My goal is to test Oracle Beehive, and I am going to test it on Windows Server 2003 R2 (32bit). I just finished installing Windows Server, and now my next step is to install the Oracle database. I need guidance on installing the Oracle database since I have not done this before. I normally work in a Windows environment and use SQL Server.
Here are the Beehive Requirements:
Oracle Beehive requires an existing database with the following characteristics:
+ Supports Oracle Database 11g Release 1 and 2 (18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199)
Enterprise Edition, installed on any supported operating system. Ensure that you
have applied all the patches listed in the section "Patches".
+ Uses character set AL32UTF8 (Unicode)
+ Contains the following standard database components:
– Oracle XML DB
– Oracle interMedia (Oracle Multimedia in Oracle Database 11g)
– Oracle Text
+ Contains Rules Manager and Expression Filter (Rules Manager and Expression
Filter are installed automatically with Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition.
I downloaded "Oracle Database 11g Release 2
Standard Edition, Standard Edition One, and Enterprise Edition" from www.oracle.com
. Here is the direct download link: (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/enterprise-edition/downloads/index.html
Please help me walk through the installation steps so that I install the Oracle database correctly, or if you have a web link that visually walks me through the steps I would apprecaite it if you would send that to me.
