As many of you know one of the key features of GlassFish 4.1 was support for Java SE 8. You may be glad to hear that WebLogic 12.1.3 now is also officially certified against Java SE 8. This makes WebLogic one of the earliest major commercially supported Java EE platforms to certify for Java SE 8. Keep in mind, WebLogic 12.1.3 also supports some key Java EE 7 APIs such as WebSocket, JSON-P, JAX-RS 2 and JPA 2.1 (read this excellent Aquarium entry by my colleague Bruno Borges for details).

WebLogic 12.1.3 has also taken advantage of new JDK 8 features such as improved garbage collection, security enhancements and JDBC 4.2.

You can read more details in a well written blog entry by Steve Felts of the WebLogic team.
