Question Anchoring a wall

Below is a rough drawing of one of the walls that I am working on. The wall will be installed on a concrete foundation pad. This wall is roughly 155 inches (12 feet 11 inches) long. You can see where the door and closet rough-ins are located. The bottom plate in each of these rough-ins will be removed of course.

I have to bolt this wall to the concrete pad. Obviously at least one bolt goes between the closet and door rough-ins. From what I understand the wall is supposed to be bolted to the concrete about every 4 feet. How do I do this? Would gluing down the area of the bottom plate under the studs be a viable option?

tapcon or ramshot

Use either tapcon screws or the .22 caliper ramshot. Put one every couple of feet.
