I won’t discuss the full list in this blog because there’s more about WebLogic than only (although very important of course!) the JAVA EE 6 specifications.

  • Support for IDE’s. WebLogic already supported JDeveloper, but will come out with the later on. Also suported are Eclipse and NetBeans 7.1 IDE. As said, the JDeveloper and IntelliJIdea IDE will be supported in a later timeframe.
  • New enhanced WebLogic Maven Plug-in See the various new options below in this scheme

As you can see, you can even build a simple domain or control it out of Maven!

  • WebLogic 12c provide upgrades from
    • iAS with automated tooling
    • WebLogic 11g
    • GlassFish redeployment – With a built in GlassFish descriptor recognition for Re-Deployment to WebLogic Server
