Post-Installation Information

This section covers the following topics:


Using QuickStart

When the product installation is completed using graphical-mode installation, the QuickStart application is launched automatically, by default. If you do not want to run QuickStart at the completion of the installation process, you can clear the Run QuickStart check box in the Install Complete window. QuickStart is not invoked for console-mode or silent-mode installations.

QuickStart is designed to help first-time users evaluate, learn, and use Products software. For example, QuickStart application for WebLogic Server provides quick access to the following:

After installation, you can launch QuickStart as follows:


Determining Which JDK Version You Are Using

You can determine which version of the JDK you are using by issuing a command, as follows:

  1. Open a command prompt window and go to the appropriate directory:
  2. BEA_HOME\WL_HOME\server\bin (Windows)

    BEA_HOME/WL_HOME/server/bin (UNIX)

    In both pathnames, BEA_HOME represents the directory in which you have installed your software and WL_HOME represents the wlserver_<version>.

  3. Make sure that your environment is set up properly by entering the following command at the prompt:
  4. setWLSenv.cmd (Windows) (UNIX)

  5. Enter the following command at the prompt:
  6. java -version

    If you are using JRockit, BEA JRockit(R) is displayed in the output.


Understanding the Windows Shortcuts

When you install your software on a Windows system, the installation program automatically creates shortcut entries on the Start Menu.

Note: If the user performing the installation has Administrator privileges, the shortcut entries can be created in the All Users Start menu folder or in the user’s local Start menu folder. For more information, see Administrator Privileges.

The options in the Start > Programs > Oracle WebLogic menu vary, according to the components you choose to install.
