clip_image002WLDF is a diagnostic framework inside Weblogic, which provides several functionalities to measure, track and monitor a domain at runtime. With WLDF, administrators can set alarms on specific incidents and automatically execute some tasks when certain events are triggered.

One good starting point to learn about WLDF is Radu Dobrinescu’s blog. It provides a compressive tutorial on how to monitor common events in Weblogic. The newest version of Weblogic (12.2.1) has made some changes and improvements to the WLDF Framework with the inclusion of the new smart rules.

Smart rules provide a set of predefined rules that represent the most common monitored events in Weblogic domains. This blog is going to show how to monitor stuck threads and overloaded datasources and send an email if one of these events occurs.

1. Creating a mail session

The first task required is to create a mail session in order to reference it in the WLDF watches. The following steps explain how to define a mail session.

  • In the domain structure go to Services -> Mail Sessions -> New
  • Enter a name, a JNDI name and your user account in Weblogic. In the JavaMail properties enter at least the host and port of the SMTP server and the sending email account, like this:

mail.smtp.port=2525

mail.smtp.from=“soa_admin@example.com“

mail.smtp.host=localhost

  • Press “Next”.
  • Select the server where you want to target this mail session and press “Finish”.

2. Create a Diagnostic Module

A diagnostic module is and administrative unit that contains collected metrics, instrumentations, policies and actions. The following steps show how to define a diagnostic module. Read the complete article here.

clip_image002 The release of WebLogic 12.2.1 has introduced some cool features. One of them: the domain partition exports. Could this feature really reduce all the deployments to just one deployment? Let’s find out!

To fully grasp the idea of just needing one deployment, we need to explain Domain Partitions first. As Oracle states: “A domain partition (partition for short) is an administrative and runtime slice of a WebLogic domain. In many ways you can think of a partition as a WebLogic micro-container.” A Domain Partition can be assigned as micro-containers called Resource Groups. Resource Groups can contain WebLogic components such as applications, libraries, JMS Servers and Data Sources.

Resource Groups and Templates

In previous WebLogic versions you would deploy WebLogic components to the whole domain (global) and have it targeted to servers or clusters. Starting from 12.2.1, you can now also deploy these WebLogic components to specific Resource Groups and Resource Groups Templates. Resource Groups can be used to group every component needed in a business flow to one container.

Using Virtual Targets, Administrators can specify on which servers or clusters the Domain Partition is available. Read the complete article here.

As Oracle ACE Atul Kumar has opened his next  Oracle Fusion Middleware (FMW) Training course (next batch starts on 5th March 2016) I thought We should cover Fusion Middleware 12c new features in this post. Over next few months, We’ll be adding more and more FMW 12c features & Hands-On Exercises related to SOA/OHS 12c in this course.

Oracle release Fusion Middleware 12c (12.2.1) in November 2015 with many exciting new features and updates for products such as the WebLogic Server, SOA , Coherence, Oracle Traffic Director, OHS, Webcenter Suite, etc.

This post will list a summary of the new features with a reference to the complete documentation for WebLogic Server (in subsequent posts, We’ll  be adding new features introduced in other FMW components like SOA, OHS etc)

1. WebLogic Server: Since WebLogic serves as a platform for the entire Fusion Middleware stack, the new features in the application server product are the most important ones for the entire suite.

· Multitenancy Support— The WebLogic domain can now be split between partitions, which are logically associated to a tenant. Tenants can be different companies or departments, basically different users communities. The partitions are administrative parts of the domain as they can contain isolated resources (applications, data sources etc) as well as runtime components as partitions can be started and stopped, thus starting associated applications together with all their dependencies.
