Guys,

1. Does weblogic include any separate HTTP server?
2. Can we attache any other webserver/HTTP server to it, (say for eg. can we attach apache web server to weblogic so that all webrequests would be taken care by apache and the servlets/ejb would be taken care by weblogic)

Thanks,
Guru

WebLogic does not have a separate external Web Server. However, it does have the capability to act as a web server itself.

Depending on the size and capacity requirements of your application and network topology of your deployment using the built-in http server in WebLogic may be sufficient. It is actually pretty decent but still doesn't come close to scaling as well as an Apache or IPlanet.

The weblogic has build in http server which is quite good but not as good as other production quality http web server like apache, iplanet.

You can use any other external http webserver with weblogic using proxy plug-in software provieded by weblogic

A while ago I made some rough test for Weblogic HTTP server performance. I tested one jsp page with images, css and js links with Weblogic 8.1.4 and with Weblogic 8.1.4 behind Apache HTTP server running weblogic proxy plugin.

Plain Weblogic handled 320 request/s and Weblogic-Apache handled 650 request/s. Apache and Weblogic where running on same machine. Difference can be even greater if Apache is runned in seperate machine.

Usually static stuff is cached in client browser so performance increase in production envs is not as big as my tests show.
