    Debugging Weblogic Authentication

    Enterprises often centrally manage login information and group memberships (identity).  Many systems use this information to achieve Single Sign On (SSO) functionality, for example. Surprisingly, access to the Weblogic Server Console is often not centrally managed. This session will explain why centralizing management of these identities not only increases security, but can also reduce operational cost and even increase developer productivity. The session will demonstrate several methods for debugging authentication using an external LDAP server in order to lower the bar to apply this pattern. This technically-oriented presentation will be especially useful for people working in operations who are responsible for managing Weblogic Servers.

    Real-Time Service Monitoring and ExplorationThere is a great deal of value in knowing which services are deployed and correctly running on an Oracle SOA Suite or Service Bus instance. This session will explain and demonstrate how to retrieve this data using JMX and the available Managed Beans on Weblogic. You will learn how the data can be retrieved using existing Java APIs, and how to explore dependencies between Service Bus and SOA Suite. You'll also learn how the retrieved data can be used to create a simple dashboard or even detailed reports.

    New APIs and Tools for Application Development in WebLogic 12c

    WebLogic Server 12.1.3 provides support for innovative APIs and productive Tools for application development, including APIs for JAX-RS 2.0, JSON Processing (JSR 353), WebSocket (JSR 356), and JPA 2.1. This session will provide an overview of each of these APIs, and then demonstrate how you can use these capabilities to simplify the development of server applications accessed by "rich" clients using lightweight web-based protocols such as REST and WebSocket.
