This chapter provides an overview of the entire Business Transaction Management installation procedure.
Installation and initial configuration of the central servers:
Optional – Configure security for the central servers. You can also perform the security configuration for the monitors and observers at this time, if you wish.
Ensure that you have a supported web browser installed.
Configure the application servers that will host your central servers.
Set up the Business Transaction Management databases.
Optional – Configure the persistent storage directories.
Deploy the central servers.
If needed, remap Business Transaction Management user roles in your application server.
Perform initial configuration of Business Transaction Management.
After deploying the central servers, you configure them using the browser-based configuration wizard (see Initial Configuration of Business Transaction Management.).
Alternatively, you can use a command line script (see Chapter 16, "Scripted Configuration of Oracle Business Transaction Management."). For first-time configuration, however, we recommend that you use the browser-based wizard. The wizard produces an XML output file that can be used with the command line script for subsequent configurations.
Installation of monitors and configuration of the Observer Communication policy (see Chapter 8, "Installing Monitors."):
Optional – Configure security for the monitors if you haven't already done so.
Configure monitor-observer communication by way of the Observer Communication policy.
Installation of observers (see Chapter 9, "Installing Observers Overview"):
Optional – Configure security for the observers if you haven't already done so.
Install the observer libraries.
Configure the observers to locate a monitor.
