Welcome to Oracle SOA 12c

Introduction:
New version from Oracle (SOA 12c) was out few months back - Lets explore it with me. Oracle SOA 12c comes with loads of new good features and enhancements.

Prerequisites to Kick-Start:
Lets start with prerequisites which is needed for learning 12c. This section gives required links, all in one place, so that you don't have to wonder places to gather information.

First of all, you need to check your system requirement, if all ok, then you need to have JDK 7 for 12c. Upgrade it, if not yet done.

Link for checking your system requirements:

Once JDK is downloaded, go for SOA 12c download. Keep both ready, so that we can install it altogether.

With Oracle Suite 12c its all easy. All your installation, a sample Hello world, deploy and test will happen with in 30 mins only, its fast. Oracle SOA 12c use Java Derby database, which is file based and that makes it really fast. With 12c, it is now a single installer for developers - means your JDeveloper (IDE), Weblogic, Database and SOA is now integrated, no need to install it separately.
