Hi,

We have an existing WebLogic server i'd like to use for LifeRay. Are versions other than WebLogic 10 supported?

Can I use Oracle instead of MySQL?
I have not seen documentation for integrating with Oracle 10g.

thanks,
Rafael Lluis

You can use Oracle, Sql Server, Mysql or some other databases. Liferay is based on hibernate so it's transparent to the database used. Talking about Weblogic, I suppose that latest versions of Liferay do need WebLogic 10 and above (you can check the documentation here (http://www.liferay.com/documentation/liferay-portal/6.1/user-guide/-/ai/lp-6-1-ugen11-installing-liferay-on-weblogic-10-0)

For configuring Liferay against Oracle you will need to create a pool in weblogic and to tell Liferay to use this pool by configuring properly the portal-ext.properties file:

hibernate.dialect=org.hibernate.dialect.Oracle10gDialect #only if you're using Oracle 11
jdbc.default.jndi.name=jdbc/LiferayPool

You can also use a pool connection supported directly from Liferay, not weblogic, but at first I will try with the one that usually comes with WebLogic

Tell us about your advances....
