WebLogic 12.2.1 – Redeployment of versioned applications via RESTful Management Services by Dirk Nachbar


With the latest release of Oracle WebLogic Server 12.2.1 came quite a lot of enhancements for the RESTful Management Services. The enhancements are really impressive, you are able to monitor (GET) or to modify (POST) your WebLogic environment in detail with a simple URL call either via Browser or via Command Line Tools like cURL. The response time for such REST calls are really impressive compared to the classical way with WLST scripts 🙂
For more details about RESTful Management Services you may have a look into the Official Oracle Documentation
Within this post, I will show how to deploy a versioned application via a simple REST call over cURL. As base for this example you should have a look on the Oracle Learning Library Example "Oracle WebLogic Server 12c (12.2.1): Configure and Using Production Redeployment". Within this Oracle Learning Library Example you can see the classical way of deploying a versioned application. The below used versioned application is coming from this Oracle Learning Library Example, the versioned applications you can download from the before mentioned URL.
Since Oracle WebLogic Server 12.2.1 you will have a lot more possibilities within the RESTful Management Services, for example: creating Managed Servers, creating Data Sources, modifying WebLogic Server settings, deploying applications and so on.
As preparation I have downloaded the versioned.zip file from the Oracle Learning Library example, transferred it to my server on which my WebLogic Server 12.2.1 is running.
First step unzip the versioned.zip file to any directory of your server, make sure that your Oracle WebLogic Server is up and running and specially that the Managed Server to which you want to deploy the versioned application is up and running.
Second step, I simply created two shell scripts to deploy my 2 versioned applications. Read the complete article here.
