General information

 

Apache Tomcat Connector is an open source software not provided by VertiGIS GmbH nor from Esri. It needs sophisticated manual configuration and functionality cannot be granted.

 

Using Apache Tomcat Connector is optional:

Advantage:
All Apache Tomcat web applications may be referenced via port 80, so external URL's will not need any port declaration.

Disadvantage:
Sophisticated and buggy installation

 

Note: The currently recommended version is Apache Tomcat Connectors (v1.2.48 - 64bit) for Microsoft IIS.

 

 

Apache Tomcat Connector Installation

 

If you use IIS (Internet Information Services 7.5, 8.0, 8.5 or 10) as web server and Apache Tomcat as servlet engine then you may want to install the Apache Tomcat Connector.

 

This requires the installation of specific components of IIS (Internet Information Services). Open the Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Turn Windows features on or off and expand the Internet Information Services feature. Verify that the IIS components listed below are turned on.
