Install applications and modules

Installing an application or module refers to making its physical file or directory known to WebLogic Server. After you have installed the application or module, you can start it so that users can begin using it. See Start applications and modules. For more information on supported deployment units, see Understanding WebLogic Server Deploymentin Deploying Applications to WebLogic Server.

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. In the left pane of the Console, select Deployments.
  3. Click Install.
  4. In the Install Application Assistant, locate the application or module you want to install. If you specify an exploded directory, WebLogic Server installs all components it finds in and below the specified directory.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Specify whether you want to target the installation as an application or a shared library.
  7. In Scope, select whether you want to install the application globally, to a resource group template, or to a resource group at the domain or partition level.
  8. Click Next.
  9. Select the servers or clusters to which you want to deploy the application or module.

    Note: If you have not created additional Managed Servers or clusters, you will not see this assistant page.

  10. Click Next.
  11. Optionally update additional deployment settings. These settings include:
    • The deployed name of the application or module.
    • The security model that is applied to the application or module.
    • How the source files are made available to all targeted Managed Servers and clusters.
    • How the deployment plan source files are made available to all targeted Managed Servers and clusters.

    Typically, the default values are adequate.

  12. Click Next.
  13. Review the configuration settings you have specified, and click Finish to complete the installation.

    Note: If you install an application that follows the below directory structure and there is no deployment plan in the /plan directory, WebLogic server automatically creates a deployment plan for you.

    • app-root
    • /app
    • /plan
  14. If you choose to immediately go to the deployment's configuration screen, select the pages to set additional configuration settings for the application or module. If you choose to change this information later, you return to the Deployments table, which now includes your newly installed application or module.
  15. To activate these changes, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Activate Changes.
    Not all changes take effect immediately—some require a restart (see Use the Change Center).
