Superb reference for WebLogic server 8 Nov. 2011
By Chris A. Ostrowski - Published on
Format: Paperback
Oracle has adopted WebLogic Server as its middleware platform. Release 12.2 of the e-Business Suite (as well as Fusion Applications) will use WebLogic as its middleware technology stack. To say that WebLogic is a significant departure from the Oracle Application Server (OAS) is a gross understatement. WebLogic is architected differently and has an incredible amount of functionality that OAS does not. Oracle's WebLogic documentation, while thorough, is overwhelming for all but the most intrepid of administrators and developers. This is not due to any fault of Oracle's, mind you - it's just the sheer volume of documentation that makes it difficult for anyone using the products in the stack to quickly find and understand what they're looking for.

To the rescue comes this book. Of the WebLogic books available (I've read Wrox's Professional Oracle WebLogic Server, O'Reily's WebLogic: The Definitive Guide and Wiley's Mastering BEA WebLogic Server), Mr. Alapati's is the only one I found to have:

1) A logical organization of topics
2) Enough time spent on the "whys" (as well as the "hows")
3) Up-to-date information (O'Reily's and Wiley's books are pretty long in the tooth and contain no Oracle-specific information)
4) The restraint to not go off into a million different tangets (example: Chapter 4 is an excellent reference for setting up JMS in WebLogic *without* padding the book with page after page on what JMS actually *is* - there's plenty of other books and resources on the web for that) and
5) Just the right amount of information regarding WLST (WebLogic Scripting Language) - while not covered in detail, anyone with scripting knowledge will be able to use WLST in a very short period of time.

Overall, I found the structure very well organized (allowing me to find tasks quickly), Mr. Alapati's writing style to be very smooth and easy to read and the steps for performing tasks in WebLogic server to be complete without being too granular (some areas could have used more screen shots, but that's a minor quibble). Overall, highly recommended.

Simply a must-read for any Weblogic Administrator 14 Oct. 2011
By Tariq Farooq - Published on
Format: Paperback
Sam Alapati is a grand-master in his own realm; He has done it again; Yet, another feather in his accolade-filled hat!

Ranging from Comprehensive Concepts Overview, Installation, Administration, Configuration, Setting up the environment, HA/Clusters, Security, Performance Tuning, Tech. Deep Dive & a whole lot more, this book covers ALL/relevant areas of administration.

I would recommend this book as a MUST-READ for the Weblogic Administrator to learn for-the-first-time, as well as enhance & improve their existing skills.

resource for anyone new to WebLogic Server. 2 Mar. 2012
By Brian R. Hitchcock - Published on
Format: Paperback
I need to be prepared to support Fusion Applications. I found many resources and among them were three books from Oracle Press. This is the second of them. The first was Managing Oracle Fusion Applications and the third is the Handbook and Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Architecture and Management. Since I have reviewed other Oracle Press books, they sent me copies of each to read and review.

Fusion Applications is built on top of Fusion Middleware, and WebLogic Server is a central piece of Fusion Middleware. WebLogic Server (WLS) provides the `container' where Java EE applications are deployed. The business functionality of Fusion Applications is provided by Java EE applications, which explains why WebLogic Server is critical to supporting Fusion Applications.

Even if you won't be supporting Fusion Applications, WebLogic Server is replacing Oracle Application Server in various Oracle products. As an example, the latest version of Oracle Enterprise Business Suite (EBS), version 12.2, will have WebLogic Server.

I've been working with WebLogic Server and Fusion Applications for about a year, and I wanted to read this book because I had several specific issues I wanted to learn about. I have seen many WebLogic Server instances go into the state FAILED_NOT_RESTARTABLE and I needed to understand what causes this. While this book never mentions this issue by name, I did learn how the WebLogic Server instance goes through various states while starting up. When this process encounters issues, this is when the instance fails.

This book is very dense with specific technical detail. I learned many things about managing WebLogic Server. The focus is how things work so that you can implement and manage WebLogic Server in your environment. Many issues that had been confusing me about WebLogic Server were cleared up by reading this book.

Oracle is moving to Java EE applications and this means WebLogic Server is replacing Oracle Application Server. Anyone that supports Oracle systems will likely run into WebLogic Server in the not too distant future. This book is densely packed with technical detail for those that will be WebLogic Server administrators. I learned a great deal from reading this book and it has helped me on the job.
