Solution for installing the ADF 11.1.1.6.0 Runtimes onto a standalone WLS 10.3.6

A few customers are hitting the following problem with regards to JDeveloper 11.1.1.6.0 so it's worth documenting a solution.

As noted in my previous post the ADF Runtimes for JDeveloper 11.1.1.6.0 will work against a 10.3.5 and 10.3.6 WLS server.  In terms of the JDeveloper 11.1.1.6.0 download Oracle has coupled the 10.3.5 server with that release, not a 10.3.6 server.

This has caught some customers out as they are attempting to use the JDeveloper installer to load the 11.1.1.6.0 ADF Runtimes into the middleware home of a standalone 10.3.6 WLS server.  When doing so the installer complains as follows:

"The product maintenance level of the current server (WebLogic Server: 10.3.5.0) is not compatible with the maintenance level of the product installed on your system (WebLogic Server: 10.3.6.0).  Please obtain a compatible installer or perform maintenance or your current system to achieve the desired level."

The solution is to install the runtimes using the standalone 11.1.1.6.0 ADF Runtime Libraries installer available from OTN (see the options under "Application Development Runtime").

Hi Chris,
Can you tell me which home I specify in the installer to make this work? The dropdown shows me the JDeveloper homes, when I enter the WLS10.3.6 home it doesn't detect that it is a WLS, and I am stuck in the next screen because it isn't WebSphere either. How did you do this?

Thanks!

Hi Wendy

Sorry for the slow reply, I've been on holidays.

You're correct that the installer should identify the WLS10.3.6 home in the drop down and because of this, this is why you're getting the wrong option for WebSphere on the next screen.

Assuming you've installed WLS10.3.6 standalone in its own directory, and on a Windows box, you should find an entry for the WLS10.3.6 home in the C:\bea\beahomelist file. While I don't know, my best guess is the poplist from the installer gets the values for the FMW homes from this file.

CM.
