  2. For JRE location on 32 bit machines use JDK or JRockit(under MW_HOME)  and for 64 bit Machine use pre-install 64 bit JDK location (Sun or JRockit)
  3. For any installation issues check logs at oraInventory/logs where location of oraInventory directory mentioned in oraInst.loc.

.[oim@OracleXperts Disk1]# pwd


[oim@OracleXperts Disk1]# ls

doc    install    runInstaller    setup.exe    stage

[oim@OracleXperts Disk1]#./runInstaller -jreLoc /oracle/apps/idm11g/MWHOME/jdk160_18/jre/

  • oracle_common – This Oracle_Home contains Java Required Files ()
  • Oracle_SOA1 – This Oracle_Home contains SOA related Files
  • Oracle_IDM1– This Oracle_Home contains IDAM (oam, oim, oaam, oapm & oin) related Files.
