WebLogic Weekly for October 3rd, 2011
By Steve Button on Oct 03, 2011
Rehashing last week's entry which listed a set of key WebLogic Server sessions to attend at OOW and JavaOne 2011: Showcasing the #1 App Server, WebLogic, at this year's OpenWorld and JavaOne by Ruma Sanyal
Ravish from Middleware Magic provides an example of a WLST script that automatically issues an email alert when a Stuck Thread is detected on a WebLogic Server instance with: Sending Email Alert For Stuck Threads With Thread Dumps. The script generates and attaches a thread dump to the email for analysis.
Over at AMIS, Michel Schildmeijer blogged a short while back about how to add line editing functionality to the WLST scripting shell. If you spend time working in the WLST scripting shell, this is a very handy tip indeed. Very handy for the Derby IJ shell too I suspect ...
Michael has been busy, with another blog entry showing how to Extend the WLDF Console using an example of observing the CPU time metric of a system running a heavy load for testing.
The NetBeans team have just announced the availability of the NetBeans 7.1 Beta release with some additional support for WebLogic Server. They have a small tutorial on their Wiki of the new MDB/JMS support in action.
James Bayer has a very helpful blog stepping through how to set up a simple environment with a WebLogic Server cluster using Coherence*Web to handle HTTP session replication, along with some troubleshooting tips and pointers along the way. We'll certainly excuse you for the formatting James, this is knowledge worth sharing even in crayon!
Finally for this week, Oracle announced a world record SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark result of 40,104.86 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS using WebLogic Server 10.3.5 and the new SPARC T4-4 servers.
