Upgrading an existing stage/production OSB 11g implementation to Service Bus 12c can be a massive job. It becomes an overwhelming task if it contains several clustered nodes and several OSB 11g projects that need to be imported to JDeveloper 12c.
Some of the pre-requisites for a successful migration are:
- Only a domain that is running 11.1.6 or 188.8.131.52 can be upgraded.
- A 64 bit JVM should be in place and running for the existing environment.
- The upgrade will fail if you are using Oracle XE database.
- The database charset must be AL32UTF8.
- The File Based Policy store is not supported. Migrate your domain to use either LDAP or Database OPSS Policy Store prior to migration.
- You cannot upgrade a domain with multiple products in 12c in an un-clustered managed servers using UMS.
