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;
- 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.
- 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.
- Copy the fusionreactor.jar file to a directory that is in the classpath of the application server (e.g. cfusion-earcfusion-warWEB-INFlib)
- 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.
- Restart the server

FRS-77: I have Installed ColdFusion on WebSphere. Is there a way to install FusionReactor, to monitor ColdFusion on this environment?
