Oracle Technology Network (OTN) tips

Oracle tips by Kumar Viswanathan

This is an excerpt from the book Oracle Application Change Management Pack ACMP Handbook by Kumar Viswanathan.

Oracle Technology Network serves as a repository which allows developers, architects and DBAs to download complete documentation regarding installation of various Oracle Products, download the product software for installation and use it for testing and learning purposes. Oracle Technology Network (OTN) allows registered users in enhancing their skills and also to build, deploy, manage, optimize application to test their solutions.


In our industry, it is very important to upgrade our skills, get knowledge of new Oracle technologies, connect with Oracle experts through Oracle Community, implement and design competitive, reliable and efficient solutions. The same credentials that were used or created for My Oracle Support can be used to login to Oracle Technology Network (OTN). The web URL to access OTN is as below:

Click on the Sign In/Register link and enter your login credentials, once done the user home page is seen as below (refer Figure 2.8).

For downloading the Oracle Product software, click on the Downloads Tab, all products will be shown as a menu (refer Figure 2.9)

Figure 2.9: Download TAB in OTN



Let’s take an example of downloading the Oracle 12c database.

Click on Downloads à Database à Oracle Database.

The following page will be seen (refer Figure 2.10).

You need to check Accept License Agreement, then start downloading the required database installation files as per the platform you wish to download.


Similarly, you need to do the same for other Oracle products that are listed for being available for download as per Oracle Technology Network.

For downloads such as Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle Linux or if we intend to use VM (Virtual Machine) templates for installation we can directly go to the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud and download the same. OTN also directs us to Oracle Software Delivery Cloud to download any Oracle Applications related products or even Oracle Linux
