JDeveloper 11g: Missing BPEL/SOA Suite components?

The new Oracle JDeveloper 11g (11.1.1.1.0) is released and it is really a big package (>900MB). But after downloading and installing there is no way to create SOA Suite projects or BPELs...
??
First check: Yes, this JDeveloper was released for developement of Oracle's Fusion Middleware components.
Second check: Is the SOA Suite included inside the Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1?

Ok, it is inlcuded in the documentation...
So let's search for the missing BPEL/SOA Suite components and voila:
http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E12839_01/integration.1111/e10275/intro.htm#BABEBBGD
Oracle SOA Suite is not automatically installed with Oracle JDeveloper. Before you can create SOA applications, SOA composite applications, and projects, you must download the Oracle SOA Suite extension for Oracle JDeveloper (file name soa-jdev-extension.zip) from the Oracle Technology Network and import it into JDeveloper.
So after some browsing here the link for this soa-jdev-extension.zip.
Just stop jdev, unzip it into <WHEREEVERYOUINSTALLEDIT>/jdeveloper und start once again.
Done.
Now you can create SOA project for 11g like shown in this posting.

Addendum (Thanks to Gerard Davison):
The better way of doing this is to add
http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/jdev/101/update/fmw_products.xml
to the list of update centers under check for update. That way JDeveloper will tell you when new versions are available.

  1. Hi,

    Actually this isn't quite correct, and you might end up with a semi broken install.

    Instead go Help->Check for updates you will notice that the URL you gave above is listed in the available update centers. If you press next SOA will be listed as one of the JDeveloper extensions you can install.

    I will try to get the documentation fixed,

  2. I am not sure if that works. It just takes you to the general JDev download page. Which link to click to get the SOA Suite?

    Also Checking updated from Help does not give BPEL process. I am using 11g and use Oracle Fusion Middleware Products as search criteria and then use SOA component editor.

  3. Hi,
    i think they reorganized their webpages.
    Have you tried:
    http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/jdev/index-099997.html
    or
    http://www.oracle.com/ocom/groups/public/@otn/documents/webcontent/156082.xml

  4. Hi
    Thanks a lot for the reply.

    As you said they have re-organized. For someone who was facing issues like me this is the how to Download SOA Suite after installtion 11G JDev.
    Now one can directly go to:
    "http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/jdev/downloads/index.html"
    to download the JDevloper Extentions. Just browse for extentions on this page. And download the SOA composite file corresponding to the JDev version.

    Open JDev and go to Help->Check for Updates-> click on next and chose "Install from Local file". Locate the zip file and follow the instructions on screen. Thats it.

    Satya
