Supported Configurations


Switching JDKs

The following instructions are provided for users who have already installed either WebLogic Portal 10.2, Workshop for WebLogic 10.2, or WebLogic Server 10.0 and want to switch from Sun Java 2 to BEA JRockit, or vice-versa:

  1. Examine the WebLogic Server start script. This script is located in the bin subdirectory of your domain’s root directory and, by default, is named startWebLogic.cmd (Windows) or (UNIX).
  2. Locate the settings for the following two variables:
  3. If these variables are set within the script, change them as appropriate.
  4. The following set JAVA_VENDOR and set JAVA_HOME commands specify the BEA JRockit J2SE 5.0 JDK, where c:\bea is the BEA home directory:

    set JAVA_HOME=c:\bea\jrockit_150_11

    For Sun, the equivalent commands are as follows:

    set JAVA_VENDOR=Sun
    set JAVA_HOME=c:\bea\jdk150_11

  5. If the JAVA_VENDOR variable is not set in the WebLogic Server start script, then you need to set the default JDK in the setDomainEnv.cmd (Windows) or (UNIX) script as described in this step. The setDomainEnv script is also located in the bin subdirectory of the domain’s root directory.
  6. The following two code snippets show the switching of the default JDK from Sun Java 2 JDK 5.0 to BEA JRockit J2SE 5.0 (R27.0) JDK in commEnv.cmd on Windows. In these snippets, the BEA home directory is c:\bea.

    The first code snippet shows the initial settings that establish Sun Java 2 JDK 5.0 as the default:

    if "%JAVA_VENDOR%"=="BEA" (
    set JAVA_HOME=C:\bea\jrockit_150_11
    ) else (
    if "%JAVA_VENDOR%"=="Sun" (
    set JAVA_HOME=C:\bea\jdk150_11
    ) else (
    set JAVA_VENDOR=Sun
    set JAVA_HOME=C:\bea\jdk150_11 )

    The second code snippet shows the changes, in bold, made to switch to JRockit as the default:

    if "%JAVA_VENDOR%"=="BEA" (
    set JAVA_HOME=C:\bea\jrockit_150_11
    ) else (
    if "%JAVA_VENDOR%"=="Sun" (
    set JAVA_HOME=C:\bea\jdk150_11
    ) else (
    set JAVA_HOME=C:\bea\jrockit_150_11
