This chapter describes WebLogic SCA Runtime, which is installed by default with WebLogic Server but must be deployed as a shared Web application library.
WebLogic SCA applications are expected to bundle
spring.jar, so the Spring Framework does not have to be installed separately during WebLogic SCA Runtime deployment.
In WebLogic Server, you can deploy the library using the Administration Console or the command-line weblogic.Deployer tool. For information about weblogic.Deployer, see "Deploying Applications and Modules with weblogic.Deployer" in Deploying Applications to Oracle WebLogic Server.
To deploy the library using the Administration Console:
If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit.
In the left pane of the Administration Console, click Deployments.
In the right pane, click Install.
In the Install Application Assistant, navigate to the library file:
Select the file and click Next.
Select Install this deployment as a library.
Select the servers and/or clusters to which you want to deploy the application or module.
Optionally update additional deployment settings.
Review the configuration settings you have specified, and click Finish to complete the installation.
To activate these changes, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Activate Changes.
For more information about deployment in WebLogic Server, see Deploying Applications to Oracle WebLogic Server.
The WebLogic SCA Runtime library can be deployed automatically by Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse and by Oracle JDeveloper. For more on WebLogic SCA support in these tools, see Chapter 3, "Tools Support."
