Install Oracle Real-Time Integration Business Insight

Yes, Oracle FMW Integration Insight is available, as I wrote in an earlier post. You can download it here.
But of course we're very curious on how to install it. Do I have to unzip it into my FMW_HOME? Is there a nice Oracle Installer that I can run silently? No, none of that: it comes as a set of OPatch patches on SOASuite 12.2.1:

Automatic install SOA/BPM QuickStart under Linux

Earlier I wrote about the automatic or silent install of JDeveloper. As a preperation for an automatic install of the complete SOASuite I translated this to Linux.

Which is good news actually, because although Weblogic 12c was already Java 8 certified, and SQLDeveloper 4.1 was introduced (more...)
