To stay ahead of the technology curve, financial companies require the power, flexibility, and scalability of latest enterprise technologies for 24/7 services. Rakuten Card, one of the largest credit card companies in Japan, recently renewed its web front-end systems utilizing Java EE. This session provides answers to the following questions: Among the myriad of available technologies, why did it choose Oracle WebLogic and Oracle Exadata, managed by Oracle Enterprise Manager? How did it drive this huge project to completion in only six months, using only in-house development? What were the key success factors in launching and operating this mission-critical service? Hear about its extraordinary improvement results and how its selections are effective for financial enterprise systems.

17. 17 5 Big Issues to Apply New JEE Architecture

18. 18 1. Policies: Case of Rakuten § Internal Development First, no outsourcing to external SI vendors. (Group All) § Financial businesses are also the target for the application of this policy. Educate NO ORDER & Develop Rare Case for Financial Systems in Japan In-House Development External Vendors

19. 19 2. Education: Read, Read, Read! RECOMMENDED for WebLogic 12c Good & Only Japanese EE 6 book Start from HERE 4th Edition Good Pocket Reference! For NetBeans 7 with EE 6

20. 20 2. Education: Online Materials Original Tutorial for Newbies (Start here!) NetBeans Java EE docs for Advanced Information

21. 21 2. Education: Simplify to Learn Old Architecture New Architecture Too difficult to learn many non-standard old technologies Simple & Easy!

22. 22 3. Architecture: Apply EE 6 Specs Rich Clients (no business logics) Call Web Presentation (no business logics) Business Logic (no presentations) Data Access JPA EJB JSF DBs Automatic Transaction Java FX JTA Messaging JMS MQ Connection RMI-IIOP Other Servers EMail JAX MTA JavaMail Call Call Call Call Call There's no rich client

23. 23 3. Architecture: Simplified Core L7 Balancer Front Real-time Web Site A Web Site B Internal Site Proxy Reverse Batch Exec Front Batch Services (aka APIs) System B Gateway Database System C Sub Proc

24. Local Weblogic Server instance Code and Test with Fast-swap 24 4. Environment: Ease of Dev. Centralized DEV DB = X X

25. 25 4. Environment: Easy Startup 2. Download Code from Repository 3. Install JDK, IDE, App servers -> Build -> Run on the local terminal 1. Join a project. 4. Refer JIRA tickets for tasks

26. 26 5. Test: Full Auto Testing &Validation. 1. Auto PULL Management Server 2. Auto Build & Test 3. Auto 4. Report Validate Hourly ZERO Violations

27. 27 Agenda 1. Java EE with WebLogic and Exadata for Our Financial Systems Overview 2. Starting with GlassFish, Migrated to WebLogic 3. Hard Business Operations, with the Power of the WebLogic and Exadata

28. 28 In Mid 2011, We Didn’t Have WebLogic 12c Yet § Chart of the mid 2011 Java EE app servers Vendor App Server EE 5 Servers EE 6 Servers Open Source GlassFish 2.1.1 3.1.1 Oracle WebLogic 10.3 - IBM WebSphere 7.0 8.0 Red Hat JBoss 6.0 7.0 (partially) § We wanted to apply Java EE 6 for our new system, but not released. § We decided to use GlassFish 3.1.1 until the EE 6 applied WebLogic (12c) released.

29. 29 Impact of the Migrating within the Project § Non-Interchangeable Development Code GlassFish à WebLogic – Different container behaviors. – Non Java EE, different each server special APIs. § Scheduled Impacts for Migrating WebLogic Configurations – Cluster configurations for high availabilities. – Other setting adjustments. – Bug checking and applying patches. – Connecting Oracle Enterprise Manager.

