WebLogic on ODA: Final release and new partner supported model

A new version of the WebLogic installation wizard for WebLogic on ODA is now available on OTN for download, and supports the latest release of ODA hardware and software.

With the latest release of WebLogic on ODA, which now supports the X5-2 hardware, we have come to a new chapter. Oracle partners around the world have been developing customized solutions using WebLogic on ODA for years now. Many of them started with the wizard-driven templates produced by the Oracle WebLogic engineering team, and then went on to design their own customized solutions by expanding on and embellishing these templates for their customers' unique needs. A great new value proposition is also being part of this new released version:

 solution-based support by experienced Oracle partners, who are ready and able to assist Oracle customers worldwide with new or existing solutions.
