    Conceptual question JBoss + Tomcat as a Window Service

    Ron Jawanda Novice

      I am having difficulty getting my ear files loaded into the jboss server because I think I may be doing something conceptually wrong.
      I run Tomcat as a service on Win 2000 server
      I then run Jboss on the command line.

      I also installed the redirect on IIS5 to point it to use tomcat (using the dll).

      When I load an ear file it tells me that I don't have a web container.

      My question is can you run JBoss and Tomcat separately (not in the same virtual machine) and be able to run servlets that run within JBoss (ejb access).

      ??

      Hope someone can answer this.

      NOTE: when I run jboss and tomcat in the same VJM (ie: embeded catalina) I can get the ear file to lead without any problems but ... of course... I can't get the IIS service running because it is a service for Tomcat alone and not a combination of tomcat and jboss.

      Does anyone know what I am asking (maybe I am very confused). Hope someone can set me straight.

          If you run tomcat and jboss in separate vms you can't load ears.

          Have you considered using Jetty (embedded in jboss) as your only webserver, no IIS?

            I am using this system on an corporate intranet (not internet) and need to have NT authentication... OR I just need to know automatically WHO the person is that the web page is running as.

            ie: On iis you can turn on NT authentication and in a script get an env variable to find out who the user is. I don't want to manage another set of passwords.
            I am not sure how I can do that with APACHE or Jetti without using ACTIVE DIRECTORY or ldap. We don't have either.

            That is my problem.

            I would like to be able to use .net as well as we have to do some microsoft stuff (sorry) and we can't keep around many different web servers.

            That's the short response. :)

            Thanks for your help.