30. 30 Investigation of the Differences Code Base BEA WebLogic 6.0 based + Improvements Felix OSGi modular based kernel Web Container WebLogic Original Tomcat Container EJB Container WebLogic Original GlassFish Original Remote Invocation T3, RMI-IIOP, SOAP RMI-IIOP, SOAP Transaction Processing WebLogic Original GlassFish Original Persistence Container WebLogic Original TopLink Based Runtime JRockit, Oracle JDK Oracle JDK

31. 31 Schedule for Migrating from GlassFish to WebLogic Java EE 6 Development with GlassFish Migrating to WebLogic (12c) Development Operations Java EE Development with WebLogic (12c) Production Release Configuration of Java EE 6 applied WebLogic (12c) and Enterprise Manager (12c) (Dec, 2011) Production Release Finally the new WL was released at the end of 2011

32. 32 Non-Interchangeable Point: 1. Container Initialization § Single WAR including JSF and EJBs – GlassFish 1. EJB initialize (@Startup) 2. JSF (Servlet) initialize (HttpServlet#init()) – WebLogic 1. JSF (Servlet) initialize (HttpServlet#init()) 2. EJB initialize (@Startup) § Inverse initialization pattern – Affected for the server initializations. – Absorbed with the wrapper classes

33. 33 New Functions of Moving from GF to WL 12c * Basically We Didn’t Use These Functions

34. 34 New Function: What WL 12c Knows About GF Config Glassfish Weblogic Support context-root context-root security-role-mapping security-role-assignment role-name role-name principle-name principle-name group-name principle-name session-config session-descriptor session-manager:manager-properties:reapIntervalSeconds invalidation-interval-seconds session-manager:manager-properties:maxSessions max-in-memory-sessions session-manager:manager-properties:directory persistent store dir session-manager:manager-properties:timeoutSeconds timeout-secs ejb-ref ejb-ref-description ejb-ref-name ejb-ref-name jndi-name jndi-name resource-ref resource-description res-ref-name res-ref-name jndi-name jndi-name resource-env-ref resource-env-description resource-env-ref-name resource-env-ref-name jndi-name jndi-name class-loader container-descriptor delegate prefer-web-inf-classes jsp-config jsp-descriptor checkInterval page-check-seconds keepgenerated keepgenerated scratchdir working-dir * Basically We Didn’t Use These Functions

35. 35 Non-Interchangeable Point: 2. Remote Invocation § Different EJB remote invocation operations. Wrapped for absorbing. § GlassFish (5 properties, no security) Properties prop = new Properties(); prop.setProperty(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, “com.sun.enterprise.naming.SerialInitContextFactory”); prop.setProperty(Context.URL_PKG_PREFXIES, “com.sun.enterprise.naming”); prop.setProperty(Context.STATE_FACTORIES “ ryImpl” prop.setProperty("org.omg.CORBA.ORBInitialHost", “theservername”); prop.setProperty("org.omg.CORBA.ORBInitialPort", “3700”); Context context = new InitialContext(prop); ARemote remote = (ARemote) context.lookup(“java:global/…”); § WebLogic (4 properties, with security) Properties prop = new Properties(); prop.setProperty(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, “weblogic.jndi.WLInitialContextFactory”); prop.setProperty(Context.PROVIDER_URL, “t3://theservername:7001”); prop.setProperty(Context.SECRITY_PRINCIPAL, “weblogic”); prop.setProperty(Context.SECURITY_CREDENTIALS, “thepassword”); Context context = new InitialContext(prop); ARemote remote = (ARemote) context.lookup(“java:global/…”);

40. 40 Fast Deployment Operations WebLogic Server Single WAR for API WebLogic Managed Server Real-Time Batch Deploy Deploy For Management WebLogic Management Console Same WAR, for different servers. Automatic multi server deploying

41. 41 Non-stop “Production Redeployment” WebLogic Server WebLogic New Module Request Dispatcher Old Module Request with current session Requests Request with new session Auto versioning, Non-stop redeployment WebLogic Managed Server WAR Automatic multi versioning, parallel operation Old modules will be un-deployed gracefully when all old sessions are invalidated.

42. Managing Servers by Oracle Enterprise Manager (EM) 42 Introduced Oracle Enterprise Manager Easy to Find Performance & Status

43. 43 Our Requests for WebLogic and Exadata § For WebLogic, – Appliance of latest Java EE specs ASAP!! § We know the WebLogic is the basement of the Oracle Fusion Middleware, but we want the latest EE for our products. § Yes, we’re waiting the next WebLogic version supporting JEE7. § For Exadata – Make patches easy to operate § Huge costs for updating quarterly update patch. § Complicated procedures for non-stop upgrading. § Hoping for the next generation updating technology.
