Oracle announces Oracle WebLogic Server 12c the latest release of the #1 application server in this very minute. In exactly one hour from now you can attend the online launch, Developer Deep-Dive, December 1, 11:00 a.m. PT ( Register here). Read the complete press release. I am quoted there, too:
"Oracle WebLogic Server 12c is exactly what I have been waiting for. Developing Java EE 6 applications for Oracle W! ebLogic Server has never been easier. Development, deployment, management and productivity have now been taken to the next level, which makes Oracle WebLogic Server 12c, in my opinion, the most reliable Java EE application server ever." said Markus Eisele, a German Software Architect and Consultant.

This evening I watched both Oracle WebLogic Server 12c launch webcasts: the first was an overview session led by Hasan Rizvi (Senior VP for OFM and Java) and the second was a more developer-oriented discussion mainly delivered by Will Lyons (Director of Product Management for WLS). You can download slides and recordings of the webcasts by clicking the Oracle link on the image, and the Q&A responses are supposed to be published soon too.
This post is a summary of the key points from both sessions combined, with my usual bias towards middleware architects and production administrators (rather than developers). Note it includes slides from the presentations which are now publicly available, but were prefaced with Oracle’s standard "Safe Habour" statement which means you should not make any decisions based on them until 12c is actually available (expected to be around next Thursday by the way).
UK readers please note that Will Lyons, one of the launch event speakers, will be giving Oracle’s first public, in-person WebLogic Server 12c presentation in his keynote this Monday at 10am at the UKOUG 2011 Conference!

At December the 1st, 2011, Oracle announced it’s new major release, the 12c release. As Oracle added the i (internet) at its 8 release, the g(gridcomputing) at its 10 release, now the focus will be on the c(cloudcomputing).
Many new features come out of the fact that Oracle has made its key application server ready for the cloud, that is, ready for to run on enigineered systems, in fact its own Exalogic machine, Oracle’s solution for implementing the cloud.
So let’s take a look what this new release brings us, in this blogpost. There are several new features available in the 12c
New or enhanced WebLogic 12c features
- JAVA EE 6 support all kinds of JEE6 specifications are implemented like :
- JSF 2.0,Java Servlets 3.0 JPA 2.0 and EJB 3.1.
- Managed Beans 1.0
- WebLogic 12c also supports supports Java SE 7 (and Java SE 6).
- Java language optimizations and Internationalization
- Client and server support
- SSL/TLS 1.2 in JSSE to support JAVA Socket Transport security
- Converged Java VM:JRockit and HotSpot are inc orporated with the best features from both.The JVM convergence will be a multi-year process, which was confirmed during my presence at Oracle’s Publisher Seminar 2011 during OOW
