Oracle and NEC Joint White Paper: WebLogic Server Active GridLink for Oracle RAC Testing Scenarios and Results

Oracle and NEC have been jointly invested on verifying and testing the Active GridLink for RAC solution implemented within Oracle WebLogic Server which gives the rich functionality for  Oracle Database Real Application Clusters integration.
The combination of Oracle WebLogic Server Data Source and Connection Pooling solutions and Oracle RAC provides a high-end mission-critical environment offering performance, high scalability and availability features. Load-balancing and Affinity capabilities offersignificant performance improvement for online transaction processing scenarios, as well as improving throughput and total response time. Failover solution gives end-to-end rapid failure detection supporting graceful shutdown for planned and unplanned Oracle RAC node outages.
In this paper, we start with a brief introduction to Oracle RAC and an overview of the Oracle RAC features supported in Oracle WebLogic Server 11g and 12c. We then focus on details of the effort that have been jointly done with Oracle and NEC with all the detailed testing scenarios and testing results, along with the analysis. The background and overview of NEC’s test of Active GridLink for RAC will be covered in details. The technical details about Runtime Connection Load Balancing, Web Session Affinity, Fast Connection Failover, and how to remove and add the additional RAC node with zero-downtime will be discussed with different use cases.

Deploying WebLogic SCA Applications to WebLogic Server 12c

Edwin Biemond uses WebLogic Server 12c and OEPE 12c to create and deploy a sample SCA component on the new product releases.

With the help of the Oracle Enterprise for Eclipse 12.1.1 ( OEPE ) we can build WebLogic SCA application and deploy it on WebLogic 12c. This allows you to write Java applications using POJOs and, through different protocols, expose components as SCA services and access other components via references.

Running RichFaces 4.1.0.Final on WebLogic Server 12c

Markus Eisele shows RichFaces 4.1.0 running on WebLogic Server 12c, using a snippet taken from the RichFaces showcase as the example. Markus comments on the change we've made in the 12c release in how we supply and use the JavaServer Faces API and default implementation.

Unlike with earlier version of WLS (compare my older post) JSF 2.x and JSTL 1.2 have been incorporated directly into the server's classpath. Applications deployed to WebLogic Server can seamlessly make use of JSF 2.x and JSTL 1.2 without requiring developers to deploy and reference separate shared libraries.

EclipseLink MOXy is the JAXB Provider in WebLogic Server 12c

Blaise Doughan, Team lead for the TopLink / EclipseLink JAXB & SDO implementations here at Oracle discuss the EclipseLink MOXy JAXB implementation that is now the default JAXB provider in WebLogic Server 12. He shows an example of using MOXy to create a JAX-WS Web Service.

Since MOXy is the default JAXB provider we can leverage all of its mapping extensions. In this example we will use @XmlPath to do XPath based mapping.

Markus Eisele has yet another blog posting, this time looking at the new feature that enables the easier deployment of GlassFish web applications to WebLogic Server (10.3.6.0 and 12.1.1.0) by reading and reusing configuration settings from the the glassfish-web.xml deployment descriptor.

WebLogic Server 12c - Identifying Versions of Modules, Libraries, Frameworks

Yours truly offers up a quick blog showing the versions and locations of a small selection of the various modules, libraries and frameworks included in WebLogic Server 12c.

One approach to doing this is to use the wls-cat utility to search for a known class from the framework, module or open-source framework you are interested in looking at, and observing where the class is loaded from and the corresponding library version.
