Tomcat Support in EasyApache 4

benny@cpanel.net shared this idea 1 year ago
In Progress

As a server administrator I would like cPanel to natively support Tomcat in EasyApache 4.

Hey all! Back with another quick update. The EasyApache team is working on the UI and migration scripts right now, which is aimed at Version 76, which we anticipate being in a production tier at the end of Q3 or beginning of Q4 this year. The RPM updates could be published as soon as next week. I'll be back as soon as I have an update for everyone!

Either Tomcat with Easyapache 4 or apxs complied in Easyapache so that we can enable Tomcat manually

apxs is provided by ea-apache24-devel. You can install this via Yum, and you can compile what you need against EA4.


I hope this helps!

Hi,


We could recreate tomcat same as in cpanel servers with almost same functions. However very rarely some times tomcat keeps restarting. We think jsvc could help us solve this issue. Any help in how cpanel uses jsvc for tomcat ?

Unfortunately the feature request site isn't a good place to ask for this support. Feel free to open a thread on the cPanel forums.

Tomcat is a MUST HAVE for many of my clients. I can never move to EA4 without Tomcat support.

We need this for customers, as well. We tried using a 3rd-party plugin, cPanel4j (designed for EA3), which sort of worked on EA4 (but not really). We were working with the developer to fix the issues, but he suddenly stopped responding and his website went dark. We're going to lose a very large customer if we can't get tomcat available.

Any news about that? i´m using cPanel4J with easyapache 3 but my client is need to use multiple version of PHP, so i thought to change to easyapache 4, but i don´t know if cPanel4J works with easyapache 4 or if there is any 3rd party that makes tomcat run.

This request hasn't been picked up by our EasyApache team at this time, but if and when it is I'll definitely be back to update this thread.


Also, as a note: please avoid discussion of third party plugins on this site, as it detracts from the core of this request: adding support for Tomcat to EA4.

cPanel already use java for SOLR. Got the experience and configuration from EA3. It shouldn't be dificult to see Tomcat in EA4.

While adding java would be part of this, it's only one part of the development that would be needed to add Tomcat. I know it seems like it would be simple, but unfortunately it's not as simple as it seems.

Please don't leave us hanging. WHM is the best, but Tomcat support is key to many of the webapps on my server. To not support Tomcat in a newer version of EasyApache (that we've been depending on) is a major blow.

Two of our hosting brands are java focused, without having Tomcat support in newer versions puts us in a bad place.

This is not possible for us because we have many clients that only work with java.


That way we will never be able to upgrade to easyapache 4 on servers with tomcat.


We nead a solution for tomcat users.

We definitely need tomcat support in EasyApache 4, we have 6 clients using PHP and Java together in their app.

Please make it available. Thank you.

I've detailed my experience about upgrading to EasyApache 4 with Tomcat (easy-tomcat7).

I hope this workaround could suit any of you for the time being, as it does me.

Cheers

yes sure, it is very important to support tomcat in easyapache 4,

some payment api still just supporting jsp and we need to run jsp/servlet in our website beside php.

Thanks

HI!

Some payment gateways are still using servlets. We can't move to EA4 yet beacause of this.

(we have to rollback to EA3)


Is very important the support of tomcat in EA4

Hi,

There are Many Banks that only support (JSP/Servlet/Jar files) for their payment gateway integrations and for data encryption.

So Please supporting Tomcat in Next EA4 is very important, otherwise moving to EA4 will not be possible (very hard).

Please consider supporting Java in EA4 before you stop support EA3 which is in the beginning next year

Best Regards

Hi,

May I know the current status of Tomcat Support in Easy Apache 4 ? and in which whm version you plan to support it?

Awaiting for your reply

Good news all! Tomcat support in EasyApache 4 is currently being worked on and could be delivered as soon as May or June. We're not yet positive, but it may be a requirement that you upgrade to at least cPanel & WHM version 74 or newer to use Tomcat with EasyApache 4.


We have already gotten Tomcat packaged up as an RPM. The next step is to add the various connectors and configuration utilities. The goal is to provide, at a minimum, a similar experience to what we've historically provided to users of Tomcat with EasyApache 3. Once we have a version for testing, we'll be back with more information!

We know that a number of you will be upgrading from EasyApache 3 to EasyApache 4, so we have that in the back of our minds as we're developing as well. If nothing else, we'll be able to provide you steps to use when migrating, after we release.

Great news, thanks for update.


I also believe that you will stop supporting EasyApache 3 by the end of this year, and we hope that we can upgrade to version 4 as soon as you support tomcat


Best regards
