The way I did it was:

  • Install a jdk 1.5 or higher and set env var: export JAVA_HOME=$HOME/<jdkdir>

  • Download the zip file from

  • Create a directory oc4j in your homedir from that directory unzip the oracle zip file

  • Create a env var: export ORACLE_HOME=$HOME/oc4j

  • cd $ORACLE_HOME/bin

  • ./oc4j -start

  • enter an admin password (since this is the first start)

  • check the serverstatus on http://localhost:8888

Have fun..

  2. oc4j 11 download link suddenly was gone. Here you may find out the explanation of it:
