Oracle Weblogic WLST console helper!!!

Every Weblogic administrator or WLST developer get’s at some point, close by a psychopathic brain state when using the WLST console. backspaces, arrows and other stuff work like an old school unix server.
The solution: Jline:

To use JLIne with WLST, follow these steps.

  1. Download JLine from http://jline.sourceforge.net/downloads.html
  2. Unzip the file and put the jline jar (current version is jline-0.9.94.jar) into a directory on your machine.
  3. Add the jline jar (current version is jline-0.9.94.jar) to the CLASSPATH
  4. Run JLine as follows:
    java jline.ConsoleRunner weblogic.WLST
    Alternatively, you can copy the $WL_HOME/common/bin/wlst.sh and then add jline.ConsoleRunner before weblogic.WLST

    this actually doesn’t work for me, the backspace and delete buttons no longer function when I run wlst within jline.ConsoleRunner. This may not be a jline issue though since without jline they only output garbage characters.
