There’s a good article by Nelson Segura-Nunez which describes, how to install Jira, Atlassian’s cool Bug Tracking, Issue Tracking, & Project Management Software on Sun WebServer 7 . If you also want to install Confluence on Sun Web Server 7, it’s much more easy than Jira. Just deploy the WAR-File…
The last preview version of Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 is downloadable now. We run some Intranet JAVA Applications e.g. Atlassian Confluence on Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 preview 1 without any problems. Hope to have the final Version soon, to migrate some apaches and tomcats on Sun Java System Web Server 7.0. Anyone testet Coldfusion WAR File Deployment on Web Server 7.0?
Parts of the documentation of the Sun Java Enterprise System 2006Q4 are on docs.sun.com, now. I hope Sun doesn’t lock it all with a password, like in history. Parts of the docs are loocked now. To get beta dokumentation early, is good to plan a release change from a former Sun JES Release and to prepare an installation. The following new interessting modules are in the documentation collection, among others:
I hope the the other docs are following soon, I’m looking for the upcomming mobile support for mail and calendaring and the modified oulook connector.
There’s a very interesting article on Sun Developer Network about the migration of webapps (servlets, jsp) from tomcat to Sun Java System Web Server 7.0. Sun Java System Web Server includes a J2EE Engine, which is based on Glassfish and has out of box support for J2EE 1.4 web tier technologies including Servlet 2.4, JSP 2.0, JSF 1.1, JSTL 1.1 and integrates JWSDP 2.0.
If you want to run the WAR File Edition of Atlassian Confluence on Sun Java System Web Server 7, be sure to install Sun Java System Web Server 7 in 32 bit mode. Confluence will fail, if the Web Server is installed in 64 bit mode, which is default on Solaris. Sun Java System Web Server includes a J2EE Engine, which is based on Glassfish and has out of box support for J2EE 1.4 web tier technologies including Servlet 2.4, JSP 2.0, JSF 1.1, JSTL 1.1 and integrating JWSDP 2.0.
If you want to look at the preview version of Sun Java System Web Server 7, you can download it now. Have fun !
About one month ago, I wrote about the Sun Java System Web Server and PHP Support. Now, there’s a new document on Sun Developer Network about integrating PHP in Sun Java System Web Server. Also, there are some Java One Blog entries about Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 and integrated PHP support.
There are not so many articles on the web about running Sun Java System Web Server instead of apache or tomcat. The Sun Java System Web Server is not only a Web Server, it also includes a servlet container. There are also a lot of NSAPI modules available to integrate with other Application Servers like BEA Weblogic, Vignette V/7 etc.. Maybe the PHP integration, which I never tested in a project might not be so good. There’s a free PHP Enabler for the Sun Java System Web Server from Zend, but since a long time, it’s still Version 1.0… For those who want to run their Applications like Java Web Services based on Axis or the Roller open source blog server Blog Software on Sun Java System Web Server, this arcticle might be a good starting point. From my experience, Sun Java System Web Server is a really good and stable product, and I’m looking forward to see Version 7.0 which will support Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) within Secure Socket Layer and Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS). For all friends of our ne Sun Niagara T2000 Server, the on chip hardware SSL Accelerator is supported by the Web Server.
