This chapter describes the WebLogic Spring SCA applications that will be deployed to WebLogic Server. WebLogic Spring SCA applications can be run in a standalone instance of WebLogic Server or can be assembled as components of SCA composites in Oracle SOA.
WebLogic SCA applications should bundle their own
spring.jar, version 2.0.6 or higher. Oracle recommends Spring 2.5.6.
WebLogic Spring SCA applications have the following characteristics:
The Spring application context file contains SCA elements to configure SCA references, services, and their bindings. See Chapter 6, "Configuring the Spring Application Context," Chapter 7, "Configuring EJB Session Bean Bindings," and Chapter 8, "Configuring Web Service Bindings."
Deployment units are organized following guidelines described in Chapter 9, "Deploying WebLogic Spring SCA Applications."
