    Stand alone Tomcat 5.5.4 and JBoss 3.2.6

    Nico Coetzee Newbie

      Hi,

      I am posting here after a suggestion from http://groups-beta.google.com/group/comp.lang.java.programmer/browse_frm/thread/64bae6fe6f450e54/2e8c0a058cf31a44#2e8c0a058cf31a44

      Here goes...

      I am a non-programmer, sysadmin (Linux) that was given the task
      to deploy a basic JBoss server, assuming that the Java dev okes will
      just give we "deployment" files to dump into a specific directory from
      time to time. I would then restart JBoss (my custom init script - seems
      to be working).

      After load testing, it was speculated that we might need to use the
      latest version of Tomcat to get around certain bugs/probles (Java
      related, and unfortunately I have no clue about these...). I was then
      asked to deploy Tomcat 5.5.4 with JBoss, but since JBoss comes with
      it's integrated version of Tomcat, I know need to figure a way to split
      the two.

      HOW ???

      First the usual environment stuff: Using Debian GNU/Linux (woody) with
      a 2.4 custom kernel running on a 4-way Xeon with 4GB RAM.

      I have succesfully packaged the Sun Java SDK 1.4.2 and JBoss 3.2.6
      (Debian packages) and Tomcat 5.5.4 as different packages.

      Now - how to I get rid of the integrated Tomcat, and how to I tell
      JBoss to use my custom one?

      I figure I will keep those configs as a seperate Debian package?
      Any help/suggestion are very welcome.

      Thanks
