Is there a single document that talks about what's different in
automated installs for 7.0 and 8.1 ?

I've found
http://e-docs.bea.com/platform/docs8...ll/silent.html
vs
http://e-docs.bea.com/platform/docs7...ll/silent.html

It's not clear if, say, a 7.0 silent.xml will work in 8.1 (though there
are some similarities) I do see that what we used to do to invoke it
has changed, we used to do something like
\common\lib\dmwiz.jar" -mode=silent -silent_xml="%DOMAINXMLFILE%"
-log="%LOGFILE%"

and now it seems that config.cmd will do something like
%JAVA_HOME%\bin\java %MEM_ARGS% com.bea.plateng.wizard.WizardController
%*

Thanks for any pointers...
