What is Oracle WebLogic Server for OCI?

Do you know, Oracle WebLogic Server for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) is an efficient way to quickly provision a Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) application environment in OCI, which includes an Oracle WebLogic Server domain? This solution is accessible as a set of applications in the OCI Marketplace.

With Oracle WebLogic Server for OCI, you can create a domain that incorporates Java Required Files (JRF) components. The platform is compatible with several editions of Oracle WebLogic Server, including the Standard Edition, the Enterprise Edition and the WebLogic Suite.

Oracle WebLogic Server for OCI supports Oracle WebLogic Server 14c ( and Oracle WebLogic Server 12c ( release of Oracle WebLogic Server for OCI.

The supported billing options for this solution are Universal Credits (UCM) or Bring Your Own License (BYOL). Oracle WebLogic Server Standard Edition is available only as BYOL.

Let’s take a closer look at the various components that make up Oracle WebLogic Server for OCI.

Oracle WebLogic Server

Oracle WebLogic Server itself is at the core of this offering. A domain in Oracle WebLogic Server consists of one administration server and one or more managed servers that can host Java application deployments.


Oracle WebLogic Server for OCI is accessed through the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Marketplace, where it is presented as a collection of applications.

Resource Manager

Resource Manager is used by Oracle WebLogic Server for OCI to provision cloud instances that support the WebLogic Server domain.


Oracle WebLogic Server for OCI creates Oracle Linux compute instances automatically, and installs the necessary software while also creating the domain configuration. It supports specific shapes, including Standard (VM.Standard2.x, VM.Standard.E2.x, BM.Standard2.x, BM.Standard.E2.x, BM.Standard3.64), Flexible (VM.Standard.E3.Flex, VM.Standard.E4.Flex, VM.Standard3.Flex), and Optimized (BM.Optimized3, VM.Optimized3.Flex). Each compute instance is made up of three volumes, including the boot volume, block volume (domain volume), and block volume (middleware volume).

Virtual Cloud Network

Oracle WebLogic Server for OCI can automatically create a Virtual Cloud Network (VCN) and subnets for a new WebLogic Server domain, or users can create their own VCN and subnets. By default, subnets span the entire region in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

Load Balancer

when creating a domain, Oracle WebLogic Server for OCI can automatically configure a load balancer in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and distribute traffic across the servers in the domain.


An existing database in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is required to create an Oracle WebLogic Server domain that includes the Java Required Files (JRF) components. Users can choose either the Oracle Autonomous Database or the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Database. Oracle WebLogic Server for OCI supports the same database versions and drivers as those for on-premise WebLogic Server installations.


Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Vault enables the management of sensitive information using vaults, keys, and secrets when creating an Oracle WebLogic Server domain.


Oracle WebLogic Server for OCI can configure a domain running WebLogic Server 12c to use Oracle Identity Cloud Service for authentication. It does this by configuring an App Gateway in Oracle Identity Cloud Service and provisioning each compute instance in the domain with the App Gateway software appliance. The App Gateway acts as a reverse proxy, intercepting HTTP requests to the domain and ensuring that users are authenticated with Oracle Identity Cloud Service. If users enable integration with Oracle Identity Cloud Service for a domain, they must also enable a load balancer for the domain.
