Here is a great tutorial published by Deepesh M Divakaran:
Based on the directions from the PDF in the Oracle Installation Downloads, and other websites following are the steps done
*Before you start with anything, Please Turn OFF your Antivirus and Firewalls
*For Microsoft Windows VISTA or Windows 7 Users, you need to Turn Off UAC (User Access Control), and stop the firewall.
*You may also want to have a look at the Installation Methods for Windows Vista in this website.
- Download the Standalone Oracle Zip files from http://edelivery.oracle.com
- Use the following criteria to search
- Select the E9 Applications – 8.98 Tools media pack as shown above.
- Download the V14837-01_1of2.zip: 1.3G, V14837-01_2of2.zip: 1.01G as shown below
- Unzip the 2 zip files into a temporary directory say “C:\E9Standalone\TEMP”
- Create Directories – “C:\Oracle\E1Local”
- Start the EnterpriseOne install by running the “C:\E9Standalone\TEMP\Installmanager.EXE”
- Once Local Oracle instance is installed, restart the system.
- Again restart the Installation (as mentioned in step 4), and it will complete itself with ease, It may give us an error that JDK/ Java compiler was not installed. But Ignore it and go ahead.
- Once the Setup is completed we will have to edit the “tnsnames.ora” file only if we already have earlier instances of Oracle server/client on the machine (C:\Oracle\E1Local\Network\ADMIN\tnsnames.ora)
- So to retrieve the Earlier instance, we need to edit the tnsnames.ora file to include the server paths of the earlier instance (e.g. TEST & PRODUCTION). As far as information gathered, the original or old tnsnames.ora does not hold good, as a new tnsnames.ora was created by the E1 Local instance.
- Download JDK 188.8.131.52 from here or you may also download J2SE JDK 1.5.0_XX from the java.sun.com site. The Support and downloads for JDK 1.5.0 has been stopped from Nov 3rd 2009 in the Sun website.
- Install the JDK into a folder in C: (say C:\TEMP\JDK)
- Once the Java setup finished, copy the directories bin, include, jre, & lib into the “C:\E900\System\JDK” directory. You may have to create the “JDK” directory in the path. Also copy the same folders into “C:\E900\system\oc4j\system”
- Now Copy the “C:\E900\DEMO\ini\sbf\jdbj.ini” file into the windows folder.
- Similarly, edit the “jde.ini” file in the windows folder to include
- BDSEC=ROBIN in the [DB SYSTEM SETTINGS] section
- Also change the “StartAppServer=IMME” to “StartAppServer=ONDEMAND” . This disables the Webserver start as we load the E9 Client.
DO THIS ONLY IF YOU FEEL THAT E1 LOADING IS SLOW.
- Copy the ojdbc5.jar file from “C:\E9Standalone\TEMP\ThirdParty\WebDevFeature\JDBC” into the “C:\E900\system\OC4J\j2ee\home\lib” and “C:\E900\MISC” folder.
- Run the OH4A1013_setup.exe for the web server located in “C:\E9Standalone\TEMP\ThirdParty\WebDevFeature”.
- Make sure the Registry is updated correctly for the JDBC driver using REGEDIT at the following location: “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JDEdwards\HTML” and WebServer should be pointing to “C:\E900\MISC”
- Once completed, Restart the Computer, and now we are ready to login.
- The Oracle Guide itself says that we need to wait for atleast 30 secs before logging in. So once the Login screen comes, go for a coffee. Come back type in “demo” as the password and then login.
- Once logged in, again wait for few secs (30 s), before we launch the Web E1 via TOOLS – ENTERPRISEONE MENU.
- Make it a point that you read the 9_0_with_8_98_Standalone_Installation_rev1.pdf file included in the installation folder.
- The OC4J Application server manager console web site is http://localhost:8888/em/
You may login into the same using user: oc4jadmin password: oc4jadmin
- You can access the E9 Standalone Web client from any other system in your network. The Steps for the same are given here.
