C Silent Installation

This appendix describes how to install Application Developer from the command line in silent mode.

This appendix contains the following topics:

C.1 About Silent Installation and Deinstallation

For information about silent installation and deinstallation, see "Silent Installation and Deinstallation" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Planning Guide.

C.2 Oracle Application Developer Response Files

Oracle recommends creating your response file by first running the install GUI, and then clicking Save on the Installation Summary. You will be prompted for a name and location where you want to create this response file. After it is created, you can use it exactly as-is to replicate the installation on other systems, or modify it as needed.

C.2.1 Installation Response Files

A sample response file called sampleResponse_wls.rsp (see Section C.2.1.1) is provided in the Disk1/stage/Response directory on UNIX, and Disk1\stage\Response directory on Windows, in the location where you unzipped your downloaded archive file, for installation. This template response file can be used to install the Oracle Application Developer software if you are using Oracle WebLogic Server as the application server. If you are using IBM WebSphere as your application server, you must use the sampleResponse_was.rsp file (see Section C.2.1.2).

In either case, you still need to run the Configuration Wizard after installation to create or extend your WebLogic domain and configure Oracle Application Developer components.

C.2.1.1 Contents of the sampleResponse_wls.rps File

The contents of the sampleResponse_wls.rsp file are shown below:

[ENGINE] #DO NOT CHANGE THIS.Response File Version=1.0.0.0.0 [GENERIC] #Set this to true if you wish to specify a directory where latest updates are downloaded. This option would use the software updates from the specified directorySPECIFY_DOWNLOAD_LOCATION=false #SKIP_SOFTWARE_UPDATES=true #If the Software updates are already downloaded and available on your local system, then specify the path to the directory where these patches are available and set SPECIFY_DOWNLOAD_LOCATION to trueSOFTWARE_UPDATES_DOWNLOAD_LOCATION= #Provide existing Middleware Home location.MIDDLEWARE_HOME=/home/middleware #Application Server choices are WLS, WAS, JBossAPPSERVER_TYPE=WLS
 
 [SYSTEM] [APPLICATIONS]  [RELATIONSHIPS]

The parameters you should change in this file are:

  • SKIP_SOFTWARE_UPDATES: Set this to true if you do not want to configure your system to receive software updates. If you do, then set this parameter to false. Set the SPECIFY_DOWNLOAD_LOCATION parameter to true if you want to specify a directory where the latest updates are downloaded, then specify this location with the SOFTWARE_UPDATES_DOWNLOAD_LOCATION parameter.

  • MIDDLEWARE_HOME: Specify the full path to your Middleware home directory.

C.2.1.2 Contents of the sampleResponse_was.rsp File

The contents of the sampleResponse_was.rsp file are shown below:

[ENGINE]
 
#DO NOT CHANGE THIS.
Response File Version=1.0.0.0.0
 
[GENERIC]
 
#Set this to true if you wish to specify a directory where latest updates are downloaded. This option would use the software updates from the specified directory
SPECIFY_DOWNLOAD_LOCATION=false
 
#
SKIP_SOFTWARE_UPDATES=true
 
#If the Software updates are already downloaded and available on your local system, then specify the path to the directory where these patches are available and set SPECIFY_DOWNLOAD_LOCATION to true
SOFTWARE_UPDATES_DOWNLOAD_LOCATION=
 
#Provide Middleware Home location.
MIDDLEWARE_HOME=/home/middleware
 
#Application Server choices are WLS, WAS, JBoss
APPSERVER_TYPE=WAS
 
#Application Server Location to be specified for WAS and JBoss.
APPSERVER_LOCATION=/home/wasinstall
 
 
[SYSTEM]
 
 
[APPLICATIONS]
 
 
[RELATIONSHIPS]

The parameters you should change in this file are:

  • SKIP_SOFTWARE_UPDATES: Set this to true if you do not want to configure your system to receive software updates. If you do, then set this parameter to false. Set the SPECIFY_DOWNLOAD_LOCATION parameter to true if you want to specify a directory where the latest updates are downloaded, then specify this location with the SOFTWARE_UPDATES_DOWNLOAD_LOCATION parameter.

  • MIDDLEWARE_HOME: Specify the full path to your Middleware home directory. Remember that this directory must be specified even if you are not using Oracle WebLogic Server as your application server.

  • APPSERVER_LOCATION: Specify the installation directory for your IBM WebSphere application server.

C.2.2 Deinstallation Response Files

A sample deinstallation response file called deinstall_oh.rsp is provided in the Disk1/stage/Response directory on UNIX, and Disk1\stage\Response directory on Windows, in the location where you downloaded and unzipped your archive file for installation. This template response file can be used to deinstall your Oracle Application Server software.

The contents of the deinstall_oh.rsp file are shown below:

[ENGINE]
 
#DO NOT CHANGE THIS.
Response File Version=1.0.0.0.0
 
[GENERIC]
 
#Identifies if the Instance deinstallation is valid or not
DEINSTALL_IN_ASINSTANCE_MODE=false
