New WebLogic feature: one deployment to rule them all by Maarten Droogendijk


clip_image002 The release of WebLogic 12.2.1 has introduced some cool features. One of them: the domain partition exports. Could this feature really reduce all the deployments to just one deployment? Let’s find out!

To fully grasp the idea of just needing one deployment, we need to explain Domain Partitions first. As Oracle states: “A domain partition (partition for short) is an administrative and runtime slice of a WebLogic domain. In many ways you can think of a partition as a WebLogic micro-container.” A Domain Partition can be assigned as micro-containers called Resource Groups. Resource Groups can contain WebLogic components such as applications, libraries, JMS Servers and Data Sources.

Resource Groups and Templates

In previous WebLogic versions you would deploy WebLogic components to the whole domain (global) and have it targeted to servers or clusters. Starting from 12.2.1, you can now also deploy these WebLogic components to specific Resource Groups and Resource Groups Templates. Resource Groups can be used to group every component needed in a business flow to one container.

Using Virtual Targets, Administrators can specify on which servers or clusters the Domain Partition is available. Read the complete article here.

Fusion Middleware 12c (12.2.1) New Features – WebLogic by Seema Yadav

clip_image002

As Oracle ACE Atul Kumar has opened his next  Oracle Fusion Middleware (FMW) Training course (next batch starts on 5th March 2016) I thought We should cover Fusion Middleware 12c new features in this post. Over next few months, We’ll be adding more and more FMW 12c features & Hands-On Exercises related to SOA/OHS 12c in this course.

Oracle release Fusion Middleware 12c (12.2.1) in November 2015 with many exciting new features and updates for products such as the WebLogic Server, SOA , Coherence, Oracle Traffic Director, OHS, Webcenter Suite, etc.

This post will list a summary of the new features with a reference to the complete documentation for WebLogic Server (in subsequent posts, We’ll  be adding new features introduced in other FMW components like SOA, OHS etc)

1. WebLogic Server: Since WebLogic serves as a platform for the entire Fusion Middleware stack, the new features in the application server product are the most important ones for the entire suite.

· Multitenancy Support— The WebLogic domain can now be split between partitions, which are logically associated to a tenant. Tenants can be different companies or departments, basically different users communities. The partitions are administrative parts of the domain as they can contain isolated resources (applications, data sources etc) as well as runtime components as partitions can be started and stopped, thus starting associated applications together with all their dependencies. Read the complete article here.

Running WebLogic 12.2.1 on Docker by Craig Barr


clip_image001It’s a sign of the times when Oracle mention that the latest version (12.2.1) of their Oracle WebLogic Java EE Application Server was released last week on Docker shortly before it was released as a plain old executable installer.

Image courtesy of http://nalacat.com/

But before you get too excited, let me just say one thing. If you were hoping to run something like this:

docker run -d oracle/weblogic:12.2.1

…and then, voilà! …you might be a tad bit underwhelmed.

Now don’t get me wrong, you can run WebLogic 12.2.1 on Docker containers and it works well, some might say very well. All of the WebLogic Server features are available in the container AND… you’ve got the added portability and flexibility that Docker brings. There is however, dare I say, more hoops to jump through then you’ve come to expect from the Docker experience. Let me explain.

As anyone who is familiar with Docker knows, running a container is as simple as “docker run “. Basically, this one command will search locally for the docker machine image and if not found, it will securely pull it down from the internet. Then, it will start it up in seconds (or less), ready for accepting requests. Simple right?!

The user experience built by Docker around the existing linux container technology is basically one of the many reasons Docker containers are becoming increasingly popular. But more so, if DevOps and Continuous Delivery is about eliminating wasteful activities in order to innovate faster, Docker-based containers is the epitome of this. When it comes to Docker, the value-added time is almost equal to the elapsed-time. An actual realisation of the speed to market promises from the DevOps movement. Read the complete article here.

Coherence 12cR2 Offers Major New Innovations by Craig Blitz

clip_image001We are very happy to announce major new innovations with the release of Oracle Coherence 12.2.1 This release is one of the largest we have done and delivers several major features aimed at both developers and operations that improve developer productivity, support infrastructure consolidation, provide better security, and simplify multi-datacenter solutions. We are also announcing a new licensing option for low-cost deployment of small-to-medium sized deployments.

