Cache Server and Admin Server ulimit Requirement

Before starting Cache Server and Admin Server in Oracle Web Cache, increase the data segment to 650 MB with the following command:

ulimit -d 650000

Deploying EJB in a Database

To deploy EJB in a database, increase the JAVA_POOL_SIZE and SHARED_POOL_SIZE initialization parameters to 50 MB and set the LARGE_POOL_SIZE initialization parameter to 0 in the initSID.ora file. After setting these parameters, restart the database.

Oracle Home Path

There are limits of length of CLASSPATH values with JDK. If the Oracle home path is long and there are many wrapper.classpath entries in the jserv.conf file, it might cause problems with the jserv process. The workaround is to shorten Oracle home path.
