Tutorial: Creating Oracle prebundled machine images for the cloud

Here's an excellent tutorial by Kiran C. Nair on how to create a custom VM image prebundled with Oracle Weblogic Server 11g and Oracle Database XE, and utilities to run at user-defined runlevels. The created images are not restricted to AWS but are fully compatible with any cloud that uses Xen as the hypervisor layer (for example, Eucalyptus Open Cloud).

The prebundled applications and utilities may be customized according to user preferences or demands.
