To deploy a J2EE application or module:
- Make sure that the J2EE application or module does not require additional resources such as named JDBC data sources or JMS queues. If the application requires external resources, you must configure them in the target WebLogic Server domain before deploying the application.
- Copy the archive file or exploded archive directory for the J2EE application or module into the
of the examples server domain directory,
- Start the Examples WebLogic Server instance. In Windows, you can use the Start Menu shortcut: Start Examples Server.
- Access the application using either a Java client or the configured URI for the application.
What's Going On?
When running in development mode, WebLogic Server automatically deploys applications copied into the the
/autodeploy subdirectory of the domain directory. Auto-deployment is a simple and quick method of deploying
an application for testing or evaluation. See Auto-Deployment.
To deploy a simple JSP or HTML file:
- Make sure your JSP file does not reference a tag library or other
external resources -- such resources require additional deployment steps
that are beyond the scope of these Fast Track procedures. HTML files
do not have this restriction.
- Copy your JSP or HTML file into the
- Start the Examples WebLogic
In Windows, you can use the Start Menu shortcut: Start Examples
- In a Web browser, request the JSP or HTML file using the following URL:
is the host name of the machine running WebLogic Server
is the port number where WebLogic Server is listening for requests (7001 by default).
ile is the full name, including the
.html extension, of the JSP or HTML file you copied in step 2.
What's Going On?
The JSP or HTML file has been automatically deployed from a directory preconfigured to target
the Examples Server.
mainWebApp is deployed by default and you can place your own JSP and HTML files into the
mainWebApp exploded directory in order to quickly view or test them.
System Administrator Tools
System Administrators can use the following tools to get started:
- Administration Console
The Administration Console is a browser-based Web application that
allows you to configure and monitor your WebLogic Server domain, server
instances, and running applications and their associated resources. You
can also use the Administration Console to create new server instances
and clusters and tune application descriptors. More
After you log into the Console using the credentials
you provided during installation, click the
Help button or "How do I ...?" links for additional information.
- Configuration Wizard
Use the WebLogic Server Configuration Wizard to create
new domains, and to create templates for automating domain configuration.
