This document provides instructions for installing and running the Oracle installer for Oracle WebLogic 12.1.3.

Additional information regarding Oracle WebLogic 12.1.3 is available at this link:

3.2 Downloading Oracle WebLogic 12.1.3 from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud

You can download Oracle WebLogic 12.1.3 from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud located at this link:

3.3 Before You Begin

3.3.1 64-Bit Support - General

Per the Minimum Technical Requirements for JD Edwards, Oracle WebLogic 12.1.3 is supported with 64-bit JDKs on 64-bit platforms. You should always review the Certifications for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne for the supported platforms as described in Chapter 1, 'Accessing Certifications (formerly Minimum Technical Requirements)'.

3.3.2 64-Bit - JDK

The installation of Oracle WebLogic 12.1.3 for 64-bit platforms does not include the 64-bit JDK. Therefore, prior to installing Oracle WebLogic 12.1.3 for 64-bit platforms, you must manually download and install the requisite JDK. For the latest information about the specifically supported JDK, refer to the Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c Infrastructure product on Oracle Certification.

Additionally, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne requires that a 64-bit JDK be installed so that the bin directory of the JDK is located at the beginning of the PATH variable definition.

3.3.3 System Requirements

Refer to Chapter 1, 'Accessing Certifications (formerly Minimum Technical Requirements)' to locate for specific system requirements including minimum processor and memory required for Oracle WebLogic 12.1.3 on JD Edwards EnterpriseOne HTML Servers.

3.3.4 Installation Considerations

Oracle recommends the following:

  • Do not exceed a maximum of 12 characters when naming your home directory. If the name of this directory has more than 12 characters and if there are spaces in the directory name, the CLASSPATH may not be resolved properly.

  • You can install only one instance of each version of an Oracle WebLogic product in a single home directory

  • If you launch the installation from the command line or from a script, you can specify the -log option to generate a verbose installation log. The installation log stores messages (informational, warning, error, and fatal) about events that occur during the installation process.

3.4 Installing and Verifying the JDK Version

Oracle WebLogic 12.1.3 supports Oracle JDK 1.7.0_55+, HP JDK 7.0.03, or IBM JDK 1.7.0 SR6+ version. Oracle JDK can be downloaded from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud at this link:

Note:

A plus sign '+' after the fourth digit in the version number indicates that this and its subsequent versions are supported.

Caution:

For Oracle WebLogic 12.1.3, no version of 1.6.x from any vendor is supported.

3.5 Installing Oracle WebLogic 12.1.3

To use the Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) to install Oracle WebLogic 12.1.3:

  1. Locate the Oracle WebLogic 12.1.3 installer from the image that you downloaded from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud.

    The file name of the installer is:

    fmw_12.1.3.0.0_wls.jar

  2. On UNIX platforms, the command syntax to run the installer is platform dependent.

    For Linux and AIX (non-Hybrid JDK)

    > java -jar fmw_12.1.3.0.0_wls.jar

    For Solaris and HP-UX (Hybrid JDK)

    > java -d64 -jar fmw_12.1.3.0.0_wls.jar

    Upon execution, the installer starts preparing the OUI install program and displays the Welcome screen.


  3. On Welcome, click the Next button.


  4. On Installation Location, provide a location for the home for this installation of WebLogic 12.1.3.

    The location you enter here will be your MW_HOME value.
  5. Click the Next button.


  6. On Installation Type, select the type of installation you wish to perform.

    In this guide, it is assumed you select the Complete Installation type, which installs the Oracle WebLogic and the Oracle Coherence Server. However you can choose to select WebLogic Server Installation option.

    Note:

    The Complete Installation selection automatically includes the Oracle Coherence server. This is a stand-alone cache server that enables dedicated JVM instances responsible for maintaining and managing cached data. As of the initial publication of this guide, the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne HTML Server has not been certified with the Oracle Coherence Server.
  7. Click the Next button.


  8. The installer runs Prerequisite Checks and shows progress.

  9. If the checks are successful, click the Next button.


  10. On Specify Security Updates, Oracle strongly recommends you complete the Email address and/or the My Oracle Support Password fields to register your installation of Oracle WebLogic 12.1.3. This registration will enable you to be informed of security issues.

This post will walk you through the installation of Oracle Weblogic Application Server 12c on a Mac OSX machine.
First of all, visit the official Oracle Weblogic download page and download the latest generic version. You would need to create a Oracle ID first. Accept the agreement and start the download. In this example, we would download the Weblogic v12.1.2. The filename in this case is wls_121200.jar
Also, note that the generic version does not come with JVM / JDK for its installation. So make sure, you have Java installed on your machine.
Once downloaded, note the following steps :
Run the following command to initiate the installer
java -d64 -Dspace.detection=true -Xmx1024m -jar wls_121200.jar
This will start the extraction of the wls_121200.jar and also perform some routine system pre-requisite checks. Note the arguments that we passed. The space.detection parameter is set to true to detect available space. Also, the max memory usage size by JVM is set to 1024m i.e 1 GB.

In the next screen, you'll see the option to modify or change location of Oracle_Home directory. Leave it to default option if you don't want to modify the location. Click Next.
In the following screen, you have to choose the type of installation. Choose the default option. However, choosing the Complete Installation will also install OPatch and some examples like medrec.
In next screen, you can see the overall Installation summary. Save the response file if you intend to perform silent installations in the future. Check this link for reference. Click Next.
This will start the installation process. This will take a few minutes. You can observe the overall progress here.


Once the installation is completed, you'll see the following screen. Click Finish. This will initiate the next step - Configuration Wizard.
Below is the welcome screen of the Wizard.
Following is the first screen of the Configuration Wizard. Here you can set the Weblogic Administrator account and define the Parent domain location. Click Next.
In next screen, you'll see the progress of the domain creation.
Now, in the next and final screen, you'll see the Configuration success scene. Here you can check the option to start domain. Leave it unchecked, so that we can start it manually. Click Finish. That's pretty much a plain vanilla installation of Oracle Weblogic server 12c on Mac OSX machines.
