    Can we install Jboss on MS IIS?

    Fred Grott Newbie

      I am asking this question becuase I have a java dev interview with Bosch in a few dyas..

      I know that I can configure MS IIS to run Tomcat..

      Would it be correct to assume that I would be using simialr sttesp if I wanted to use JBoss instead? If so what files/dlls/filters woudl have to be changed?

          here is what I did. JBoss breaks if you try to run it in the same JVM as tomcat when using the ISAPI filters in IIS.
          You must install tomcat using the isapi filter. Then run jboss (you can run it as a service) separately in a different JVM. There is a performance hit but it works well. Also you can separate your WEbserver from your application server. Unless you have a small site you will have to do this if you are using multiple-jboss's. (ie for fail over or load balancing)

          In your servlet you just create a InitialContext and user a provider url to your other machine:1099 (for JNDI) and then place your jboss.jar files in the WEB-INF/lib directory (so the tomcat server can know about the HOME-remote interfaces of the EJB).

          Got it?

          Also... if you do this you can take advantage of the getRemoteUser() method that extracts out your NT login name (if you use NT authentication under IIS setup).
