Last week, Oracle Product Director Will Lyons announced the long expected release of Oracle WebLogic 14.1.1. All details about this release you can find here and on my blog, so I won't go into details about all the nice new features of it. I'd rather now wanted to test out if this version was ready to run on a Kubernetes platform, and in this case the obvious choice was thee Oracle Kubernetes Engine(OKE), although RedHat OpenShift and Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service could also be one of the options.
The following components belonged to my toolset to build this newest version:
· An Oracle Kubernetes Engine Cluster (already created)
· A client to run this cluster
· The Oracle WebLogic 14.1.1 package
· Oracle WebLogic docker files
· Podman, buildah, skopeo. For this blog I only used podman, other tools I will use later.
· The WebLogic Kubernetes Operator 2.5
· Oracle Container Registry(OCIR). Read the complete article here.
