    Map a war to an HTTP connector / virtual host

    Daniel Abramovich Newbie

      Hi,

       

      I'm porting to JBoss AS 7.1.1 from JBoss 4.04. I have two webapps A and B, one of which (say webpp A) is accessed programmatically so can use a large number of concurrent connections. We don't want A to starve out B, so in the past we've deployed A and B on different ports, backed by separated thread pools. In the past, this was implemented in the Tomcat server.xml by creating separate <Service> tags, each with their own <Connector> and <Host> elements. The host name was "localhotst" in both places, but one of then had a <Context> element which mapped the path to webapp A to this Service.

       

      I'd like to do the same thing in JBoss AS - Web 7. We've tried creating to separate instances of the JBoss Web subsystem, each with a connector with a different socket binding. One subsystem has a default-web-module which maps to our webapp which needs its own pool.

       

      JBoss complains that we we have duplicate subsystems. Ok, fair enough. But how can I configure things so different webapps are services by different connectors? Maybe just a way to give the subsystems a unique name?

       

       

      {code:xml}

      <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:web:1.1" default-virtual-server="default-host" native="false">

            <connector name="http" protocol="HTTP/1.1" scheme="http" socket-binding="http"/>

             <virtual-server name="default-host" enable-welcome-root="false">

                 <alias name="localhost"/>

             </virtual-server>

      </subsystem>

      <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:web:1.1" default-virtual-server="default-host" native="false">

             <connector name="other_lots_of_connections" protocol="HTTP/1.1" scheme="http" socket-binding="other_http_port"/>

             <virtual-server name="default-host" enable-welcome-root="false" default-web-module="other_webapp.war" >

                 <alias name="localhost"/>

             </virtual-server>

      </subsystem>

      {code}

       

       

      Thanks,

      -Dan

          Hi,

           

          what you are trying to achive is possible but with bit diffrent configuration:

           

           

          <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:web:1.1" default-virtual-server="default-host" >         
             <connector name="http" scheme="http" protocol="HTTP/1.1" socket-binding="http"/>
              <connector name="http-vs" scheme="http" protocol="HTTP/1.1" socket-binding="http" >
                          <virtual-server name="vs1" />
                          <virtual-server name="vs2" />
                      </connector>
                      <virtual-server name="default-host" enable-welcome-root="true">
                         <alias name="localhost" />
                         <alias name="example.com" />               
                      </virtual-server>
                      <virtual-server name="vs1" />
                      <virtual-server name="vs2" />
                  </subsystem>
          

           

          in this case we bind vs1 and vs2 virtual hosts to http-vs connector.

           

          but please note that this functionality was recently found to be broken, so the fix is not yet merged into upstream, but it is expected to be soon.
