Understanding Using Web Server Plug-Ins With WebLogic Server

The following sections describe the plug-ins provided by Oracle for use with WebLogic Server:


What Are Plug-Ins?

Plug-ins are small software programs that developers use to extend a WebLogic Server implementation. Plug-ins enable WebLogic Server to communicate with applications deployed on Oracle HTTP Server, Apache HTTP Server, Netscape Enterprise Server, or Microsoft’s Internet Information Server. Typically, WebLogic Server handles the application requests that require dynamic functionality, the requests that can best be served with dynamic HTML pages or JSPs (Java Server Pages).

WebLogic Server Plug-Ins do not support two-way SSL. However, the Plug-Ins can be set up to require the client certificate and pass it on to WebLogic Server. For example:

apache ssl 
SSLVerifyClient require 
SSLVerifyDepth 10 
SSLOptions +FakeBasicAuth +ExportCertData +CompatEnvVars +StrictRequire 


Plug-Ins Included with WebLogic Server

WebLogic Server includes plug-ins for the following Web servers:


Oracle HTTP Server Plug-In Support

Plug-in support is also available for Oracle HTTP Server. These plug-ins are packaged with the Oracle HTTP Server distribution. See Oracle® Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle HTTP.
