    The Oracle WebLogic 11g application server product line is the industry's most comprehensive Java platform for developing, deploying, and integrating enterprise applications. It provides the foundation for application grid, which is an architecture that enables enterprises to outperform their competitors while minimizing operational costs.

    Some notes

    This script may look unsecure (and it is)

    Since password are store inside (admin server login: admin and password is admin), by doing so I can restart Oracle Weblogic in a cron job since stopping wont query the console for the login and password: feel free to remove these lines in blue

    I always recommend to install web process in its own user group and use a dedicated user to mitigate any securities issues:

    # groupadd weblogic
    # useradd -g weblogic-c weblogicuser for weblogic' -m weblogic
    # su – weblogic

    Install then weblogic in /home/weblogic

    Respect the order of component for starting

    1. Start Weblogic Node Manager,
    2. Start WebLogic Admin server,
    3. Start all Managed Server in any order.

    and stopping components

    1. Stop the Node Manager
    2. Stop all Managed WebLogic server
    3. Stop WebLogic

    Names of the managed server

     managed server names are in the script so add remove start and stop command for them

    Logs files of start and stop operations

    are written in 2 files, that use timestamp, see WLS_LOG_START and WLS_LOG_STOP

    /etc/init.d/weblogic file

    Create a new file as root in /etc/init.d/weblogic

    # vi /etc/init.d/weblogic

    and paste inside the following

    # description: webLogic adminServer and managedServer start script

    # customized below to your likings
    WLS_LOG_START=${WLS_BASE}/logs/start.`date '+%d%m%y'`.log
    WLS_LOG_STOP=${WLS_BASE}/logs/stop.`date '+%d%m%y'`.log
    JAVA_OPTIONS="${JAVA_OPTIONS} -Dweblogic.management.username=${WLS_ADMIN_LOGIN}"
    JAVA_OPTIONS="${JAVA_OPTIONS} -Dweblogic.management.password=${WLS_ADMIN_PWD}"

    export JAVA_OPTIONS

    if [ ! -f $WLS_HOME/startWebLogic.sh ]
        echo "WebLogic startup: cannot $WLS_HOME/startWebLogic.sh "

    su - $WLS_OWNER -c "nohup $WLS_NODE_HOME/startNodeManager.sh > ${WLS_LOG_START} 2>&1 &"
    sleep 10
    su - $WLS_OWNER -c "nohup $WLS_HOME/startWebLogic.sh >> ${WLS_LOG_START} 2>&1 &"
    sleep 10
    su - $WLS_OWNER -c "nohup $WLS_HOME/bin/startManagedServer.sh >> ${WLS_LOG_START} 2>&1 &"
    sleep 10
    su - $WLS_OWNER -c "nohup $WLS_HOME/bin/startManagedServer.sh >> ${WLS_LOG_START} 2>&1 &"
    return 0

    su - $WLS_OWNER -c "nohup $WLS_NODE_HOME/stopNodeManager.sh > ${WLS_LOG_STOP} 2>&1 &"
    sleep 10
    su - $WLS_OWNER -c "nohup $WLS_HOME/bin/stopManagedWebLogic.sh $WLS_MANAGED_SERVER1t3://localhost:$WLS_ADMIN_PORT ${WLS_ADMIN_LOGIN} ${WLS_ADMIN_PWD} >> ${WLS_LOG_STOP} 2>&1 &"
    sleep 10
    su - $WLS_OWNER -c "nohup $WLS_HOME/bin/stopManagedWebLogic.sh $WLS_MANAGED_SERVER2 t3://localhost:$WLS_ADMIN_PORT  ${WLS_ADMIN_LOGIN} ${WLS_ADMIN_PWD}>> ${WLS_LOG_STOP} 2>&1 &"
    sleep 10
    su - $WLS_OWNER -c "nohup $WLS_HOME/bin/stopWebLogic.sh >> ${WLS_LOG_STOP} 2>&1 &"
    return 0

    case "$1" in
            echo "Usage: $0 start|stop|restart"
            exit 1

  • In this series of post I will outline some common techniques to help Joomla extensions development.

    As you know Joomla is shipped with Mootools library which assign $ also to Ajax. Here is 2 tips that will allow you to use jQuery scripts without any modifications (most of the time you will find tips to assign jQuery to something else than $ and rewrite your scripts)

    First it is recommended to include always mootools first to avoid jQuery conflict issues

    $document = JFactory::getDocument();
    $document->addScript(JURI::root() . "media/com_cedtag/js/jquery.1.7.2.min.js");

    then to run jQuery in noConflict mode. Note that here I do not assign jQuery to any alias.


    Till here, this is what you will find on all Joomla forums, posts over the internet. The last tips is what make the difference!

    Instead of using a different alias for the jQuery object (when using noConflict), you can write your jQuery code by wrapping it all in a closure. This can be done in the document.ready function

    $script = "jQuery(function($) { $();

    });"; $document->addScriptDeclaration($script);

    This way you are not force to rewrite your scripts to use another alias (replacing $ with jquery alias for example in all your scripts). This make inclusion of jQuery really easy!

    Happy Coding!

    jocomment I did install yesterday evening the latest version of !JoomlaComment

    !JoomlaComment is one of the first extensions for Joomla,that let you comment under articles.

    The !JoomlaComment system can be installed on any joomla website within seconds! Make
    your website more interactive!

    Main Features:

    • ajax-based
    • captcha protection
    • akismet support
    • ubb code support
    • threathed/nested comments
    • multilanguage support
    • mail, website input
    • See more features here

    Joomla support templates, depending on which templates you use

    • MTdefault-emotop, these templates MTxxxx use mootols 1.11
    • JQdefaut-emotop, these templates JQxxxx use Jquery
    • ..

    You may behind the scene include another additional AJAX library in Joomla!® frontend, this lead to performance issues:

    If !JoomlaComment use JQuery 1.1.4 and not the AJAX library of Joomla!, aka Mootools 1.11. Another huge JavaScript files that make my server busier!

    Since any static files can be offloaded to another server to gain more speed. For example, any static images, JavaScript or CSS files can be moved to a different server for more speed.

    In order to be able to offload this JavaScript library to Google code, you’ll have to do the following:

    In the template you are using, for example in components/com_comment/joscomment/templates/JQdefault-emotop/index.html

    Search for

    <script type="text/javascript" src="components/com_comment/joscomment/jscripts/jquery-1.1.4.pack.js"></script>

    and replace with

    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js"></script> 

    Note that I use here the latest JQuery version (1.3.2) and not the default version of !joomlaComment (1.1.4), here is why

    • This version 1.1.4 is not available at jquery">http://code.google.com/apis/ajaxlibs/documentation/jquery :-)
    • I did test the frontend of !JoomlaComment 4.0 with JQuery 1.3.2 and it work great
