look at /etc/passwd and /etc/groups. See what ID he has and what groups he belongs to. That will give you a first idea. However it really depends on the applications on your system. They might have different authentication and/or authorization systems. So, without further specification, it's hard to tell you anything.

That should be easy.

$ cd /
$ find . -user "weblogic" -print

That will show everything belong to the user "weblogic"  on your system.
