When connecting to Oracle RAC Database, the Active Grid Link feature guarantees Fast Connection Failover and Connection Load Balancing.

What other advice do I have?

If you are interested in Oracle Fusion Middleware products (Business Intelligence, Oracle Service Bus, Identity Management, etc.), I suggest before installing a standard WebLogic Server: investigate the installation, the configuration, the high availability and backup/restore. Also don't forget to apply patchset updates and recommended patches, to avoid known bugs or issues.

Gives us two main features that we use the most and which are the most valuable to us: the administration console and clustering.
Team Lead at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees
Important features out-of-the-box are the JMS server, database tuning options, full script ability, and Java EE 6.0 support.

What other advice do I have?

Also, consider using Apache with the WebLogic plugin as a web tier and SSL terminator instead of a commercial offering.
