Setting up a webLogic cluster: web server

It is recommended that you set up the cluster by placing a Web server or separate WebLogic Server as a front‑end to the servlet container cluster. You should choose one of the following options:

  • Set up a Web server with the appropriate WebLogic Web server plug-in. Supported Web servers include Microsoft Internet Information Server.
  • Set up a WebLogic Server with the HttpClusterServlet Web application. The HttpClusterServlet maintains the list of all servers in the cluster, as well as the load balancing logic to use when accessing the cluster.

When the user's browser makes a request, the Web server or HttpClusterServlet proxies the request to the WebLogic Server cluster. See the WebLogic documentation for further details.
