SAP Web AS 4.0 ABAP + JAVA UC installation


When installing the Java add-on on an existing Web AS 6.40 ABAP unicode system(Win2000, Oracle I get the following problem during the installation:


ERROR 2004-08-20 16:01:50


CJS-00081 Assertion failed: Component OraDatabaseTablespaces: Context parameter dbHome must be a valid ORACLE_HOME directory.


dbHome seems to be a parameter the control.xml file is using during the installation. Can I debug the control.xml file during the installation to see what values it gets from registry etc.?

Can anyone help me with this problem?

    The issue has been solved.


    I de-installed an APO 3.1 system on the same host and therefore I

    cleaned the registry to get rid of Oracle 8.1.7. In this registry file

    I took away the ID0 directory under "ALL_HOMES"

    because that was the oracle home of 8.1.7.

    There is a method in control.xml which is called "SetDefaultContext1".

    This method assumes that there should be a ID0 directory in the registry if you at least have one oracle home on your computer - which I have in the ID1 directory(Oracle Since the installation

    script didn't find any ID0 in the registry it just returned an empty dbhome variable in the control.xml file and the installation failed because it couldn't find any oracle home.


    In the control.xml file I hardcoded that it should get my Oracle home

    information from the ID1 directory and

    so far it has worked 😊
