    OSB Express - Web Tool failure


      I have attempted installs of the latest OSB and OSB Express, for trialling the mechanics of the software.

      I can get both installations to work, via setting up everything within 'obtool': however, I suffer repeated failures of the Apache component within the Express Version. Within OSB Standard it works fine.

      The output from the observiced.log is as follows:

      This is running on OEL 5 (2.6.18-194.el5PAE) 32-bit.

      I've had an SR open with Oracle Support since 29-April-2011 on this issue, with no response whatsoever. Pretty poor - approaching 5 months...

      Anyone else encountered this with OSB Express?

          I would recommend you utilize the current version of software which is OSB

          There is absolutely no technical difference between OSB and OSB Express...It is the same software...the difference is the licensing restrictions / agreement.

            Hi Donna,

            Many thanks for your prompt reply.

            I thought there was possibly some other "nuance" to the software, given that the OTN download page offers a lower version that specifically states "Express".

            On the first "Downloads" section, it almost suggests that each version is available at, but when you click the download link for Express you get taken to yet another download page that separates up a multitude of different download versions into "Normal" and "Express" versions - and yet the Express versions all appear at only version...

            Quite confusing!

            I'll default back to the release that doesn't specifically state "Express", as you suggest...


            Thanks again!

            - Tony.
