I would like to know, how can we install WebLogic Server on a seperate machine w.r.t. webserver machine.? Which pluggin will be required to be installed on webserver machine for ex. we have OSE remote and Servlet Redirector with IBM WebSphere?
I need to design an architecture in which webserver(IIS/NES) will reside on tier-1, WebLogic will be on tier-2 and all http requests should intercept by webserver pluggin and passed on to WebLogic Servlet Engine?
Thanks in advance.
Weblogic documentation has plentify of information regarding the exact steps for doing this. I believe they currently have plugins for Apache, ISAPI and NSAPI.
I am assuming you are using Weblogic 6.0, so here is a link to the weblogic site where you can find all the information you need to set up weblogic clustering, webserver's, etc. I will say this, weblogic 6.x webserver is pretty good and if you have a choice in which webserver to use you may want to consider using that, and you wont have to setup up the weblogic connectors.
I agree with Rich about using the Web Server of Weblogic. Atleast the latest version of Weblogic has a solid version of a Web Server, so there would have to be a very compelling reason not to use it.
