This talk will cover some of the core areas in the WebLogic server and ongoing improvements in those areas. Specifically, the areas we intend to cover are Core/Clustering, JMS, WebServices, Diagnostics, Pub/Sub and FastSwap.

We will begin by explaining some of the recent improvements in Clustering such as Singleton Services, Auto Service Migration, MAN/WAN session replication. We will cover improvements in the JMS area around .NET client API, JMS Auto and Manual service migration, SAF, unit of order and unit of work message groups. We also plan on covering WebServices JAX-WS enhancements. We will also talk about the WebLogic diagnostic framework. The WebLogic Diagnostics Framework (WLDF) gives administrators and IT managers the ability to analyze their server operating environment using a set of components that generate information from WebLogic servers and the resources, including applications, deployed on the servers. The resulting data can then be gathered for analysis, and later persisted for long-term storage. In WLS 10.3 we are delivering a HTTP Pub/Sub Server which is a channels based publish/subscribe mechanism for web based clients to send and receive asynchronous messages over HTTP. The Pub/Sub Server is based on the Bayeux protocol proposed by the Comet project. It works with Dojo toolkit on the client side. With this HTTP pub/sub server, you can have multiple clients connect to a server, subscribe to channels and publish or listen for messages on these channels. Clients can concurrently share data with other clients on other servers for synchronous collaboration and allowing users to share experiences and work with other users. The current implementation leverages WLS JMS messaging architecture on the server side (e.g. distributed destination, JMS cluster, indexed subscribers etc.) for reliable communication. Finally we will talk about FastSwap feature introduced in WebLogic server to allow the developers to deploy any code changes in a single class or set of classes without the loss of server context. FastSwap is a "change-aware classloader" based technique used to upgrade a deployed application in production without needing to take BEA WebLogic Server offline. When a class changes, the system automatically loads the new class and the application state is maintained in the running application.
