Subject [Db-derby Wiki] Update of "NetworkServerServletInterface" by BryanPendleton
Date Tue, 03 Nov 2009 18:49:10 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Db-derby Wiki" for change notification.

The "NetworkServerServletInterface" page has been changed by BryanPendleton.
The comment on this change is: Added some info from a November 2009 posting to derby-user.


New page:
The [[http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.5/adminguide/cadminservlet98430.html|description
in the Derby Server and Administration Guide regarding how to operate the Derby Network Server
using the servlet interface]] is a bit terse, so this page offers some additional guidance
about how to get this feature to work.

Thomas Hill was successful using the following steps:

 * Deploying the war file into tomcat using the tomcat manager application placed the war
file 'derby.war' into tomcat's webapps folder ({{{/var/lib/tomcat5.5/webapps/}}} on my debian
system) and also created a folder within webapps called 'derby'. Initially the derby folder
created only contained one subfolder 'WEB-INF' in which only one file 'web.xml' was found.
 * Within the WEB-INF folder I then manually created an additional folder 'lib' into which
I placed 'derby.jar', 'derbynet.jar' and 'derbytools.jar'. (Note: I made user 'tomcat55' the
owner of the folders created and of all derby jar files which I copied over, and specified
'nogroup' as group. (so I actually did not need to place anything in {{{../common/lib}}}).
 * Restarting Tomcat and then opening URL http://localhost:8080/derby/derbynet returned a
screen confirming that the 'Derby Network Server has been started' and the screen also offers
some buttons, e.g. one 'Stop' button which can be used to stop the server again.

The last thing I did was to add line {{{derby.system.home=/var/lib/derby/derbydata}}} as the
last entry in file 'catalina.properties' (found under {{{/usr/share/tomcat5.5/conf}}}) so
that database files are created and stored in a separate location and not within the tomcat
