I have been preparing for an update of Sun ONE Application Server 7 at work for some time now. A week ago I finally found a decent way to run Sun Java System Application Server 9.1 u1 on Solaris 9 under unprivileged account so that SJSAS could be reached on ports 80 and 443. The solution was to put Apache HTTP server in front of SJSAS using mod_jk and AJP (just like Tomcat often is installed). In the solution Apache will listen for the ports and deliver the requests to SJSAS using AJP. Gladly, Sun has provided instructions for this.
Yay! I was finally bored enough to put up a blog. The default theme looks pretty awful, but I guess it’s the content that really matters. I will see if I have time to put up my own theme later. Until that I’ll try to adopt a habit of writing my findings and thoughts publicly from time to time.
