With the latest version of SOA/BPM Suite 12c (12.1.3), Oracle provides installations in 2 modes: Development and Production.
In the Development mode, and unlike previous versions, with 12c you can choose to download, install and run a complete environment on your local machine. All with only 1 installation file.
