4 Introduction Accelerated customer adoption of service-oriented architecture (SOA) based enterprise solutions has created new challenges for IT organizations. Infrastructure requirements to support complex distributed application architectures through the application development lifecycle have grown significantly, leading to higher hardware and administrative costs. Operational challenges include ever greater provisioning, management and collaboration requirements across a distributed development and test environment and a growing need to streamline application development life cycles, especially in a geographically distributed application environment. Across the board, enterprise software development organizations are grappling with server sprawl, setup and provisioning overhead, and costly system failures. BEA and VMware are working together to address some of these challenges. BEA-delivered SOA solutions on VMware Infrastructure 3 drive tangible cost reductions and operational efficiency, while streamlining and automating the infrastructure capabilities to support the application life cycle from development through deployment. This white paper describes different ways that customers can use VMware Infrastructure to increase productivity and efficiency of their BEA WebLogic Server environments. After an introduction to the products themselves (BEA WebLogic Platform, BEA WebLogic Server Virtual Edition, and VMware Infrastructure 3), we discuss the advantages of using VMware Infrastructure for BEA WebLogic Server application development. Next, we describe the ways VMware Lab Manager further streamlines the WebLogic Server application development lifecycle; and finally, we explain how the new BEA WebLogic Server Virtual Edition (WLS-VE) can significantly increase the efficiency of deploying your WebLogic Server applications and SOA solutions on VMware Infrastructure.
5 Product Overview BEA WebLogic Platform BEA offers products and services that enable enterprises to achieve faster time-to-value for critical business applications using open standards, web services, and a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). BEA WebLogic Platform combines three core BEA WebLogic products Server, Integration, and Portal with the award-winning BEA Eclipse-based development environment, BEA Workshop, to provide the industry's most unified and reliable platform for developing and deploying enterprise Java applications and SOA services. The BEA WebLogic Platform which includes BEA WebLogic Server, BEA WebLogic Portal, BEA WebLogic Integration, BEA WebLogic Workshop, and BEA JRockit is the leading application platform suite for developers service-enabling their applications. The move to Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) has created the need to align IT and business needs to better serve customers, partners, employees, and shareholders. Proven over years of real enterprisecustomer deployments, BEA WebLogic Server keeps customers web applications, enterprise applications and services up and running even when they are deploying new versions, changing server configurations, or failing over within or across data centers. BEA WebLogic Server 10 provides developers with the tools and technologies they need to develop enterprise applications and services quickly while reducing the amount of repetitive boilerplate code they must write. In production, BEA WebLogic Server 10 provides operations teams with the tools they need: easily surfaced diagnostics information, a GUI administration console, command-line scripting, etc., to help keep services up and running. As the world's leading Java-based application server, BEA WebLogic Server includes zero-downtime features for enterprise-class reliability and uptime. A blended development model leveraging the best of open-source and commercial code helps roll new applications and services into production faster. BEA WebLogic server delivers superior performance, scalability, availability, and security capabilities across an enterprise Java application environment.
6 BEA WebLogic Server Virtual Edition (WLS-VE) BEA is the first software vendor to deliver efficient, innovative enablement of virtualization for Java applications and SOA services. BEA s technology optimizes Java software in virtualized environments using a two-pronged approach; bottom-up by facilitating higher resource utilization and performance at the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) layer when deployed on virtualization-enabled hardware; and topdown by enabling automated provisioning and resource management with adaptive control for enterprise Java applications. BEA LiquidVM, a hypervisor-enabled Java virtual machine, will be available in a bundle called BEA WebLogic Server Virtual Edition, comprising BEA WebLogic Server and BEA LiquidVM. This product builds on the solid foundation of BEA WebLogic Server to enable Java applications to run more efficiently on virtualized hardware. BEA WebLogic Server Virtual Edition is supported on VMware ESX Server. BEA WebLogic Liquid Operations Control (LOC) center is the management and control software for managing any Java application in a virtualized or non-virtualized environment. LOC allows for dynamic resource control of both BEA WebLogic-based applications and standard Java applications capable of running on BEA LiquidVM. BEA LiquidVM is the world s first and only JVM that can run on hypervisor-enabled x86 servers without a standard operating system, so that Java applications can run directly on the virtualization layer. BEA LiquidVM actually eliminates each Java application s operating system. Combined with the management of the hardware by VMware ESX server, the operating system is no longer needed and is removed from the entire application software stack. This approach allows BEA LiquidVM to deliver higher resource utilization and enhanced scalability compared to standard virtual machines running the full operating system and Java application stack.
7 VMware Infrastructure 3 VMware Infrastructure is the most widely deployed software suite for optimizing and managing industry standard IT environments through virtualization from the desktop to the data center. The only production-ready virtualization software suite, VMware Infrastructure is proven to deliver results at more than 20,000 customers of all sizes, used in a wide variety of environments and applications.

9 Solutions VMware Infrastructure Benefits for BEA WebLogic Server Application Development VMware virtualization technology allows multiple operating systems and software applications to run concurrently as individual virtual machines on a single X86 computer. These virtual machines encapsulate entire physical systems including hardware configuration, operating system and applications into a self-contained package that runs on any x86 system. The different ways in which VMware Infrastructure can benefit a BEA WebLogic Server environment include server containment, rapid provisioning, change management, datacenter optimization and enhanced high availability. The efficient development and deployment of enterprise Java applications on BEA WebLogic Server involve optimization of multiple stages of an application development life cycle. In traditional BEA WebLogic Server deployments, the need to provision separate systems for development, test and production environments results in significant server sprawl. All developers require dedicated systems and each test cycle requires dedicated servers assigned for the duration of the tests. These requirements lead to over-provisioning of physical machines, manageability and resource issues, all resulting in higher ownership and operational costs. VMware virtualization technology contains server sprawl by running BEA WebLogic Server instances in virtual machines consolidated onto fewer, highly scalable, highly-reliable enterprise-class servers. Hardware costs are lower and server utilization is increased to take advantage of the power of these high-end machines. In a typical BEA WebLogic Server application development environment, developers build enterprise environments using the BEA WebLogic Server software Development toolkit (SDK), BEA Workshop and other third party development tools. Each one needs a dedicated and isolated BEA WebLogic Server environment consisting of the BEA WebLogic Server admin and managed servers. Developers also need to use different versions of development tools, operating systems and other third party applications to complete an integrated Java-based enterprise application development environment. VMware Infrastructure provides the following key benefits in a BEA WebLogic Server application development environment: Host several development environments on the same physical hardware, eliminating the need for dedicated systems for developers while providing the isolation and security required. Use Golden Template images of stable and standardized environments that can be cloned to provision new developer instances of the BEA WebLogic Server application development and application environment. Templates ensure consistency across development images and facilitate efficient management of development environments. Develop and test Java application modules on different configurations of operating systems, development tools and BEA WebLogic Server versions, all running concurrently on the same physical hardware. Test users also need to run multiple BEA WebLogic Server environments, each consisting of its own complex application layers (databases, BEA WebLogic Servers, Web Servers etc.) and configurations. Different versions of the Java applications need to be tested as well. When deployed directly on a physical system, each one of these test environments requires its own set of dedicated hardware. VMware Infrastructure provides the following key benefits in a BEA WebLogic Server Test environment: Share the same physical system among multiple test environments, eliminating the need for dedicated test systems.
10 Recreate distributed BEA WebLogic Server production environment on a single physical system for test purposes. Pass BEA WebLogic Server application development images directly to test users and then back to development for problem replication and resolution. Create crash and burn test boxes. With the VMware Snapshot feature, it is simple to reset test images quickly to a clean state. Customers can easily set up tests that are destructive (Example: evaluate different development fixes against each other) and once the test or validation is completed can quickly roll back to the original state in minutes. Provision multiple test environments with multiple application and OS versions, patches or fixes (in any combination) and host them on the same physical system(s). This practice reduces the cost of deploying test environments by providing high levels of server containment. The hardware can be quickly deployed for a test and then returned to a shared pool. o o Evaluate performance differences in earlier builds versus later builds. Save multiple versions and stages of test images for regression testing, audit and rollback. Test patches on multiple configurations (OS, BEA WebLogic Server versions etc) concurrently that are hosted on the same physical system, minimizing infrastructure costs related to change management. Consolidate existing development, test and staging environments, freeing up datacenter capacity for new application deployments. VMware Lab Manager: Streamlining BEA WebLogic Server Application Development Enterprise application development and testing has become a complex undertaking that requires support for diverse computer and network environments, typically involving collaboration between geographically distributed teams and a multitude of development tools and components. Developers of multi-tiered applications often require two to four physical systems for basic application development and functional testing. This requirement creates significant challenges in infrastructure provisioning and manageability, causing IT managers to struggle with controlling hardware, facilities and administrative costs while trying to deliver projects on time and consistently maintain and improve software quality. VMware Lab Manager expands on the key use cases and deployment capabilities provided by virtualization with VMware Infrastructure. VMware Lab Manager can streamline and automate the VMware Infrastructure capabilities for complex application development and testing. VMware Lab Manager helps provision complex development and test environments in seconds rather than days, and eliminates man-months from application development cycles through rapid, automated setup and teardown of even the most complex multi-machine environments running on VMware Infrastructure. In a non-virtualized BEA application development environment, the process of procuring dedicated hardware, installing operating systems, and installing and configuring applications can be a painstaking and costly exercise. VMware Lab Manager addresses the challenge by automating the setup and teardown of complex, multi-machine software configurations on a centralized pool of servers shared by the application development and QA teams. These operations are performed in a self service manner by developers and QA engineers and literally take seconds, relieving the time-consuming provisioning burden often shouldered by IT. Building on VMware Infrastructure, the system also allows development and QA professionals to suspend, then capture to a shared storage library, a complete state of configurations or collections of running, interdependent computer systems that span multiple machines. This capability helps build a library of BEA WebLogic Server configurations for different development and test scenarios and custom configurations. The library can be used to provision new development and test environments which VMware Lab Manager can instantly deploy to the best
