To deploy to separate Apache web and WebLogic web application servers
To reduce the load on a web application server, you can set up a separate, dedicated, web server to serve static content. All static content will be served by the web server, while dynamic content will be served by the web application server.
Note: This configuration requires that you use the wdeploy command to

split web application resources into static and dynamic content that can be deployed to separate web and web application servers. 1. Set up the Apache web server and ensure that it is working correctly. Load a web page, such as Apache's default test page, to verify that the web server is serving content correctly. Open a web browser and enter the IP address or hostname of the web server, and a port number if the server is not listening on port 80. For example: http://mywebserver.mycompany.com:80. 2. Ensure that your WebLogic web application server is working correctly. Open a web browser and enter the IP address or hostname of the web application server, and a port number. For example: http://myappserver.mycompany.com:7001.
Note: If you have any existing BusinessObjects Enterprise web

applications running on the server, they must be undeployed before continuing. 3. Download the WebLogic Apache HTTP Server Plug-In from the BEA web site. The plug-in allows you to connect an Apache web server with a WebLogic web application server, so Apache can forward requests for dynamic resources to WebLogic. 4. Follow the plug-in configuration instructions on the BEA web site for configuring the bridge between Apache web server and WebLogic. Requests for dynamic resources are now forwarded to WebLogic when received by Apache. 5. Ensure that the bridge between the web server and web application server is working by pointing a browser to the web server and verifying that dynamic content from the web application server is served correctly. For example, visit the URL: http://mywebserver.mycompa ny.com:80/jsp-examples/. 6.

The wdeploy configuration files for Apache and Tomcat are located in <INSTALLDIR>\deployment. • Edit config.tomcat55. For example:
#Business Objects Configuration Utility as_dir=C:\Appserver\Tomcat5520 as_instance=localhost as_service_name=Tomcat5 as_service_key=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Apache Software Foundation\ Procrun 2.0\Tomcat5\Parameters\Java as_service_key_value=Options

Edit config.apache. For example:
#Business Objects Configuration Utility ws_dir=C:\Webserver\Apache224 connector_type=tomcat55 deployment_dir=C:\Webserver\Apache224\htdocs

8. Use wdeploy predeploy in distributed mode to split source web applications into separate static and dynamic resources. For example:

Post Installation Web Application Deployment Deploying with wdeploy

Run the following command to extract static content for the Apache web server.
wdeploy.bat tomcat55 -Das_mode=distributed -Dws_type=apache predeployall >> wdeploy.log

9. Run wdeploy deployonlyall command to deploy the dynamic content to Tomcat application server and static content to Apache. If Apache and Tomcat are on the same machine, static and dynamic content will be automatically deployed to servers by the following command:
wdeploy.bat tomcat55 -Das_mode=distributed -Dws_type=apache deployonlyall >> wdeploy.log

Note: If your dynamic and static content are in a custom location, use

the -Dwork_dir parameter. If Apache and Tomcat are on different machines, dynamic content will be automatically deployed to Tomcat by the following command. Static content must be manually deployed to the remote Apache machine afterwards.
wdeploy.bat tomcat55 -Das_mode=distributed -deployonlyall >> wdeploy.log

Note: If your dynamic and static content are in a custom location, use

the -Dwork_dir parameter. Copy static content to the htdocs directory on the web server: • • • Extract the zip files on the web application server under <IN STALLDIR>\deployment\workdir\Tomcat55\resources. Copy these folders from the Tomcat web application server to the Apache <WS_DIR>\htdocs folder on the Apache server. Copy the bobj.<application>.conf files from the Tomcat web application server to the Apache <WS_DIR>\conf folder on the Apache server. Update Apache httpd.conf under <WS_DIR>\conf with the application config files. For each web application, you must include an entry in httpd.conf. For example, to include AnalyticalReporting, you would enter:
Include conf\bobj.AnalyticalReporting.conf

Static content is now served by a dedicated web server, and dynamic content is served by a dedicated web application server.

Using predeploy and predeployall

The predeploy command creates resources and configuration files for a specific web application, then copies the WAR application to <IN STALLDIR>\deployment\workdir\oas1013, but does not deploy the web application to the web application server. The predeployall command performs the predeploy command for all web applications. Example 1: using wdeploy predeploy to predeploy InfoView to Oracle Application Server.

Disable WebSphere JSF implementation
If pages rendered by WebSphere do not show cached values correctly, it may be using its own version of the Java Server Faces (JSF) library, rather than the JSF implementation supplied with BusinessObjects Enterprise. To correct this problem, you must manually reconfigure WebSphere for each web application that uses JSF: CmcApp, CmcAppActions, and PlatformServices. To disable the JSF implementation supplied with WebSphere, follow the instructions below. 1. Log in to the "WebSphere Application Server Administration" console using the following URL: http://WAS_HOSTNAME:PORT/admin. The WebSphere administration console's default port number is 9060. 2. Browse to YOUR_WEB_APPLICATION > Manage Modules > YOUR_WEB_APPLICATION.war Replace YOUR_WEB_APPLICATION in the example above with the name of your web application. 3. Stop the web application, so its settings can be modified. 4. Select Classes loaded with application class loader first from the combo box. Restart the web application. 5. Repeat these steps for all other web applications that use JSF. Reload pages that display cached values. Cached values are now displayed correctly.

To deploy to a WebSphere cluster
To manually deploy BusinessObjects Enterprise web applications to a WebSphere web application cluster distributed over multiple machines, you need to deploy the web applications to the machine hosting the WebSphere Deployment Manager. Once all the required web applications have been installed, you can use the WebSphere Integrated Solutions Console to separately deploy these applications to the cluster.
Tip: It is recommended that you install and configure a hardware or software

load balancer if running BusinessObjects Enterprise web applications on a WebSphere web application cluster. To configure the load balancer and cluster setup please consult your WebSphere documentation.

To deploy your web applications to a WebSphere cluster use the following general workflow: 1. If BusinessObjects Enterprise is installed to the same machine hosting the WebSphere Deployment Manager, skip to step 3. If BusinessObjects Enterprise and the WebSphere Deployment Manager runs on different machines, you must first copy the wdeploy tool and environment to the machine hosting the WebSphere administration server. If you plan to deploy PerformanceManagement.war to the WebSphere cluster, you must copy InitConfig.properties from <INSTALLDIR>\Performance Management 12.0\ to each managed server and ensure the file path of InitConfig.properties is matches the value specified for af.configdir param in web.xml in PerformanceMan agement.war as shown below:
<context-param> <param-name>af.configdir</param-name> <param-value>C:\Program Files\BusniessObjects\Per formance Management 12.0 </param-value> <context-param>

Note: The InitConfig.properties file should be located in C:\Program
Files\BusniessObjects\Performance Management 12.0 on each

machine hosting a managed WebSphere server. 2. Modify the config.websphere6 file located in the following directory: <INSTALLDIR>\deployment\. You need to specify information for the server administrating the cluster as shown in the following example.
as_dir=C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer as_admin_port=8779 as_virtual_host=default_host as_admin_is_secure=false enforce_file_limit=true

3. Open a command-line console and run the following command:
C:\Program Files\Business Objects\deployment> wdeploy.bat websphere6 predeployall

4. Open the WebSphere Integrated Solutions Console. 5. Go to Applications > Enterprise Applications to separately install each web application you want to deploy from the following directory: :<INSTALLDIR>\deployment\workdir\websphere6\application\
Note: All web applications are stored as EAR modules.
