I am trying to build a webserver for standing up test and production environment web applications. I want to use Apache2 as the front with Tomcat as servlet container and using the Apache connector for the two to communicate with one another.
Essentially I would like to have this development scenario:
- All development work would be done on Windows platform (XP). I would then like to have the desired .war file sent over to the server (where the TEST and PROD instances stands). The .war file would get dropped into the Tomcat webapps directory where it will be exploded.
For accessing to the server, I am guessing it would go through Apache2 (probably will act as a smart proxy server...) then onto Tomcat.
I hoping if anyone out there that had similar views and could provide some procedures or point me to somewhere that would help to leverage my goal.
Thanks all in advanced!
