Hi,

Is it true that TomCat webserver is a part of ME (for JSP). How was this done!! Does this mean that there was a layer built on top of the tomcat to which directs the jsp pages to servlet engine? I am not much aware of tomcat either!!! And also is it right that the layer (if built) was independent as we have a separate installation of ME for AWT applications. How was the ME for AWT based applications built.

With Regards

Murali

    Tomcat is just abunch of Java files, which represents a Webserver by fullfilling some specification request (has to fullfill servlet spec. e.g.). So it's just another kind of (small) software, which can handle so called web applications. ME is just another web application.

    It is not independent concerning AWT and JSP, because a web container serves only JSPs and has nothing to do with AWT.

    Hi Kraska,

    Thats fine that ME for JSP is another web application running on Tom cat. Then how was ME for AWT developed. Some light on that or documents would be fine.

      Well, JDK 1.1.8 is a minimum requirement. If you want to be absolutely sure, that your app runs on any PDA mentioned in the availability matrix of ME, then code compliant to JDK 1.1.8. But the latest OS for PDA run on a higher version anyway. So 1.3.x, 1.4.x shouldn't be a problem. We do it here, too

    Hi Murali,

    If you look on http://jakarta.apache.org/site/binindex.cgi, you will see that there is an embedded version of the Tomcat server. (Not sure if SAP ME uses release 5 though).

    There is also a good article at http://www.vsj.co.uk/articles/display.asp?id=319 that explains how you can write an application using embedded Tomcat, and if you use the keywords embed+tomcat on Google I'm sure you will find more.

    Regards,

    Hi,

    Two questions extending this.

    1. We all know that tomcat (webserver is open source) and ME for JSP is a webapplication running on tomcat. Then how is the ME sold. Is is that we give them a release of ME and say that to use ME you need tomcat (with a specific release) which can be downloaded for free from internet. Please clarify on this.

    2. Also extending the question. I guess the question was when developing applications using ME we still need to be complaint with jdk1.1.8. My question for this was is this because of the JRE that we use for PDA namely Creme not supporting jdk1.3.* and above. What exactly is the reason for this.

    With Regards
