I've a question about production deployment and architecture about weblogic server, and the web server pluggin. If weblogic is on a solaris box, then is it better to have the web server(which is used as a pluggin to serve static pages) on a separate linux box or to be on the same solaris box which has weblogic on it. I mean i would like to know the correct set up of weblogic, and webserver in a production environment. Also can somebody give me a link for the documentation on installation and deployments with weblogic and web server(apache or iplanet) on unix.
Plugin for NES/IPlanet is provided as .so file. Copy it to the iPlanet's server /bin directory. Edit obj.conf to forward certain requests.
Hope this helps. You may want to seperate the web layer(iPlanet) and the app server (WLS) physically (different) boxes for security reasons. I am not sure if the plugin would work better if WLS and iPlanet were co-located on the same box. They would probably use local IPC instead of sockets, but I am not too sure. But the rule of the thumb is seperate the web and app layers and have images and static content hosted on iPlanet.
Yes, my master! Here is the tiny ad you asked for:
