Weblogic is replacing OC4J as middleware in R12.2

I just read Steven Chan's blog about June 2011 EBS Techstack Roadmap which has some slides on upcoming R12.2. Most notable in R12.2:

Latest middleware: Fusion Middleware 11g
  • WebLogic Server to replace Fusion Middleware 10g Oracle Containers for Java (OC4J)

Latest database: Oracle 11gR2 11.2 Database
  • Online patching via Edition-Based Redefinition
  • Improved performance via database result caching
Oracle has been steadily pushing Weblogic as its chosen Application server for all its products which require an application server. Notable among these products are Oracle Transportation Management (OTM), Oracle Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) Suite. Now EBS will also use Weblogic as the application server. Oracle Application Server or OC4J is the terminal release as Oracle Application Server 11g is Oracle Weblogic application server.

So all Oracle Apps techies brush up your skills and learn how Weblogic operates.
