Dynamic groups in an LDAP are groups which contain a query to specify its members instead of specifying every member separately. Efficient usage of dynamic groups makes user maintenance a lot easier. Dynamic groups are implemented differently in different LDAP server implementations. Weblogic Server can be configured to use dynamic groups in order to fetch users for a specific group. In this blog I will describe how dynamic groups can be created in OpenLDAP and (more...)
Arquillian uses the concept of container adapters to allow it to execute test code with a specific test environment. For the Java EE area, most (more...)
This is very convenient since it enables the WebLogic Server embedded EJB container to used by simply adding weblogic.jar to the classpath when running the client:

The official documentation is extensive ... but could be considered TL;DR for a quick bootstrapping on how to use it.
As a late friday afternoon exercise I just pushed out an example of a very simple project that uses the weblogic-maven-plugin to deploy a web module. It's almost the simplest configuration that can be done of the plugin (more...)
This is great for developers since it maintains the high quality of the developer zip distribution and the convenience it provides - avoids reverting to the generic installer to then enable the application of patch set updates. For development use only.
Download it from OTN:
A loose travel itinerary is:
- Setting up an environment to explore the basic operations of Chef - using the Chef Development Kit (ChefDK)
- Exploring the basics of how Chef works to install Java and WebLogic Server on a single node
- Installing and examining some (more...)
This approach exposes the JAX-RS 2.0 API and enlists the Jersey 2.x implementation on the target server, allowing applications to make use of it as when they are deployed through a library reference in a weblogic deployment descriptor.
The one resulting (more...)
Using Eclipse (OEPE) to Develop Applications using WebSocket and JSON Processing API with WebLogic Server 12.1.3
The first step was downloading and installing the Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse (OEPE) distribution from OTN.
Firing up Eclipse, the next step is to add a new Server type for Oracle WebLogic Server 12.1.3, pointing at a local installation.
The additional APIs are:
- JSR 356 - Java API for WebSocket 1.0
- JSR 353 - Java API for JSON Processing
- JSR 339 - Java API for RESTful Web Services 2.0
- JSR 338 - Java Persistence API 2.1
Well, this blog posting is not about explaining the (more...)
JSR 353: JavaTM API for JSON Processing
This new API, working from the foundations provided by earlier implementations such as Jackson, Jettison and Google JSon, now provides a standard API for working with JSON from Java. This goals and objectives of the API described in the initial (more...)
By way of a simple example, I'll build out an application that uses the freegeoip.net REST service to lookup the physical location of a specified IP address or domain name and deploy (more...)
One that I think is going to be very popular is JAX-RS 2.0, which includes some useful new capabilities around filtering, interception and a really useful new client API.
In the WebLogic Server 12.1.3 release we are providing this in the form of an optional shared-library that contains: the JAX-RS 2.0 API, (more...)

This summary shows step-by-step how to increase throughput and response time by doing this as an exercise with the AIA 11.2 O2C COMMS PIP.
AIA Tips & Tricks Series (2): Preventing from Exceptions with Very Large Audit Trails in AIA/SOA 11g
In very complex flows, audit trail or flow trace sizes can grow above the limit where EM console will display this correctly with the default settings. The reason is to prevent from generating huge audit trail objects in memory and thus potentially causing OOM errors – therefore the standard limit (more...)
Monitoring and optimizing BPEL Thread Pool utilization (and other metrics) is one of the key activities in performance tuning of BPEL/SOA based integrations. Although EM console provides some basic monitoring of the BPEL engine statistics, it is limited regarding the update interval, detail and the recording interval and cannot display (more...)
