Connect to SOA Suite on EC2

If you’re not using elastic IP you have to configure WebLogic / SOA Suite running on EC2 to listen to external calls. A good example of such an external call would be: you trying to deploy a composite from the JDeveloper installation on your local PC. If you don’t configure this you’ll run into:

Error sending deployment request to server

java.net.ConnectException: Connection timed out: connect

To configure the External Listen Address log into the WebLogic Console.

  • Select EnvironmentServer
  • Click the server (AdminServer)
  • Click Advanced to show the advanced settings
  • Enter the External Listen Address
  • Restart WebLogic

It can be helpful to also edit your host file to save you from retyping the quite long EC2 host name over and over again.
