Installing the HTTP Module for AppServers

Installing the HTTP Module for AppServers

Typically, all necessary jar files can be bundled within the WAR or EAR file you want to deploy. However, in some situations the core GemFire and module JARs may need to be shared across web application deployments.

The following instructions describe how to install the session management module in your application server.
  1. Download and unpack the HTTP Session Management for AppServers Module into a directory on the application server.
  2. From the directory where you unpacked the files, copy the following files from lib to an appropriate location on your application server (see table below) in order to make them available to all applications.
    • gemfire-modules-<version>.jar
    • gemfire-modules-session-<version>.jar
    • slf4j-api-<version>.jar
    • slf4j-jdk14-<version>.jar *
    From the $GEMFIRE/lib directory (where $GEMFIRE corresponds to the location where you installed GemFire), copy the following files to an appropriate location on your application server (see table below) in order to make them available to all applications.
    • gemfire.jar
    • antlr.jar
    • spring-core-3.2.12.RELEASE.jar
    • spring-shell-1.0.0.RELEASE.jar
    • $GEMFIRE/lib/log4j-api-2.1.jar
    • $GEMFIRE/lib/log4j-core-2.1.jar
    Application Server Version Location
    WebLogic * 11g (10.3.x) <domain>/lib
    WebSphere 7 <websphere install dir>/lib/ext
    WebSphere 8 Consult application server's documentation
    JBoss AS 5 <jboss install dir>/lib
    JBoss AS 6 <jboss install dir>/common/lib
    JBoss AS 7 Consult application server's documentation.

    * For WebLogic, substitute gemfire-modules-slf4j-weblogic-<version>.jar for slf4j-jdk14-<version>.jar.

    Note: This table lists all application server versions that have been tested with the GemFire HTTP Session Management modules. However, the generic HTTP Session Management Module for AppServers is implemented as a servlet filter and should work on any application server platform that supports the Java Servlet 2.4 specification.
