How to Configure WebLogic Server to Send a Notification When Its Configuration is Changed

My former collegue, Java maven (no not that one, this one) and friend Pierluigi contacted me about my post regarding the Weblogic Security Audit Provider. As always Pier is very political correct ;)


To my positive surprise he found a great solution for the limitation of the security audit provider. He discovered a way to configure WebLogic server to send a notification when it’s configuration is changed [Knowledge Base ID 1377733.1].

Which is awesome if you have a large Oracle environment and maintenance team and want to keep track of all the changes. Wish we knew this last year at the huge envuironment I was working then.

His blogpost contains all the code, scripts, etc so go and check it out!!! :)

And to end with his favourite quote:

Failure is not an option

It’s a cold winter in the Netherlands and that probably means to cold for Rob Zoeteweij for riding on his Harley. (joke shamelessly stolen from Jacco ;-) )

So he found time to publish a 40 page paper called “Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Facts and Concepts” on his blog. Go check it out!


What's cooking at Oracle - Rob Zoeteweij

Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c was released October 2011 and introduced a complete rewritten framework for monitoring and managing Data Centre components.

Where Oracle Enterprise Manager evolved from just a Database Monitoring tool (EM 10.1) to include Middleware targets and targets within the complete Oracle Software Stack and even non-Oracle targets (like MS SQL Server, IBM Websphere, BEA Systems, Storage and Network devices and others…), to a Grid supporting and Database Lifecycle support tool. Enterprise Manager 12c now supports Lifecycle Management throughout the complete Oracle Software and Hardware Stack (Enterprise Manager OPS Center 12c), delivering “Application to Disk” monitoring, advanced management for Oracle Hardware, Virtualized environments and fully supporting Oracle’s Cloud concepts including PaaS (Platform as a Service), IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), DBaaS (Database as a Service), MWaaS (Middleware as a Service) and several more being announced (Schema as a Service, Testing as a Service).

Even more than before, encouraging…

Good explanation and necessary command examples from Mark Nelson on his blog RedStack how to get Oracle artifacts into a Maven repository and refer to these artifacts as a dependency during your builds.


If you want to build an application to run on the Fusion Middleware platform, you may find that you want to use some Oracle provided JAR files in your build process.  These may be things like API’s (interfaces) that are needed to compile, or client libraries that need to be bundled into the deployable application, or perhaps tools that are needed during build time, e.g. WLST or appc.

If you are using Maven to manage your build, it would be ideal to be able to use Maven coordinates to reference these Oracle artifacts, just like you do for any other kind of dependency.  But Oracle does not provide POM files for these artifacts – so what can we do?

Maven provides the ability to load any artifact into a Maven repository and to give it a set of coordinates.  This means that you can easily add the Oracle provided artifacts…

Service Bus 11g Development Cookbook

The Oracle Service Bus Development Cookbook as published on the Oracle SOA Community blog.

PaaS Community Blog

The Oracle Service Bus Development Cookbook is a book which contains more than 80 practical recipes to develop service- and message-oriented solutions on the Oracle Service Bus 11g.image

This cookbook is full of immediately usable recipes showing how to efficiently develop on the Oracle Service Bus. In addition to its cookbook style, which ensures the solutions are presented in a clear step-by-step manner, the explanations go into great detail, which makes it good learning material for everyone who has experience with the OSB and wants to improve. Most of the recipes are designed in such a way that each recipe is presented as a separate, standalone entity and reading of prior recipes is not required. The finished solution of each recipe is also made available electronically.

The 80+ recipes are organized into the following chapters (the digit behind the title showing the number of recipes in that chapter):

The making of the Oracle Service Bus 11g Development Cookbook

Nice background story from Guido Schmutz, the mastermind behind the Oracle Service Bus development cookbook. :-)

Enjoy IT - SOA, Java, Event-Driven Computing and Integration

4446OS_Oracle Service Bus 11g Developement Cookbook_FrontcoverAlmost a year ago I started to think about writing a cookbook for the Oracle Service Bus (OSB). I first discussed it with Mischa Kölliker, a colleague at Trivadis and he was happy to join the team. Next I have used the Oracle SOA and E2.0 Partner Community Forum in March 2011 to talk to Edwin Biemond and Eric Elzinga, two well-known OSB experts and Oracle ACE colleagues. Gladly they were as enthusiastic as me about putting together a book with lot’s of recipes of how to use the Oracle Service Bus in practice. They also introduced me to Jan van Zoggel, who joined the team as well. So the setup of the team of authors was complete: The Netherland – Switzerland 3:2 (could have been the final result of a football game).

I have then started to talk to Packt Publishing, the publisher of the book, about my idea…

Auto Discovery of Targets in EM12c

Very interesting blogpost from Rob Zoeteweij, make sure to download his instructions (PDF) regarding the Auto Discovery feature of targets in Enterprise Manager 12c.

What's cooking at Oracle - Rob Zoeteweij

Using Enterprise Manager 11 and earlier, you needed to install an Agent any time a new Server was introduced in your datacentre.

Then after you would have created a new Database or any other Target Type, you would need to perform a discovery using the Agent that was monitoring the specific server.

Starting with Enterprise Manager 12c your Targets can get discovered automatically even if no Agent has been installed yet.
