How to find out which weblogic server version installed on the machine


There are couple of ways you can check which version of weblogic server installed on the machine.

Note: this may vary on your machine.

1. In Middleware home $MW_HOME/registry.xml file look for entry as follows

component name="WebLogic Server" version="" InstallDir="/u01/Oracle/Middleware/wlserver_10.3"

2. Check AdminServer's log file at $DOMAIN_HOME/servers/AdminServer/logs/AdminServer.log

Run the following command you will see something similar

$ grep "WebLogic Server" AdminServer.log

<WebLogic Server "AdminServer" version:
WebLogic Server Temporary Patch for 9893068 Wed Jul 21 16:53:44 EDT 2010

3. Go to $WL_HOME/server/lib

Run the following command

$ java -cp weblogic.jar weblogic.version

You will see the similar info

  1. hi....can you tell me about the diffidence between the versions in weblogic ?

  2. How can know what type of Weblogic edition (standar, enterprise or suite) had installed the client?

    1. Hi Joha,

      There is only one installer for WebLogic server. The edition differentiates what features you are using for example If you are using Coherence then it is under Enterprise edition licencing.

      You need to contact Oracle sales person for more details on it.
