Could you be a little more specific, I do not know what you are asking.
In the first sentence, "web server" is two words and you state it is "in jboss". In the second sentence webserver is a single word and you are implying that it is something separate from jboss. What do you mean by webserver in the second sentence?
Hi Peter, sorry for being unclear as I am trying to figure my way here too.
Here is the breakdown:
I am looking at JRun and trying to find parallels or at least work arounds in JBoss. In JRun, two services are defined:
1) For the built in WebServer (webservice).
2) For communicating with a native web server like Apache or IIS etc (proxyservice).
Both are seperately configurable (ports, max threads etc)
While, jboss-web.deployer/server.xml lets us define the first service, is there a parallel way to define the second service?
Where would one define any configuration if connecting to a webs erver like Apache?
If I understand...
You have to do comunicate Apache * Jboss. to use the mod_jk is the connector used to connect Jboss-Tomcat jsp container with web servers such as Apache.
The port of default is 8009
In jboss the port defined in docs/examples/binding-manager.
But first of all youk check this file server.xm
Forgive me , i have forgot to ask you the version Jboss.
Thanks for your answers erasmomarciano. But I am not sure I am following everything. Could you please detail this a bit more since I am new to this.
Your understanding is correct. I am trying to communicate between JBoss and Apache or IIS etc.
My Jboss version is 4.2.2GA
Thanks for the info guys. I also understand from the WIKI that mod_proxy allows to use https between Apache httpd and JBoss Web
The next question was is it possible to set configuration of the jBoss web server and Apache connection seperately/ independently (mat threads, time outs, ports etc)?
erasmomarciano did mention the port number, but I was looking to se if at all there is aplace where I can set an independent connector config much like the following:
