Basically we must obtain a list of sca_ resources deployed in our servers, some of them are clusters, although some use different IP/Ports the tool keeps the same.

The main document can be found here in the Oracle webiste.  Basically, there are two main functions to achieve this task:

  • sca_listDeployedComposites()
  • sca_listCompositesInPartition()

In order to use them you must use the weblogic scripting tool from the Oracle home:

  • <MIDDLEWARE_HOME>/soa/common/bin/

If you use the from Weblogic, OSB or oracle_common you’ll receive the next error:

wls:/offline> sca_listCompositesInPartition
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "<console>", line 1, in ?
NameError: sca_listCompositesInPartition

Just because this custom functions are not available on those installations.

If you have a cluster, use the IP/PORT of one of your managed servers otherwise you’ll receive the error:

wls:/soa_domain/serverConfig> sca_listDeployedComposites('<HOSTNAME>','<PORT>','<USERNAME>','<PASSWORD>')
host = <HOSTNAME>
port = <PORT>
user = <USERNAME>
partition = My_partition
Connecting to JMX Server at host: <HOSTNAME> port <PORT>

Or this error:

Cannot find composite lifecycle mbean.

Usage: you should connect to your domain and execute the function like this:

wls:/offline> connect('<USERNAME>','<PASSWORD>','<T3://IP/PORT>')

#or list all by partition:


I’ve written an script to perform the task in different domains. The script must be run in this way:

<MIDDLEWARE_HOME>/soa/common/bin/ <ENV> <DOMAIN>
# miguel.ortiz 
# List SOA Composites
import sys,os,re

environment = sys.argv[1]
domain = sys.argv[2]
hostUser = 'READONLY_USER'
hostPass = 'read_only_pass'

# you need to provide two parameters, environment and domain
if environment == '' or domain == '' :
        print 'este script requiere (2) parametros, Ambiente y Dominio'

# if the environment is QAM
if environment == 'QAM' :

        hostIP = '172.x.x.x'

        if domain == 'SYNC':
                hostPort = '8001'
        if domain == 'ASYNC':
                hostPort = '8002'
        if domain == 'RSYNC':
                hostPort = '8003'

# If my environment is Production
if environment == 'PROD' :

        hostIP = '172.x.x.x'

        if domain == 'SYNC':
                hostPort = '8001'
        if domain == 'ASYNC':
                hostPort = '8002'
        if domain == 'RSYNC':
                hostPort = '8003'

# Connect to the host
connect( hostUser , hostPass , 't3://' + hostIP + ':' + hostPort )

# Redirect the standard output to get a clear result
old_stdout = sys.stdout
sys.stdout = open('file', 'w')
sca_listDeployedComposites( hostIP , hostPort , hostUser , hostPass)
sys.stdout = old_stdout

file = open('file', 'r')

# parse the file to get only the composites and versions

for line in file :
        if re.match(r'^[0-9]', line) :
                line = line.replace('partition=','')
                line = line.replace(',','')
                line = line.split(' ')
                new = line[1:3]
                print new
