    This post is next in series “Learn WebLogic with Us“,  Till now we learned

    This post covers steps to deploy application (ear, war, jar) on Oracle WebLogic Server


    Things good to know before deploying application on Oracle WLS  

    i) User with Admin or Deployer role can deploy application

    ii) Weblogic supports following type of deployment unit
    a) EAR file (Enterprise Archive)
    b) WAR file (Web Archive) 
    c) JAR files, EJB (Enterprise Java Beans)
    d) RAR (Resource Adapter/Connector )
    e) Web Services (WAR/JAR)
    f) J2EE Library
    g) CAR (Client Application Archive)

    —  Web Archive configuration file is usually …../WEB-INF/web.xml
    —  Enterprise Application (EAR) configuration file is usually …/META-INF/application.xml

    iii) Application name can contain only following character (a-z, A-Z, 0-9, underscore, hyphen, . period/dot)

    iv) Application name with only period/dot (like . or .. or …) is not valid name, it should contain at least one other character.

    v) Application Name should be 215 character or less


    Tools used to deploy/configure applications

    1) weblogic.Deployer – command line interface
    2) Administration Console – Web based interface
    3) WLST(WebLogic Scripting Tool) – command line tool to automate deployment configuration and operation
    4) Tool for developers (wldeploy, weblogic.PlanGenerator, API, autodeploy)


    Steps to Deploy Application using Administration Console

    In this post I’ll cover steps to deploy application using Administration Console 

    Download Sample Application from here  use this file to deploy on WebLogic Server.

    1. Start Administration Console if its not Up already (In my case Administration Server is listening on port 7001) 

    deployment 2

    2) Access Administration console using URL http(s):// <hostName>:<port>/console 

    3) Login using User (with admin or deployer role)  weblogic in my case

    4) First step is to acquire Lock as shown in screen 

    5) Click on deployment

    6) Click on Install button

    7) Select Application (war, jar, ear) File . You should get this application (war, ear, jar) file from development team.

    8) Select Install this deployment as Application and click Next

    9) Activate Canges by clicking on button on left as shown in screen

    10) Start Application by clicking on Start Button

      thank you for this website. tremendous information!

      I followed all steps here,
      When I click ‘Start’ button to start ‘Servicing all requests’ of jspExpressionEar, got this error. wouldn’t start. any idea?

      Message icon – Error java.lang.Exception: [DeploymentService:290049]Deploy failed for id ‘1,225,844,443,766’ since no targets are reachable.

      Thanks in advance.


    4. M. Kim says:

      Found an answer for this.
      I didn’t add a Admin server as a target in a cluster case.

    5. M. Kim says:

      After deployed jspExpressionEar application.
      When I clicked this url http://localhost.localdomain:7001/jspExpressionEar, got this error.

      “Error 404–Not Found”
      10.4.5 404 Not Found

      Any idea?

    6. Atul Kumar says:

      404 means there is no such page to serve from web server .

      Was there any error while deploying this application (ear) ?

    7. M. Kim says:

      No, didn’t get any errors during deployment.
      Where do the web things go? maybe under domain?

      thank you for quick reply.

      Nice article to get started

      please provide step by step deployment of entity beans in oracle weblogic 10.3, using eclipse, and how to configure jms.

    12. Samy says:


      I’m using weblogic 10.3.

      I have problem when i run a web application.
      The problem is accured when weblogic try to compile jsp page that contains such syntax :

      <jsp:param name=”messageKey” value=”” />

      When i change this assertion to :

      <jsp:param name=”messageKey” value=”” />

      It works fine..

      This problem is general with all syntax like this : value=”<%=%>

      It’s a big problem, becaus the application contains more than 2000 jsp pages..

      Are there any special config to add to weblogic configuration files to resolve this problem ?


    13. prashanth says:

      What should be the default installation folder Weblogic installation in Solaris Cluster. Is it right if we use the Globalfs as /weblogic for installation. Will there be any performance issues arise. What is the best practice in case

      Thanks for adivse.


    23. Suresh says:


      When I am trying to deploy the ear file got the below error.

      weblogic.management.DeploymentException: [J2EE:160149]Error while processing library references. Unresolved application library references, defined in weblogic-application.xml: [Extension-Name: adf.oracle.domain, exact-match: false

      Could you please help me to Resolve the issue.


    24. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Suresh,
      You need to deploy library adf.oracle.domain on to managed/admin server on which you are deploying this application.

      From admin server go to “deployments” and then click on adf.oracle.domain(1.0,

      select tab targets and then select server on which you wish to deploy application.

    25. Suresh says:

      Hi Atul,

      Thanks for the quick response. The issue is resolved.

      Facing one more issue which is as java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: oracle.adf.share.weblogic.listeners.ADFApplicationLifecycleListener

      I have removed the library and deployed. I am facing one more issue now, the issue I am facing is “Unresolved Webapp library references” error. Please help me to resolve this.


    26. stalin says:


      I am facing issues when i deploy the webapplication .war file; since the application is made using frame work, I am unable to deploy it successfully.

      is there any solution to get this done? sharing solutions would be appreciated.


    27. Atul Kumar says:

      @ stalin,
      What is error message at time of deployment ?

      Is this custom app (war file) ?

      Did it ever work on any other environment ?
