WebLogic Deploy Tooling (WDT) makes it easy to stand up WebLogic environments and perform domain lifecycle operations in a repeatable fashion based on a metadata model that can be treated as source and evolve as the project evolves.
Many organizations use WebLogic Server, with or without other Oracle Fusion Middleware components, to run their enterprise applications. And, as more and more of these organizations move toward Continuous Delivery of their applications, the importance of automated configuration application deployment grows. This automation is often implemented using the WebLogic Scripting Tool (WLST) configuration and deployment scripting language, but this is challenging. Such scripts must be carefully updated as the project evolves or the project is deployed to different environments, such as test to production.
WebLogic Deploy Tooling removes the need for most WebLogic Server deployments to rely on hand-coded WLST scripts for automating routine domain creation and application deployment tasks. It lets you write a declarative, metadata model, describing the domain and applications (with their dependent resources), and provides single-purpose tools that perform domain lifecycle operations based on the content of the model. It also lets you specify simple mutations suitable for moving your model between different environments, such as between test and production.
WDT provides several single-purpose tools, all exposed as shell scripts (for both Windows and UNIX), that can:
