Tool Setup Instructions

Oracle WebLogic Platform, Version 10.3

If the course you are setting up requires WebLogic 10.3, follow these instructions to set it up on the student and instructor machines. If you have questions, please contact your courseware vendor.

WebLogic is of course a commercial tool, and it is assumed that students and/or training companies using Capstone courseware for WebLogic either have appropriate licenses to use WebLogic or are legally using evaluation software in the classroom. Evaluation copies are available from Oracle through the following address; please carefully read and understand Oracle's license agreement before download and install.


From the table of products and versions, choose the Oracle WebLogic Server 10.3 - Package Installer, Windows, x86. Download and run this file. A default installation is fine, but we recommend the path c:\BEA for the BEA home and c:\BEA\WebLogic for the WebLogic installation root path.

Two simple tests of your installation are as follows:

Run the following command and you should see output roughly as shown (some path information will vary by machine):

Your environment has been set.

Run the startWebLogic command from the directory c:\BEA\WebLogic\samples\domains\wl_server\bin. You should see a long train of console output as the WebLogic server starts up, starting with:

JAVA Memory arguments: -Xms256m -Xmx512m
WLS Start Mode=Development

... and ending with:

<date/time> <Notice> <WebLogicServer> <BEA-000365> <Server state changed to RUNNING>
<date/time> <Notice> <WebLogicServer> <BEA-000360> <Server started in RUNNING mode>

Then a web browser will open, showing the Getting Started page for the WebLogic server. Click the button labeled Shut Down. Provide the string "weblogic" as both the username and password in the login dialog box that pops up. Then the web browser will show "Server is shut down successfully!" Close the web browser. In the original command console you'll see:

Stopping PointBase server...
PointBase server stopped.
