In this post i’ll be explaining weblogic installation on linux and windows OS platform. But before starting the installation let us understand different package installer in which it is available.
There three types of packages
OS-specific Package installer : These are standalone installers available in .exe or .bin format and have the JDK’s for the respective operating systems in them hence no need of having/installing JDK as pre-requisite.
Example: ./server103_linux32.bin (run with right permission).
Generic Package installer: Its a jar file which can be used for product installation, except it doesn’t have the JDK in it. We need to have the JDK already installed on the machine.
Example : wls1036_generic.jar. Run command java –jar wls1036_generic.jar ( If JAVA_HOME is not set then provide the path , execute :$(JAVA_HOME)/bin/java –jar wls1036_generic.jar )
Net installer: It offers more flexibility in downloading components. It allows you to pick and choose which feature to download and install. Check Oracle documentation for more details.
Its time to understand the three mode of weblogic installation
