    969358
      Could someone explain for me what I am suposed to fill in BEA_HOME to be able to harvast from Eclipse to OER? I am trying to follow this blog "http://brajeshde.blogspot.com.br/2012/01/my-first-experience-of-osb11gr1ps2.html" and I have no idea what is the purpose of BEA_HOME? Should I point to weblogic home?

          point bea home to your installaion home folder

          for example.

          installaion is at the location " C:\weblogic\11g_ps5\"
          you will see following folders under it
          bin,
          ORACLE_SOA,
          userprojects
          ...
          ..
          ..

          in the above case BEA_HOME=C:\weblogic\11g_ps5\
          ORACLE_HOME=C:\weblogic\11g_ps5\ORACLE_SOA

            What is the corect setting to be point by BEA_HOME enviroment variable?
            My filesystem is:

            While reading OER Guide, I read that I should point to my OSB HOme which in my case is C:\Oracle\Middleware\Oracle_OSB1. Other blog tells me that I should point to WebLogic home which in my case is C:\Oracle\Middleware\wlserver_10.3. And even other blog tell to point to the home where is all my Oracle tolls which in my case should be C:\Oracle\Middleware. What is the purpose to set this system variable? I can run weblogic, OSB and OER without that. The only reason I setted BEA_HOME was to use harvester and untill now, apparently there are no diference what the path I set the variable with.

              Hi,
              in your Case following are the properties
              ===================================================
              BEA_HOME: C:\Oracle\Middleware

              OSB_HOME:=C:\Oracle\Middleware\Oracle_OSB1

              SOA_HOME:=C:\Oracle\Middleware\Oracle_SOA1

              ORACLE_HOME: you can any of the "OSB/SOA" home based on the need.
              ===================================================

              Why do we need this?
              Especially when you are working on following
              1. WLST scripts
              2. Setting and running some of the b2b related en-queue or de-queuing message from the backend
              and many cases as of now i can think only above 2.

              NOTE: if you really not interested on backend scirpt execution/harvesting/purging etc you don't need worry about these parameters
