integrate JBoss and Tomcat

Hi there

I have just starting to learn JBoss server.

I downloaded jboss version 2.4.9 and installed in my C:/ drive I have also downloaded tomcat 4.0.3 and installed in C: drive saperately. I set the tomcat path and it is running ok.

I want to develope online application using jsp, server as web client and jboss as romote server
so is there any one help me how would i configure jboss to integrate with tomcat.

many thanks for your quick respond.

here it goes..

First of all, JBoss has been tested with tomcat 3.2.1, newer version shall be configured in similar way I think.

Tomcat libs must be in classpath; then edit JBOSS_HOME/conf/default/jboss.conf and un-comment ClassPathExtension mbean for the tomcat lib directory to:



<MLET CODE = "org.jboss.util.ClassPathExtension" ARCHIVE="jboss.jar" CODEBASE="../../lib/ext/">
  <ARG TYPE="java.lang.String" VALUE="TOMCAT_HOME/lib/">
  <ARG TYPE="java.lang.String" VALUE="Tomcat">
</MLET>

edit JBOSS_HOME/conf/default/jboss.jcml and uncomment the EmbeddedTomcatService mbean. Locate:


  <mbean code="org.jboss.tomcat.EmbeddedTomcatService" name="DefaultDomain:service=EmbeddedTomcat" />

Always in jboss.jcml, check that J2eeDeployer is:


  <mbean code="org.jboss.deployment.J2eeDeployer" name="J2EE:service=J2eeDeployer">
    <attribute name="DeployerName">Default</attribute>
    <attribute name="JarDeployerName">:service=ContainerFactory</attribute>
    <attribute name="WarDeployerName">:service=EmbeddedTomcat</attribute>
  <mbean>

Add the following lines to TOMCAT_HOME/conf/server.xml

<!-- JBoss, Setup the class loader heirarchy to enable in VM call optimization.
      Add after the org.apache.tomcat.context.WorkDirInterceptor ContextInterceptor
-->
        <ContextInterceptor className="org.jboss.tomcat.ContextClassLoaderInterceptor" />
<!-- JBoss, Add the jboss-web.xml parser. Add after the org.jboss.tomcat.ContextClassLoaderInterceptor
            ContextInterceptor
-->
        <ContextInterceptor className="org.jboss.tomcat.naming.JbossWebXmlReader" />
<!-- JBoss, Set the request thread classloader. Add before the org.apache.tomcat.request.SessionInterceptor
            RequestInterceptor
-->
        <RequestInterceptor className="org.apache.tomcat.request.Jdk12Interceptor" />
<!-- JBoss, Map the current web user to the SecurityAssociation principal. Add
            after the org.apache.tomcat.request.SimpleRealm RequestInterceptor
-->
        <RequestInterceptor className="org.jboss.tomcat.security.JbossRealm" />

To compile JSP files, add the JDK lib/tools.jar file to the classpath in run.sh/run.bat, or copy tools.jar to the TOMCAT_HOME/lib directory.

Starting JBoss with run.sh/run.bat you should now see the following Tomcat related output in your log messages:

hope this will help you..

CLASSPATH=  .;%JAVA_HOME%\lib\tools.jar;%CATALINA_HOME%\common\lib\servlet.jar

CATALINA_HOME=  C:\tomcat

JAVA_HOME=  C:\j2sdk1.4.1_03

PATH=  %CATALINA_HOME%\bin

in order to use JBoss application server and tomcat server, which I installed in different directories in C drive as follow
C:\JBoss-2.4.9
C:\tomcat4.1.3
would you please helpme how would i set all correct paths to compile ejb files

I am newly starting learning this area, so would you explain it step by step.
I dont understand what u meant these following codes:
where u r saying edit classpath:

Tomcat libs must be in classpath; then edit JBOSS_HOME/conf/default/jboss.conf and un-comment ClassPathExtension mbean for the tomcat lib directory to:



<MLET CODE = "org.jboss.util.ClassPathExtension" ARCHIVE="jboss.jar" CODEBASE="../../lib/ext/">
  <ARG TYPE="java.lang.String" VALUE="TOMCAT_HOME/lib/">
  <ARG TYPE="java.lang.String" VALUE="Tomcat">
</MLET>

edit JBOSS_HOME/conf/default/jboss.jcml and uncomment the EmbeddedTomcatService mbean. Locate:


  <mbean code="org.jboss.tomcat.EmbeddedTomcatService" name="DefaultDomain:service=EmbeddedTomcat" />

Always in jboss.jcml, check that J2eeDeployer is:


  <mbean code="org.jboss.deployment.J2eeDeployer" name="J2EE:service=J2eeDeployer">
    <attribute name="DeployerName">Default</attribute>
    <attribute name="JarDeployerName">:service=ContainerFactory</attribute>
    <attribute name="WarDeployerName">:service=EmbeddedTomcat</attribute>
  <mbean>
