Operational Implementation Strategies

Oracle Corporation Software

With the acquisition of BEA Systems software, Oracle Corporation now has two application servers: WLS: WebLogic Server and Oracle Application Server. As part of its acquisition of Sun Microsystems, Oracle assumed sponsorship of the open source GlassFish Application Server. GlassFish Application Server is JEE6 certified, it is being integrated integration with Coherence and other Oracle technologies.


Oracle's stated strategy is to make WebLogic its preferred application server; it has been rebranded as Oracle WebLogic Application Server. The WLS server supports Java J2EE and EJB. It features web services and SOA: Service Oriented Architecture support along with administration, operations, and management capabilities for reducing operational costs and increasing uptime. Complementary components from Oracle Application Server along with WebLogic Operations Control from BEA and Coherence from Tangosol have been integrated into WebLogic Server.

The editions of WLS are:

Edition Base Functionality
WebLogic Server Standard Edition This is the entry level J2EE application server.
WebLogic Server Enterprise Edition This server includes the standard edition components, plus the clustering and management capabilities for organizations with larger scale enterprise applications.
WebLogic Suite This server provides full Java EE, clustering, and management capabilities and in memory data grid and real-time JVM.
Oracle Application Grid

This server provides the grid which complements application server environments for organizations with higher scale-out or latency-sensitive requirements.

In order to realize a level of AIV: Application Infrastructure Virtualization from Oracle and WLS, software from multiple vendors must be deployed together: VMware ESX Server, MS Windows or Linux operating system, LiquidVM, BEA WLS Virtual Education, and Oracle WebLogic Operations Control.

The challenge will be managing differing application server environments until the Oracle Roadmap becomes a reality. Oracle Corporation will be providing maintenance for current Oracle Application Server 10g customers during the convergence of functionality with the WebLogic Server.

SYS-ED's WebLogic courses and Oracle training programs provide a framework for:

  • Mastering the server administration skills for providing security, handling users, debugging system issues, and performing installation tasks.

  • Learning to use the tools for designing and coding applications with a variety of programming languages.

  • Implementing and addressing the issues associated with WebLogic Server, Oracle Fusion, and the Oracle Roadmap.

  • Developing the skills required for the strategic integration of Oracle Exadata database software with WebLogic Server.

  • Examining whether organizations' with a substantial investment in Oracle software, should deploy now, migrate later, or wait for new software to come to market.

Modernizing Legacy Application Infrastructures

SOA: Service Oriented Architecture incorporates an established set of practices which is becoming increasingly mainstream. The fundamental tenets are the reuse of applications and business logic across the enterprise and as an organization's scale and needs change, migrate and redeploy applications on different physical hardware economically with minimal disruption.

According to Oracle Corporation white papers, an efficient implementation will:
1- Incrementally be adopted. 2- Incorporate legacy systems into the new architecture.
3- Use an existing unified, consistent, and flexible architecture.

4- Use a scalable governance model.

When WebLogic Server is used in a IBM software environment such as DB2, CICS Transaction Server, and WebSphere MQ, then the implementation of a SOA: Service Oriented Architecture infrastructure also will include application-based middleware frameworks.

Client-specific WebLogic Training

The client is looking at adopting SOA: Service Oriented Architecture at two separate levels.

1- The internal services needs to be exposed to consumers as web services.

2- The internal architecture needs to be converted to use BPEL and web services.

The current architecture has been built upon a legacy mainframe infrastructure and it may not be realistic from a technical standpoint to convert to SOA or doing so would take a considerable expenditure of resources and time.

Some of the services will need to be exposed as WSRP portlets. This will offer the GUI front end for the services. In this way, the consumer does not have to develop a front end application. The existing internal architecture uses a pub-sub style interaction instead of a request response type interaction. SYS-ED will provide guidance on whether this can be modeled using BPEL.

The examples and hands-on workshops will teach Messaging and Asynchronous Communication:
  • Sending a request from a BPEL process and not wait for a response right away.
  • Performing non-blocking calls using a parallel activity.
  • Ensuring delivery using messaging.
  • Implementing a publish/subscribe pattern.
  • Handling events from a BPEL process.


SYS-ED Approach to WebLogic and Oracle Training

SYS-ED WebLogic and Oracle curriculum incorporates the first generation and longstanding experience of our staff with the WLS: WebLogic and Oracle database development platforms.

We offer a prototyping environment which allows our clients to assess a comprehensive range of WebLogic Server configurations and the trade-offs involved in selecting a commercial and open source software implementation which meets specific operational objectives: base operating system, scripting, database, middleware and programming languages.

