Application server installation
PageBox allows dynamically installing Web applications on target applications. We provide a Tomcat installer that we tested on Linux and Windows XP with JWSDP 1.2 and Tomcat 4.1.24.
Application server installers like the Tomcat installer use two parameters in rules.xml:
On Linux use an absolute target path, for instance:
On Windows XP use a target path relative to the PageBox installation directory, for instance:
On Tomcat (including the JWSDP flavor) we define a JDBC resource like this:
The factory depends on the combination Application server / Operating system.
At least with mysql-connector-java-2.0.14 and on Linux Tomcat 4.1.24 seems to ignore the user and password parameters in the ResourceParams element.
The simplest circumvention consists in setting the user and password parameters on the URL:
It is possible to start an Application server with a security manager. You can start Tomcat (including the JWSDP flavor) with a security manager with the -security option.
In case of dynamic deployment it seems that JWSDP 1.2 doesn’t use catalina.policy. The drawback is that this prevents compiling JSPs.
