Deploying OSM cartridge to clustered WebLogic


Customer have a OSM installation in their production environment on two nodes clustered WebLogic environment with Oracle RAC + shared disk (Oracle RAC is installed on separate two server nodes).

In their production environment, there is a Load Balancer (LB) on top of the clustered OSM and the LB receives requests issued by external systems and forwards them to one of clustered OSM based on preconfigured balancing rule.

The OSM is used for the critical production service and, under this circumstances the service provided by the OSM should never been interrupted even for a short time.

In this case, please let me know followings;

(1) what is the recommended procedures to deploy updated OSM cartridges onto the clustered OSM without interrupting the production service provided by the OSM.

We thought that, after trying the LB's forwarding route to one of OSM cluster, we will deploy the updated OSM cartridge to another side of OSM cluster only. After that we will change LS's routing to another node, then deploy OSM cartridge to rest of OSM cluster.

But it was unclear how the OSM cartridge could be deployed onto one of OSM clusters through Design Studio.

Please note that the newly deployed cartridge will be set as a "Default Cartridge" on the OSM.


(2) what is recommended procedures to apply OSM patches without interrupting the production service provided by the OSM.

Can any OSM patch be applied to OSM without interrupting the production service?
