April 3, 2010 5 Comments
Today I installed recently released WebLogic 11gR1 (10.3.2.0) on Windows 7. This post layout the screenshots as I went along the installation process. OTN has installation steps for older version Oracle WebLogic Server 10.3 on Linux Platform under Oracle-By-Example Tutorials.
- Download the Net Installer from OTN.
- Run the net_oepe111130_wls1032_win32.exe program.
- Create a new Middleware Home. In the path field, enter D:\Oracle\Middleware and clickNext.
- Ignore registration for Security Updates.
- Specify a download location.
- Choose Typical Install type which will install WebLogic Server and Enterprise Pack for Eclipse.
- Choose product installation directories. I have kept defaults.
- Installation is complete now. Keep the Run Quickstart box checked. It will launch Quickstart from where we will configure WebLogic server. Click on “Getting started with WebLogic server 10.3.2″.
Creating a New WebLogic Server Domain
A domain is the basic administration unit for Oracle WebLogic Server. It consists of one or more Oracle WebLogic Server instances and logically related resources and services that are managed collectively, as one unit. The basic domain infrastructure consists of one Administration Server and optional Managed Servers and clusters. To create a new WebLogic Server Domain, we perform the following steps:
- Clicking on “Getting started with WebLogic server 10.3.2″ in step-8 above launches the configuration wizard.
- Create a new WebLogic domain.
- Choose the default in Select Domain Source screen.
- Specify Domain Name and Location.
- Configure administrator user name and password. I have entered weblogic as administrator user name, but preferably enter something like “admin”.
- In the Configure Server Start Mode and JDK step, select the Production Mode option and click Next.
- In Select Optional configuration screen, select all three.
- Keep the defaults in Administration Server configuration screen.
- We then configure two Managed Servers for our installation.
- In the Configure Clusters screen, click Next
- In the Configure Machines step, click Next
- In the Configure RDBMS Security Store Database step, retain the default values and click Next.
- Review the Configuration Summary and click Create.
- In the Creating Domain screen, mark the checkbox “Start Admin Server” and then click Done.
- It then starts the WebLogic Server instance in command prompt. Supply the user name and password when asked for.
- We can see the WebLogic Server instance in RUNNING mode.
- To start the Web console, open the browser, enter http://localhost:7001/console and click Go. In the Login screen, supply the user name and password created earlier.
- The home page for the Web console is displayed.
