I still want to know how best to share the images between the various weblogic managed servers (exploded images will be better one. so that I can copy images anytime with out needing to deploy and undeploy images)If you have some shared storage in your infrastructure (e.g. via nfs mount) you could use a virtual-directory-mapping. There is a [url http://krisrice.blogspot.de/2011/07/apex-listener-wls-serving-static-files.html]nice video tutorial by Kris you adapt to your scenario. Of course, you'll also find information in the WLS documentation when searching for that keyword.
