My company is currently developing an website on JBoss 4.04-GA (which is essentially like an E-commerce website).
Essentially it would consist of a simple informational webpage just in plain http and an shopping cart section which members would login and make purchases. Therefore anything after login and then on to the shopping cart have to be in https.
Also i have a hardware application firewall that can encrypt http connection to https, however it can only encrypt based on the IP and port of the server.
Is it possible to have jboss run different 'contexts' on different ports?
like the information site would be hosted on port 80
and the login and transaction site would be on 8080
I know this sounds a little confusing, but i am trying to make jboss serve the website efficiently and securely with my firewall.
Thanks in advance
