Chapter 16. Configuring the NSAPI connector on Solaris

The following tasks describe how to configure the NSAPI connector to use a JBoss Enterprise Application Platform instance as a worker node for a Sun Java System Web Server (SJWS) master node. Sun Java System Web Server has been renamed to the Oracle iPlanet Web Server. The old name is used throughout this guide for clarity.
In this section, all of the server instances are on the same machine. To use different machines for each instance, use the -b switch to bind your instance of JBoss Enterprise Application Platform to a public IP address. Remember to edit the workers.properties file on the SJWS machine to reflect these changes in IP address.

16.1. Prerequisites and configuration assumptions

  • Worker nodes are already installed with JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5.2 or later. The Native components are not a requirement of the NSAPI connector. Refer to the Installation Guide for assistance with this prerequisite.
  • The master node is already installed with one of the following technology combinations, and the appropriate Native binary for its operating system and architecture. Refer to the Installation Guide for assistance with this installation prerequisite.
    • Solaris 10 x86 with Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 U8
    • Solaris 10 SPARC 64 with Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 U8
