Do REST Service Calls To Collocated Service Endpoints Go Over The Network? (Doc ID 1927343.1)

Last updated on JUNE 09, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 12.1.2.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Having several RESTful web services deployed in WLS 12.1.2,  the web service clients of these RESTful web services can potentially be deployed to the same WLS instance as the service endpoint.

If the service clients are deployed to the same WLS instance as the REST service endpoint, will the service requests go over the network, or will the call be invoked internally to the WLS?

It is known that EJB calls within a cluster have the option to benefit from collocation optimization, documented here: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24329_01/web.1211/e24425/load_balancing.htm#i1026598.

The question is whether there is any collocation optimization available for RESTful web services or not?
