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.

JavaOne Afterglow by Simon Ritter

Last week was the eighteenth JavaOne conference and I thought it would be a good idea to write up my thoughts about how things went.
Firstly thanks to Yoshio Terada for the photos, I didn't bother bringing a camera with me so it's good to have some pictures to add to the words.
Things kicked off full-throttle on Sunday.  We had the Java Champions and JUG leaders breakfast, which was a great way to meet up with a lot of familiar faces and start talking all things Java.  At midday the show really started with the Strategy and Technical Keynotes.  This was always going to be tougher job than some years because there was no big shiny ball to reveal to the audience.  With the Java EE 7 spec being finalised a few months ago and Java SE 8, Java ME 8 and JDK8 not due until the start of next year there was not going to be any big announcement.  I thought both keynotes worked really well each focusing on the things most important to Java developers:

Strategy

One of the things that is becoming more and more prominent in many companies marketing is the Internet of Things (IoT).  We've moved from the conventional desktop/laptop environment to much more mobile connected computing with smart phones and tablets.  The next wave of the internet is not just billions of people connected, but 10s or 100s of billions of devices connected to the network, all generating data and providing much more precise control of almost any process you can imagine.  This ties into the ideas of Big Data and Cloud Computing, but implementation is certainly not without its challenges.  As Peter Utzschneider explained it's about three Vs: Volume, Velocity and Value.  All these devices will create huge volumes of data at very high speed; to avoid being overloaded these devices will need some sort of processing capabilities that can filter the useful data from the redundant.  The raw data then needs to be turned into useful information that has value.  To make this happen will require applications on devices, at gateways and on the back-end servers, all very tightly integrated.  This is where Java plays a pivotal role, write once, run everywhere becomes essential, having nine million developers fluent in the language makes it the defacto lingua franca of IoT.  There will be lots more information on how this will become a reality, so watch this space.

Technical

How do we make the IoT a reality, technically?  Using the game of chess Mark Reinhold, with the help of people like John Ceccarelli, Jasper Potts and Richard Bair, showed what you could do.  Using Java EE on the back end, Java SE and JavaFX on the desktop and Java ME Embedded and JavaFX on devices they showed a complete end-to-end demo. This was really impressive, using 3D features from JavaFX 8 (that's included with JDK8) to make a 3D animated Duke chess board.  Jasper also unveiled the "DukePad" a home made tablet using a Raspberry Pi, touch screen and accelerometer. Although the Raspberry Pi doesn't have earth shattering CPU performance (about the same level as a mid 1990s Pentium), it does have really quite good GPU performance so the GUI works really well.  The plans are all open sourced and available here.  One small, but very significant announcement was that Java SE will now be included with the NOOB and Raspbian Linux distros provided by the Raspberry Pi foundation (these can be found here).  No more hassle having to download and install the JDK after you've flashed your SD card OS image.  The finale was the Raspberry Pi powered chess playing robot.  Really very, very cool.  I talked to Jasper about this and he told me each of the chess pieces had been 3D printed and then he had to use acetone to give them a glossy finish (not sure what his wife thought of him spending hours in the kitchen in a gas mask!)  The way the robot arm worked was very impressive as it did not have any positioning data (like a potentiometer connected to each motor), but relied purely on carefully calibrated timings to get the arm to the right place.  Having done things like this myself in the past I know how easy it is to find a small error gets magnified into very big mistakes.
Here's some pictures from the keynote:

Nice clear perspex case so you can see the innards.

Virtualised Oracle Database Appliance POC – #4 WebLogic… We have lift-off! By Simon Haslam

To readers who have been following my ODA posts this one will come as a bit of a surprise, given that my last post (#3) was about physical networking: I now have Oracle Traffic Director and a 4 node WebLogic cluster up and running! Note: this work was actually done about 3 weeks ago but I have only just found time to write about it.Simon's hand searching for buttons to press on the ODA X3-2

What's happening is that my customer's DBAs have been beavering away on Dom1 (aka "ODA Base") creating a RAC database and importing data, whereas I am focussed on WebLogic. Therefore once Dom1 was running we've been able to work in parallel. There are actually some really interesting aspects about running databases on the virtualised ODA too, but to be honest I was too excited by this WebLogic stuff to blog in a more logical order!

Deploying WebLogic to Your ODA

So, once you have your ODA installed, booting from the virtual image, ODA Base loaded and configured, you're ready to install WebLogic. To do this firstly you need to  scp the special "WebLogic for ODA" VM template to both hosts - currently you can choose either 11g (10.3.6) or 12c (12.1.1) - and, if you're going to run Oracle Traffic Director (OTD), the special OTD template (11.1.1.7) too.You also need to scp and extract the clumsily-named "Oracle WebLogic Server Configuration for ODA Utility" (wls_configurator_...tar.gz) onto ODA Base (apparently this should be on Node 0, presumably because it does operations on the second node and assumes that will be Node 1). The next step is to log into ODA Base, set the DISPLAY to point to an X server on your desktop, and run up this WLS Config Utility (as I'll call it). Note you can actually pre-create the configuration elsewhere but you still end up running the utility interactively anyway as far as I could tell (albeit the pre-created configuration file would pre-fill fields).

WebLogic Server Configuration for Oracle Database Appliance - WebLogic Domain InformationAs Frances Zhao points out on the official WebLogic blog, there aren't many forms to fill in for the WLS Config Utility. As this was a Proof of Concept I had asked for a block of generic DNS names/IP addresses to play with. I wanted to build a 4 node WLS cluster (this is what the customer has at the moment for their main application) so I actually needed 9 IP addresses (3 for OTD, 1 for the application VIP, 1 for the admin server and 4 for managed servers). Following from the Welcome screen (which allows you to load a previously created configuration file) you start entering details of your required environment: Read the full article here.

Virtualised Oracle Database Appliance POC – #3 Physical Networking by Simon Haslam

The Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) is one of Oracle's "Engineered Systems" - an implication of which is that you can't change the hardware components at all. Therefore it is important that its specification provided meets your requirements, and will do so for the expected lifespan of the system.

I briefly described the networking for ODA X3-2 in an earlier earlier post. In this one I will discuss the ODA's physical networking in more detail, how you configure it, and its suitability for my customer in this particular Proof of Concept (POC).

ODA X3-2 Physical Networking

Each of the servers in the ODA X3-2 has the following ethernet connections:

  • 4 on-board 10GbE (10Gbase-T copper) ports - for connection to your own networks
  • a dual port PCI card (10Gbase-T copper) - for the internal connection between virtual machines (e.g. RAC interconnect, WebLogic administration channel)
  • a Fast Ethernet (100base-T) port for the ILOM management controller

These are configured within the ODA (virtualised ODA 2.6.0 image) as shown in the diagram below (which is taken from p14 of the Oracle X3-2 and X3-2L System Architecture white paper but with my own annotations added): Read the full article here.

Virtualised Oracle Database Appliance POC – #2 Unboxing & Connecting Up by Simon Haslam (in Hardware)

Oracle Database Appliance X3-2 comes in 3 large boxesWell, just like all the best blog posts about new mobile phone models, today I bring you "Oracle Database Appliance X3-2 unboxing!" Whilst technically this may not be the most interesting article in my ODA POC series, we'll see what subtleties we can tease out from just what's on the outside.

On the right you will see the ODA packaging or, more precisely, the 3 separate boxes the it arrives in. In case you needed any further convincing following my previous posts, the X3-2 is two servers and one (or two) array(s) loosely connected together, not a kind of 2 node blade system like the ODA v1.

Looking on the bright side, at least no individual box is all that heavy - compare this to something like an HP blade enclosure which is 10U tall and certainly not a one person job to install in a rack without a fancy fork lift. Read the full article here.

Virtualised Oracle Database Appliance Proof of Concept – #1 Planning by Simon Haslam

Next week I start working with a customer on a Proof of Concept (POC) on the Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) and they have kindly given me permission to share the (non-confidential) findings on my blog. I have been following the Virtualised ODA pretty closely since last autumn, particularly with regards to running WebLogic and other Oracle Fusion Middleware products on it, so this promises to be pretty interesting.

ODAMy responsibility on the POC is for the WebLogic and Fusion Middleware side, so I probably would not be spending much time on the initial provisioning or how RAC runs on the ODA Base VMs. However, as part of planning my work, I've been thinking about the aspects of WebLogic on ODA we need to understand more about:

· Connectivity: the public network on the ODA is provided via 4 onboard 10Gbase-T (copper) ports (as compared to the ODA 1 which had PCI cards with SFP+ slots). This is fine for connecting into our public network as that's 1GbE, but we have an additional 10GbE network for storage (see below) which is uses active Twinax cables with built-in SFP+ so have had to get hold of a 10GBase-T switch module. This has been more of a problem for those, such as @fuadar, only using fibre for their 10GbE network since there's no obvious upgrade option for an ODA to provide SFP+.

