5.4 Integrating the Product with Oracle Universal Installer

Each product installation directory is also an Oracle home, allowing additional product registration with the Oracle Central Inventory. The Central Inventory contains information about all installed Oracle products on the same host and can be managed by running the Oracle Universal Installer.

Note:

The Oracle home name in the examples is expected to be unique between all Oracle products installed on the same host and is obtained from the name of the default product installation directory by replacing dashes with underscores, removing dots in product version numbers, and attaching the name of the architecture.

The following examples assume that you have installed Oracle Universal Installer either directly or indirectly as part of another Oracle product. For more information on how to start the Oracle Universal Installer see:
