After many years on WordPress, I have decided to move to a new platform. I have started a new blog at https://weblogic.cafe where I will be writing about WebLogic, Docker, Kubernetes, Istio, OpenShift, Java, Helidon, that kind of thing! I hope to see you there!
Wercker’s new Steps Store just went live and you can read all about it here:
In case you don’t know – Wercker is Oracle’s cloud-based (SaaS) CI/CD platform, which you can use for free at http://www.wercker.com. Steps are reusable parts that can be used in continuous delivery pipelines. They are almost all open source and free to use too. We also have a non-free tier which we call “Oracle Container Pipelines” which gives you dedicated resources to run your pipelines.
I am very happy to be able to announce that we have just released and open sourced the Oracle WebLogic Server Kubernetes Operator, which I have been working on with a great team of people for the last few months!
You can find the official announcement on the WebLogic Server blog and the code is on GitHub at https://github.com/oracle/weblogic-kubernetes-operator. This initial release is a “Technology Preview” which we really hope people will be interested in playing with and giving feedback. We have already had some great feedback from our small group of testers who have been playing with it for the last couple of weeks, and we are very, very appreciative for their input. We have some great plans for the operator going forward.
In case you missed it, Oracle has certified WebLogic Server on Kubernetes. You can read all the details here:
I’m sure many of you have already heard the news, but in case you missed it, you might want to read all about it here!
“Oracle today announced the general availability of Java SE 9 (JDK 9), Java Platform Enterprise Edition 8 (Java EE 8) and the Java EE 8 Software Development Kit (SDK). “

Hello Readers, it has been a long time between drinks, and I apologize for not posting for a while. I have certainly missed you all. I have been working on some internal projects at Oracle for the last couple of years, and I have not really had much to share. But now I am doing a lot more work that is shareable, and hopefully interesting too, so I am going to start posting again!
I will leave all of the old posts there for prosperity, but the new posts that I am planning will be all about cloudy topics (isn’t everything these days?). I plan to talk about things that I am working with like Docker, Kubernetes, Go, Java 9, Prometheus, ELK, Grafana, Swarm, Compose, Minikube, functions, registries, SRE.. that kind of thing!
I look forward to talking to you all again real soon.
For those who are interested in the Chef and Puppet sample code we published on github, please enjoy this video:
In case you missed the public announcement made on Stackoverflow, OTN and on JDBC Forum – Oracle is now making JDBC and UCP drivers available in our Maven repository (https://maven.oracle.com).
