An article about Using Unified Archives to Deploy an Oracle WebLogic Server Cluster on Oracle Solaris 11.2 was published recently. This is based on my hands-on lab, with two co-authors, on Oracle OpenWorld 2014 (OOW2014). In the lab environment of OOW2014, a prebuilt VirtualBox VM image was provided, with a pre-configured full-functioned WebLogic Cluster, attendees could play with the Unified Archives right away, a really handy and powerful feature in Solaris 11.2.
Unfortunately, when publishing this lab, we were unable to get the VM image file published together (because of Oracle OTN policies). We are VERY sorry about that, because we know the process of preparing the lab environment is very time consuming, and all of a sudden, it requires audiences equipped with adequate knowledge about WebLogic Cluster, which is not a desired prerequisite of this lab...okay, if any of you encounter any troubles in preparing the lab environment, maybe you can leave me a comment, and let's see if we can figure out any solution...sorry.
