WebLogic 12c Dynamic Clusters: Power of Simplicity and Elasticity

Oracle WebLogic Server cluster consists of multiple WebLogic Servers running simultaneously and working together. It provides increased scalability and reliability.

Oracle WebLogic Server 12c has an exiting new feature called Dynamic Clusters. WebLogic Server dynamic cluster contains multiple dynamic servers that is based on a single server template. This template contains the base configuration of the servers in a dynamic cluster and will be the basis for all the servers in the cluster so that each server does not need to be manually configured when expanding the cluster. You just specify the number of server instances on a peak load and let the Oracle Weblogic Server takes care of the rest.

Partner Webcast – Oracle Exadata Database Machine X3: Architecture and Optimization - 03 Oct 2013

Month in the Life of an Oracle Exadata Admin Series Operations Workbook
Engineered systems can have a profound effect on improving your overall datacenter operations, but a thoughtful and planned integration will be critical for you to realize the performance and process improvements that engineered systems can bring. Knowing how to fully leverage new technologies, integrate these in your existing environment, and ensure you have the skills sets and governance necessary to make them successful isn't easy.

The Oracle Exadata Database Machine is a paradigm shift in database processing—one which is becoming more widely adopted. Drivers for moving to Exadata are improved performance and capacity, reduced cost of the storage, reduced server footprint, simplified high performance networking, and reduced Oracle software licensing. In addition, greatly improved business agility is a consequence of significantly reducing build, assemble, and deployment time. If multiple existing databases are being consolidated onto Exadata, administration and management costs are also positively impacted.

Sample of declarative components in ADF - Confirm Button

Oracle Application Development Framework

Very often we need to provide the same functionality in various places in our ADF application.Quite common example could be a confirmation dialog which needs to be displayed after pressing some buttons (e.g. for deleting rows in a table). Of course most of us know the recipe for that: af:button + af:popup + af:showPopupBehavior + backing bean method. In order to simplify our lives it would be nice to wrap those pieces in something which we could simply drop on the page once and configure only the necessary parts. That's the use case for ADF Declarative Components feature.

I have created a simple example (using the latest and greatest ADF 12c) of how to use declarative components to provide a new composite button with confirmation dialog.
