Oracle Database Configuration Assistant failed

I am installing Oracle 9i Personal Edition on Windows 98.  I am letting the runInstaller create my DB.  After the software is installed, the runInstaller try to run the Oracle Database Configuration Assistant.  It fails with the following messages.  How do I fix it?

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/inprise/vbroker/CORBA/Object
     at oracle.sysman.assistants.dbca.backend.Host.<init>(Host.java:437)Exception in thread "main"
     at oracle.sysman.assistants.dbca.ui.UIHost.<init>(UIHost.java:151)
     at oracle.sysman.assistants.dbca.ui.ProgressOnlyHost.<init>(ProgressOnlyHost.java:72)
     at oracle.sysman.assistants.dbca.Dbca.getHost(Dbca.java:123)
     at oracle.sysman.assistants.dbca.Dbca.execute(Dbca.java:82)
     at oracle.sysman.assistants.dbca.Dbca.main(Dbca.java:144)

Thanks, Sheila

Hi baileys,

Check if the product is certified for windows 98.
If yes, then it might need some additional patch before running the DB configuration.

The way I understand the install procedures, Oracle loads a java virsual machine.

I think that Personal Oracle 9i is not certified to run on Windows 98.

To check certified combinations please click:
Product Lifecycle button on the left toolbar.
Next click on Certification button
Click on the certifications by Product
Click on 'Oracle Server'
Click on 'Oracle Server-Personal Edition'

I downloaded from the Oracle site, the Personal Oracle 9i version for Windows 98.

baileys is right. if you go to OTN, you can find "Oracle9i Personal Edition Release 9.0.1.1.0 for Microsoft Windows 98" = A91514-01.zip. I think metalink is out of date or OTN has a bad link. It's not the NT version that he downloaded, because that comes on 3 CDs.

There is an iTAR with the same problem 213864.995 where they said it was a certification problem. I do wonder what the heck is in this file.

Check that you have met all of Oracles prerequisits. Perhaps you do not have a patch or something is not configured correctly in the O/S. There should be a readme with the version (I'm not going to d/l 500+M to check tho :0 ).

Your next bet is to go to OTN and explain to them what we have discovered.

I have the Java 2 Standard sdk version 1.3.1 loaded.  Do you think I need the Java 2 Enterprise sdk loaded?  I am asking this because the error message is aborting on a COBRA object.

Do I need to unload the Standard sdk before I load the Enterprise sdk?

I have solved my problem.  When I was installing Oracle, I was selecting the "Typical" option.  This option does not work.  The last time I tried to install Oracle, I selected the "Custom" option and made sure that the J2EE was loaded.  THIS WORKED!!!!!  I now have an Oracle Database on my system to learn JDBC.
