Cookbook : Middleware as a Service using Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c

Oracle's Middleware as a Service (MWaaS) solution for enterprise private cloud provides a complete application development and deployment environment. It includes a complete runtime environment comprised of all services necessary to deploy and run an enterprise-class application, including services such as application hosting, persistence store, application integration and APIs that enable programmatic access to additional computing services that might be required by an application. Identity services are an example of APIs available within a PaaS environment. MWaaS facilitates cheaper and faster deployment of applications as developers need not deal with the complexities of the underlying hardware and software components.

Oracle recently published a cookbook for Middleware as a Service using Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c. This document explains the step-by-step instructions in provisioning a WebLogic domain using Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c . These steps include:
