Get Your Own Oracle Applications R12 Instances!

It is as easy as 1-2-3

If you are like me, you have been implementing Oracle Applications for several years. And over those years, you have always wanted to have your own personal copy of Oracle Applications that you can test new procedures or simply keep your skills sharp. However, technology and the limitations imposed by your own personal skill set has proven to be barriers to accomplishing that goal.

Now that technology has made it practical for individuals to have their own personal instance, you still lack the skills necessary to perform a complicated Oracle Financials install. You will have to either take the time and effort to become technical enough to install your own instance or find a DBA to install one for you. Let's face it. Most DBA's are too busy to find the spare time to install an instance for himslef let alone a friend. I know because I have asked. And as a functional consultant, you do not have the desire to become a DBA even if it is just to play one on TV.

Well, your problem has been solved.

Due to my inquisitive nature and the patience of Job, I have taken the time and effort to install the Oracle Financials R12 instance so that you do not have to. Well if you are a DBA you are saying big deal. I can do this in my sleep. That may be so. However, it took me, a functional/technical consultant with 17 years of experience, much longer to do it. The reasoning behind this endeavor is quite simple, it is worth it. Many times on projects, we only deal with certain aspects of say one or two modules. Depending on the length of projects, it could be years before we get the chance to implement that module again. In the interim, our skills could get a little rusty. As you know, in technology, this could be the difference between whether or not you get a contract or not.

The understanding of the fact that I needed my own personal instance to stay competitive(i.e. paid) coupled with the desire to gain more knowledge in my chosen field of endeavor drove me to embark upon the monumental task of installing my own instance. Well a couple of months later and a new found respect for those geeky guys that labor away so faithfully in those dark dungeons known as server rooms, I have finally completed the task. I know. You are saying that this guy is not that smart. Ok, you may be right about that. I wanted to quit several times. In fact, I did. I just kept coming back.

After the initial install, I completed several more installs of a Fresh install as well as a Vision install. I had to be sure that I had the process down so that I could duplicate it anytime.

Right now you are probably saying enough of the small talk. How is this boring story going to help me get my own instance? Well, upon completion of this task it dawned upon me that there are many other people like myself out there that would want their own instance but do not have the couple of months to spare to learn how to do an install. Here is what I am offering: I will do the install for you. that's right, I will be your own personal DBA for a day.

How It Works...

Create an eDelivery Account with a temporary password

Submit Payment along with your account and shipping information to me

I download the software from Oracle eDelivery using your account and install on a portable hard drive.

Upon completion, I ship the portable hard drive to you along with installation instructions.

Estimated Time to Complete:

Total Time from start to finish: ~6 days

NOTE: We are not authorized to resell Oracle software. To do so would violate Oracle's copyright laws. In order to remain complient with Oracle's software policy, you must create your own eDelivery account and allow us to download and install the software on your behalf as a service. After the installation is complete, you can update your temporary password for security reasons.

Portable Hard Drive vs Hosted Solution

My first approach was to host a Vision instance on my own servers and provide access to members. However, that proved impractical due to cost and time to implement. While looking for a more personal solution, I stumbled upon portable hard drive. In the past, 1 TB drives were bulky and were too cumbersome for traveling consultants. Upon further analysis, a portable solution makes better for several reasons:

Each Oracle Application instance is scripted to start and stop automatically each time you power up and power down each machine. Once you follow the simple installation instructions, running your own personal instance will be like running any other application on your laptop or desktop. You do not have to be technical to maintain. With VirtualBox, you can easily roll back to any snapshot with a simple click of a button. Once the server is running, you connect to it like any other Oracle instance.

Let's Get Started

OK. I am convinced. I am ready to get my very own Oracle Instance. What do I need to do to get this started?

Create an eDelivery Account with a temporary password

  • Go to and create an account. Be sure to create a password that you will change immediately after I have downloaded the software. It usually takes about 24 hours or less to hear back from Oracle.
  • Once you have received the confirmation email, forward that email along with your username and password along to I will validate that the account is valid. Once I have validated the account, I will send you an email.
  • Once you receive the email proceed to step 2 below.

I know, I know. This seems like it is a convoluted process. However, this must be done. I am not an authorized reseller of Oracle's software. You are not buying software from me. I am selling a service. That service is the installation and configuration of an Oracle instance on your behalf. Once you receive your Oracle instance, you must comply with all rules and regulations that come with that instance.
