Bye bye WebCache - Welcome Oracle Traffic Director

Posted by Dirk Nachbar on Thursday, December 01, 2011 with No comments
I am currently sitting here and listen to the WebCasts for the new Oracle WebLogic Server 12c Release.

Some highlights:

  • More then 200 new features
  • Java EE 6 fully profile certified
  • Seamless upgrades (let's see the reality :-) )
  • Introduction of Oracle Traffic Director
In my opinion one of the highlights is the introduction of the Oracle Traffic Director, which will be the replacement of the Oracle WebCache on Exalogic platforms. I will miss the WebCache, I really learnt over the years to love this tool ;-)
Oracle Traffic Directory will be officially supported only with Exalogic platforms, but also runable on 64bit OEL platforms ;-)

The downloads for the new Oracle WebLogic Server 12c ( should be available on Oracle Technology Network from the 5th of December 2011 going.

Note 2nd December 2011: There is also a Data Sheet for the new Oracle Traffic Director available
