About Adding Components to a Quick Start Installation

To add Oracle B2B, Oracle Healthcare, and Oracle Managed File Transfer to your Quick Start installation, you need to download their independent installers These installers are discussed in Installing Oracle B2B, Oracle SOA Suite for Healthcare Integration, or Oracle Managed File Transfer for Quick Start.

Oracle Business Activity Monitoring and Oracle Enterprise Scheduler do not have separate installers. The compact domain can be configured for these components directly in the domain configuration wizard. Using the domain configuration wizard to update a compact domain is covered in Updating a Compact Domain.

Tip:

To minimize the number of times you have to invoke the Repository Creation Utility and the Fusion Middleware Configuration Wizard, run all installers for all of the components that you want to add before launching the RCU or the Configuration Wizard. Each installer will activate a set of product-specific schemas and provide a set of product-specific configuration templates.

You may also want a runtime environment that can run applications using Oracle Stream Analytics components. This process is reviewed in Understanding Oracle Stream Analytics Design Time.

Installing Oracle B2B, Oracle SOA Suite for Healthcare Integration, or Oracle Managed File Transfer for Quick Start

This section describes how to add Oracle B2B, Oracle SOA Suite for Healthcare Integration, or Oracle Managed File Transfer to your Quick Start distribution.

Installing Oracle B2B for Quick Start

This section covers how to install Oracle B2B for Quick Start. Make sure you understand the installation options for Oracle B2B, as described in About Oracle B2B.

Activating a Limited Oracle B2B Interface without a Full Installation

If you are adding components to an existing compact domain, see Updating a Compact Domain.

Updating a Compact Domain

This section describes the actions you can take to reconfigure your compact domain to add new components.

To add Oracle B2B, Healthcare, or Managed File Transfer, you must have run their separate installers as described in Installing Oracle B2B, Oracle SOA Suite for Healthcare Integration, or Oracle Managed File Transfer for Quick Start before proceeding to the following steps:

Launching the Domain Configuration Wizard

Go to ORACLE_HOME/oracle_common/common/bin for your Quick Start distribution and launch the configuration wizard.

If you have set the ORACLE_HOME environment variable to your Oracle home, you can enter commands similar to the following examples:

Operating System Command

UNIX

cd $ORACLE_HOME/oracle_common/common/bin
./config.sh

Windows

cd %ORACLE_HOME\oracle_common\common\bin
config.cmd

Then navigate through the following configuration screens.

Selecting the Domain Type and Domain Home Location

On the Configuration Type screen, select Update an existing domain.

In the Domain Location field, select the location of the compact domain that you want to update.

Select the templates for the components you want to add to your installation:

  • Oracle SOA Suite for healthcare integration - 12.2.1.3.0 [soa]

    Note:

    For HIPAA documents, you need to select both the Oracle SOA Suite for healthcare integration - 12.2.1.3.0 [soa] template and Oracle B2B - 12.2.1.3.0 [soa] template.

    For HL7 documents, you only need to select both the Oracle SOA Suite for healthcare integration - 12.2.1.3.0 [soa] template.

  • Oracle B2B - 12.2.1.3.0 [soa]

  • Oracle Managed File Transfer - 12.2.1.3.0 [mft]

  • Oracle Business Activity Manager - 12.2.1.3.0 [soa]

  • Oracle Enterprise Scheduler Service Basic - 12.2.1.3.0 [oracle_common]

  • Oracle Enterprise Manager Plugin for ESS - 12.2.1.3.0 [em]

Specifying the Datasource Configuration Type

Select RCU Data to activate the fields on this screen. All of the fields should auto-populate with the values you specified when you first configured your domain.

Click Get RCU Configuration. The following output in the Connection Result Log indicates that the operation succeeded:

Connecting to the database server...OK
