Installing Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g–PART I-Preparing the Installation

I have done the Installation for Windows 7 64 bit Operating System. However below steps can be used to Install any windows Operating System and I will mention if any specific steps needed.

1. Checking the Certification Matrix
Please refer the certification matrix provided by Oracle before starting with the Installation. I had to re install everything just because I didn't go through it properly and I missed some of the notes like Creating Virtual Machine in case of Windows 7 64 Bit OS.
You can find the CertMatrix in the link below
1.1 Important Points from the CertMatrix Excel:
Ø For Windows 7 64 Bit OS users one sad news. You cannot install the OFM 11g directly here. As per the certification matrix -- > This certification is with Windows 7 in XP mode only. So download VMWare and Install 32 bit XP in that, allocate around 30 GB of disk space to that and that's it. You can happily install the software's within that.
Ø Check for JDK Versions too. For Windows 7 64 bit OS users, since you are installing within XP 32 bit OS download 32 bit version of JDK
Ø Most of the Windows Versions supports below database versions. If you are planning to install on non-Oracle DB, then refer "Non Oracle DBs Certification" section in the excel
Ø Supported Browsers -- >
Internet Explorer 7.x
Internet Explorer 8.x
Firefox 3.x
Safari 4.x
That's it from the CertMatrix part. We will move ahead with Downloading the softwares

2. Preparing for the Installation
2.1 Memory and Disk Space requirements
This installation requires 3 GB or more available memory. The installation process requires about 12 GB of disk space. After installation, you can delete the files used by installation to save about 4 GB.
Note: Installation size of 12 GB is only for basic softwares like WebLogic Server, Database and JDeveloper. If you are planning for additional development softwares like IDM,SOA,ODI then you may plan for additional space.
2.2 Downloading the Softwares
Well there are couple of basic software's we need to download to configure OFM 11g.
All the softwares can be downloaded from the link below. You need to have/create Oracle SSO ID to download the softwares

Weblogic(Required) -- This is need to configure weblogic server which can be used to run any development softwares like SOA,ODI,IDM,OSB etc.. Below are the different versions of the softwares you can think of downloading
Oracle WebLogic Server 10.3.3(preferred) -- This can be used only with 32 bit OS
Oracle WebLogic Server 10.3.2 -- This can be used only with 32 bit OS -- This can be used with any OS
Note: For Windows 7 64 bit users you can install Oracle WebLogic Server 10.3.3 as you are installing within 32 bit Windows XP
RCU(Repository Creation Utility)(Required) -- This is need to create schemas before installing any development softwares like SOA,ODI,IDM etc. For example if you want to Install ODI(Oracle Data Integrator) then this RCU will create master and work repositories for you. You can download below versions of RCU
Note: There is no 64 bit versions or generic versions of RCU. You have to install one of the above mentioned versions
Database(Required) -- Download and Install 11g database(Preferred) or upgrade your existing 10g database to the version required by OFM 11g installation( or install other vendor databases
After these above mentioned downloads you can download your development softwares as required by you. I am using SOA suite and Oracle Data Integrator. So mentioning those here.
SOA Suite(Optional) -- ofm_soa_generic_11.
JDeveloper Studio(Required) – This tool will be used to develop most of the OFM components like SCA,Mediator Services etc. You can download jdevstudio11113install.exe from below link

Set A:
