How to install Fusion Client 14.1

Continuing the installation of Environment to RPAS Server 14.1; this time we will describe how to install the Fusion Client 14.1 in Weblogic Server.

Just to remember you, we did the installation of Weblogic and Oracle Database before, now we’ll install Fusion Client to be prepared to use when we’ll install RPAS Server 14.1.

If you didn’t prepare the environment to install Fusion Client, follow the steps in Environment to RPAS Server 14.1 before doing the steps below.

Preparing Weblogic

Before doing anything about install of Fusion Client 14.1, we must need to prepare the Weblogic to “receive” the Fusion Client. These steps are very important because 1) they are request during the installation and, even if you can install, 2) the features of Fusion Client can be used without some libraries, for example.

Applying the libraries

The first step is that we must apply a set of libraries within the server that will use the Fusion Client. These libraries are important for the Fusion Client uses them in its operations; if this isn’t done, we will have problems during installation.

So to do this, you need to access the console of Weblogic and after accessing deployment area through the left menu.

<Name of domain> -> Deployment

This new window have a list of libraries that are already installed in Weblogic Server. To start we will apply library “adf.oracle.domain” in Managed Server of RPAS.

So select the library “adf.oracle.domain” in the list; Doing so, we will have a window with various information about the library. Go to Target” tab, we must select the Managed Server where Fusion Client will be installed and click “Save”

Do the steps above for all libraries below:

  • adf.oracle.domain
  • adf.oracle.domain.webapp
  • jsf
  • jstl
  • oracle.bi.adf.model.slib
  • oracle.bi.adf.view.slib
  • oracle.jsp.next

Defining Data Source

After all libraries were applied to Managed Server of RPAS, we need to do something similar for the datasource. This need is due because of new functionality of seeking information in real time in Fusion Client, called PO View Module.

To set the Data Source, we have to follow the following steps:

<Name of domain> -> Services -> Data Sources -> OpssDataSource

Do here the same steps of libraries to Managed Server of RPAS. After this setting, we are ready, we did all steps before installing Fusion Client

Installing Fusion Client

Now that the environment is all set up and installed, we can start the installing of Fusion Client. The installation package comes within the RPAS Server package. So you have to unzip the package and then get the file FusionClient.zip.

Installation Complete

After completing the installation, it’s recommend restart the weblogic and Managed Server. After restarting, check if Managed Server of RPAS and Fusion Client started correctly without errors; For me, the best is check the log files inside of Weblogic Domain folder.

If everything was ok!, so this moment you can access the front-end of the Fusion Client and need to see the image below. (If you see, something happens during the installation, please send me a message to help you!!)

Important: this moment we can’t connect in any application because we didn’t set any information about during the installation. So wait for next steps of installation! =)
