Oracle HTTP Server


Oracle HTTP Server (OHS) 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.

What's New:

Oracle HTTP Server 12.1.2 leverages WebLogic Management Framework for the Apache HTTP Server configuration, process control, and lifecycle administration tasks. This administration experience is designed to be simple and consistent with the rest of the Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c products. For more information refer to What's New in Oracle HTTP Server 12c

Oracle HTTP Server (OHS) 12c can be provisioned in two different topologies:
  1.   Administering OHS 12c through WebLogic Domain  -   This scenario requires users to download and install Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure 12c before downloading and installing Oracle HTTP Server 12c. Also, OHS 12c need to be installed only in the location containing Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c Infrastructure . For more information, please refer to Standard Installation Topology for OHS 12c in WebLogic Domain . Here, administrators will be able to administer OHS using Fusion Middleware Control 12c Console as well as through a command line administration. 
  2.  
  1.   Administering OHS 12c through Standalone Domain - This scenario allows OHS 12.1.2 to be downloaded and installed without any additional dependency. For more information, please refer to Standard Installation Topology for OHS 12c in Standalone Domain. Here, the server administration is done through the command line interfaces available within the WebLogic Management Framework  For more information refer to Working with Oracle HTTP Server section within product documentation. Also, this installation scenario can be leveraged to install OHS 12c with minimal dependency and administer remotely through the OHS 12c WebLogic Domain.
