This appendix contains screenshots and descriptions for all of the Application Developer installation screens:
This screen appears for UNIX systems only; if this is your first Oracle installation on this host, you must specify the location of the inventory directory. This inventory directory is used by the installer to keep track of all Oracle products installed on the computer.
The default inventory location is
In the Operating System Group name field, select the group whose members you want to grant access to the inventory directory; all members of this group will be able to install products on this system.
This screen appears for UNIX systems only; you are asked to run the

If you do not have
root access on this system but want to continue with the installation, select Continue installation with local inventory.
The Welcome screen is displayed each time you start the installer.
Select the method you want to use for installing software updates.

You can choose to skip this option for now.
Search My Oracle Support for Updates.
If you have a My Oracle Support account, you can specify your account name and password to have the installer automatically download applicable software updates from My Oracle Support. After entering your credentials, you can test the connection by clicking Test Connection. Click Proxy Settings if you need to configure a proxy server in order to have the installer access My Oracle Support.
Configure your proxy server with the following screen:
Search Local Directory for Updates.
If you have software updates available locally, you can specify the location by using this option. When you select Search Local Directory for Updates an additional "Location" field will appear, as shown below:
If there is a problem, a short error message appears in the bottom portion of the screen. Fix the error and click Retry to try again.
If you want to ignore the error and warning messages and continue with the installation, click Continue.
Click Abort to stop prerequisite checking for all components.
Specify the directories where you want to install your software:
If you are using Oracle WebLogic Server as your application server:
In the Oracle Middleware Home field, specify the absolute path to your existing Oracle Middleware home directory; this is the directory that was created when you installed Oracle WebLogic Server. If you do not know the full path to your Middleware home, you can click Browse to select an existing directory in your system.
If you are using IBM WebSphere as your application server:
In the Oracle Middleware Home field, specify the absolute path to the directory you want to use as the Middleware home. This directory has no relation to the location of your WebSphere installation. If you specify a directory location that does not already exist, the installer will create the directory for you.
With Application Developer, you are installing the products that are required for the Oracle Common home directory. In the Oracle Home Directory field, notice that the directory
oracle_common is already populated and can not be changed. This directory will be created inside the location you specify for your Middleware home.
If you are performing an installation on a Windows operating system, be sure that your directory paths are valid and do not contain double backslashes (\\).
Select the application server you want to use for this installation.
If the installer detects a Middleware home with Oracle WebLogic Server installed, then this is the application server that will be used. All other fields in this screen will be inactive.
If the installer detects a Middleware home without an Oracle WebLogic Server installed, you must select one of the application server options and then provide its location in the Application Server Location field.
If the installer does not detect a Middleware home directory, the "WebLogic Server" option will be inactive. You must select "WebSphere" and then provide the location of your IBM WebSphere in the Application Server Location field.
Review the information on this screen, and click Install to begin the installation. The operations summarized on this page will be performed when you click Install.
If you want to make any changes to the configuration before starting the installation, use the navigation pane and select the topic you want to edit.
If you want to save this configuration to a text file, click Save. This file can be used later if you choose to perform the same installation from the command line. See Appendix C for more information.
This screen shows you the progress of the installation.
If you want to quit before the installation is completed, click Cancel. Doing so results in a partial installation; the portion of the software that was installed on your system before you click Cancel remains on your system, and you have to remove it manually.
This screen summarizes the installation that was just completed.
If you want to save this summary information to a text file for future reference, click Save.
Click Finish to dismiss the screen.
