How are you installing ADF 12.1.3?
Here is the procedure
If the above is not working for you.
1. Do you see the ADF libs in the weblogic <domain>/config/config.xml?
2. What is the output of opatch lsinventory?
Yes, 12.1.3 infrastructure.using the java -jar method.
The libraries get installed into the oracle_common/modules correctly.
The config.xml does not contain any of the applications and libraries.
In 11g the option was to upgrade a domain - there is no option for that in 12c.
I had to guess that it was the required files. (I did not try to do the em or anything else at this time.)
I used my integrated server and manually entered the applications and libraries successfully and they appear in the domain/config.xml fine.
At least this got me around the rcu issue.
One of the major issues is the rcu (I am not in a clustered environment - yet I have to configure for it!)
I had to guess at what was needed (there should have been an option for ADF Runtime).
I have one remaining issue - the shared security does not seem to be working (I am using a SQLAuthenticator).
It would have been nice to have a list of the items needed (I think there is a missing item - security is different in the integrated environment).
I finally found a solution for this on the web that works:
Without the rcu - you cannot update a domain for adf - so you need to do the workaround. Tha Oracle JRF is actually the ADF (LOL).
(I cannot remember where I found this - but thanks to someone - I think it was an Oracle person)
The Steps to Install Without Needing a Database
First of all install WebLogic (wls_121200.jar) and the ADF runtime (fmw_infra_121200.jar) into the same 12c Oracle Home using their respective installers. At the end of each of the WebLogic install make sure you uncheck the Configuration Wizard launch option as we'll be doing that manually later.
Start a shell / command prompt in $MW_HOME/wlserver/common/bin
Set the environment variable QS_TEMPLATES to point to $MW_HOME/wlserver/common/templates/wls/wls_jrf.jar
Run qs_config.sh and define the name of the domain that you want to create (e.g. add_domain) along with the usual WebLogic passwords and ports that you require. Finish the Quick Start wizard without starting the new domain.
Now run the conventional config.sh and on the first page choose "Update an Existing Domain" rather than "Create a new domain". The new domain (e.g. adf_domain) should now be listed for selection.
On the second screen choose the templates that you wish to apply, e.g. Oracle JRF, Oracle Enterprise Manager etc. and move on through the wizard.
On the Database Configuration Type screen this time you will see an extra option where Embedded Database (JavaDB) is offered and pre-selected. Select that and continue with the domain setup as usual with whatever managed servers you need.
