Security Samples and Tutorials

In addition to the documents listed in Related Information, Oracle provides a variety of code samples for developers, some packaged with WebLogic Server and others available at the Oracle Technology Network (OTN) at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/indexes/samplecode/weblogic-sample-522121.html.

Security Examples in the WebLogic Server Distribution

WebLogic Server optionally installs API code examples in WL_HOME\samples\server\examples\src\examples\security, where WL_HOME is the top-level directory of your WebLogic Server installation. To install the examples, when you install WebLogic Server choose the Custom installation option and make sure that the Server examples checkbox is checked.

You can start the examples server, and obtain information about the samples and how to run them from the WebLogic Server Start menu.

The following examples illustrate WebLogic security features:

  • Java Authentication and Authorization Service

  • Outbound and Two-way SSL

Additional Examples Available for Download

Additional WebLogic Server security examples are available for download at the Oracle Technology Network (OTN) at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/indexes/samplecode/weblogic-sample-522121.html. These examples are distributed as .zip files that you can unzip into an existing WebLogic Server samples directory structure.

You build and run the downloadable examples in the same manner as you would an installed WebLogic Server example. See the download pages of individual examples for more information.
