INSTALLING ORACLE ENDECA INFORMATION DESCOVERY 3.0 ON
WINDOWS 64 BIT MACHINE
software do we need :
1. Oracle Endeca Server (126.96.36.199) from edelivery
2. Oracle Endeca Information Discovery Studio (3.0) for WebLogic from edelivery
3. Oracle Endeca Information Discovery Integrator (3.0) from edelivery
4. JDK version 6
5. Oracle Weblogic Server 11gR1
6. ADF Runtime
When you've downloaded these components you are ready to go. Perhaps first a brief summary
of the steps we will do during this install, so you will not loose the overview:
1. Install the JDK (needed for the application server) 2. Install Weblogic Server (the application server) 3. Install the ADF Runtime software (some additional middletier components needed for a
succesful Endeca Server deployment)
4. Install the Endeca Server software (the analytical search database) 5. Create a Weblogic Domain for the Endeca Server 6. Create a Weblogic Domain for Endeca Studio 7. Update some Weblogic settings for the purpose of the installation of Endeca Studio 8. Deploy the Endeca Studio application (the presentation layer) 9. Install Integrator (the ETL component) 10. Done
1. Install the JDK
I use the jRockit, but the Sun JDK has similar steps. To install the jRockit JDK just start the
setup.exe. Click on the first screen and on the second screen enter a path. DO NOT USE
Click . On the next page make no selections and click again. Then you are asked
if you want to install the JRE as well. It is not necessary, but if you say Yes and then you
are asked for a path again. Enter a different path then the previous one and click . jRockit
will be installed.
2. Install Weblogic Server
To install Weblogic Server execute the download wls1036_generic.jar with the JDK. Go to the
directory with wls1036_generic.jar and type:
\bin\java -jar wls1036_generic.jar
The installer will start. On the Welcome screen Click .
Then select 'Create a newMiddleware Home' and enter a path where to install (I entered:
Then I try with minimum clicks :-) to make clear to the software that I do not want to be notified
of updates by clicking:
On the next screen put a check at "I wish to remain uninformed ..." and click .
Then choose a Custom install and click .
On the next screen uncheck Oracle Coherence and click .
The just installed JDK should be checked on the screen: .
Then enter a path for the installation directory:
Click . Choose not to install the Nodemanager:
Click , Click For "All users" Start Menu Folder:
Click , again . Then the install will run for about a minute. Uncheck the "Run
Quickstart" and click .
Weblogic has been installed.
3. Install the ADF Runtime software
After you unzipped the downloaded software go to the directory Disk1. From a command line
we start the setup.exe with a jreLoc option: setup.exe -jreLoc . In my case: setup.exe -jreLoc d:\oracle\jrockit
The installer starts. On the first screen click . Select the "Skip Software Updates" option
and click . After the Prerequisites Checks have been done click . Then enter the
location of the Oracle Middleware Home. The just installed Weblogic home should appear in the
drop down list:
Click . On the Application Server screen "Weblogic Server" is already checked. Click
. After about 2 minutes the installation is finished. Click and
4. Install the Endeca Server Software
Open a command line box, go to the unzipped Endeca Server software directory Disk1 and start
the setup with the -jreLoc option as with the ADF runtime software: setup.exe -jreLoc . In my case: setup.exe -jreLoc d:\oracle\jrockit
The installer starts. On the Welcome screen click . After the Prerequisites Checks have
been done click . Then select the Weblogic Middleware home from a drop down list.
Leave the Oracle Home Directory to the default (EndecaServer7.5.1_1):
After entering locations click . For this installation we will not run the Endeca Server in a
secure mode, so uncheck 'Yes':
Click . After 2 minutes the installation is finished. Click and then . The
core Endeca Server software has now been installed. The surrounding Web Application Server
software is next.
