2 Compatibility and Interoperability Between 10g and 11g Components

Compatibility and interoperability with Oracle Application Server 10g and Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g components varies by product area and version. This chapter describes common compatibility and interoperability considerations that you should review before installing or upgrading to Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g.

This chapter contains the following sections:

2.1 Oracle Application Server 10g With 11gR1 Components

There are cases where you need to run Oracle Application Server 10g software components with your Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g components. The following sections provide some specific compatibility issues and considerations between Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g and Oracle Application Server 10g:

2.1.1 Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Compatibility Matrix

Table 2-1 describes the compatibility of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g components with Oracle Application Server 10g components. Note that all references to Oracle Identity Management (IDM) 10g refer to both 10.1.2 and 10.1.4 releases of Oracle Identity Management components.

2.2 Oracle Application Server 10g Upgrade-Related Considerations

When you are upgrading your Oracle Application Server 10g environment to Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g, you will likely update one area of your environment at a time.

For example, you might upgrade the middle tiers in one department to Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g in order to support new Oracle SOA Suite features. At the same time, you might leave your company-wide Oracle Identity Management components at Oracle Application Server 10g.

For information about the Interoperability between the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g suites and the equivalent installation types available in Oracle Application Server 10g, see Table 2-1, "Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Compatibility Matrix".

The following sections describe some common compatibility issues that can arise during the upgrade process:

2.2.1 Oracle HTTP Server Interoperability

Table 2-2 describes the upgrade-related interoperability of Oracle HTTP Server with other Oracle Fusion Middleware components at the same patch level. For example, the Standalone Oracle HTTP Server 10.1.3 would be interoperable with ADF, SOA and WebCenter 10.1.3 as shown below.

This section provide answers to specific Oracle Identity Management Interoperability issues:

2.2.3.1 Interoperability of Oracle Internet Directory 11g and Single Sign-On 10g

Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) provides an upgrade path for Oracle Single Sign-On users. Specifically, you can upgrade your Oracle Single Sign-On environment to Oracle Access Manager 11g.

You can also continue to use your existing Oracle Single Sign-On 10g environment with your newer Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g components. However, after upgrading your Oracle Internet Directory (and Oracle Directory Integration Platform) instances to 11g, there are some post-upgrade tasks required in order for Oracle Single Sign-On 10g to work successfully with the upgraded Oracle Internet Directory instance.

For more information, follow the instructions for upgrading Oracle Internet Directory and Oracle Directory Integration Platform in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Upgrade Guide for Oracle Identity Management.

For additional information, see "Evaluating Single Sign-On Installations" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle Identity Management

2.2.3.2 Oracle Identity Management 10g Components in a Collocated Home

A collocated Oracle Identity Management 10g Oracle home contains all four of the primary Oracle Identity Management 10g components (Oracle Internet Directory, Oracle Directory Integration Platform, Oracle Single Sign-On, and Oracle Delegated Administration Services). However, you can upgrade only Oracle Internet Directory, Oracle Directory Integration Platform, and Oracle Single Sign-On to 11g.

For complete information about the required post-upgrade tasks for Oracle Internet Directory and Oracle Directory Integration Platform, see "Upgrading Your Oracle Internet Directory Environment" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Upgrade Guide for Oracle Identity Management.

2.2.3.3 Oracle Application Server 10g Dependencies on Oracle Identity Management 10g

Some of the components in Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2 (10.1.2) depend upon specific Oracle Identity Management 10g components. As a result, you should consider the following when you upgrade Oracle Identity Management or Oracle Portal, Forms, Reports, and Discoverer to Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g:

  • If you upgrade the Oracle Portal, Forms, Reports, and Discoverer middle tier components to 11g before you upgrade the associated Oracle Identity Management components, then there are no known interoperability restrictions.

  • If you upgrade the Oracle Identity Management components to 11g before you upgrade the Oracle Portal, Forms, Reports, and Discoverer components, then the only restriction to consider is when the Oracle Identity Management 10g components are in a collocated Oracle home. See Section 2.2.3.2, "Oracle Identity Management 10g Components in a Collocated Home".
