Oracle WebLogic DM is comming!
WebLogic 10gR3 surfaced a preview of server profiles, and some of the underpinnings to support the profiles which were put in place. For example, the console is already capable of dealing with the profiles (i.e., the absence of a full EE server). So a WebLogic DM Server profile can coexist inside of a WebLogic domain, alongside an EE profile. Both profiles will share the same OSGi-based microkernel, the management capabilities, and lifecycle support. The common microkernel and the investment in modularity allow for examining other packaging options – for example, a messaging profile.
- OSGi provides a lightweight and robust service oriented modularity framework for Java.
Enabler for the next generation of Java server infrastructure
- WebLogic DM is a server environment that allows users to provision infrastructure services based on their application dependencies
