Project Frank Deployment Notes

  • Install JRE/JDK
  • Install IIS 7.
  • Install apache tomcat 8 using installer, select host manager in the additional options.
  • Check whether its running on port 8080. http://localhost:8080/
  • Check IIS is running.
  • Lets make sure both iis7 and tomcat 8 sing from the same location. i.e use the same webroot for the common site. We add another site to the iis to point to the webapp directory of tomcat. we will also change the default site to another port first.
  • add a new site in iis and point the pysical path to the webapps directory of the Tomcat installation(by default this is inside the program_files/Apache.../Tomcat)
  • Check if a html page is working.
  • Check if a jsp page is working.. if it throws an error then we have not installed a connector to connect tomcat and iis together.
  • Download the connector from, tomcatiis.riaforge.org
