Today, I tried to use Maven with WebLogic 12c. The documentation for installation is straight forward. I was able to execute
mvn wls:help without any difficulty.
However, using the WebLogic plugin wasn’t as easy. In order to run commands such as
mvn wls:start-server, I needed to configure various parameters, such as
name. Instead of specifying these parameters every time I run the command, I added the following config to
<!-- WebLogic Server 12c Maven Plugin --> <plugin> <groupId>com.oracle.weblogic</groupId> <artifactId>wls-maven-plugin</artifactId> <version>22.214.171.124</version> <configuration> <artifactLocation> com.oracle.weblogic:wls-dev:zip:126.96.36.199 </artifactLocation> <middlewareHome>/export/apps/wls</middlewareHome> <domainHome>/export/apps/wlsdomains/d1</domainHome> <user>weblogic</user> <password>welcome1</password> <name>applicationName</name> </configuration> </plugin>
After that, I was able to run the following commands without manually entering additional parameters.
mvn wls:start-server mvn wls:deploy mvn wls:list-apps mvn wls:undeploy mvn wls:stop-server
Initially, I noticed the following error when attempting to deploy/undeploy the web app. This appears to go away after I restarted the server.
