Welcome to BEA WebLogic Server 8 For Dummies. Whether you are an
administrator, a developer, a manager, or all of the above, you will find
something in this book to make your job easier.
WebLogic is the most widely used application server on the market today.
You can use WebLogic in large or small projects and to develop both traditional
client-server as well as web-based applications.
This book gives you a broad understanding of BEA WebLogic Server.
The main audience consists of developers and administrators, but anyone
involved in a WebLogic project will benefit from reading this book. Managers
can gain an overview of the components that make up their system. Quality
assurance personnel can benefit from the same understanding.
For developers, this book shows quick examples to get you up and running
in many of the technologies supported by WebLogic. Rather than give you
extensive application examples, I focus on short, easy-to-follow examples
than can become the starting point for something more complex. For administrators,
I step you through many common WebLogic tasks and the configuration
settings you should use.
Finally, everyone should have an understanding of how the components of a
web application fit together and what WebLogic can do for your application.
This book gives you that viewpoint too.
