dbca now makes it easy to configure OMF on file systems

Up until – and including – Oracle 12.1 I always found it not-quite-so-straight-forward to create a new database using Database Creation Assistant (dbca) and configure it with Oracle Managed Files (OMF) on a file system in silent mode. I really like to use OMF in my lab databases as it saves me a lot of typing. I have also seen Oracle databases deployed in the cloud on file systems without ASM. So I was quite happy to see the syntax for dbca -silent -createDatabase was extended.
