Automated provision of Oracle Weblogic Server Platform

Automation of the whole process for the provision of an Oracle Middleware Platform consists of a multitude of complex sensitive procedural steps, both from a semantic as well as a syntactic perspective, in combination with the artifacts required, programmatically reduced to a single command line call, it enables execution in the shortest time possible in continuously high quality and reproducibility.

Definition

The term "Provision" of a Oracle Weblogic Server Platform comprises its whole life time cycle, starting from its initial installation, via a chosen number of possible extensions and/or reductions (JAR-/Script-Patching), to the final complete deinstallation.

Functionality

The Process for an automated provision of an Oracle Weblogic Server Platform:

  • comprises all required working steps and artifacts
  • requires no preparation
  • requires no post-processing
  • is applicable on all versions from 10g Release 3, operated under Unix/Linux
  • enables parallel operation of various versions on one host system
  • fulfills all requirements for the provision of high availability:
    • Node Manager
    • Crash recovery
    • AutoKillIfFailed
    • AutoRestart
    • Clustering
    • Whole Server Migration
  • delivers additional commands for efficient and reliable configuration. These commands can be issued centrally, from any of the unlimited number of comprising host systems, for configuration and/or administration of:
    • SSL certificates (self-signed), configured (CN, OU, O, L, S, C) to support Hostname-Verification (generation/extension/reduction)
    • SSH- und SSL key trust (generation/extension/reduction)
    • OCM/MOS access (setup/management/termination)
    • Weblogic Server domains (generation/extension/reduction)
    • Weblogic Server instances (operating and monitoring run level)
  • can be executed as a signed package
  • unlimited reproducibility
  • unlimited expandability due to modular structure
