Finally got the time to test drive the Oracle Software Packager 2.2 that is used to create installation packages installable by Oracle Universal installer.
Great tool! After 1 hour I got my first installation staging area built up and tested using Oracle Universal installer.
Just wondering why this tool is not more widely used within our customers and partners.
Oracle Software Packager can create installation components which can be bundled together to create a main installation component. This seems to work nicely when using a "custom" installation option. All the subcomponents can be either selected or de-selected the same way as it works with OracleAS or OracleDB installation.
I'm going to use the installer to bundle all custom Interconnect adapters, adapter customizers and transformations so that they are more easily installed. The package will be called OracleAS Interconnect Power Pack.
