Oracle ECM 11g Installation

There have been many changes done to the product in all aspects with the 11g release.
key things to note are :
ECM 11g  is running on top of WebLogic Server , that means there has been an architectural change.
Installation is a lot different than the previous 10g R3 Release.

before getting on and listing all the changes and benefits of 11g release , let's get straight on to the installation part.

Required Software : 
Database 11 gR2  - contains the database schema  [tables to hold the metadata info].
WebLogic Server 11 - WLS1035
RCU [Repository Creation Utility] - OFM_RCU_WIN_11. [helps creating ECM schema in database]
ECM  Suite11g [OFM_ECM_GENERIC_11.].

Quick Overview on Installation steps :

 1. Install Database
2. Install WebLogic Server 10.3.4 (This step will create Middleware Home and WebLogic Home)
3. Create schema for ECM using RCU
4. Install Enterprise Content Management (ECM) 11g – Installer will create binaries for UCM, IBR, IPM,       IRM and URM 
 (This step will create ORACLE_HOME for ECM or ECM_ORACLE_HOME . This step will also create  ORACLE_COMMON_HOME containing Fusion Middleware Control and Java Required Files (JRF))
5. Configure Enterprise Content Management (ECM) by running / cmd
(This step will   create Domain, Admin/Managed  Server for WebLogic and deploy ECM applications for above mentioned products).
6.  Post Installation steps.

                         - Component name