11 available resources in a pool of managed servers exactly as they were captured, running and ready to use. BEA WebLogic Server application test environments are likely to contain database server, multiple BEA WebLogic Server instances and web servers. The BEA WebLogic Server instances have hostname dependencies that make it impossible to clone the environment and configure new hostnames and IP addresses without breaking the pre-defined application layer interdependencies and configurations. This prevents the complex development and test environments from being cloned as unique instances dedicated to each of the end users. The network fencing technology of VMware Lab Manager lets users deploy multiple copies of the same library configuration simultaneously, without having to change machine characteristics such as IP addresses, MAC addresses, or security IDs and yet still have full network access. VMware Lab Manager provides the following key benefits in a a BEA WebLogic Server environment: 1. Capture complex multi-tier BEA WebLogic Server application configurations to a library. Once a stable BEA WebLogic Server environment is established, it can be captured to a library with all the different application layers online or in suspended mode. 2. Provision new BEA WebLogic Server application test or development environments by checking out existing BEA WebLogic Server environments from the library of configurations. Lab Manager can quickly create a new instance of the BEA environment and deploy it by checking out the configuration from the library. The check out process actually creates a new BEA WebLogic Server environment with all the application tier relationships and configurations intact. By using the fencing technology, you can run the exact replication of the environment for multiple development and test scenarios. 3. Maintain a complete library of different versions and configurations of development, test and production BEA WebLogic Server environments. The library can be used to create a specific pre-configured environment without the need to reinstall the operating systems and BEA WebLogic Server software or configure the applications. Suspend and capture live multimachine configurations to the shared library so that a stable, ready to run image is available for use by other teams. 4. Create a central pool of virtualized servers, storage, and networking shared across the application development and test teams. Such a pool will deliver higher levels of server containment, capacity utilization and reduced hardware requirements to support the development and test environments across the enterprise. 5. Automatically and rapidly set up and tear down complex development and test configurations. These configurations can be provisioned from the library of configurations using the selfservice capabilities. 6. Suspend and capture multi-layered configurations exhibiting a bug or other defect, ensuring reproducibility at debug time. The multi-tiered BEA WebLogic Server virtual machines can be suspended and captured during any part of the development or test cycle, ensuring that application defects can be rapidly and consistently reproduced and resolved early in the cycle. 7. Give all developers or test engineers the equivalent of their own fully equipped data center with dedicated provisioning staff. 8. Move configurations efficiently and quickly between development, test, and staging environments. BEA WebLogic Server Virtual Edition: Optimizing Production Environments Today, customers can get the benefits of virtualization by deploying BEA WebLogic Server applications in any certified standard operating system (Windows, Linux, etc) within virtual machines in their test and development environments. With VMware Lab Manager, these benefits for the test and dev
12 environment are greatly multiplied. When deploying BEA WebLogic Server applications in production, customers can choose either the traditional BEA WebLogic Server or BEA WebLogic Server Virtual Edition. Since BEA WebLogic Server Virtual Edition eliminates the operating system from the software stack, the WebLogic Server Virtual Edition virtual machine container can run directly on the virtualization layer. This approach allows BEA WebLogic Server Virtual Edition environments to deliver potentially enhanced performance, higher resource utilization, and deployment of a larger number of applications on every physical machine. Key Benefits of WebLogic Server Virtual Edition for Production Environments 1. Increase control and achieve business agility through application governance. o Implement SLAs based on policy-based automation. o Scale and migrate applications without huge time and effort overhead. 2. Simplify application deployment with pre-configured software appliances. o Remove installation and configuration challenges with fully integrated stack. o Rapidly provision and deploy new instances on resource pool. 3. Reduce costs through virtualization and consolidation. o Optimize hardware utilization: less hardware to support same number of applications. o Eliminate OS license and administration costs. o Reduce data center complexity and operating costs.
13 Summary Deploying BEA WebLogic Server and Java applications on VMware Infrastructure drives tangible benefits through the complete application lifecycle from development to production. By streamlining, automating and simplifying the application development and testing processes, customers will experience faster time to production while maintaining high quality throughout these processes. Rapid provisioning and change management capabilities increase IT flexibility and enable timely response to sudden and changing business needs, while data center optimization enables efficient resource pooling to maximize hardware utilization.
