Installing an application
or module refers to making its physical file or directory known to
WebLogic Server. After you have installed the application or module, you
can start it so that users can begin using it:
If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
In the left
pane of the Administration Console, select
In the right
pane, click Install.
Install Application Assistant, locate the
application or module you want to install. If you specify an exploded
directory, WebLogic Server installs all components it finds in and
below the specified directory.
Specify whether you want to target the installation as an
application or a shared library.
Select the servers and/or clusters to which you want to deploy
the application or module.
Note: If you have not created additional Managed
Servers or clusters, you will not see this assistant page
Optionally update additional deployment settings. These settings

How the source files are made available to all targeted
Managed Servers and clusters.
Typically, the default values are adequate.
Review the configuration settings you have specified, and click
Finish to complete the installation.
Note: If you install an application that follows the
below directory structure and there is no deployment plan in the
/plan directory, WebLogic server automatically
creates a deployment plan for you.
If you chose to immediately go to the deployment's configuration
screen, click the tabs to set additional configuration settings for
the application or module. If you chose to change this information
later, you are returned to the Deployments table, which now
includes your newly-installed application or module.
To activate these changes, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Activate Changes. Not all changes take effect immediately—some require a restart (see Use the Change Center).
