      Hi,

      Thanks for your post, its really useful.

      If i am not wrong We need to RCU to create BIPLATFORM + Metadata Services, but where is the setup to run the RCU ? I have Clicked on the Here link in your post it took me to WEBLOGIC Server download, when i install that it never asked me to create a schema, please guide us to run which service or setup file to get the RCU.

      Thanks,
      Anil

      @ Anil,
      Download “Repository Creation Utility (11.1.1.3.3)” from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/downloads/fmw-11-download-092893.html

    3. Anil says:

      Hi Atul,

      Thanks, I have found the download link.

      I am trying to install on Win XP, 2GB, 32bit machine, Could you please let us know is this ok, or we need only Windows 2003 server and 4Gb for OBIEE 11G ?

      Thanks,
      Anil

      Did you run across any errors when installing this? When I enter the Administrator Details information, it will not proceed. The section label turns red, but there is no error message

    6. Ahsan says:

      Hi Atul,

      I am planning to Install OBIEE 11g on RHEL5.
      Will you please let us know what is difference between Simple Install, Enterprise Install or Software Only Install.
      Especially, If someone is planning to Install OBIEE for Production, which option has to be selected and why?

      Thanks.
      Ahsan.

    7. Atul Kumar says:

      Simple Intall : If you want to install Oracle Business Intelligence quickly for demonstration and evaluation purposes

      Enterprise Install : is for organizations with multiple users, and possibly developers, that want to install Oracle Business Intelligence in a secure, clustered environment.

      Software Only Install : Install Software but donot configure.

      If someone is planning to Install OBIEE for Production, which option has to be selected and why?

      Go forEnterprise Deployment for Highest Levels of Availability and Security

      Thanks Atul,

      I am having Oracle 11g R1 (will upgrade to R2) on 1 Linux 5 server and I have 1 more Linux 5 server on which I am planning to install OBIEE 11g.
      Just wanted to know few more things like:
      1) What is the required structure & size of the database for OBIEE?
      2) As, it is going to be 2 node, I will run RCU on DB node??? and then finally,
      3) I will start the OBIEE 11g Enterprise installation on the other node.
      Just let me know if these steps are correct?
      Please let me know your thoughts on this and any Pre-Requisites should I take care of!!!

      Many Thanks,
      Ahsan

    9. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Ahsan

      – Note RCU can be run from any windows/linux machine as long as that machine can talk to database server and database listener port (default 1521) is open.

      – Use sys schema when creating above two schemas

      2. For database requirement check http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/ias/downloads/fusion-requirements-100147.html#CHDJGECA

      Step you mentioned above for OBIEE 11g installation are correct

    10. Ajit says:

      Hi,
      I want to install OBIEE 11g on windows 7 (64 bit). As part of pre-requiste,when I try to install RCU (rcu.bat/rcu.exe) it pops out compatibility issue with my 64 bit OS. I could not find RCU for 64 bit windows.

      Is there a workaround for this??

      Please help at the earliest

    11. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Ajit,
      RCU is supported only on Windows and Linux that too 32 bit OS . See if you have 32 bit machine (Linux or windows) on network which you can use to create schema in this 64 bit OS.

      What is exact error ?

      Did you ty to run program after changing compatibility to Windows XP (I doubt though) ?

    12. Ajit says:

      @Atul,

      Thanks. I tried running on Compatibility mode (XP< Vista , 98 everything:-)) But no luck.

      Apparantly I am trying on a stand alone system.
      Is there Oracle script to populate required tables etc in the desired new schema instead of running RCU?

    13. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Ajit,
      No there is no script as of today to populate schema.

      Use any 32 machine (just to load schema)

    14. Paul says:

      Hi Atul,

      Do you know the url to download just the “Administration Tool” – the tool to create the RPD, physical Layer, business Model and Presentation layer?

      Thanks for your time.

    15. Sohaib says:

      I have tried so many times to install OBIEE 11g on windows XP 32-bit having 3GB RAM but the installation stuk on Creating ASInstance but never failed still shows In Progress so please kindly help me and tell me what steps i follow to install the OBIEE 11g thanks i am waiting for reply

    16. Kamran Ali says:

      Hi Atul,

      1. Can I install OBIEE 11g on same machine having OBIEE 10g already installed?
      2. If YES, than how to migrate 10g work products (dashboards, answers etc) to 11?

      Thanks for your advise.

      Regards,
      Kamran

    17. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Sohaib, Check installation logs (under oraInventory) to find reason for hang. It could be as simple as waiting on managed server to start (and start is failing for some reason).

      Check logs and fix issue accordingly

    18. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Kamran

      1. Yes
      2. For migrating/upgrade 10g work products check upgrade guide at
      http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E14571_01/bi.1111/e16452/summary.htm#

    20. Venu says:

      Hi Atul-ji,

      I want to acknowledge that I could install OBIEE 10g only with your help. So, Thank you.

      Concurrent installation : I would like to have both OBIEE 10g and 11g installed on my laptop (don’t want to upgrade/migrate).
      Q: Is this possible?

      Note: I will be running either 10g or 11g – only one of them – at a given point in time.

      Thank you and best wishes,

      Venu

    21. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Venu,
      Yes both 11g and 10g OBIEE coexist on same machine (install them under different directories)

    22. Alesnd says:

      Nobody reply to Paul?
      What is the url to download just the “Administration Tool”?
      Thanks

    23. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Paul, Alesnd

      OBIEE 11g Administration Tool is part of OBIEE 11g installation software.

      Though OBIEE Administration tool is not supported on 64 bit machine. Here is post for workaround http://shivabizint.wordpress.com/2010/08/24/obiee-11g-rpd-is-not-opening-in-windows-64-bit-machine/

    24. Kamran Ali says:

      Hi Atul,

      Can you write an article on map viewer integration in OBIEE 11g?

      Regards,
      Kamran

    25. Alesnd says:

      Hi Atul,
      I installed OBIEE 11g on Linux 64 bit. Admin Tool is also available for linux? If not, how can I do?
      Thanks

    26. Akshara says:

      Hi Atul,

      Nice Article.I want to install OBIEE 11g on my 32 bit windows m/c.

      Just one thing installing RCU when need to give the schema name i didn’t give sys and gave a user who is normal user with dba privillege because of which i got some errors like insufficient privilleges like while running something like this…
      “grant execute dbms_ouput to dev_mds”
      and some plsql object creation failed like “Pl/sql object failed SD Clean up procedure”,at the time when u click create button.

      But at the end it showed the schema being created.
      So i didn’t bother much about that.
      I cannot give sys user as i don’t have my own db in my machine.

      But then when i ma trying to install OBIEE i am getting problem in configuration step,create domain is getting failed?

      Thanks

    27. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Akshara,
      For RCU you should use user with sysdba priviliges. DBA is role and is different from sysdba access.

      Ask your DBA to run below command

      SQL> grant sysdba to user1;

      where user1 is user you are using in RCU to connect to dataabse.

    28. Akshara says:

      Hello Atul,

      Thanks for the reply,I did the same way and the RCU creation don’t give any error now, its creates without any error.

      But the problem comes in the obiee installation part, in the configuration progress step i.e. Step 11,
      BI Configuration shows 0%
      and the Creating domain shows In progress
      like this for some an hour and then shows failed.

      The log file just shows this->
      Assigning Port: 9556 to: NODE_MANAGER_PORT

      as the last stmt.

      Where have i gone wrong?

      Thanks

    29. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Akshara,
      Check oraInventory/logs for error message (I am suspecting this could be at starting services because of either port already in use or not enough memory. Logs should tell you exact error)

      For oraInventory location check http://onlineappsdba.com/index.php/2009/10/08/orainventory-location-orainstloc-on-windows-linux-unix/

      @ Akshara,

      In log file I can see
      ____
      An internal operation has failed:Bad host: “Desktop_Swapna”
      ____

      See if your machine can resolve this hostname . Is this correct hostname ?

    32. Akshara says:

      HELLO,

      I CHANGED THE HOSTNAME.IT GOT INSTALLED PROPERLY.
      THANK YOU VERY MUCH.I STRUGGLED A LOT TO INSTALL IT.
      THANKS FOR HELPING ME OUT.
      THANKS ONCE AGAIN.

      THANKS

    33. NDEVI says:

      Hi Atul,

      Is it possible to install Oracle 11g and OBIEE 11g on the same laptop? If yes, can you please let me know how to handle multiple ORACLE_HOME’s?

      Thanks
      NDEVI

    34. Atul Kumar says:

      @ NDEVI,
      Yes it is possible to have OBIEE11g and Oracle Database 11g on same machine but these two mustbe isntalled in different Oracle_Homes.

      On PC then you will have two Oracle_Homes . You have to change Oracle_Home manually depending on activity.

      for windows use set ORACLE_HOME=[path]

      I think you also get ORACLE_HOME selector in your start menu

    35. Pree_171182 says:

      Hi,
      After much struggle, I have successfully installed OBIEE 11g, but, when I enter http://localhost:9704/analytics, I am unable to open the login page. It shows that “IE cannot display the webpage”. Pls let me know if I am missing something here, before trying to access the url…

    36. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Pree_171182,
      Check if Service related to OBIEE is running or not . Also check if hostname is correct or use IP address of your machine where OBIEE is running.

    37. Pree_171182 says:

      Atul,
      The EM is opening, so there should not be any problems with the services. I have tried using the IP address of my machine as well, but it still does not open. Pls let me know how I should check the hostname.

    38. ndevi says:

      Hi,

      When I installed OBIEE 11g on my laptop, the hostname used was my PC name instead of localhost. I think please try http://:9704/analytics if you have installed it on a PC.

      Also the configuration file that was generated during installation might contain the link.

      Thanks,
      NDEVI

    39. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Pree_171182, EM uses different service and listens on different port. Please use actual hostname instead of localhost as suggested by Ndevi

    40. Pree_171182 says:

      I have been using the link: http://localhost:9704/analytics for accessing. I have tried all combinations like replacing the localhost with my system IP and my system name, but still face the same issue…
      Can u pls tell me where would I get the config file generated during installation?

      @ Pree_171182

      Login to WebLogic Cosnole and see if bi_server1 is running . If not start it as shown in
      http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E14571_01/bi.1111/e13880/T526682T526687.htm#5864392

    42. Pree_171182 says:

      Hi Atul,
      The bi_server1 is not running. I started the services but, it gave me the following messages:
      For server bi_server1, the Node Manager associated with machine ******** is not reachable.
      All of the servers selected are currently in a state which is incompatible with this operation or are not associated with a running Node Manager or you are not authorized to perform the action requested. No action will be performed.

    43. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Pree_171182,

      Check this for your node manager issue

      http://onlineappsdba.com/index.php/2010/04/10/weblogic-error-starting-managed-server-from-console-node-manager-associated-with-this-machine-is-not-reachable/

      To start managed server from console, your node manager should be running.
      +
      Your managed server should be targeted to machine on which your node manager is running .

      Other option is to start your managed server from command line

      Check http://onlineappsdba.com/index.php/2008/08/03/oracle-weblogic-server-startupshutdown/

      startManagedWebLogic.cmd [managed_server_name] [admin_url]

      startManagedWebLogic.cmd bi_server1 http://hostname:7001

    44. Pree_171182 says:

      Atul,
      In 11g, in results section we will get 500 rows per page by default. If we want to download this report, at max only 500 rows get downloaded even if there are more than 2000 rows. How can we download all the results? Or how can we display more than 500 rows in a page…?

    45. Pree_171182 says:

      Thanks atul,
      My web console is running now. But, when I try to access it using the url http://localhost:9704/analytics, I still get an error like: Error 500–Internal Server Error
      From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol — HTTP/1.1:
      10.5.1 500 Internal Server Error
      The server encountered an unexpected condition which prevented it from fulfilling the request.

    46. Atul Kumar says:

      @Pree_171182,
      It looks like your bi_server1 did not start properly.

      Check for error messages in managed server log file at $DOMAIN_HOME/servers/bi_server1/logs

    47. Pree_171182 says:

      Thanks atul,
      My problem is resolved. But, I need to know if we can change the number of rows appearing in a page (in answers) to more than 500 rows per page. Also, if excel can download all data and not the data appearing in a page? Please help. Im not getting anything substantial from google.

