2 Installing Oracle WebCenter Content

This chapter explains how to install the Oracle WebCenter Content component of Oracle Fusion Middleware.

This chapter includes the following sections:

2.1 Preparing to Install

Before you install Oracle WebCenter Content, you need to verify that your system meets the installation requirements and set environment variables. If your system does not have an application server and Oracle Fusion Middleware installed, you need to install them and create a new Middleware home.

To provide accessibility on a Windows operating system, you can also install Java Access Bridge. For more information, see "Installing and Configuring Java Access Bridge" in the Oracle Java Access Bridge Installation and Application Developer's Guide at

http://docs.oracle.com/javase/accessbridge/2.0.2/toc.htm

2.1.1 Disabling the 8.3 File Naming Convention on a Windows Operating System

Before you install Oracle WebCenter Content on a Windows Operating System, you need to disable the 8.3 file naming convention (maximum 8-character file name and 3-character extension).

If the WebCenter Content weblayout directory is on a file system with 8.3 semantics, the legacy 16-bit 8.3 file names will conflict with revision labels and cause file loss.

To disable the 8.3 file naming convention on a Windows Operating System:

  1. Open the Windows Registry Editor (regedit), and go to the following key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control/FileSystem
    
  2. Set the value of the NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation key to 1.

  3. Restart the Windows operating system for the change to take effect.

2.1.2 Enabling Unicode Support

Your operating system configuration can influence the behavior of characters supported by Oracle WebCenter Content.

On a UNIX operating system, Oracle highly recommends that you enable Unicode support by setting the LANG and LC_ALL environment variables to a locale with the UTF-8 character set. This enables the operating system to process any character in Unicode. Web technologies are based on Unicode.

You can verify that the LANG and LC_ALL environment variables are set by typing the following two commands on a UNIX operating system:

  • echo $LANG

  • echo $LC_ALL

If the operating system is configured to use a non-UTF-8 encoding, Oracle WebCenter Content components may function in an unexpected way. For example, a non-ASCII file name can make the file inaccessible and cause an error. Oracle does not support problems caused by operating system constraints.

2.1.3 Reviewing System Requirements and Certification

Before performing any installation, you should read the system requirements and certification documents to ensure that your environment meets the minimum installation requirements for the products you are installing. Both of these documents are available on Oracle Technology Network (OTN), through these pages:

Notes:

  • For the 32-bit version of the product, the system on which you are installing must be a supported 32-bit system. Installing a 32-bit version of the product on a 64-bit system is not supported.

  • For a 64-bit Linux operating system, you should use the 32-bit Java Runtime Environment (JRE) on a client machine for the Imaging Advanced Viewer.

  • For the IBM JDK with Oracle WebCenter Content and WebSphere Application Server, certain functionality, such as the check for patches feature, will not work correctly unless the Java socket factories are changed. The IBM JRE has its own Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) socket factories. For more information, see "Changing Java Socket Factories in the IBM JDK" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Third-Party Application Server Guide.

2.1.4 Creating a Symbolic Link to the chmod Command on a Solaris System

Before installing Oracle WebCenter Content on a Solaris operating system, you need to create a symbolic link to the chmod command.

To create a symbolic link to the chmod command:

  1. Log in as the root user.

  2. Execute the following command as root:

    ln -s /usr/bin/chmod /usr/local/bin/chmod
    
  3. Log out, and then log back in with a different user name to start the installation.

    Running the installer as the root user is not supported.

2.1.5 Providing the Location of the Inventory Directory on a UNIX System

If you are installing on a UNIX operating system, and if this is the first time any Oracle product is being installed on your system with the Oracle Universal Installer, you will be asked to provide the location of the inventory directory. This is where the installer will set up subdirectories and maintain inventory data for each Oracle product that is installed on the machine.

