WebLogic Server 9.x provides database connectivity with data sources. A data source is a pool of database connections from which a connection can be obtained. A data source can be configured separately or as a multi-datasource. A multi-data source is collection of data sources. A data source is configured with a JNDI binding. A DataSource object is obtained with a JNDI lookup. A Connection object can be obtained from a DataSource object with the getConnection() method. WebLogic Server provides an administration console to configure a data source. WebLogic Server 9.x includes Type 4 JDBC drivers from DataDirect for DB2, Informix, Microsoft SQL Server, Sybase, and Oracle databases. JDBC drivers for other databases can be incorporated in the server by including the JAR files for the JDBC drivers in the server classpath. New JDBC features in WebLogic Server 9.0 include... (more)

Configuring Linux Virtualization with Oracle VirtualBox

Virtualization is the process creating a virtual version of a resource such as an operating system, network resource or storage device. Virtualization of an OS involves hosting an OS on another OS using a virtualizer such as Oracle VirtualBox. Various Linux distributions such as openSUSE, Ubuntu, and Fedora are available. In this article we'll discuss hosting openSUSE, Ubuntu, and Fedora on Oracle VirtualBox running on Windows OS. Setting the Environment Download the ISO images for the guest OS to be installed, openSUSE 12.1 Live KDE ISO, Ubuntu ISO, Fedora ISO. Download the Oracl... (more)

Migrating a JBoss EJB Application to WebLogic

The JBoss open source application server is commonly used in the development phase of a J2EE project. In the production phase the commercial BEA WebLogic server is preferred because of its enhanced set of features. Without modifications, an application developed in JBoss does not deploy in WebLogic server. The deployment descriptors for the WebLogic server are different from the JBoss deployment descriptors. An application may be migrated to WebLogic by converting the vendor-specific deployment descriptors to WebLogic. In this tutorial an EJB application developed in JBoss will ... (more)

Configuring Eclipse for Remote Debugging a WebLogic Java Application

A J2EE application deployed in the WebLogic server may be debugged in the Eclipse IDE with the remote debugger provided by Eclipse. Without a debugger the error message has to be obtained from the application server error log to debug the application. With the remote debugger provided by Eclipse, exception breakpoints may be added to the application file to debug. When an application is run in WebLogic and the application generates an error, the application gets suspended and the Eclipse IDE Debug perspective displays the error. In this tutorial we will debug a WebLogic Applicat... (more)
