One of the most common questions we get asked with ConfigNOW is how do I get started and it is actually very simple. Firstly download the installation package from our web site.

and then unpack it in to a directory, I’m using D:\ConfigNOW

Now simply go to the directory where you have installed ConfigNOW and edit the D:\ConfigNOW\config\environments\local\ file, this is a simple WebLogic configuration that we are going to load.

In the file change to reflect the home directory of your WebLogic installation, for example\oracle\middleware

and wls.domain.javahome to reflect the JDK that you wish to use, for example


Go back to the main ConfigNOW installation directory and run.

D:\ConfigNOW>confignow create_domain local simple

That’s all you need to do!  You now have a working WebLogic domain that you could boot using the command

D:\ConfigNOW>confignow start_wls_admin local simple
