2 Installing Oracle Data Integrator and the Demonstration Environment

This chapter provides an overview of how to install Oracle Data Integrator and the demonstration environment. The instructions in this chapter are the instructions required for using the demonstration environment with Oracle Data Integrator Studio.

This chapter includes the following sections:

Note:

Oracle Data Integrator Studio and the demonstration environment must be installed on your system to perform the tasks described in this Getting Started guide.

2.1 Preparing to Install

Review the information in this section before you begin:

2.1.1 Review System Requirements and Certification

Before installing any Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) components, you should read the system requirements and certification documentation to ensure that your environment meets the minimum installation requirements. Both of these documents are available on Oracle Technology Network (OTN).

The system requirements document covers information such as hardware and software requirements, minimum disk space and memory requirements, and required system libraries, packages, or patches:

http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/ias/files/fusion_requirements.htm

The certification document covers supported installation types, platforms, operating systems, databases, JDKs, and third-party products:

http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/ias/files/fusion_certification.html

Note:

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

2.1.2 Understand Oracle Fusion Middleware Support of 64-bit JDK

If you are using a 64-bit Java Virtual Machine (JVM) in your environment, ensure that all your Oracle Fusion Middleware components are using the 64-bit JVM. You cannot mix components using a 32-bit JVM with those using a 64-bit JVM.

Refer to the Oracle Fusion Middleware Certifications matrix for information on the platforms that support a 64-bit JDK:

http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/ias/files/fusion_certification.html

2.1.3 Create ODI Repositories

You do not need to create ODI repositories for using the demonstration environment in ODI Studio. The demonstration environment provides the necessary preconfigured repositories.

2.2 Installing Oracle Data Integrator

This section contains information and instructions for installing Oracle Data Integrator Studio. The installation instructions in this chapter are the instructions required for using the demonstration environment in Oracle Data Integrator Studio.

For detailed installation instructions, see the Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle Data Integrator.

This section contains the following topics:

Note:

If you are installing on a UNIX system for the first time, you may be asked to run the ORACLE_HOME/oracleRoot.sh script as root user to create all of the necessary installation directories.

2.2.1 Downloading the Installer and the Demo Environment

The installer and the demo environment are available on the Oracle Data Integrator Downloads page on Oracle Technology Network (OTN).

To download the installer and the demo environment:

  1. Go to the Oracle Data Integrator Downloads page on OTN at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/data-integrator/downloads/index.html

  2. Download the 11g Oracle Data Integrator Media Pack and the 11g demo environment for your platform to a temporary folder.

2.2.2 Starting the Installer

To start the installer, uncompress the Oracle Data Integrator Media Pack you have downloaded in a temporary folder and run the following command from this folder:

  • On UNIX operating systems:

    ./runInstaller
    
  • On Windows operating systems:

    setup.exe
    

Note:

The minimum JDK required for Oracle Data Integrator is JDK 1.6. Refer to the Oracle Fusion Middleware Certification documentation to see the JDKs supported for your system:

http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/ias/files/fusion_certification.html

2.2.3 Installation Types

You need to install the following components to work with the demo environment:

  • ODI Studio

  • Standalone Agent

This corresponds to the Developer and the Standalone installation type.

2.2.4 Installation Instructions

Follow these instructions to install and configure Oracle Data Integrator Studio:

Note:

If you need additional help with any of the installation screens, refer to the Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle Data Integrator or click Help to access the online help.

  1. In the Welcome Screen, click Next to continue.

  2. In the Select Installation Type Screen, select both Developer Installation and Standalone Installation as shown in Figure 2-1. Note that ODI Studio and ODI SDK are automatically selected.

    Figure 2-1 Select Installation Type Screen

    Surrounding text describes Figure 2-1 .
  3. Click Next to continue.

  4. In the Prerequisite Checks Screen, click Next to continue.

  5. In the Specify Installation Location Screen, enter the absolute path for the Oracle home location (referred to later in this guide as ODI_HOME). For example:

    C:\oracle\ODI_HOME1

    Note:

    The specified directory must be an empty directory or an existing Oracle Data Integrator home location.

  6. Click Next to continue.

  7. In the Repository Configuration Screen, select Skip Repository Configuration.

  8. Click Next to continue.

  9. In the Specify Agent Details Screen, enter the following agent details:

    • Agent Name: DemoAgent

    • Agent Port: 20910

      Note that the port number should not be used by any other process and that the agent name cannot be the same as another agent already declared in the topology.

    The Specify Agent Details screen is shown in Figure 2-2.

    Figure 2-2 Specify Agent Details Screen

    Surrounding text describes Figure 2-2 .
  10. In the Specify Security Updates Screen, choose how you want to be notified about security issues:

    • If you want to be notified about security issues through E-mail, enter your E-mail address in the E-mail field.

    • If you want to be notified about security issues through My Oracle Support (formerly MetaLink), select the My Oracle Support option and enter your My Oracle Support Password.

    • If you do not want to be notified about security issues, leave all fields empty. You will see the following message: "My Oracle Support Username/E-mail address not specified". Click Yes to continue.

  11. In the Specify Security Updates Screen, click Next to continue.

  12. In the Installation Summary Screen, verify the information.

  13. Click Install to begin the installation.

  14. In the Installation Progress Screen, click Next to continue.

  15. In the Configuration Progress Screen, click Next to continue.

  16. In the Installation Completed Screen, click Finish to dismiss the installer.

Oracle Data Integrator is now installed.

2.3 Installing the Demonstration Environment

The Oracle Data Integrator demonstration environment is delivered on the Oracle Data Integrator companion CD and can be downloaded from the Oracle Data Integrator Downloads page on Oracle Technology Network (OTN) at

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/data-integrator/downloads/index.html

The demonstration files and samples of the demonstration environment are located in the /demo folder of the companion CD.

Note:

The demonstration (demo) environment should be installed with an existing installation that includes the ODI Studio component.

To manually install the Demonstration environment, do the following:

  1. Unzip oracledi-demo.zip in the ODI_HOME folder.

  2. Verify that the JAVA_HOME environment variable is set and contains the path of a JVM suitable for Oracle Data Integrator.

    If this variable is not set correctly, set it to a valid java machine location.

    For example:

    On UNIX operating systems:

    setenv JAVA_HOME/usr/local/java

    On Windows operating systems:

    Set the JAVA_HOME variable graphically

    For a list of certified JVM versions, see http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/ias/files/fusion_certification.html.

You can now use the demonstration environment in Oracle Data Integrator Studio.
