This document contains the following sections:


Notes:

If you are running your Oracle Fusion Middleware software on a third-party application server, such as IBM WebSphere Application Server, then refer to the certification information on OTN to determine the required version of the third-party software required for this Oracle Fusion Middleware release.

You can then refer to the third-party application server documentation for instructions on how to upgrade or patch your third-party software.


1 Task 1: Review and Make Note of Your Operating System Capabilities (32-bit or 64-bit)

Before you download any Oracle Fusion Middleware software, review your existing environment and determine your specific operating system versions, including whether you are using 32-bit or 64-bit systems.

Many Oracle products provide specific 32-bit and 64-bit downloads. As a result, it is important to make note of your specific operating system requirements before starting any downloads.

2 Task 2: Review the Certification, System Requirements, and Interoperability Information

Review the following documents to be sure that the Oracle Fusion Middleware software you want to download is supported on your existing software and hardware.


Notes:

When checking the certification, system requirements, and interoperability information, be sure to check specifically for any 32-bit or 64-bit system requirements. It is important for you to download software specifically designed for the 32-bit or 64-bit environment, explicitly.

3 Task 3: Understand the Types of Oracle Fusion Middleware Installers Available in This Release

Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.8.0) Oracle WebCenter Portal and Oracle WebCenter Content installers installers are full installers that can also function as update installers. You can use them to update an existing 11g Release 1 Oracle home, or you can use them to install a new, complete Oracle home.

For a high-level summary of the steps required for each of these starting points, see "Understanding Your Installation Starting Point" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Planning Guide.

For a list of the items you must download, based on your starting point, see Table 2.

5.1 Downloading the Required Database Software

Most of the Oracle Fusion Middleware products require a database that can store the required schemas. The schemas as a whole are referred to as the Oracle Fusion Middleware Metadata Repository.

For a complete list of the databases that are certified for use with Oracle Fusion Middleware and a list of required patches that must be applied to each supported database version, refer to Oracle Fusion Middleware Supported Configurations on the Oracle Technology Network (OTN). Some Oracle Fusion Middleware products support third-party database software, as well as Oracle database software.

Note that some of the supported databases require additional patches to be applied before you can use them with Oracle Fusion Middleware. For more information, see System Requirements and Specifications, which is available on OTN.

5.2 Downloading the Oracle Fusion Middleware Repository Creation Utility

You use the Oracle Fusion Middleware Repository Creation Utility to install the database schemas that are required by specific Oracle Fusion Middleware products.
