Oracle recommends you review its contents before installing, or working with the product.
Oracle Fusion Middleware installation and configuration will not complete successfully unless users meet the hardware and software pre-requisite requirements before installation.
For more information, see "Review System Requirements and Specifications" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Planning Guide
Oracle Fusion Middleware memory requirements for installation, configuration, and runtime are as follows:
Without a Database on the same server: Minimum 4 GB physical memory and 4 GB swap.
With a Database on the same server: Minimum 6 GB physical memory and 6 GB swap.
Note:These minimum memory values are with the assumption that no user or operating system process is consuming any unusually high amount of memory. If such a condition exists, corresponding amount of additional physical memory will be required.

If you choose to configure Oracle Internet Directory with Database vault, do the following:
Apply patch 8897382 to fix bug 8897382.
Note:the following workaround is required only if the Oracle Fusion Middleware version is 184.108.40.206.0 (11gR1). This issue will be fixed in 220.127.116.11.0.
Apply the workaround for bug 8987186 by editing
<OH>/ldap/datasecurity/dbv_oid_command_rules.sql file and find the following declaration:
/declare begin dvsys.dbms_macadm.CREATE_COMMAND_RULE( command => 'CONNECT' ,rule_set_name => 'OID App Access' ,object_owner => 'ODS' ,object_name => '%' ,enabled => 'Y'); commit; end;/
and change the line that is indicated in bold:
/declare begin dvsys.dbms_macadm.CREATE_COMMAND_RULE( command => 'CONNECT' ,rule_set_name => 'OID App Access' ,object_owner => '%' ,object_name => '%' ,enabled => 'Y'); commit; end;/
Vista prevents applets from creating files in the local file system if the User Account Control (UAC) system is turned on. You can experience this problem if you have the UAC setting enabled on Vista and if you use a component like Discoverer Plus. If you start Discoverer Plus and if you try exporting a worksheet to a specified directory, the exporting succeeds but you cannot see the exported file in the directory. The available workarounds is to disable UAC and set protection mode to OFF. Refer to Bugs 8410655 and 7328867 for additional information.
Only the design-time environments (Builders) are supported for Oracle Forms and Oracle Reports in Windows Vista and Windows XP.However, in the Configure Components screen in the Oracle Installer, the Server Components, Management Components and System Components are selected by default, but Developer Tools is deselected. When installing Oracle Forms Builder, or Oracle Reports Builder on Windows Vista and Windows XP computers, you must:
Select Developer Tools, such as Oracle Forms Builder or Oracle Reports Builder. Their respective server components are automatically selected.
Deselect all System Components and Management Components.
Deselect the Portal and Discoverer tools. Two of the Discoverer components – Discoverer Admin and Discoverer Desktop – will be installed even if you do not select Discoverer in the Configure Components screen of the installer. This is the correct, expected behavior in 18.104.22.168.0.
For Oracle Forms, since the System Components including Oracle HTTP Server are not supported in Windows Vista and Windows XP, the following features are not supported:
Oracle Forms and Reports integration.
The creation of virtual directories.
Internet Explorer 11 support requires patch 18277370, which is available from Oracle Support.
If you add portlets in Oracle WebCenter by using Internet Explorer, then the page can go blank. When it does go blank, a download message appears on the browser's status bar. However, nothing is downloaded and the browser remains blank until you click the browser's back button. If this problem occurs, the portlets will appear only when you hit the browser's back button. This issue does not occur with Firefox.
As a workaround, click the browser's back button.
When a JSPX page is deployed and is then accessed using Internet Explorer 7 (IE7), the XHTML source is displayed instead of the page contents. This occurs in both normal and osjp.next modes.
The workaround is to instruct application users to access the application with Firefox or Safari.
When a page using Scalar Vector Graphics is deployed and is then accessed using Internet Explorer 7 (IE7), the source is displayed instead of the page's graphic contents. This occurs in both normal and osjp.next modes.
The workaround for this issue is that Application developers should avoid using SVG graphics in their applications, as it is not natively supported in IE7. If they are used, a warning similar to the following should be added:
All current browsers, with the exception of Internet Explorer, support SVG files. Internet Explorer requires a plug-in to display SVG files. The plug-ins are available for free, for example, the Adobe SVG Viewer at http://www.adobe.com/svg/viewer/install/.
When you attempt to connect to Discoverer Plus by using the Mozilla Firefox browser on a computer that does not have Java 1.6 installed, Firefox does not download the JRE 1.6 plug-in automatically. Instead, Firefox displays the following message: "Additional plugins are required to display this page..."
The workaround is to download the JRE 1.6 plug-in by clicking the Install Missing Plugin link to install it manually.
When using AQ JMS with Oracle Database 22.214.171.124, JMXDELIVERYCOUNT is not set correctly.
The workaround is to apply patch 9932143 to Oracle Database 126.96.36.199. For more information, contact Oracle Support.
You need a Safari plugin to view raw XML. If there is no plugin installed, you will see unformatted XML which will be difficult to read. This is because Safari applies a default stylesheet, which only displays the text nodes in the XML document.
As a workaround, go to View > View Source in the Safari menu bar to see the full XML of the metadata document. Also, selecting File > Save and choosing XML Files as the file type, will correctly save the XML metadata file with all the markup intact.
