Hi everybody,


I'm currently configuring a VPS server for my Web site, at first I don't need to have load balancing, and I'm not using the Apache Server to hold static Web contains.

Therefore, to simplify deployment and because I got some problem with SSL redirection to my JBoss, I decide to configure my JBoss instance to listen directly to the 80 port and the 443 port for the SSL requests.

My question is: is it ok to do that way ?, can I have important security flaw having this kind of architecture ?

Thanks,

You can run jboss standaline - Apache in front of jboss only provides additional layer for load distribution and security and any non-java stuff that some apps may need - if you dont have need for these just jboss should do.