      Hi Pree_171182,

      could you please share how did you resolve Error 500–Internal Server Error…

      Hi Atul,

      My requirement is to install OBIEE 11g – “Enterprise Install” on windows 2008 R2 Server.
      I have successfully installed on one server but when I tried to “Scale out BI System” on second server, it failed after 75% completion. The issue is that the Installer running on second server is not able to start the newly created Managed Server bi_server2. When i checked on the admin console on first server, the status for bi_server2 is “FAILED_NOT_RESTARTABLE” where as bi_server1 is running at port 9704.
      I checked that node manager is not able to run on second server. I started the node manager on server 1 by first stopping the windows service and manually running the startNodeManager.cmd. I am not able to do the same on second server.
      Please help…

    50. Atul Kumar says:

      @ vikasarora4444,
      Check log file at $DOMAIN_HOME/servers/bi_server1/logs
      and update error messsage here, depending on error message I can suggest resolution.

    51. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Nitin Aggarwal,
      What error message you get when you try to start NodeManager on second node ?

      Issue is that Admin Server on Node1 is unable to contact Node Manager on Node2 to start Managed Server on Node2.

      Follow these steps on Node2
      1. Shutdown any bea service on node2 -> task manager -> Processes -> select check box show processes from all users ->

      kill bea***.exe

      then try starting Node Manager from command prompt on node2

      Hi Atul,

      I just referred the documentation. It says –
      ———————————————–
      Considerations and Limitations of Enterprise Install Type for Scaling Out Existing Installations –

      The following considerations and limitations apply to the Enterprise Install type when scaling out existing installations:

      Do not use the Enterprise Install type to scale out an existing installation on an AIX operating system or with a 64-bit JVM, such as with a supported 64-bit operating system. Use the Software Only Install type instead. For details
      ———————————————–

      I am trying the scale out on 2nd server which is windows 2008(64 bit). Just want to confirm whether it can be done or not on this server?

      Thanks

      @ Nitin Aggarwal,
      Yes it is possible to scale out BI on windows 2008.

      My recommendation would be first go through

    56. Nitin Aggarwal says:

      Thanks Atul,

      I have 1 more question –

      I have installed OBIEE 11g on first server(Enterprise Install) and now for scale out on 2nd server, I need to use the “Software only install” option. Now, on 2nd server, i have already run the RCU utility. Do i need to again install weblogic on this 2nd server or I can use the same weblogic home on first server.

      Suppose, if I need to install it on 2nd server then on Oracle Site, a generic version is available for 64 bit. Its a zip file. I have installed latest jdk/jre on this server but even then I am getting error when i try to run the installer.jar.

      Please let me know the steps for installing Weblogic (generic) via a zip file(no installer available for this).

    57. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Nitin Aggarwal

      Q: On 2nd server, i have already run the RCU utility.

      RCU is to create schema in database which you must have already done during OBIEE install on first machine so you should not run RCU again .

      Q: Do i need to again install weblogic on this 2nd server or I can use the same weblogic home on first server.

      A: You will have to install weblogic on second machine. If this is 64 bit machine then install 64 bit JDK and then use this JDK to install weblogic from jar file.

      Check this post on how to install 64 bit weblogic http://onlineappsdba.com/index.php/2009/11/23/how-to-install-weblogic-server-on-64-bit-os-linux-solaris/ (This post is for Solaris)

      Suppose, if I need to install it on 2nd server then on Oracle Site, a generic version is available for 64 bit. Its a zip file. I have installed latest jdk/jre on this server but even then I am getting error when i try to run the installer.jar.

      Please let me know the steps for installing Weblogic (generic) via a zip file(no installer available for this).

      Q. Suppose, if I need to install it on 2nd server then on Oracle Site, a generic version is available for 64 bit. Its a zip file.

      A: Is this zip file or jar file ? Paste link you are using to download .

      Use WebLogic version which is certified with your OBIEE version .

      Update OBIEE, Weblogic and JDK version you are using on machine2 .

