This appendix contains screenshots and descriptions for all of the Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle Business Process Management Suite deinstallation screens:

B.1 Welcome

The installer displays this screen when you are about to deinstall one or more Oracle Fusion Middleware software components.

When you use the installer to deinstall your Oracle Fusion Middleware software, the installer removes the software files in the selected Oracle home from disk, updates the Oracle inventory, and performs other operating-specific tasks to remove the components.

Like the Welcome screen that appears when you are about to install a product, the deinstallation Welcome screen contains a navigation pane on the left that summarizes the tasks the installer will help you complete.

Each item in the navigation pane represents a specific installer screen that will prompt you for information required to install the software.

B.2 Deinstall Oracle Home

Use this screen to verify that you have selected the Oracle home that you want to deinstall.

When you click Deinstall, then the installer will begin the process of deinstalling the Oracle home shown on this screen.


Before you click Deinstall, ensure that all processes associated with the selected Oracle home have been stopped.

If you want to save this configuration to a text file (called a response file), click Save. The resulting response file can be used later if you choose to perform the same deinstallation procedure from the command line.

Verify that this is the correct directory, then click Deinstall to continue.

The following warning screen will appear:
