New Jopr 2.2 EWS Tomcat Plugin!
Soon to be released, Jopr 2.2 adds a powerful new plugin to coincide with the release of JBoss EWS 1.0. Together, EWS and the Tomcat plugin gives customers a fully supported, fully managed Tomcat web application platform. EWS will provide current, Red Hat endorsed versions of Tomcat and Httpd. JBossON will provide powerful management via its Tomcat and Apache Httpd plugins.
Built-in EWS hooks to easily enable JBossON management
EWS Tomcat scripts are seeded with instructions and easily uncommented code for enabling plugin management.
A robust resource Hierachy for managing one or more EWS Servers

The plugin offers a wide array of Server, Connector and Application control operations.
Authenticated JMX access is supported via familiar Jopr plugin properties.
Changes to the Tomcat Server are persisted, meaning the changes are applied immediately and survive Tomcat restarts! Adding a user or role, updating a password, changing deploy options on Virtual hosts, all persisted.
Virtual Host Management
The plugin offers full support for Tomcat virtual hosts so that applications can be deployed with different request paths but managed under one tree. Virtual host options can be configured individually.
Web Application Management
Web applications offer a full slate of management and monitoring options.
- Control operations
- Content managemen
