Applies to:

Oracle SOA Suite - Version to [Release 11gR1 to 12c]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
SOA managed server is front ended bu Oracle HTTP Server.
HTTP Server module mod_weblogic is used to transfer http requests from Oracle HTTP Server to weblogic managed server.
Parameter Timeout is set to 1800 in httpd.conf which is sufficiently larger than the value of 5 minutes(300 seconds) after which the issue appears.


If the composite instance completes in less than 5 minutes , the HTTP-503 message is not displayed.

For any composite taking longer than 5 minutes to complete ,the composite completes successfully as can be confirmed from Enterprise Manager (EM) page and audit trail. However, the HTTP-503 error occurs for any composite that takes longer than 5 minutes to complete.
