PeopleSoft Installation Made Extremely Easy: Part 1

Download and Install Required Softwares

Before we begin I would like to clarify that we are going to do this installation on Microsoft Windows based operating systems/server. To know more about PeopleSoft instalation in UNIX based OS please refer to to  PeopleSoft Installation Guide.

Step 1: Downloading the required Softwares from Oracle E-Delivery

Login into  Oracle Software E-Delivery and in the Search page, select the product pack as 'PeopleSoft Enterprise' and platform as Microsoft Windows x64 (If your windows is 64 bit OS which is most likely the case)
  1. PeopleSoft Human Capital Management 9.x Full Install (through Update Image 9) – Multi-Language - After you download it, unzip it in a new directory PS_APP_INSTALL
  2. PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.5x (Part 1 of 4)
    PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.5x (Part 2 of 4)
    PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.5x (Part 3 of 4)
    PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.5x (Part 4 of 4)   - Once download all four parts, unzip them inside a new directory PS_INSTALL 
  3. Oracle Tuxedo xcR1 (x.1.1.0) for Microsoft Windows (64-bit) with MS Visual Studio 201x - Once downloaded, unzip it inside a new directory TUX_INSTALL
  4. Oracle Fusion Middleware xc WebLogic Server and Coherence (x.1.2.0.0)                             
    Once downloaded, unzip it inside a new directory WLS_INSTALL

In additional to this, download following software too:
  1. JRockit Latest Version
  2. Oracle SQL Developer Latest Version

Step 2: Installing All the Applications

Installing Oracle Database

Installing database isn't a big deal. Just click on its setup file and it will guide you through the installation. Considering you are installing the Oracle in C drive, it will automatically create a directory app under C (C:\app) and install all the files under this directory. Note that the directory name might be different so just accept what is there by default.
Having said that, once the installation is complete:
Oracle home (ORACLE_HOME)  will be - C:\app\Administrator\product\11.2.0\dbhome_1
Oracle base (ORACLE_BASE) will be - C:\app\Administrator

We will refer these two terms throughout this article.

Installing PeopleSoft PeopleTools
  1. Run the setup file from PS_INSTALL\Disk1\InstData, click on Next. Accept the license agreement.
  2. Enter your license code (Obtain the license code from PeopleSoft License Codes in PeoleTools Section ) and click Next.
  3. Select the database platform Oracle and click Next
  4. Select the Non-Unicode database since we are not going to use it globally
  5. Select all the servers and click Next
  6. Specify the PS Home directory. Choose C:\PS_HOME and click Next
  7. Enter your email and uncheck the option 'I wish to receive security update via Oracle Support'. In the next pop up box, check the option 'I want to remain uninformed of critical security issue' and click Next
  8. In the next window, choose the connectivity program directory which will be \BIN i.e C:\app\Administrator\product\11.2.0\dbhome_1\bin
  9. In next windows that appear, keep the default selection . Finally it will display the installation confirmation window. Review all the details given and click on Install.
  10. Once installed, click finish to complete the installation.
The directory where PeopleTools has been installed i.e C:\PS_HOME will be referred as PS_HOME. We will use this term throughout this article.

The rest of the steps are straigh forward so I am not gonna explain one by one however make sure that   when it asks for installation directory, then enter the PS_HOME where we installed PeopleTools i.e C:\PS_HOME.

Installing JRockit
  1. Install the JRockit by just clicking on its setup directory. By default the installation directory will be C:\Program Files\Java\ so keep it as it is. After installation the JRockit/JDK home directory will be C:\Program Files\Java\jrockit-jdk1.x.x.x

  2. Click on Next, then again click on Next.
  3. Choose the Full Install which will default selection and click Next
  4. Specify an Oracle home directory, referred to here as ORACLE_HOME, if system doesn't recognize the existing ORACLE_HOME then choose the option Create a New Oracle Home and enter the directory C:\app. Click on Next.
  5. In all the next windows, just click Next and when a final confirmation window appears click on Install.

  1. Double click on web logic setup file from inside WLS_INSTALL, when the installation window appears click on Next
  2. Choose the installation directory for WebLogic server C:\app\WLS1034 and click on Next
  3. Enter your email and uncheck the option 'I wish to receive security update via Oracle Support'. In the next pop up box, check the option 'I want to remain uninformed of critical security issue' and click Next
  4. Keep the default selection Typical Install and click on Next
  5. In the next window, choose the JRockit home directory bundled with JDK which is C:\Program Files\Java\jrockit-jdk1.x.x.x in this case and click on Next.
  6. In the following windows keep the default selection and click Next until the installation starts happening.

Install Oracle SQL Developer
  1. Finally install SQL developer which we will use as SQL Editor. Note that this installation wil also ask for JDK home so choose C:\Program Files\Java\jrockit-jdk1.x.x.x.
