July 2008 VIJUG Meeting – Oracle Fusion Middleware


With many Oracle users in town as well as the recent merger of BEA and Oracle there are a few questions lingering in the user community about the future of elements like WebLogic, OC4J and JRockit. Lets see if we can get all our questions answered.

Oracle Fusion Middleware now and in the future

The addition of the industry leading BEA middleware products into Oracle Fusion Middleware advances Oracle’s middleware strategy and further strengthens key areas of the Oracle Fusion Middleware family. In this session you will learn more details about how these products fit into Oracle’s overall middleware strategy along with plans for their near-term and long-term evolution. Available information about product packaging/licensing and adoption strategies for existing Oracle middleware and BEA customers will also be shared.

  1. Wow… time flies. The meeting is already over a week ago. Dev did a tremendous job guiding us through the merger history (buying spree) of Oracle and the successful integration of such a wide array of products. It is all culminating now with the BEA acquistion giving them a new JEE application server with weblogic as well as a full JVM with JRockit. Oracle has got big plans for both. For your interest he provided us with the presentation pdf to download for you all.

    It is truly amazing what a huge eco system of components Oracle has in its hands. I wish they would cooperate more with the open source community. Sure they donated toplink to eclipse and there JSF components to Apache MyFaces. But now there is a truly awesome opportunity to blow everybodies expectations away. What about open sourcing JRockit and/or WebLogic? That would be awe inspiring. However I dont expect that to happen. Most likely I will continue to use OpenJDK…

    but I am going to ask anyway .. So Larry, can you (J) rock it and surprise us all?
