In this article I’d like to explain how to share multiple instances of Oracle’s Pre-built Virtual Machine for SOA Suite and BPM Suite across different computers in your network. Three requirements we had to address:
- Call of external services like GeoNames (http://www.geonames.org/postal-codes/) from within the BPM Suite VM
- Connection to multiple BPM Suite VMs from Host (e.g. JDeveloper and Browser)
- Connection to multiple BPM Suite VMs from different developer computers in the network
- Share data between VMs and developer computers via FTP
The default options already support connections between host and client. However the target here was to address multiple independent VMs from different computers in the same network. I described the approach in my article on Inside BPM and SOA. Have fun!
