ServletExec/AS 2012

ServletExec/AS 2012 is a standalone web application server that hosts Java Servlets and JSPs.

OS / Web Server Support

ServletExec/AS 2012 is supported on the following systems:

Operating System Web Server
Windows Server 2012 R2
Windows 8.1
  • Microsoft IIS 8.5


  • Windows Server 2012
    Windows 8
  • Microsoft IIS 8.0


  • JDK / JRE Support

    Notes (All Platforms):

  • The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) does not contain a Java compiler, which is required by ServletExec to support JavaServer Pages (JSP); be sure to install a Java Development Kit (JDK), and not the JRE, if you plan to use JSPs.
  • The JDK or JRE must be installed on a local drive and not on a mapped network drive. If the JDK/JRE has been installed on a mapped network drive, ServletExec/AS will not be able to load and initialize the Java VM.

    ServletExec/AS 2012 supports the following JDK/JREs:

    You can download the Solaris 2.6 patch ReadMe from: ftp://sunsolve.sun.com/pub/patches/105181.readme

    Notes (UNIX/Linux Only):

  • In addition to the tested and supported UNIX operating system versions, ServletExec 6.0/AS should work on any UNIX variant when used with a supported version of Apache from www.apache.org (Apache 1.3.x, 2.0.x, or 2.2.x). (not Sun ONE or SJSWS). This is accomplished by providing the ServletExec web server adapters for the Apache HTTP Server in source-code form and utilizing the DSO capability of Apache. Because there are a number of potential manufacturer variants and/or release differences in UNIX systems that may cause the installation to fail, ServletExec is not fully supported in these environments. Correcting these types of problems comes with issues that are both technical and/or business-related and therefore are not officially supported. If you do have any problems, first contact ServletExec Tech Support at ServletExec Support. Be sure to include the installation log with your email so that the problems may be accurately analyzed.
    SE FAQ #89 may also be of interest.

  • In addition to a JDK 1.5-compliant VM, these installations require an ANSI C compiler (GNU version 2.8.1 or higher preferred. Vendor-specific C compilers are not supported) and a system-specific dynamic shared object loader.

    JDK / JRE Support

    Notes (All Platforms):

  • The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) does not contain a Java compiler, which is required by ServletExec to support JavaServer Pages (JSP); be sure to install a Java Development Kit (JDK), and not the JRE, if you plan to use JSPs.
  • The JDK or JRE must be installed on a local drive and not on a mapped network drive. If the JDK/JRE has been installed on a mapped network drive, ServletExec/AS will not be able to load and initialize the Java VM.

    ServletExec/AS 6.0 supports the following JDK/JREs:

    JDK/JRE Vendor JDK/JRE Version Vendor URL
    All Vendors 1.5 or higher Refer to Vendor

    ServletExec/AS 6.0 does not support JDK/JRE versions prior to 1.5
    (The Servlet 2.5 Specification mandates that JVM 1.5 or higher be used.)

    A Note about IBM's JDK 1.5 on AIX:
    IBM's JDK 1.5 on AIX places the java executable inside .../sdk/jre/bin/.
    But the lib folder alongside that bin folder does NOT contain tools.jar.
    tools.jar is found in a lib folder that is 1 level above that "standard" location.

    For example:
    .../sdk/lib/tools.jar
    (i.e. "above" the jre folder).

    So if javaHome is:
    /usr/installers/jvms/java5/sdk/jre
    then a symbolic link for tools.jar must be created if you wish SE to be able to find tools.jar out-of-the-box
    (tools.jar is needed in order to run JSP pages).
    Here is an example:
    ln -s ../lib/tools.jar /lib/tools.jar

    Web Server Adapters

    ServletExec/AS 6.0 includes web server adapters for the following web servers on UNIX:

    • Apache HTTP Server 2.2.0 - 2.2.x
    • Apache HTTP Server 2.0.43 - 2.0.x
    • Apache HTTP Server 1.3.4 - 1.3.x
    • Sun Java System Web Server [SJSWS 7.0u1]
    • Sun ONE Web Server 6.1

    Please refer to the ServletExec Installation Guide for more details.
