Using T3 Protocol to WebLogic Server Through External Hardware Load Balancer
Last updated on AUGUST 30, 2017
Applies to:Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 8.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The question is if a hardware load balancer can be used in between the stand alone client making T3 requests to the WLS Cluster?
Take for an example where an EJB application is deployed on a WebLogic Cluster and a standalone client makes T3 calls to the EJB application deployed on WLS cluster. The standalone client connects to a load balancer address using T3 protocol and the load balancer distributes T3 calls to WebLogic Cluster. Below is a request flow to show the use case:
Standalone Java Client -> connects to H/W Loadbalancer using t3 protocol -> Load balancer proxies and load balances T3 calls to WebLogic Cluster (EJB application)
