News: Is Oracle's WebLogic 12 really all about the cloud?

  1. In the first salvo of signifiance coverage that you'll be seeing from TheServerSide and the TechTarget family of sites on the topic of Oracle's WebLogic, ITKnoweldgeExchange has delivered a piece on what the key part of this new version 12c release is all about: The Cloud.

    For Java developers, what warms our hearts the most about this release is that it's Java EE 6 certified and ready. But from a promotional standpoint, you can tell that the thing that Oracle is most excited about is the extended Cloud support that is nested inside of their new application server. The much touted "Traffic Director", built on top of WebLogic, Coherence and Tuxedo offerings, make up the basis of Oracle's Cloud Application Foundry; an approach that Oracle hopes will put them ahead of their competitors who are also competing with cloud based offerings.

  2. Cloud ?[ Go to top ]

    Using weblogic for 10 years , still think 8.1 was best in that time . smaller and everything straightforward . Anyway JMS server was the weakest part of weblogic , never see much improvement  including this release. don't think weblogic can be  stateless server service , there is so much persistence thing in backend file store and if it going to move to database store , it gonna to be another nightmare.

    Hi "k y" -

    Using weblogic for 10 years , still think 8.1 was best in that time . smaller and everything straightforward . Anyway JMS server was the weakest part of weblogic , never see much improvement  including this release.

    WebLogic JMS has been updated significantly, and there are further improvements in the WebLogic 12c release (and more coming!)

    While we do not sell the JMS separately as a messaging product, there are quite a few customers that buy WebLogic just for the messaging, because it is rock solid, very good perfoming, and supports a great number of features that are nicely integrated both with the application server and its management infrastructure, and with various other messaging systems and standards.

  5. Looks like the Java EE 6 compatibility page is filling up nicely :-).

    Hi Reza -

    Looks like the Java EE 6 compatibility page is filling up nicely :-).

    Yes, indeed! Java EE 6 has had the fastest adoption ever of a Java EE release.

    Now, let's get that Java EE 7 platform release done!

  7. REST management API included[ Go to top ]

    Its good to see that Oracle is embracing the REST approach. in 12c they have included a REST API for performing read-only functions. I found an Android app on Google Play that takes advantage of this API.  Check out https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.kaptkaos.wlsadmin&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwyLDEsIm9yZy5rYXB0a2Fvcy53bHNhZG1pbiJd
