Script to start/stop Weblogic 11, 12

Posted on 2015-01-20
Last Modified: 2015-02-05
I have an application that runs on Weblogic 11 and need a way to stop and  start Weblogic, plus have it start automatically when the Windows 2008 server is rebooted.

In the JBoss environment we installed a Window Service using a 'bat' script provided by the vendor, but I was told in the Weblogic environment creating a Window Service needed a Registry change which requires lots of paper work on this server.

Please provide instructions for developing a procedure to stop/start Weblogic and automate startup on server boot that does not require Registry changes..

Also, please provide solution for Weblogic 12 as we will likely upgrade.

You need to invoke startWeblogic.bat
Then startManagedWeblogic.bat for each managed server JVM
It is much easier to do as a service.

My customer told us this server would not be set up as a Managed Server.  Is there a solution that does not require using Managed Server?

Running web applications in same process as Adminserver is not recommended and is very insecure.
Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

Just to be clear so I can present this to management.  Is it 'Best Practice' to use Managed Servers? And to not is a security risk?

Production mode will not permit to deploy web applications in admin server. also doc links to some guides on how to manage start scripts/services.
