Section 3.6, "Oracle-Specific Database Guidelines for Oracle Business Analytics Warehouse," was updated to include new information about init.ora parameter template files.
Section 4.2, "High-Level Installation and Configuration Task List," was updated to reflect the high-level list of installation and configuration procedures for the current release.

Note: With this release, it is not necessary to download Hibernate libraries. Also, it is not necessary to install the Java JDK on the DAC Client or Server machines if you run the DAC installer, because the DAC installer installs it. If you install the DAC Server on UNIX, however, you need to install the Java JDK on the UNIX machine. (Oracle does not provide a DAC installer for UNIX.)
Section 4.6, "Installing Informatica PowerCenter," was updated to include instructions for installation and configuring Informatica PowerCenter version 8.6.
Section 4.9, "Installing the DAC Platform," was added. It provides instructions for using the DAC installer to install the DAC Client and Server on Windows and the DAC Server on Linux. It also includes instructions for installing the DAC on UNIX.
Note: As of the Oracle BI Applications release 7.9.6, DAC is no longer installed by the Oracle BI Applications installer.
Section 4.10, "Installing DAC Metadata Files," was added. DAC metadata files are installed by the Oracle BI Applications installer and must be copied to the machines hosting the DAC Client and Server.
Section 4.14.3, "Setting Physical Data Sources," was updated to include instructions specific to JD Edwards.
