Creating the Application Domain

In our project for Galactic Avatar Corp., other members of the team will be building out the web servers, database, and network infrastructure. These tasks are in process, and our main dependency in installing the portal domain is the database. Without it, we cannot complete the install, so we have asked that it be prioritized for us by the project manager.

There are two manual ways to invoke the configuration script that creates the portal domain. The first is command line, and the second is GUI mode. The default is GUI mode for the obvious productivity reasons. There is also a method of silent install available to you via BEA WebLogic WLS scripting language. This is an invocation of Jython, with extensions written by BEA. This language can be used against a "template" domain to create a new domain. If you do a lot of domains with essentially the same configuration, this can be of great help.

In this next section, we will describe the graphical installation mode. This begs the question, "Why would I want to install on the command line?" Well, you may be in a situation where you cannot launch the GUI due to firewall configurations or bandwidth across the data link. For brevity's sake, I have not discussed the console mode of installation, but I can be contacted if you have the need.
