REST interface to manage WLS

this works like magic:

curl -s -v --user weblogic:weblogic0 -H X-Requested-By:MyClient -H Accept:application/json -H Content-Type:application/json -d "{timeout: 10, ignoreSessions: true }" -X POST http://localhost:7001/management/wls/latest/servers/id/AdminServer/shutdown

Problem comes when you have only HTTPS, and even worse with 2 way SSL. Then you are screwed - pardon my french - because curl stupidly uses only pem certificates, so if you have p12 you must convert the p12 into 2 separate files, certificate and private key :

openssl pkcs12 -in mycert.p12 -out file.key.pem -nocerts -nodes
openssl pkcs12 -in mycert.p12 -out file.crt.pem -clcerts -nokeys
curl -E ./file.crt.pem --key ./file.key.pem https://myservice.com/service?wsdl

CORRECTION: it seems that CURL does support now p12 certs: curl --cert-type P12 ...https://curl.haxx.se/docs/manpage.html BUT only if you use the Apple Library "Secure Support" or something like that, not if you use NSS or OpenSSL libraries (do "curl -V" to find out)

See more here https://docs.oracle.com/middleware/1221/wls/WLRUR/using.htm#WLRUR180

return all servers:

curl -s --user weblogic:weblogic0 http://localhost:7001/management/weblogic/latest/edit/servers
