AIA 11g R1 (over SOASuite11.1.1.3) Installation Issues on Linux

I am putting down some of the issues that we had during the AIA installation on a linux box.

Issue#1 :- The AIA intallation failed at the Pre-Installtion step as it was unable to find the task definition for net/sf/antcontrib/ or net/sf/antcontrib/antlib.xml.

Error StackTrace

No taskdef found for net/sf/antcontrib/

Build failed

In the build files there will be this task definition which looks for this specific task file.

Ant build file- snippet

<taskdef resource="net/sf/antcontrib/">




<taskdef resource="net/sf/antcontrib/antlib.xml">





Copy the ant-contrib.jar from Middleware_HOME/modules/net.sf.antcontrib_1.1.0.0_1-0b2/lib to the ANT_HOME/lib folder .Then Retry, it should go through smoothly.It needs to be in the classpath so that these properties or xml files and dependent class files are available to the ant.

Issue#2 :- During the Deployment phase there are chances that initial ear deployment may time out. In case you face such an issue increase the timeout value in the server. Since time-out is coming in the ear deployment increase the time-out value at the weblogic domain level.

Error StackTrace

Timeout can be configure in 2 ways on Weblogic domain level .Either it can be done from the console or else from backend by editing the configuration file.

a) Edit the config.xml @ Middleware_home\user_projects\domains\SOADomain\config folder

XML Snippet –config.xml

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>

<domain xmlns=""











b) Configure the value from weblogic console

Select Services > JTA

Select JTA tab

Change the parameter: Timeout Seconds

That’s it for the day. Have fun. :)

Nice post, you saved me so much time........

I had another issue when installing (trying to install) AIA.
At the very last step, trying to deploy the application, I had a ClassNotFound exception on ADFApplicationLifecycleListener.
I copied all classes from /u01/oracle/mid11r2/oracle_common/modules/features/*.jar
into my DOMAIN/lib folder.
Restarted my domain, and everything worked fine

We tried AIAR1 over 11gPS2 , but it seems its only certified with 11gR1 PS1..

With patch 9717829, AIA 11g R1 is certified for PS2.
