A Installing OracleAS Developer Kits

OracleAS Developer Kits provide APIs that enable you to develop OracleAS Portal, OracleAS Wireless, XML, and LDAP applications. You use Developer Kits in development environments, not in staging or production environments. Note that the OracleAS Developer Kits do not provide a complete IDE (integrated development environment). If you need an IDE, you can install Oracle JDeveloper, available with Oracle Developer Suite or with all editions of Oracle Application Server.
