Retrieving WebLogic Server Name and Port in ADF Application by Red Samurai

It could come handy to know how to get WebLogic server name and port in ADF application. Particularly this could be useful, when running ADF application in the cluster and there is a requirement to track WebLogic node with application session instance running. Usually it is not enough to get server host, as cluster node is accessed through load balancer and server IP is different, not the one visible in HTTP session.

There is a way to get WebLogic server name and port. Server name could be retrieved from system property - weblogic.Name. Port could be retrieved from MBean - see the code below:
Server name and port is retrieved and displayed correctly for my test environment - DefaultServer and 7101 Read the complete article here.

How to use NodeManager to control WebLogic Servers by Zemian Deng

In my previous post, you have seen how we can start a WebLogic admin and multiple managed servers. One downside with that instruction is that those processes will start in foreground and the STDOUT are printed on terminal. If you intended to run these severs as background services, you might want to try the WebLogic node manager wlscontrol.sh tool. I will show you how you can get Node Manager started here.

The easiest way is still to create the domain directory with the admin server running temporary and then create all your servers through the /console application as described in last post. Once you have these created, then you may shut down all these processes and start it with Node Manager.

The first step above is to start and run your Node Manager. It is recommended you run this as full daemon service so even OS reboot can restart itself. But for this demo purpose, you can just run it and send to background. Using the Node Manager we can then start the admin in step 2, and then to start the managed server on step 3.

The NodeManager can start not only just the WebLogic server for you, but it can also monitor them and automatically restart them if they were terminated for any reasons. If you want to shutdown the server manually, you may use this command using Node Manager as well:

Ground Control by David Baum

Oracle MagazineAs cloud computing moves out of the early-adopter phase, organizations are carefully evaluating how to get to the cloud. They are examining standard methods for developing, integrating, deploying, and scaling their cloud applications, and after weighing their choices, they are choosing to develop and deploy cloud applications based on Oracle Cloud Application Foundation, part of Oracle Fusion Middleware.

Oracle WebLogic Server is the flagship software product of Oracle Cloud Application Foundation. Oracle WebLogic Server is optimized to run on Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, the integrated hardware and software platform for the Oracle Cloud Application Foundation family.

Many companies, including Reliance Commercial Finance, are adopting this middleware infrastructure to enable private cloud computing and its convenient, on-demand access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources.

“Cloud computing has become an extremely critical design factor for us,” says Shashi Kumar Ravulapaty, senior vice president and chief technology officer at Reliance Commercial Finance. “It’s one of our main focus areas. Oracle Exalogic, especially in combination with Oracle WebLogic, is a perfect fit for rapidly provisioning capacity in a private cloud infrastructure.”

Reliance Commercial Finance provides loans to tens of thousands of customers throughout India. With more than 1,500 employees accessing the company’s core business applications every day, the company was having trouble processing more than 6,000 daily transactions with its legacy infrastructure, especially at the end of each month when hundreds of concurrent users need to access the company’s loan processing and approval applications.

The Fantastic New WebLogic on Oracle Database Appliance 2.9 Release is Here!

O-box SOA Appliance running multiple environmentsLast week was a big day in virtualised ODA-land as it saw the launch of WebLogic on ODA 2.9. Admittedly it doesn't sound like a very exciting release but it is one that we at O-box have been looking forward to for quite some time.

Let me explain why, then we'll look into the details...

The ODA X4-2 has 48 Intel Xeon cores. That is a lot of compute power. Whilst the largest O-box SOA Appliance single environment configuration can in theory use all those cores (currently with 40 vCPU of SOA!) the vast majority of O-box users will want smaller configurations. Prior to 2.9 the Oracle WebLogic implementation only supported one domain per ODA, so the conundrum O-box development faced last year was either: offer customers only one SOA environment on their O-box for now (but have the benefit of a standard, easily supportable WebLogic installation), or build our own WebLogic/OTD OVM templates from scratch.

One of our driving goals with O-box is to give the best possible experience and make the appliance as supportable as possible. Therefore we took the gamble that we would stick with the Oracle's one-domain WebLogic configuration initially, and just hope that it would deliver multi-domain support for us in a timely manner (note: this is probably not a strategy that business textbooks would recommend!).

Anyway, we've been working closely with Oracle Product Management for a few months now and I'm delighted to see 2.9 as the fruits of their labour. This also neatly ties in with several recent requests for O-box to include OSB as well as SOA/BPEL (which we have always wanted to have in separate domains). The diagram below is the neatest way to summarise what the new 2.9 release will allow us to deliver, i.e. previously only one 3D box was possible: Read the complete article here.

IT-Security (Part 3): WebLogic Server and Java Security Features by Mohammad Esad-Djou

WebLogic Server and Java Security Features [1]  WebLogic Server supports the Java SE and Java EE Security to protect the resources of whole system. The resources could be Web applications, Uniform Resource Locator (URL), Enterprise JavaBeans (EJBs), and Connector components.

Java SE capabilities: Security APIs p3_realm_1Java uses APIs to access security features and functionality and its architecture contains a large set of application programming interfaces (APIs), tools, and implementations of commonly-used security algorithms, and protocols. This delivers the developer a complete security framework for writing applications and enables them to extend the platform with new security mechanisms.[2]

Java Authentication and Authorization Services (JAAS) WebLogic Server uses the Java Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS) classes to consistently and securely authenticate to the client. JAAS is a part of Java SE Security APIs and a set of Java packages that enable services to authenticate and enforce access controls upon users and /or fat-client authentication for applications, applets, Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB), or servlets.

JAAS uses a Pluggable Authentication Module (PAM) framework, and permits the use of new or updated authentication technologies without requiring modifications to the application. Therefore, only developers of custom Authentication providers and developers of remote fat client applications need to be involved with JAAS directly. Users of thin clients or developers of within-container fat client applications do not require the direct use or knowledge of JAAS.

JAAS LoginModules All LoginModules are responsible for authenticating users within the security realm (we are going to discuss about that later) and for populating a subject with the necessary principals (users/groups). LoginModules contains necessary methods for Login Context, Accounts, Credentials, configuration of them, and different ways to exception handling. Each Authentication providers will be configured in a security realm, its LoginModules will store principals within the same subject too. I try to present that with an example: Via WebLogic Server Admin Console: Home >myDomain > Domain Structure click on Security Realms and then create a new realm “Moh_Realm-0” and then click on “OK” Read the complete article here.