To provide the location of the inventory directory on a UNIX system:

  1. On the Specify Inventory Directory screen, specify the location of the inventory directory.

    This screen appears only on a UNIX operating system, for the first installation by Oracle Universal Installer. The installer will use the inventory directory to keep track of all Oracle products installed on the machine.

  2. Take the action requested in the Inventory Location Confirmation dialog box.

    This dialog box asks you to run the following script as the root user:

    inventory_directory/createCentralInventory.sh 
    

    If you do not have root access on the machine but want to continue with the installation, select Continue installation with local inventory.

2.1.6 Installing and Configuring a Supported Database

The database that you use for Oracle WebCenter Content applications must be compatible with Repository Creation Utility (RCU), which creates the schemas for the Oracle WebCenter Content applications.

Note:

RCU is available only for a Linux or Windows operating system. You can use either the Linux-based RCU or Windows-based RCU to create schemas in any supported database.

For the latest information about supported databases, see the Oracle Fusion Middleware Supported System Configurations page on Oracle Technology Network at

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/ias/downloads/fusion-certification-100350.html

For more information about Oracle Database, see the Oracle Documentation page on Oracle Technology Network at

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/indexes/documentation/index.html#database

2.2 Creating Oracle WebCenter Content Schemas with the Repository Creation Utility

This section explains how to use Repository Creation Utility (RCU) to create database schemas for Oracle WebCenter Content applications, in these topics:

2.2.1 Preparing to Run RCU and Load Schemas

Oracle WebCenter Content requires that an application schema exists in the database prior to configuration of an application that requires a schema. You must run RCU to create a schema in the database.

Before running RCU and loading any application schemas, make sure your system meets the prerequisites for RCU and the application or applications.

2.2.1.1 Database Prerequisites

The configuration of Oracle WebCenter Content requires the availability of a supported database. This database must be up and running, and it does not have to be on the same system where you are installing the products. The database must also be compatible with RCU, which you need to use to create the schemas necessary for Oracle WebCenter Content products.

For information about supported databases, see the "System Requirements and Supported Platforms" document for your product on the Oracle Fusion Middleware Supported System Configurations page on Oracle Technology Network at

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/ias/downloads/fusion-certification-100350.html

After you have installed a database, make sure that it is configured correctly by referring to the "Repository Creation Utility Requirements" section in the "System Requirements and Specification" document on Oracle Technology Network at

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/ias/downloads/fusion-requirements-100147.html

2.2.1.2 Database Maintenance for Oracle WebCenter Content Schemas

After the Oracle WebCenter Content schemas are created, make sure the database index is up to date. Add new indexes when necessary.

2.2.1.3 RCU for Linux and Windows Operating Systems

RCU is available only on a Linux or Windows operating system. You can use RCU from a Linux or Windows operating system to create schemas in a supported database installed on any operating system.

2.2.2 Creating Schemas for Oracle WebCenter Content Applications

Oracle WebCenter Content requires that an application schema exists in the database before configuration of the application. You must run the Repository Creation Utility (RCU) to create application schemas in the database, which must be up and running before you start RCU. You can create application schemas before or after you install Oracle WebLogic Server or Oracle WebCenter Content, for one or more of these applications:

  • Oracle WebCenter Content (WebCenter Content, which includes Oracle WebCenter Content Server)

  • Oracle WebCenter Content: Imaging

  • Oracle Information Rights Management (Oracle IRM)

  • Oracle WebCenter Content: Records

You can download a ZIP file containing the Repository Creation Utility from either of these websites:

Note:

On a Windows operating system, do not unzip the RCU ZIP file to a directory with a name that contains spaces.

After downloading the ZIP file, you can extract the contents to a directory of your choice.

To create schemas for Oracle WebCenter Content applications:

  1. Unzip the ZIP file containing the Repository Creation Utility to a location, media_loc, and then start RCU:

    • UNIX path: media_loc/rcu/bin/rcu

    • Windows path: media_loc\rcu\bin\rcu.bat

  2. Welcome screen

    Click Next.

  3. Create Repository screen

    Select Create.

