Recently Carlos and I were given the opportunity to explore the capabilities of the recently released Oracle SOA Cloud Service (SOACS), and to document the steps required to get started with the service.
In this series of blog posts we have put together a record of what we did, and our key takeaways from what we learned during the process in the expectation that it may help others new to the Oracle Public Cloud and specifically the Oracle SOA Suite Cloud Service.

Configuring Oracle JDeveloper to deploy into SOACS
Creating an Application Server connection in JDeveloper to any SOACS environment is slightly different than doing it against a traditional WebLogic and SOA environment. The main difference is that the SOA CS environment is governed by Oracle Compute Cloud Service (IaaS), which by default establishes a few network restrictions.

Provisioning a SOA CS environment via REST APIs
In a previous blog we have explained the steps required to provision OPC services such as: Database Cloud Service, Java Cloud Service, SOA Cloud Service (SOA, OSB, SOA & OSB, API Manager), etc. using the OPC Services Console web pages.
In this section we explain how to provision the same type of environments (in our case SOA + OSB), but this time we will use the Oracle Cloud Service REST APIs.
The REST APIs are very well documented for the vast portfolio of Oracle Cloud Services. For more information refer to http://docs.oracle.com/cloud.

SOA Suite and API Manager Provisioning
Provisioning a SOA environment via SOA CS Console
You will realise very soon that provisioning a DB CS via the Cloud Service Console is almost identical than provisioning Java Cloud Service (JCS) environments, SOA/OSB Cloud Service environments, API Manager Cloud Service environments, etc. It will only change minor configurations that apply to each type of service cloud.

The following steps detail how we provisioned an Oracle Database using the Oracle Database Cloud Service Console.
The database is required in our scenario for two purposes, for the SOA MDS repository and also to allow us to create a schema and a few tables to support our end to end SOA demo.

Object Storage Provisioning
Oracle Storage Cloud Service (OSCS) enables businesses to store and manage digital content in the cloud. Stored objects can be retrieved directly by external clients or by applications running within Oracle Cloud. A container is just a storage compartment that provides a way to organize the data stored in OSCS.
Oracle Public Cloud (OPC) uses OSCS storage containers to host the artefacts produced by the built-in automated backup feature.

The Oracle Public Cloud offers a number of Platform As A Service (PaaS) services including SOA Suite Cloud Service. In order to provision an instance of SOACS there are a number of pre-requisite steps.
- Object Storage needs to be created. This Object storage is required for Database backup storage.
- A database instance needs to be provisioned and the object storage created in Step 1 referenced.
- SOACS can then be provisioned, and during the process the Repository Creation Utility is run against the database created in step 2.

We wanted to include a number of SOA components into our demonstration scenario. These components included some of those well-known SOA Suite capabilities such as Mediator, BPEL, and Human Workflow.
The use of SOACS also provided us an opportunity to explore interaction with other Oracle Public Cloud services such as Storage, Database, API Manager, and Oracle Messaging Cloud Services.