New Features

Coherence 12.2.1 is packed with major new features and capabilities:

  • The new Persistence feature enables Coherence to be a system-of-record and improves time-to-recovery from planned or unplanned, partial or total, cluster outage. Persistence can be configured to work in an on-line mode persisting changes as they are made to the cluster, or to take a snapshot of a data grid. Local disk configuration maximizes scalability, while network-attached storage maximizes availability.   Both data and metadata (indexes, listeners, expiry, locks, etc.) are stored, and recovery is completely automatic.
  • Federated Caching provides support for Active-Active, Active-Passive, Hub and Spoke, and custom multi-datacenter topologies. Implemented at the lowest level of Coherence, Federated Caching takes advantage of Message Bus, Elastic Data, and our new Persistence feature to improve scalability, durability, latency, and configurability of data replication over prior solutions. 
  • Coherence Multitenancy allows WebLogic Server Multitenant applications to share a cluster across a set of tenants and applications, consolidating infrastructure requirements. Multitenancy provides tenant-specific caches as well as shared caches for hosting reference data.  It is fully integrated with Oracle Traffic Director, WebLogic Server, and the Oracle Database to provide an end-to-end multitenant solution.
  • One of our most exciting new features is the integration we have done with Java 8 to provide Distributed Lambdas and Streams. We now provide the ability to execute Lambdas and Streams remotely, using standard Java 8, distributed across cluster members, without the need to deploy code on cluster servers. This provides the ability to do distributed, parallelized stream-based functional programming.  By reducing the need to deploy classes to servers, we have also greatly simplified application upgrade.
  • New Security Features include the ability to do fine-grained Authorization and Auditing of all cache access and updates.   We have also improved our SSL support. Read the complete article here.

Using Ansible to install WebLogic 12c R2 (12.2.1) and Fusion Middleware Infastructure on Oracle Linux 7.1 by Christos Vezalis

clip_image002Before a couple of days Oracle release WebLogic 12c R2 (12.2.1). There are a lot of cool features like Java EE 7 support and Multitenancy Support for WebLogic domains. Installation of WebLogic server along with ADF runtime (Fusion Middleware Infrastructure) are not hard but requires a lot of parameters to be configured and a significant time when you need to repeat the actions in multiple virtual machines. Also Infrastructure updates are time consuming. Ansible is a great tool that help us automate this things. This article will demonstrate the creation of a WebLogic domain using Ansible. You can download code in my git hub account:

https://github.com/cvezalis/ansible-weblogic-fmw-infra-12c-R2

Fusion Middleware needs a Database repository for storing the required schemas. If you don't have a database already you can use an Ansible playbook i have create to install an Oracle Database 12c automatically. You can download the code here:

https://github.com/cvezalis/oracledb-ansible
You can configure your infrastructure variables in infa-vars.yml
You can test the playbook from the extracted folder using:
vagrant up a virtual machine will be ready in a few minutes with no other interaction. You can access the Enterprise Manager at http://192.168.56.14:7001/em if you use the default settings.

The playbook contains several roles for do the job in a modular way:

Linux-wls Role:

This role install the required libraries on Oracle Linux, disables the Security Enhanced Linux and firewall and configures some kernel parameters required for WebLogic to run smoothly. Read the complete article here.

Master-Detail Pattern Implementation in ADF 12c Alta UI by Andrejus Baranovskis

clip_image002

ADF 12c and Alta UI change the way how we used to implement UI in ADF. Let's take a look into Master-Detail. Before Alta UI usual implementation for Master-Detail would be based on vertical layout with master on the top and details below. Alta UI provides different patterns like left-right, bottom-top for Master-Detail implementation - Oracle Alta UI Patterns. I would recommend to watch a demo from Shay Shmeltzer, he explains how to build left-right Master-Detail - Developing Your First Oracle Alta UI page with Oracle ADF Faces. In my post I'm taking a step further and explaining how to manage Master-Detail relationship between different regions.
Here you can watch a demo of sample application developed for today post: Watch the video here.

Oracle Open World is finished and IMHO it was great! What I particularly enjoyed was that Oracle this year delivered a lot of what was announced last year. The cloud offerings seem to be heading the right way (Oracle uses industry accepted terms now when talking about cloud, concludes to my definitions and delivers across IaaS, PaaS and SaaS). In addition Oracle Fusion Middleware 12.2.1, in particular WebLogic 12.2.1 is out with multi tenancy micro containers, exportable partitions, a brand new REST management interface, new JDK support, new Java EE 7 support, policies, actions and true elasticity.
