This page introduces you to the Oracle Fusion Middleware installer and provides two important pieces of information:

  • A navigation pane on the left that summarizes the tasks the installer will help you complete. Each item in the navigation pane represents a specific installer screen that will prompt you for information required to install the software.

  • Information about any prerequisites you might need to perform before continuing with the installation.

Review the information on this screen carefully to be sure you have performed all the necessary prerequisites.

If you are not sure about any of the prerequisite tasks, refer to the Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Planning Guide or to Section 2.1, "Verifying Your System and Network Environment".

More About System Requirements and Prerequisites

Note that before performing any installation you should read the system requirements and certification documentation 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).

The Oracle Fusion Middleware System Requirements and Specifications document covers information such as hardware and software requirements, minimum disk space and memory requirements, and required system libraries, packages, or patches.

The Oracle Fusion Middleware certification document for this release can be found on the Oracle Fusion Middleware Supported System Configurations page. This document covers supported installation types, platforms, operating systems, databases, JDKs, and third-party products.
