Certified WebLogic installation template for ODA (2.9) available

The new updated and certified WebLogic installation template (release 2.7) that is in synch with the latest hardware and latest Oracle Database Appliance release (2.9) is now on OTN, available to download.

For several month there have been some gaps in coverage between the ODA releases and the WebLogic wizard-driven installation templates for the Appliance. This is now aligned and the releases will be in sync from now on.

Be aware that sometimes the release numbers will be not the same, usually WebLogic will appear to lag behind. Never mind, it is agreed that the latest WebLogic release will always work with the latest ODA release from now on.
