Command-Line Options for the Command-Line Installer

The following command-line options are valid when you are starting the developerstudio.sh command-line installer.

Create symbolic links in the /usr/bin and /usr/share/man directories to the Oracle Developer Studio 12.5 software and man pages.
Install only in the current zone. When you run the installer in the global zone, this option makes the installed product visible only in that zone.
--extract-installation-data directory
Extract installation data, do not perform installation.
Generate a zip file containing a distribution of the IDE (and the Code Analyzer, if you are installing it) configured for a desktop operating system. The zip file called -desktop-distribution.zip is located in the lib directory of your Oracle Developer Studio installation.
Display information on the options.
Disable system architecture checking (Oracle Solaris based systems only)
--install-components component_name,component_name,...
Install only the specified components. The valid component_names are: c-and-cpp-compilers, code-analyzer-tool, dbx-debugger, dbxtool, dmake, fortran-compiler, oic, performance-and-thread-analysis-tools, performance-library, studio-ide, japanese-localization, and simplified-chinese-localization.
--installation-location directory
Install Oracle Developer Studio software in the specified directory instead of in the default installation directory /opt.
--javahome directory
Use the JDK in directory when running the installer. This option is needed when the installer cannot locate a JDK in a standard location on your system, and you need to point it to one.
Perform runtime libraries only installation.
--locale locale
Override the default locale for the installer with the specified locale. Valid locales are en (English), ja (Japanese), and zh (Simplified Chinese).
Use NFS server installation mode, in which the installer does not check the server for the required Oracle Solaris patches or create symbolic links in the /usr/bin directory.
Start the installer in command-line mode.
Lists the component names you can use with the -install-components option
--silent-logs-dir directory
Write the installer log file to the specified directory silently.
--state state_file .xml
Play back the state file recorded by the graphical installer to silently repeat an installation session. This option lets you install a subset of the product components in command-line mode.
--tempdir directory
By default, the installer extracts temporary data into the /tmp directory. If there is not sufficient space in the /tmp directory on your system, you can specify another directory for the installer to use.
--use-alternative-root directory
Install in the specified root directory instead of the default root directory /. Specify the full path of the directory to use as the alternate root. This option is valid only on systems running Oracle Solaris 10.
Write verbose output to the console.
