Default Java support?

Could anyone tell me what would be involved in setting up my server for server-side scripting support such as JSP or servlets? If so would that be through Tomcat or something else like JSWDK?

FYI, I am running Debian Sarge with ISPConfig.

I have a client that wants me to host his site but he wants the ability to run these scripts.

Thanks in advance!

What I am looking for are any brief guidelines and pitfalls for doing this with my current system. I have some understanding of how to do it, but I am not so sure as to how to do it on this setup.

Any help is appreciated.

I'd love to help you, but I don't have much experience with JSP...

Hey, there's never been a better time to learn.

Actually, this would be a nice additional module for ISPConfig and your Perfect Setup How-to's.

This is something that I WILL have to dive into so if I am successful, I will give you some feedback. My main concern here is for ISPCongif and how it would need to be installed so I can turn the JSP/Servlet feature on/off per customer--similar in the way you can turn on/off ofher features such as MySQL, SSI, etc.

Thanks for the response!

I dont think that you would be able to turn it off per customer, unless you can integrate it into ispc... so it might be something that would just run and you create a seperate account on your linux box for those customers who wanted jsp and then that should give your customers access to jsp. This is something I was going to look into at some point, post what you find out, and if I find anything else out myself I will post as well.

Thanks

This would be ideal. The ISPConfig team needs to consider this in one of the next versions of ISPConfig. I am suprised that this topic has not come up yet. JSP can be a bit of a demand in the world of hosting .

I think Tomcat would be the best solution for me. I am still reading the docs... It doesn't sound like its going to be too difficult to install. I am just concerned that I may break something in the current setup.

What o/s are you running?

The ISPCofig team has very few active developers and a very large feature request forum So it might be a good idea if someone needs a special feature to either code it and submit it to the ISPConfig SVN repository or find someone who codes it and submits it. Tomcat integration will not be trivial and as none of the core developers uses tomcat, we would have to become familar with tomcat first before we can integrate it in ISPConfig.

I would love to take the bull by the horns on a project like this. It would be great to make such a contribution for the project, but I am not sure my level of expertise could support such a task. I am going to look into it though. It would be a great addition...

Thanks for the response till.

For now you could use ISPConfig's "Apache Directives" field to paste in your JSP directives.