    Click Next.

  4. Database Connection Details screen

    Database Type: Select one of these types:

    • Oracle Database (the default type)

    • Oracle Database enabled for edition-based redefinition

    • Microsoft SQL Server

    • IBM DB2

    For SQL Server:

    Before you can use SQL Server with WebCenter Content, you need to turn on snapshot isolation in the database. If you plan to use SQL Server for the back-end database for Imaging and Oracle SOA Suite, you also need to configure the Metadata Services (MDS) repository in the database and then create an MDS schema on the Select Components screen (Step 5).

    The prerequisite configurations for WebCenter Content and the MDS repository follow:

    1. Log in to the database with a user name that has DBA privileges and does not have multiple logins to the database.

      Multiple logins for the DBA would result in a lock error.

    2. Alter the database to turn on the ALLOW_SNAPSHOT_ISOLATION option, with this command:

      ALTER DATABASE dbname SET ALLOW_SNAPSHOT_ISOLATION ON
      
    3. Alter the database to turn on the READ_COMMITTED_SNAPSHOT option, with this command:

      ALTER DATABASE MDS SET READ_COMMITTED_SNAPSHOT ON
      

    For more information about supported databases, see Section 2.2.1.1, "Database Prerequisites."

    For connecting to a database instance, provide the following information:

    • Host Name: Specify the name of the machine on which your database resides, in the format host.example.com.

      For Oracle Real Application Cluster (RAC) databases, specify the Virtual IP name or one of the node names.

    • Port: Specify the database listen port number. The default port number is 1521 for an Oracle Database instance, 1433 for Microsoft SQL Server, or 50000 for IBM DB2.

    • Service Name: Specify the service name for the database. Typically, the service name is the same as the global database name.

      If you do not know the service name for your database, you can obtain it from the SERVICE_NAMES parameter in the database's initialization parameter file. If this file does not contain the SERVICE_NAMES parameter, then the service name is the same as the global database name, which is specified in the DB_NAME and DB_DOMAIN parameters. Another way to find the service name is to log in to the database as SYS and run the following command:

      show parameter service_name 
      

      For Oracle RAC databases, specify the service name of one of the nodes in this field; for example, sales.example.com.

    • Username: Specify the user name of the database administrator.

      For Oracle Database, specify the name of a user with SYSDBA or DBA privileges. The default user name with SYSDBA privileges is SYS.

      For Microsoft SQL Server, specify the name of a user with SYSDBA or DBA privileges.

      For IBM DB2, RCU needs to connect as the MDS schema owner. Specify an operating system user for the MDS database schema (for example,
      OWSM_MDS
      ). An operating system user has to be created before you use RCU to create an MDS schema in an IBM DB2 database.

    • Password: Specify the password for your database user.

      For IBM DB2, specify the password for the operating system user for the MDS database schema.

    • Role: Select a database user role from the list.

      SYS requires the SYSDBA role.

    Click Next. The Checking Global Prerequisites dialog box appears.

    If you have any prerequisite errors, the Database Connection Details screen displays details about the errors. Fix any errors, then click Next again.

    After the checking is complete with no errors, click OK to dismiss the dialog box and go to the next screen.

  5. Select Components screen

    Figure 2-1 RCU Select Components Screen

    Description of Figure 2-1 follows
    Description of "Figure 2-1 RCU Select Components Screen"

    Near the top of the screen, select Create a new Prefix, and specify a prefix, or leave the default prefix, DEV. The prefix identifies your schema in the database. If more than one schema for the same product is stored in the database, each schema owner needs to specify a unique prefix.

    For Oracle Database or Microsoft SQL Server, the prefix can contain from 1 to 12 alphanumeric characters (0-9, a-z, or A-Z).

