This week's book giveaway is in the Other Open Source APIs forum. We're giving away four copies of Storm Applied and have Sean Allen, Peter Pathirana & Matthew Jankowski on-line! See this thread for details.
I have a war file that must work on 4 different domain names located on the same server.
domain1.com, domain1.se, domain2.com, domain2.se ( on the same server )
The model for these websites are exactly identical it is only lanuage and view that differs. The websites must be handled from one administration and I want to use Hibernate for ORM because they all point to the same database.
Is this possible? If I have virtual hosts in tomcat or JBoss it is 4 different instances of the war file that is loaded and what will happen with the data then? Can hibernate handle this? and how? Can this be done or do you suggest some other solution? It is vital that all stores can be administrated from one location.
I have seen such a situation. Here we created a factory pattern for getting sessionFactory objects. At the start of application the session factories for all the different data sources are created . This factory is then used to initialise the session factory object by looking at some criteria like users Language from the context. Thus for English the user can use session from english session factory or he can use session from french session factory if he has FRENCH language in his user context.
