Welcome!


Let me start by defining the current problem-detection process in most enterprises. An issue arises in the production environment for a J2EE application running on WebLogic, information is captured via logs, and WebLogic server is rebooted. From this point, application developers and a...
BEA retired its WebLogic Server 5.1 on February 1, 2004. It had been supported for four years prior to retirement. One of the options for migrating applications that are running on 5.1 is to use WebLogic Server 8.1, which provides a range of new features for J2EE 1.3-based applications...
BEA's name is synonymous with the application server. Most applications running on Unix in North America run on BEA's WebLogic server, particularly financial apps. The current stable WebLogic 8.1 version does a lot more than earlier versions. Migrating to new versions is always challen...
A domain contains configuration information for a BEA WebLogic Server instance. It has configuration information about servers, clusters, and machines. A domain also contains configuration information about resources such as Java DataBase Connectivity (JDBC) connection pools, JDBC data...

It wasn't all that long ago, the last issue of WLDJ if I am not mistaken, that I expressed my dismay over why so few projects in my travels were using WebLogic Workshop as the primary development IDE. And only a few readers sent in e-mails regarding their reasons for choosing another I...
Enterprise JavaBeans (EJBs) are application components that implement the EJB architecture specification and are part of the Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) platform. EJBs are ideally suited for the development and deployment of distributed, scalable, transactional, secure, portable, ...
A 'StackOverFlow' message is usually indicative of an error in the application code of the user, an error in the Java Virtual Machine, or in BEA WebLogic Server itself. This message is usually seen right before a Java Virtual Machine core dump or the WebLogic Server process just 'goes ...

This is the third and final article in a series aimed at demystifying the frameworks that compose the BEA WebLogic Portal. Although this month I focus on the portal framework, you should realize that the value of WebLogic Portal is in the combination of frameworks, components, ...
In last month's article, I provided an in-depth description of the Advisor Framework that is embedded in WebLogic Portal. This month, I'll focus on describing the components, capabilities, and extensions of the Event Framework. Next month I'll look at the Portal Framework
WebLogic Server administration is the last area you need to study to pass the WebLogic Server 6.0 certification test. In this article, I'll cover some topics you may find on the test, such as deployment, security, and using the server console.
This series of articles focuses on demystifying the frameworks embedded in the BEA WebLogic Portal. The first framework that will be discussed in-depth is the Advisor Framework, followed in future articles by the Event Framework and the Portal Framework.
At Rosewood Software Services, we use Rational's Unified Process (RUP) and help many clients tailor it for their use. RUP specifies a number of models, including the Implementation Model, which is used to structure the physical artifacts (or files) within a project. For example, in ...
We're nearly done covering the topics for the test. This month I'll discuss JDBC, transactions, and clustering. Be sure to give careful attention to these topics, as they can slip by during studying. As in my previous articles, I've included a sample test to help you study for the real...
This month, we'll study for the EJB portion of the BEA WebLogic Server 6.0 Certification Test. Now, I know I was also supposed to talk about JDBC this month, but I just didn't have enough room to squeeze it in.
Last month, I talked about signing up to take the BEA WebLogic Server 6.0 Certification test. At that time, I promised I would go into more detail about what you should study, and that's what I'm including for your use. This article covers two specific topics on the test: the Java Nami...
