About Installing the Siebel Web Client or Siebel Tools

This chapter describes how to install Siebel Web Clients, Siebel Tools, and the Siebel Sample Database, with specified Siebel language packs. In this chapter, the term Siebel Web Client refers to either the Mobile Web Client or the Developer Web Client.

The language that the installer displays is the one that corresponds to the current regional settings on the installation client computer.

The software that is installed on the user's computer for Siebel Mobile Web Client and Developer Web Client is identical. A single installer provides the software necessary to install and run either of these Siebel Web Client types. For general information about these client types, see Siebel Deployment Planning Guide. Information in this guide about installing the Siebel Web Client refers to these two client types. (Siebel Developer Web Client installation is covered with the Siebel Mobile Web Client.)

Each Siebel Web Client is designed to be used within a single Siebel Enterprise. To support multiple Siebel Enterprises on a single computer for testing purposes, install separate Siebel client instances in separate directories.

Installing the Siebel Web Client or Siebel Tools is a two-step process, where you first install the base release, Siebel CRM version 8.1.1 or version 8.2.2, and then install the current release, Siebel CRM version or version

For Siebel Sample Database, you install only the current release, Siebel CRM version or version

Before installing, review all documented requirements. The specific requirements for Siebel Mobile Web Client and Siebel Developer Web Client also depend on whether you are deploying Siebel CRM applications using Siebel Open UI (recommended) or high interactivity (the default). For high interactivity, see also the browser configuration information in Siebel System Administration Guide.

It is recommended to install the Siebel Developer Web Client with Siebel Tools. The Siebel Developer Web Client has specific requirements for connectivity to the enterprise database. For information about the relational database management systems (RDBMS) that may require installation on the Siebel client computers on which you run Siebel Developer Web Clients, see the Certifications tab on My Oracle Support. These products are not provided by Oracle; you must obtain them based on your database-connection requirements.
