i am in the process of learning weblogic. (i cleared my scjp, so taking the next step).
but first, how to start. do i need to download the weblogic. i guess weblogic is a development environment. can someone get me started with it. what needs to downloaded and what are the capabilities of weblogic. I read in one of articles that weblogic was used by an airline company to develop its airline reservation system online. They used only weblogic, its development tools and servers to host.
does weblogic also have its IDE similar to what we know like forte or visualcafe ?

Weblogic is a J2EE deployment and serving product, ie it is capable of serving JSP, Servlets, EJBs etc... I can provide JMS, JDBC data sourcing and pooling.
The BEA site has hundreds of pages of reference although in my experience does not have too many full working examples, but does have lots of code snippets.
As far as I know it does not come with an IDE but does come with a Deployment tool (wls 5.1) and wls 6.1 has a browser based deployment and monitoring tool.
In terms of learning weblogic I would start small - create a few JSP/Servlets get them to connect to a database via Weblogic and then move on to simple stateless session EJBs.
The sun site, as ever, has many J2EE resources although they are not specific to weblogic they are still very helpful.
good luck
Stephen

Mark,
You can start by downloading a 30-day trial version from BEA at: http://commerce.bea.com/downloads/products.jsp
The jdk is also included in the download (best not to change it, even if you already have the jdk).
Check out the BEA docs site for a complete list of capabilities: http://edocs.bea.com/index.html
WebLogic is not an IDE. Version 6 is configured via an Administration Console in a browser, but all of your source code and classes must be developed and compiled in another IDE (Visual Cafe, JBuilder, Forte, textpad, notepad, javac, etc.). WebLogic does provide some utilities to create tag libraries, deployment descriptors, and compile EJBs.
FYI, United Airlines built its online reservation system on BEA: http://www.bea.com/customers/profiles/united_success.shtml
Check out their partial customer list at http://www.bea.com/customers/index.shtml
It'll amaze you!
