Understanding Using Web Server Plug-Ins With WebLogic Server

The following sections describe the plug-ins provided by BEA Systems 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 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 

Note: The above list represents the various ways of implementing SSL and may not apply to all the plug-in types. For a complete list of parameters, see SSL Parameters for Web Server Plug-Ins on page 7-15. For information about parameters required to configure SSL, for your Web Server, refer to the respective Web Server documentation.
