Installing Using GUI Mode

This section describes how to install ALDSP using the GUI mode on Microsoft Windows and supported UNIX and Linux-based platforms.

To install ALDSP in GUI mode:

  1. Launch the GUI installer.
  2. On Microsoft Windows-based systems:

    1. Navigate to the folder to which you downloaded the ALDSP installer using Windows Explorer.
    2. Double-click the installer executable file. For example:
    3. aldsp_300_win32.exe

      On UNIX and Linux-based systems, do the following:

    4. Verify that the console attached to the machine on which you are installing the software supports a Java-based GUI.
    5. Open a command window, and change (cd) to the directory to which you downloaded the ALDSP installer file.
    6. Start the installer in a new shell by entering the following:
    7. sh filename.bin

      where filename.bin is the name of the ALDSP installation program specific to your platform. For example, enter the following to start the Solaris version of the ALDSP installation program:

      sh aldsp_300_solaris32.bin

      The installer application welcomes you to install ALDSP, as illustrated in Figure 2-2.

    A warning message is displayed under two conditions:

    • When a previously installed copy of ALDSP is found. In this case, you must uninstall ALDSP before installing the product again. (For details see Uninstalling ALDSP..)
    • When WebLogic Platform 9.2 is not found in the specified BEA home directory. Verify that the specified directory has a WebLogic Platform 9.2 installation. If not, exit the ALDSP installation and install WebLogic Platform 9.2 before proceeding.
    • A screen appears enabling you to choose the type of installation, as illustrated in Figure 2-4.
