Oracle HTTP Server is the Web server component for Oracle Fusion Middleware. It provides a HTTP listener for Oracle WebLogic Server and the framework for hosting static pages, dynamic pages, and applications over the Web. Key aspects of Oracle HTTP Server are its technology, its serving of both static and dynamic content and its integration with both Oracle and non-Oracle products.
Technology - Oracle HTTP Server is based on the proven, open source technology of Apache. Oracle HTTP Server 11 g is based on Apache 2.2 infrastructure, and includes all base Apache modules and modules developed specifically by Oracle.
Static and Dynamic Content - Oracle HTTP Server serves static content directly or via standard interfaces such as WebDAV standard. Great flexibility is provided in dynamic content generation and many languages, such as Java, C/C++, Perl, PHP and PL/SQL.
Integration - While Oracle HTTP Server has standalone deployment options, it can also be deployed in a highly integrated manner with rest of the Oracle Fusion Middleware and Database products. In addition, Oracle offers plug-ins (Proxy and OSSO) for integration of the Oracle Fusion Middleware with non-Oracle web servers.
The features of single sign-on, clustered deployment, and high availability enhance the operation of the Oracle HTTP Server. Oracle HTTP Server 11 g is available off the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11 g Web Tier and Utilities DVD.
