6 Installing Content SDK

This chapter explains how to install the Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management (BRM) Content SDK software.

Before you read this document, you should be familiar with Content SDK concepts. See "Understanding BRM Content SDK".


If you upgrade from a previous version of Content SDK, you must upgrade to the latest version of Content Manager too.

System Requirements

Content SDK is available for the HP-UX IA64, Solaris, AIX, and Linux operating systems.

Software Requirements

Before installing Content SDK, you must install:

Information Requirements

Obtain the following information from your billing provider:

  • The host name and port number of the billing provider's host.

  • Your login name and password on the billing provider's host.

  • The billing provider's access method (PCP, HTTP, or HTTPS).

  • If you are using an HTTP proxy with your HTTP connection:

    • The proxy server host name

    • The proxy server port number

    See "HTTPS Connections".

Installing Content SDK


If you have already installed the product, features that are already installed cannot be reinstalled without uninstalling them first. To reinstall a feature, uninstall it and then install it again.

To install Content SDK:

  1. Download the software to a temporary directory (temp_dir).


    • If you download to a Windows workstation, use FTP to copy the .bin file to a temporary directory on your UNIX server.

    • You must increase the heap size used by the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) before running the installation program to avoid ”Out of Memory” error messages in the log file. See "Increasing heap size to avoid ”Out of Memory” error messages" in BRM Installation Guide for more information.

  2. Go to the directory where you installed the Third-Party package and source the source.me file.


    You must source the source.me file to proceed with installation, otherwise ”suitable JVM not found” and other error messages appear.

    Bash shell:

    source source.me.sh

    C shell:

    source source.me.csh
  3. Go to the temp_dir directory and enter this command:


    where platform is the operating system name.


    You can use the -console parameter to run the installation in command-line mode. To enable a graphical user interface (GUI) installation, install a GUI application such as X Windows and set the DISPLAY environment variable before you install the software.
  4. Follow the instructions displayed during installation. The default installation directory for Content SDK is opt/portal/7.5.


    The installation program does not prompt you for the installation directory if BRM or Content SDK is already installed on the machine and automatically installs the package at the BRM_Home location.
  5. Go to the directory where you installed the Content SDK package and source the source.me file:

    Bash shell:

    source source.me.sh

    C shell:

    source source.me.csh
  6. Go to the BRM_Home/setup directory and run the pin_setup script, where BRM_Home is the directory in which you installed the BRM software.


    The pin_setup script starts all required BRM processes.

Your Content SDK installation is now complete.
