clip_image002In this post, we will set-up a WebLogic Server environment on Linux 7 hosts; Show how to create systemd unit files for the Node Manager and the Apache HTTP Server (that contains the WebLogic Server Proxy Plug-In); See how automation tools, such as Ansible, can be made operating system version aware such that the same configuration can be used for multiple operating system distributions; Finally, we will test the environment.
And yes, WebLogic Server is supported on Linux 7 – just take a look at the certification matrix. Here, we see that WebLogic 12.1.3 with Oracle JDK 1.8.0_20+ is certified on Linux 7 (Oracle Linux 7 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7).
