Resource Consumption Management with WebLogic Multitenant by Rahul Srivastava, Jagadish Ramu, Kshitiz Saxena, Naman Mehta, Sivakumar Thyagarajan, Larry Feigen

clip_image002

What is WebLogic Server Multitenant?

Multi-tenancy (MT) in WebLogic Server (WLS) provides a sharable infrastructure for use by multiple organizations. These organizations are a conceptual grouping of your own choosing, which you can think of as tenants. By allowing one domain to support multiple tenants, WebLogic-MT improves density and achieves a more efficient use of resources.

WebLogic-MT provides resource isolation within a domain partition, an administrative and runtime slice of a WebLogic domain that is dedicated to running application instances and related resources for a tenant. Domain partitions achieve greater density by allowing application instances and related resources to share the domain, WebLogic itself, the Java virtual machine (JVM), and the operating system, while isolating tenant-specific application data, configuration, and runtime traffic. Read more about WebLogic-MT here.

Cargo Tracker Java EE 7 Blue Prints Now Running on WebLogic by Reza Rahman

For those unaware the Cargo Tracker project exists to serve as a blue print for developing decently designed Java EE 7 applications, principally utilizing Domain-Driven Design (DDD). The project has long run on GlassFish 4 and Java SE 7. The project was recently enhanced to run the same code base also on WebLogic 12.2.1 and Java SE 8. The instructions for running the project on WebLogic are available here. Feel free to give it a spin to get a feel for both Java EE 7 and WebLogic 12.2.1.

The fact that a fairly non-trivial project like Cargo Tracker can run on both GlassFish and WebLogic with no code changes and some very minimal configuration differences handled via Maven profiles speaks to how much Java EE portability is a reality with Java EE 7. Some initial work has also been done to run the project on WildFly - hopefully we will be able to highlight that work here soon as well. Read the complete article here.

Coherence Persistence in WebLogic by Nicolas Fonnegra

clip_image002The new release of Coherence (12.2.1) implements several new features that improve and enrich the already existent functionality. One of these new features provides the administrators an interface to generate, persist and archive snapshots of the cache’s content. These snapshots can be recovered at any point in time, giving users the possibility to have several backups of the cache in order to avoid a total loss of the data.

Coherence supports two kinds of persistence: on-demand persistence mode and active persistence mode. On-demand persistence mode is done manually by using the MBeans provided by Coherence. In the active persistence mode, caches are persisted automatically when the content changes and are automatically recovered on cluster/service startup. In this blog entry I am going to describe how to configure an on-demand persistence cache in Weblogic 12.2.1 and how to generate the snapshots using the Coherence JVisualVM plugin.

Configuring the cache

I am going to start with a simple Weblogic domain with two managed server in a cluster, like the one showed in the following picture:

Once the domain is ready, the Coherence cluster can be configured along with the information about the snapshots that are going to be persisted and recovered. The snapshot configuration consists of two main parts: the first one defines the path where the snapshot is going to be stored and it is configured along with the cluster in the operational configuration file (coherence-operational-config.xml). The second part is done in the cache configuration file (Coherence-cache-config) and it tells the cache which persistence configuration it should use. Unfortunately, the path definition cannot be done in the Weblogic administration console. Therefore, we will have to use a coherence-operational-config file to define the Coherence cluster: Read the complete article here.

WLDF Smart Rules in WebLogic by Nicolas Fonnegra

clip_image002WLDF is a diagnostic framework inside Weblogic, which provides several functionalities to measure, track and monitor a domain at runtime. With WLDF, administrators can set alarms on specific incidents and automatically execute some tasks when certain events are triggered.

One good starting point to learn about WLDF is Radu Dobrinescu’s blog. It provides a compressive tutorial on how to monitor common events in Weblogic. The newest version of Weblogic (12.2.1) has made some changes and improvements to the WLDF Framework with the inclusion of the new smart rules.

Smart rules provide a set of predefined rules that represent the most common monitored events in Weblogic domains. This blog is going to show how to monitor stuck threads and overloaded datasources and send an email if one of these events occurs.

1. Creating a mail session

The first task required is to create a mail session in order to reference it in the WLDF watches. The following steps explain how to define a mail session.

  • In the domain structure go to Services -> Mail Sessions -> New
  • Enter a name, a JNDI name and your user account in Weblogic. In the JavaMail properties enter at least the host and port of the SMTP server and the sending email account, like this:

mail.smtp.port=2525

mail.smtp.from=“soa_admin@example.com“

mail.smtp.host=localhost

  • Press “Next”.
  • Select the server where you want to target this mail session and press “Finish”.

2. Create a Diagnostic Module

A diagnostic module is and administrative unit that contains collected metrics, instrumentations, policies and actions. The following steps show how to define a diagnostic module. Read the complete article here.

