Use Oracle WebLogic Server for OCI to quickly create your Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) application environment in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, including an Oracle WebLogic Server domain, in a fraction of the time it would normally take on-premises.
Oracle WebLogic Server for OCI is available as a set of applications in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Marketplace. After launching one of these applications, you use a simple wizard interface to configure and provision your domains along with any supporting cloud resources like compute instances, networks and load balancers.
You can track and monitor the progress of an Oracle WebLogic Server for OCI stack in Resource Manager. As your workload requirements change, you can use Resource Manager to scale the domain by adding or removing managed servers. A stack also provides a convenient method of deleting the cloud resources for a domain when you no longer require them.
After creating an Oracle WebLogic Server domain, you can administer the domain and deploy Java EE applications to it just like on-premises domains. Use standard Oracle WebLogic Server tools like the administration console and WebLogic Scripting Tool (WLST). You can also administer the operating system on the compute instances using a secure shell (SSH) client and standard Linux tools.
Oracle WebLogic Server for OCI can also create a domain that includes the Java Required Files (JRF) components. A JRF-enabled domain:
- Supports the Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF)
- Can be administered and monitored using the Oracle Fusion Middleware Control console
- Connects to an existing database in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure
After creating a JRF-enabled domain with Oracle WebLogic Server for OCI, you can install additional Oracle Fusion Middleware products onto the domain if you have existing on-premise licenses for these products.
