A Oracle WebLogic project to perform a WebLogic Configuration and War file Deployment

Project overview

This project is designed to perform a configuration and War file deployment to a pre-existing WebLogic Instance.

The server in the project is Linux.

The project is preconfigured with one target server.


  • A remote Linux server with firewall configuration that allow connection from the machine when RapidDeploy instance is installed (for testing purposes we suggest to turn the firewall off).
  • Pre-installed users, groups, SDK and WebLogic binary zip file. Use the WebLogic 12c Prepare OS Blueprint to set up these prerequisites.
  • Pre-installed WebLogic installation. Use the WebLogic 12c Binary Installer Blueprint to install WebLogic.

What is preconfigured and demonstrated.

The project demonstrates the following configurations:
  • One target server for Linux. The user will need to configure the actual hostname for this logical server definition, and any SSH credentials such as username, password or key/pem file.

How to use this project.

  7. Once the project is imported, there are a couple of things you’ll need to do.
    • Firstly, you will need to change the server configuration. In order to do that navigate to  Resources -> Targets -> Servers and find  wls-Server   (this is the name we used in our sample project). Edit this server – put correct Hostname then navigate to Transport tab and check if it is possible to connect to your remote Linux server by clicking Test Connection.
    • Note that Successful connection is mandatory to go further!
    • Secondly, in the uploaded project, you will need to change the data dictionary properties for your installation. Navigate to Resources -> Projects select the WLS12-Deploy project and on the  Orchestration   tab, select the Data Dictionary sub-tab. Review and change entries as required, and save the project.
    • You need to create deployment package for the project . Go to the  Packages tab, click  Create Package button.
  8. Now you can run a new job to the environment of your choice.
    • Select the Play button next to the target.
    • Select the package you want to deploy from the droplist.
    • Since there is only one package, it is preselected. The latest package will always be preselected by default.
    • Click on the  Yes  button in this dialog.
    • The deployment is started and you are taken to the running jobs panel where you see the tasks executed and job log in real time.Navigate to Project -> Targets Tab.
