About the Authors:
Dalton Iwazaki started working with technology in a school lab at the age of 17. As a system administrator, he took his first steps in programming by building the school website in ASP. In 1999, he started working with many Java server-side applications and dug deep to understand the use of JDBC, JMS, JMX, XML, and multithreaded applications. He built some frameworks before moving on to work with application servers including IBM Websphere, Resin, Tomcat, JBoss, and BEA WebLogic. In the following year, he started building his own company, a design agency focused on the delivery of web solutions, and he also worked in partnership with Oracle Consulting on the infrastructure level of WebLogic. Through working together with Oracle's clients and projects, he has developed a solid expertise in both infrastructure and Java development, including in-depth knowledge of WebLogic Server configuration, administration, troubleshooting, and tuning.

Oracle WebLogic Server is the best application server for building and deploying enterprise Java EE applications. It comes with support for new features that help lower the cost of operations and provide improved performance, enhanced scalability, and support for the Oracle Applications portfolio. Its applications are based on standardized, modular components, and it provides a complete set of services for those modules. The technology also handles many details of application behavior automatically, without requiring programming.
