These concepts are not new. They have been around since 6.0 was released back in December 2000.

You need to create a Domain using the Domain Configuration Wizard, if you haven't already, or use an existing example Domain.
Next, run the startWebLogic.cmd in your Domain directory to start up a Standalone Server for that Domain.

Hi Sunit ,
The Online documentation is good, but if you are a beginner it would be great if you can start with a good book.

I agree. They have many separate sections for the online. It is just out there. You sometimes have to look a little to find what you need.

Once you pull down the install executable, just run it. When WLS7.0 is installed, you can (on a Windoze box anyway) just go to your start menu and choose..
BEA Weblogic Platform 7.0->WebLogic Server 7.0->Server Tour and Examples->Start Examples Server
This will start Weblogic and bring up a browser on the default index.html page. Once here, you can navigate to a "fast start" page that will show you how to quickly deploy HTML, JSP and Servlet files, with and without using a WAR file.
EJBs are a little more involved, but Weblogic is very good about getting you up and running in a short period of time.

Thanks Chris.
Please correct me if I am wrong anywhere.
You need to create a Domain using the Domain Configuration Wizard, if you haven't already, or use an existing example Domain.
Does it mean that a new server runs for each Domain ?
Is domain is like context ??
Can you explain what is domain in weblogic ??
Next, run the startWebLogic.cmd in your Domain directory to start up a Standalone Server for that Domain.
From where I can get startWebLogic.cmd.
If I simply copy startExamplesServer.cmd and rename it. Will it work ??
Thanks a lot for your time.
Thanks & Regards

I think when I will create domain from domain wizard then it will create startup.cmd also.
If it wont create then I will come back again
obviously with solution.

Domian wizard writes startup scripts for you
From the same page :
In addition to the config.xml file, the Configuration Wizard creates server startup scripts, application subdirectories, and other files and directories to help you start and use the new domain and its servers. Scripts are populated with the values that you enter using the Configuration Wizard.

Yes, you may have one or more server instances for each domain.
To learn more about domains visit:
http://e-docs.bea.com/wls/docs70/admin_domain/overview.html


Next, run the startWebLogic.cmd in your Domain directory to start up a Standalone Server for that Domain.

Navigate to:
%domain_name% directory and run startweblogic.cmd from a dos console, in my case the domain I use is under C:\bea\projetos\engesoftware, you may also run the examplesServer running the script you mentioned startExamplesServer.cmd
