Installing the OSB without using a database

Peter Lorenzen

It is not required to use a database when installing the OSB if you do not use the OSB Reporting or the OWSM. This is stated in the documentation. I cannot find the same statement in the documentation but it is still true though.

You will get an error in the domain configuration wizard if you do not configure a JDBC data source:

CFGFWK-40006: The driver class listed below was not found in the product installation

Domain wizard error message

The error can be ignored so just press OK.

When you try to start the Admin Server you will also get some errors:

<Critical> <JTA> <BEA-110482> <A logging last resource failed during
The server cannot boot unless all configured logging last resources
 (LLRs) initialize. Failing reason:
Cannot load driver class: org.apache.derby.jdbc.ClientDriver

<Error> <Deployer> <BEA-149205> <Failed to initialize the
 application 'wlsbjmsrpDataSource'
 due to error weblogic.application.ModuleException:

You can get around these errors by untarget the wlsbjmsrpDataSource data source. You can do this manually by editing the config.xml file:

Untarget data source

You can also use WLST scripting.

Now you should be able to use the OSB :-)

Default a Derby database is started automatic with the OSB. To prevent this edit the and change the DERBY_FLAG to false:

It worked! It was help for me, indeed.
I had worked around config files like anything and screwed my settings for three times before reading this post.
It is not the exact place to ask but can you suggest any books/online resources (except Oracle documentation) to get around with WebLogic? Thanks in advance.

Glad that it helped you out. I have just bought this. Looks interesting.
I also have this which has some interesting chapters, but there is a lot of stuff for developers in this book which does not interest me :-)

Thanks for response, Peter. Looking forward to this blog.
