The directory structure is illustrated in Figure B-1.

Note that this example shows the recommended directory structure, as described in "Understanding the Recommended Directory Structure" in Planning an Installation of Oracle Fusion Middleware. Your directory structure may differ slightly based on where you choose to create these directories on your system.
