Install the new User Interface for Oracle Case Management 11.1.1.7

For all Oracle BPM & Case Management users a new User Interface is available (see SOA Community Blog). Below I describe briefly how to install it on a BPM 11.1.1.7 environment.

To access the software please login to support.oracle.com and search for the following Patches:
  • Patch 17014142: SOA BUNDLE PATCH 11.1.1.7.1
  • Patch 17767877: CASE UI IN WORKSPACE

1) Read the README-files carefully and perform the following steps for both patches:

2) Set the ORACLE_HOME environment variable to SOA Home, eg:
export ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/middleware/Oracle_SOA1/
Validate the result with => echo $ORACLE_HOME
 

3) Add the appropriate OPatch to the system path, eg::
export PATH=$PATH:/u01/app/oracle/middleware/Oracle_SOA1/OPatch
Validate the result with => which opatch
 

4) Run OPatch to apply the patch
opatch apply

Repeat the steps for the oracle_common-Home. Patch 17767877 needs to be applied on the Jdeveloper ORACLE_HOME as well.

NOTE: YOU MUST APPLY THE SAME PATCH TO SOA AND oracle_common HOMEs AT THE SAME TIME. YOU CANNOT APPLY JUST ONE AS THIS WILL CAUSE UNPREDICTABLE BEHAVIOR.

Additionally make sure that you installed:
  • Patch 14526899
  • Patch 14791221

These two patches can be installed via Smart Update Utility. Start the tool under [MW_HOME]/utils/bsu, copy the extracted patches into [MW_HOME]/utils/bsu/cache_dir and apply the patches.

If you performed all steps successfully, you should now be able to access your case instances from BPM workspace. Have fun with it!

  1. Hi, Danilo.
    How are you?

    I just installed patch 1485949.1 which includes the Case Management UI, but after that the EURent sample stop working. The EURent was installed prior the patch and it was working perfectly, but after the patch, it just stopped working.

    Any suggestions?
    Thanx in advance

    best regards

  3. Also this: Caused by: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/chemistry/opencmis/server/support/TypeManager which could be pretty much the root of the problem. But as I mentioned, I just installed the bundle patch on top of my 11.1.1.7 installation.

  5. Hi,

    A helpful article on Installing the new User Interface for Oracle Case Management.
    An open source Business Process Management tool which enables developers to easily deploy business processes written using the WS-BPEL standard, and also serves as the business process management and hosting environment for your SOA, is wso2 Business Process Server(http://wso2.org/projects/bps).
    Powered by the Apache Orchestration Director Engine (ODE) BPEL engine, the WSO2 Business Process Server provides a complete web-based graphical console to deploy, manage and view processes.
