Doing more with the WebLogic Maven Plugin (Robot, Selenium and Sonar too!) by Mark Nelson

The ‘new and improved’ WebLogic Maven Plugin in WebLogic Server 12.1.2 provides a bunch of additional capabilities above and beyond your straight compile/package/deploy operations. In this post I wanted to take you on a journey of some of these additional capabilities and explore how we might use them to automate testing of a project.

We are going to use a somewhat contrived example of a simple web application, so the capabilities we look at are going to probably look like overkill for the project. But they probably make a lot more sense for a larger project, and I am sure you can ‘scale up’ the sample and imagine how things would work.

What we are going to do is take an application, and set it up so that our build process does the following:

    • compile the code

  • run unit tests
  • package it into a WAR
  • install WebLogic Server
  • create a simple domain
  • start the Admin Server
  • deploy the application onto the Admin Server
  • run a set of integration tests against the application
  • stop the Admin Server
  • run quality checks on our application

Maven support in WebLogic & JDeveloper 12.1.2 Edwin Biemond

In the 12.1.2 release of JDeveloper and WebLogic, Oracle really improved the support for Maven as build and provisioning tool. Oracle did this on multiple levels:

  • an Utility to synchronize all the Oracle Middleware jars to a local ( .m2/repository) or a shared repository like nexus or artifactory
  • ojmake maven plugin for just building JDeveloper projects.
  • Updated its Weblogic plugin for deploying artifacts or even creating new WebLogic domains, installing the WebLogic software or running WLST scripts.
  • Coherence plugin for packaging.
  • JDeveloper keeps its application & projects options in sync with the Maven application & projects poms. ( You don't need to lookup all the dependencies jars).

To get started we need to do the following. Read the full article here.
