How to Install Using the Graphical Installer on Oracle Solaris 10 or Linux

The graphical installer lets you choose the installation directory and select which components of the Oracle Developer Studio 12.5 software you want to install. For a complete list of the valid command-line options when starting the graphical installer, see Command-Line Options for the Graphical Installer.

Before You Begin

Make sure you have done the preliminary tasks before installing. See the Installation Tasks on Oracle Solaris 10 and Linux.

  1. Become superuser (root) or privileged user.
    Password: root-password
  2. Change to the directory where you saved the downloaded distribution, using one of the following commands:
    # cd download-directory/OracleDeveloperStudio12.5-solaris-sparc-pkg
    # cd download-directory/OracleDeveloperStudio12.5-solaris-x86-pkg
    # cd download-directory/OracleDeveloperStudio12.5-linux-x86-rpm
  3. Start the installer script.
    # ./developerstudio.sh

    The installer analyzes the system to ensure the Java version is correct. If the Java version found on your path is not Java version 1.7.0_25 or newer you see a warning but the installer might still be able to work. However you must have Java version 1.7.0_25 or newer to use the Java-based tools such as the IDE and Performance Analyzer. If you are on a 64-bit system, you must use a 64-bit Java for the installer to work correctly.

    Tip  -  If an appropriate Java version is available but not on your path, you can click Cancel and restart with the option developerstudio.sh --javahome path-to-java to avoid the warning.
  4. Click Next to proceed.

    The Oracle Developer Studio Installer gives you the option of customizing your installation by selecting which components of the software to install.

  5. Select individual components you want to install or all components and click Next to proceed.
  6. Type or browse to the directory path where you want to install the software.

    The default installation directory is /opt.

  7. (Optional) If you do not want to create links, deselect the option Create Symbolic Links in /usr/bin.

    The links make it easy to find the compilers and tools because /usr/bin is on all users' paths by default.

  8. (Optional) If you want to install the software in all zones, deselect the option Install Oracle Developer Studio Software to Current Zone Only.

    This option displays when you are running the installer on a system that has zones. By default, the software installs to the current zone only. When you run the installer in the global zone, installing in the current zone makes the installed product visible only in the global zone.

  9. (Optional) If you want to generate a zip file distribution of the IDE, dbxtool, and Code Analyzer configured for a desktop operating system, select Generate Desktop Distribution During Installation.

    The generated zip file desktop-distribution.zip is placed in the lib directory in your Oracle Developer Studio installation.

  10. Click Next to proceed to the Summary page.

    On the Summary page, verify that the list of components to be installed is correct and that you have adequate space on your system for installation.

  11. Click Install to start the installation.

    The installer shows progress of the installation and informs you when the installation is complete.

  12. Click Finish to exit the installer.
