This appendix includes the following topics:
The Welcome screen is displayed each time you start the installer.
Specify the Middleware home directory that will serve as the central support directory for all Fusion Middleware products installed on the target system, including WebLogic Server. The default Middleware home directory is
C:\Oracle\Middleware. Each Fusion MIddleware product will be installed in its own product directory in the Middleware home directory.
If you already have a Middleware home directory on your system, you can select that directory (recommended) or create another Middleware home directory.
If you choose to create a directory by typing a new directory name in the Middleware Home Directory field, the installation program automatically creates one for you. You can also click Browse and select an existing directory from the Middleware Home Directory screen.
For more details about the Middleware home directory, see Choosing a Middleware Home Directory.
Specify whether you want to register the Oracle WebLogic Server installation with My Oracle Support. By registering, Oracle Support notifies you immediately of any security updates that are specific to your installation.
If you want to register your installation, enter your My Oracle Support email address and your My Oracle Support password.
If you want to decline registration, deselect the I wish to receive security updates via My Oracle Support check box. An Are You Sure? dialog box appears. Click Yes to continue.
Notes:If you are using a Generic installer (JAR file) to install WebLogic Server, and $JAVA_HOME points to a JDK that is later than JDK 1.60_05, you cannot deselect the I wish to receive security updates via My Oracle Support check box. In this case, if you do not want to install security updates:
Leave the Email and Support Password fields blank, and click Next. An Email Address Not Specified dialog box appears.
Click Yes. An Are You Sure? dialog box appears.
Click Yes to continue with the installation.
If a Connection Failed dialog box appears when you bypass security updates, select the I wish to remain uninformed of security updates check box and click Continue to continue the installation.
If you have not registered with Oracle Support, go to the My Oracle Support Web site,
https://support.oracle.com/CSP/ui/flash.html, and register to obtain a My Oracle Support account.
For more information about the benefits of registering your installation with My Oracle Support, see Oracle Configuration Manager Installation and Administration Guide.
Select the installation type.
Typical—All the software components included in your installation program are installed on your system. Typical installation does not include the Server Examples.
Custom—You select the software components to be installed. On Windows systems, you also have the option to install Oracle WebLogic Server Node Manager as a Windows service. If you want to install the Server Examples, you must select Custom.
For more information, see Choosing the Type of Installation.
Specify the components to be installed by selecting or clearing the appropriate check boxes.
When you select or clear a component at the folder level, all subcomponents are selected or cleared accordingly.
If any components are installed on your system, the corresponding check boxes appear dimmed.
This screen also displays the description and the approximate installed size of the selected component.
Note:When you select components, the installation program checks for dependencies between the components and automatically modifies the list of selected components to ensure that dependencies for selected components are also selected.
For details about the components available for installation on your system, see Installable Product Components.
This screen displays a list of JDKs. This list differs depending on the specific installer you are using. For example,
.jar installers do not include SDKs. If you are upgrading from a previous version, the list contains JDKs that are available for (and common across) previous installations of all the selected WebLogic Server components.
Select the JDK or JDKs that you want to install with the product.
You can also browse for and select a local JDK (at least 1.6.0_29) installed on your machine.
This screen also displays the approximate installed size of the highlighted JDK, the total installed size of all the selected JDKs, and the total installed size of all the components.
Note:Sun has addressed multiple Java security vulnerabilities affecting the following Sun Java Runtime Environments.
JDK and JRE 6 Update 10 and earlier
JDK and JRE 5.0 Update 16 and earlier
If you have already installed any of the above versions of JDK, you must upgrade it to the latest version of Sun Java Runtime Environment by selecting the latest JDK version in the installer.
You can accept the default product directories or specify new directories for each product you are installing. The product directories that are listed on this screen depend on the products you selected for installation. You may have to specify up to three installation directories, one each for Oracle WebLogic Server and Oracle Coherence.
If you choose to create a directory, the installation program automatically creates one for you.
If you go back to the Choose Middleware Home Directory screen to change the Middleware home directory, the following changes occur based on the type of changes you make to the home directory:
If you accept the default product installation directory in the Choose Product Installation Directory screen, then the old installation directory is retained in the Choose Middleware Home Directory screen.
For example, the default installation directory for Oracle WebLogic Server is
If you enter a new product installation directory in the Choose Product Installation Directory screen, the directory name is modified to this new name in the Choose Middleware Home Directory screen.
If you specify the installation directory in the Choose Product Installation Directory screen, and if the directory you specify is outside of the existing Middleware home, the existing installation directory is retained.
For more information, see Choosing Product Installation Directories.
If you are adding components to an existing product installation, confirm the product installation directory. These are the directories in which you previously installed WebLogic Server or Oracle Coherence.
The selected components are installed in the product installation directory you specified during the initial installation.
Choose whether you want to install the Windows services indicated, specifically the Oracle WebLogic Server Node Manager service. Node Manager is used to monitor, start, and stop server instances in a WebLogic domain.
If you select Yes, enter the Node Manager Listen Port in the appropriate field. The default is
Note:If the Listen Port number you specify is being used by a running application, the installation program prompts you to enter a different Node Manager Listen Port value.
Select from the following options:
All Users Start menu folder
Select this option to provide all users registered on the machine with access to the installed software. However, only users with administrator privileges can create shortcuts in the All Users folder. Therefore, if a user without administrator privileges uses the Configuration Wizard to create WebLogic domains, Start menu shortcuts to the domains are not created. In this case, users can manually create shortcuts in their local Start menu folders, if desired. Press
ALT+A on the keyboard to select the All Users Start Menu.
Local User's Start menu folder
Selecting this option ensures that other users registered on this machine do not have access to the Start menu entries for this installation. Press
ALT+L on the keyboard to select the Local User's start menu.
This screen displays a list of product components and JDKs to be installed. It also displays the description and the approximate installed size of each product component, JDKs, and the total size of all the selected items.
This screen shows the progress of the installation. When the progress bar reaches 100%, the installation is complete.
In this screen you see a dialog box with the message "Congratulations! Installation is Complete."
If you want to run the QuickStart application, leave the Run QuickStart check box selected. QuickStart is designed to assist first-time users in evaluating, learning, and using the software. It provides quick access to the sample domains, information for upgrading your applications, and the online documentation.
Clear the Run QuickStart check box if you do not want to launch QuickStart.
