The fast adoption of technology disrupters - cloud, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) - is resulting in exponential growth in the number and complexity of integration challenges faced by organizations. This is what makes the latest release of the Oracle SOA platform the most important to date. Oracle SOA 12c was developed to simplify integration by unifying the disparate requirements of mobile, cloud, and IoT into one unified platform. Whilst delivering key capabilities to improve developer productivity. Now in it's third year, SOA 12c has proven itself as a mature and stable release. With the end of Premier Support for SOA 11g approximately 2 years away, many organizations believe now is the right time to upgrade to SOA 12c.

Options for Upgrading to Oracle SOA 12c
There are two options for migrating from Oracle SOA 11gR1 to SOA 12c:

In-Place Upgrade This involves shutting down your existing 11g installation, install SOA 12c in a new Oracle Home, upgrade the existing 11g domain and database in- place and rewire the domain to the new Oracle Home. You should be able to restart the existing installation as a 12c instance.Side-By-Side Upgrade This involves provisioning a new instance of SOA 12c, replicating the configurations from your 11g platform and deploying your code. Once ready, you then switch over from 11g to 12c.

Challenges Upgrading to SOA 12c

Most organizations choose a side-by-side upgrade, as it requires zero downtime, supports all SOA components and involves significantly less risk. The challenge when compared to an in-place upgrade, is you need to systematically capture and re-apply configurations in your existing 11g domain to the new 12c domain.

Most organizations fail to maintain accurate documentation of their current 11g configurations, so have to manually reverse engineer their existing 11g production configurations, so they can be re-applied to their new 12c environments. This is both a time consuming and error prone approach.

Side-By-Side Upgrades made Simple

GoLogica Technologies MyST provides a simple and automated process for side-by-side upgrades, all done in minutes, with 3 simple steps

Introspect - Point MyST at an existing 11g environment. MyST will introspect the platform instance and create a corresponding 11g Platform Blueprint.

Convert - Specify the Oracle Middleware 12c version required. MyST will automatically convert the blueprint to one that is compliant with the Oracle Enterprise Deployment Guide for SOA 12c, whilst preserving your 11g configurations.

Create - Specify the target environment(s), for the new SOA 12c domain. Then, at the click of a button, MyST will automatically provision an equivalent 12c Oracle Middleware platform in minutes.

Regardless of whether you perform an In-Place or Side-by-Side upgrade, you will need to migrate your 11g code to 12c, then build and deploy it. Performing this manually is resource intensive and highly error prone - incorrect deployment is one of the most common causes of issues when promoting code into a staging or production environment, especially in migration projects.

MyST leverages declarative deployment to fully automate the deployment and configuration of your Oracle Middleware applications. ons.
