This chapter provides a high level description of the process of installing and configuring Oracle Communications Converged Application Server. Subsequent chapters describe the steps in detail.
Installing Converged Application Server is a multi-step process that includes planning the hardware and network setup; installing database software; installing the Converged Application Server software, which includes WebLogic Server, and can include a Java Development Kit (JDK); configuring the Converged Application Server (WebLogic) domain, and other post-installation tasks.
Converged Application Server is built on Oracle WebLogic Server Release 11g Release 1. The procedures for installing Converged Application Server are similar to the procedures for installing WebLogic Server. This document describes information specific to Converged Application Server. For complete system planning information and installation instructions, refer to the WebLogic Server documentation.
The Converged Application Server installation should be performed by qualified personnel. You must be familiar with Oracle WebLogic Server and the operating system on which you are installing the software. You should be experienced with installing Java-related packages. It is recommended that the installation and configuration of the Oracle or MySQL database be performed by an experienced database administrator.
Follow these guidelines:
As you install each component; for example, the Oracle database and Converged Application Server, verify that the component installed successfully before continuing the installation process.
Pay close attention to the system requirements. Before you begin installing the software, make sure your system has the required base software. In addition, make sure that you know all of the required configuration values, such as host names and port numbers.
As you create new configuration values, write them down. In some cases, you might need to re-enter configuration values later in the procedure.
Before you can install Converged Application Server, you must gather some information about your system and decide on the directories in which to install the software. You need to know:
The network names or IP addresses of the machines on which you are going to install Converged Application Server.
The directory on each machine which will serve as your MW_Home directory. This directory serves as a repository for common files that are used by Converged Application Server products installed on the same machine, such as WebLogic Server and Java Development Kit.
The files in the MW_Home directory are essential to ensuring that software operates correctly on your system. They:
Facilitate checking of cross-product dependencies during installation
Facilitate Service Pack installation
The directories on each machine which will serve as your product installation directories. You will need to provide directories in which to install Converged Application Server and WebLogic Server software. By default, these are subdirectories of MW_Home. We refer to these directories as CAS_Home and WL_Home.
If you are going to install the Converged Application Server Service Creation Environment, the Eclipse Plug-in installation directory.
A password for the Administrative User. The password must have a minimum of eight characters, at least one of which is non-alphabetic.
Converged Application Server has been tested to run on specific hardware and software platforms. Supported configurations are outlined in detail in Chapter 2, "System Requirements." Unless your installation has been specified differently in cooperation with Oracle, only these configurations are supported.
If you are upgrading from a previous version of Converged Application Server, you need to perform the upgrade tasks.
The Converged Application Server installation program installs the following products:
Oracle Communications Converged Application Server
The installation program also allows you to selectively install one or more subcomponents of each of these product offerings. In addition, depending on your operating system platform, the installation program can also install the JRockit or Sun JDK.
In general, command syntax examples in this document are only provided for the UNIX operating system. If you are installing the Converged Application Server software on the Windows operating system, it is assumed that you are able to translate the UNIX examples to the equivalent commands and directory paths for Windows.
