We are pleased to announce the certification of Oracle WebLogic Server on Kubernetes! As part of this certification, we are releasing a sample on GitHub to create an Oracle WebLogic Server 12.2.1.3 domain image running on Kubernetes. We are also publishing a series of blogs that describe in detail the WebLogic Server configuration and feature support as well as best practices.  A video of a WebLogic Server domain running in Kubernetes can be seen at WebLogic Server on Kubertnetes Video.

Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. It supports a range of container tools, including Docker.  Oracle WebLogic Server configurations running in Docker containers can be deployed and orchestrated on Kubernetes platforms.

The following table identifies versions of Oracle WebLogic Server, JDK, Linux, Kubernetes, Docker, and network fabric that are certified for running WebLogic Server configurations on Kubernetes. Read the complete article here.

Are you a Java server-side developer? Do you work with Java EE, microservices, Spring, or cloud computing? If so, you have many reasons to consider the powerful new features of Java EE 8. HTML5, HTTP/2, JSON-P, Contexts and Dependency Injection (CDI), cloud support, and other cool innovations are reason enough for a big celebration.

I will show you how to use Oracle Cloud, Docker, and GlassFish 5 to run an application using Java EE 8 features. Want to try the new model-view-controller (MVC 1.0) and JAX-RS, or are you curious about the performance of Servlet 4? You can explore all of this today—with confidence.

A Quick Look at Java EE

The Java EE platform has been, for a long time, a standard for enterprise applications. It is a community-driven specification.

Millions of developers around the world use its APIs in their projects. Thousands of companies rely on solutions based on this specification. Dozens of vendors providers applications servers built on its standards. Read the complete article here.

In this blogpost I will share my first experiences monitoring a Fusion Middleware environment with Oracle Management Cloud (OMC). For this test drive I used a WebLogic SOA Domain running on a Virtual Box image on my local machine.

OMC provides several components to monitor systems and infrastructures. I used the component Log Analytics. In order to upload log files from WebLogic Server to OMC an agent must be installed and configured on the target system. OMC defines different agent types with different responsibilities:

Agent Types

A gateway is an agent that acts as a channel between Oracle Management Cloud and data collector or cloud agents. Multiple data collector or cloud agents can communicate with Oracle Management Cloud through a single gateway. Read the complete article here.

In the last days i was searching a way to package my little Spring Boot app as a docker container and deploy that container to the Oracle Container Service Classic (OCSC).

My first idea was to use the Oracle Developer Cloud Service to do that.

My naive first thought was: „Hey two Oracle Cloud Services, that must be an easy task.“ But no, it was not an easy task, involved only some klicks on the console. It can be just easy, when i want to deploy simply the created .war file but docker containers… no.

But what was the problem? Well, the Developer Cloud Service uses Hudson to build the code. So far so god. The problem here is, we have no docker installation an we can´t install it during the build. In the end, building the project is no problem, creating the container is actually impossible. Read the complete article here.

This training module helps you learn how to provision Oracle Database Cloud Service deployments and Oracle Java Cloud Service instances on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

Task-1

Create the networking, storage, and security resources that Database Cloud Service and Java Cloud Service require in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Note: This task is relevant to other Oracle PaaS services as well.

video (4 min.)

tutorial (15 min.)

Task-2

Create a Database Cloud Service deployment in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Note: Java Cloud Service requires a Database Cloud Service deployment to store the Oracle-required schemas for WebLogic Server.

video (4 min.)

Task-3

Create a Java Cloud Service instance in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

video (5 min.)

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.
