Luminis IV on Oracle 12c

Submitted by blackwellbs on Thu, 12/11/2014 - 09:41

Is anyone doing this? It's not certified by Ellucian and they're not going to explore it. Was wondering if anyone rolled the dice. The Luminis database is so simplistic I think it would be fine.

Luminis Version:

I went through this with Ellucian support. If Your luminis DB is using 12C then you are out of luck. If Banner is using 12C but luminis stays on 11g then the prognosis is good. The only thing to be mindful of is the LMB. You will need to configure it to run against a 12C banner install. I fixed that by updating the JDBC driver in the Events lib directory with ojdbc6.jar (remove ojdbc14.jar) and changing a couple references to point to the new JDBC driver.

In Events/config/event_providers.plist, replace all instances of:

JDBCDriver = "oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver";


JDBCDriver = "oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver";

and change Events/bin/startevents by replacing $LIB_DIR/ojdbc14.jar with $LIB_DIR/ojdbc6.jar.
