Owned by Oracle Corporation, Oracle WebLogic consists of a JavaEE platform product family that includes:
Prior to co-founding WebLogic, Inc., in September 1995, Paul Ambrose and Carl Resnikoff had developed (pre-JDBC) Oracle, Sybase, and Microsoft SQL Server database-drivers for Java under the name dbKona, as well as a "three tier" server to permit applets to connect to these databases.
This WebLogic 1.48 server had the name T3Server (a bastardization of "3-Tier Server"). Concurrently, Pitman and Pasker had worked on network-management tools written in Java. Pasker had written an SNMP stack in Java and a W32 native method for ICMP ping, while Pitman worked on applets to display the management data.
The 1.48 server version had (among other hidden features) the ability to extend it by modifying a dispatcher and adding a handler for different types of messages. Pasker talked Ambrose into sending him the source code for the server, and Pasker extended it so that applets could make SNMP and PING requests on the network, and display the results.
At this point, the founders worked together to pursue what eventually became the "Application Server".
BEA Systems acquired WebLogic, Inc. in 1998, following which it became BEA WebLogic. Oracle acquired BEA in 2008, following which it became Oracle WebLogic.

James Arthur Gosling, O.C., Ph.D. (born May 19, 1955 near Calgary, Alberta, Canada) is a famous software developer, best known as the father of the Java language.
In 1977, James Gosling received a B.Sc in Computer Science from the University of Calgary. In 1983, he earned a Ph.D in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University, and his doctoral thesis was titled "The Algebraic Manipulation of Constraints".
While working towards his doctorate, he wrote a version of emacs (gosmacs), and before joining Sun Microsystems he built a multi-processor version of Unix while at Carnegie Mellon University, as well as several compilers and mail systems.
Since 1984, Gosling has been with Sun Microsystems. He is generally credited as the inventor of the Java programming language in 1991. He created the original design of Java and implemented its original compiler and virtual machine. For this achievement he was elected to the United States National Academy of Engineering.
He has also made major contributions to several other software systems, such as NeWS and Gosling Emacs. He also cowrote the "bundle" program, a utility thoroughly detailed in Brian Kernighan and Rob Pike's book The Unix Programming Environment.
In 2007, he was made an Officer of the Order of Canada. The Order is Canada's highest civilian honour. Officers are the second highest grade.
