Deploying applications or libraries to WebLogic Server using command line

Here is how you can automate deployment for WebLogic server using command line.

First source the env settings from the server:
$ source $ML_HOME/server/bin/setWLSEnv.sh

Deploy Library:
$ java weblogic.Deployer -nostage -deploy -library \
-adminurl localhost:7001 \
-username weblogic -password my_secret \
-targets myserver \
my_shared_lib.war


Deploy Application:
$ java weblogic.Deployer -nostage -deploy \
-adminurl localhost:7001 \
-username weblogic -password my_secret \
-targets myserver \
-name myapp.war myapp.war


For development, you likely want to use the "-nostage" meaning to deploy the app or library directly from the file system. This means any changes to that file location and a reload from WLS will take effect immediately.

For undeploy the command line options are same for library or app but with matching name.
$ java weblogic.Deployer -undeploy \
-adminurl localhost:7001 \
-username weblogic -password my_secret \
-targets myserver \
-name myapp_or_lib.war
