When to Use WebLogic Express

WebLogic Express is a good fit for projects that use Servlets, Java Server Pages (JSPs), and Java applications using Java classes, Remote Method Invocation (RMI), and Java Database Connectivity (JDBC). WebLogic Express does not support Enterprise Java Beans, Java Messaging Service, J2EE Connector Architecture, Web services, and other features targeted at enterprise-level applications. It is a suitable alternative to using an Open Source Servlet Engine. See "Selecting the Right Java Servlet Engine for Your Environment" for a detailed discussion comparing WebLogic with Open Source alternatives.

When to Upgrade WebLogic Express to WebLogic Server

Upgrade from WebLogic Express to WebLogic Server if you need to repartition your layers to create a separate EJB layer for your business logic, to meet certain business needs, or to manage complex architecture. You should upgrade to WebLogic Server if you need to integrate applications that are supported by J2EE Resource Adapters. Also upgrade to WebLogic Server if you need a messaging infrastructure (Java Messaging Service) for your application.
