3.1.3 Start/Stop Commands for WebLogic Server

This section lists commands that are used in this guide for managing WebLogic Server.

Note:

We assume that you are using a UNIX-based system. For Windows-based installations, the commands end in either .cmd or .bat extensions.

  • Start the admin server:

    <domain_home>/bin/startWebLogic.sh
    
  • Stop the admin server:

    <domain_home>/bin/stopWebLogic.sh
    
  • Start the node manager:

    <weblogic_home>/wlserver_10.3/server/bin/startNodeManager.sh
    
  • Start a managed server:

    <domain_home>/bin/startManagedWebLogic.sh <managed_server_name> http://<admin_server_host>:<admin_port>
    
  • Stop a managed server:

    <domain_home>/bin/stopManagedWebLogic.sh <managed_server_name> http://<admin_server_host>:<admin_port>
    

3.2 Step 1: Configuring WebLogic Application Server

To configure the WebLogic application server, you will complete the following steps:

3.2.1 Creating a WebLogic Domain

In the steps below, you will be creating a WebLogic domain and configuring an admin server. In a multi-server non-clustered environment, you may create a single domain and administer all local and remote servers from a single administration console, or create a domain for each standalone server. In a clustered environment, create the domain on the primary cluster member.

To create and configure a WebLogic Server domain

  1. Change directories to <weblogic_home>/wlserver_10.3/common/bin and run config.sh (.cmd for Windows).

  2. Create a domain:

    1. In the Welcome screen, select Create a new WebLogic domain and click Next.

    2. In the Select Domain Source screen, select Generate a domain configured automatically to support Basic WebLogic Server Domain (Figure 3-1) and click Next.

      Figure 3-1 Domain Source Selection

      Description of Figure 3-1 follows
      Description of "Figure 3-1 Domain Source Selection"

    3. In the Specify Domain Name and Location screen, enter the name and path of the WebLogic domain (Figure 3-2). Click Next.

      Figure 3-2 Domain Name and Location

      Description of Figure 3-2 follows
      Description of "Figure 3-2 Domain Name and Location"

      Note:

      The path to the domain will be referred to throughout this guide as <domain_home>.

    4. In the Configure Administrator Username and Password screen, enter a user name and password for the WebLogic domain (Figure 3-3). Click Next.

      Figure 3-3 Administrator User Name and Password

      Description of Figure 3-3 follows
      Description of "Figure 3-3 Administrator User Name and Password"

    5. In the Configure Server Start Mode and JDK screen, select Development Mode and the preferred SDK (in the WebLogic Supplied JDKs list box). See Figure 3-4. For production environments, the domain will be changed to Production Mode later in this guide in Section 6.7, "Switching WebLogic Application Server to Production Mode (Delivery Systems Only)." Click Next.

      Note:

      If a JRockit JDK is used, then you must create an optimization file containing the following:

      { match: [ "net/sf/ehcache/Cache.get*","com/fatwire/cache/ehcache/EhCacheObjectCache._get*","com/fatwire/cache/ehcache/EhCacheObjectCache.get*","net/sf/ehcache/Cache.isExpired*" ], hotspot : { enable : false },}
      

      This file needs to be copied to each physical server where a WebLogic server is run.

    4. Click Save.

3.2.2.5 Setting Java Options

This section explains how to set memory arguments as well as add Java options required by WebCenter Sites.

Note:

If a JRockit JDK will be used, you must create an optimization file containing the following:

{ match: [ "net/sf/ehcache/Cache.get*",
"com/fatwire/cache/ehcache/EhCacheObjectCache._
get*","com/fatwire/cache/ehcache/EhCacheObjectCache.get*",
"net/sf/ehcache/Cache.isExpired*" ], 
hotspot : { enable : false },}

  1. Stop the administration server.

  2. Set Memory Arguments

    1. Open <domain_home>/bin/setDomainEnv.sh in a text editor and search for the following:

      WLS_MEM_ARGS
      
    2. Set the value for WLS_MEM_ARGS_64BIT or WLS_MEM_ARGS_32BIT for both Sun and JRockit. The recommended value is -Xms512m -Xmx2048m.

    3. Save the changes.

  3. Add the required Java options to WebCenter Sites:

    1. Open <domain_home>/bin/startWebLogic.sh in a text editor and search for the following line (located below the Start Derby section):

      JAVA_OPTIONS="${SAVE_JAVA_OPTIONS}" 
      
    2. Modify the line by adding the following Java options:

      • -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8

        This option specifies UTF-8 file encoding.

      • -Dnet.sf.ehcache.enableShutdownHook=true

        This option enables the Ehcache shutdown hook.

      • -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true

        This option specifies the use of IPv4 addresses.

      • -Duser.timezone=UTC

        This option is used to set the time zone for the JVM. It is recommended to set the value to UTC across all WebCenter Sites installations. However, you can set any preferable time zone as long as this value is the same for all WebCenter Sites installations.

      • -Djava.io.tmpdir=<path_to_sites_tmpdir>

        This option specifies which temporary directory the JVM uses. The value should be the path to the directory created in Section 2.1, "Before You Begin."

      • (JRockit JDK only) -XX:+UnlockDiagnosticVMOptions -XX:OptFile=<path_to_optimization_file>

        These options are required when using a JRockit JDK. They signal the JVM to use the optimization file that was created in Section 3.2.1, "Creating a WebLogic Domain."

