WebLogic on Docker by Bruno Borges

clip_image002Docker configurations to facilitate installation, configuration, and environment setup for developers. This project includes dockerfiles and samples for both WebLogic 11g 10.3.6 with JDK 7, as well WebLogic 12c 12.1.3 with JDK 8.

Based on Official Oracle Linux Docker images

For more information please read the Docker Images from Oracle Linux page.

How to build and run

This project offers Dockerfiles for both WebLogic 11g (10.3.6) and WebLogic 12c (12.1.3), and for each version it also provides one Dockerfile for the 'developer' distribution and a second Dockerfile for the 'generic' distribution. To assist in building the images, you can use the buildDockerImage.sh script. See below for instructions and usage.

Building WebLogic Images

First decide which version and distribution you want to use, then download the required packages and drop them in the folder of your distribution version of choice. Then go into the dockerfiles folder and run the buildDockerImage.sh script as root. Go to GitHub here

Docker, Java EE 7, and Maven with WebLogic 12.1.3 by Bruno Borges

WebLogic 12.1.3 was released and with it the support for perhaps the most important Java EE 7 APIs for database-backed Web Applications development. These are the specifications supported in this release:

As you can see above, WebLogic is bundled with the same implementations used by GlassFish 4.0, which gives you a compatible application server if you have already started developing Java EE 7 applications (well, of course limited to these APIs) and now seek for a commercially supported environment.
There are also some improvements in the Apache Maven Plugin, which makes developers' life much easier, allows for much better automated testing (Arquillian!), Continuous Integration and Delivery. IDEs that support Maven-based projects also benefit from this.
Does this makes WebLogic the best Java EE application server to run modern web HTML5/Javascript applications with RESTful and WebSockets services? Wouldn't be fair if I told you yes, now would it? So to give you a nice way to test WebLogic, I created a Dockerfile for you to in order to create a WebLogic domain on your development environment to test it as you wish. Go to the weblogic-docker for the Developer ZIP Distro Dockerfile on the WebLogic Community GitHub repository.

WebLogic in Comparison: RebelLabs Java Servers Report By Bruno Borges

RebelLabs did a great job comparing the main Java servers out there, where some are pure Servlet/JSP containers, others are full Java EE compliant. But they didn't want to include in the list Oracle WebLogic nor IBM WebSphere apparently for no logical reason but "they are suited for large enterprise production environments", and because the report is focused on developers.
See RebelLabs report "The Great Java Application Servers Debate"
So, I decided to write this blog post to include detailed information about WebLogic, since WLS is free for developers, even if you are going to deploy GlassFish/JBoss/Whatever in production. Which is why I didn't get why RebelLabs didn't want to compare WebLogic.

Remember, I will detail WebLogic from a "developer point of view", using the same categories RebelLabs used in their report. Here we go:

Download & Installation

WebLogic 12c is certified for Java EE 6, and 12.1.1 was released on Dec 2011. The second release is 12.1.2 and is from July 2013, part of the full Cloud Application Foundation 12c release. For developers, there is a ZIP distribution sized at 184Mb.
