What Is WebLogic T3?

By Matt McGew

When a business implements an e-commerce application, the system should accelerate the introduction of the organization's online presence, while allowing it to move its products and services quickly. To facilitate this process, businesses can use tools that help manage their e-commerce needs. WebLogic T3 is one solution that offers businesses fast and reliable management of different online applications.

What Is WebLogic

WebLogic is a server software application used as a processing platform for online transactions. The application uses the Java 2 Enterprise Edition as its base platform. WebLogic also provides features for developing, organizing and deploying e-commerce applications across various computing environments. Additionally, the application facilitates the integration of mainframe applications for the distribution of corporate data.

What Is T3?

T3 is the protocol used to transport information between WebLogic servers and other types of Java programs. WebLogic keeps track of every Java virtual machine connected to the application. To carry traffic to the Java virtual machine, WebLogic creates a single T3 connection. This type of connection maximizes efficiency by eliminating multiple protocols used to communicate between networks, thereby using fewer operating system resources. The protocol used for the T3 connection also enhances efficiency and minimizes packet sizes, increasing the speed of the delivery method.

J2EE Platform

J2EE is the platform used for developing enterprise applications using the Java programming language. WebLogic uses various components of this platform to make changes automatically to applications without additional programming. This ability to make changes automatically can lower operating costs and improve performance. As part of Oracle’s service-oriented Architecture, the J2EE platform also helps businesses align IT capabilities with business goals.

Software Component Tiers

The WebLogic server also contains a multi-tier architecture. The client tier consists of programs including Web browsers and network applications. The middle tier contains servers that address the needs of the client directly. Finally, the back-end tier contains the resources of the enterprise. This includes the database systems, mainframe, legacy applications and enterprise resource planning applications.
