In my previous blog article I described the steps for creating a database instance within the Oracle Database Cloud Service. In this article I will describe the steps for creating a WebLogic instance within the Java Cloud Service, and connecting it to the database instance created previously.

Using the credentials provided to you by Oracle when you purchased your subscription, login in to the My Services console for the Oracle Cloud. Then navigate to the Oracle Java Cloud Services Console.

In my case I would like a 12c instance, but you can also select 11g. Click the Next button.

The Oracle Java Cloud Service does not currently support WebLogic Standard Edition, so I will select Enterprise Edition.  Click the Next button.

Oracle does not provide the password to the users that are created on the VM host. You must therefore generate public/private key pair using an SSH and provide the VM Public Key to the instance configuration as shown above.

To attach this instance to the Database Cloud Service I created in the previous article I simply select the instance and provide the credentials for the database administrator.

I could choose to create a separate storage container for this instance, but for simplicity I will utilize the storage container I created for the Database Cloud Service instance.

Click the Create button.

Verify the information and click the Create button to create the instance.  Note that it takes about 45 minutes to complete the instance creation process.

Once the instance is created, click on the instance name to view its details.

Click on the gear icon to retrieve monitoring information for the WebLogic servers within this instance. You can also open the WebLogic Server Console or Fusion Middleware Control Console by clicking on the icon in the upper-right-hand corner.
