Deploying Applications

Learn how to deploy your applications to Oracle Fusion Middleware.

Deploying Applications.

Adding a Web Tier front-end to your domain

Oracle Web Tier hosts Web pages (static and dynamic), provides security and high performance along with built-in clustering, load balancing, and failover features. In particular, the Web Tier contains Oracle HTTP Server.

Follow the instructions to install and configure Oracle HTTP Server in the WebLogic Server domain in Installing and Configuring Oracle HTTP Server.

For additional information, see Installing Multiple Products in the Same Domain.

Tuning and configuring Coherence for your topology

The standard installation topology includes a Coherence cluster that contains storage-enabled Managed Coherence Servers. This configuration is a good starting point for using Coherence, but depending upon your specific requirements, consider tuning and reconfiguring Coherence to improve performance in a production environment.

For information about Coherence clusters, see Configuring and Managing Coherence Clusters.

For information about tuning Coherence, see Administering Oracle Coherence.

For information about storing HTTP session data in Coherence, see Using Coherence*Web with WebLogic Server.

For more information about creating and deploying Coherence applications, see Developing Oracle Coherence Applications for Oracle WebLogic Server.

8.3 Preparing Oracle Data Integrator for Development

Review tasks you can perform to prepare Oracle Data Integrator for development.

Table 8-3 lists tasks that prepare Oracle Data Integrator for development.

Table 8-3 Tasks for Preparing Oracle Data Integrator for Development

Task Description More Information

Creating a logical agent

Multiple physical agents having identical roles in different environments can be grouped under the same logical agent. A logical agent is related to physical agents through contexts. When starting an execution, you indicate the logical agent and the context. Oracle Data Integrator will translate this information into a single physical agent that will receive the execution request.

Creating a Logical Agent

Managing the agents

Once your agents are defined in the topology, you can start, deploy, and stop your agents as needed.

Managing Agents

Administer your repositories

Additional tasks are available to create and connect to new master and work repositories, changing passwords, and other administrative tasks to help you customize your environment.

Administering Repositories

Create a server template for your Java EE agent

Oracle Data Integrator provides a Server Template Generation wizard to help you create a server template for a run-time agent.
