The issue was with the callback interface was wrongly configured with the value same us interface(no separate callback port is defined in the WSDL) during the migration in the composite.xml and the component files of the composite that invokes the asynchronous web service that doesn't have any callback defined.
