WebLogic Server(WLS)

Weblogic Introduction

In September 1995, Paul Ambrose and Carl Resnikoff co-founded WebLogic, Inc. which was then, took over by BEA Systems in 1998 and was named BEA Weblogic. Oracle acquired BEA in 2008 and named BEA weblogic to Oracle Weblogic. Today, Weblogic Application server is one of the most popular application server in the market. Oracle weblogic is a server software application that runs on a middle tier and commonly used with UNIX, Linux and Windows Operating System. That is, between the database and browser-based thin clients.

Below are the weblogic relases:

Weblogic 10.3.6 Installation steps on Linux



Download the WebLogic Server 11g software from Oracle Technology Network. Remember, if your
 installation is to be used for Oracle Forms, you should use Java6.
  • Java Development Kit 6 - For WebLogic 10.3.5 installations you need JDK6, but you can also use it for WebLogic 10.3.6 installations. The standard JDK is fine for development environments, but for production environments you should use JRockit.
  • JRockit - Use this in place of standard JDK for production servers requiring JDK6.
  • Java Development Kit 7 - WebLogic 10.3.6 installations can use either JDK6 or JDK7 depending on your requirements. This is the same JDK7 you will use for development or production servers. Do not use JDK7 for an Oracle Forms installation.
  • WebLogic Server 11gr1 - Generic Installer (1G) - You can use 10.3.5 or 10.3.6, but you should really be using 10.3.6, especially if you plan on using this installation as a base for Oracle Forms and Reports 11gR2 Installation on Oracle Linux 6.
  •  Download Weblogic Server from the following URL:
  •  Review documentation to meet the basic hardware and software requirements:                                        http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E15523_01/doc.1111/e14142/toc.htm
The following actions should be performed by the "root" user.
Make sure the "/etc/hosts" file contains correct entries for both the "localhost" and real host names.      localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4  sujeet.oracle.com sujeet
Create a new group and user.
groupadd -g 1000 oinstall
useradd -u 1100 -g oinstall oracle
passwd oracle
Create the directories in which the Oracle software will be installed.
mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle/product/fmw11g
mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle/config/domains
mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle/config/applications
chown -R oracle:oinstall /u01
chmod -R 775 /u01/
Append the following entries into the "/home/oracle/.bash_profile" file.
export MW_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/product/fmw11g
export WLS_HOME=$MW_HOME/wlserver_10.3
# Set to the appropriate JAVA_HOME.
#export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/jdk1.6.0_33
export JAVA_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/jrockit-jdk1.6.0_45-R28.2.7-4.1.0
#export JAVA_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/jdk1.7.0_17
export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH
Install the JDK. 
# # Java 6 as root # rpm -Uvh jdk-6u33-linux-amd64.rpm Or $ # Java 7 as Oracle $ cd /u01/app/oracle/ $ tar -xvzf /tmp/jdk-7u17-linux-x64.tar.gz
 "/etc/security/limits.d/90-nproc.conf" file, making the following change.
# From
*          soft    nproc     1024

* - nproc 16384
Run the installer as the "oracle" user.
$ $JAVA_HOME/bin/java -Xmx1024m -jar wls1035_generic.jar
$ # Or
$ $JAVA_HOME/bin/java -Xmx1024m -jar wls1036_generic.jar
Click the "Next" button on the welcome screen.

Enter the middleware home ("/u01/app/oracle/product/fmw11g") and click the "Next" button.

Either enter your support details, or attempt to uncheck the security updates checkbox. The box doesn't
actually uncheck, but presents you with a warning dialog. If you click the "Yes" button, indicating you don't
want updates, you are returned to the same screen with the box still checked. Click the "Next" button anyway.

Assuming you don't want security updates, click "Yes" and "Yes" on the subsequent warning dialogs and you
 are presented with the "Connection Failed" screen. Check the "I wish to remain uninformed..." checkbox
and click the "Continue" button. This whole process is very confusing at first. Obviously the developers
 responsible didn't really expect people to say no to security updates!

Accept the typical setup by clicking the "Next" button.

Accept the default JDK selection by clicking the "Next" button.

Accept the default product installation directories by clicking the "Next" button.

If you are happy with the summary information, click the "Next" button and wait while the installation

On the installation complete screen, uncheck the "Quickstart" checkbox and click the "Done" button.

The weblogic 10.3.6 installation is completed .

Create Domain

If you are planning to use this installation for something other than Oracle Forms and Reports Services,
you will need to create a domain. This can be done using the Quickstart utility.
$ $MW_HOME/utils/quickstart/quickstart.sh
On the Quickstart screen, click the "Getting Started with WebLogic Server 12.1.1" link.

On the welcome screen, accept the "Create a new WebLogic domain" option by clicking the "Next" button.

Select the type of domain and click the "Next" button.

Enter the desired domain name and location, then click the "Next" button.

Enter the administrator username and password, then click the "Next" button.

Select the startup mode and JDK, then click the "Next" button.

Select any required optional configuration, then click the "Next" button.

If you are happy with the information on the summary screen, click the "Create" button.

Once the domain is created, click the "Done" button.

Close the Quickstart screen, unless you have any other operations to do.
The "$MW_HOME/user_projects/domains/mydomain" directory now contains a script that can be used to start the server. Remember to use the "&" if you want control of the command line returned.
$ cd /u01/app/oracle/config/domains/mydomain
$ ./startWebLogic.sh
If you want to start the domains without typing in credentials, you need to create a boot identity file after
 the domain has been started for the first time.


Once the server is started you can access the administrator console using the "http://hostname:7001/console"

 URL. Log in using the username and password provided in the previous step.
