Since I work with WebLogic, 18 years now already, every year a new road-map appears about the new and coming features of Oracle WebLogic and this is presented during Oracle OpenWorld. While everybody is at this moment already back to business as usual, I’d like to give an overview of the already existing and new coming features discussed last year in San Francisco.

Everything is "Serverless" – " No SQL" -"Low Code" – "SOA is dead", "Micro-everything and death to the Monolith!"

Of course these terms does not fully represent what they appear to at first sight, but still, when you’re from the "old school server/ sys admin" I can understand it sometimes is dazzling and sometimes hard to put them all together.  But when you look down deeper, you will discover the relationships between these terms and more in specific what they mean.

WebLogic Server "Current" and "Next"

Nowadays, we don’t only speak of WebLogic Server anymore but also about the Java Cloud Service, which is WebLogic as PaaS. In this post I will give my view of the new and coming features.

WebLogic Server will still exists as the key Java Application Server from Oracle, however it will be the " next generation " application server where old and new concepts go hand in hand. Especially the move to the cloud which is already happening for a few years will be more and more emphasized by Oracle. How ever, either speaking of WebLogic Server of Java Cloud Service, the features are pretty much the same so I will speak of WebLogic Server, it will also mean it’s Java Cloud Service.

Current WebLogic Server versions

Generally speaking, current most important and used version are:

10.3.6 ( 11gR1 including all patchlevels ) which came out in 2009

12.1.3 (12cR1 including all patchlevels) which came out in 2011

12.2 (12cR2 including all patchlevels) which came out in 2015

12.2 made an important step to continuous availibility and multitenancy:

Multidatacenter availability with Oracle Traffic Director and Coherence and automated failover with SiteGuard. Read the complete article here.

Let’s take a look at how to deploy a Python app to Oracle’s Application Container Cloud Service by way of an example!

ACCS provides a pre-configured platform (Platform as a Service) where you can quickly deploy and host your applications. For many of today’s applications, the hosting server is just that, a place to host the application. Most of the time the only thing an application needs from the server is to have it support the application’s programming language and to provide in and out connections through ports. Using a PAAS such as ACCS frees you from all of the extra work of configuring and maintaining a server and allows you to focus on perfecting your application.

ACCS supports multiple languages but for this post, I’ll focus on Python.

DinoDate

For the examples, I will be deploying the DinoDate application. DinoDate was written as an open source learning application that can be used to demonstrate database concepts with multiple programming languages. It currently has both Python and NodeJS mid-tier applications and is backed by an Oracle Database.

The following instructions show how to deploy the Python version of DinoDate to an Oracle ACCS instance. Read the complete article here.

One of our main objectives with the Fn Project is to have a very easy and elegant user experience. From your first touch with our quickstart to building and deploying complex applications, we want to make the experience drop dead simple. Deploying a single function has always been easy — fn deploy — and now you can deploy an app consisting of any number of functions almost as easily.

First, make an app.yaml file and put it in the root directory of your application, eg:

name: myawesomeapp

You should organize your Fn application code in a directory structure that matches your endpoints, for example: Read the complete article here.
