  1. hi mukesh how to see weblogic version

    bash : no command found

    1. Make sure you have java included in your classpath or you can directly run it from the java instanned location....$JAVA_HOME/bin/java -version

  2. Hi Mukesh,

    Can you please explain how can I include java in my classpath? I am running webligic 12.1 in MAC OS . I am getting " Exception in thread main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: weblogic/version "

    Please help me.


    1. First run and the run command.

  3. Hi Mukesh,
    Thanks for your reply. I did run I also set classpath as "set CLASSPATH=$CLASSPATH:Users\kausiksarkar\oracle\Middleware\wlserver_12.1\server\lib\weblogic.jar" but always getting same result. I tried to run that from $JAVA_HOME/bin and also did not get any result.

    This commands are running perfectly in my windows 8 though.

    Thanks again for your time.

  9. Use the wls admin console web interface, domain > Environment > Servers > AdminServer > Monitoring > WebLogic Version

  10. hi mukesh,
    java weblogic.utils.Versions using this command bt i got a class not found exception

  11. @ishwarya - use in this form - java -cp D:\Oracle\Middleware\wlserver_12.1\server\lib\weblogic.jar weblogic.version

  12. Negi Ji,
    It can easily be found in weblogic console
    In the WebLogic console, in the left navigation tree, click on "Environment", then "Servers". Then click on one of the servers in the list. Then click on the "Monitoring" tab. Look at the "WebLogic Version" field.
