Oracle SOA Suite 12c: System Architecture and Administration

Description: Students learn to plan, prepare, and install an Enterprise Deployment Architecture for running Oracle SOA Suite 12c products. Students learn the step by step process of creating an Oracle SOA Suite 12c configuration by using two virtual machines for creating a cluster of WebLogic Server instances.The classroom approach provides the skills to build a solid foundation for creating an environment that supports scalability and high availability, and that is integrated with an LDAP server for authentication and authorization services.The Oracle SOA Suite 12c cluster created provides an operational environment for students to deploy completed SOA Composite applications and they learn to initiate and create run-time instances needed to explore, monitor, troubleshoot, and tune the run-time environment. In addition, students learn to configure and test the email notification service used by SOA composite applications and the human workflow operations, and install and use Oracle Enterprise Scheduler Service.Benefits to youThe aim of this course is to take an administrator through an experience of installing and configuring Oracle SOA Suite 12c in a cluster configuration, deploy application, monitor, tune, and troubleshoot the environment for optimal day to day operation.Live Virtual Class Format

Duration: 5 Days
