The following sections describe the plug-ins provided by Oracle for use with WebLogic Server:
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, Sun Java System Web 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 includes plug-ins for the following Web servers:
Apache HTTP Server
Microsoft Internet Information Server
Sun Java System Web Server
This release of Using Web Server Plug-Ins with Oracle WebLogic Server documents the following plug-ins:
Apache HTTP Server, version 1.0.1211636
Microsoft Internet Information Server, version 1.0.1211636
Sun Java System Web Server, version 1.0.1211636
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 Server.
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
Set the WebLogic Plug-in Enabled control in WebLogic Server.
The WebLogic Plug-in Enabled control specifies whether the WebLogic Server uses the proprietary WL-Proxy-Client-IP header, which is recommended if the server instance will receive requests from a proxy plug-in.
