Oracle recently released Oracle Weblogic Server 12.1.2. Here we look at some of the new features and enhancements.
Support for new Web App protocols Weblogic
12.1.2 supports HTML 5 and Web Sockets along with new support for
JSON-REST services with two types of input and output formats: XML and
Better Oracle Database 12c support Weblogic
12.1.2 now fully supports Oracle Database 12c including support for the
new database's advanced features such as application continuity and
multi-tenancy. Application continuity allows an application to continue
running even when the database is down. Multi-tenancy allows your
applications to choose which specific tenant databases they can connect
Enhanced support for Maven Updated plug-ins,
POMs and archetypes make it easier to build WebLogic, Coherence,
TopLink, and Fusion Middleware applications with Maven-based
repositories and build systems.

load or performance issues. It includes a set of diagnostic tools that

see if the cluster needs to change in size. With the continued
popularity of cloud-based infrastructure-as-a-service, this sort of
elastic scalability is a natural progression for Oracle.

to target JMS servers and file stores to an entire cluster, rather than
a single managed server instance. This capability promises to simplify

available was to use Weblogic’s service migration features.
Administration for JMS has been streamlined and the new JMS can speed
data rates on Oracle Exalogic by up to three times (according to
