Supported WebLogic and JDK versions for Oracle Entitlement Server

It is important to know which WebLogic versions and JDK versions are supported with Oracle Entitlement Server. If you would like to see the Certification matrix for OES, here it is. Only WebLogic 10.3.0 is supported for Admin and SSM, if you are using WebLogic Portal, 10.2.0 is supported.

From my experience, WebLogic 10.3.1 is also supported by Admin and SSMs. But one should be very careful while using JDK versions while installing. I have tested JDK 6 for Admin Server and SSM while installing and it works fine. Incase you are protecting a WebLogic domain using WebLogic SSM, you would specify the JDK version while creating the domain using config wizard. It is better to use JDK 5 instead of 6. Follow the same for WebLogic Portal as JDK 5 while creating domain.

I have seen weird errors in the scenario where WebLogic Portal is being protected by OES. I created the WebLogic Portal domain with JDK6 and tried to create the SSM instance using ConfigTool. The ConfigTool stopped after the below message is shown in the response.

Checking if default ARME port is free: 8014
Generating policy files based on templates …
Checking if SSM instance already present
Checking to see if SSM ARME port is free.
Checking JDBC parameters…
Checking to see if asipassword was run…
Assuming Domain is Weblogic 9.x and above
Checking WLS version number…
Checking to see if weblogic server is running
Weblogic server not running
Checking to see if weblogic server starts (This may take several min. depending on the host) logging into weblogic server.

The solution is to create the domain using JDK 5 version.

Hi Atul,

I am trying to install R12.1.1 for the eigth time on my latop. I want my Laptop instance to run as a standlone. No network connection.
I am using VMPlayer now on Windows/7 (originally I was on XP).

1. Where would I get the newst version JDK
for R12 eBS VISION installation? And is it free? Will the upgrading JDK resolve JSP page
from failing at postinstall.

2. Here is my hosts file:
====
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionailty will fail
127.0.0.1 stevenr1211.silva stevenr1211
127.0.0.1 localhost.licaldomain localhost
::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
====
Is the above hosts format correct?? Remember the instance is a standalone not net connection.

Can you give me in example on how the HOST machine is connected to guest machine??

Currently in the process of another install–my installs take along time…can you give me what is average time needed for a install?

Thank you,
Manny
