The WebLogic Diagnostic Framework (WLDF) is a powerful feature that has been around since WebLogic 9. It is an extremely robust way of live monitoring and diagnostics for the server, the underlying JVM, deployed applications and configured resources. Few if any other Java application servers can match the capabilities offered by WLDF. If you using WebLogic in production and don't know about WLDF, you are doing yourself a serious disservice.
Because of the power and flexibility offered by WLDF, it is not trivial to pick up and for some can be daunting. Fortunately Mike Croft of Oracle partner C2B2 consulting can help us out. He wrote up a very nice series of blog entries as a gentle introduction to WLDF. He provides a high level overview and discusses watches, notifications and the monitoring dashboard. The definitive way to learn about WLDF is of course always the latest WebLogic documentation :-).
