Hi all,
I have my Forte for Java CE 3.0 running in my workstation (Win98) and couldn't integrate it with an iPlanet Web Server 6.0 running on our development server (Windows 2000 AS). I have the iPlanet istallation directory mapped in my hard drive. The iWS instance under the "Installed Servers" node has no contents on it, unlike the default Tomcat Web server, so I couldn't start/restart iWS. The Forte nor the iWS documentation doesn't specify if both Forte and iWS should be on the same machine or not. It just states that the two can be integrated. What could be possibly wrong? Or is it impossible to integrate at all(Drats!)?

Hello,
I had not tried with iWS but iAS 6.0 can be intergrated with Forte CE 3.0 and shouldnot matter if it is remotely installed as long as the installation path is mapped (and also the domain is a valid domain from which the calls to restart are accepted).

Hi Jignesh,
Yep, Forte CE 3.0 could be integrated with the iPlanet Application Server (which, in turn, uses iWS) no matter their positions are in the known and unknown universe as long as they can see each other in a network. This support info came direct from one of the guys from the Forte team. This includes a detailed step-by-step workaround (please see below), but sadly my company doesn't yet have iAS ($$$). Thanks.

1) you have to have iPlanet Web Server and iPlanet Application server installed locally
(that means you should be running Windows NT 4.0 SP6 or Windows 2000 instead
of your current Windows 98)
2) after installation rename all *.TMP files found in forte_install_dir and its sub-directories
to .JAR
3) start Forte (or restart it after step 2)
4) have remote hostname ort and administrator username and his password handy
5) go to Runtime tab of Explorer in Forte for Java 3.0
6) choose Server Registry > Installed Servers > iPlanet Application Server 6.0 >
Server Instances, right-click on it.
7) click 'Add a Remote iPlanet Application Server Instance'
New window with Properties of remote host pops up.
8) fill in port number, admin user name and password. I've used the same name
for Connector URL and Host Name (and deleted http:// from the beginning and / from
the end of these fields)
9) right-click given instance and choose 'Server Status'
10) if everything is fine you should be able to click 'Start Engines'. If this button
is greyed out please re-check settings from step 8.
11) right-click given instance in Runtime tab and 'Set As Default'.
Now you should be able to deploy to a remote server without any problems.
