How to become an Oracle Weblogic Administrator

How to become an Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator or Weblogic Administrator ?

To become a successful Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator or Weblogic Administrator, one should have knowledge on application technologies (such as Weblogic and OHS) and basic database exposure.  If you know how load balancers work such as F5 or Oracle Traffic Director, it will be an added advantage in designing high available architectures with failover capabilities.


Difference between Weblogic and FMW

In simple terms, Fusion Middleware is nothing but a terminology, which Oracle uses for their Products, which are running on Weblogic.  So as a Fusion Middleware Administrator, one should be able to administer any product which is running on Weblogic.  There might be few differences from product to product in installation, configuration and administration, but conceptually its same.