5. Create a Weblogic Domain for the Endeca Server
Now we need to create a Weblogic Domain for the Endeca Server software. To do so, open a
command prompt (of course you can also use Windows Explorer, but I like the command line, if
something goes wrong ...) and go to the directory: \wlserver_10.3\common\bin (for my environment:
d:\oracel\oeid30\fmw\wlserver_10.3\common\bin). Type there: config.cmd
On the appearing screen choose: Create a new Weblogic domain. Click . Then select
"Oracle Endeca Server - 188.8.131.52". The second check ("Oracle JRF") comes for free:
Enter a Domain name (mine: endecaserver_domain) and leave the Domain location untouched:
Click . On the next screen you enter the username and password for the administrator of
Click . Choose Production Mode and see that the right JDK already has been checked:
Click . No optional configuration. Click . Click . After 30 seconds the
domain has been created. Click .
You can verify your install of the Endeca Server. Start the Endeca Server Domain by executing: \user_projects\domains\
name>\bin\startWebLogic.cmd. For my installation: d:\oracle\oeid30\fmw\user_projects\domains\endecaserver_domain\bin\startWebLo
You will be asked to enter the username and password of the administrator of this domain (you
entered this during the installation).
From a browser start this URL: http://localhost:7001/endeca-server/ws/manage?wsdl
That should give a respons something like this:
Now the Endeca Server is completely installed and operational (on port 7001). Shortly will
follow a blog entry to change the port for the Endeca Server.
6. Create a Weblogic Domain for Endeca Studio
For the Endeca Studio application we also need to create a domain (recommended as per the
documentation). This is similar to the Endeca Server Domain creation: Open a command prompt
and go to the directory: \wlserver_10.3\common\bin (for my
environment: d:\oracel\oeid30\fmw\wlserver_10.3\common\bin). Type there:
Select "Create a new WebLogic domain". Click . Use the default Basic domain
Entera Domain name and leave the Domain location untouched:
Click , Then enter a username and password for the domain administrator:
Click . Choose Production Mode and see that the JDK has been selected.
Select modify settings of Administration Server:
Click . Since we did a basic domain installation of the Endeca Server this has been
configured on port 7001. So we need to change the port of the domain where Endeca Studio will
be running. Change the Listen port of the future Endeca Studio Application. I chose port 8880.
Click . Then click and after a couple of seconds the domain has been created.
A domain has been created and is ready to deploy the Studio application.
7. Update some Weblogic settings for the purpose of Endeca Studio
Before you can deploy the Endeca Studio application, we need to modify some Weblogic
settings. Edit the file: \user_projects\domains\\bin\setDomainEnv.cmd
Copy the italics text below and paste it in the top of the file, i.e. just after set WL_HOME.
In the same file update (2 times) memory arguments:
Change set WLS_MEM_ARGS_64BIT=-Xms256m -Xmx512m into: set WLS_MEM_ARGS_64BIT=-
Xms256m Xmx1024m and Change
set MEM_MAX_PERM_SIZE_64BIT=-XX:MaxPermSize=256m into: set MEM_MAX_PERM_SIZE_64BIT=-XX:MaxPermSize=512m
Save the file.
Stop the Endeca Studio domain if started (via command \user_projects\domains\\bin\stopWebLogic.cmd)
and start it (via command \user_projects\domains\\bin\startWebLogic.cmd).
8. Deploy the Endeca Studio application
Now you will deploy the Endeca Studio application in the just created Weblogic domain. After
you unzip the edelivery Studio package for Weblogic you'll see some files:
Copy the files portal-ext.properties and endeca-portal-weblogic-3.0.10089.ear to \user_projects\domains
In the directory \user_projects\domains create the following
directories: data, deploy and weblogic-deploy. In the newly created directory \user_projects\domains\data create the directory endeca-data-sources.
The directory \user_projects\domains will look like:
Now let's deploy the Endeca Studio file (endeca-portal-weblogic-3.0.10089.ear).
Make sure your Endeca Studio domain has been started. Open a browser and go to URL:
http://localhost:/console (for me: http://localhost:8880/console)