Mobile and Mobile Cloud Service training part of Summer Camps VI August 29th – September 2nd 2016 Lisbon Portugal

clip_image002

Mobile and Mobile Cloud Service Partner Workshop

Trainers: Grant Ronald & Frank Nimphius & Mireille Duroussaud

Please visit our registration page here

Duration 4 Days
Timing Monday - Thursday, 9:00 am - 5:30 pm (breaks included)

Abstract:
Get up & running extending your Oracle Forms applications to Mobile with Oracle MAX
Join members of the Oracle Mobility PM team for a 4 day workshop that demonstrates how Oracle Forms applications can become part of a mobile application development. Get inspired and discuss with the experts about the options that turn Oracle Forms developers in mobile application developers.
What are we announcing?
Mobile has changed application development faster and more sustainable than anything else before. IT departments face an increasing demand for new mobile applications to be built or the extension of existing applications to mobile. How do you master this challenge if the required skills are not yet yours?
Oracle Forms is a veteran product among Oracle application development tools. Its PL/SQL based and considered rock solid. Over the years however, technology has shifted away from PL/SQL towards Java EE, Java Script, CSS and service orientation, and now mobile and cloud. Though there is no immediate need to move out of Oracle Forms, there is one to join the mobile and cloud movement. But how can you leverage existing skills and Forms applications in mobile on-device applications?
This 4 day workshop teaches a path from Oracle Forms to mobile that enables developers to expose existing Forms application modules to mobile cloud service middleware from where new on-device mobile applications can be built and deployed declaratively with no coding required at all. It also demonstrates how to bridge the skill gap PL/SQL developers usually have when it comes to coding for new non-Oracle Forms technologies.

What is covered in the workshop?
AuraPlayer - A Oracle Forms focused solution that exposed Oracle Forms application functionality for use through the REST service interface. The solution by AuraPlayer makes business logic in Forms available to cloud and mobile, as well as to any other REST aware client technologies. We are aware that there are other options to expose Forms content to the REST interface but chose AuraPlayer for this workshop.
Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS) is a mobile middleware in the cloud (MbaaS) built by Oracle that exposes common mobile functionality as REST services to mobile client developers. A full day is dedicated to Oracle MCS for you to learn about the product, the positioning, custom mobile service development and hands-on knowledge you need for your job.
Oracle Mobile Application Accelerator (MAX) is a new Oracle product that is built-in to Oracle MCS and that you use to develop mobile on-device client applications declaratively. During the workshop you learn about the product and its code-free development principles that aim for citizen developers as well as mobile consultants that need to quickly and declaratively build new mobile applications. As a Forms user you will be delighted to see how MAX bridges the before mentioned skill gap, immediately turning you into a mobile developer wizard.
During the workshop hands-on you'll be using all of the before mentioned products to work on a Oracle Forms to mobile project. With the Oracle Forms application REST exposure, you create an Oracle Mobile Cloud Service backend and custom API that makes the REST interface available to Oracle Mobile Application Accelerator (MAX) for building mobile on device applications declaratively. On the last day of the workshop you are given the chance to "road test" your knowledge and use what you've learned on your own custom
Forms modules.
Why should you attend?
If Oracle Forms and Mobile is in your interest, then you probably have a lot of uncertainties and even more questions you are seeking to get answers for. The workshop is lead by three members from the Oracle product management team. All three are former Oracle Forms product managers, then Oracle ADF product managers and now responsible for Oracle Mobile Cloud Services and related mobility products. In addition technical support and assistance will be provided by AuraPlayer for the Forms to REST transformation. This training is a one-time only chance for you to get on top of mobile application development based on existing Oracle Forms logic and a first show of Oracle MAX in a public training.

WebLogic on Docker Containers Series, Part 3: Creating a Domain Image by Bruno Borges

clip_image002

You already know how to quickly get started with WebLogic on Docker. You also learned with more details how to build an installation Docker image of WebLogic and Oracle JDK. This time, you will learn how to create a WebLogic Domain Image for Docker Containers.

We are pushing some interesting samples of Docker images on GitHub so this way WebLogic customers and users can have a good idea of what is possible (although not everything in there may be officially supported as of this moment, like multihost), but to experiment and learn more about Docker itself. This blog post focuses on the 1221-domain sample, but make sure to subscribe to this blog or follow me on Twitter for future posts that will look into the other samples.

I will also assume that you have the docker-images repository checked out and updated in your computer (with commit 4c36ef9f99c98), and of course you have Docker installed and properly working. Now moving on.

WebLogic Domains

WebLogic uses a Domain concept for its infrastructure. This is the first thing a developer or administrator must create in order to be able to run a WebLogic Server. There are many ways to create a WebLogic Server Domain: using the Configuration Wizard, using WLST, or even bootstrapping the weblogic.Server class. Since we are using Docker and we want to automate everything, we create the domain with WLST. Read the complete article here

Developing a RESTful Node.js and HTML5 application to Oracle Application Container Cloud

clip_image001This tutorial shows you how to create and deploy a Node.js RESTful application to Oracle Application Container Cloud additionally, you create an HTML5 application to test your REST service locally and in the cloud.

Time to Complete
  • Server Development: 30 minutes
  • Client Development: 30 minutes
  • Cloud Deployment: 40 minutes
Background

Oracle Application Container Cloud lets you run Node.js applications in the cloud. Node.js is a lightweight and efficient platform for building and running microservices. Node.js is sometimes referred to simply as Node.

Scenario

For this project, you create a Node.js REST web service and an HTML5 and JavaScript client. These are two separate applications. To keep your files sorted and prevent confusion, you create two different folders and put the files of each application inside:

The completed project, the MessageBoard application, provides a simple forum with topics and comments. Using REST, you provide access to the list of topics in the forum, as well as details of a particular topic. Data is exchanged using JavaScript Object Notation (JSON). Read the tutorial here.
