Here is a Simple Demonstration of Downloading the Oracle WebLogic 10.3.3 Development Edition (Zip Installer for Many Platforms) and to Create a Simple domain. This Installer has an Speciality that We need not to Install it. Because it is the Zip Version of it Just for Testing and Development purpose. Sothat we can test All the new Features added in this release.

You can download it from: http://download.oracle.com/otn/nt/middleware/11g/wls1033_dev.zip

For More information about this Installer please refer to: http://blogs.oracle.com/WebLogicServer/2010/05/the_new_wls_zip_distribution_w.html

Step1). DownLoad the Zip Installer of Oracle WebLogic 10.3.3 from the link: http://download.oracle.com/otn/nt/middleware/11g/wls1033_dev.zip (Size is around 430 MB) It doesnt contain any IDE or JDK.so U need to have a JDK 1.6 already in your Machine. (U can use the JAVA_HOME) of your WebLogic10.3.0 Installer.

Step2). Extract the Zip File inside some Location like “C:Bea1033_Dev”

NOTE: The Below Image shows that “jrockit_160_05” is present inside the Installer…Please dont be confused with that..I separately Created the “jrockit_160_05” directory these…This Zip version of WLS10.3.3 doesnt contain any JDK inside it. Please get ur own JDK and better paste it inside the <MW_HOME>

Step3). Open a Command Window and run the following Commands: (Note JDK needs to be present separately in your Box)

set MW_HOME=C:Bea1033_Dev
set JAVA_HOME=C:Bea1033_Devjrockit_160_05

(UNIX Based Boxes)
export MW_HOME=/home/Bea1033_Dev
export JAVA_HOME=/home/Bea1033_Dev/jrockit_160_05

Step4). In the Same Command Shell/Prompt please move inside the $MW_HOME directory and then run the …to create “.product.properties” inside “<MW_HOME>wlserver” location

“configure.cmd” (Windows)
“configure.sh” (Unix based OS)

Step5). Now your Oracle WebLogic 10.3.3 is ready and confgured in your Box.

Creating Domain in WebLogic 10.3.3

Step6). To Create a Domain …Move inside <MW_HOME>wlservercommonbin and then run “config.cmd” or “config.sh” script.

Click on Next—>Next—>Next

Step7). Start the Domain and Access the Administration Console.

Special instruction for “APPLE JDK”

Point-1). Apple Jdk doesnt have “rt.jar” and “tools.jar”

Point-2). Make sure that in your server StartScripts , you set “JAVA_VENDOR=Apple” prior to invoking the startup scripts

Point-3). Always follow the recommended Heap Settings like below :

-Xmx1024m  -Xms1024m  -XX:MaxPermSize=256m
