The FREE WebLogic starter pack allows you to use the FULL set of WebLogic classes, defined types and custom types provided in the wls_install and the wls_config modules on ten named nodes for three months. This allows you to test the modules in your own environment and see how they help you to take control of your WebLogic configuration.

To use the Oracle software you need a separate license provided by Oracle Inc. Check the Oracle price list to buy a valid license for your system(s). Get the Puppet pack here.

One of the interesting tidbits, somewhat hidden away in Thomas Kurian’s keynote presentation last week at Oracle OpenWorld 2016, is a new member of the Oracle PaaS Cloud Services family called Oracle Functions (or at least that seems to be the working title). Oracle Functions are serverless applications that are run on the Oracle PaaS infrastructure when one of its triggering events has been published.

The next screenshot shows a function as part of a stack. A stack by the way is a collection of components that are managed together – stop, start, scale, patch etc. – somewhat similar to AWS Formations.

A Function is executed when one of its triggers occurs. Here we see a drop down list of the [sources for]trigger types currently supported. Among these are: the new Kafka Event Bus, the API Platform, the Database (DBaaS), the MySQL CS, Cache, WebHooks, events from Management Cloud (APM, Log Analytics) and messages on the Messaging Cloud. More trigger types are expected to be added over time. Read the complete article here.

You can use scripts to facilitate the management of WebLogic Server and reduce the manual tasks you have to do.
Examples of these scripts are scripts to automate start and stop of Admin and Managed Servers of WebLogic Server.

In this post I will provide the scripts I use and you can download them here: scripts.zip

These are the scripts that I use to start WebLogic Server in my Linux VM.
One of them is a Shell script to start Node Manager and AdminServer, and the other is a Python script to start SOA, OSB and BAM Managed Servers.

Shell script: Read the complete article here.

With WebLogic 12.2.x a complete new concept – called partition – was introduced into WebLogic in order to support multitenancy setups and concepts. This new technology can also serve as a solid foundation for cloud services and cloud hosting. A partition is – similar to a filesystem partition – meant to be a well-defined area of WebLogic, with some new and powerful features. Other than the standard J2EE bundling units like EAR, WAR or RAR archives, the partition goes beyond that and allows a bundling of applications (J2EE units) and required resources like JDBC, JMS and more into a single “WebLogic application” based on the partition technology. Partitions can also be exported, migrated and imported as a single unit.
Many real world use-cases can benefit significantly from the new multitenancy technology. This book explains the new WebLogic technologies in detail. In addition to the technology deep-dives, this book discusses many use-cases found daily in our industry and shows the potential benefit of multitenancy technologies for these scenarios.
Key Features:
* Overview and deep-dives into the new WebLogic technologies around multitenancy
* Many examples using WLST scripting in order to automate partition handling
* All scripts and programs can easily be adapted to the reader’s need
* Discussion of a number of real-world uses and how these could benefit from multitenancy
* Focus on architects, decision-makers, administrators and developers
Get the book here at Amazon. For additional WebLogic books please visit the wiki here.

This weekend, while preparing for a demo during Oracle OpenWorld 2016, I found a for me new way of publishing a new [version of an]application to Application Container Cloud: through Storage Cloud. The application archive – zip or tar – can be stored on Storage Cloud and the deployment to ACCS can be performed from Storage Cloud. I am not yet sure if this makes for a better automated workflow. What it does give me for now is an automatic backup of the application archive – it lives on Storage Cloud after having been deployed.

The steps I go through (using CloudBerry as file explorer on top of Storage Cloud – see this article for details):

1. Copy Application Archive to Storage Cloud:

2. Use the Cloud storage path option in the upload dialog, as shown in the figure: Read the complete article here.
