Generating Web server plug-ins in WebSphere Network Development
Note: This is publication is now archived. For reference only.
The Web server plug-in is used to forward requests from a Web server to WebSphere Application Server. The Web server plug-in is installed on the Web server machine, but the configuration file (plugin-cfg.xml) for the plug-in is generated via WebSphere and then moved to the appropriate location on the Web server. This is rather straightforward in a base WebSphere installation, but can become a little confusing in a multi-node environment. This tip examines an approach for the generation of plug-in configuration file(s) in WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment topologies. We will discuss three example scenarios, each describing a different topology.
