Multiple languages may be installed and deployed as part of Siebel Business Applications installation and configuration. This topic outlines three scenarios for deploying the software with more than one language, and identifies some of the requirements for and implications of each approach. This information is presented for your consideration when planning multilingual deployments.
Detailed information about many of the tasks identified in this topic and its subtopics are found in multiple parts of this document. For more information, see Siebel Global Deployment Guide, Siebel System Administration Guide, and other applicable documentation. See also General Requirements for Siebel Enterprise Server Installation and Configuration and other relevant topics.
NOTE: It is strongly recommended that the same set of language files be installed on each physical server. Doing so will help ensure maximum compatibility between physical servers, so the system can be reconfigured easily to meet ongoing requirements. Oracle only tests configurations where the same set of language files are installed on each physical server used in a single Siebel Enterprise.
If you include multiple languages with a Siebel Enterprise Server installation, you designate one language as the primary language to be used for server messages. The same primary language is typically also used for the Siebel Database, which cannot be changed after database installation.
When you configure each installed instance of Siebel Server and Siebel Web Server Extension (SWSE), you specify which languages to deploy, from among the installed languages. It is possible to deploy a subset of the installed languages. Which languages you deploy on a given server depends on the uses to which you will put that server.
On each Siebel Server, the set of deployed languages determines which language-specific components such as Application Object Managers (AOMs) are created on that server. It is recommended to deploy all languages installed in the enterprise and optionally to disable AOMs you do not require. See Configuring Siebel Enterprise Server and Related Components.
On each instance of SWSE, you must deploy the superset of all languages required by the AOMs that connect to it. It is recommended to deploy all languages installed in the enterprise. See Installing and Configuring the Siebel Web Server Extension.
In addition to software installation tasks, for each installed language besides the primary language, you must perform the following Siebel Database operations, using the Database Configuration Wizard. You perform these tasks after installing the Siebel Database. For more information about these tasks, see Configuring the Siebel Database.
In general, it is recommended to install the latest patch releases before you install the Siebel Database or add languages to the Siebel Database. For information specific to version 8.0.0.x fix pack releases, see the Siebel Maintenance Release Guide on My Oracle Support. See also About Installing Siebel Releases.
