In this post, I am going to present, how to provision very easy and fast a Weblogic Application Server - FMW infrastructure with enabled JRF template and fully operational domain ready for ADF Application.
Oracle provides a very easy process for WebLogic installation by using a predefined image that is ready for cloud deployment and simple integration with all surrounding services in the cloud.
If you following the below steps you will see how simple is to bring up, for example, WebLogic with ATP database or Database as a Service with that internal development and predefined integration in the image it will make the process for deployment seamless
I will share a lot of tips and tricks and some of the process for debugging and testing in case of troubles
First, prior to any actions, you need to have Oracle account as Oracle Cloud free tier
There are a lot of testing on the way how to create RCU schemas on ATP database with the normal Admin user, its look like that there are some tricks :)
I spend a lot of time debugging and testing the issue and the only way that preliminary is visible is that the process should be divided in a few steps.
- script generation
- execute generated scripts with sqlplus
- data load
hmm... after some time I take a look into Oracle Marketplace to check what kind of images with WebLogic are there... and guess what I find out?
WebLogic Standard Edition with the possibility to integrate with ATP database or Database on VM -( Database Service )
If Oracle has already Weblogic integration with ATP database, this means that all that I need is to find out how they manage to create such RCU schemas with admin user.

This year will be time for migration from an on-premise customer environment to the Cloud which is not a very easy task with all unknown complexity compare to on-premise.
My recommendation: if you have the plan to migrate the application to Kubernetes architecture first to migrate your on-premise environment to the Cloud in order to discover all specifics, what is supported and what is not supported from infrastructure, Application, Database etc.
