Web Request Broker (WRB)

Definition - What does Web Request Broker (WRB) mean?

Web Request Broker (WRB) is a software appliance that provides a runtime environment for managing the processes and interaction between multiple websites or Web applications with a backend database and application infrastructure. It is a proprietary Oracle technology that is used in its Web server application suite.

WRB works through a specific application programming interface (API) that is integrated with all supported backend applications.

Techopedia explains Web Request Broker (WRB)

WRB is a type of middleware application that provides a suite of different services that are specifically designed for distributed Web applications built on Oracle technologies. It allows a client’s HTML request to be translated into database scripts, converted to HTML and delivered back to the client. These requests may be generated from single or multiple HTTP servers.

A typical WRB architecture consists of a dispatcher, WRB appliance, cartridges (WRB integrated applications) and application engine and execution instances.
