1. See http://www.jboss.org/community/docs/DOC-9719
2. See http://www.jboss.org/embjopr/
3. Embedded Jopr (item 2) can do this for you.
4. Start with http://www.jboss.org/community/docs/DOC-9289 and then do more research in the wiki and documentation on "isolation"
5. I don't think so, you need to pass any login information through to JBoss AS
Thanks for your help.
About the question 2 and 3, I install Embedded Jopr 1.1 in JBoss 5.0. Inside the Admin console (Embedded Jopr), it won't show the web application (war, ear, ...etc) and then I don't know what it can do. As the install guide said this current version is for JBoss 4.2.x, that is not for 5.0 (something is incompatible). I start to watch the demo video to explore the usage of this GUI.
About question 4, I will spend time to search the "isolation" for library later. Thanks for your advise.
About the question5 (basis authentication), I don't understand what you mean. I mean that I set some .htaccess to protect webpage in Apache (ldap, password file) and also I set some authentication (maybe custom JAAS to check against ldap or password file) in a web application of JBoss server. After I login Apache to view some webpage, I go to view the protected webpage in JBoss in the same browser session. This URL request send to JBoss (should include the authentication data in the header). Does the JBoss popup to ask the input username and password again? It seems something related to "single signon".
( Apache is front end web server; JBoss is backend application server. )
Thanks for any help.
I asked about when Embedded Jopr would officially support 5.0.0.GA, and was ignored http://www.jboss.com/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=148121. You can always download the source and build it - it creates a 5.0-specific version.
Regarding question 5, I have never done this so cannot offer any insight.
Thanks a lot.
As a starter to JBoss, I want to use a Java Web Server that use the jsp files , war web application, data source(connection pool), basic authentication,jaas. Should I just use JBoss Web (servlet container) for start point and then move (upgrade) to higher level of using JBoss AS in the future? Or is it the same to use JBoss AS as JBoss Web when manually do not use the rich/powerful features of JBoss AS?
JBoss Web Server is basically Tomcat with a different name. So there will be differences in configuration between it and JBoss AS.
With AS 5.0.0.GA, there is a new 'web' configuration (look in the 'server' directory). This configuration should give you the basic capabilities you are looking for.
