A compact domain is a developer domain consisting of a single administration server and in this post you will learn how to create it!
After the installation of SOA Suite 12c and required schemas, open a command prompt and go to ORACLE_HOME/soa/common/bin. Set the environment variable CONFIG_JVM_ARGS to -Dcom.oracle.cie.config.showProfile=true. This will activate the compact domain option in the configuration wizard.
cd ORACLE_HOME\soa\common\bin SET CONFIG_JVM_ARGS=-Dcom.oracle.cie.config.showProfile=true config.cmd
In the Configuration Type screen, select Create a new compact domain.
In the Templates screen, select all templates you need.
Click Next button four times.
In the Database Configuration Type screen, select RCU Data.
Click Next button four times and click Create to create the domain.
Click Next again and then click Finish.
Your developer domain was created.
