HowTo - OWSM 11g: Install OWSM on base Weblogic

If you have a vanilla Weblogic (WLS) environment with no Fusion Middleware components deployed such as SOA Suite, Webcenter, etc., and you have JAX-WS clients and web services deployed in such an enviornment, you can secure these clients and services using OWSM by following this guide for step-by-step instructions on how to set it up. These instructions will be included into official documentation in the near future.

Note that these are just install instructions, with no change or bearance to the licensing model. As of Jun 2010, OWSM is licensed only through SOA Suite, and doesn't come with a standalone license. In short, to secure your clients & services using OWSM on base Weblogic, you would need to acquire SOA Suite license on top of Weblogic license.

Thanks to Amit Gokhru for validating and documenting these instructions.
