3 Post-Installation Steps

This chapter describes the post-installation steps that you must perform after installing Oracle Enterprise Repository.

This chapter contains the following sections:

3.1 Configure Your Application Server

Your application server may require additional configuration before you can start using the product.

3.1.1 WebLogic Server Installations

The following sections provide post-installation information when using WebLogic Server as your application server.

3.1.1.1 Run WebLogic Server Domain Configuration Wizard

The Oracle Enterprise Repository is distributed as part of a WLS Domain template.This domain template allows Oracle Enterprise Repository to extend an existing domain or be a separate domain entirely (Default).

The Oracle Enterprise Repository domain template is designed to allow a quick installation of the Oracle Enterprise Repository application by supplying minimum configuration details. When the domain template is created using the defaults within the template, an administration server and a single managed server (oer_server1) are created. The managed server contains the Oracle Enterprise Repository Web application deployment within and is created in the directories supplied to the configuration panel, which had prompted for the domain name.

The default port used by the administration server is the WLS default of 7001. The Oracle Enterprise Repository Managed Server has a default port value that had been supplied to the Oracle Enterprise Repository installer (7101 by default). The Oracle Enterprise Repository Managed Server also listens to the network interface that is associated with the fully qualified host name also supplied to the Oracle Enterprise Repository installation program.

Creating WebLogic Domains Using the Configuration Wizard

    If the domain being extended already contains a machine, Oracle Enterprise Repository must be configured to use the existing machine and the oer_machine1 entry should be removed. Otherwise, the oer_machine1 should remain as defined. This example assumes that an existing machine named soa_machine1 already exists in this domain.

  11. Click Next. The Assign Servers to Machines page is displayed, as shown in Figure 3-10.

    Figure 3-10 Assign Servers to Machines

    Surrounding text describes Figure 3-10 .
  12. Select oer_server1 in the Server list and click the right-arrow button. The oer_server1 should be related to either the existing machine within the domain, or to the oer_machine1, if no machine had existed within this domain before extending it with the Oracle Enterprise Repository application template.

  13. Click Next. The Target Deployments to Clusters or Servers page is displayed.

    After configuring these environments you can extend the existing domain.

3.1.1.2 Set WebLogic Server Environment Parameters

When starting the servers of the domain containing Oracle Enterprise Repository, an additional domain configuration file is used to define environment variables and WebLogic Server operational behavior. This file is found within the $OER_DOMAIN/bin/setOERDomainEnv.sh or *.cmd files.

Please review the default JVM parameters being supplied within this file to ensure that these are in-line with your corporate policies and supported character set of your locale.

If this Oracle Enterprise Repository installation runs within an SSL enabled environment, then the addition of the following parameter to the cookie-secure=true parameter to the session-descriptor element within the weblogic.xml file.

3.1.2 WebSphere Installations

The following sections provide information for post-installation procedures required to complete your installation of Oracle Enterprise Repository.

3.1.2.1 Deploying the Oracle Enterprise Repository Application

Once the installer has completed, you have a WebSphere directory, such as ORACLE_HOME/repositoryXXX/websphere. This directory contains all of the properties files that configure the Oracle Enterprise Repository instance appropriately once it is deployed, as well as the oer.ear file and a copy of the JDBC Drivers that had been used to generate the database during the install process.

Use the following steps to deploy Oracle Enterprise Repository 11g on WebSphere:

  1. Create a ORACLE_HOME, such as /opt/Oracle, on the target application server. The Oracle Enterprise Repository installation program prompts you to use an existing ORACLE_HOME if one exists, otherwise it enables you to create a directory.

    The Oracle Enterprise Repository installation application deposits the WebSphere deployable application and the appropriate properties files into the ORACLE_HOME/repositoryXXX/websphere directory. This recommendation ensures that the Oracle Enterprise Repository application has a consistent driver that should not be effected by outside changes to the WebSphere or other library environment.

  2. As a recommended best practice, copy the JDBC Driver JAR file(s) and all properties files from the ORACLE_HOME/repositoryXXX/websphere directory. This recommendation ensures that the Oracle Enterprise Repository application has a consistent driver that should not be effected by outside changes to the WebSphere or other library environment.

  3. Deploy the oer.ear file in the manner most appropriate for your deployment server.

    Note:

    Do not start the application as there are additional configuration steps that must be performed before the application is considered fully deployed.
  4. Modify the generic JVM parameters.

