WebLogic 12.1.3 was released and with it the support for perhaps the most important Java EE 7 APIs for database-backed Web Applications development. There are also some improvements in the Apache Maven Plugin, which makes developers’ life much easier, allows for much better automated testing (Arquillian!), Continuous Integration and Delivery. IDEs that support Maven-based projects also benefit from this. Does this makes WebLogic the best Java EE application server to run modern web HTML5/Javascript applications with RESTful and WebSockets services? Wouldn’t be fair if I told you yes, now would it? So to give you a nice way to test WebLogic, I created a Dockerfile for you to in order to create a WebLogic domain on your development environment to test it as you wish. Go to the weblogic-docker for the Developer ZIP Distro Dockerfile on the WebLogic Community GitHub repository.
