JRockit Virtual Edition
WebLogic Server Runs on Oracle VM Without OS
Oracle have announced that Oracle WebLogic Server 11g can now run on Oracle VM without the need for an operating system, thanks to the Oracle JRockit Virtual Edition. This new suite is called WebLogic Suite Virtualization Option.
In a press release, Oracle claim that Oracle JRockit Virtual Edition enhances the performance and functionality of Oracle WebLogic Server 11g in virtualized environments and, by eschewing the operating system, Oracle WebLogic Server on JRockit Virtual Edition frees up system resources.
Oracle have also launched Oracle Virtual Assembly Builder, which provides a framework for capturing the configuration of existing software components and packaging them as self-contained building blocks.