    For IBM DB2, the prefix can contain only 4 characters because the entire schema owner name is limited to 8 characters. No white space or special characters are allowed. RCU displays your prefix later with an underline character appended. For example, RCU would display the default prefix as DEV_. If the default name of the schema suffix is longer than 3 characters, you need to change it for IBM DB2. For example, DEV_URMSERVER could be DEV_URM and DEV_ORAIRM could be DEV_IRM.

    Expand WebCenter Content (for Oracle WebCenter Content applications) in the Component column, and select one or more of the following applications:

    • Oracle Information Rights Management

    • Oracle WebCenter Content Server - Complete

      (for WebCenter Content)

    • Oracle WebCenter Content Server - Search Only

    • Oracle WebCenter Content: Records

    • Oracle WebCenter Content: Imaging

    To create a schema for WebCenter Content:

    • Select Oracle WebCenter Content Server - Complete.

    To create an OCSSEARCH schema for OracleTextSearch:

    To create schemas for Imaging:

    • Select Oracle WebCenter Content: Imaging, and also select Oracle WebCenter Content Server - Complete to use WebCenter Content as the Imaging repository.

    • For Oracle Web Services Manager (Oracle WSM) Policy Manager, or for using Imaging with Oracle SOA Suite, expand AS Common Schemas and select Metadata Services. If you are using Microsoft SQL Server for the back-end database, you need to configure MDS as described in Step 4 before you select Metadata Services on this screen.

    To create schemas for AXF for BPM:

    • Select WebCenter Content > Oracle WebCenter Content: Imaging.

    • If you are going to use AXF for BPM with Imaging, you also need schemas for the following components:

      • WebCenter Content > Oracle WebCenter Content Server - Complete

      • AS Common Schemas > Metadata Services

      • SOA and BPM Infrastructure > SOA Infrastructure

      • SOA and BPM Infrastructure > User Messaging Service (automatically created with the SOA Infrastructure schema)

      • Identity Management > Oracle Internet Directory (automatically created)

    Your database must contain a schema for an application before you configure it.

    Click Next. The Checking Component Prerequisites dialog box appears.

    If you have any prerequisite errors, the Select Components screen displays details about the errors. Fix any errors, then click Next again.

    After the checking is complete with no errors, click OK to dismiss the dialog box and go to the next screen.

  6. Schema Passwords screen

    Specify a password for the schema owner.

    For Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle Database, RCU will create a new database user.

    IBM DB2 authentication uses operating system authentication, and you must create the user within the operating system running the database, using the appropriate name. The password set here must be the user's password on the database host. RCU imposes different restrictions than the operating system on the characters that you can use in the password.

    For each application listed in the Component column, enter a password in the Schema Password and Confirm Password columns.

    For a development system, you might want to select Use same passwords for all schemas, near the top of the screen. Enter your password two times, in the Password and Confirm Password field.

    Note:

    Record all schema passwords from this screen because you will need them later to configure your applications.

    Click Next.

  7. Map Tablespaces screen

    The default Oracle WebCenter Content tablespaces are shown in Figure 2-2.

    Figure 2-2 Default Oracle WebCenter Content Tablespaces on Map Tablespaces Screen

    Description of Figure 2-2 follows
    Description of "Figure 2-2 Default Oracle WebCenter Content Tablespaces on Map Tablespaces Screen"

    If you want to create new tablespaces or modify or remove existing ones, click Manage Tablespaces, and go to the next step.

    To validate the tablespaces, click Next on the Map Tablespaces screen. The Confirmation dialog box appears. Click OK to create tablespaces. The Validating and Creating Tablespaces dialog box appears.

    If you have any validation errors, the Map Tablespaces screen displays details about the errors. You can track errors in log files, such as irm.log and rcu.log. This screen displays the log locations. Fix any errors, then click Next again. After the tablespaces are created with no errors, click OK to dismiss the dialog box.

    Notes:

    • Record each schema owner name from this screen because you will need it later, in the format schemaprefix_schemasuffix, to configure the corresponding application.

