New Release Information
The following documents provide information to get started with a specific new release.
The following announces the release which installs Oracle Forms and Reports with an option to configure with OAM 11g as a single sign on solution:
<Note 1503701.1> Announcing Oracle Forms & Reports 11g Release 2 (11.1.2)
For Oracle Forms and Reports Release 1 (11.1.1), it is required to either use a pre-existing SSO 10g installation (already in use in your topology) or select the standalone use case as described in this document.
This document was written for the earlier releases and its goal is to provide the streamlined steps to install and configure only Oracle Forms and Reports 11g within the Oracle Web Logic and Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) framework. It starts with an 126.96.36.199 installation, which should be updated immediately to the newest 11.1.1.x. (See <Note 1370970.1>). The steps provide an overview and summary of the installation for a subset of an "Oracle Portal, Forms, Reports and Discoverer" (PFRD) installation.
This should not be considered as a sole source for the installation and configuration of your Forms and Reports. While the example here is for a Windows 32 bit installation, the same steps should apply, (with minor exceptions), to other platforms. In most cases, the information and steps contained herein come directly from the Installation Guide.
This document assumes you have read and followed the system requirements for the PFRD 188.8.131.52 installation:
- The Certification Guide, System Requirements Guide, Installation Guide, and Release Notes should be used for all installations. There may be information or instructions specific to your circumstance.
- The steps outlined in this document apply to new installations of both version 184.108.40.206.0 and 220.127.116.11.0. Oracle strongly encourages you not to install 18.104.22.168.0. If you install 22.214.171.124.0 you can easily upgrade to 126.96.36.199.0.
- The screen shot images in this document are from an 188.8.131.52.0 installation. In particular, the WLS Server images indicate 10.3.1.0. Since we recommend a new 184.108.40.206.0 installation in this document, you will be installing Weblogic 10.3.2+ (depending on installation choices). The images you see should be identical to those in this document except for the version reflected at the top.
- When choosing the Builders during installation, note that the Builders may have a separate certification on a given platform, (e.g. 32/64 bit). For details on platform support, see the Certification Guide before starting an installation.
