Oracle SOA Suite 12c quickstart installation guide



    This tutorial shows you how to install the Oracle Database 12c software on Microsoft Windows along with a default instance of an Oracle Database that contains example schemas ( including the HR schema).

    Time to Complete

    Approximately 1 hour.


    The Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) is used to install the Oracle Database software. OUI is a graphical user interface utility that enables you to:

    • View the Oracle software that is installed on your machine
    • Install new Oracle Database software
    • Delete Oracle software that is no longer required

    During the installation process, OUI will start the Oracle Database Configuration Assistant (DBCA) which can install a precreated default database that contains example schemas or can guide you through the process of creating and configuring a customized database.
    If you do not create a database during installation, you can invoke DBCA after you have installed the software, to create one or more databases.

    Hardware and Software Requirements

    Before installing the software, OUI performs several automated checks to ensure that your computer fulfills the basic hardware and software requirements for an Oracle Database installation. If your computer does not meet the requirements, an error message is displayed. Some of the requirements to install the software are:

    • Minimum 2 GB of physical memory
    • Sufficient virtual memory (swap)
    • At least 10 GB of free disk space


    Before starting this tutorial, you should:

    • Have access to the Oracle Database 12c distribution media, or have an internet connection so that you can download the software
