Steps to Install Oracle Weblogic 12.2.1 for PeopleTools 8.56
Download the Oracle Weblogic 12.2.1 file from Oracle Cloud. It would be by the name Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c (126.96.36.199.0) WebLogic Server and Coherence (V779119-01.zip) – you can unzip it upon download.
Make sure JAVA_HOME environment variable is declared. If you follow the JDK install steps, you’ll note that I did not install Java in the default C:\Program Files location. Instead I installed it in C:\Java. This is because Oracle Weblogic does not support spaces in the location path, which “Program Files” has.
Open command prompt and navigate to the extracted Weblogic folder. We need to run the file inside that – fmw_188.8.131.52.0_wls.jar by executing the command:
%JAVA_HOME%\bin\java -jar fmw_184.108.40.206.0_wls.jar
