Supported WLS versions

The following table specifies the supported WebLogic Server versions, along with the JDK versions, that must be used to run the WDT tool. You must set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to specify a JDK version different from the system default version.

To create a domain with the proper JDK (particularly if the JAVA_HOME is different from the one which will be used by the target domain), set the domain JavaHome attribute in the domain model.

The Encryption Model Tool used to encrypt and decrypt clear-text passwords in the model and variable files, requires WDT to run with a minimum JDK version of 1.8.
