Guide to This Document

Standards Compatibility

WebLogic Server implements the Java EE 5 specification. Java EE 5 includes a deployment specification, JSR-88, that describes a standard API used by deployment tools and application server providers to configure and deploy applications to an application server.

WebLogic Server implements both the JSR-88 Service Provider Interface (SPI) plug-in and model plug-in to comply with the Java EE 5 deployment specification. You can use a basic Java EE 5 deployment API deployment tool with the WebLogic Server plug-ins (without using WebLogic Server extensions to the API) to configure, deploy, and redeploy J2EE applications and modules to WebLogic Server. See Compatibility Statement for WebLogic Server.

Deployment Terminology

The following WebLogic Server deployment terms are used throughout this document:

New and Changed Features in This Release

Now you can use an Apache Maven plug-in for WebLogic Server (weblogic-maven-plugin) to perform deployment operations similar to those supported by the command-line utility, weblogic.Deployer. For more information, see Using the WebLogic Maven Plug-In for Deployment.
