In this post I am going to walk through setting up and using WebLogic on OpenShift, using the Oracle WebLogic Server Kubernetes Operator. My starting point is the OpenShift Container Platform server that I set up on OCI in this earlier post.
I am going to use the operator to manage my domains in OpenShift. The operator pattern is common in Kubernetes for managing complex software products that have special lifecycle requirements, different to the base assumptions made by Kubernetes. For example, when there is state in a pod that needs to be saved or migrated before terminating a pod. The WebLogic Kubernetes operator includes such built-in knowledge of WebLogic, so it greatly simplifies the management of WebLogic in a Kubernetes environment. Plus it is completely open source and supported by Oracle.
Here’s an overview of the process I am going to walk through: Read the complete article here.
