Oracle WebLogic application server is one of the most popular platforms for running and managing the classic JEE applications. Thanks to its flexible architecture it provides reliable and robust foundation for complex business applications, usually built as monolithic systems with all components (queues, business logic, UI etc.) packaged together. However, the IT market seems to be irreversibly shifting from monolithic applications towards distributed, highly available microservices with independent development lifecycles, very often running in the cloud. The platform for running such microservices is no longer classical JEE server, but rather a cloud native container orchestrator such as Kubernetes.
Changing the entire architecture for existing application is not an easy task and it comes with substantial risks, especially when we are just starting our journey towards cloud native world. It would be much easier if we could just run classical JEE applications in Kubernetes, but this requires porting the application server itself to the orchestrator, which, due to entirely different philosophies governing JEE and Kubernetes, could be quite challenging. Here where Oracle comes with rescue providing Oracle WebLogic Server Kubernetes Operator with official support for running WebLogic domains in the Kubernetes cluster.
WebLogic server operator is Oracle’s strategic direction for long run support of WebLogic and JEE platform on modern cloud native environments. Built with the expert knowledge and experience in both WebLogic and Kubernetes area, it gives reliable and secure way to run and manage both classical JEE applications as well as modern microservices in the same platform, using the same tool chain (docker, kubectl, helm, etc.), with the same ALM (CI/CD, containerization).
This webcast is aimed to help you understand Oracle strategy for legacy and modern development platforms (FMW and Cloud Native) as well as get up to speed with installing and configuring WebLogic domains in the Kubernetes cluster.
