This is an orion newbie question. We have an application
that installs as a war file and runs with tomcat
and weblogic. We are looking at running with orion
Is there a FAQ or posting somewhere that gives a
roadmap on which of the various .xml files in
the config directory need to be modified to
tell orion about a web application? I have not
been able to find anything in the doc....
If you can't find the info on orionserver.com or orionsuppoert.com, it's definitely in the mailing list archive somewhere (accessible from orionserver.com).
The basics: Orion won't accept just a WAR, it needs a whole application in an EAR. However, you can make your WAR a module of the default application, which amounts to the same thing.
I don't remember the details, but you can find them in the list.
We just did a distribution of Maverick (mav.sourceforge.net) and our sample ships as a war file, so here is a section from our installation.
1. Add this to the end of orion/config/application.xml:
<web-module id="myWebApp" path="../applications/myWebApp.war" />
2. Add this to orion/config/default-web-site.xml:
<web-app application="default" name="myWebApp" root="/URLPath" />
Hope that helps,
