Oracle WebLogic Server 12.2.1 is now certified to run on Docker containers. As part of this certification, we are releasing Docker files on GitHub to create Oracle WebLogic Server 12.2.1 install images and Oracle WebLogic Server 12.2.1 domain images. These images are built as an extension of existing Oracle Linux images Oracle Linux Images. To help you with this, we have posted Dockerfiles and scripts on GitHub as examples for you to get started.
Docker is a platform that enables users to build, package, ship and run distributed applications. Docker users package up their applications, and any dependent libraries or files, into a Docker image. Docker images are portable artifacts that can be distributed across Linux environments. Images that have been distributed can be used to instantiate containers where applications can run in isolation from other applications running in other containers on the same host operating system.
The table below describes the certification provided for various WebLogic Server versions. You can use these combinations of Oracle WebLogic Server, JDK, Linux and Docker versions when building your Docker images. Read the complete article here.