Our longstanding experience with the Sun Microsystems Solaris operating system, IBM mainframe system software, and WebSphere MQ middleware, provides us with a privileged perspective from which to teach platform migration. It is standard policy for SYS-ED to tailor our WebLogic courses and Oracle training programs to include SOA subject matter, project specifications, and client specific exercises. We refer to this premium training service as educational consultancy.

Solaris and Oracle Oracle and IBM Web Servers WebSphere MQ Middleware

The courseware used in SYS-ED's WebLogic and Oracle training incorporates an examination of the web server architecture with program logic and sample programs which have been validated on consultancy assignments. With the increasingly hybrid mix of commercial implementations of Java and Microsoft .NET with different scalable enterprise databases, quality documentation is fundamental to a successful training outcome.

Upon completion of a course, students are welcome to submit WebLogic and Oracle questions from back on the job. Courses are available in a classroom, distance-learning medium, or client presentation system.

Industry Standard WebLogic Courses

SYS-ED's WebLogic and Oracle Corporation Roadmap courses have been developed based upon the application of adult learning theory and the standards of the New York State Department of Education.

  • Explanations of the protocols serving as the foundation of web services and its utilization with XML.
  • Migrating and upgrading applications from the client server model to the emerging service oriented architecture standard.
  • Guidance on web development utilizing open source Java frameworks and proprietary .NET.
  • Demonstration of Java and .NET interoperability and identification of pitfalls.
  • Demonstration of the interoperability of .NET with Java and identification of pitfalls in relation to the source documentation.
  • Transitioning from Microsoft development platforms to Java.

SYS-ED is independent from the source software companies and tailored exercises. If we can not warranty a superior training outcome, then SYS-ED will politely turn down an assignment.

SYS-ED has been conducting courses in the public domain since 1980; however, there have been changes in the laws and regulations governing computer training in the state of New York. The schedule on our websites reflects a projected time frame for licensure with the New York State Department of Education - Bureau of Proprietary School Supervision and submission and approval of curriculum. It will be updated quarterly.

Evolving IT - Interrelated Technologies

Information technology training is more complex and challenging than ever before. Organizational enterprise has a substantial investment in infrastructure and applications specific to their operations. There are new industry standard protocols, web server and web enabled technologies, and development platforms which require a combination of development from scratch and integration with the existing system software and enterprise databases. There are long term implications regarding the strategic mix of commercial and open source software which is selected. Decisions have to be made on whether to maintain and upgrade the existing legacy applications, while retrofitting and transitioning to the new technologies. SYS-ED trained a significant portion of the first generation of DP personnel. And looks forward to training their IT successors in the 21st century.

WebLogic Courses
SYS-ED's WebLogic courses are tough, but they're worth it. Our challenging "hands-on" WebLogic training provides a foundation and framework for Fortune 1000 companies, government municipalities, and healthcare providers to meet their staffing requirements and acquire specialized interrelated expertise with WebLogic, Oracle, and Java. 1

SYS-ED's WebLogic courseware is highly respected. We draw upon our extensive library of courseware, sample programs and case studies to explain, demonstrate, and teach industry standard and consultancy derived WebLogic subject matter in a variety of operating environments - Linux- and UNIX- variants, IBM mainframe system software, and MS Windows.

Teaching is Our Business
Most computer training companies are divisions of large software or consulting companies. Not SYS-ED. Our only goal is to provide quality computer training for highly motivated professionals - no more and no less. Because we're independent, we're free to concentrate on teaching - and since 1980 we have been doing it very well.

Our Teachers Know How to Teach
SYS-ED instructors combine teaching skills with broad practical experience as consultants. Our system consultants have been working with WebLogic and Oracle since the initial release of the software. We teach not only "how to", but "why", building a solid foundation in fundamentals and insights into advanced subject matter. After a course, they're available to answer questions.

Enrollment - SYS-ED WebLogic Courses are NOT for Everyone
No one is allowed to enroll in a SYS-ED WebLogic course, without a consultation with our Director of Education. We review the operational objectives and project specifications for the organization evaluating whether to send its employee for the training. The employee is ONLY allowed to register if they have the background corresponding to the appropriate learning paths: WebLogic, Oracle, Java, and UNIX.

WebLogic Training - Distance-learning or at Your Office
SYS-ED Oracle WebLogic courses are provided over the Internet through a distance-learning delivery medium or classroom instruction on-site at the client location. Client location courses can include the identical workshops, case studies, and hands-on approach as the distance-learning service offered through the SYS-ED schedule.

For additional information including outlines, availability of private courses, references, and course customization, contact David Shapiro at 212-724-2094 or register online.
