Welcome to IWETHEY!

New It works!
Pretty simple - I was amazed.

First, go here: [link|http://www.galatea.com/flashguides/apache20-tomcat5-modjk-linux|http://www.galatea.c...mcat5-modjk-linux]
and follow the instructions for getting apache and tomcat working together.

Then have your "webfacing" author build a .war file. Uncompress the .war file in your webapps directory, edit your httpd.conf file adding the line JkMount lines:

JkMount /webfacingapp/ default
JkMount /webfacingapp/* default

Re-kick tomcat, re-kick apache and presto.

To answer my own questions, "No, you do not need to install jakarata-struts. No, there is nothing other than tomcat, apache and the connector required to make it go."

So, my webfacing app is running. That'll buy me some time while I really dig into tomcat.
bcnu,
Mikem

Imric's Tips for Living
  • Paranoia Is a Survival Trait
  • Pessimists are never disappointed - but sometimes, if they are very lucky, they can be pleasantly surprised...
  • Even though everyone is out to get you, it doesn't matter unless you let them win.


Nothing is as simple as it seems in the beginning,
As hopeless as it seems in the middle,
Or as finished as it seems in the end.
 
 
New Rather Large Caveat.
I meant to put this in the It Works post (I was so excited I forgot). The caveat is that, apparently, WebFacing apps will only work in Internet Explorer. We tried Firefox and Moz on both Winders and Linux and all we get is a blank page. HTML Source:

"<HTML>
<BODY onload="javascript:self.close()"></BODY>
</HTML>"

I don't know anything about WebSphere Development Studio or these WebFacing java generating wizards, so I can't say for sure that our developer hasn't fboggled something up, but of the little bit of JSP foo I've looked at, it appears that IE specific Javascript is the problem. There's TONS of Javascript in the WebFacing app. Anybody know if there is some "Browser Neutral" switch that can be flipped in the development of this thing?

I also have no idea how this thing is going to scale. If anybody's curious, reply to this post and I will keep posting anything I find out.

bcnu,
Mikem

New You "meant ... forgot"? That's what "Edit" is for, AFAICT...
New mea culpa.
Hey, CRC, it works. WTH are you looking at AS/400 stuff for anyway? ;0)

Your lies are of Microsoftian Scale and boring to boot. Your 'depression' may be the closest you ever come to recognizing truth: you have no 'inferiority complex', you are inferior - and something inside you recognizes this. - [link|http://z.iwethey.org/forums/render/content/show?contentid=71575|Ashton Brown]

New Cr@p.
I was hoping we could play with webfacing and come up with an alternative to our current crappy screen-scraper "webui" stuff.

Keep us in the loop here, please... My company is nearing the end of one of our implementation phases here, so looking at new options isn't gonna happen.

And thanks!
