Last updated on AUGUST 21, 2023

Applies to:

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


What are the corresponding Weblogic Data Source Parameters/Settings (12.1.2) for the following GlassFish specific (v2.1.1) JDBC Parameters?


A pool with this property set to true returns non-transactional connections. This connection does not get automatically enlisted with the transaction manager.


The transaction-isolation-level on the pooled database connections. This option does not have a default value. If not specified, the pool operates with the default isolation level that the JDBC driver provides.You can set a desired isolation level using one of the standard transaction isolation levels: read-uncommitted, read-committed, repeatable-read, serializable. Applications that change the isolation level on a pooled connection programmatically risk polluting the pool. This could lead to program errors.


A pool with this property set to true can be used by non-J2EE components, that is, components other than EJBs or Servlets. The returned connection is enlisted automatically with the transaction context obtained from the transaction manager.

proxyHandler (

The proxy handler for the Enterprise Server is responsible for retrieving information about the original client request that was intercepted by a proxy server (in this case, a load balancer) and forwarded to the server, and for making this information available to the deployed web application that is the target of the client request. If the intercepting proxy server is SSL-terminating, the proxy handler retrieves and makes available additional information about the original request, such as whether the original request was an HTTPS request, and whether SSL client authentication is enabled. Use the proxyHandler property only if authPassThroughEnabled is set to true.

The proxy handler inspects incoming requests for the custom request headers through which the proxy server conveys the information about the original client request, and makes this information available to the web application using standard ServletRequest APIs.

authPassthroughEnabled (

When the Enterprise Server authPassthroughEnabled property is set to true, information about the original client request (such as client IP address, SSL keysize, and authenticated client certificate chain) is sent to the HTTP listeners using custom request headers. The authPassThroughEnabled property allows you to take advantage of a hardware accelerator for faster SSL authentication if you have one installed. It is easier to configure a hardware accelerator on the load balancer than on each clustered Enterprise Server instance.
