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.

I host application servers for a website and to allow users to upload documents, we need them to be scanned first by AV software. I assume I will need to find AV with some sort of API to trigger the scan. Does anyone know how to approach this problem?

how to configure https in jboss7
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  prodcutionSQLDB.ACME.com  and  productionOracleDB.ACME.com 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?
I have SharePoint Server 2010 and Project Server trials installed.
I am trying to activate SharePoint Server 2010 trial, and found how to do it here

Is it correct? Should I really enter Project Server key?

We're running a XA 6.5 environment, and I've just built a series of new VMs and added them to the existing farm.

I am able to see the new servers within the farm and have verified that the application servers are all same version (6.5), same OS Win2k8R2, same Hotfix XA650W2K8R2X64R03.  However the XML brokers (we have 3) are R04.  My first guess would be to verify that all the Hotfix packs were the same, however, when I try and launch applications from the old farm (R03), everything works normally with the XML brokers (R04).  I don't want to convert the XML brokers (R04) to a different hotfix pack (R03) and break the old production environment.  So why can't the new servers work with the XML brokers?

I have verified that the new application servers have R03 just the same as the old farm, however I am unable to publish applications from any of the new servers.

When I attempt to launch an application from one of the new servers, I see the following error messages in the WI:

Hi all,

for a customer I have to set up a JBoss application server cluster running 24/7 with 99.95% availablility. This means if we have to install a new version of the application we have to do this without downtime. The development partner proposed a round robin installation. So the proposal is to create e.g. three server groups within the cluster. During installation of the application first one of the server groups will be shut down => undeploy the old version => deploy the new version => start server group again => repeat this with the second and  third server group. In fact this would lead to always two server groups processing and thus no downtime.

I heard about the OSGI extensions of JBoss and that those extensions are provided to also solve the zero downtime deployment issue. I'm not a Java developer and my OSGI knowledge is just googled.

Any recomendations how to achieve zero downtime deployment with a JBoss application server ?

Hello there,

Good Day!

I would like to have the best suggestion on performance testing  to one of our project.

Well, right now the server response time is 80 responses per sec(80/sec) but our client requirement is 2333 per second.

Kindly need the suggestion what to do in such type of scenarios? what should be the server configuration to achieve the client requirement?

Waiting for the best suggestion.

Have A Nice Day!
