Connector on Weblogic


If you are installing a newer release, you may need to delete the existing deployment before installing the newer release to avoid problems.

1. Create Datasource
  1. Go to Services page
  2. Choose Data Sources
  3. New Generic Datasource
  4. The Name value does not matter
  5. The JNDI Name value MUST BE jdbc/DARS
  6. Type ORacle
  7. Driver Choose Thin or DataDirect; no need to use Thin XA
  8. Defaults are OK regarding global transactions and one phase commit
  9. Finish db specific parameters and test connection
  10. MUST choose the correct Weblogic server as the Target
2. Download the latest Weblogic release (e.g., ceg44-weblogic-2.war) from the Downloads page.

The Connector Downloads are still maintained in the Support Center at this time.


3. Uncompress war, add school specific properties, rebuild war

Working Directory /tmp/ceg

  • Make sure your current directory is /tmp/ceg when you execute the jar xvf and jar cvf commands below.
  1. cp ceg44-weblogic-2.war /tmp
  2. mkdir /tmp/ceg
  3. cd /tmp/ceg
  4. jar xvf /tmp/ceg44-weblogic-2.war
  5. Replace WEB-INF/classes/ with your existing CEG's; edit as necessary


    Weblogic intercepts the logging by the Connector and prevents the creation of the ceg4.log. The default logging in WEB-INF/classes/ sends logging to stdout and the Weblogic server log.

  6. cd /tmp/ceg
  7. jar cvf /tmp/ceg44-deploy.war *
4. Check /tmp/ceg44-deploy.war
  1. jar tvf /tmp/ceg44*war |grep 
    Output should be similar to the following, the relative path name must be WEB-INF/classes/ and the date/time should coincide with the time of your edit/copy from above:

       518 Fri Apr 13 17:00:48 EDT 2012 WEB-INF/classes/