    Note:

    These installation instructions assume the use of the WebSphere Administration Console. All instructions are relative to the links leading to the appropriate pages within this management tool.
    1. Open the Servers, Application Servers, myserver, Java and Process Management, Process Definition, Java Virtual Machine page.

    2. Add the following parameters to the Generic JVM Parameters property:

      *) Unicode compatibility – be sure to set the default client encoding appropriately. Depending on your locale, this may be reasonable: -Dclient.encoding.override=UTF-8

      *) Turn off strict code verification: -Xverify:none

      *) To prevent XLST transformations in the diagnostic page and the metadata viewer from failing in your Web browser, add a default implementation for DTMConfiguration: -Dorg.apache.xml.dtm.DTMManager=org.apache.xml.dtm.ref.DTMManagerDefault

  5. Modify the Oracle Enterprise Repository application module class load order:

    1. Enter the WebSphere Integrated Solutions Console.

    2. Click Applications, Enterprise Applications.

    3. Click the deployed Oracle Enterprise Repository application.

    4. Click the Manage Modules link.

    5. Click the oer-app.war module.

    6. Change the Class load order to Classes loaded from application class loader first (labeled as “Parent last” in version 6.0 and earlier).

    7. Click Apply.

    8. Click the oer-web.war module.

    9. Change the Class load order to Classes loaded from application class loader first (labeled as "Parent last" in version 6.0 and earlier).

    10. Click Apply.

    11. Click Save directly to the master configuration link to commit your changes to the master configuration.

  6. Create a shared library from within the Oracle Enterprise Repository application and associate it with the application:

    1. On the Applications, Enterprise Applications, OER, Shared Library References page, select the oer-app.war module and then click Reference Shared Library.

    2. Click New.

    3. Select a scope for the shared library that is appropriate for your WebSphere application environment.

    4. Assign a meaningful Name to the shared library. Description is optional.

    5. In the classpath field, enter the Oracle Enterprise Repository 11g directory, such as ORACLE_HOME/repositoryXXX/websphere. This directory contains all of the properties files for the Oracle Enterprise Repository instance.

    6. On a separate line within the classpath field, enter the absolute path of each JDBC driver JAR files within the ORACLE_HOME directory. If you have more than one file, add only one file per line.

    7. Select the new library in the Available list and use the right-facing arrow (>>) button to select that library for use with the oer-app.war application.

    8. Click OK to continue.

    9. Click Save directly to the master configuration link to commit your changes to the master configuration.

  7. Restart WebSphere.

  8. Start the Oracle Enterprise Repository application.

  9. After starting up Oracle Enterprise Repository, enable and set the following Systems Setting property to true for SSL support and also to avoid an SSLContext error on the Run Active Diagnostic page.

    cmee.ssl.force-sun-provider = true

3.1.2.2 Change the Server Classloader Order for XLST

To prevent issues with XSLT Transformation, use the following steps to change the classloader order in your WebSphere installation:

  1. Log in to the WebSphere Administrative Console.

  2. Click the Server, Application Server, server link.

  3. Select the Configuration tab.

  4. Select the option for Parallel start.

  5. Change the Access to internal server classes to Allow.

  6. Change Server Specific Application Settings, Classloader Policy to Single.

  7. Change the Server Specific Application Settings, Class loading mode to Parent First.

  8. Click Save directly to the master configuration link to commit your changes to the master configuration.

3.2 Install Java Web Start

Java Web Start is a browser plug-in that runs files with JNLP extensions. Java Web Start must be available on the client to use Oracle Enterprise Repository's Asset Editor, Type Manager, Navigator Applet, Browse Tree applet and the Import/Export utility.

3.2.1 Download and Install Java Web Start

To download and install Java Web Start, perform the following steps:

  1. Download Java Web Start from the following link: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/index.html

  2. When the download is complete, install Java Web Start.

  3. When installation is complete, open the Windows Control Panel.

  4. Open the Java plug-in.

  5. Click the browser tab and check the appropriate browser(s) with which to use the Java Web start application. This is rquired for proper Asset Editor functionality.

  6. Click the Advanced tab.

  7. Select the appropriate SUN Java JRE version for use with the installed version of Oracle Enterprise Repository.

  8. Close and re-open all instances of the Internet Explorer or FireFox browsers.

  9. Navigate to the Oracle Enterprise Repository instance.

  10. Click Edit/Manage Assets on the Oracle Enterprise Repository Assets screen.

    A security warning opens. This occurs only during the first launch of the Asset Editor.

