    Installing & configuring Oracle AS Portal

    Vyachesav

      Hello, guys!
      I'm reading now the book from Rick Greenvald and James Milbery in that is described how to install the Oracle AS Portal. I was kinda confused.
      There aren't links where I can get distributives and generaly the material is kinda outdated (there is described Oracle 9iAS Portal). Could you
      direct me to a suitable sources (manuals, downloads) please?

      I've also found this tutorial: How to install Oracle Application Server 10g and SP3 - YouTube, but I'm not sure that this is suitable information.
      Thanks in advance.

              Hi,

               

              As the version 9iAS is de-supported since long we request you to create an SR with Oracle Shipment Team so that they would send you the requested version of iAS.

               

              Also in-case of any bugs which would reported with this version there may not be any fixes.So we request you to please install the latest version which 11g.

               

              Note:Oracle always recommends its customers to be on the latest version so that the latest version would have the issue fixed in it.

               

              Regards,

              Prakash.

                Thanks a lot! I'd like to be on the latest version. While searching through the net I've found this source Oracle Portal 11g Downloads</title><meta name="Title" content="Oracle Portal 11g Downloads"… .
                I guess this is suitable in my case.
                I've understood, that I should act according to following algorythm (please correct me if I'm not right):
                1. Download, install, and configure the Oracle Fusion Middleware software.

                2. Install Oracle Portal, Forms, Reports, and Discoverer 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0).
                3. O
                btain Patch 13517084 from My Oracle Support.

                  3)Download and install weblogic 10.3.6  which could be any of the following files ".bin or .exe or  .jar" file depending upon the OS platform.

                    Thanks a lot for help!
                    1) I work under Windws  x64. For this OS Oracle DB 11.2.0.3 download is with the notification (on this page: Oracle Database on Windows Downloads ):

                    "Note: 11.2.0.3 is the latest full installation of Oracle Database. My Oracle Support access, available

                    with an Oracle support contract, is required to download it. All other downloads below are free with an OTN account."
                    What is the Oracle support contract? I suggest, that my company should have Oracle support contract. But, what can I do if I haven't it?
                    What else versions are acceptable upon other conditions that you've described in previous message?

                     

                    In secton "My Oracle support cmmunity" appears this message: "Access to this place or content is restricted. If you think this is a mistake, please contact your administrator or the person who directed you here."

                     

                    2) Is the Data Base  Express Edition suitable as well?


                    3) Is Oracle text included in Oracle DB distributive?

                     

                    Regards,

                    Vyacheslav.

                      Hi Vyacheslav,

                       

                      In order to install you need to have Full Database enterprise edition.In case if your company have contract then request you to check with Oracle SAN for the contract details.

                       

                      Oracle text is included in the Enterprise edition.

                       

                      Regards,

                      Prakash.
