I'm going to start a new project where I'm going to use SpringFramework / Maven / WebLogic as app server, etc. Anyway, I did a little research because this is the first time I'm working with WebLogic server, I realized there is a plugin from oracle to be used in STS in order to deploy an application. Then, I downloaded it and it is working fine.
Next step was try to run the application, and here my troubles begin
The point is: when I deploy the application it is done without any issue. But when I run the app in the browser it fails due to it cannot find the welcome file list at the beginning (my index.jsp), after that it fails because it does not recognize the taglibs entries. This was really weird because I tried it before under tomcat without any problem.
For that reason, in order to be sure I copied the war file manually to WebLogic, it means to user_projects/domains/my_domain/autodeploy, it was detected by WebLogic and it was deployed successfully. And what happened? It works!
I don't know if the Weblogic plugin is looking for an EAR file or something like that, I've tried different ways suggested in order to deploy it from maven but I could not get it works. The examples I tried are complicated and fail in some steps explained so it became a problem for me. I mean, I could not find out the way to solve it. That's why I'm looking for your help.
I hope it helps your understanding.
Thanks in advance,
