In first post we have covered installation of Database and creating Unifier’s database user. In this post we will install JDK and Weblogic.
Before proceeding you should first find out the supported JDK and Weblogic version for Unifier 15.2.
This information can be found in Tested Configuration document released by Oracle for every version of Unifier, for 15.2 it is available at below link http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E59283_01/Unifier/15_2/unifier_15_2_tested_config.xlsx
So from document I found that supported version of JDK and Weblogic for Windows server 2012 R2 64 bit is 1.8.0_60 and 188.8.131.52.0 respectively. If you already have Weblogic 10.3.6 then upgrade it to 10.3.6.0.11. The supported JDK for Weblogic 10.3.6.0.11 is 1.7.0_85.
To download the supported Java version you have to go to Java Archive website and download the Java SE Development Kit according to your server. Below is Java Archive link
Make sure to install Java in a folder which don’t contain spaces in its name like C://Program Files/Java/JDK instead install it in folder like C://Java.
After installing JDK set JAVA_HOME environment variable.
Now download the Generic installer file of Weblogic from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/Weblogic/downloads/wls-main-097127.html
Run wls1211_generic.jar, by running following command in command prompt.
Select ‘Create a new Middleware Home’. Provide path for installation.
Uncheck ‘receive security update..’.
Click on Yes.
Click on Yes.
Select check box and click on Continue.
Select ‘Typical’ as installation type. Click Next.
Select the JDK installation directory and click Next.
Select directory for Weblogic home. Click Next.
Select ‘All user’ option. It will help in case your team member don’t know the Weblogic installation directory and someone asked him/her to restart Weblogic server, he/she can easily find options for same in their start menu.
Review the installation summary and click on Next.
Installation will start.
Select ‘Run quick start’ and click on Done.
You will get Quick Start window, here we will create an Admin server to host our Unifier application. Click on ‘Getting Started with ..’
Select ‘Create a new Weblogic domain’. Click Next.
Select the first option and click Next.
Provide a domain name and select a domain location.
This step will create Weblogic admin console user.
Provide password for Weblogic user and click Next. Note down the password it will be used to start Weblogic and access Weblogic admin console.
Select the Mode as Production mode and JDK installation path.
Select Administration Server. In case you want to deploy Unifier application on a managed server instead of Admin server check second option else leave it as it is.
Provide a listen port for Admin server. Make sure this port is not already in use by other application hosted on same server.
Review configuration summary and click on Create.
Select ‘Start Admin Server’ and click on Done.
A command prompt will appear, provide Weblogic admin user name and password as set earlier.
This will start Weblogic admin server and can be accessed using url http://localhost:7003/console from local browser.
Close Quick Start window.
This completes our Weblogic installation, in next post we will create Unifier EAR file and deploy that on our Weblogic admin server.
