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
- 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
- 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.
