    Moving from Tomcat to JBoss

    sj_bennett Newbie

      I am currently working on an application that is JSP/Servet only on Tomcat 4.1.24. The Apache HTTPD server handles all requests and forwards requests for JSP pages to the Tomcat server via the mod-JK connector.

      How do I migrate this to an implementation on JBoss. I am specifically concerned if the details of integrating the Apache HTTPD server with JBoss requires different configuration.

      I have purchased the full documentation set, so if there is something I missed in there that would be of help, please just provide a reference to it.

      Thank you.

          I'll second this request and add the caveat that it would be nice if there was some documentation on how to integrate Tomcat 5 with JBoss as well as migrating from Tomcat to JBoss.

          I too have purchased the documentation but find the tutorial of more use to what I'm looking to do, but it doesn't cover Tomcat.

            The other choice is to redeploy my Tomcat applications on the embedded Tomcat container that ships with JBoss.

            Any answers for me? Thanks.

                In any of the server configs. for e.g. /jboss_home/server/default/deploy/jboss-tomcat41.sar/META-INF/jboss-service.xml

                <!DOCTYPE server [
                 ENTITY catalina.home "../tomcat-4.1.x"
                ]>
                


                And change the port numbers in jboss-service.xml accordingly.
