Application Servers

An application server is a software framework that provides both facilities to create applications and a server environment to run them. Most application server frameworks contain a comprehensive service layer model, acting as a set of components accessible to the software developer through an API defined by the platform itself. For Web applications, these components are usually performed in the same running environment as their web server(s), and their main job is to support the construction of dynamic pages. However, many application servers target much more than just Web page generation: they implement services like clustering, fail-over, and load-balancing.

Using an Oracle Data Guard with a Primary and Standby database instance, is there a way to use a JDBC driver to send to the correct DB instance (or more specifically, to allow the application to fail over to the Standby  database instance if the primary is down)

I examined the documentation and the JDBC drivers appear to be for a RAC cluster as opposed to the Data Guard Primary and Standby

Can some one please help clarify ?

App Development

Apart from its culture, demographics, and beliefs, Indian infrastructure is also quite complex, especially because of the challenge of overpopulation that stares us right in the eye. Due to this, it has been quite difficult to anticipate the traffic behavior, directions, local businesses, and many other things, with accuracy. When Google Maps was launched in India, it certainly helped, but also showed us that we need a better solution. Something that is indigenous, so that it knows the country inside out. Hence, MapMyIndia.

A mobile apps development company that works in sync with ISRO’s Bhuvan satellite - MapMyIndia recently launched its navigation and positioning app, created exclusively for India, and is already giving tough competition to Google Maps. It provides accurate information even for daily commuters. In fact, it has taken it a step further by including many live features that are extremely helpful, especially when you are in a country like India where traffic situations and even addresses change every now and then. So let’s take a look at what features it brings together to create something that is messing with the Google ‘bear’.

IoT Tracking

A big leap ahead for India with this IoT solution, the app uses its own IoT devices to track and collect information from different points through sensors. Making the best use of IoT technology, the app has been instilled with the ability to create real-time alerts for users and commuters. In case of a traffic jams, IoT sensors take note of the situation and suggest short and alternative routes to mitigate the traffic.


Matching shoulders with Google, the app also provides a voice navigation facility with turn-by-turn navigation support, which is expected to decrease the rate of road accidents that happen due to the lack of hands-free GPS systems.

Floating button for Reporting Issues

Apart from the data collection via the IoT system, there is a manual way of reporting issues i.e via people. Road damaged? Broken transport? Traffic jam in your area? Just take a picture and upload it to the relevant section in the app. Good thing is that the app has covered almost all kinds of issues that occur, including map issues, traffic issues, connectivity issues, and areas with specific access.

Tailored for India

Compared to Google Maps, MapMyIndia focuses on much more detail and list small businesses, facilities, shopping centers, and even personal addresses. However, because the app is still quite new to the market in terms of reach, it is still under the data collection phase, during which you may not find many small addresses in the app. But that is only for now because the database is constantly growing.

Detailed Information

Another reason why the app has great usability in India is that it provides complete information about a particular thing that you look for on the map. Apart from the address and direction, you also get a contact number, email, website and opening hours. Also, with the help of worldview, not only you can get details about a place, you can also see what people think of this place, based on the number of likes it has garnered.


Some people just want more information about everything, including trips, so just an odometer and tachometer is not enough for them. MapMyIndia comes with trip analytics that allows info savvy people to track more. You can track the time of trip completion, estimated time of arrival, remaining distance, remaining time of arrival, and much more; on-the-go.

MapMyIndia has created something that is perfectly tailored to the ever-changing maps of India. However, one of the things that the application clearly lacks is user experience. The touch buttons and screens reflect subliminal efforts on the designing side.

I have Tomcat 8.0.35 running, web application running from IntelliJ IDEA 2017.3.3 (build successful and WAR deployed) but the browser (I tried with Chrome, Firefox, and IE) is showing HTTP Status 404 when I try to access http://localhost:8080/ or

I built my web application with Maven as WAR. The WAR file was successfully deployed in Tomcat's "/webapps/ROOT" directory and "index.html" and "index.jsp" are there and at the end of the deployment the browser page is open.

Tomat is configured to default ports: 8080, 8081, 8009.
I keep seeing this error message on two 100% identical (same hardware ProLiant DL380p G8, 8 GB RAM on each, same 2012 R2 o/s, same updates) servers that are currently

features except file server. No Exchange, no DC, etc.
Both are physical servers (NO virtualization running on them) on the same network in the same AD domain as all other servers that do not show this error
They both have Shadow Copies enabled and configured for previous versions of files/folders,

We are deploying Web application proxy server in AD FS environment. We will use this ADFS to configure Azure AD Connect for Exchange Hybrid Environment.

Question:   For above mentioned environment, Web Application server should be part of domain or can we keep it as stand alone server?

If it should be part of domain then what ports should we need to open to allow its access to DMZ domain controller servers ( active directory)?

When first time deploy war file, after the completion I made a http request for the system (example: http://localhost:9080/CSW/login/login.jsp).

Receiving the following error:
Virtual host/WebGroup not found: The web group CSW/login/login.jsp has not been defined.

Could you please help with it? Why I get this error?

How can i check a windows computer to see a list of all remote desktop sessions by users, when they last logged on, how long they logged on for?
I program in C# but need to write a Java app that can be downloaded and run on many platforms. The application will "scrub" confidential information from a merchant's credit card report (PDF).

It will remove the merchant's name, address, merchant ID (xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx) account number, etc.

It will do this by scanning the entire PDF and exporting non-confidential data to a CSV file.

I need this to be easy for non-techies to download and run.

What basic considerations should I have about what I should and should not consider before I start planning the design?

What frameworks help? Hurt?

What kind of installation program/script is needed?

I would host this download from my website...

How to get all documents from SharePoint services document library at once?
We are looking to replace our current SAP systems with a new one.  We were thinking of pointing using a friendly URL to point to the database such as  and instead of using DB Server name.

This way our application servers just get this FQDN to point to the database.  THis would simplify our DR planning and future migrations.

The question is, does SAP require certificates or something similar where the application servers would not be able to communicate with the DB  (SQL or Oracle).  My understanding is SQL and Oracle use username\pass to authenticate,  or does SAP rely on certificates to communicate with the DB servers?
