Is anyone aware of BlazeDS being supported on a Tomcat 7 installation, specifically for running against Java 6? I am hosting Java code in a war file that will only build successfully against Java 6 and need to have BlazeDS deployed into a Tomcat 7 installation.
Thoughts / ideas?
BlazeDS 4 requires Tomcat 7, which requires Java 6. Tomcat 7 is more secure, runs faster and requires less resources than Tomcat 6.
BlazeDS has no hard dependancy on its servlet container. It is also worth noting that we don't "support" BlazeDS at all - you must buy LiveCycle Data Services to get an officially supported platform. The current release version of LCDS (3.1) does not suport Tomcat 7.
All that being said, we developed BlazeDS on Tomcat 6. Tomcat 7 is too new for us to have even tried it.
Thanks, Tom. I'll follow up with the FB team to see if this is a bug.
BTW, I attended a Tomcat 7 security seminar yesterday, and it seems that
Tomcat 7 is much more secure, faster and smaller than Tomcat 6. Apache
is recommending that Tomcat 7 replace Tomcat 6 in production.