  11. Click Start.

    Java Web Start installs and the Asset Editor opens.

For UNIX/Linux workstations, use the following instructions to associate Java Web Start with the JNLP file type (assuming the use of Firefox/Mozilla based browsers):

  1. Download Java Web Start (as a part of the Java Runtime Environment) from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/index.html.

  2. Install Java Runtime Environment as appropriate for your platform.

  3. When installation is completed, open Mozilla Firefox.

  4. Click the Edit menu, and then select Preferences. The Preferences dialog is displayed.

  5. Search for an existing entry for JNLP files. If it does not already exist in the list, then add this file type.

  6. Choose the JRE's WebStart application binary to associate with the JNLP file type: <JRE_HOME>/bin/javaw.

  7. Save changes to browser options.

  8. Navigate to the Oracle Enterprise Repository instance.

  9. Click Edit/Manage Assets in the Oracle Enterprise Repository Assets screen. A security warning is displayed, which occurs only during the first launch of the Asset Editor.

  10. Click Start. The Java Web Start is installed and the Asset Editor opens.

3.2.2 Troubleshooting Java Web Start

Oracle Enterprise Repository employs a browser MIME-type support checking process that is executed when the Edit/Manage Assets (Assets screen) and Edit (asset detail display) links are generated. This process inspects the client browser to determine if there is a registered handler for a JNLP file (which should launch Java Web Start). If this process fails or returns no results, the link HREF target points to the oer-web/web start/launch.htm page.

The browser-supported mime type determines which client installed application would be presented as the target of the Edit/Manage Assets and Edit links. Java Web Start must be properly installed to work correctly with the operating system as the handler for JNLP files passed to the client browser.

The process of registering this mime type with the browser is normally handled during installation of the Java Web Start plug-in application. Certain corporate security measures or anti-Spyware applications may block this kind of change to the Windows Registry, as the improper installation and/or removal of the Java Web Start application, Java Run Time Environment or Java SDK if improperly registered within the Java plug-in applet within the Windows Control Panel.

The following instructions may help rectify the incorrect MIME type support, assuming that Java Web Start and an appropriate version of the SUN Java JRE are properly installed within the client computer system.

To manually set the file/MIME association within the Windows operating system using the Windows Explorer:

  1. Open the Tools Menu.

  2. Select Folder Options.

  3. Select the File Types tab.

  4. Scroll down to JNLP or create a JNLP file type.

  5. Associate the Java Web Start Application (located in the correct path if more than one JWS is installed) with the JNLP file extension.

  6. In the Windows Control Panel, add support (check the option) for Internet Explorer within the Java Plug-in console applet. This process should assign the JNLP file type to Java Web Start within the Windows operating system.

Install the JRE or SDK and ensure you have the following entries in your $HOME/.mailcap and $HOME/.mime.types or in the system-wide /etc/mime.types and /etc/mailcap files:

Note:

Ensure you use the recent version, starting with Java 1.4.2.
in .mime.types or /etc/mime.types:
type=application/x-java-jnlp-file desc="Java Web Start" exts="jnlp"
in .mailcap or /etc/mailcap:
application/x-java-jnlp-file; /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_16/jre/javaws/javaws %s
// Adjust the path above according to your local installation

Conversely, when Mozilla Firefox encounters a file with an unknown extension, it often prompts you to Open or Save. Choose the Open option and browse to the $JAVA_HOME/jre/bin/javaws file, and select the appropriate option, to perform this action for the JNLP file type. If a new JRE is required, then follow the instructions in the Section 3.2, "Install Java Web Start", to change the executable associated with the JNLP file type.

3.3 Configure Oracle Enterprise Repository Web Start on Linux

After you have successfully installed Oracle Enterprise Repository, you must configure your browser to install Oracle Enterprise Repository WebStart. The steps to configure Oracle Enterprise Repository WebStart are as follows:

Note:

For Linux, you only have a few options in browsers, and the default browser for the Linux installs is Mozilla Firefox.
  1. Install the Java Plugin and stop Mozilla Firefox.

  2. Locate the mozilla directory on your computer, for example, /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4 or /home/oracle/.mozilla.