      For example, if you used the default prefix, DEV_, you would supply the following owner name for the Records schema in Oracle Database:

      DEV_URMSERVER
      

      For IBM DB2, however, the schema owner name is limited to 8 characters, with up to 4 characters for the prefix. If the default name of the schema suffix is longer than 3 characters, you need to change it for IBM DB2 on the Configure JDBC Component Schema screen. For example, DEV_URMSERVER could be DEV_URM and DEV_ORAIRM could be DEV_IRM.

    • For an IBM DB2 database, any tablespace that PUBLIC has access to is required to have a 32 KB page size. WebCenter Content requires a 32  KB page size to create tables at design time. All the tablespaces that PUBLIC has access to are accessible by WebCenter Content.

    • If you are using an IBM DB2 database, run the following statement to prevent PUBLIC access to the default tablespace:

      REVOKE USE OF TABLESPACE USERSPACE1 FROM PUBLIC
      

      If the statement could be run multiple times, run the following statements instead:

      GRANT USE OF TABLESPACE USERSPACE1 TO PUBLIC
      REVOKE USE OF TABLESPACE USERSPACE1 FROM PUBLIC
      

      Userspace1, the default tablespace for IBM DB2, is created when a database is created. Every user has access to this tablespace. This access can cause a problem because a table created at design time, after the system is installed, could potentially put a table in this tablespace. The result would be an undesirable mix of some of an application's tables in its own tablespace and others in a tablespace that is shared by other users. Running the preceding REVOKE statement would revoke PUBLIC access to the default tablespace, which in turn would revoke all users' access to the tablespace. Each Oracle WebCenter Content application then would have access only to its own tablespace.

  8. Manage Tablespaces screen

    You can go to the next step if you are not managing any tablespaces.

    On this screen, you can modify, remove, or add one or more tablespaces. Tablespaces that existed before RCU was launched are visible on this screen but are grayed out and cannot be modified or removed. Only tablespaces that are being created by RCU can be modified or removed.

    Only tablespaces that are used by a component are created. You can specify a new tablespace here, but unless it is actually used by a component, it will not be created.

    You can partition a table across tablespaces. The partitioning depends on the requirements for your installation. Typical partitioning keys are date (for example, dInDate in a Revisions table) and numeric range (such as dID).

    To remove a tablespace:

    1. Select the name of the tablespace you want to remove from the navigation tree on the left.

    2. Click Remove.

      This tablespace will not get created.

    3. Click OK to return to the Map Tablespaces screen, and go back to Step 7, "Map Tablespaces screen", for instructions on validating the tablespaces.

    To modify or add a tablespace:

    1. If you want to modify a tablespace, select the tablespace name from the navigation tree on the left.

    2. If you want to add a tablespace, click Add.

    3. Specify the values you want in these fields:

      • Name

        Specify a name, or edit the name in this field.

      • Type

        Specify whether you want this tablespace to be temporary or permanent.

      • Block Size (KB)

        Specify the block size, in kilobytes, to be used for data retrieval.

      • Storage Type

        If you want to create a tablespace for a large file or files, select Use Bigfile Tablespace.

        If you want to use bitmaps to manage the free space within segments, select Use Automatic Segment Space Management.

    4. In the Datafiles section, specify the data files that make up the selected tablespace.

      To delete a data file, select the icon next to the name of the file you want to delete, then click the icon with the X.

      To modify a data file, select the icon next to the name of the file, and click the icon with the pencil. To add a data file, click the icon with the plus sign (+). Then, on the Add Datafile screen, edit or provide the following information:

      • File Name

        Specify the name of the data file.

      • File Directory

        Specify the location where this data file will reside.

      • Size

        Specify the initial size of the data file. Use the dropdown menu next to the field to specify the size in kilobytes (KB), megabytes (MB), or gigabytes (GB).

      • Automatically extend datafile when full (AUTOEXTEND)

        Select this option if you want to automatically extend the size of the data file when it becomes full.

