The T3 protocol is a proprietary protocol used by Oracle WebLogic Server, a Java-based platform for developing e-commerce applications. The protocol provides an optimised method to transfer data between the server and other Java programs.

How the T3 protocol is used

When an application is run by a Java client, the Oracle WebLogic Server identifies all the Java components that will need to be connected. It then establishes a single network connection using the T3 protocol to carry all data traffic between the client and the server.

Benefits of the T3 protocol

The T3 protocol is an efficient method of connecting the WebLogic Server and other Java virtual machines. Its ability to multiplex allows a single network connection to carry all data traffic, using less network and operating system resources. The T3 protocol also increases efficiency of the system by minimising packet sizes.

Oracle WebLogic Server

Oracle WebLogic Server, which uses Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) technologies, is a platform for developing e-commerce applications. It's classified as middleware in a three-tiered application architecture, mediating between the client, like a web browser, and an enterprise's backend resources, like database and mainframes.
