Weblogic and Oracle HTTP Server install with /tmp

Lately I have had to install Weblogic 12.1 and OHS 12.1 on a Linux server in silent mode.
Somehow, there was very small space left on the default temporary filesystem /tmp.
I was having to find a way to install within the non-default /tmp.

Not so simple to find the option in the command line, that's why this article as a note for myself, maybe it also can help others.

Weblogic 12.1.3 silent install with non-default temp directory
$JAVA_HOME/bin/java –jar fmw_12. -silent –responseFile /appl/product/software/Weblogic/response_file.rsp –invPtrLoc /home/psoft/oraInventory/oraInst.loc -novalidation

OHS 12.1.3 silent install with non-default temp directory, due to a bug, setting TEMP or TMPDIR environment variables has no effect (see note #1600443.1). 
The same option can be used for EMC13c which needs 10Gb of temp space (note #2095000.1)...
./fmw_12. -silent -invPtrLoc /home/psoft/oraInventory/oraInst.loc -responseFile /appl/product/software/OHS/response_file.rsp

Note :
1. the two options are slighlty different... one cannot be used in place of the other
2. the option must be set at 1st position, error otherwise.
