Oracle WebLogic Server 12c Advanced System Administration Training

5 days


This 5-day course is designed for WebLogic 12c Administrators and Operations staff that have a basic understanding of core WebLogic administration tasks. This class builds on the foundation of the Oracle WebLogic 12c System Administration class. Students should already know how to install WebLogic server and create a domain. Students need a basic understanding of service configuration (JDBC, JMS and JNDI) and application deployment. Students should also understand the key concepts of WebLogic clustering.

Skills Gained

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Automate key administration tasks using JMX and a variety of tools.
  • Configure advanced features of JMS and JDBC in simple and clustered environments.
  • Migrate applications and domain configurations from dev to test to prod environments.
  • Partition WebLogic network usage.
  • Install alternative security providers
  • Create high fault-tolerant geographically distributed clusters.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
