Make WebLogic Domain Provisioning and Deployment Easy! By Monica Riccelli


The Oracle WebLogic Deploy Tooling (WDT) makes the automation of WebLogic Server domain provisioning and applications deployment easy. Instead of writing WLST scripts that need to be maintained, WDT creates a declarative, metadata model that describes the domain, applications, and the resources used by the applications.  This metadata model makes it easy to provision, deploy, and perform domain lifecycle operations in a repeatable fashion, which makes it perfect for the Continuous Delivery of applications.

The WebLogic Deploy Tooling provides maximum flexibility by supporting a wide range of WebLogic Server versions from 10.3.6 to WDT supports both Windows and UNIX operating systems, and provides the following benefits:

· Introspects a WebLogic domain into a metadata model (JSON or YAML).

· Creates a new WebLogic Server domain using a metadata model and allows version control of the domain configuration.

· Updates the configuration of an existing WebLogic Server domain, deploys applications and resources into the domain.

· Allows runtime alterations to the metadata model (also referred as the model) before applying it.

· Allows the same model to apply to multiple environments by accepting value placeholders provided in a separate property file.

· Passwords can be encrypted directly in the model or property file.

· Supports a sparse model so that the model only needs to describe what is required for the specific operation without describing other artifacts.

· Provides easy validation of the model content and verification that its related artifacts are well-formed.

· Allows automation and continuous delivery of deployments.

· Facilitates Lift and Shift of the domain into other environments, like Docker images and Kubernetes. Read the complete article here.
