Installing jsr-168 portlets on BEA WPS

I've got a jsr-168 war file that I'm testing out on different portal servers. For Jetspeed, you just drop the war file into the /deploy directory. For IBM Websphere Portal, you use the install portlet tool, where you just specify the war file location.

But I've not figured out how to deploy these to WebLogic Portal Server (v9.2 or 8.1). I've read through a ton of documentation on BEA's site, but haven't had any luck. Does anyone know how to deploy jsr-168 war files to BEA WPS?

Hi Chad,

On WLS, You can deploy application either from weblogic workshop or from weblogic console.

On weblogic server 8.1, every server runs under some domain.

First you have to create a domain from Configuration wizard.

Configuration wizard you can find from start-->>program files-->>bea weblogic.

Create your domain under some directory on operating system.

Once domain is created start weblogic server. You can find startWebLogic.cmd file in your domain folder (D:\Softwares\bea\user_projects\domains) if you have installed bea in d:\softwares.

Once server gets started, open weblogic console...http://localhost:7001/console

Weblogic console is basically an applet. From console you can deploy all kinds of application (like war, ear) or even modules(jar, war) etc.

Hope this will help.

Regards

Naseem

Thanks, I was able to at least install the war, although I haven't figured out how to actually deploy/install the portlets on a page. BEA WLS is much more complicated than any other portal server I've used. The concept of Books and Pages within books is confusing; I don't see any clear way to quickly deploy and install third-party portlets.
