I am pasting the read me file contents of this book...i registered at the site mentioned but i didn't receive any email about the password

READ ME FIRST for "J2EE Applications and BEA WebLogic Server"

**Important information about installing the evaluation copy of BEA WebLogic Server 6.0**

In order to install BEA WebLogic Server 6.0, you must REGISTER on the BEA Website to obtain your 30-day evaluation software license keys.

Once you've registered, you will immediately be sent an e-mail with the relevant instructions.

Use the following URL to register:

After you register, you will be sent a password to use in the BEA Developers Center. This password gives you access to documentation and technical support for your use during the evaluation period.


(1) Install BEA WebLogic Server ("WLS") by double-clicking on the executable
/weblogic/weblogic600_win.exe . When the installation wizard appears, accept the default choices.

You MUST install WebLogic Server on a root directory named "wlserver6.0" in order to use the code samples and scripts for the book.

(2) After WebLogic Server is installed, install the EJB2.0 upgrade by copying the ejb2.0.jar archive (supplied) to the wlserver6.0/lib directory. Further information about this upgrade appears in the file "README-EJB20.html".


Each chapter contains pointers to the relevant sample code and scripts for the examples in that chapter.

Chapter 14 describes, step by step, how to build the WebAuction sample application.

IMPORTANT NOTE on the examples: after you copy over example files, you must CHANGE THE PERMISSIONS from read-only to full permissions, for all files and folders. In Windows 2000, you can change permissions for all files and folders by modifying the Properties of a top-level folder.

Directories in the CD:

/examples --> book examples

/webauction --> webauction sample application
/webauction/ --> complete webauction package

/weblogic --> BEA WebLogic Server 6.0 software
/weblogic/ejb20.jar --> EJB 2.0 Upgrade for WLS
/weblogic/weblogic600_win.exe --> WLS 6.0

That must be a pretty old book. I hope you don't really need to use version 6.0 of WebLogic Server. It is out of date and unsupported. Hardly worth using as a learning tool.

People in most countries can download recent versions of WebLogic Server from the oracle website; the downloads typically come with free developer licenses.

weblogic 6 is out-of-date version and with no support from oracle. Please move to the latest version of the weblogic app server.

Support for WL 6 was removed around a year back I think. Move to WL 10.X
