Review Upgrade Concepts in the Upgrade Planning Guide

The Oracle Fusion Middleware Upgrade Planning Guide provides a high-level overview of how to upgrade your entire Oracle Application Server environment to Oracle Fusion Middleware.

It includes compatibility information and instructions for upgrading any databases that support your middleware components.

Oracle Fusion Middleware Upgrade Planning Guide

Understand the upgrade Starting Points and 11g Topologies

Before starting your upgrade, you should be familiar with the new features, supported started points, and recommended topologies for Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g.

Based this knowledge, you can later decide upon an 11g topology.

Chapter 3, "Supported Starting Points for Upgrading Oracle Identity Management"

Chapter 4, "Types of Environments for Oracle Identity Management"

Decide Upon an 11g Identity Management Topology

Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g introduces a new architecture based on Oracle WebLogic Server.

As a result, you should review your current Oracle Application Server topology and decide upon an equivalent Oracle Fusion Middleware topology before you begin the upgrade process.

Chapter 4, "Types of Environments for Oracle Identity Management"

If necessary, upgrade the Oracle Identity Management database to a supported database version

When you upgrade to Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g, the OracleAS Identity Management schemas are upgraded to 11g.

As a result, before you upgrade, ensure that the database that hosts the schemas is a supported version.
