Install Oracle 19c – RPM Package Mode

Simple and easy, as it should always be.

For years I wanted to witness this moment, install oracle database in a single, simple and fast method.

With the current CI-CD paradigm, continuous deployments, continuous delivery and continuous integration, Oracle really had to provide such a solution.

Through this methodology, which involves performing the installation and configuration of the database, in a simple and agile way, it can be part of a Jenkins process or TeamCity job.


We are going to review the steps that we are going to execute:

  • Configuration of the Operating System and Download Packages.
  • Installation of the database Software.
  • Install a Database, Oracle 19, Container and a PDB.
  • Install Listener and OS Services.

Hands On

Obtain the RPM file and configure the Operating System
