Before ADF 11g you had an ADF installer or JDeveloper which you can use to install the ADF libraires on the Application Server. With JDeveloper 11G and WebLogic 10.3 Oracle has changed this deployment procedure. This blog will show you how you can install the ADF 11G libraries on the WebLogic 10.3 Server.
First we install WebLogic on the server and make sure it works. Now we have to download JDeveloper 11G and put this jdeveloper installer on the server where you installed WebLogic.
Start the JDeveloper 11g installer where we will select the middleware home of the WebLogic installation.
Select the ADF runtime option. JDeveloper Studio is optional.
And finish the installation. Next we can start the configuration wizard on the WebLogic where we change the domain and add the ADF libraries to it.
I want to extend the already existing domain.
Select the webLogic domain in my case wlserver_10.3/samples/domain/wl_server
Now we can enable the ADF option to the domain configuration
and press extend and we are ready.
start the WebLogic server and go to the console application where we will see the ADF library in the deployments overview.
