Talk:Oracle WebLogic Server
|WikiProject Java||(Rated Start-class, Low-importance)|
The article should in some place describe what WebLogic *does* -- what it's for -- to those of us who have no idea.
Think version 4 should clarify "the acquisition?" I'm not very familiar with the product and came here to learn about it, and it took me a minute to realize BEA must've purchased WebLogic at some point.
The history of WebLogic, Inc, and its subsequent acquisition by BEA Systems, is discussed in the first paragraph of the History section. bob pasker 19:40, 15 July 2006 (UTC)
I reverted an earlier revision to my comment: "At this point, the founders worked together to pursue what was eventually to be called the Application Server" because I meant exactly what I said. The founders worked together on a project which was at the time not called an app server, but eventually would be. bob pasker 19:40, 15 July 2006 (UTC)
Why are there two different version sections (Version covering 5.0-current and WebLogic History covering 2-4)? Seems like they should be merged. Pimlottc 16:02, 1 September 2006 (UTC)
I agree that this "definition" tells me nothing. I was in the IT field as recently as the 90's and I have no clue after reading this, what Weblogic is/does. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 22:29, 29 February 2008 (UTC)
Is this 'encyclopedic' language? : and was called T3Server (a bastardization of 3-Tier Server). Don't get me wrong; I don't mind. But it sounds a little... out of place.!!
T3 is a corruption of 3 tier
- I was told by an ex-BEA employee providing an Oracle WebLogic course that T3 referred to JDBC type3, which is what WebLogic was trying to be at the time, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JDBC_driver#Type_3_Driver_-_Network-Protocol_Driver rather than a linguistic corruption of "3 tier architecture".

Merge page histories
Oracle Weblogic Server was created by copy-paste from BEA WebLogic rather than by moving, because of which the histories are split in two. The below is an attempt to capture the split histories, so it can be merged.
Oracle Weblogic Server
- 16 October 2008 - Created by User:Nileshpj by copying from BEA WebLogic, probably this version of 9 October 2008.
- 22 June 2004 - Created by 220.127.116.11
- 9 January 2009 - Final edit before getting redirected
- 14 January 2009 - Redirected to Oracle Weblogic Server by User:Osja
- Number of edits between 9 October 2008 and 9 January 2009 - 5
- Number of edits in the same period for Oracle Weblogic Server - 7
- I have merged the histories. The sequence now is from old to new - all versions of BEA WebLogic from start (2004) to the version of 9 October 2008, followed by all versions of Oracle Weblogic Server from start (16 October 2008) to present. Versions of BEA WebLogic after 9 October 2008 still exist in that article's history for reference. Jay (talk) 12:50, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
Shouldn't the title be capitalized Oracle WebLogic Server (capitalizing the L in WebLogic) for consistency? (I tried to edit, but saw no option to rename the article.) Loresayer (talk) 18:12, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
