First run this command in a terminal to start Weblogic Server:
Then run this command in a second terminal to set environment variables to use the nodemanager:
In the same second terminal Start nodemanager with this:
Now open the Administration Console in a navigator and get login, point your url to:
Now start WLS_FORMS and WLS_REPORTS managed servers from the Administration Console, it's very important that you have started nodemanager, otherwise you will not be able to start both services.
turns out that for forms, on linux, your run frmbld.sh which is in the bin directory of the instance home (in my case ~/Oracle/Middleware/asinst_1/bin).
For reports, there is shell script (reports.sh) that has to be sourced first in the bin directory of the oracle home (~/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_FRHome1/bin) and then you can run rwbuilder
for whatever reason, the reports.sh script on my system has the oracle home referenced as $$Instance.oracle_home$$ and the instance directory as $$Instance.directory$$
$$ turns out to expand as the process id, so if your process id is 1234, it thinks your oracle home is 1234Instance.oracle_home1234 which is completely brain dead. why on earth a directory would be dependent on the process id just eludes me.
now that i've run forms and reports builder on linux, i can say it looks ugly and I will just forget it and run it on windows instead.
weird because jdeveloper looks great on ubuntu.
In some way i may say that developing with Forms should be done using Windows since Oracle do not certificates Linux to develop, thats why i think the IDE looks ugly.
