Create foreign JNDI object links

Before you begin

If you haven't done so already, create a Foreign JNDI Provider. For more information, see Create a foreign JNDI provider.

A Foreign JNDI Object Link represents a local link to an object in a foreign (remote) JNDI tree. After you create a foreign JNDI provider you can add foreign JNDI links that set up a relationship between a name in your local JNDI tree and the object in the remote tree.

To create object links to a foreign JNDI provider:

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. In the Administration Console, expand Services > Foreign JNDI Providers.
  3. On the Foreign JNDI Providers Summary page, click the provider to which you want to add object links.
  4. On the Settings page for the provider, expand Configuration > Links and click New.
  5. On the Foreign JNDI Links Properties page:
    1. In Name, enter a name for the foreign JNDI link.
    2. In Local JNDI Name, specify the name that the remote JNDI object will be bound to in the local server's JNDI tree and used to look up the object on the local server.
    3. In Remote JNDI Name, specify the name of the remote object that will be looked up in the foreign JNDI directory.
  6. Click OK.

    The name is added to the list of foreign links. You can access the properties by clicking the name in this list.

  7. To add more links repeat steps 3-5.
  8. To activate these changes, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Activate Changes.
    Not all changes take effect immediately—some require a restart (see Use the Change Center).

After you finish

You can access the linked objects from your WebLogic Server clients. See WebLogic JNDI.

You can also access the object links in the local JNDI tree. See View objects in the JNDI tree.
