Solution for installing the ADF 126.96.36.199.0 Runtimes onto a standalone WLS 10.3.6
By Chris Muir-Oracle on Mar 30, 2012
A few customers are hitting the following problem with regards to JDeveloper 188.8.131.52.0 so it's worth documenting a solution.
As noted in my previous post the ADF Runtimes for JDeveloper 184.108.40.206.0 will work against a 10.3.5 and 10.3.6 WLS server. In terms of the JDeveloper 220.127.116.11.0 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 18.104.22.168.0 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 22.214.171.124.0 ADF Runtime Libraries installer available from OTN (see the options under "Application Development Runtime").
