WebLogic Scripting Tool, or WLST, is a command line utility that enables you to fully configure and control WebLogic Server – as much, and more, than you can do through the web-based WebLogic console. You might think of it as the SQL*Plus equivalent for WebLogic but in many respects it’s much more powerful as you have the full Python programming language at your disposal. It allows you to do the simple, but handy, tasks like starting a server and creating data sources, right through to creating clusters and building a complete domain. These commands can then be used to automate WebLogic administration, saving time, ensuing consistency and reducing risk.
