I have a question regarding the PROVIDER URL of weblogic. We are not facing any issues, its just that I need to know the concepts behind it. We have a client code in our web app (deployed on weblogic 10) which sends messages to a queue which is on a different server. I'm sure it must be a weblogic server because we use the t3 protocol. In the code we look up the queue using JNDI and we supply the intial context and the provider url through a properties file. I can see the value of both these parameters. Can any one tell me what is the Provider url? As per my understanding its just a server location which provides the JNDI naming server. Is it not? If its a weblogic server then shouldn't it be accessible through the console? But i'm not able to open the console of the server (provider url).
