I am a long time reader and a first time poster in the apex community.
Currently I am working on a very specific task and I could need some input here.
I am looking for a way to deploy apex listener to IBM Websphere 8.0 and I am curious if there is anyone out who already got it working.
I got apex 4.2 on oracle 11g running with either apex listener in standalone mode and ohs + apache modplsql.
Our environment parameters are
Apex Listener 2.0
IBM Websphere 8.0
Here is how far along I came
- Apex 4.2 installed on Oracle 11g
Application Server (IBM Websphere 8.0):
- JDBC provider created
- J2C alias created
- Data source created
- JDK 1.6.0_34 installed
- Apex Listener configuration via java -jar apex.war
I have deployed apex.war to Websphere and set the context root to /*
Next step was creating i.war for apex images.
I started with java -jar apex.war static <apex directory>\images
Here I got stuck a bit. My idea was to add another xml file to i.war with Websphere specifics.
When looking at the created archive i.war I only found the WEB-INF directory with the coresponding xml files,
but no images. I was expecting the images to be included in i.war.
Here is what I did
C:\Oracle\apex_listener_20>java -jar apex.war static C:\Oracle\apex42\apex\images\
WAR-Verzeichnis : C:\Oracle\apex_listener_20\i.war
Context-Pfad : /i
Statische Ressourcen : C:\Oracle\apex42\apex\images\
Does anybody know what's wrong here?
Another approach would be to copy the image directory to the application server and
set file serving options accordingly. Since I have no experience with Websphere I yet need to find out how to do that.
Any hints on how to go along from here are very much appreciated!
admitted on a linux filesystem...
/usr/java/jdk1.7.0_02/bin/jar -cvf0 i.war -C apex_4.2.1_en/apex/images/ .
then I just copied this from the db server to the app server and deployed
your information helped with deploying i.war.
When testing the URL http://192.168.0.55:9080/i/apex_version.txt
it shows the expected result: Application Express Version: 4.2.1
Now I am back at testing the installation
When running http://192.168.0.55:9080/apex/ I get following error message
The webpage at http://192.168.0.55:9080/apex/ is currently unavailable. It may be overloaded or down for maintenance.
HTTP Error 503 (Service Unavailable): The server is currently unable to handle the request. This code indicates this is a temporary condition, and the server will be up again after a delay.
I checked the websphere console, the status of apex.war is started.
Can anyone lead me in the right direction where to look for installation errors?
