Using WebLogic Server with External Hardware Load balancer and T3 Protocol (Doc ID 1254295.1)

Last updated on MAY 31, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 8.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Take 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. Can a hardware load balancer be used in between the stand alone client and the WLS Cluster? For example, a standalone client connects to a load balancer address using t3 protocol and the load balancer distributes t3 calls to WebLogic Cluster (below).

Stand Alone java Client -> connects to H/W Loadbalancer using t3 protocol -> Load balancer proxies and load balances t3 calls to WebLogic Cluster (EJB application)
