Oracle WebLogic Portal

 

Oracle WebLogic Portal, formerly BEA WebLogic Portal, is the best-of-breed portal framework for creating highly interactive composite applications in a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) environment with a powerful, integrated set of design-time tools for Java developers and strong support for standards. 


Oracle WebLogic Portal's framework provides reliable, performant, and personalized application delivery that engages customers, keeps infrastructure costs down, delivers solutions rapidly, and standardizes application architecture. The integrated development environment provided by WebLogic Portal includes a rich, graphical environment for developing portal-based solutions. Web-based configuration tools, content publication wizards, and other run-time tools enable distributed portal management. Once built, your portals can be readily adapted when your business needs change, all at significantly lower costs. Thanks to its unified portal framework, simplified portal lifecycle management, and modular portal business services and portal extensions, Oracle WebLogic Portal simplifies, personalizes, and lowers the cost of customer, partner, and employee access to information, applications, and business processes.

 

The Oracle Weblogic11g Application Server product line is the industry's most comprehensive Java platform for developing, deploying, and integrating enterprise applications. It provides the foundation for application grid architecture, enabling enterprises to outperform their competitors while minimizing operational costs.

 

Java

 

Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE) is the single best platform for the development of desktop, server and high-end embedded devices, and it is the most versatile runtime for Java as well as many other languages.

 

Java Platform, Micro Edition (Java ME) is the best chosen software for resource-constrained embedded devices. It has seen widespread deployment across mobile handsets and digital television devices.

 

Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) is the industry standard for delivering secure, robust, scalable, multi-platform applications and services across the enterprise, from server and desktop applications to wireless and wireline applications.

 

Service-Oriented Architectures

 

Oracle Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) Suite is a comprehensive, hot-pluggable software suite to build, deploy and manage SOAs. The components of the suite benefit from common capabilities including consistent tooling, a single deployment and management model, end-to-end security and unified metadata management.

 

This easy-to-use, re-use focused, unified application development tooling and end-to-end lifecycle management support further reduces development and maintenance cost and complexity. Its hot-pluggable architecture helps businesses lower upfront costs by allowing maximum re-use of existing IT investments and assets, regardless of the environment (OS, application server, etc.) they run in, or the technology they were built upon.

 

Rapid adoption of SOA is resulting in extensive service enabling of IT systems. The only way for achieving IT goals of lower costs, greater efficiency, and increased visibility is through rapidly assembling these services into modular and flexible business applications. Oracle SOA Suite 11g makes it simplest to build, deploy, and manage SOA with complete, open, integrated, and best-in-class technology.
