Developing with JAX-RS 2.0 for WebLogic Server 12.1.3

In an earlier post on the topic of Using JAX-RS 2.0 with WebLogic Server 12.1.3, I described that we've utilized the shared-library model to distribute and enable it.

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

Following from my last posting, I thought I'd also show how Eclipse (OEPE) makes the new Java EE 7 APIs available from Oracle WebLogic Server 12.1.3.

The first step was downloading and installing the Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse (OEPE) distribution from OTN.

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/eclipse/downloads/index.html

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.

Developing with the WebSocket and JSON Processing API with WebLogic Server 12.1.3 and Maven

Oracle WebLogic Server 12.1.3 provides full support for Java EE 6 and also adds support for a select set of APIs from Java EE 7.

The additional APIs are:
  • JSR 356 - Java API for WebSocket 1.0

Oracle SOA Suite 12c tips – Tuning the SOA infrastructure thread pool

One of the new capabilities of Oracle SOA Suite 12c is the ability to control the SOA infrastructure thread pools, except the resource pools for EDN and the adapters, with Oracle WebLogic Server work managers. Each partition will has its own work managers defined. This allows you to separate services in partitions and, to some extent, tune them separately based on for example specific SLA requirements.

Well, this blog posting is not about explaining the (more...)

JSON Parsing is Cake with WebLogic Server 12.1.3

Another feature of WebLogic Server 12.1.3 that I'm sure developers will find useful is the inclusion of an implementation of JSR-353 Java API for JSON Processing.

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...)

Using the JAX-RS 2.0 Client API with WebLogic Server 12.1.3

As part of the JAX-RS 2.0 support we are providing with WebLogic Server 12.1.3, one really useful new feature is the new Client API it provides, enabling applications to easily interact with REST services to consume and publish information.

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...)

Using JAX-RS 2.0 in WebLogic Server 12.1.3

We've been working on adding some Java API updates to the coming WebLogic Server 12.1.3 release.

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...)

WebLogic Server 12.1.2 – Zip File Updates

I love the zip file distribution.  It's the flavour of WLS I mostly use.  Unzip, configure, go.  Delete it to remove it, start all over again.  Install it from a Maven goal.  Easy.
Small point to note is that the zip file distribution has been (more...)
