This request is related to the Oracle inventory. This is a request to enhance the scanner to be able to get the list of the oraInventory from a file.
This is needed when then is no unique central inventory but multiple oraInventory in case the Oracle installations on a same server are fully separated from each others and Oracle not necessarily installed via the Oracle Universal Installer.

This feature could be very usefull.

The central inventory is not very suitable. Because we don't want a common filesystem or file for différents oracle databases on our servers. If there's a mistake, we can crash all the databases.

It will be more suitable to have a different inventoy for this installed software, which parse a specific file, giving a list of inventories. Or which parse the appropriate content into all 'oraInventory' folders.

I vote FOR this idea!
