Subject Re: Cloudstack Repackaging / Distro support
Date Tue, 12 May 2015 16:54:14 GMT
Hi Lazlo,

I hadn't seen that JIRA issue yet :)
I am indeed working in packaging and have taken a different approach, which
provides for much cleaner distro support.
I'm currently finishing up on having the exact same installer working for
both centos7 and fedora2x without any need for special customization.
It's working well with both java 7 and 8, build test and runtime as far as
I can see :)
I'll be committing the fedora part later on
https://github.com/apache/cloudstack/pull/238 this :)
Perhaps you could help test if everything is ok?

About the reverse proxy, it might have numerous reasons :)
The most popular reason for putting tomcat behind an httpd is because of
historic bad performance in tomcat for serving static files and such, this
would allow for caching on a faster engine :)
There's also a reason of security, which might lead some folks into having
specific machines designed to secure http traffic between zones or
something of the sorts.
