The Oracle WebLogic Server, version 10.3:
WebLogic is of course a commercial tool, and it is assumed that students and/or training companies using Capstone courseware for WebLogic either have appropriate licenses to use WebLogic or are legally using evaluation software in the classroom. Evaluation copies are available from Oracle through the following address; please carefully read and understand Oracle's license agreement before download and install.
Two simple tests of your installation are as follows:
Crimson text editor, version 3.70:
Note: This is a softer requirement than most of our tool setup requirements. In most of our courses, students do not by default have any integrated development environment at their disposal. We find that while students can be productive with just a basic text editor such as Windows Notepad, they find it far more rewarding to work with a more sophisticated editor — at least to have simple features such as auto-indent, multiple documents open at once, tab-width control, etc.
There are many good options here, and if the students or instructor have a preferred tool we encourage them to use it. As a default, we recommend the Crimson text editor: it is freeware, a quick download and easy setup, and performs well for basic text editing, programming, or XML editing tasks.
We provide a few simple custom configuration files for Crimson, and these are referenced in other setup documents. If you choose a different text editor or IDE, you will need to duplicate these configurations for that tool.
Installing Lab Software
An optional package of Workshop 10.3 workspace and projects is also available for the course. This can be downloaded from the following location:
We offer this package intending to simplify the life of the instructor who wishes to use Workshop 10.3 in his or her classroom. Use of an IDE is not part of the standard course delivery; there are small ways in which use of Workshop 10.3 will conflict with the use documented in the printed student guide. The instructor will need to be familiar with both the core software for the course and the IDE itself in order to guide students through its use, and will very likely want to customize the workspace we provide. See Using Capstone's IDE Overlays for specifics.
Install by running the self-extractor(s) found in this archive; unless you installed the above lab images to a non-standard path, be sure to stick with the default target directory c:\Capstone. See the instructor's guide for details on how the overlay works. Please consult the instructor with any questions on use of Workshop 10.3 in the classroom.
