You wanted to enable Mercury Diagnostics on a OC4J standalone.
For this, you needed to configure the agent at start up of the container.

set JVMARGS=-javaagent:C:/MercuryDiagnostics/JAVAProbe/lib/probeagent.jar -Dclass.load.log.level=all
-Dclass.load.trace=all -Dclass.load.log.file=c:/temp/test.log

The following errors are signaled during start up:
