Subject RE: Deploy Ofbiz in JBoss
Date Thu, 01 May 2008 02:46:03 GMT
Thanks everyone for your replies and apologies for my slow reply (have been hiding out in the
warehouse implementing ofbiz).

To be honest I don’t have any preference on how to deploy ofbiz, I am just searching for
the best way to scale ofbiz beyond a couple of servers. We are looking at needing a system
that can handle 1m page views a month now and 5x that in 12 months.

JBoss was tempting me with their feature of farming deployment ( http://docs.jboss.org/jbossas/jboss4guide/r4/html/cluster.chapt.html

I will certainly read more into Websphere - a brief look at their feature list is interesting.

Perhaps the quickest and cheapest solution would be Tomcat as that work has just been done.

Subject: RE: Deploy Ofbiz in JBoss
We have ofbiz deployed into Websphere (Community Edition) thanks to the
work we commissioned Jacques to carry out. We have used JBoss (with
other apps in production) in the past and moved off of it due to
performance issues under the severe load we put on our applications.
Websphere looks good and lightweight and one of our sister companies
uses it in heavy duty environments with much success.

Why not consider Websphere (community edition is all apache bits and
pieces), unless you have a real pressing need to use JBoss.

There is a wiki page that Jacques put together on how to deploy.

Hi all!

I think the question here is:

How many people would like to see it versus how many people have the
capacity (time / ability) to make it happen. I would even guess that
there *are* many installations like that, just maybe nobody sat down and
wrote the howto for that or committed a modified build script which
creates the artifacts in question.

What I know about it so far is:

- OFBiz contains a number of webapps, so it cannot live in just one WAR
archive. It might be possible to create an EAR archive, though.
- I think there are some config files which are shared across webapps. I
am not sure how this would fit into a typical deploy policy for any
production ready hosting.

Do we have a Wiki page on that subject yet? Is there anyone who has done
this and could share some dos and don'ts? Or would there any code
changes be needed?
