Introduction and Roadmap

This document describes WebLogic Server® domains and how they are configured. A domain is the basic administration unit for WebLogic Server. A domain consists of one or more WebLogic Server instances (and their associated resources) that you manage with a single Administration Server.

The following sections describe the contents and organization of this guide—Understanding Domain Configuration.


Document Scope and Audience

This document is written mainly for J2EE system architects, application developers, and system administrators who are developing or deploying Web-based applications on one or more WebLogic server domains.

The topics in this document are relevant during the design and development phases of a software project. This document does not address production phase administration, monitoring, or performance tuning topics. For links to WebLogic Server documentation and resources for these topics, see Related Documentation.

It is assumed that the reader is familiar with J2EE, basic concepts of XML, and general networking and application management concepts.
