now in production environment i know that we configure a web server in front of application server, it could be either apache or IIS or any other. however i don't know if it's a mandatory thing and what exactly it's purpose and weather it's always required?This is not a mandatory thing. Also, this forum is about iAS. For weblogic you'll have a better chance to get help if you go to: WebLogic Server - General
With a webserver in front of weblogic, you'll have more options for configuration. In addition, it can help you harden your configuration.
You can use a webtier installation. This will install OHS and mod_wl_ohs. You can then configure mod_wl_ohs to use your weblogic instance. Search Google for mod_wl_ohs and you'll find lots of resources. I found the following one helpful : http://middlewaremagic.com/weblogic/?p=6872
