With the new Oracle Fusion Middleware packages coming into their own, this book becomes an even more valuable resource for the aspiring WebLogic installer and administrator.
The books could have won a fifth star if it had more examples and usage scenarios for the Jython based WebLogic Scripting Tool (WLST,) a language shared with other competing tools such as WebSphere Application Server (WAS) and JBoss for functional scripting.
It expects you to program on the server and doesn't detail out some of the specifics well enough to know what you need to do implement other ways.
It has long winded explanations for trivial stuff (fillers) but skims over some critical details.
The chapters about web services assume that you read through 8 chapters on a mostly unrelated topic, instead of summarizing the details or referencing it earlier on, so you have to search through the book to find other bits of information.
As a result I spent 2 days trying to find out information, and failed to discover what I needed to make it work.
Consulting professionals are often asked for the best practices for the implementation of messaging, web services, EJBs, deployment, etc. This book provides many of those answers.
I highly recommend this book to those who have a basic knowledge of WebLogic Server, but want to increase their expertise in a rapid fashion.
This book is a graduate-level course for best using WebLogic in the enterprise setting. It addresses a wide range of very complex architectural challenges that typically surround and impact the use of WebLogic in the enterprise and goes well beyond the web-available user guide to provide that kind of insight that solves big challenges. It will show you how to set up your architectural theory to get the best performance from WebLogic, and it will help you to coach your team so that all the pieces fit together.
When your system gets to a fundamental size and responsibility, whether you have teams of programmers providing different applications, are running transactions across the web, or simply handling massive amounts of messaging, this book becomes a necessary backbone for structuring the right environment.
I am not clear who the intended audience is for this book. While well written and informative, I cannot think of anyone I know who would want to read this book because it covers too many subjects that are not necessarily going to be of interest to one person. I gave up after 150 pages.
After 150 pages I switched to Oracle WebLogic Server 11G Handbook by Sam Alapati. I am only 60 pages into the new book, but for learning web logic admin I think this other book is more focused.
If you want to learn Java EE, I used the free Oracle Tutorial on-line as well as buying a printed copy of the first volume (Java EE 6 Tutorial - Basic Concepts). Very good for a general Java EE overview.
Normally I do not mention other books in a review, but since this book covers Web Logic and Java I thought I would list other books on the subject.
Again, well written (at least the first 150 pages) but I am not really clear who was the intended audience. Perhaps with a new cover that explains what is in the book and who should read it, this book would be a 4 or 5 star book.