  3. Open a command prompt and go to the mozilla directory on your computer, using the following command, for example:

    cd home/oracle/.mozilla
    
  4. Create the plugins directory, if it does not exist, using the following command:

    mkdir plugins
    
  5. Go to the plugins sub-directory under the Mozilla installation directory, as follows:

    cd plugins
    
  6. In the current directory, create a symbolic link to the Java ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so file type:

    ln -s /oracle/soa/mwhome_gov/jdk160_11/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

  7. Open Mozilla Firefox and test the following link:

    http://www.java.com/en/download/help/testvm.xml

  8. In Mozilla Firefox, click the Edit menu, and then select Preferences. The Preferences dialog is displayed.

  9. Click Applications. The Application page is displayed.

  10. In the Search field, enter JNLP. The JNLP is displayed.

  11. Select the displayed JNLP. The Action list gets activated.

  12. Click the Action list to point to the correct JWS installed (such as the one installed with WLS JDK's).

    Note:

    However, on 64 bit Linux, WLS comes with JRockit only. You have to manually download the 64 bit JDK to access the plugin.

3.4 Start Your Application Server and Log Into the Oracle Enterprise Repository Web-based Console

After configuring your application server, follow these steps to start your application server and log in to the Oracle Enterprise Repository Web-based console.

  1. Start your application server:

    WebLogic Server: navigate to the ORACLE_HOME\user_projects\domains\DOMAIN_NAME directory and, depending on your platform, double-click either the startWeblogic.cmd (Windows) or startWeblogic.sh (UNIX) file.

    On Windows, you have an Oracle WebLogic Server NodeManager service. This service should be set to 'Automatic' start mode. This service is required to allow the domain Administration Server (startWeblogic.sh or *.cmd) to start the Oracle Enterprise Repository managed server.

    Note:

    For instructions on starting standalone Tomcat and WebSphere application servers, see the documentation for those products.
  2. Log in to the Domain's Administration Server Console application (http://myserver.domainname.com:7001/console), and then select Environment -> Servers -> Control tab.

    Check the oer_server1 managed server, and then click the Start button to start the Oracle Enterprise Repository managed server.

  3. Point your browser to the Oracle Enterprise Repository application.

    For example: http://myserver.domainname.com:7101/oer/

  4. On the login screen, enter admin for the Username and Password. This is the default administrative account installed with Oracle Enterprise Repository. You are forced to change the default Administrator password on the first successful login to the Oracle Enterprise Repository Web application.You can change the default password through the Administration tab in Oracle Enterprise Repository at a later time.

    Note:

    If your organization requires a user name and password each time you log in to Oracle Enterprise Repository, clear the Enable Automatic Login option.
  5. Click Login.

    The Login Stats dialog displays a welcome message that includes the date and time of your login.

  6. Click Close.

    For more information about using the Oracle Enterprise Repository console, see the "Getting Started" section of the Oracle Fusion Middleware User Guide for Oracle Enterprise Repository.

3.5 Use the Oracle Enterprise Repository Diagnostics Testing Tool

The Diagnostics tool allows testing and troubleshooting of certain aspects of Oracle Enterprise Repository, including testing for:

The Oracle Enterprise Repository diagnostic tools are available only when using an application server JVM parameter for security reasons. To enable the Oracle Enterprise Repository diagnostics features, use the following parameter:

-DdiagPagesEnabled=true

This parameter can be added to the application server's environment in various ways. For WebLogic Server, edit the ORACLE_HOME/user_projects/DOMAIN_NAME/bin/setOERDomainEnv.sh or *.cmd file and uncomment the OER_DIAG_OPTION parameter in this file. Then, restart the Oracle Enterprise Repository managed server.

To launch the Diagnostics tool, navigate to the http://host_name/application_name/diag/index.jsp page of the Oracle Enterprise Repository console. For more information, see "Password Encryption" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Upgrade Guide for Oracle Enterprise Repository.

3.6 Import Oracle Enterprise Repository Solution Packs

Prior to importing the Oracle Enterprise Repository Policy Management solution pack, you need to enable the system settings for policy management to ensure that the policies are applied correctly.

For more information about the system settings that need to be enabled before importing the policy management solution pack, see "Enable the Policy Management System Settings" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Configuration Guide for Oracle Enterprise Repository.

Oracle bundles base sample data for users to help you get started using the Enterprise Repository. Additionally, depending upon the edition of Oracle Enterprise Repository that you purchased, you can also import supplemental Solution Packs. These supplemental Solution Packs are located with your installation under the ORACLE_HOME\repositoryXXX\core\tools\solutions folder. Table 3-1 describes the available Solution Packs for Oracle Enterprise Repository 11g:

Table 3-1 Oracle Enterprise Repository Solution Packs
