Hot Topics for the OTN Article You're Going to Write - Round 2

If you've been thinking about writing a technical article for OTN, one thing that can dramatically help your chances of getting published is to write an article on an in-demand topic.

In a previous post I shared a list of suggested article topics covering WebLogic specific features and open standards compliance. This time around, here's a list of additional WebLogic article topic suggestions covering development frameworks, IDEs, and testing:

  • Using WebLogic 12c with Eclipse
  • Using WebLogic 12c with NetBeans
  • Exploring the Deployment Options from IDEs
  • Using Spring Batch with WebLogic 12c
  • Using the Jersey Test Framework for Lightweight Testing
  • Using Sonar with WLS for Code Quality Observation
  • How to run Avatar on WebLogic 12c (12.1.3)
  • Configuring SLF4J with WebLogic Server
  • Configuring Log4J with WebLogic Server
  • Configuring Logback with WebLogic Server

If you want to tackle one of these subjects, contact me at bob DOT rhubart AT oracle DOT com, or leave a comment on this post so we can discuss next steps.

Of course, if you have an idea for an article that isn't on this list, no worries. I would still like to hear from you.
