#OOW15 Wrap by Frank Munz


Oracle Open World is finished and IMHO it was great! What I particularly enjoyed was that Oracle this year delivered a lot of what was announced last year. The cloud offerings seem to be heading the right way (Oracle uses industry accepted terms now when talking about cloud, concludes to my definitions and delivers across IaaS, PaaS and SaaS). In addition Oracle Fusion Middleware 12.2.1, in particular WebLogic 12.2.1 is (more...)

WebLogic Server 12.1.3 on Kubernetes

Most of you recall, that I have some little history in Oracle WebLogic server. Coming all the way back from BEA times. I don't want to comment on recent developments or features or standard support, but one thing is for sure: It is out there and having the chance to run it containerized is something many customers will appreciate. Maybe this is the one thing, that will make a real difference in our industry with (more...)

Test your WebLogic 12.1.3 enviroment with Robot

Robot Framework is a generic test automation framework which has an easy-to-use tabular test data syntax and it utilizes the keyword-driven testing approach. This means we can write our tests in readable and understandable text. If we combine this with the REST Management interface of WebLogic 12.1.3 we are able to test every detail of a WebLogic domain configuration and when we combine this

Create with WLST a SOA Suite, Service Bus 12.1.3 Domain

When you want to create a 12.1.3 SOA Suite, Service Bus Domain, you have to use the WebLogic config.sh utility.  The 12.1.3 config utility is a big improvement when you compare this to WebLogic 11g. With this I can create some complex cluster configuration without any after configuration. But if you want to automate the domain creation and use it in your own (provisioning) tool/script then you

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

Configure Coherence HotCache

Coherence can really accelerate and improve your application because it's fast, high available, easy to setup and it's scalable.
