Basic and Advanced Types of Oracle BI Installation
During the installation, you are asked to choose an Installation Type. The selection in the installer Installation Type screen is based on the type of web server on which Oracle BI is to be deployed.
NOTE: An application server is also required for deployment of the Systems Management component, which is installed along with Oracle BI components such as the Oracle BI Server. See the topic Deployment on Web Application Servers.
The choices are:
- Basic Installation Type
Choose the Basic Installation type if one of the following is true:
- You are evaluating the Oracle Business Intelligence product.
- The Web Server is either IIS or a J2EE Application Server other than Oracle Application Server.
The Basic Installation type deploys components in standalone Oracle Containers for J2EE (OC4J) or in Microsoft IIS.
The Basic installation type installs a demonstration application that includes a repository (paint.rpd), presentation catalog, and XML data source.
The Basic Installation type provides no security—the
MINIMUM_PASSWORD_LENGTH parameter in the NQSConfig.INI file is set to 0.
The Basic installation type deploys Systems Management into Oracle Containers for J2EE (OC4J). See the topic Deploying Oracle BI on All Other Web Servers.
- Advanced Installation Type
Choose the Advanced Installation type if you are deploying Oracle BI with Oracle Application Server 10.1.3.1 or later.
The Advanced Installation type is more secure—the
MINIMUM_PASSWORD_LENGTH parameter in the NQSConfig.INI file is set to 8.
The Advanced Installation type deploys Systems Management into the Oracle Application Server. See the topic Deploying Oracle BI on Oracle Application Server.
