This post describes how to create an Oracle SOA Suite 11g Metadata Store (MDS) connection through JDeveloper 11g in which you can navigate the objects stored within the MDS.
Artifacts such as schemas, WSDLs, fault policies, and configuration files in SOA Suite 11g are now stored in the MDS (i.e., e.g., database) instead of the file system only as was previously the case in SOA Suite 10g.
1. Open JDeveloper 11g
2.Click on File -> New -> Connections
3. Choose Database Connection:
5. Go back and create a new connection, this time, choose SOA-MDS Connection:
Now, under the Resource Palette, you will notice the SOA-MDS connection under IDE Connections:
Referencing DVMs (through attributes or XSL)
Fault bindings in composite.xml