      I am not using any shared or network drive for installation and providing absolute paths only.

    59. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Nitin,
      Since you are using 11.1.1.3 OBIEE installer so in my view you should use weblogic 10.3.3 weblogic i.e. 11g R1 PS2.

      With 10.3.3 I think supported Java is 1.6.18 so try with that.

      Check Oracle My Support for more information (In my view 1.6_23 should also work but you are using JRE and not JDK. Make sure you have installed 64 bit of JDK (not JRE) and use -d64 )

      C:\Program Files\Java\jre6>java -jar D:\wls1034_generic\installer.jar

      In above command you are not using JDK and not using 64 bit (-d64) as mentioned in my previous post check again carefully http://onlineappsdba.com/index.php/2009/11/23/how-to-install-weblogic-server-on-64-bit-os-linux-solaris/

    60. Nitin Aggarwal says:

      Hi Atul,

      Here is the information:-

      JDK Installed – jdk-6u23-windows-x64.exe
      JRE Installed – jre-6u23-windows-x64.exe

      Now, I am trying to install weblogic version 10.3.3

      When i tried using jdk –
      ————————-
      C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_23\bin>java -d64 -jar D:\wls1033_generic\installer.jar

      Unrecognized option: -d64
      Could not create the Java virtual machine.

      Then I tried removing -d64 switch –
      ———————————-
      C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_23\bin>java -jar D:\wls1033_generic\installer.jar

      it gives the same error as before –

      java.lang.classNotFoundException
      com.bea.cie.gpr.internal.model.DelegateHomeListHelper

      Please direct me to the link where I can find 64 bit jdk 1.6 update 18.

    61. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Nitin Aggarwal,
      Apologies for -d64 , -d64 option is used only for 32/64 bit Hybrid JDKs only like HP-PA or Solaris64.

      Try this
      http://www.oldapps.com/java.php?old_java=55

      If this is an issue , dowbnload executable version of weblogic 10.3.3 (this will come with 32 bit JDK of 16_18) see if that works.

    62. Nitin Aggarwal says:

      Hi Atul,

      I tried installing weblogic via installer(32 bit). Installation was successful but when i tried to install obiee 11g “Software only install”, it throws the following error – “unable to install or configure the product on a 32 bit JVM on a 64 bit machine”.

      Please advice

      Regards
      Nitin Aggarwal

    63. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Nitin Aggarwal,
      Yes I was expecting this error so it is confirmed that We need 64 bit JDK

      Install 64 bit JDK 1.6_18 and then user this JDK to install WebLogic

      See if 64 bit Sun JDK for windows is available at
      http://www.oldapps.com/java.php?old_java=55

      Or JRockit http://download.oracle.com/otn/bea/jrockit/jrmc-3.1.2-1.6.0-windows-x64.exe ( Oracle JRockit Mission Control 3.1.2 under Previous JRockit version in Windows x86-64 at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/jrockit/downloads/index.html )

      @ Severin,

      In your case error message is ” An error occurred while starting the domain. ” which means issue is while starting Admin Server .

      To find out root cause for Admin Start up check admin server log which should be at $DOMAIN_HOME/servers/Admin/logs

      where domain_home is domain directory (default is user_projects/domains/base_domain) in middleware home

    67. Severin says:

      Thanks for help Atul. I cannot find that log. Could be because the install process still hangs at 0%?
      The closest path to your suggest is this:
      user_projects/domains/bifoundation_domain/servers/AdminServer and there is only a directory named Security containing a boot.properties file :(

      It appears everything is installed, only lacks the configuration. I have managed to start the weblogic server admin. How do I manually deploy the BI Publisher?
      From online tutorials looks like i need a xmlpserver.war to launch which i cannot find.

    70. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Severin,
      What version of windows you are using .

      If this is windows 7 or vista then disable user access control (UAC) restart machine and then try installing again.

    71. Severin says:

      Windows 7. I just did a fresh new install with UAC disabled and.. it hangs at 0% progress Creating domain. Im really running out of options.