        Note:

        If Shift-JIS characters will be used, add the following option: -Dcs.useJavaURLDecoder=false

      After making the above changes, the modified line should look as follows:

      JAVA_OPTIONS="-Dfile.encoding=UTF-8  -Dnet.sf.ehcache.enableShutdownHook=true -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true -Duser.timezone=UTC -Djava.io.tmpdir=<path_to_sites_tmpdir> ${SAVE_JAVA_OPTIONS}"
      
    3. Save the changes.

3.2.2.6 Setting the Classpath

This section explains how to add paths required for WebCenter Sites to the application server classpath. To ensure a class is loaded first, it is added to the PRE_CLASSPATH variable.

  1. Add the required paths to CLASSPATH for WebCenter Sites.

    1. Open <domain_home>/bin/startWebLogic.sh in a text editor and search for the following line (located below the Start Derby section):

      CLASSPATH="${SAVE_CLASSPATH}" 
      
    2. Modify the line by adding the following path:

      <sites_install_dir>/bin
      

      This path contains the required WebCenter Sites and CAS configuration files. Without this path, the CAS web application will not start and the System Tools node in the Admin tab of the WebCenter Sites Admin interface will have reduced functionality.

    3. Save the changes.

  2. Add the required paths to PRE_CLASSPATH for WebCenter Sites.

    1. Open wlserver_10.3/server/bin/startNodeManager.sh in a text editor and search for the following line:

      # Get PRE and POST environment
      if [ ! -z "${PRE_CLASSPATH}" ]; then
        CLASSPATH="PRE_CLASSPATH="<sites_deploy_home>/WEB-INF/lib/commons-lang-2.4.jar:${PRE_CLASSPATH}"${CLASSPATHSEP}${CLASSPATH}"
      
    2. Add the following line after it:

      PRE_CLASSPATH="<sites_deploy_home>/WEB-INF/lib/commons-lang-2.4.jar:${PRE_CLASSPATH}"
      

      This JAR is located in the lib directory of the exploded WebCenter Sites web application. For the WebCenter Sites Contributor interface to load properly, this JAR must be loaded to the classpath prior to the other versions of its classes.

      Note:

      This changes affects all domains.

    3. Save the changes.

3.2.2.7 Transfer Remote Managed Servers

This section explains how to transfer any remote managed servers that were created using the administration console, to the physical servers they will be running on.

  1. Make sure that all servers in the domain are shutdown.

  2. Create a template from the domain that was created on the primary server. Run the following command from <weblogic_home>/wlserver10.3/common/bin:

    ./pack.sh -managed=true -domain=<domain_home> -template=<template_creation_location>/<template_name>.jar -template_name="<template_name>"
    For example:
    ./pack.sh -managed=true -domain=/opt/Oracle/Middleware/user_projects/domains/SitesDomain -template=/opt/Downloads/SitesDomainTemplate.jar -template_name="SitesDomainTemplate"
    
  3. For each remote server, complete the following steps:

    1. Copy the newly created template to the remote server.

      Note:

      The remote server should already have WebLogic server installed.

    2. Unpack the managed server and required domain files from the copied template.

      The domain will be created in the same location as the primary server.

    3. Run the following command from <weblogic_home>/wlserver10.3/common/bin directory:

      ./unpack.sh -domain=<domain_home> -template=<template_location>/<template name>.jar
      

      For example:

      ./unpack.sh -domain=/opt/Oracle/Middleware/user_projects/domains/SitesDomain -template=/opt/Downloads/SitesDomain.jar
      
    4. Copy the <domain_home>/bin/startWebLogic.sh and <domain_home>/bin/setDomainEnv.sh files from the primary server to the <domain_home>/bin directory of the remote server. The modified files are not included in the template.

    5. Modify the files and make any changes to reflect differences in the paths or options added in Section 3.2.2.5, "Setting Java Options" and Section 3.2.2.6, "Setting the Classpath."

    6. Save the changes.

3.3 Step 2: Integrating Oracle WebLogic Server with a Supported Web Server

    <IfModule mod_weblogic.c>
      WebLogicHost {weblogic_host}
      WebLogicPort {weblogic_port}
    </IfModule>
    
    <Location /{sites_context_root}>
      SetHandler weblogic-handler
    </Location>
    
    <Location /cas>
      SetHandler weblogic-handler
    </Location>
    

    Multi Server Environment

    LoadModule weblogic_module modules/mod_wl_22.so

    <IfModule mod_weblogic.c>
      WebLogicCluster {weblogic_host1}:{weblogic_port1},{weblogic_host2}:{weblogic_port2}
    </IfModule>
    
    <Location /{sites_context_root}>
      SetHandler weblogic-handler
    </Location>
    
    <Location /cas>
      SetHandler weblogic-handler
    </Location>
    
  4. Save the changes.

  5. Verify the syntax of the httpd.conf file with the following command:

    <apache_home>/bin/apachectl -t
    
  6. Restart the web server.

3.3.3 Configuring the IIS Web Server

      WebLogicPort=<port> 
      ConnectRetrySecs=5
      WLForwardPath=/<cs_context_root>,/<cas_context_root>
      
    • For a clustered environment, use the following example:

      WebLogicCluster=<member1_hostname>:<member1_port>,
      <member2_hostname>:<member2_port>,<membern_hostname>:
      <membern_port>
      ConnectRetrySecs=5
