WebLogic 12c released!

New or enhanced WebLogic 12c features

  • JAVA EE 6 support all kinds of JEE6 specifications are implemented like :
    • JSF 2.0,Java Servlets 3.0 JPA 2.0 and EJB 3.1.
    • Managed Beans 1.0

    • Java language optimizations and Internationalization
    • Client and server support
    • SSL/TLS 1.2 in JSSE to support JAVA Socket Transport security
    • Converged Java VM:JRockit and HotSpot are  incorporated with the best features from both.The JVM convergence will be a multi-year process, which was confirmed during my presence at Oracle’s Publisher Seminar 2011 during OOW

I won’t discuss the full list in this blog because there’s more about WebLogic than only (although very important of course!) the JAVA EE 6 specifications.

  • Support for IDE’s. WebLogic already supported JDeveloper, but will come out with the later on. Also suported are Eclipse and NetBeans 7.1 IDE. As said, the JDeveloper and IntelliJIdea IDE will be supported in a later timeframe.
  • New enhanced WebLogic Maven Plug-in See the various new options below in this scheme

As you can see, you can even build a simple domain or control it out of Maven!

  • WebLogic 12c provide upgrades from
    • iAS with automated tooling
    • WebLogic 11g
    • GlassFish redeployment – With a built in GlassFish descriptor recognition for Re-Deployment to WebLogic Server

Only problem is that Weblogic 12c currently does not support JDeveloper & ADF unlike release 11g.

Dear Rade,

thanks for your comment. Yes JDeveloper and ADF are not yet available for WebLogic. Like with Fusion Middleware 11g Oracle rools out the products in phases. Today the Enterprise Pack for Eclipse ( for WebLogic 12c became available: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/eclipse/downloads/oepe-1211-beta-1357594.html
