Atul Kumar says August 20, 2009

@ Elvedinbabic, I couldn’t find anything BEA specific for “SOA Business Strategy and Process” (just 1 page in BEA Domain Model for SOA). I am planning to buy online course and should be able to share some information from them in future.

Can you please mail me document [ atul @ onlineAppsDBA.com ] which can help others to understand SOA and specific to exam. I’ll then upload them to this website and share link with all those interested in “Oracle SOA Foundations, Adoption and Implementation certification for SOA Architects”

Alexander Al says September 14, 2009


have you taken this exam already?

Your blog is the only place in the Internet, where it is possible to find working links for proper documents.

Do you have any new materials about this exam or maybe you have some good ideas how to pass it.

Thanx a lot,

Atul Kumar says September 14, 2009

@ Alexander, Not yet I started with Online Self Study Trainings but as of now focusing on Oracle Weblogic System Administration Certification 1Z0-108

Ditch23 says September 23, 2009

I have been trying to get a copy of the mandatory reading material you have specified and unforunately the BEA download website no longer seems to be available. I have managed to find copies of the domain model and reference architecture whitepapers but not the SOa governance with BEA and Aqualogic paper. Do you know where I can get a copuy of this to read through or do you have a copy you could send me?

Ahmed says July 11, 2010


1. The 1Z0-114 is an ‘architect’ certification, so it is technology independent.

2. Effective 01-Oct-2010, the 1Z0-114 exam will be retired.
