Step 3 : If we want to use License Manager to register Component Application, then we need to
select License Component Application and click Continue.

this page lists all Application modules expanded to show individual components. The Boxes next to
products that are already registered are grayed without a check. Click the blue triangle to expand

Step 5 : Click on OK , We have licensed the selected component application .
Step 6 : The Products are now licensed but not ready to be used as none of the Forms/Packages
etc would have been compiled and loaded into the Database for these new Products. We
need to use adadmin to generate the files for the new Product/s as shown below.
(a) Login as applmgr and run the environment file
Su applmgr
. ./APPSORA.env
(b) run adadmin
[[email protected] ~] $ adadmin
