Oracle Stream Explorer is available now for download. For those unfamiliar with the product, it is a new tool based on Oracle Event Processing (OEP, formerly known as Complex Event Processing). It’s a graphical interface on OEP, hiding the rather daunting CQL (Continuous Query Language) from the user.
Installation is pretty straightforward. You start with installation of OEP 12.1.3.
Mind you that OEP is installed in a separate Oracle Home.
Where is Stream Explorer? Well, that’s disguised as patch 20225179. Install it using OPatch in your OEP home.

Configure your OEP installation with [OEP_HOME]/oep/common/bin/config.sh. Create a new domain (mostly default settings here), and start it by running:
Once the domain is fired up, go to http://localhost:7101/sx (or another host and port when applicable) and login with the user and password provided in the OEP configuration. You are done!
Next step: using Stream Explorer for realtime data monitoring.
