This is part II of my journey on learning Oracle Fusion Middleware with me (Atul Kumar). In part I here I covered why I started learning Oracle Fusion Middleware almost 10 Years ago, How it transformed my career and I now charge premium rate for my consulting Services and mentioned that If I can do it , you can do (Just follow things I learnt and order in which I learnt) .
I also mentioned first and most important thing I learn on anything is Concepts. In Fusion Middleware Concepts, you should understand Java & System Components , Various Homes in Middleware like WebLogic Home or Coherence Home (Quiz for you : What is Oracle Common Home in Fusion Middleware and How do you patch this ? Post your question or if you don’t know answer then ask this in our Private Facebook Group with other 2000+ Apps DBAs & DBAs )
After concepts, I mentioned to look at Architecture where I shared image of Oracle’s 3 Tier Architecture (I am going to share more about Architecture when I cover High Availability – HA & Disaster Recovery – DR )
In today’s post I am going to cover Heart of Oracle Fusion Middleware i.e. WebLogic Server . WebLogic Server is Application Server on which you deploy Java Components like SOA or OAM/OIM (remember I mentioned about Java & System components in first post ) .
You must learn Domain in WebLogic Server that includes Admin Server, Managed Server, Clusters and lot more . I covered this on this blog here, 8 Years ago and this is among top 20 posts and been visited more than 20,000 times. Go and read it here http://onlineappsdba.com/index.php/2008/07/24/domain-administration-managed-server-cluster-in-oracle-weblogic/ if you are new to WebLogic Server.
I am very Hands-On person and if I am in your place I would actual Install, Configure Domain , Test Start/Stop, Deployment of Application etc in WebLogic Server .
This is what I cover (apart from 50+ other things) in our Oracle Fusion Middleware Training workshop at our Online Learning Portal http://k21academy.com/courses/oracle-fusion-middleware-administration/ (This is 15 Module, 60+ video Lessons, 40+ Lab exercises Hands-On Workshop, Live with me)
Note: There is hassle of finish every thing in 5-6 Days, You get lifetime membership of all Lessons & Hands-On that you can play as and when you want + dedicated machine to practice.
Thing I followed on WebLogic at start and I recommend for you (and We ask everyone in our workshop to undergo are)
Here WebLogic Console is a browser based tool to mange Oracle WebLogic Server .
There are few more things that you need to learn in WebLogic for Fusion Middleware like JDBC & Security (or Integration with LDAP like OID/OUD or Active Directory) but that’s for next time . Now go and Learn about Oracle WebLogic Server from Oracle Guides
In next part We are going to look at Oracle HTTP Server (OHS) that is deployed in Web/DMZ tier .
