For Sun's support services information site, see http://www.sun.com/service/warrantiescontracts. If you have a support contract for the use of Solaris platforms, you may be able to obtain support for general Java issues (for example, JVM problems).
You can run WebLogic software on Solaris using the SDK available from Sun Microsystems at: http://java.sun.com/products/?frontpage-main. BEA recommends using the latest available versions of the JVMs supported by BEA, except where noted otherwise in our Supported Configurations document.

Configuring Your WebLogic Server Installation for Multi-Zone Operation
WebLogic Server can be run in multiple zones of a Solaris 10 system, as long as the product is installed and configured to accommodate the Solaris Zones feature. To prepare your WebLogic Server installation to accommodate Solaris Zones, complete the following procedure:
During the installation of WebLogic Server, specify a directory to which all zones will have access.
Note: BEA strongly recommends this step so you can avoid installing WebLogic Server in the default root file system. If WebLogic Server is installed in the default root, all zones will require write access to root and such widespread write access is not recommended.
Define a separate WebLogic Server domain for each zone so that the log files for each zone can go to a different location. If you choose, you can also configure a cluster to work across multiple zones as long as you provide read, write, and execute permissions to the domain directory to all the local zones participating in the cluster.
