The WebLogic 12c release comes as the Java 7 language specification begins to take hold and as cloud deployments continues to rise.
“The Cloud application foundation is the underlying application infrastructure for all of our Fusion middleware, and WebLogic12c is the cornerstone of that infrastructure,” Mike Lehmann, senior director of product management, Oracle told InternetNews.com.
According to Lehmann, one of the biggest new features in WebLogic 12c is full support for JavaEE 6. He noted that Oracle has been adding some JavaEE 6 APIs to minor WebLogic 11g updates to provide some incremental features.
“12c has the full complement of JavaEE 6, including RESTful Web Services, lightweight Web Services with EJB and the most desired feature which is context and dependency injection,” Lehmann said.