      Atul, is there a link to download OBIEE 11+ for Sun Sparc version

      thanks
      Ram
      bramanan@hotmail.com

    73. Atul Kumar says:

      @ bramanan

      I don’t think OBIEE 11+ is yet certified on Sun Sparc (as of april 2011)

      Check certification matrix at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/bi-enterprise-edition/bi-11gr1certmatrix-166168.xls

    74. deepsa says:

      Hi Atul, i need to install obiee 11g on one system and weblogic is on another system, which option should i select while installing obiee 11g ??

    75. Atul Kumar says:

      @ deepsa,
      In OBIEE 11g, there are two type of components

      a) Java Component – Deployed on WebLogic Domain
      b) System Components – managed by OPMN (These are old style presentation, BI Server, scheduler…)

      Do you mean you want to run Java components on one machine and System component (OPMN related) on other.

      In any topology, weblogic & OBIEE binary must be installed on all machines which are part of OBIEE 11g

    76. Prabu R says:

      Hi Atul,

      I am new to OBIEE and I want to Install OBIEE 11g in my client machine. Can you please share me the PREREQUISITES and Installation guide/steps which are required to Install OBIEE.

      Kindly do the needful.

    77. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Prabhu R,

      For which Operating System ?

    78. Deepsa says:

      Hi Atul,

      Thanks !!

      Now i have installed Weblogic10.3 on linux-64 system and then installed OBIEE 11.1.1.5.0 software only installation in the same middleware(as used by weblogic)on the same linux-64 system.
      So far so good.
      Now i am able to see wlserver, Oracl_BI1 and /opt/beainstall/Oracle/Middleware/user_projects/domains/Weblogic/ObiEE11g(domain name)…..
      But i am not able to see Instance folder ?????

      How to get this folder?
      Do i need to do any more configuration ?
      How to make obiee11g run ??
      I dont have any clue for next step..Please guide me here…..:)

    79. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Deepsa,
      If you did just software only installation then you shouldn’t have user_projects/domains/Weblogic/ObiEE11g either.

      To create/configure domain and OBIEE server run config.sh but from $ORACLE_HOME/bin

      You will then get option to configure OBIEE domain and instance (OPMN services)

    80. Deepsa says:

      Hi Atul,
      I got user_projects/domains/Weblogic/ObiEE11g from Weblogic installation. and then i started configuring from $ORACLE_HOME/bin and
      choosen extending node option(3rd one in configruation step) and got the error.. here is the story.
      https://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jspa?messageID=9851660#9851660

      Now the latest update is i am not able to start weblogic.
      I discarded the config installation and again tried . but now not able to start weblogic, its giving an error like: could not create the java virtual machine @ linux

    82. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Raj,

      What is message reported in Admin Server log file ?

      $DOMAIN_HOME/servers/AdminServer/logs

    83. […] Install OBIEE 11g  – Follow OBIEE installation steps here, here and here. This step will create middleware home (MW_HOME), OBIEE Oracle Home (ORACLE_HOME) and […]

    84. Rahul says:

      Atul,

      do you have the OBIEE 11g installation document on linux, can you please mail me the document b.ram85@ymail.com

    85. Rahul says:

      Atul,

      Thanks for the response. I had uploaded the 4 files and rcu file in linux and extratced all of them. Now do i need to combine all the 4 files into a single directory/folder? can you please help me.

    86. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Rahul,
      No, just start rcu from rcu disk to create BI schema and then BI software from Disk1/runInstaller of OBIEE software

    87. Rahul says:

      Atul,

      Thanks for the response. So after i start the installation from directory where i uploaded the files eg: d001/home/4files along with RCU

      no when i start the installation as you suggested will it create the directories on its own like eg: d001/home/bihome and d001/home/rcu

      something like this?

      i am a newbie please bear with me

      Atul Sir,
      Thanks. I the issue is solved.
      we are using JNDI for Scheduler, so need to change one line in quartz-config.properties.

      from:
      org.quartz.jobStore.driverDelegateClass=org.quartz.impl.jdbcjobstore.oracle.OracleDelegate

      To:
      org.quartz.jobStore.driverDelegateClass=org.quartz.impl.jdbcjobstore.StdJDBCDelegate

      & then restart the xmlpserver.ear file.
