I might be mistaken, but my understanding of Weblogic is it is a J2EE application server like Tomcat. The backend behind the J2EE applications do not necessarily need to be an Oracle Database so you can think of these as independent; however, on installation, I would go with Oracle 11g first and then setup the web application server Weblogic. If there are any hooks, I would expect them to be from Weblogic recognizing Oracle and for example taking advantage of that knowledge during setup of classpath, etc.

Agree with mwvisa1.  I worked with an application running on Weblogic only once and if I recall correctly the time when you need to get database details is when you configure the application (in our case Adobe Livecycle) to connect to a database.  So it shouldn't really matter which one is to be installed first. What matters is Oracle database is already installed and you have an instance ready when you start installing your application.

Either of the software can be installed at first ...
As both if the above comment are correct  only while configurations your application a DB is required, if Oracle is already installed then setting up your application will be easy.
