It is recommended for Windows (and a requirement for UNIX and Linux) that an entry for the JDK 150_10 bin directory (for example: <bea_home>/JDK 150_10/bin) be included in your PATH environment variable setting before any other JDK bin directories.
By default, Data Services Studio (Eclipse 3.2.2) is available for installation with ALDSP 3.0 in the <bea_home>\aldsp_3.0\tools directory. If you are planning to use an Eclipse version that is not bundled with ALDSP, then you need to manually clean up the Eclipse configuration directory to avoid some known issues in Eclipse 3.2.2. All files except config.ini and files under .settings subdirectory should be deleted.
This section describes how to install ALDSP using the GUI mode on Microsoft Windows and supported UNIX and Linux-based platforms.
To install ALDSP in GUI mode:
Launch the GUI installer.
On Microsoft Windows-based systems:
Navigate to the folder to which you downloaded the ALDSP installer using Windows Explorer.
Double-click the installer executable file. For example:
On UNIX and Linux-based systems, do the following:
Verify that the console attached to the machine on which you are installing the software supports a Java-based GUI.
Open a command window, and change (cd) to the directory to which you downloaded the ALDSP installer file.
Start the installer in a new shell by entering the following:
where filename.bin is the name of the ALDSP installation program specific to your platform. For example, enter the following to start the Solaris version of the ALDSP installation program:
The installer application welcomes you to install ALDSP, as illustrated in Figure 2-2.

Click Next to begin the installation. The License Agreement appears.
Review the License Agreement, using the scroll bar to display the text. Choose Yes to accept, and click Next.
A screen appears enabling you to specify the BEA home directory, as illustrated in Figure 2-3.
Figure 2-3 Choose BEA Home Directory
The BEA home directory (<bea_home>) serves as the central support directory for all the BEA products installed on your system.
Specify the BEA home directory, and click Next.
You can choose a directory from the list, or type the directory name in the BEA Home Directory field. You must install ALDSP in the same home directory where you installed WebLogic Platform 9.2
A warning message is displayed under two conditions:
When a previously installed copy of ALDSP is found. In this case, you must uninstall ALDSP before installing the product again. (For details see Uninstalling ALDSP..)
When WebLogic Platform 9.2 is not found in the specified BEA home directory. Verify that the specified directory has a WebLogic Platform 9.2 installation. If not, exit the ALDSP installation and install WebLogic Platform 9.2 before proceeding.
A screen appears enabling you to choose the type of installation, as illustrated in Figure 2-4.
