Oracle_base & Oracle_home
What is difference between ORACLE_BASE & ORACLE_HOME.
ORACLE_BASE specifies the directory at the top of the Oracle software and administrative file structure. The value recommended for an OFAconfiguration is software_mount_point/app/oracle.
For example: /u01/app/oracle.
If you are not using an OFA-compliant system, you do not have to set
ORACLE_BASE, but it is highly recommended that you do set it.
ORACLE_HOME specifies the directory containing the Oracle software for a given release. The Optimal Flexible Architecture recommended value is:
$ORACLE_BASE/product/release. For example:
ORACLE_HOME is the software root of a specific the oracle main software release ( 7, 8, 8i, 9i, ... ).
ORACLE_BASE ist the superroot of all ORACLE_HOME'S
containing all software root directories of oracle.
