How to Install Using the Command-Line Installer

By default, the command-line installer installs all components of the Oracle Developer Studio 12.5 software silently in the default installation directory /opt.

You can select which components you want to install by specifying the --install-components option when you start the installer.

Use the --print-components-description option or see Command-Line Options for the Command-Line Installer for a list of the component names you can specify with this option.

You can start the installer with the --installation-location directory option to install the components in a directory of your choice. For a complete list of the valid command-line options when starting the command-line installer, see Command-Line Options for the Command-Line Installer.

  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

    Tip  -  If you want the installer to generate a zip file containing a distribution of the IDE, dbxtool, and Code Analyzer configured for a desktop operating system, include the --generate-desktop-distr option in the following step. The generated zip file is placed in the lib directory in your Oracle Developer Studio installation.
  3. Start the installer in non-interactive mode.
    # ./developerstudio.sh --non-interactive

    The installer runs silently and returns your prompt when installation is complete. For details about the installation, see the log file in the /.nbi/log directory.

    The installer also 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 because 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 just use a 64-bit Java for the installer to run correctly. The installation is complete even if you get the Java warning.
