Before you begin
You must install a Web service before you can configure buffering. See Install a Web service.
Note: This section applies to JAX-WS Web services only.
When a buffered operation is invoked by a client, the method operation goes on a JMS queue and WebLogic Server deals with it asynchronously. If WebLogic Server goes down while the method invocation is still in the queue, it will be dealt with as soon as WebLogic Server is restarted. When a client invokes the buffered Web service, the client does not wait for a response from the invoke, and the execution of the client can continue.
You can configure Web service buffering at the following levels: WebLogic Server and Web service endpoint.
For more information about Web service buffering, see "Configuring Message Buffering for Web Services" in Programming Advanced Features of JAX-WS Web Services for Oracle WebLogic Server.
To configure Web service persistence:
Note: Web services are deployed as part of an Enterprise application, Web application, or EJB. To understand how Web services are displayed in the Administration Console, see View installed Web services.