        In the Increment field, specify the size by which the data file should be increased each time it becomes full. Use the dropdown menu next to the field to specify the size in kilobytes (KB), megabytes (MB), or gigabytes (GB).

        If you want to limit maximum size of the data file, specify this value in the Maximum Size field.

      Note:

      If you set the Maximum Size value too low, then you may have a problem when Content Server (or Records) tries to write to the database. As it reaches the size limit for the data file, the database would deny the write operation.

    5. Click OK to return to the Map Tablespaces screen, and go back to Step 7, "Map Tablespaces screen," for instructions on validating the tablespaces.

    For more information about creating or modifying tablespaces, see "Map Tablespaces Screen" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Repository Creation Utility User's Guide.

  9. Summary screen

    Click Create. The CREATE dialog box opens.

    If you have any schema creation errors, the Summary screen displays details about the errors. Fix any errors, then click Next again.

    After RCU creates the schema or schemas with no errors, click OK to dismiss the dialog box.

  10. Completion Summary screen

    This screen shows the locations of the RCU log file and component (application) log files.

    Click Close.

Note:

The user account created for a schema has a default expiration date of six months after creation. The database administrator should change the expiration of the user account to a later date. To view the expiration date for an account, use the SQL statement SELECT * FROM all_users or SELECT * FROM dba_users.

For more information about RCU, see the Oracle Fusion Middleware Repository Creation Utility User's Guide.

2.3 Installing an Application Server and Oracle Fusion Middleware

Oracle WebCenter Content requires a Middleware home and an application server on your system. If your system does not already have an application server, you can install Oracle WebLogic Server with Oracle Fusion Middleware in a new Middleware home directory, before or after installation of the database and creation of the schemas. Or you can install an IBM WebSphere application server, as described in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Third-Party Application Server Guide.

To install Oracle WebLogic Server in a Middleware home:

  1. Download the Oracle WebLogic Server Installer from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud or Oracle Technology Network (OTN) website.

    For information about downloading Oracle WebLogic Server, see Section 1.2.2, "Software Downloads for Oracle WebCenter Content Installation and Configuration."

    The 32-bit and 64-bit executable files from which you can install Oracle WebLogic Server are bundled with the appropriate JDK version. If you use the JAR files, you will need to invoke the installer with a supported JDK for your platform. This supported JDK must be installed on your system before you install Oracle WebLogic Server because it is needed to run the JAR file.

    On a Windows operating system, the JDK must be installed in a directory without spaces in the directory path (not underneath the \Program Files directory).

    For a list of supported JDKs for your operating system, see the Oracle Fusion Middleware Supported System Configurations page on Oracle Technology Network at

    http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/ias/downloads/fusion-certification-100350.html
    
  2. Copy the installer file to a directory in your local system, go to that directory, and run the installer locally, after considering these notes:

    • Invoke Using UNIX BINs

      Before running the installer on a UNIX operating system that is running XWindows, you need to set your system's DISPLAY environment variable to a valid X Server to redirect the display to a system with suitable graphic capabilities.

      In the following commands, wls103n can be either wls1035 or wls1036.

      To run the installer on a 32-bit Linux operating system, use this command:

      ./wls103n_linux32.bin
      

      To run the installer on a 64-bit Linux operating system, use this command:

      ./wls103n_linux64.bin
      
    • Invoke Using UNIX JARs

      Before running the installer on a UNIX operating system that is running XWindows, you need to set your system's DISPLAY environment variable to a valid X Server to redirect the display to a system with suitable graphic capabilities.

      If you installed a JDK for your system, set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to the installation location.

      In the following commands, wls103n can be either wls1035 or wls1036.

      To run the installer on a 64-bit UNIX operating system, use either of these commands, in which JAVA_HOME is the location of the JDK:

      JAVA_HOME/bin/java -jar wls103n_generic.jar
      
      JAVA_HOME/bin/java -d64 -jar wls103n_generic.jar
      

      If you are installing Oracle WebLogic Server on a 64-bit system and using a 32/64-bit hybrid JDK (such as the HP JDK for HP-UX or SUN JDK for Solaris SPARC), you need to use the -d64 flag when you run the installer.

