ADF Deployment Guide: How to Install & Configure WebLogic Server to Run ADF 11g Applications in Production
By Dana Singleterry-Oracle on Apr 05, 2011
There have been a number of blogs over the last few months, years, that have demonstrated configuring a Manged Server to run ADF Applications. Some of these have gone a little further and illustrated how to configure the Web Tier Utilities and set various parameters within WebCache to further tune the performance of your ADF Applications. This blog entry, directing you to this new How-To, serves as an amalgam of the following contributors blogs on this subject plus some of my own: Duncan Mills, Lynn Munsinger, Shay Shmeltzer, Andrejus Baranovskis, Chris Muir.
To summarize this How-To available on Oracle's Technology Network here: This How-To Document details a step-by-step process for creating a deployment environment for Application Development Framework (ADF) applications. Included are steps to follow in creating a managed server, applying the Java Runtime Files (JRF) for the ADF, creation of the Web Tier (HTTP Server and WebCache) and then tuning elements for your ADF application that will provide for better performance. Note that this How-To assumes a Windows Server so unless otherwise stated, starting and stopping of WebLogic takes place from the Windows Start Menu although this can also occur from the command prompt by invoking the startWebLogic.cmd. The details here can also be used on a Linux Server with some minor variations.
Please note that there are alternatives to this How-To and this serves as one method.
