Oracle WebLogic Server 12.1.2 is available

Good news for Oracle WebLogic Server users! Oracle WebLogic Server 12.1.2 has been made available for download today.  See the press release for more on what is included in the overall Cloud Application Foundation 12c release.  


Oracle WebLogic Server is the #1 application server in the industry, enabling deployment from conventional systems to cloud environments. This means you can choose to deploy the same applications on standard Windows/Unix platforms, on Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud to leverage engineered systems optimizations, or in private or public clouds such as the Oracle Cloud. Oracle WebLogic Server 12.1.2 adds new capabilities that extend its leadership for all of these deployment environments. Here's a brief summary.


First, we've delivered enhancements to make Oracle WebLogic Server 12.1.2 the ideal mission critical cloud platform, with unmatched performance, scalability and availability. New integration features with Oracle Database 12c deliver availability, multi-tenancy and scalability benefits for your on-premise clouds using Oracle's latest database technology. Dynamic cluster support make it easy to create high-availability cluster configurations, and to scale them up or down as performance requirements dictate. Additional optimizations for Exalogic Elastic Cloud Systems deliver new performance benefits - up to 3x performance improvements for JMS applications.   Oracle Coherence 12.1.2 has also been released, with new powerful features that can be leveraged in mission-critical applications.


Second, we've simplified operations by delivering native cloud management - efficient, unified, built-in management capabilities that span the web server, application server and data grid tiers of your cloud infrastructure. Oracle HTTP Server, Oracle WebLogic Server and Oracle Coherence now share a common installation and patching framework for efficient provisioning. The WebLogic Management Framework has been extended to manage Oracle HTTP Server and Managed Coherence Server configurations.  We continue to enhance the manageability of Oracle WebLogic Server itself via management enhancements such as elastic JMS for scaling your JMS deployments.   A new release of Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Release 3 complements and extends these capabilities.


Third, we continue to invest in providing a modern development platform that enables developers to accelerate delivery of innovative applications. Enhancements to our Maven integration with updated plug-ins, POMs and archetypes make it easier to use build Oracle WebLogic Server, Coherence, TopLink, and Fusion Middleware applications with Maven-based repositories and build systems. We've added support for the WebSocket protocol standard for delivery of rich, interactive applications for standard HTML5 and mobile clients. Oracle TopLink Data Services make it easy to generate RESTful interfaces to enterprise data sources and deliver services for rich client applications built with JavaScript or similar technologies.  Updated releases of Oracle JDeveloper, Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse, and Oracle Application Development Framework are available with new features for productive application development.


Taken together, these new capabilities make Oracle WebLogic Server 12.1.2 a compelling platform for developing and deploying your next generation of applications, and upgrading your existing applications. You'll be hearing more about all of the above capabilities during the coming weeks. Some things you can do today:


1) Register for the upcoming Oracle Cloud Application Foundation Webcast to learn more about WebLogic Server 12.1.2 and the new Cloud Application Foundation 12c release.

2) Download Oracle WebLogic Server 12.1.2 from the Oracle Technology Network for free development and evaluation purposes.  Licensed customers should download the software from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud site, which offers different licensing terms.
