OOW19: WebLogic News

Posted by Dirk Nachbar on Thursday, September 19, 2019 with No comments
During the Oracle Open World 2019 were some announcements regarding Oracle WebLogic Server.

The last year announced WebLogic Server 19c for Q1/2019 disappeared ...
There will be no WebLogic Server 13 Release ...

But there will be:

  • WebLogic Server, which should come up shortly, as usual what shortly means in Oracle terms is not clearly defined :-)
    • The WebLogic Server Release will be the Final Maintenance Release for 12.2.1.x, so don't expect too many new features
  • BETA Program for WebLogic Server 14.1.1 is announced and to be started shortly.
    • I really wonder who came to the idea with this Version numbering??? Is there any chance to consolidate the Version numbering of the Middleware Products with the Oracle Database Version numbering?
  • Oracle WebLogic Server on Microsoft Azure IaaS

Please note: WebLogic Server 14.1.1 is currently ONLY in BETA Program, so no downloads on "Technical Resources from Oracle (former OTN)" or on edelivery.oracle.com 
The new WebLogic 14.1.1 will support Java EE 8 and Jakarta EE 8.

If you are interested, you can register for the Beta Program under https://pdpm.oracle.com and if you are lucky, Oracle will select you to join the Beta Program.
