Sun Java System Message Queue 3.7 UR1 Administration Guide

Deploying the HTTP Tunnel Servlet on Sun Java System Web Server

The instructions below refer to deployment on Sun Java System Web Server. You can verify successful HTTP tunnel servlet deployment by accessing the servlet URL using a Web browser. It should display status information.

ProcedureTo Deploy the HTTP Tunnel Servlet as a .war File

  1. In the browser-based administration GUI, select the Virtual Server Class tab and select Manage Classes.

  2. Select the appropriate virtual server class name (for example, defaultClass) and click the Manage button.

  3. Select Manage Virtual Servers.

  4. Select an appropriate virtual server name and click the Manage button.

  5. Select the Web Applications tab.

  6. Click on Deploy Web Application.

  7. Select the appropriate values for the WAR File On and WAR File Path fields so as to point to the imqhttp.war file, which can be found in a directory that depends on your operating system (see Appendix A, Platform-Specific Locations of Message QueueTM Data).

  8. Enter a path in the Application URI field.

    The Application URI field value is the /contextRoot portion of the tunnel servlet URL:

    http://hostName :portNumber / contextRoot/tunnel

    For example, if you set the contextRoot to imq, the Application URI field would be:


  9. Enter the installation directory path (typically somewhere under the Sun Java System Web Server installation root) where the servlet should be deployed.

  10. Click OK.

  11. Restart the Web server instance.

    The servlet is now available at the following address:


    Clients can now use this URL to connect to the message service using an HTTP connection.
