Oracle WebLogic Advanced Installation- step by step guide

This post discusses Oracle WebLogic installation with advanced settings such as Cluster, Managed Server and configured to listen on custom port.

Following are the high-level steps for WebLogic installation:

  • The most important step in oracle installations is the version, one should go through the compatibility matrix of the oracle before making any installations. This will avoid later affects due to incompatibility. Dealing with such issues is a night mare, I faced it in the past.
  • Java JDK/JRE should be installed as a prerequisite. WebLogic might ask you for the Java location if not installed it comes with default JDK, which may also be selected.
  • Download Oracle weblogic 10.3.4 from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/weblogic/downloads/wls-main-097127.html
  • Download the version compatible to your Operating System
    • Mine was windows 32bit OS – wls1034_oepe111161_win32.exe
    • For 64 bit machines there is a JAR version of the software available (wls1034_generic.jar) if your’s is 64bit OS this is the jar you’ve to download
  • Complete software is about 1 GB
  • Installation is quite easy, weblogic creates a folder Middleware which will be used later for storing all Middleware components (this is popularly called as MW_HOME)
  • Issue the command “JAVA_HOME/bin/java -jar wls1034_generic.jarfor installing on 64 bit JVM
  • After successful installation of the WebLogic next step is to creating a domain

WebLogic Installation:

  • Run the exe or the jar file
  • You should see ‘Preparing the installer’ screen

  • Wait till you see the next screen

  • Select Next, Create new middle ware home or select existing middle ware home. When you are installing weblogic for the first time on the machine you’ll see only ‘create middle

  • Select Next, select default options

  • Select Typical and click Next
  • You’ll see summary page

  • Click Next installs the software. That’s it!

Next step is to create domain. All the new domains gets registered into user_projects folder

Creating Domain:

  • Start -> Programs -> Oracle WebLogic -> QuickStart
  • Click on ‘Getting started with Weblogic 10.3.4’

  • Select ‘Create new weblogic domain’

  • Select ‘Generate a domain configured automatically to support following products’
  • Select Next
  • Enter Domain name: MyDomain, domain location points to default <MW_HOME>\user_projects\domains

  • Enter username/password: weblogic/<pwd>

  • Select default options, select development mode and point to the JDK location that comes with weblogic server or point to JDK location

  • You should now see ‘Select Optional configuration’ screen. By default weblogic domain server runs on 7001 port, for any reason if you want to configure it to run on a different port you should select ‘Administration Server’ option. Also if you want to create ‘Managed Servers, clusters’ you should select the option

  • Click Next, You may select default name ‘AdminServer’, I configured the domain to listen on port 9001 and SSL Port on 9002 (if SSL is required)

  • Click Next to configure Managed Server

  • Click Next to configure Clusters

  • Chose default options, click Next. Chose the managed server to be added to the cluster

  • Click Next to configure Machines

  • Click Next to select Admin Server and Managed Server that you’ve configured to add it to cluster

  • Click Next, this is the last summary screen. Recheck if this is what is your desired setup, else you can go back change the settings.
  • If you think you are done with the configurations, click on ‘Create’ button. This should create the domain for you.
  • Once the creation is complete click ‘Done’
  • Go to start -> Programs -> Oracle WebLogic -> User Projects -> MyDomain ->Start AdminServer For WebLogic
  • Wait till the server shows ‘RUNNING’ mode
  • Go to the browser http://localhost:9001/console
  • Login with weblogic/<password>
  • That’s it!

That’s all folks, hope this post helped you installing WebLogic Server. Let me know in case of any queries.

My next posts are going to discuss about Oracle Internet Directory, Oracle Virtual Directory, Oracle Identity Manager, Enterprise User Security etc. That’s all for now!
