This section describes the contents and organization of this guide—Administering Server Environments for Oracle WebLogic Server.
This document describes how you design, configure, and manage WebLogic Server environments. It is a resource for system administrators and operators responsible for implementing a WebLogic Server installation. This document is relevant to all phases of a software project, from development through test and production phases.
It is assumed that the reader is familiar with Java EE and Web technologies, object-oriented programming techniques, and the Java programming language.
The document is organized as follows:
This chapter, Chapter 1, "Introduction and Roadmap" describes the scope of this guide and lists related documentation.
Chapter 2, "Using Work Managers to Optimize Scheduled Work" describes the WebLogic Server execution model and the process of configuring application access to the execute queue.
Chapter 3, "Avoiding and Managing Overload" describes detecting, avoiding, and recovering from overload conditions.
Chapter 4, "Configuring Network Resources" describes optimizing your WebLogic Server domain for your network.
Chapter 5, "Configuring Web Server Functionality" describes using WebLogic Server as a Web server.
Chapter 6, "Using the WebLogic Persistent Store" describes configuring and monitoring the persistent store, a built-in, high-performance storage solution for WebLogic Server subsystems and services that require persistence.
Chapter 7, "Using the Plug-in for Oracle Virtual Assembly Builder" describes the WebLogic Server introspection plug-in for Oracle Virtual Assembly Builder, which can be used to examine a single WebLogic domain and the Middleware home directory in which it resides.
This document includes a new chapter that describes the WebLogic Server introspection plug-in for Oracle Virtual Assembly Builder, which in previous releases was documented in the Oracle Virtual Assembly Builder User's Guide. In this release, this plug-in includes a number of Node Manager support enhancements. For more information, see Chapter 7, "Using the Plug-in for Oracle Virtual Assembly Builder".
