    Oracle AS 10g Installation Issue

    Fahd.Mirza
      Hello,
      I want to deploy Oracle Forms and Oracle Reports 10g on Oracle Application Server 10g on Red Hat Linux AS 4.

      Is it possible that I just install the Oracle Forms and Oracle Reports from Business Intelligence and not install metadata repository or OID?

      regards

          Yes. See http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/ias/htdocs/101202.html and look for Forms & Reports Services Standalone.

            Paul, Thanks for your help.

            Do I also need to install Oracle HTTP Server with Oracle Forms and Reports Standalone?

            How would my users access the application. I really appreciate your help.

              No, it's included.
              How would my users access the application.
              From browser, of course, for example http://machine_name:port/forms/frmservlet?config=<application>

              where application is a configuration entry in formsweb.cfg file.

                Paul, things are pretty much clear now. Just few questions, if you please:


                I have got 1000 users (50 concurrent) users, which will be using forms and reports services. Should I install forms service and reports services on separate machines? I am calling reports from forms, so how would I configure that?

                Can you please share any performance tips regarding the setting up of Forms and Report Services, from your experience?

                My both machines have 4 GB of RAM, and I am running Redhat Linux AS 4 32 bit. Will that be enough for my users?

                thanks and best regards

                  I normally use two machines with everything on them, and running in load balancing via Web Cache.
                  I am calling reports from forms, so how would I configure that?
                  In what sense ? do you mean how to call reports from forms ?

                  For 50 concurrent users, yes.

                    Paul, I am so grateful for very valuable answers.

                    Can you please point me towards some good article as how to configure load balancing via Web Cache?

                    best regards

                      Paul, In addition to my previous question that:


                      Can you please point me towards some good article as how to configure load balancing via Web Cache?


                      Please tell me that do you use a dedicated machine for your OracleAS Web Cache? I mean on Machine A and Machine B, you install Oracle Forms and Report Services, and Machine C is the OracleAS Web Cache, which does the load balancing for Machine A and Machine B?

                        You can find information on Application Server Web Cache Administrator's Guide http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B14099_19/caching.1012/b14046/toc.htm

                            No, I normally use two machines only, A and B, and machine A is the Web Cache "manager".

                            Users URLs always point to machine A, which distributes connections between A and B.
