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 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 http://127.0.0.1:8080/.

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.

Today’s IT environment is constantly changing, which affects security policies and firewall rules. Discover tips to help you embrace this change through process improvement & identify areas where automation & actionable intelligence can enhance both security and business agility.

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)?

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...

Thanks.

Is there a nice tool that can retrieve all folders in a certain directory that have a .v1 or .v2 folder extension (not file extension).  I need a list so I can delete those directories instead of manually doing it.  If anyone finds a tool or command that can do this, thank you!

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?

EE,

I'm having issues getting our network devices to work with SNMP v3 and there's not much online in the way of troubleshooting v3.
I went ahead and switched to v2 just to see it work and does show up as healthy now, however, it doesn't appear to pull any CPU/Memory or interface data even though it shows CERTIFIED and enumerated the Vender as PA-5000 series. The Network Summary view shows the interfaces with a green empty circle as if it's not being monitored. Firewalls are obviously fine since it enumerated the OID Tree and discovered everything.

Do we need SNMP port 162 in addition to 161 or could this be another issue?

Hi Expert,

One of our development team were trying to loading the data in their test database from their application portal.

They can attach file into the database but they got the following error.

"Timeout during database update. The operation has been accepted by the server and will usually complete successfully."

They are able to load the file successfully but don't want application user to see this.

Here is my question, is there any option to set up timeout for the database level. They set up the file size from application side only for 20 MB


Please help

I have a current storage device which is clustered between 4 servers (2 application servers, and 2 database servers) There are 2 quorum disks one is attached to the database and the other is attached to the application sever - all of this resides on the SAN unit. I have 10 disks on my application server and 3 disks on my SQL server.  I've tried with the vendor 2 times and he's failed to migrate the cluster to the new storage unit.  Let me just say the new storage unit is set up exactly like the old storage unit and all the data is copied.  Can someone give me some information on the method to attach the new storage unit and detach from the old storage unit?  I think you have to break the cluster 1st because if you don't the drives will just fail over and apparently the contractor doesn't understand the concept of a cluster.

Hi Experts, we have a client with an old network system. There are 15 users in Sussex and 3 users in site London.
At the sussex main site there is 1 x sbs 2003 that runs active diretory, dns , dhcp, exchange (pop collector) and files. Also they have on this server sage payroll.

They also have 1 x windows 7 machine that runs sage adm (multiple different versions) and Iris.
Ix windows 7 machine also servers as a windows RDP server for the London office , 3 users.
They log into access files and the apps.

They are considering going to Office 365 and want to explore how they can have a better , secure system.
We are looking at proposing Server 2012 DC , and an Apps server for Sage, Iris and a documents storage program they use.
We are considering a VM server to run this , just wondered if we could get some feedback and some advice on best approach for this.

Hi All,

Please can someone tell me in layman term the best practice for a simple optimal performance for setting up network connections within Active Directory Site and Services. Currently to me it looks overkill with connections to each sites, not sure if this is good for replication or bad? Please try not to send me complicated links as I've already googled some and it makes my head hurt.

We have -

Site 1 - 100MB MPLS with 2x DC's
Site 2 - 100MB MPLS with 2x DC's

Site 3 - 10MB MPLS with 1x DC
Site 4 - 10MB MPLS with 1x DC

Thanks in Advance!

I've inherited someone's undocumented setup, and I'm a first-timer who is learning OTJ.  Weblogic version is 10.3.2; the services are Forms and Reports. My startup sequence, at a high level, is to fire up three admin servers (startWebLogic), then three node managers (startNodeManager), followed by numerous user projects (startMangedWebLogic). Lastly, I start my oid and fr instances with opmnctl.

I've become a little familiar with the startup sequence, why Admin has to load before the managed services. Yea. My goal is to understand why there are three admin servers and three node managers (set up by persons before me, long since gone). The domains are for OID, OAM, and FR (forms).

Please help me understand whether this arrangement is healthy and if not, how to improve on it.  TIA.

We are migrating away from a key production application, but I am wondering how to handle support for the remainder of the year?

If you have done any major application migrations, how have you handled support on the legacy system?
- only break/fix support?
- no new reports?

What did you find as guidelines that worked for you?
