clip_image001In order to write WebLogic scripts for automation tools such as Ansible (now – October 16, 2015 – acquired by Red Hat), we need to take care of idempotency. Before, we proceed with the scripts, we give a small introduction into the WebLogic Scripting Tool (WLST).

Introducing WLST

To enable JMX clients to control MBean life cycles, WebLogic MBeans contain operations that follow the design pattern for Java bean factory methods: for each child, a parent MBean contains a create<MBEAN_NAME> and a destroy<MBEAN-NAME> operation, where <MBEAN-NAME> is the short name of the MBean’s type (the short name is the MBean’s unqualified type name without the MBean suffix, for example, createCluster). The parent also contains a lookup<MBEAN_NAME> operation. The DomainMBean (or DomainMBean) is an example of a parent bean. To create a cluster, we call createCluster(String name). To see if a cluster already has been created, we use lookupCluster(String name). Instead of using lookup<MBEAN_NAME>, we can also use getPath and getMBean. In this case, we have to understand how WebLogic registers the MBeans, i.e., how the object names are structured. For example, to obtain an instance of the ClusterMBean, we can use

1.       cluster_bean_path = getPath('com.bea:Name=' + application_cluster_name + ',Type=Cluster');
2.       cluster = getMBean(cluster_bean_path);

The WebLogic Scripting Tool (WLST) can be used as the command-line equivalent to the WebLogic Server Administration Console (WLST online) or as the command-line equivalent to the Configuration Wizard (WLST offline). WLST offline has a few restrictions though, one them being: "offline edits are ignored by running servers", so in the following we will be using WLST online.

The Administration Server provides some common access points: Read the complete article here.

clip_image002Oracle WebLogic Server 12.2.1 is now certified to run on Docker containers. As part of this certification, we are releasing Docker files on GitHub to create Oracle WebLogic Server 12.2.1 install images and Oracle WebLogic Server 12.2.1 domain images. These images are built as an extension of existing Oracle Linux images Oracle Linux Images. To help you with this, we have posted Dockerfiles and scripts on GitHub as examples for you to get started.

Docker is a platform that enables users to build, package, ship and run distributed applications. Docker users package up their applications, and any dependent libraries or files, into a Docker image. Docker images are portable artifacts that can be distributed across Linux environments. Images that have been distributed can be used to instantiate containers where applications can run in isolation from other applications running in other containers on the same host operating system.

The table below describes the certification provided for various WebLogic Server versions. You can use these combinations of Oracle WebLogic Server, JDK, Linux and Docker versions when building your Docker images. Read the complete article here.

clip_image002When it was released last October, Weblogic 12.1.3 had already begun supporting some of the key Java EE 7 APIs. Now advocate Reza Rahman has announced that version 12.2.1 of the Oracle application server is fully certified for Java EE 7.

The number of servers compatible with Java EE 7 has just risen to a total of six. The Aquarium Blog has announced that WebLogic 12.2.1 will join IBM WebSphere Application Server Version 8.5.5.6 (Liberty Profile), GlassFish Server Open Source Edition 4.0, TMAX JEUS 8, Wildfly 8.x and Hitachi Cosminexus Application Server v10.0.

According to Oracle’s Java EE compatibility matrix, the following configuration has been tested: Read the complete article here.

Dear WebLogic & Developer Partner Community

Thanks for the huge interest in the Fusion Middleware & PaaS Partner Community Forum 2016! With more than 225 registrations and 180 confirmed attendees the conference is booked out! We are in process to try to get additional budget to host more attendees. In case you want to attend please register online here. We will add all new registration to the waiting list and decide after my holiday beginning of March 2016. For the lucky ones who got a seat feel free to join our Facebook event page here.

The conference always have been booked out. This time it sold out in record time, we opened the registration 100 days in advance and in less than 50 days before the conference there is no seat available. This proofs the interest in Oracle Middleware & PaaS is huge and our community is stronger & more active than ever before! Thanks to all speakers and attendees who will make also the 22nd conference in Valencia a super success!

For all the attendees who will not make it to Valencia we consider to live stream the conference. We consider either to use YouTube streaming or twitter Periscope. We would like to get your feedback please send us a tweet @wlsCommunity and #ofmForum.

WebLogic 12.2.1 continues to gain momentum read the latest post from Java Rock Star Adam Bien. Key feature of the new release is the Multi-Tenant functionality. Make sure you read the WebLogic 12.2.1 Multi-Tenant and Resource Consumption Management with WebLogic Multitenant articles. One of the easiest ways to try WebLogic 12.2.1 is on Docker. The other option is to try Java Cloud Service. Thanks to Lucas Jellema for the great articles part I and part II. We continue to offer free JCS trial accounts for Community members. Thanks to the community for all the excellent WebLogic 12.2.1 articles: UKOUG Application Server & Middleware SIG & FlexDeploy 3.1 & IoT Available

Across EMEA we run PaaS partner workshops for partners, make sure you attend them to get ready for the cloud. A great example it the Mobile Cloud Service 3 Days Workshop which took place in Madrid. Thanks to the community for all the excellent development tool articles: Handling ADF BC 12.2.1 REST Validation in Oracle JET & Push Notification to delete local data & ADF: Filtering parent and child nodes & Automatic ADF Logout on Browser Close with WebSocket & Close the containing parent popup component & Add and delete values in POJO & Edit Use Case for ADF 12.2.1 Dashboard & Consuming a SOAP Web Service & Database Change Notification Listener & DOAG DevCamp

Yes this newsletter is again long – make sure you read it! For a short summery of our key monthly information watch the Fusion Middleware Partner Updates on YouTube.
