    Do I need to install Apache after JBOSS installed?

    huskerchen Newbie

      I installed JBOSS 3.2.2 with default settings. My understanding is that HTTP/JSP/Servlet are all listenging the port 8080. Is that correct? Where in JBOSS should I put the static html files?

      Thanks!

          You do not need to install apache unless you wish to. Tomcat can server your static content (although not as efficiently/fast as Apache) The other option is to install Apache to serve you static files - I believe that you still pack your html files in your WAR file, however apache will serve them when configured to integrate with tomcat.

            Actually, you need to separate static content from dynamic content and the static content needs to be placed in areas that Apache can access directly. Otherwise, the content in the WAR will still be served by Tomcat/Jetty. You then adjust the content serving rules via the workers2.properties configuration in Apache. Just a small correction. ;)

              Hi, I'm running Jboss 3.2 + Tomcat 4.1 and would like to install Apache 2.0.47 as frontend. I was using the Apache connector succesfully when I was using Tomcat as a separate bundle. What shall I do now that Tomcat is embedded in Jboss?

              Please note that I've already configured Apache to work with the mod2_jk.dll and the workers2.properties file. I think I need only to setup Jboss. There is another thing: now that Tomcat is embedded in Jboss, is CATALINA_HOME needed for the Apache connector?
