Answer / alicia
All the above is correct except for #4. You do need the
license.bea for WL 9&10. The difference is that there is a
generic license.bea file for each version that you can
download from Oracle. No need to request a custom
license.bea file. In WLS 10 MP2 and above, the downloaded
software comes with a fully blown license so no need to even
download a new one from Oracle.
