1.3 System Requirements and Specifications

1.4 Memory Requirements

Oracle Fusion Middleware memory requirements for installation, configuration, and runtime are as follows:

1.5.2.1 Certification Information for Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g R1 with Oracle Database 11.2.0.1

If you choose to configure Oracle Internet Directory with Database vault, do the following:

  1. Apply patch 8897382 to fix bug 8897382.

    Note:

    the following workaround is required only if the Oracle Fusion Middleware version is 11.1.1.1.0 (11gR1). This issue will be fixed in 11.1.1.2.0.

  2. 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;/

1.5.2.2 Excel Export Issue on Windows Vista Client

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.

1.5.2.3 Restrictions on Specific Browsers

1.5.2.3.1 Unable to View the Output of a JSPX Page in Internet Explorer 7

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.

1.5.2.3.2 Java Plugin for Discoverer Plus Not Downloaded Automatically on Firefox

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.

1.5.3 Upgrading Sun JDK From 1.6.0_07 to 1.6.0_11

For information, see "Section 2.1.5.3, "Upgrading Sun JDK in the Oracle Home Directory."

1.5.4 JMSDELIVERYCOUNT Is Not Set Properly

When using AQ JMS with Oracle Database 11.2.0.1, JMXDELIVERYCOUNT is not set correctly.

The workaround is to apply patch 9932143 to Oracle Database 11.2.0.1. For more information, contact Oracle Support.

1.5.5 Viewer Plugin Required On Safari 4 To View Raw XML Source

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.
