I am concerned about starting a process that will result in difficult to maintain elements in an incomplete installation, and then having relics left over after trying to replace an initial approach with other approaches.
If someone would be kind enough to guide me through a best practice approach from the start, I would be really grateful.
Note that I need SQL Developer in addition to the Oracle 11G R2 database server.
Is there an official distro approach to installing/maintaining Oracle 11G R2 and SQL Developer? Like a CentOS managed approach or an RHEL managed approach? Perhaps part of EPEL?
