This SIG meeting will be covering the recent SOA 12c release to introduce delegates to major new features and enhancements and provide guidance on upgrading to SOA 12c. The day will be split into two sections:

1. Technology and Feature Review (Morning)
2. Upgrade Guides and Hands-on Lab (Afternoon)

Section 1 – Technology and Feature review
This section will start with a “Big Picture Overview” to outline major high level technology changes in SOA 12c as well as showing some demos. Key topics for administrators and architects will then be covered in more detail, including (to be confirmed):
• Installation (including new Fusion Middleware Infrastructure installer)
• The tighter integration of Service Bus into SOA Suite
• The new Managed File Transfer option
• Fusion Middleware Control improvements specifically for SOA

Section 2 – Upgrade Guides and Hands on Lab
This section will start with a presentation about the SOA 11g to 12c upgrade procedure and then proceed to a “Hands-on Lab” with delegates working on their own laptop, or in groups, to run through a real SOA 12c upgrade including migration of active composite instances. Delegates will be able to review, explore and discuss the SOA 12c upgrade and features throughout the lab with other delegates, Oracle speakers and committee members.

To conclude the SIG meeting there will be a short session to share experiences of the upgrade lab and discuss further actions amongst the entire group.
