What is HTTP Tunneling and How Can We Configure It On Weblogic
Answer: HTTP tunneling provides a way to simulate a stateful socket connection between WebLogic Server and a Java client when your only option is to use the HTTP protocol. It is generally used to tunnel through an HTTP port in a security firewall. (Company) HTTP is a stateless protocol, but WebLogic Server provides tunneling functionality to make the connection appear to be a regular T3Connection. (E learning portal)
Steps to configure Http tunneling.
Login into the Admin Console, click on the server on which you want to enable the Http Tunneling feature
Click on the Protocols tab? General? check the “Enable Tunneling” checkbox.
Now you can communicate with the JVMs (Server Instances) using protocols other than t3.
