The BEA Workshop for WebLogic Platform installation includes several workspaces that contain sample project code. The samples are installed in ZIP files that you can open with Workshop for WebLogic. This topic describes how to import these sample projects into Workshop for WebLogic.
To open a sample workspace for the first time, or to recreate a samples workspace in its original state, follow these instructions:
Feel free to modify the samples as you wish. You can always recreate the samples workspace in its original state by running through the procedure above starting with a new empty workspace directory. However, be aware that WebLogic Server does not allow deployment of projects with duplicate names from different locations on disk. See the note below to avoid this pitfall.
WebLogic Server does not support the deployment of projects with the same name from two different locations on disk.
For this reason, anytime you deploy a sample or run through a tutorial, you should check your server for previous deployments of the same code. If your server already has a deployment of the sample or tutorial code, you should either (1) undeploy any previous code, (2) create a new server domain, or (3) deploy the code from the same location as the previous deployment.
