Install Oracle EBS 12i

So, I finally installed the new EBS 12i release. I had to install with an empty database, because of disk space limits...
But the important thing is that the installation went well and was successful.

Some first impressions...
- the look and feel changed (we had already seen some previews..)
- some strange options when logging in the application ??

- the database is twice as big (10g vs 9i)
- new technology stack
- new instance top

I also faced a first problem. I could not startup the application in my Microsoft explorer..The java console showed the login was hanging on the appslogo_new.gif ??
I found out that when I deactivated my Oracle Dba Toolbar in the explorer, I could enter the application without any problem. But when activating the toolbar again..the login process was hanging again on the same gif. Strange...the toolbar was downloaded from OTN and is something Oracle brought to my attention... I wonder if this is a known issue....

I also saw the dbc file is now in the instance top directory. Strange, because the path to the dbc file seems the same, /appl/fnd/12.0.0/secure....but this is not in the APPL_TOP, but in the INSTANCE_TOP (inst/apps/PROD_vamisux34).
A simple ls command in the INSTANCE_TOP shows..

[oracle@vamisux34 PROD_vamisux34]$ ls

admin appltmp conf_PROD.txt logs ora pids rgf

appl certs conf_PROD.txt.bac ocm out portal temp

The admin directory contains the scripts directory, where all the start/stop scripts are located.

The appl directory shows us

[oracle@vamisux34 appl]$ ls

admin fnd

where fnd holds the dbc file and the admin directory contains the xml file.

More to come....
