Scale and manage WebLogic Server as your needs grow

Zero administration clients (ZAC)

WebLogic ZAC makes it very easy to deploy client-side code to your users! You simply use WebLogic Server as an application dispenser, and authorized users can use any browser to request the desired application from WebLogic Server. Once the client-side application is installed, it will be automatically updated with any changes you publish through the WebLogic Publisher Wizard, a graphical, easy-to-use interface that takes you step-by-step through the publishing process. Your end-users don't have to manually install anything!

Graphical management console

WebLogic Server includes a console for monitoring and managing a WebLogic Server configuration. You will have complete insight into what your WebLogic Servers are doing, where the hot spots are, what your dynamic runtime environment looks like, and what resources specific applications or users are consuming.


WebLogic Server provides optional support for Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to ensure the integrity and privacy of network communications. Security services support X.509 certificates and access control lists (ACLs) to authenticate participants and manage access to network services. WebLogic Server includes the RSA security algorithms to ensure SSL compatibility with industry-standard browsers.

Standard Internet protocols

WebLogic Server allows network communications to flow over HTTP or CORBA IIOP, which can be used across firewalls or to connect CORBA-enabled clients or servers.

Global naming

WebLogic Server uses the Java-standard JNDI interface with whatever LDAP-compliant directory technology your corporation chooses for managed objects, users, database connections and other resources under its control.

Load balancing

WebLogic Server permits server-side components to be dynamically relocated across machines for load leveling. Requests can be balanced across multiple servers that are providing EJB or RMI components, or running servlets for a web clients.

Fault tolerance

In a WebLogic Server cluster, requests for JNDI, EJB, or RMI will automatically fail over to another cluster member in the event of an individual server failure. Furthermore, since HTTP sessions can be saved to a persistent store as a database or file system, WebLogic Server can provide long-lived sessions as well as fault-tolerant sessions. Multiple WebLogic Servers can provide service to a web community of users with a high degree of fault tolerance with no single point of failure.

Exception logging

WebLogic Server automatically logs diagnostic information, and provides interfaces for applications to log their own exception conditions. Logs can be viewed remotely from a web browser using common log format.
