Ultrasearch on IBM Websphere Application Server

521405 Newbie
Currently Being Moderated
The requirement is to use Oracle UltraSearch functionality that provides uniform search-and-locate capabilities over multiple repositories.

Existing Environment in Our System
IBM Websphere Application Server in Solaris
Oracle9i database

1. Whether Ultrasearch will work with IBM Websphere Application Server in Solaris or it is only compatible with Oracle9iAS?

2. Currently UltraSearch is not installed in our system. Whether separate patches can be downloaded and installed for UltraSearch?

3. If it is possible in Websphere, What are the java jar files to be installed in Ultraserach in IBM Websphere Application Server.
Pls mention the file names.

4.Whether ultrasearch is enough if it is installed in oracle DB server alone or it should be installed in application server also.

5.Whether OPCA (Oracle Portal Configuration Assistant) from a middle tier(I think only 9iAS has this, what about Websphere?) is required
to install Ultrasearch DB packages into Database.

6. From Ultra Search administration tool, whether all the activities related to Ultrasearch configuration changes can be performed?

    Ultra Search isn't only compatible with OAS. No idea if you can use it with IBM Websphere... The configuration is quite simple, just try to do it...
    2. Currently UltraSearch is not installed in our
    system. Whether separate patches can be downloaded
    and installed for UltraSearch?
    Ultra Search is installed and patched with the database.
    3. If it is possible in Websphere, What are the java
    jar files to be installed in Ultraserach in IBM
    Websphere Application Server.
    Pls mention the file names.
    There is an installation guide that describes what you are looking for. Read it.
    4.Whether ultrasearch is enough if it is installed in
    oracle DB server alone or it should be installed in
    application server also.
    In 9i you have to install an application server to deploy the query and administration interface. With 10g such installation is no more necessary.
    5.Whether OPCA (Oracle Portal Configuration
    Assistant) from a middle tier(I think only 9iAS has
    this, what about Websphere?) is required
    to install Ultrasearch DB packages into
    into Database.
    I never worked with OPCA. Anyway, Ultra Search is a database feature, therefore you don't need other products (except for the query and administration interface).
    6. From Ultra Search administration tool, whether all
    the activities related to Ultrasearch configuration
    changes can be performed?
    Most of them. But not all.

    Can Ultra search configured to Search Sharepoint sites? I've been trying to configure the ultra search to access and search sharepoint sites, but failed. Not sure if this is possible.
