Subject RE: Web server integration / NameTrans stage
Date Thu, 09 Aug 2001 17:15:35 GMT
But... you still need to edit the web server configuration file to deploy a
web app. If the file that describes how the two pieces integrate is owned by
the tomcat user, then the Java guys can look after that and the only thing
that they need to do with iPlanet is use its admin tool to restart it.

iPlanet is not nice to configure, it's not very forgiving (a single space in
the wrong place can prevent it starting with no sensible error message), and
its configuration files are typically owned by root - I want to let the
webapp coders deploy their applications, but I don't want them anywhere near
the web server that I've spent so long configuring and tuning.
