Does WLS support Datasource that uses SSL to connect to Oracle 10g DB?

Weblogic is going to use the JDBC driver you select for the DataSource to connect to the database. If SSL is supported by the driver and properly configured, WLS will use it.

The standard JDBC does not support SSL connection to DB, but Oracle's
JDBC extension (oci) does. The UI for Datasource configuration would be different if you use SSL: user id/password as well as client cert location etc.

Not sure if WLS has such UI?
