• Get application security done the right way! Detect, Protect, Monitor, Accelerate, and more…
  • A few days back I encountered the following error and WebLogic failed to start with BEA-00362 Critical Error

    Are you also having the same error?

    Solution

    This happens when MW_HOME is not defined and weblogic.jar is getting called twice in CLASSPATH.

    To fix this, check below two points.

    • Ensure weblogic.jar in CLASSPATH is not duplicated. You can check CLASSPATH section when it prints while starting.
    • Set MW_HOME either on Unix shell or in startup scripts.
    MW_HOME=/your/path/wls1036/

    Start Oracle WebLogic now, it should work!
