Two more things:

* Since you said twice you'd like the authorization phase go to the
  oracle db, what authentication mechanism should be used at with httpd?

* HTTP Basic (or Digest) Authentication does not allow for a "custom
  login page" (i.e. forms based authentication), so if that's your
  requirement then you'd need to solve this programmatically anyway.
  E.g. CGI with a Perl Script and DBI and DBD::Oracle, or whatever.

You might as well do all this in Weblogic (of which I know nothing,
but assuming it can do a few things similar to Apache Tomcat) and not
httpd, since then you'll have JDBC and easy access to Oracle?
