Here is another great YouTube video by our product manager Monica Riccelli. She talks about installers now being standardized in Oracle for greater consistency -- no more WebLogic native installers. Also, JDK is no longer a part of the WebLogic install. The various installers she discusses include OUI, ZIP, OEPE, Coherence and more. Monica then takes us through a step by step install process.
After the install process is complete the video takes us through the configuration wizard. The ZIP installer is then discussed and its effectiveness, such as it being the smallest downloadable option, easy, and very popular with our customers and limitations (such as for development only and not to be used in production) highlighted. Monica then takes us through the configuration wizard, its usage, and when to use WLST scripts. The video then discusses NodeManager and its usage and discusses how to reconfigure a WebLogic domain on upgrade – through our GUI tools or through command line interface. Lastly, it highlights Opatch – a patch application tool used by our customers and standardized across all Oracle products. Really detailed video. Check it out!

This day, with content tailored for developers, will guide you through tooling updates and best practices around creating applications with WebLogic and Coherence as target platforms. We'll also explore advances in how you can manage your build, deploy and ongoing management processes to streamline your application's life cycle. And of course, we'll conclude with some hands-on labs that ensure this isn't all a bunch of made-up stuff - get your hands dirty in the code!
November 5, 2013
9am PT/12pm ET
We're offering two tracks for your attendance, though of course you're free to attend any session you wish. The first will be for pure developers with sessions around developing for WebLogic with HTML5, processing live events with Coherence, and looking at development tooling. The second is for developers who are involved in the building and management processes as part of the application life cycle. These sessions focus on using Maven for builds, using Chef and Puppet for configuration and more.
We look forward to seeing you there - don't forget to invite a friend!
