    In this small post I will show you how to deploy automatically some artifacts of your build into bea_logo1Weblogic 10.3 by using the weblogic-maven-plugin

    This plugin will support various tasks within the Weblogic 8.1 and 9.x environment. Such tasks as deploy, undeploy,clientgen,servicegen, and appc are supported as well as many others. The plugin uses exposed API's that are subject to change but have been tested in 8.1 SP 4-6 and 9.0 - 9.2 MP3. There are two versions of the plugin to support the two environments based on differences in the JDK. The 9.x version is currently being refactored to support the standard JSR supported deployment interface

    I found&160; this time a&160; new way to deploy Maven artefacts using the Oracle Weblogic Ant API!

    If you remember my previous post, there is many ways to deploy your war/ear to Oracle Weblogic

    1. Using Oracle Weblogic development mode, a mode in which a simple copy of your files in a specific autodeploy directory trigger the update/install of these
    2. Using Maven Cargo, this work only if your Oracle Weblogic container is local (see here) on the same machine, where Apache Maven is running
    3. Using a very old Maven plugin (2008), local and remote container are supported, but our builds were sometimes hanging during pre integration phase for no apparent reasons.

    And now using the official ANT API of Oracle, by far the MOST stable of all!

  • Here is 3 different way to control the lifetime a local Tomcat 7 container using Apache Maven. A typical scenario would be to start a servlet container prior to running integration tests (Selenium, SAHI or using any other framework you can think of )

    With the following examples, you will be able to start an instance of Tomcat 7 running your web application in the pre-integration-test phase and stop the instance in the post-integration-test phase. You can also decide to use an embedded container like Jetty instead.
