Oracle Product Categories and Version Specifications

Oracle End-End Understanding:

I am going to discuss few important things, I have analyzed  about Oracle.

Use Case Scenario :  Oracle WebLogic Server 11g R1

1. How to download oracle products based on category  from OTN  or e-delivery ?
Find Category to which, the product belongs to, from Oracle Global Licensing and price list pdfs in the Oracle WebSite.


a.Oracle Technology-price-list
Category: fusion-applications-price-list

b.Let's go to https://edelivery.oracle.com/ :
Select Category and platform and search for your product:
Oracle WebLogic Server 11gR1 (10.3.4) Generic and Coherence  :  MD5    A0D60B69F06E20053E1886E6256824DE    

Note: Verify the integrity of the downloaded  file using  md5sum command  in Linux:
Sample output: ( Alpha numeric number is the md5sum number. Download file's md5sum should be same as md5sum number from edelivery.oracle.com ).


md5sum example
[root@RHEL6 RTD2]# md5sum V16586-01.zip
cdbbfb89d3c0dfa9a1466bb2cd35ee93  V16586-01.zip


c.If b fails, Go to OTN:
Download the latest, last and last to last versions if necessary.

1.http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/weblogic/downloads/wls-for-dev-1703574.html
2.Get the latest and last version downloads excluding Developer Edition.
Look at Additional Information at the end of the page for related products:
-Oracle WebLogic Server Web Server Plugins 1.1         All versions
-For information on WebLogic Server 10gR3 (10.3.0) and 11gR1 (10.3.x) Web Server Plug-In support, refer to My Oracle Support Doc ID 1111903.1 on https://support.oracle.com
3.Now, we need clarification on 10.3.x.how to do that?
a.Google for certification matrix for any oracle product:
https://www.google.co.in/#hl=en&sclient=psy-ab&q=Oracle+WebLogic+Server++11g+R1+certification+matrix&oq=Oracle+WebLogic+Server++11g+R1+certification+matrix&gs_l=hp.3..0i13i30.11937.60003.0.68817.47.38.4.5.5.0.229.5351.2j34j2.38.0.les%3B..1.0...1c.1j2.By_8PFdYBQ4&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.&fp=163e2d44851cb6f9&biw=1152&bih=700
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Installation Type    Version Supported    Processor Type    OS Version

b.we are still doubt full about 10.3.x?
Let's go back to wiki of Tim's study of WebLogic Server:
Understand the versioning from Life-time support policy guides:
