Step 1: What is Domain Template
Domain templates are used to create (or extend weblogic server domains) with preconfigured resources such as JDBC, security realms, external libraries, log4j components. So
when we create new domain we do not need to go to server console and create resources
such as data source, etc. While creating domain by using template we will have those
resources configured already for us.
Step 2: Invoke config_builder.cmd
Go to Start Menu->All programs->Oracle Weblogic -> WebLogic Server 11gR1->Tools>Domain Template Builder (or)
Go to command prompt and Start the Domain Template Builder:
Oracle\Middleware\wlserver_10.3\common\bin\config_builder.cmd
