I am a novice in Apex application and hosting, I need help if possible detailed information on how to configure IIS to host completed Apex applications.
And how to use my PC as a web server to allow completed Apex applications to be accessible on the internet anywhere for various end users.
certified webservers for apex listener are Oracle WebLogic Server, Oracle Glassfish Server, and OC4J
DAD configuration can only work with servers that have mod_plsql and IIS does not have it.
You can check the option to use the thoth gateway
this might help
let me know if this answers your query in the current thread
If you want to use the APEX Listener you would still need a supported application server (Glassfish etc...) but you could use IIS as the front end to that similar to the advanced configuration described here . http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/apex-listener/overview/index.html
I have done this configuration with IIS 7.5 with ARR connecting to Galssfish and it works pretty well. There were some issues with double escaped characters, etc... that we never quite worked out correctly but time constraints kept us from sorting all the required URL rewrites to meet the customers' full requirements.
I have never played with Thoth Gateway but I have read that some people like it quite a bit.
On the whole, for a budget production system I would go Apache --> Glassfish/Apex Listener or just Glassfish/Apex Listener with Tuckey http://tuckey.org/urlrewrite/
Thanks all for the response.
I have installed and configure both Apex listener and Glassfish Server on my PC and as well deployed Apex.war and the image, I can access my apex Application at http://192.168.1.10/apex/f?p=10:2:11298631080519::NO::: on LAN, different computers connected to my network, Please what else should I configure to make my Apex application accessible on the internet making it public.
Thanks in advance,
You are getting into issues beyond the scope of APEX. You have many things to consider (proxies, ports, ssl certificates, firewalls, etc...) these are generalized issues with exposing any self hosted web server to the internet.
If you don't already know how to do this with some confidence, I would truly recommend you find a professional to assist you or do a significant amount of research on how to safely expose your web server as a static website before you even try to link it up to an APEX instance.
