A few weeks ago I did a BPM12c Quickstart Installation under Oracle Linux 6. Everything went smoothly, as described in the install guide as well as on many blogs already.
But I found that most of those blogs did an installation under Windows, where I did it under Oracle Linux in Virtualbox.
You would think (as I did) that it shouldn't matter. However, it turns out that in JDeveloper I was missing the 'BPM Application' amongst others in the JDeveloper New Gallery. Very inconvenient. I couldn't find any hints on the big internet. My friend Google wasn't very helpful in this.
