Sun Java System Message Queue 3.7 UR1 Administration Guide

Deploying the HTTPS Tunnel Servlet on Sun Java System Web Server

This section describes how you deploy the HTTPS tunnel servlet as a .war file on the Sun Java System Web Server. You can verify successful HTTPS tunnel servlet deployment by accessing the servlet URL using a Web browser. It should display status information.

Before deploying the HTTPS tunnel servlet, make sure that JSSE .jar files are included in the Web server’s classpath. The simplest way to do this is to copy the files jsse.jar, jnet.jar, and jcert.jar to WebServer_TOPDIR/bin/https/jre/lib/ext .

ProcedureTo Deploy the https Tunnel Servlet as a .war File

  1. In the browser-based administration GUI, select the Virtual Server Class tab. Click 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 modified imqhttps.war file (see Step 2. Modifying the HTTP Tunnel Servlet .war File’s Descriptor File.)

  8. Enter a path in the Application URI field.

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

    https://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 URL:


    Clients can now use this URL to connect to the message service using a secure HTTPS connection.

Disabling a Server Access Log

You do not have to disable the server access log, but you will obtain better performance if you do.

ProcedureTo Disable the Server Access Log

  1. Select the Status tab.

  2. Choose the Log Preferences Page.

    Use the Log client accesses control to disable logging.
