Configure a Foreign JNDI Provider

Only Oracle Cloud at Customer This topic applies only to Oracle Cloud at Customer.

When using AppToCloud to create an Oracle Java Cloud Service instance, you must configure the location of any Foreign Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI) Providers that were present in your source Oracle WebLogic Server domain.

A foreign JNDI provider is a feature of WebLogic Server that allows applications to access JNDI resources on a remote application server as if they were JNDI resources in the host WebLogic Server. You can choose from these options:

  • Select a specific server or cluster in an existing Oracle Java Cloud Service instance. Both service instances must be in the same identity domain.

  • Enter the URL of the remote JNDI provider. If this is the location of another Oracle Java Cloud Service instance, you must also enable network communication between this service instance and your new one.

To configure a foreign JNDI provider:

  1. From the Additional Service Details page of the AppToCloud instance creation wizard, expand Foreign JNDI Provider.
  2. Select the name of the foreign JNDI provider.
  3. Click Disable if you want to remove this foreign JNDI provider from the service instance. Otherwise continue to the next step.
  4. Update the configuration for this foreign JNDI provider:
