OWB 11gR2 Tip: Downloading and Installing Workflow Monitor 2.6.4
By antonio romero on Oct 13, 2010
Oracle Workflow 2.6.4 is still used as an integral part of Warehouse Builder 11gR2—specifically, to support the use of OWB process flows. However, Workflow Monitor is not part of the OWB 11gR2 installation of Workflow. As a result, many users of OWB 11gR2 want to know where to download Workflow Monitor, and how to install Workflow Monitor to manage the workflow jobs OWB creates.
Workflow Monitor usable with OWB 11gR2 is available from the Oracle Database 10gR2 Companion CD, which you can download from OTN. A detailed installation walkthrough on Windows 32-bit follows. Other platforms should be similar.
After you download and unzip the Companion CD, run Oracle Universal Installer from the CD.
Install the 10gR2 Companion Products.
Install these products into a separate Oracle Home. Do not install them into the database home.
From the components, select Oracle Workflow Middle Tier 2.6.4.
Run through the Prerequisite checks.
For the Middle Tier Configuration, enter the host, port and SID fo your database, and the workflow schema OWF_MGR.
Enter the password for OWF_MGR when prompted.
Review the summary, which should look like the one below.
Click “Install” to start the installation process running:
When the installation completes, the Configuration Assistants will run. Wait until they complete.
When the “End of Installation” dialog appears, Workflow Monitor is installed.
