You might have guessed from my last post, I was feeling a little bit deflated (insert fat joke here) yesterday morning.
I cheered myself up by spending the day in my hotel room doing installations.
On Friday evening the new Fusion Middleware 12.2.1 stack was released, so spent the day playing with it. I’ve written some articles, but they will need some tidying up when I get home. There are definitely some things I want to change.
- Oracle WebLogic Server (WLS) 12cR2 (12.2.1) Installation on Oracle Linux 6 and 7
- Oracle Forms and Reports 12c (12.2.1) Installation on Oracle Linux 6 and 7
- WebLogic Server 12cR2 (12.2.1) : ADF Application Development Runtime – Repository Configuration Utility (RCU)
The Forms and Reports Services installation is very different compared to the previous version. After completing the WebLogic installation, you have to install the FRS software, run the RCU, then create the FRS domain as three separate steps. In the previous version, the installation and configuration of FRS was a single step. If you’ve configured WebLogic 12.1 clustered domains, it will feel very familiar. If not, it’s probably going to mess with your mind a little at first.
I’ve done the FRS domain creation also, but the configuration of the web tier is not complete. If you want to see what I’ve got so far you can check it out here, but as the warning says, it’s a work in progress.
The OPMN stuff is out of the door and NodeManager has stepped in. If I don’t have time before, I will work through everything when I get home and knock them into shape.
I reserve the right to throw this all away and start again when I get home and spend more time on it.
