|Oracle® Collaboration Suite Upgrade Guide
10g Release 1 (10.1.1) for hp-ux PA-RISC (64-bit), Linux x86 and Solaris Operating Environment (SPARC)
Part Number B14490-03
The tier of Oracle Collaboration Suite that runs the server applications that provide specific functionality to end users. The term "Applications tier" replaces the term "middle tier" that was used in previous releases. Each Applications tier corresponds to an instance of Oracle Application Server.
See also Oracle Collaboration Suite Applications.
The tier of Oracle Collaboration Suite that consists of the end-user applications that reside on client devices, such as desktops, laptops, wireless phones, and PDAs.
See also Oracle Collaboration Suite Applications.
An Oracle Collaboration Suite information storage database (an Oracle9i Database) that was upgraded out-of-place to Oracle Database 10g and patched to release 10.1.0.4. This database is not recognized by the Oracle Universal Installer as an Oracle Collaboration Suite database. You do not need to upgrade this database but instead use the Oracle Universal Installer to enable it as an Oracle Collaboration Suite Database.
An interactive tool started by the Oracle Universal Installer when you upgrade an existing Oracle Collaboration Suite information storage database. It steps you through the upgrade process and configures the database for the new Oracle Database 10g release. The Database Upgrade Assistant automates the upgrade process by performing all of the tasks normally performed manually. The Database Upgrade Assistant makes appropriate recommendations for configuration options such as tablespaces and redo logs. You can then act on these recommendations.
An upgraded Oracle home where an Oracle Collaboration Suite 10g Release 1 (10.1.1) component is installed.
An Oracle9iAS Infrastructure where the Oracle Identity Management components are distributed across different Oracle homes. An Oracle9iAS Infrastructure configured with Oracle Internet Directory and Oracle9iAS Metadata Repository is installed in an Oracle home on one system. Another Oracle9iAS Infrastructure configured with Oracle9iAS Single Sign-On and Oracle9iAS Metadata Repository is installed in an Oracle home on a different system.
See also non-distributed Oracle9iAS Infrastructure.
An Oracle9iAS Infrastructure configuration where you assign one or more middle tier components to their own Oracle9iAS Metadata Repository. You create this configuration by installing a distributed or non-distributed Oracle9iAS Infrastructure and then, on a separate system, installing one or more additional Oracle9iAS Infrastructures with only the Oracle9iAS Metadata Repository configured. You then install an Oracle Collaboration Suite middle tier and connect to the second Oracle9iAS Metadata Repository.
The tier of Oracle Collaboration Suite that consists of the components that provide services, such as identity management and metadata storage, for the Applications tier. Components of the Infrastructure tier include Oracle Collaboration Suite Database and Oracle Identity Management.
See also Oracle Collaboration Suite Infrastructure.
The process of upgrading an Oracle Collaboration Suite component by overwriting existing files, rather than creating copies or new versions of them. For example, datafiles are modified in-place as part of the upgrade process.
See also out-of-place upgrade.
An Oracle9iAS Infrastructure where Oracle Internet Directory, Oracle9iAS Single Sign-On and Oracle9iAS Metadata Repository are configured in a single Oracle home.
See also distributed Oracle9iAS Infrastructure.
A tool that upgrades some of the Oracle9iAS component schemas in the Oracle9iAS Metadata Repository to Oracle Application Server Metadata Repository. The schemas related to Oracle Identity Management are upgraded as part of the Oracle9iAS Infrastructure upgrade while some schemas do not require any modification. The OracleAS Metadata Repository Upgrade Assistant performs an in-place upgrade.
Oracle Collaboration Suite
An integrated suite of software applications to enable communication, messaging, and content sharing in an enterprise environment. At an architectural level, it includes three tiers: an Applications tier, which consists of server applications that provide the basic functionality, a Client tier, which consists of applications on desktops, laptops, and wireless devices, and an Infrastructure tier, which provides centralized services, such as identity management and metadata storage, for the applications.
Oracle Collaboration Suite Applications
The applications that make up Oracle Collaboration Suite, namely: Oracle Calendar Oracle Collaboration Suite Search Oracle Content Services Oracle Discussions Oracle Mail Oracle Mobile Collaboration Oracle Real-Time Collaboration Oracle Voicemail & Fax Oracle Workspaces Each of the preceding applications is a component of Oracle Collaboration Suite Applications. These applications rely on the services provided by the Infrastructure tier.
See also Applications tier.
Oracle Collaboration Suite Database
The default database included with Oracle Collaboration Suite to hold application data and metadata. The Oracle Collaboration Suite Database is part of the Oracle Collaboration Suite Infrastructure.
Oracle Collaboration Suite Infrastructure
The underlying components that support Oracle Collaboration Suite and provide centralized product metadata and security services, configuration information, and data repositories for Oracle Collaboration Suite Applications. Oracle Collaboration Suite Infrastructure uses and builds on OracleAS Infrastructure. It includes the Oracle Collaboration Suite Database and Oracle Identity Management.
See also Infrastructure tier.
An interactive tool started by the Oracle Universal Installer when you upgrade an existing Oracle Collaboration Suite middle tier Oracle home. It steps you through the upgrade process and and automates the upgrade process by performing all of the tasks normally performed manually, such as copying configuration information from the source Oracle home to the destination Oracle home.
Oracle Identity Management
An integrated set of components that provide distributed security to Oracle products and make it possible to centrally and securely manage enterprise identities and their access to applications in the enterprise. It includes the following components: Oracle Internet Directory, Oracle Directory Integration and Provisioning, Oracle Delegated Administration Services, OracleAS Single Sign-On, and Oracle Application Server Certificate Authority.
A Java-based graphical user interface application that enables you to install Oracle components from a CD, multiple CDs, or the Web. It is used to start the Oracle Collaboration Suite upgrade process. If you select a product and installation type that is already installed on the same system, then if offers you the option of upgrading that component. If you choose to upgrade, then it installs a Oracle Collaboration Suite 10g Release 1 (10.1.1) in a new Oracle home and starts the appropriate upgrade assistant to automate the process of configuring the new Oracle home.
The process of upgrading an Oracle Collaboration Suite component by installing a new version of the product in a different Oracle home than the existing component. In this type of upgrade, files in the source Oracle home are not modified. Files in the destination Oracle home may be modified with values from files in the source Oracle home.
See also in-place upgrade.
The process of upgrading a middle tier Oracle home without stopping the applications configured in other middle tier Oracle homes.
The process of upgrading where after each phase of the upgrade is completed, the entire Oracle Collaboration Suite environment works as it did before the upgrade began, even though different components are at different versions. Oracle Collaboration Suite supports one order of upgrade that allows for a staged upgrade: Oracle9iAS Infrastructure, Oracle Collaboration Suite information storage database, Oracle Collaboration Suite middle tiers and Oracle9iAS Metadata Repository.
