Well first of all we require JDK (Java Development Kit) 1.5 or above to be installed. I recommend to go for JDK 1.6
We will be creating a new Domain in Web Logic for the purpose of learning Web Logic and Oracle service bus. We will name this domain as durgeshLearning. Here goes the steps for creating and starting the durgeshLearning (or any name you chose) domain.
Open Web Logic Configuration Wizard and start installation:
Click Start->All Programs->Oracle WebLogic->WebLogic Server 10gr3->Tools->Configuration Wizard.
It will open up the Configuration Wizard.
- Select Create a new WebLogic Domain and click Next.
- Select Generate a domain configured automatically to support the following products and select all three products (first one is selected by default) and click Next.
We select all three so that we have Workspace created simultaneously (yes we can do it later as well) and OSB is also created at the same time.
- Provide the admin userid and password here. We provided weblogic as user id and password. You should give it something more complex if you are planning to use it in some production environment or if you want it to make secured. Click next to continue.
- Make sure you select Development and Sun JDK in the Startup mode and JDK selection respectively. You must have JDK (Yes we are talking about JDK and not JRE) above 1.5 already installed to continue from this step, else install JDK 1.5 or above now. Click Next to continue.
- We are not going to change any default configuration, so leave No selected and click Next to proceed.
- Give your domain name and location here. We are giving it as durgeshLearning and leaving the domain location to default. Click Create to continue.
- It will now create a new domain and enable Start Admin Server check box. Select it and click Done to start the admin server and close the configuration wizard.
Voila, we are done with the creation of our new Web Logic Domain.
