Oracle Fusion Middleware (FMW) 11g Web-Tier information can be obtained from the following:

<Note 1304604.1> Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Web-Tier FAQ

The purpose of this document is to outline the installation and configuration of an FMW 11g Web-Tier where products are installed with FMW Control as an administration utility. There are two different end goals for an FMW 11g Web-Tier installation, depending on your needs and requirements:



The second approach requires additional steps during installation and configuration, but subsequently allows for easier GUI-based administration. There have been some doc bugs filed to correct and clarify the steps. The Documentation and Installer has an "Install+Configure" step which is intended to do everything. There is a problem (bug filed) in this process and the proper Enterprise Manager and Java Required Files (JRF) domain templates do not get installed by the Web-Tier configuration. This document discusses the high-level install and configuration steps for the second approach, installing for the intent of using Fusion Middleware Control to adminstrer Oracle HTTP Server and/or Oracle Web Cache. Option 1 below takes the place of the "Install+Configure". from the bugs filed, it has been made not feasible to fix the issue allowing a straight install+config. Other options are used depending on your circumstance, as described.


An Oracle Web-Tier should be installed in its own Middleware home. Many other FMW installations automatically install an OHS and you should use that OHS for your needs. It has been common to mistakenly install another Web-Tier unnecessarily. If you need a separate OHS it is only supported to install in a separate Middleware home, preferably a separate machine as is typical in a reverse-proxy scenario. The exception is in option 2, where it is documented and tested together where it is planned to maintain the same level of patching throughout the life cycle. You do not want to have error correction support end just because you cannot apply a patch set in your environment with another product which did not release a patch set. SOA and Web-Tier are two which follow the same schedule. OBIEE and Web-Tier are an example which do not. (The OBIEE installs its own OHS, too).
