2 Installing Oracle Service Bus 11g

This chapter explains how to install Oracle Service Bus. It includes the following topics:

2.1 Installation Instructions

This section contains instructions for installing Oracle Service Bus onto your system. The following topics are covered:

2.1.1 Obtaining the Software

See "Obtain the Oracle Fusion Middleware Software" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Planning Guide for information on where to obtain the software.

Select one of the download locations and download "Service Bus." This will be saved to your system as a .zip archive file.

After you download the archive file, unpack the archive file into a directory of your choice on the machine where you will be performing the installation.

2.1.2 Starting the Installer

To start the installer, go to the directory where you unpacked the archive file and switch to the Disk1 directory.

On UNIX operating systems:

cd unpacked_archive_directory/Disk1
./runInstaller -jreLoc JRE_LOCATION

On Windows operating systems:

cd unpacked_archive_directory\Disk1
setup.exe -jreLoc JRE_LOCATION

The installer requires the full path to the location of a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) on your system. When you installed Oracle WebLogic Server, a JRE was installed on your system in the jdk160_21 directory inside the Middleware home. You can use this location as the JRE_LOCATION to start the installer.

If no JRE location is specified, you will be prompted to provide the location of your JRE before the installer is started:

[> ./runInstaller 
Starting Oracle Universal Installer...
Checking if CPU speed is above 300 MHz.    Actual 2999 MHz    Passed

Checking swap space: must be greater than 512 MB.   Actual 4047 MB    Passed

Preparing to launch Oracle Universal Installer from /tmp/OraInstall2010-12-14_08-03-44AM. Please wait ...
Please specify JRE/JDK location ( Ex. /home/jre ), <location>/bin/java should exist :

Specify the absolute path to the JRE on your system before you continue.


If you are installing Oracle Service Bus on a 64-bit UNIX or Windows operating system with a 32-bit JDK, you must specify the JRE_LOCATION using the -jreLoc option from the command line. The option to provide your JRE_LOCATION at the prompt is not supported in such cases, and the installer will not start.

2.1.3 Installation Log Files

The installer writes logs files to the Oracle_Inventory_Location/log (on UNIX operating systems) or Oracle_Inventory_Location\logs (on Windows operating systems) directory. Refer to Section D.2, "Installation and Configuration Log Files" for more information about the log files and their contents.

2.1.4 Installation Screens and Instructions

Follow the instructions in Table 2-1 to install Oracle Service Bus.

If you need additional help with any of the installation screens, refer to Appendix B, "Oracle Service Bus Software Installation Screens" or click Help to access the online help.
