FlexDeploy is a J2EE application which may be installed on WebLogic or Tomcat application servers.


WebLogic Setup

Installation and Domain setup

Install WebLogic 12.1.3 including JRF 12.1.3. For help creating a new installation, see WebLogic 12.1.3 Installation Scripts. We recommend that you follow WebLogic 12.1.3 Installation Scripts to save time spent in installation process. After installing WebLogic with JRF, Creation of Domain, Configure a WebLogic Managed Server is also automated with WebLogic 12.1.3 Installation Scripts.

Create FlexDeploy Managed Server

If you followed all steps in WebLogic 12.1.3 Installation Scripts, then you will already have FlexDeploy_Server1 with JRF template.

  • Login into the WebLogic Administration Console
    • http://<adminserver host>:<adminserver port>/console
  • Create a WebLogic Cluster and Managed Server for installation of the FlexDeploy EAR file.
    • For the purpose of these instruction let's assume you named the cluster FlexDeploy_Cluster, and the managed server FlexDeploy_Server1. You can name the cluster and managed server as per your standards. FlexDeploy_Server1 will be referenced in next section, if you used different names adjust accordingly.

    • Make sure to apply JRF Template on WebLogic Managed Server (FlexDeploy_Server1). FlexDeploy must be installed on only one Managed Server, so do not create more than one Managed Server.