· Installation/configuration: we know that the WLS ODA "Configurator" can build a single cluster domain with various resources but how much can that be changed afterwards? Our current build system is already highly automated - scripted product installations, patches, domain creation, security configuration and so on. Maybe this is atypical for Oracle's target market for the "WLS on ODA", but using the ODA WLS configuration tool will mean work to our existing deployment approach. The trick will be not to break Oracle's "one button patching", though I'm not sure how much investigation of this is possible given that I don't think there are any WLS patches yet.

· Real-world application considerations: Whilst we have a custom Java EE application running on WebLogic, the production virtual machines also run Oracle HTTP Server (OHS), Identity Management, Oracle Reports plus some other bits and bobs. It will be interesting to see whether it's better for us to use a provisioned VM template approach, or just have a standard VM (maybe even kick-started) and then install into them as we do now (the latter will be the easiest).

· Load balancing: currently we have a single OHS VM and use VMware to protect it (nice and simple). I would like to see how easy it is to replace the web tier for a real application by Oracle Traffic Director and whether it justifies the WL Suite licences it will use up.

· Storage: the local storage provided to the VMs, carved from the mirrored 600GB 10k SAS-2 disk pair in each server, seems to me to be virtualised ODA's biggest weakness. Even though middle tiers are, in theory, light on I/O, in practice applications often put more stress on their storage than you expect, whether that's due to excessive logging, for transactions or in this case, PDF output reports. Fortunately Oracle supports the use of external NFS storage with ODA, and we've got some NetApps, so I'll certainly be trying that out (hence the 10GbE requirement above).

· Admin Server high availability: in production we have the Admin Servers on their own separate management VM and, like OHS, protect them from hardware failure using vMotion. We'll need an alternative approach with ODA.

· Performance: the ODA X3-2 has E5-2690 SandyBridge-EP processors running at 2.9GHz, a generation newer than we have in production. Currently the POC has no objective to reduce cores used so I do not anticipate processor performance issues. We ran full load testing on the production environment prior to deployment but getting that set up can be quite resource intensive (especially during holiday season) so we may just have to do some sanity tests.

· Management: I would like to see how easily ODA hooks into an existing EM 12c, and what visibility it gives us across the stack down to hardware. Read the article here.

Oracle Database Appliance X3-2: official launch by Simon Haslam

Oracle Database Appliance X3-2: official launch

Today was the official launch of the Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) X3-2 in a webcast delivered by Oracle President Mark Hurd and Database Senior VP Andy Mendelsohn, and they were joined with a panel of 3 customers. Replay the webcast <TBC>.

This announcement has brought together a set of recent improvements to ODA:

  • hardware component updates,
  • an optional additional storage array,
  • a virtualisation option to allow you to run the database and other products in VMs,
  • a licence change to allow you to run Oracle Traffic Director (OTD) on ODA (not just Exalogic),
  • the packaging up of WebLogic and for ODA.

Oracle Middleware Partner Community Awards 2012–thanks for the nice ink!

Last week I attended the Oracle Partner Community Forum (SOA and WebLogic) in Portugal. Whilst I picked up lots of new nuggets of information from my peers and Oracle product management, one thing that caught me completely by surprise was being given an Oracle WebLogic Partner Community Award for "Outstanding WebLogic 12c Contribution 2012."

WebLogic Partner Community Award - Outstanding WebLogic 12c Contribution 2012I was quite touched by this - compared to the heady days when I used to work at a big SI (Logica) as small niche player recognition and thanks are relatively hard to come by! There are also a lot of very dedicated professionals out there and I'm only a tiny part of the whole Fusion Middleware community. I am honoured though and (in topical Oscars style..!) am very grateful to everyone who's helped me out on UKOUG SIGs and conference over the last year, in particular the Middleware Sunday 'crew': Jacco Landlust of course, Frank Munz, René van Wijk, plus those who I often call upon to bounce ideas around with, like Ronald van LuttikhuizenAndreas Chatziantoniou, Markus Eisele, Chris Muir, Steve Millidge and others whom I've almost certainly missed. Finally, Middleware Sunday wouldn't have been possible without Oracle's support, so a big thanks back to Jürgen Kress for that! Read the full article here.

A new Exalogic feature is Exabus – High Speed Network Virtualization. On the WebLogic side Oracle Traffic Director is my personal highlight. Traffic Director is a Load balancer or Local traffic manager on the application network layer.

Oracle Traffic Director facts:

  • Supports support SSL encryption.
  • 40GBps InfiniBand connections instead of the 1GBps
  • Virtual appliance (VA) running on Oracle VM Server
  • SSL-offloading, caching and redirecting
  • Tight integration with OHS and Apache
