ADF 11g Silent Installation
This article demonstrates how to perform a silent installation of Application Development Framework (ADF) 11g (126.96.36.199) on Oracle Linux.
Download the ADF software.
- ADF (188.8.131.52) (ofm_appdev_generic_184.108.40.206.0_disk1_1of1.zip)
This article makes the following assumptions.
- You already have a suitable WebLogic server installation.
- You have downloaded the ADF software listed above and placed it in the "/u01/software" directory.
Unzip the ADF software into a suitable directory.
mkdir -p /u01/software/adf cd /u01/software/adf unzip ../ofm_appdev_generic_220.127.116.11.0_disk1_1of1.zip
Set up the environment. This is not really necessary as we are specifying all the important information in the installation command itself.
export MW_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/middleware export WLS_HOME=$MW_HOME/wlserver_10.3 export WL_HOME=$WLS_HOME # Set to the appropriate JAVA_HOME. export JAVA_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/jdk1.7.0_79 export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH
Create Response File
The "Disk1/stage/Response" directory contains sample response files to use with a silent installation. The samples contain comments and extra newline characters which are not necessary. The only setting we must amend is the
Create a response file called "/u01/software/adf.rsp" with the following contents.
[ENGINE] Response File Version=18.104.22.168.0 [GENERIC] SPECIFY_DOWNLOAD_LOCATION=false SKIP_SOFTWARE_UPDATES=true SOFTWARE_UPDATES_DOWNLOAD_LOCATION= MIDDLEWARE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/middleware APPSERVER_TYPE=WLS [SYSTEM] [APPLICATIONS] [RELATIONSHIPS]
You also need to specify an Oracle inventory location. Create a file called "/u01/software/oraInst.loc" with the following contents.
ADF Silent Installation
Run the installer in silent mode, specifying the response file, inventory location and the JRE location.
cd /u01/software/adf/Disk1 ./runInstaller -silent -ResponseFile /u01/software/adf.rsp -invPtrLoc /u01/software/oraInst.loc -jreLoc /u01/app/oracle/jdk1.7.0_79
