    Weblogic 10.3.5 install on Windows


      We are trying to install weblogic 10.3.5 on windows 7 64 bit machine .

      We downloaded the setup from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/weblogic/downloads/wls-main-097127.html - Column (Additional Platforms (For 64-bit JVM Support, See Note Above)) installer Oracle WebLogic Server 11gR1 (10.3.5) + Coherence - Package Installer ---- file Generic: 1 GB

      It downloaded a zip file, which contains no exe file within it. Is der any other way to install it on windows machine?

      Please suggest.

          To install Weblogic Server for 64 bit is slightly different whether for Windows OS or Linux OS.

          1. First you install 64 Bit JDK either Sun JDK or BEAs proprietory JRockit. They both have 64 bit jdk.

          2. Set the above 64 bit jdk in the Env PATH. Because by default when you run java -version it may show the default jdk that comes with windows or linux. so first set path env variable and make sure to run java -version to show your 64 bit JDK.

          3. NOW download the generic installer which is .jar file of 1 GB. Incase if it is downloaded as zip, rename that to .jar. I checked just now and I see that it is .jar file and should download as .jar instead of .zip file.

          4. You will NOT see any .exe installer. Instead use the below command. At one point it does show and use your 64 bit JDK during the installation process.
          java -d64 -jar wlsversion_generic.jar

          See the below notes from the above link in the last section:

          If you are installing WebLogic Server on a 64-bit platform using a .jar installation program:

          Include the -d64 flag in the installation command when using a 32/64-bit hybrid JDK (such as for the HP-PA, HPIA, and Solaris64 platforms. For example, if installing in graphical mode using the package installer:

          java -d64 -jar wlsversion_generic.jar

          Run the java -version command (or java -d64 -version command on platforms using a 32/64-bit hybrid JDK) to ensure that your JAVA_HOME refers to a 64-bit JDK.
