clip_image002I'm about to embark on a journey that explores the use of WebLogic Server within a DevOps regime.  My first port of call for this journey will be using Chef.
A loose travel itinerary is:

  • Setting up an environment to explore the basic operations of Chef - using the Chef Development Kit (ChefDK)
  • Exploring the basics of how Chef works to install Java and WebLogic Server on a single node
  • Installing and examining some of the existing cookbooks that are available for Java and WebLogic Server
  • Extending the environment to provision multiple nodes to create a typical multiple machine clustered WebLogic Server environment

I've started working on the first task, where I've also explored using Docker to create an isolated, reusable and easily shareable environment that contains the ChefDK.
The Docker project is here on GitHub:

I also tried a quick experiment with using Oracle Linux as the base docker image:

The Dockerfile contains the set of instructions required to install the ChefDK and the necessary utilities into the docker image when it is built. Read the complete article here.
