SDFC (Salesforce.Com) integration with Oracle Fusion Middleware and SOA SUITE

While on a recent assignment, a task assigned to MindTelligent team was to integrate SDFC ( services with Oracle Application 11i and R12 using Oracle SOA suite 11g and Fusion Middleware 10.3.3.  For composites, trying to access the Salesforce services deployed in, we need to configure the Weblogic Fusion Middleware to be able to access the services outside the firewall. Also, we need to add Salesforce certificates.

The first and foremost step is to configure the Weblogic/ Oracle SOA domain  to access remote Salesforce services.

For SOA composites deployed on Oracle 11g version, to consume web services the following changes need to be made to the on Linux  OR  setSOADomainEnv.cmd file. This section will discuss the Linux deployments only.

The can be found in the directory $WL_HOME/user_projects/domains/base_domain/bin.

The  EXTRA_JAVA_PROPERTIES variables needs to be modified as follows

EXTRA_JAVA_PROPERTIES="${EXTRA_JAVA_PROPERTIES} -Dhttps.proxySet=true -Dhttps.proxyPort=443 -Dhttp.nonProxyHosts=localhost.localdomain||"


https.proxyHost: Your proxy Host
https.proxyPort:   Your proxy port, 443 is the default port for https
http.nonProxyHosts: Your non proxy servers, the list can be separated with a "|"

The second most significant step is to install and configure the certificates

Download the certificates from and import the certificates using the
Java Keytool

keytool -importcert -alias -file  -keystore mykeysotre.jks

Configure the jks in the

After the changes have been made, restart the Admin Weblogic Server and Managed SOA Server.

  1. HI Harvinder,

    Thanks for this post of yours. if its feasible for you can you give steps in details

    1)which certificates are needed. is it ok if its only the client certificate is imported to Oracle SOA Suite.

    2) How to configure the Oracle SOA Suite such that it accepts the requests from Salesforce.

  2. Mannu. Please my response to your questions.
    1.) You will need the public certificate for the Please access the webservice via the browser https://....... and when you are redirected by the webservice, download the cert using the browser. Alternatively, please ask the salesforce support team to send you the "public" certificate.
    2.) Create a keystore, give it any name: myTrust.jks and copy this certificate in the MW_HOME/server/lib directory. On windows this is C:\OIAM\Middleware\wlserver_10.3\server\lib folder.

    3.) In the rectory $MW_HOME/user_projects/domain/base_domain/bin (Windows: C:\OIAM\Middleware\user_projects\domains\base_domain\bin) in the cmd/sh file, modify the line set EXTRA_JAVA_PROPERTIES=%EXTRA_JAVA_PROPERTIES% -Dsoa.archives.dir=%SOA_ORACLE_HOME%\soa -Dsoa.instance.home=%DOMAIN_HOME% -Dtangosol.coherence.clusteraddress= -Dtangosol.coherence.clusterport=9778 -Dtangosol.coherence.log=jdk -Dweblogic.transaction.blocking.commit=true -Dweblogic.transaction.blocking.rollback=true\server\lib\DemoTrust.jks to
    set EXTRA_JAVA_PROPERTIES=%EXTRA_JAVA_PROPERTIES% -Dsoa.archives.dir=%SOA_ORACLE_HOME%\soa -Dsoa.instance.home=%DOMAIN_HOME% -Dtangosol.coherence.clusteraddress= -Dtangosol.coherence.clusterport=9778 -Dtangosol.coherence.log=jdk -Dweblogic.transaction.blocking.commit=true -Dweblogic.transaction.blocking.rollback=true\server\lib\NewTrust.jks

  3. Hi Harvinder Can yu share information on Workday Integration using Oracle SOA Suite..?
    Really this will helps me a lot

    1. Kiran, Did you get this working? I have similar requirement, any input on this subject will help.
