Developer Recap: Fusion Middleware at OpenWorld 2014 by Jens Eckels

clip_image002Oracle OpenWorld is over, but there's still plenty to consume! Much of the developer attention was focused on JavaOne down the road, but that doesn't mean we forgot about you! Here's a brief recap of the goings-on, some sessions you may have missed, and some useful links. Hopefully, you can take a few minutes and get all caught up

Sessions and Keynotes
Just for you, we had a ton of OOW sessions focused on developing for Fusion Middleware. These didn't just focus on Oracle products, but also how using popular tools and frameworks can help you achieve your goals faster. These sessions focused on everything from mobile development to DevOps, with a specific focus on - you guessed it - cloud. Some useful links:
OpenWorld Keynote and Session Rewinds
JavaOne Keynotes
OpenWorld General Sessions
Yeah, yeah, yeah (you might be heard to say).
Those are all big-picture things that don't affect me on a daily basis (you might think).
You're difficult to please, aren't you? Ok, then. Let us try something else...
If you're still assuming OpenWorld isn't right for you as a developer, check out some of the sessions we completed in 2014, and we can hopefully change your mind for OpenWorld 2015.
   • A Guide to Team Development in the Cloud with Oracle Developer Cloud Service
   • Innovating in the Core: Development with Oracle WebLogic Server 12c
   • Next-Generation Oracle WebLogic Server Provisioning: Puppet, Chef, and More
   • Developing Oracle Fusion Middleware Applications in the Cloud
   • Amplify Service Integration Developer Productivity with Oracle SOA Suite 12c
And of course much more. These five examples are a sampling meant to make you hungry for more.
Kind of like good chips and salsa before your tacos arrive. Read the complete article here.

Booting WebLogic – presentation at Oracle OpenWorld 2014 by Cato Aune

Oracle WebLogic Server instances are the foundation for Java EE applications and Oracle Fusion Middleware, including SOA, BPM, and so on. But even as important as Oracle WebLogic Server instances are for organizations, there are no out-of-the-box scripts for booting Oracle WebLogic Server instances automatically when the server itself boots.
Jon Petter Hjulstad and I will during our presentation at Oracle OpenWorld 2014 (CON3633) discuss why you should have standardized boot scripts, describe the role of Node Manager in booting Oracle WebLogic Server instances, walk through real-life boot scripts, and demonstrate how they really work. There are many example scripts available on the Internet, and many opinions on how to make the best solution. We are trying to have a pragmatic approach, and will show a solution that is as simple as possible, but still working in a production environment. If you want, feel free to extend the solution so it fits your specific requirements.
At the end of this session, you will be able to make your own Oracle WebLogic Server boot script, either from scratch or by customizing the scripts provided as part of the presentation, and deploy them to your own system

OOW 2013 Summary for Fusion Middleware Architects & Administrators by Simon Haslam

OOW 2013 Summary for Fusion Middleware Architects & Administrators by Simon Haslamclip_image001

This September during Oracle OpenWorld 2013 the weather in San Francisco, as you see can from the photo, was exceptionally sunny. The dramatic final few days of the Americas Cup sailing competition, being held every day in the bay, coincided with the conference and meant that there was almost a holiday feel to the whole event.

Here's my annual round-up of what I think was most interesting at OpenWorld 2013 for Fusion Middleware architects and administrators; I hope you find it useful and if you think I've missed something please add a comment!

WebLogic and Cloud Application Foundation (CAF)

The big WebLogic release of the year has already happened a few months ago with 12.1.2 so I won't duplicate that here.

Will Lyons discussed the WebLogic and Coherence roadmap which essentially is that 12.1.3 will probably be released to coincide with SOA 12c next year and that 12.1.4, the next feature-rich WebLogic release, is more likely to be in 2015. This latter release will probably include full Java EE 7 support, have enhancements for multi-tenancy and further auto-scaling features to support increased density (i.e. more WebLogic usage for the same amount of hardware). There's a new Oracle Virtual Assembly Builder (OVAB) out already and an Oracle Traffic Director (OTD) 12c release round the corner too.

Also of relevance to administrators is that Oracle has increased the support lifetime for Fusion Middleware 11g (e.g. WebLogic 10.3.6) so that Premier Support will now run to the end of 2018 and Extended Support until 2021 - this should remove any Oracle-driven pressure to upgrade at least.

Java Mission Control

Java Mission Control (JMC) is the HotSpot Java 7 version of JRockit 6 Mission Control, a very nice performance monitoring tool from Oracle's BEA acquisition. Flight Recorder is a feature built into the JVM which records diagnostic events into, typically, a circular buffer which can then be used for historical analysis, particularly in the case of a JVM crash or hang.

It's been available separately for WebLogic only for perhaps a year now but, more significantly, it now includes JVM events and was bundled in with JDK7 Update 40 a few weeks ago. I attended a couple of interesting Java One sessions on JMC/Flight Recorder and have to say it's looking really good - it has all the previous JRMC features except for memory leak detector, plus some enhancements around operative sets and ECID filtering I think.

Marcus also showed how you could add your own events into flight recorder by building your own event class - they are then available for graphing alongside all the other events in JMC. This uses a currently an unsupported/undocumented API, but it's also the same one that WebLogic uses for WLDF events so I imagine it is stable. I'm not sure quite whether this would be useful to custom applications, as opposed to infrastructure services or ISV packaged applications, but it was a very nice demonstration.

I've been testing JMC / FR enabling on several environments recently and my confidence is growing - it feels robust and I think could very soon be part of my standard builds. Read the full article here.
