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?
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.
Start Oracle WebLogic now, it should work!
