This article lists the steps for manual installation of Oracle Text 10gR1, verification and deinstallation of the 10gR1 Text installation.
This information may be of interest to Database Administrators and Support Analysts configuring Oracle 10gR1 for Text.
If you create an Oracle database using the Database Configuration Assistant (DBCA) Text is installed by default and you do not need to perform the installation steps described in this section.
Oracle Text is available for no extra Licensing in all four database editions: Oracle Database Standard Edition One, Oracle Database Standard Edition (SE), Oracle Database Enterprise Edition (EE) and Oracle Database Personal Edition.
*** Note: ***
- You must install Oracle Data Mining (ODM), feature available in Oracle Database Enterprise Edition (EE), before you install Oracle Text in order to use the SVM classifier and the KMEANS clustering. All other functions should work without ODM installed, including RULE classifier and TEXTK clustering. Oracle Text does have a internal dependency on Oracle Data Mining (ODM), option available in Oracle Database Enterprise Edition (EE), due to the SVM classifier and the KMEANS clustering functions. This dependency is supposed to be transparent and therefore does not require Text user to license Data Mining in order to get all the Text features to work.
- Oracle Text makes use of a "Knowledge Base" for English and French, which is loaded from different files provided on the second CD, known as the "Oracle Database 10g Companion CD". The Knowledge Base is required to use any of the theme-based features in Oracle Text. Therefore, if you install from the main CD only, theme functionality will not be available. For information about how to install products from the Companion CD, refer to the "Installing Oracle Database 10g Products from the Companion CD" section.
If you created your database manually or you want to install Text later, then follow these steps.
