This is a decision flow chart that helps a user determine which type of backup is appropriate for a given state of the Oracle Fusion Middleware. The first state box is "Full Offline Backup? The next state box has Oracle Fusion Middleware running. The decision diamond below asks if Major Changes have been made. If yes, a full offline backup is the choice. Returning to the major changes diamond, if no, the next decision diamond is administrative changes. If yes, an online backup of runtime artifacts is the choice. If no, the arrow returns to the Oracle Fusion Middleware running state.
