The web server receives application requests from the web environment (internet and intranet) and forwards the requests to the Oracle Jolt port on the application server. A collection of PeopleSoft servlets running on the web server handle incoming requests. Like the server processes on the application server, each PeopleSoft servlet is designed to perform unique functions. For example, the portal servlet handles browser requests while the gateway servlet handles service oriented architecture (SOA) messages and requests.
The web server currently supported by PeopleSoft is Oracle WebLogic.