      To validate that your JAVA_HOME environment variable refers to a 64-bit JDK when you use a 32/64-bit hybrid JDK, run either of the following commands, in which JAVA_HOME is the value of the environment variable:

      JAVA_HOME/bin/java -version
      
      JAVA_HOME/bin/java -d64 -version
      
    • Invoke Using a Windows System

      In the following commands, wls103n can be either wls1035 or wls1036.

      To run the installer on a 32-bit Windows operating system, use this command:

      wls103n_win32.exe
      

      To run the installer on a 64-bit Windows operating system, use this command:

      JAVA_HOME\bin\java -jar wls103n_generic.jar
      
  3. Welcome screen

    Click Next.

  4. Choose Middleware Home Directory screen

    Select Create a new Middleware Home.

    Specify a location for your new Middleware home directory, which MW_HOME represents in path names. If this directory already exists on your system, the directory must be empty. If it does not already exist, then the installer creates it.

    Note:

    Record this location because you will need to provide it during the installation of Oracle WebCenter Content.

    The default Oracle Middleware home is user_home/Oracle/Middleware on a UNIX operating system or user_home\Oracle\Middleware on a Windows operating system. For more information, see "Middleware Home and WebLogic Server Home Directories" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Planning Guide.

    Click Next.

  5. Register for Security Updates screen

    Select whether or not to receive the latest product and security updates. If you choose not to receive anything, you need to verify your selection.

    Click Next.

  6. Choose Install Type screen

    Select Typical to install Oracle WebLogic Server, Oracle Coherence, and the Sun and JRockit JDKs.

    Click Next.

    If you are prompted for a JDK location on a 64-bit system, specify a JDK:

    1. Browse to the JDK location.

    2. Select the directory that contains the bin directory

    3. Click Next.

  7. Choose Product Installation Directories screen

    Specify a location for your Oracle WebLogic Server home directory, which
    WL_HOME represents in path names in this document. The default location for
    WL_HOME
    follows:

    • UNIX path: MW_HOME/wlserver_10.3

    • Windows path: MW_HOME\wlserver_10.3

    You can also change the installation directory for Oracle Coherence. The default location follows:

    • UNIX path: MW_HOME/coherence_3.n

    • Windows path: MW_HOME\coherence_3.n

2.4 Using the Installer for Oracle WebCenter Content

You can install Oracle WebCenter Content before or after you create schemas for the Oracle WebCenter Content applications. When you use the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g WebCenter Content Installer, you perform a base installation of the following products in a WebCenter Content Oracle home directory on your system:

Note:

If you plan to use Oracle SOA Suite with Imaging, such as for AXF for BPM or AXF for BPEL, you need to install and configure Oracle SOA Suite first. For information about installing and configuring Oracle SOA Suite, see the Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle Business Process Management Suite.

After you install Oracle WebCenter Content and create application schemas, you can deploy any of these products to an Oracle WebLogic Server domain, as applications, by creating or extending an Oracle WebLogic Server domain, as described in Chapter 3, "Configuring Oracle WebCenter Content Applications." For information about application schemas, see Section 2.2, "Creating Oracle WebCenter Content Schemas with the Repository Creation Utility."

Note:

For document conversions on a Solaris SPARC platform, Imaging requires the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) package 3.4.2 or later in the /usr/local/packages directory.

Install this package on the Solaris operating system that will run Imaging. You can download GCC from the Sunfreeware website at

http://www.sunfreeware.com

You also need to set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable to /usr/local/packages/gcc-3.4.2/lib before starting the Imaging Managed Server. If you are using a later version of GCC, set that version instead of 3.4.2.

