Automatic install of JDeveloper

A few weeks ago I wrote a little script to do a silent install of SOA/BPM QuickStart.
Yesterday I enhanced the script to also do an automatic install of Java and adapt the environment settings to have the JDeveloper settings specific placed in C:\Data\JDeveloper\SOA.

To run the script you should have the following files placed in one folder (for instance c:\temp\soabpm):
Download the jdk-8u65-windows-x64.exe from here. If you use another version adapt the script below to change the JAVA_HOME as the place where it should be installed and the reference to the installer (jdk-8u65-windows-x64.exe) to the version. The script below ignores any other installation of Java (either an other update of jdk8 or earlier versions).

Using the 'setx' command  (see docs) the JAVA_HOME is explicitly set, and also later on the variables JDEV_USER_DIR_SOA and JDEV_USER_HOME_SOA pointing to C:\Data\JDeveloper\SOA. I picked the jdev.boot from an earlier install adapted the ide.user.dir.var variable as follows:

# The ide.user.dir.var specifies the name of the environment variable
# that points to the root directory for user files.  The system and
# mywork directories will be created there.  If not defined, the IDE
# product will use its base directory as the user directory.

A copy of this jdev.boot file I placed in the same folder as the script. The scripts sets the FMW_HOME as 'C:\oracle\JDeveloper\12210_BPMQS'. After the install of JDeveloper-SOA/BPM QuickStart, it copies this jdev.boot file to the right place in the FMW_HOME (%FMW_HOME%\jdeveloper\jdev\bin).
Make sure that you have the installer jar files (fmw_12. and fmw_12. unzipped in the same folder. You could have downloaded them in zip files. You can use this script also to do a complete silent install of the JDeveloper Studio Edition, but then use the generic installer downloaded here (Oracle JDeveloper 12c Generic/Others(2.1GB)).

The installBpmQS.bat script is as follows.
@echo off
set JAVA_HOME=c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_65
echo setx -m JAVA_HOME "%JAVA_HOME%"
rem Check Java
if exist "%JAVA_HOME%" goto :JAVA_HOME_EXISTS
echo Install %JAVA_HOME% 
jdk-8u65-windows-x64.exe /s INSTALLDIR="%JAVA_HOME%"
echo %JAVA_HOME% exists
rem check BPM12.2 QS
set FMW_HOME=C:\oracle\JDeveloper\12210_BPMQS
if exist "%FMW_HOME%" goto :BPMQS_HOME_EXISTS
echo Install %FMW_HOME% 
rem echo "Current dir2:" %~dp0
echo "Silent install BPM QuickStart, using response file:" %cd%\bpmqs1221_silentInstall.rsp
"%JAVA_HOME%\bin\java.exe" -jar fmw_12. -silent -responseFile %cd%\bpmqs1221_silentInstall.rsp -nowait
echo %FMW_HOME% exists
if not exist c:\Data mkdir c:\Data
if not exist c:\Data\JDeveloper mkdir c:\Data\JDeveloper
if not exist c:\Data\JDeveloper\SOA mkdir c:\Data\JDeveloper\SOA
rem set  JDEV_USER_DIR_SOA and JDEV_USER_HOME_SOA as 'c:\Data\JDeveloper\SOA'
echo set  JDEV_USER_DIR_SOA and JDEV_USER_HOME_SOA as c:\Data\JDeveloper\SOA
setx -m JDEV_USER_DIR_SOA c:\Data\JDeveloper\SOA
setx -m JDEV_USER_HOME_SOA c:\Data\JDeveloper\SOA
echo copy jdev.boot naar "%FMW_HOME%\jdeveloper\jdev\bin"
copy jdev.boot "%FMW_HOME%\jdeveloper\jdev\bin" /Y
echo done

For completeness, the content of the response file is:

Response File Version=


#Set this to true if you wish to skip software updates


MOS_PASSWORD=<secure value="">

#If the Software updates are already downloaded and available on your local system, then specify the path to the directory where these patches are available and set SPECIFY_DOWNLOAD_LOCATION to true





#The oracle home location. This can be an existing Oracle Home or a new Oracle Home
Save this as bpmqs1221_silentInstall.rsp. If you use this for the installation of JDeveloper Studio Edition or any other version of JDeveloper, then adapt the name, also in installBpmQS.bat above, and adapt the FMW_HOME/ORACLE_HOME in both installBpmQS.bat and the response-file.

I could have enhanced this script to put the possible points to change in variables. But I think with my eloboration you should get the point...

This is good if you need to install jdeveloper to multiple workstation of a whole team
