It depends on the company. Some places it is operations. Some places it is bug fixes (coding.)

@Vishal: It is always a good idea to ask companies what activities / tasks
are included in the Role you are applying for.

In Production Support, you could be receiving problems / issues from users,
and investigating if it's a problem with the user's environment (correct hardware, or software dependencies),
or a bug in the system itself. In the latter case, you might need to fix the bug.

WebLogic is an application server. Transact SQL is a proprietary extension to SQL. Transactional SQL could be transactions (commit two queries at the same time so your bank account doesn't leak money.) Or it could be a typo for Transact SQL.

Is this an entry level job? If so, it probably won't matter that you've never heard of these. If not, you should have at least heard of them. Then it depends on how you answer. If you say that you know a different application server, they might consider that you could transfer that knowledge quickly.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
