Misc. items about MDS and JDEV

1. to publish to MDS from JDEV, check this:

remember: pay careful attention between "application" deployment and "project" deployment!

2. to delete from MDS, check this:

remember you can use wild card to delete.

3. when you create a SOA application, Jdev creates a ".adf" folder where your application .jws file resides. You can find your default adf-config.xml under the meta-inf of that folder. You can view it with a text editor directly, or you can open it with JDEV. With Jdev, you can expand "application resources" tab (default on the left, right below your "project" tab. Navigate to "descriptors -> adf meta-inf" and open adf-config.xml, then click "source" view to see the content.

There are two ways to store and access MDS data. Using DB via SOA server, or store locally in your file system.

In any event, by default, you may see something like

          <metadata-store-usage id="mstore-usage_1">
            <metadata-store class-name="oracle.mds.persistence.stores.file.FileMetadataStore">
              <property name="metadata-path"
              <property name="partition-name" value="seed"/>
be very careful, that if your JDEV is not installed under ${oracle.home}, then you won't be able to reference your local file MDS. So you know for sure where your JDEV is installed, you can find the absolute path to the "integration" folder, and replace "${oracle.home}/integration" with your absolute path (you may need to change "\" to "/" on windows.
