Steps to use OBIEE JSR168 Portlets in WebLogic Portal

Someone told me they were having trouble getting the OBIEE JSR 168 portlets to run in WLP. Since WebLogic Portal has excellent support for all published portal standards, I figured that the best thing to do is provide illustrated,  step-by-step instructions.

Deploy the JSR168 WAR to the WebLogic Server

Add the JSR168 WAR as a Shared Library to the Application Workspace

Add Library Reference To Weblogic.Xml In The Portal WEB Project

<wls:library-name>sawjsr168portlets</wls:library-name>

</wls:library-ref>

Add <wls:specification-version> and <wls:exact-match> nodes if required.
