Hi folks,

I'm trying to figure out the protocols over which the different nodes are communicating, but I've no clue, what protocol is in charge for webserver<->appserver.
Is it JRMP?

thanks,
Harbo

Harbo,

I'm looking at the configuration of the application that I work on. We use iPlanet and WebLogic all within a Vignette V6 platform. In our case the default protocol between iPlanet and WebLogic is http. However, it is configurable, so maybe other protocols can be used.

Regards,
Dan

A question related to the web server <-> appserver communication. The requirements state that the communication btw the customer and the system should be secured. Does that mean the communication btw the web server and app server also need to be secured or only the web interaction with customer need to be secured?

Parag,

I would say that only the web interaction with the customer needs to be secured.

Dan,

HTTP?
That would be my very least bet because why on earth should, e.g., a servlet (deployed on the web server) communicate with a session facade (deployed on the app server) over HTTP?
Surely, I've lost track somewhere.

Cheers,
Harbo

I guess web servers can host servelts, but in the implementations that I participated the servelts were on the app server. The web server served only static files and images.
I just spoke with our Middleware guys. They confirmed that this is the regular case.

Dan