2.4.1 Starting the Installer

You can start the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g WebCenter Content Installer from Disk 1 of the media:

  • UNIX command:
    wcc_media_loc
    /Disk1/runInstaller -jreLoc jre_location

    If you do not specify the JRE location, the installer either prompts you for the location or returns an error. If you get an error, retry the command with the JRE location included.

  • Windows command:
    wcc_installer_loc
    /Disk1/setup.exe -jreLoc jre_location

    If you double-click setup.exe, the installer either prompts you for the JRE location or returns an error. If you get an error, enter the command with the JRE location included. If you are prompted for the JRE location, enter the path, and then click Enter to start the Oracle WebCenter Content installation.

The installer requires the location of a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) on your system. A JRE was installed with Oracle Fusion Middleware. Table 2-1 shows the default JRE location for 32-bit systems. On a 64-bit system, you will need to invoke the installer with a supported JDK for your platform.

Table 2-1 Default JRE Locations for 32-Bit Systems

Operating
System
Production Environment Development Environment

UNIX

MW_HOME/jrockit_160_nn_string/jre

MW_HOME/jdk160_nn/jre

Windows

MW_HOME\jrockit_160_nn_string\jre

MW_HOME\jdk160_nn\jre


In the table, nn represents a JRE version number.

You can either use the -jreLoc option or allow the installer to prompt for the directory containing the bin/java directory.

Notes:

2.4.2 Following the Installation Instructions

After you have started the installer, as described in Section 2.4.1, follow the instructions in Table 2-2 to install Oracle WebCenter Content.

If you need additional help with any of the installation screens, see Appendix A, "Installation Screens for Oracle WebCenter Content," or click Help on a screen to access the online help.

Screen When This Screen
Appears
Description and Action to Take

Welcome

Always

Click Next to begin the installation process.

Install Software Updates

Always

Specify any software updates to install before you install Oracle WebCenter Content.

To get updates from My Oracle Support (formerly OracleMetaLink), you can select Search My Oracle Support for Updates, specify a user name and password, and then click Search for Updates. Before you search, you can click Proxy Settings to change the settings for the proxy server and Test Connection to test the credentials.

To get updates that you have saved to your computer, you can select Search Local Directory for Updates, specify a directory, and then click Search for Updates.

If you do not want to update any software, select Skip Software Updates, and then click Next to continue the installation.

Prerequisite Checks

Always

If the installer displays an error message in the bottom section of the screen, fix the error, and then click Retry to start the prerequisite checking again for all applications. Repeat this until the prerequisite checks complete with no errors.

If you want to stop the installation process while you fix a prerequisite error, click Abort.

If you want to continue the installation without fixing an error, click Continue.

After the prerequisite checks complete with no errors, click Next to continue the installation.

Specify Installation Location

Always

Specify the Middleware home (MW_HOME) and WebCenter Content Oracle home (WCC_ORACLE_HOME) locations.

Enter values into the following fields:

  • Oracle Middleware Home: Select the Middleware home directory (MW_HOME, which was created during the installation of Oracle WebLogic Server.

    The default Oracle Middleware home is user_home/Oracle/Middleware on a UNIX operating system or user_home\Oracle\Middleware on a Windows operating system.

  • Oracle Home Directory: Specify the directory where you want to install Oracle WebCenter Content.

    For Oracle WebLogic Server, if you specify a directory that already exists, it must be empty and inside the Middleware home directory. If you specify a new directory, the installer creates it inside the Middleware home directory.

The installation directory becomes the WebCenter Content Oracle home, represented by WCC_ORACLE_HOME in path names. Runtime components cannot write to this directory. The default WebCenter Content Oracle home is MW_HOME/Oracle_ECM1 on a UNIX operating system or MW_HOME\Oracle_ECM1 on a Windows operating system.

Note: This document refers to this directory as the WebCenter Content Oracle home to avoid confusion with the Oracle home directories of other Java components of Oracle Fusion Middleware. For more information, see "Oracle Home and Oracle Common Home Directories" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Planning Guide

Click Next to continue.
