JAVA - JVM ON SOLARIS SERVER
Posted on 2003-11-11
would appreciate help pls.
I have a SOLARIS BOX. I have JDK1.2.2 installed on this machine.
I have TOMCAT-APACHE as WEBSERVER-SERVLET Engine on this box.
In this, I have bunch of application running (using 1.2.2, tomcat-apache).
I want to install a new application now on same box -- but this new application needs JDK 1.4.1 version..
I don't want to upgrade the whole server since it might break few things on my existing applications.
what is the suggestion here?
Can I have 2 JVM on my solaris box.. and my exisiting application pointing to JRE 1.2.2 and my new application pointing to JRE 1.4..
This new application (for now) would be independant of existing application (it will just run with main method behind the scene), so probably would not be using web stuff apache and tomcat..
but may be in future it would need to use tomcat etc. also.. (not sure right now)..
what can you suggest on this pls..
