Manages configuration and runtime settings for Oracle Business Intelligence for a single or multimode(distributed) BI domain, using
Fusion Middleware Control: An administrative user interface that is used to manage the BI domain.
WebLogic Server Administration Console: An administrative user interface that provides advanced management for WebLogic, JEE components, and security.
Managed Server: Deployed as a JEE container that runs in dedicated Java virtual machine that provides the runtime environment for the Java-based services and applications within the system. These services and applications include BI Publisher and Visual Analyzer. An Oracle BI domain contains one or more Managed Servers that are distributed across one or more host computers.
Managed Server manages the following components:
Action Service: This component provides the dedicated web services that are required by the Action Framework and that enable an administrator to manually configure which web service directories can be browsed by users when they create actions.
Visual Analyzer: This component provides a simple-to-use visual analytical interface.
