How to install BEA WebLogic Server 9.0 Install
Want to run BEA System's WebLogic Server on OS X? The first step is to download the 'generic' version of WebLogic Server (WLS) 9.0. I used the HP-UX 11 version for Itanium processors. The downloaded file is named server900_generic.jar. To install, simply open up Terminal.app and type:
$ java -Dos.name=unix -jar server900_generic.jar
When you press return, the graphical installer will run and install WLS 9.0. Native libraries that provide a performance boost will not be used on Mac OS X, but this will allow the server to be installed and start up. I've posted a (slightly more detailed) write-up on my own blog.

Disclaimer: I work for BEA Systems (Federal), and they do not support WebLogic Server on Mac OS X.

How you can't install BEA WebLogic Server 9.0

There is currently no way to download this "generic" version. I have downloaded the HP version and used "unzip" to extract the contents and it does not contain the jar file referenced in the post. So, this really isn't a "tip".

Unless I am missing something...

Try going to the download site and looking for "all versions" of the WebLogic Server.

Here is a link to the download page: http://commerce.bea.com/showallversions.jsp?family=WLS

Make sure you download WebLogic Server 9.0 for HP-UX (11iV2, Itanium, since I know that is bundled as server900_generic.jar

Hope this helps...

Yes, you do need a login & password. The registration is pretty painless and no sales droids will harass you. :-)
