Steps to DeInstall Oracle Weblogic Server 12.1.2.0.0...

How to DeInstall Oracle Weblogic Server 12.1.2.0.0 ? 

- Oracle Weblogic Server 12.1.2 can be Deinstalled in two ways :

* GUI mode

* Silent Mode 

- For GUI mode go to " ORACLE_HOME\oui\bin " directory and run deinstall script.

- For Silent mode use the following command :

Go to " ORACLE_HOME\oui\bin " directory

./deinstall.sh -silent -response <deinstaller_response_file> 

- The deinstaller does not remove the JDK or any user-created data such as WebLogic domains or custom application data. Only the components that were installed by the installation program are removed by the deinstaller. 

- Make sure you have stopped all the servers / processes running before starting the DeInstaller.

Steps to create a new domain on Weblogic Server 12.1.2.0.0...

Weblogic Server Domain Configuration Wizard - Points to remember :

- Adding " -Djava.security.egd=file:/dev/urandom " in Unix/Linux decreases the amount of time it takes for the Configuration Wizard to create or update a domain.

- Quick Start Configuration Wizard can be used only to configure the various sample domains, such as MedRec and the Examples Server, in your WebLogic Server installation.

- You can start Quick Start Configuration Wizard in two ways :

1. Select the Automatically Launch Quick Start Configuration Wizard option on the Installation Complete screen of the WebLogic Server installer.

2. Run the config.cmd / config.sh script located in ORACLE_HOME/oracle_common/common/bin as follows : " config.cmd -target=config-oneclick " in windows and " config.sh -target=config-oneclick " in Linux.

- Prior to manually running the Configuration Wizard in Quick Start mode, you must set the CONFIG_JVM_ARGS environment variable to specify the full path and JAR file name for each template that you want to use for the domain.

- To set CONFIG_JVM_ARGS on a Windows system:

set CONFIG_JVM_ARGS="-DuserTemplates=C:/Oracle/Middleware/wlserver/common/
templates/wls/wls.jar,C:/Oracle/Middleware/wlserver/common/templates/
wls/wls_webservice_jaxws.jar"

- To set CONFIG_JVM_ARGS on a UNIX:

export CONFIG_JVM_ARGS="-DuserTemplates=/Oracle/Middleware/wlserver/common/
templates/wls/wls.jar,/Oracle/Middleware/wlserver/common/templates/
wls/wls_webservice_jaxws.jar"

- Domain can be created using GUI mode or using WLST.

- There is silent mode installation only for WLS 12.1.2 installation and not for WLS 12.1.2 domain creation.

- Nodemanager can now be configured in domain configuration wizard.

In this post we will see how to create a new Weblogic Server domain using DomainConfigurationWizard.

Steps to configure SAML 2.0 with Weblogic Server (using embedded LDAP as a security store - Only for Dev Environment)...

 What is SAML 2.0 ?

Security Assertion Markup Language 2.0 (SAML 2.0) is a version of the SAML standard for exchanging authentication and authorization data between security domains.


SAML 2.0 is an XML-based protocol that uses security tokens containing assertions to pass information about a principal (usually an end user) between a SAML authority, that is an identity provider, and a SAML consumer, that is a service provider

It enables cross-platform authentication between Web applications or Web services running in a WebLogic domain and Web browsers or other HTTP clients.

When users are authenticated at one site that participates in a single sign-on (SSO) configuration, they are automatically authenticated at other sites in the SSO configuration and do not need to log in separately.

One who generated the SAML token is called the Identity Provider OR Asserting Party OR Source Site.

And the one accepts the token is called the Service Provider OR Relying Party OR Destination Site.
Trust has to be established between them for SAML to work hence details of the Service Provider has to be with the Identity Provider and details of Identity Provider has to be with the Service Provider.

SAML can be classified into two types depending on the manner in which requests are obtained.

- IDP initiated ( Identity Provider Initiated )

- SP initiated ( Service Provider initiated )

In this post we will see how to configure Single sign-on (SSO) using SAML 2.0 in Weblogic Server.
