According to Wikipedia the first Weblogic version was released in November 1997 by the name of „WebLogic Tengah“ (happy 20th Birthday mate !!!). With so much history behind, it is difficult to elaborate a list with only 5 not so popular features. But since the first article was getting pretty big and you readers don’t like to scroll much, here is a list of 5 more Weblogic features your probably didn’t know.
Number 5: The Weblogic Session Cookies
What is it about ?
Let’s start with an easy one. With this feature you can define how Weblogic stores the admin console session cookies in the browser.
When to use it ?
Have you ever had to work with two or more Weblogic admin consoles in the same browser? In those cases you will experience how your session gets immediately invalidated the moment you switch between consoles. The reason behind this phenomenon is that Weblogic stores the session cookies with the same name. Use this feature to change the name and you will be able to work with multiple admin consoles in the same browser.
How to use it?
Configure a different cookie name for each of your domains. To do this simple go to administration console -> domain -> general -> advanced and change the ‚console cookie name‘. Read the complete article here.
