4 Installing and Configuring Oracle WebLogic 10.3.6.0

This chapter includes these tasks:

4.1 Overview

This document provides instructions for installing and running the Oracle installer for the Oracle WebLogic 10.3.6.0.

Additional information regarding the Oracle WebLogic 10.3.6.0 is available at this link:

http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E23943_01/wls.htm

4.2 Downloading Oracle WebLogic 10.3.6.0 from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud

This section describes how to download Oracle WebLogic 10.3.6.0 from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud located at this link:

http://edelivery.oracle.com

4.3 Before You Begin

This section describes these topics:

  • 64-Bit Support - General

  • 64-Bit - JDK

  • System Requirements

  • Installation Considerations

4.3.1 64-Bit Support - General

Per the Minimum Technical Requirements for JD Edwards, Oracle WebLogic 10.3.6.0 is supported with 64-bit JDKs on 64-bit platforms. You should always review the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne MTRs for the supported platforms as described in Chapter 1, "Accessing the Minimum Technical Requirements".

4.3.2 64-Bit - JDK

The installation of Oracle WebLogic 10.3.6.0 for 64-bit platforms does not include the 64-bit JDK. Therefore, prior to installing Oracle WebLogic 10.3.6.0 for 64-bit platforms, you must manually download and install the requisite JDK. For the latest information about the specifically supported JDK, refer to the Oracle Fusion Middleware Certification document at this link:

http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/ias/files/fus ion_certification.html

Additionally, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne requires that a 64-bit JDK be installed so that the \bin directory of the JDK is located at the beginning of the PATH variable definition.

4.3.3 System Requirements

Refer to the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne MTRs (Chapter 1, "Accessing the Minimum Technical Requirements") for Oracle WebLogic 10.3.6.0 for specific system requirements including minimum processor and memory.

4.3.4 Installation Considerations

Oracle recommends the following:

  • Do not exceed a maximum of 12 characters when naming your home directory. If the name of this directory has more than 12 characters and if there are spaces in the directory name, the CLASSPATH may not be resolved properly.

  • You can install only one instance of each version of an Oracle WebLogic product in a single home directory

  • If you launch the installation from the command line or from a script, you can specify the -log option to generate a verbose installation log. The installation log stores messages (informational, warning, error, and fatal) about events that occur during the installation process.

4.4 Installing and Verifying the JDK Version

Starting with Oracle WebLogic 10.3.6.0, the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne HTML Server only supports the Oracle JDK 7+.

Note:

JRockit and HotSpot are merged into a single JVM starting with Oracle JDK 7. There is not a version called JRockit 7. The WebLogic Server does not ship with JDK 7. You can download Oracle JDK 7 from the following link:

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html

(A plus sign '+' in the version number indicates that this and its subsequent versions are supported)

To verify your version of an installed JDK, use this command from the command prompt:

>java -version

>java -d64 -version

The system returns results as shown in the example:

For Oracle JDK 7+:

This image is described in surrounding text.

Note:

Verify the returned result indicates that a 64-bit version of the JDK is installed.

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne requires that a 64-bit JDK be installed so that the \bin directory of the JDK is located at the beginning of the PATH variable definition.

Caution:

In order for the JDK 7 to function properly with the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne HTML Server, after you have installed WebLogic Server, you must manually copy JDK specific .jar files. Refer to the section of this chapter entitled: Section 4.7, "Post Installation and Configuration".

4.5 Installing Oracle WebLogic 10.3.6.0

This section describes running the Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) to install Oracle WebLogic 10.3.6.0.

  1. Run the Oracle WebLogic 10.3.6.0 installer from the image that you downloaded from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud.

    The item name of the installer is (V29856-01). The filename of the installer is:

    wls1036_generic.jar

    Upon execution, the installer starts preparing the OUI install program.

  2. Open a Command window with Run as Administrator option and run this command from the prompt:

    >java -jar wls1036_generic.jar

    Note:

    You must have a valid value for the Java_Home in your system path.
  3. On Welcome, click the Next button.

    This image is described in surrounding text.

    Note:

    The Typical selection automatically includes the Oracle Coherence server, which is part of Oracle WebLogic 10.3.6.0. This new server is a stand-alone cache server that enables dedicated JVM instances responsible for maintaining and managing cached data. As of the initial publication of this guide, the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne HTML Server has not been certified with the Oracle Coherence Server.
