With WebSphere 5 is the HTTPServer now embedded within WebSphere 5. Or is it still a separate service as it was with WebSphere 4. I can not see any reference to HttpServer within my Settings/Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Services. But the samples in my sample Gallery work, therefore it looks as if the HttpServer is embedded. Thanks for any help. Tony
Since WAS 4.0, there is already an embedded HTTPServer with each AppServer. The external webserver uses HTTP(no longer OSE) to reroute requests to AppServer(servlet Engine). Also this embedded HTTPServer serves for webservice requests. IBM still recommend having an external webserver for performance/security/scalability for production deployment.
