Installing the HTTP Module for tc Server

Installing the HTTP Module for tc Server

This topic describes how to install the HTTP session management module with tc Server templates.

  1. If you do not already have tc Server, download and install the product from the VMware tc Server download page or the Pivotal tc Server download page. These instructions require tc Server 2.1 or later. (If you are using an older version of tc Server, you should set up the plug-in without templates: HTTP Session Management Module for Tomcat.)
  2. If you have not already downloaded and installed Pivotal GemFire 8.1, download and install Pivotal GemFire 8.0 from the Pivotal GemFire download page as described in Installing Pivotal GemFire.
    The HTTP Session Management Module for tc Server is included in the Pivotal GemFire 8.1 installation package. After you install Pivotal GemFire, you can find both modules in the following location:

    where $GEMFIRE is the location where you installed GemFire and 8.X.X corresponds to the version of the HTTP Session Management Module (for tc Server 2.X or tc Server 3.0) you are installing.

  3. Unzip the module into the Pivotal tc Server $CATALINA_HOME/templates directory so that it creates gemfire-p2p and gemfire-cs subdirectories within the tc Server templates directory.
  4. Copy the following jar files to the lib directory of your tc server ($CATALINA_HOME/lib):
    • $GEMFIRE/lib/gemfire.jar
    • $GEMFIRE/lib/antlr.jar
    • $GEMFIRE/lib/spring-core-3.2.12.RELEASE.jar
    • $GEMFIRE/lib/spring-shell-1.0.0.RELEASE.jar
    • $GEMFIRE/lib/log4j-api-2.1.jar
    • $GEMFIRE/lib/log4j-core-2.1.jar
