Map the Oracle ESB repository as a drive with Windows XP

The ESB in Oracle SOA Suite publishes its resources as a WebDAV repository. That means that it can be mapped as a Windows drive or mounted in Linux. This can be very useful as the ESB (intentionally) keeps all files when a service is deleted. They must be removed manually. With a network drive that becomes child’s play.

It should be possible to define a network drive as follows:

net use x: ""

That fails with:

System error 67 has occurred.

The same thing happens from the user interface in Windows Explorer. Fortunately there is a solution – add a network place instead. Select “Tools/Map Network Drive”. Click on the link “Sign up for online storage or connect to a network server”:

Click next until prompted for the address. Enter the host and port for the ESB server followed by “/esb/slide”:

Give the new network place a name. This will become the name of a folder where the repository can be found:

Finish the wizard. There will be a new folder present in “My Network Places”. It can be copied or moved somewhere else just like a normal folder. Expand it and voila – there are the ESB files.
