Goal

Weblogic web server proxy plug-in or HttpClusterServlet sets http header "WL-Proxy-Client-IP". When the setting "WebLogic plugin Enabled" set to true, the web application runs within WebLogic Server can get client IP address by calling request.getRemoteAddr() or request.getHeader("WL-Proxy-Client-IP").

What if a F5 BIG-IP load balancer takes place of the proxy plug-in or HttpClusterServlet ?
