ODEE Green Field (Windows) Part 2 - WebLogic

Andy Little
Technical Director

Welcome back to the next installment on how to install Oracle Documaker Enterprise Edition onto a green field environment! In my previous post, I went over some basic introductory information and we installed the Oracle database. Hopefully you've completed that step successfully, and we're ready to move on - so let's dive in! For this installment, we'll be installing WebLogic 10.3.6, which is a prerequisite for ODEE 12.3 and 12.2. Prior to
installing the WebLogic application server, verify that you have met the
software prerequisites. Review the documentation
specifically you need to make sure that you have the appropriate JDK installed.
There are advisories if you are using JDK 1.7. These instructions assume you
are using JDK 1.6, which is available here. [UPDATE: The FMW compability matrix has been updated and you should note that JDK 1.8 is not supported on WebLogic 10.3.6. Do not attempt to install and use WebLogic 10.3.6 with JDK 1.8.]

The first order of business is to unzip the installation package into a directory location. This procedure should create a single file, wls1036_generic.jar. Navigate to and execute this file
by double-clicking it. This should launch the installer. Depending on your User
Account Control rights you may need to approve running the setup application. Once the installer application opens, click Next.

Select your Middleware Home. This should be within your ORACLE_HOME. The default is probably fine. Click Next.

Uncheck the Email option.

Click Yes.

Click Next. Click Yes

Click Yes and Yes again (yes, it’s quite circular). Check that you wish to remain uninformed and click Continue.

Click Custom and Next.

Uncheck Evaluation Database and Coherence, then click Next.

Select the appropriate JDK. This should be a 64-bit JDK if you’re running a 64-bit OS. You may need to browse to locate the appropriate JAVA_HOME location. Check the JDK and click Next.

Verify the installation directory and click Next.

Click Next.

Allow the installation to progress…

Uncheck Run Quickstart and click Done.

 And that's it! It's all quite painless - so let's proceed on to set up SOA Suite, shall we?

    The ODEE Green Field (Part 1 through 5) are an excellent reference when installing Oracle Documaker Enterprise Edition. This is much easier to follow than the various installation manuals for each product and insures the proper selections are made for Documaker. It could use a few minor tweaks for Documaker EE 12.5, but is still an excellent resource. Thank you!

    At some point I will go back and do an update for 12.5, and I also hope to get a version for Linux installs too.. in due time ;-)

    Note! Do not use JDK1.8 with WebLogic 10.3.6. It will not work.
