The WebLogic Server Administration Console
The BEA WebLogic Server Administration Console is a Web browser-based, graphical user interface you use to manage a WebLogic Server domain. A WebLogic Server domain is a logically related group of WebLogic Server resources that you manage as a unit. A domain includes one or more WebLogic Servers and may also include WebLogic Server clusters. Clusters are groups of WebLogic Servers that work together to provide scalability and high-availability for applications. You deploy and manage your applications as part of a domain.
One instance of WebLogic Server in each domain is configured as an Administration Server. The Administration Server provides a central point for managing a WebLogic Server domain. All other WebLogic Server instances in a domain are called Managed Servers. In a domain with only a single WebLogic Server instance, that server functions both as Administration Server and Managed Server. The Administration Server hosts the Administration Console, which is a Web Application accessible from any supported Web browser with network access to the Administration Server.
You can use the System Administration Console to:
- Configure, start, and stop WebLogic Server Instances
- Configure WebLogic Server Clusters
- Configure WebLogic Server Services, such as database connectivity (JDBC), and messaging (JMS).
- Configure security parameters, including managing users, groups, and roles.
- Configure and Deploy your applications.
- Monitor server and application performance.
- View server and domain log files.
- View application deployment descriptors.
- Edit selected runtime application deployment descriptor elements.
