Integrating ServletExec 5.0 with ArcIMS

Up one level

Which version of ServletExec is right for me?

These instructions apply only to ServletExec 5.0 with ArcIMS 9.0, using Apache web server (v. 1.3.x or 2.x) on the Windows operating system.
Instructions for integrating other versions of ServletExec and ArcIMS can be found here.

The instructions at this website are provided by New Atlanta Communications.
In addition to these instructions, Esri provides its own steps for installation and configuration of ServletExec and ArcIMS.
For ServletExec 5.0 AS for Apache 2.x on Windows and ArcIMS 9.0 click here.

Note: ServletExec 5.0 works fine with Apache 1.3.x, but if you want to use Apache 1.3.x with ArcIMS 9.0 and ServletExec, Esri may require you to use version 4.2 of ServletExec instead of version 5.0.
We say this because at the time of this writing, Esri did not offer any instructions for running SE 5.0/ArcIMS 9.0/Apache 1.3.x.
If using Apache 1.3.x, with ArcIMS 9.0, find out which versions of SE, that Esri will support.
From our standpoint, we see no reason why you could not use SE 5.0 with Apache 1.3.x as we have many, many non-ArcIMS customers who do this. But check with Esri to see if they will support this combination for use with ArcIMS 9.0.

A listing of all such Esri knowledge base articles can be found here.

Creating virtual directories on Apache:

Note: If you ran the ArcIMS 9.0 Post Installer, it should have already created the neccessary virtual directories in your Apache webserver automatically (by updating httpd.conf). In which case, you won't need to create them manually, and can simply skip this step.

Note: The information that follows on this page can also be found in the ArcIMS 9.0 Installation Guide.

After installing ArcIMS, you must create virtual directories for Manager, output, and website. A virtual directory is a mapped location on the Web server to a physical path on the hard drive.
Note: If you browsed to the location of your Web server root directory to create directories for output and website (the Web Site Working Directories) during ArcIMS installation, you don't need to create virtual directories for output and website (you can skip this step).

a. Stop the Apache Web Server.

b. Make a copy of Apache's configuration file (httpd.conf) and name the copy:

c. Open
\Program Files\ArcGIS\ArcIMS\Common\ApacheAlias.txt
in a plain text editor and copy the contents of the file to your clipboard.
Then close the file.

d. Open
in a plain text editor. Under the line which reads:
Alias /icons/ "<drive>:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache/icons/"

paste in all the lines you copied from the ApacheAlias.txt file.
Note: Replace the paths in these lines with the appropriate paths where necessary.

e. Save and close the httpd.conf file.

f. Start the Apache Web Server.

See "Step 5: Configure ArcIMS" in the ArcIMS Installation Guide for the final step required to get ArcIMS running.
