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