[frs-89] Can FusionReactor workwith ColdFusion MX J2EE when installed on websphere 5.1.1, if so are there any deployment instructions?


FusionReactor has not been tested on WebSphere yet, but there shouldn't be any reason why it should not work. FusionReactor is a standard J2EE servlet filter which should run on every J2EE compliant application server. The thing where most of these servers differ is how to install such a servlet filter globally so that it applies to all J2EE applications deployed to the server. To install it into the (exploded) ColdFusion application you have to do the following;

  1. Get the generic ZIP distribution and unpack it. It comes with a 'default' instance that contains a default configuration file (reactor.conf). Double check the path and port settings in this file.
  2. Add the servlet filter definition to the web descriptor of ColdFusion (cfusion-earcfusion-warWEB-INFweb.xml). Ensure that the path to the configuration file (reactor.conf) is correct.
  3. Copy the fusionreactor.jar file to a directory that is in the classpath of the application server (e.g. cfusion-earcfusion-warWEB-INFlib)
  4. Add the directory where the native library fusionreactor.dll (resp. libFusionReactor.so) is located to the PATH (resp. LD_LIBRARY_PATH) variable. Alternatively you can add the directory to the Java System Property java.library.path and pass it to your server on startup.
  5. Restart the server
