Oracle HTTP Server is the Web server component of Oracle Database. It is based on the Apache HTTP Server. It is robust and reliable server due to following features:
- Provide high availability infrastructure integration with Oracle Process Manager and Notification Server (OPMN), for process management, death detection and failover for Oracle HTTP Server processes.
- Provide Dynamic Monitoring Services (DMS) metrics that give runtime performance statistics for Oracle HTTP Server processes.
- Enable securing of transactions with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology.
- Execute Perl scripts in the same process as the Oracle HTTP Server, or as CGI script.
