Custom WLST commands for a given Oracle Fusion Middleware component are available for use only if the component is installed in the ORACLE_HOME directory.

This document is written for WebLogic Server administrators and operators who deploy Java EE applications using the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) from Sun Microsystems. It is assumed that readers are familiar with Web technologies and the operating system and platform where WebLogic Server is installed.

New and Changed WLST Features in This Release

The following new WLST features are available in this release:

  • Support for using WLST with some Oracle Fusion Middleware products. Custom WLST commands for these products are described in this manual. These commands are WLST versions of many of the Oracle ASCTL commands for Fusion Middleware products.

  • A new domainCustom() command that lets you access and perform operations on custom MBeans that have been registered in the Domain Runtime MBean Server. See "Accessing Custom MBeans on the Domain Runtime Server" in Oracle WebLogic Scripting Tool, and domainCustom in this manual.

  • Two new WLST commands, addHelpCommandGroup() and addHelpCommand(), which lets you add command group help and command help for custom WLST commands to the WLST integrated help. See addHelpCommandGroup and addHelpCommand.

  • As of this release, WLST is based on Jython 2.2.1.
