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