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!

With tight budgets organizations throughout the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) see the appeal of the open source model. Open source software (OSS) includes operating systems, applications, and programs in which the source code is published and made available to the public, enabling anyone to copy, modify and redistribute that code without paying royalties or fees. Open source “products” typically evolve through community cooperation among individual programmers as well as very large companies. An open source license permits anybody in the community to study, change and distribute the software for free and for any purpose.
At first glance it might seem that DoD organizations can avoid buying commercial software products simply by starting with open source software and developing their own applications. As this white paper shows, total cost of ownership (TCO) for open source software often exceeds that of commercial software. While minimizing capital expenses by acquiring “free” open source software is appealing, the up-front cost of any software endeavor represents only a small fraction of the total outlay over the lifecycle of ownership and usage. And while cost effectiveness is important, it must be carefully weighed against mission-effectiveness.
This paper seeks to answer two questions:
1. What are the tangible and intangible costs that the government should bear under an open source licensing model?
2. What are the tradeoffs and risks associated with open source licensing models in relation to commercially available software?
Download this whitepaper today to ensure you are considering the various cost drivers of owning and operating an application environment.

New Whitepaper – Cloud Performance, Elasticity and Multitenancy with Oracle WebLogic Server 12c and Oracle Database 12c
By Ayalla Goldschmidt on Jul 29, 2013
One of the exciting focus areas of Oracle WebLogic 12c release 12.1.2 is the deep integration with the recently available Oracle Database 12c.
To hear live about these key integration features, please join our launch event on July 31st
One of the advantages of having the world’s most popular Database and the #1 Application Server under one roof, is the simple rule of 1+1=3, and what do I mean by that?
With our Engineering teams on the Database and Middleware side working hand in hand, Oracle WebLogic Server 11g introduced Active GridLink for Real Application Clusters (RAC). In conjunction with Oracle Database, this powerful software technology simplifies management, increases availability, and ensures fast connection failover, with runtime connection, load balancing and affinity capabilities. Deltek is one of the early adopters of these capabilities. Watch their video
With the release of WebLogic Server 12c (12.1.2), tight integration between Oracle WebLogic Server 12c (12.1.2) and Oracle Database 12c enhances these capabilities with improved availability, better resource sharing, inherent scalability, ease of configuration and automated management facilities in a global cloud environment.
It’s worth noting that Oracle WebLogic Server is the only application server with this degree of integration with Oracle Database 12c.
This white paper, authored by Monica Riccelli and Frances Zhao from the CAF Product Management team, explains how these unique database, clustering, and application server technologies work together to enable higher availability, scalability and performance for your business. It starts by introducing Oracle Active GridLink for RAC with attention to ease of configuration, manageability, and performance. Then describes the impact of Oracle WebLogic server on several leading features of Oracle Database12c such as Multitenant Databases (Pluggable Database), Database Resident Connection Pool, Application Continuity, and Global Data Services.
Please download the whitepaper and let us know your feedback!

WebLogic 12c Distinctive Recipes for software
architects, administrators and developers -- who know
quite a bit about WebLogic, want to know more, but don’t want the
typical ‘recipe book’ full of screenshots. This new book is a collection of best practice in administrating
WebLogic, large-scale deployments, performance-tuning biggest mistakes
and tools, the JVM, using JMX with your own applications, stuck
threads, JDBC myths, effectively detecting memory leaks, Java EE
examples (deployments and NetBeans projects), Oracle Fusion Middleware
(Service Bus, SOA Suite etc.) and WebLogic in the Cloud without the
hype. The book provides insights you won’t find in the manual,
like recommendations, discussions, best practices, deployable projects,
webcast videos and directions on when to use a feature – and when not
to. With all this and more, this book is the perfect complement to
official courses and manuals. Check it out on Amazon.com.

Watch Mike Lehmann, Senior Director of Product Management from Oracle and Oscar Guadilla, Senior Architect from EJIE, Basque Government's IT Company, discuss EJIE's implementation of Oracle WebLogic Server. Hear EJIE's history with Oracle WebLogic Server, how and why they are using it for its web application platform, common services, file services, and intranet and the benefits they are gleaning. In addition, hear how EJIE is using WebLogic JMS for document management common service integration in its Eco-government project.
While you are at it, since you are at our youtube channel (www.youtube.com/oracleweblogic) already, take a look at the various 'how to' videos Jeff West, Steve Button and others from our product management team have published here. Topics such as WebLogic Maven Plugin, TopLink Grid, How to Patch a WebLogic domain and much more are covered. Great way to spend some of your downtime during the holidays! :)
