Before you can develop and run WebLogic-based applications, you must first create a domain. The Configuration Wizard guides you through the process of creating a new domain quickly and easily, by selecting the product components that you want to include in your domain, or by using domain templates.
Select this option if you want to create a domain by using an existing domain template. For information about domain templates, see Domain Template Reference.
|Note:||While using the Configuration Wizard or the WebLogic Scripting Tool to create or extend a clustered domain with a template that has applications containing application-scoped JDBC and/or JMS resources, you may need to perform additional steps (after the domain is created or extended) to make sure that the application and its application-scoped resources are targeted and deployed properly in a clustered environment. For more information on targeting and deploying application-scoped modules, see.|
|Note:||Do not use the
Table 3-1 provides information to help you choose a startup mode that suits your requirements.
You can use the demonstration digital certificates and the demonstration keystores provided by the WebLogic Server security services. With these certificates, you can design your application to work within environments secured by SSL.
WebLogic Server instances can deploy and update applications that reside in the
By default, when you start the WebLogic Server instance, the server automatically renames (rotates) its local server log file as
|Note:||If you select a JDK that is included in the installer, the Configuration Wizard creates server startup scripts to invoke the JDK. If you select a JDK that is not supplied by JDK, the Configuration Wizard does not configure the startup scripts; you must change the startup scripts manually. For more information about startup scripts, see.|
Select only those JDKs that are supported on the platform you are using. For a list of the JDKs that are supported for a specific platform, see Supported Configurations. The default selection reflects the JDK that best meets the requirements of your environment, based on the platform on which you are installing the domain.
|Note:||If you plan to use the JRockit JDK in production mode, it is recommended that you develop and test your applications by using JRockit early in the project cycle. For more information, see the.|
For information about configuring the RDBMS security store, managed servers, clusters, and machines see Customizing the Environment.
For information about specifying JDBC data sources and defining JMS file store settings, see Customizing JDBC and JMS Settings in WebLogic Domains.
BEA_HOMEis the directory that contains the product installation, and
domainis the name of the domain directory defined by the selected template.
|Note:||You cannot overwrite an existing domain. If a domain with the name you specified already exists in the selected location, you must either delete the existing domain, or specify a different name or location for the new domain.|
The Creating Domain window displays status messages during the domain creation process.
When the process is complete, the new domain is ready for use.
