Deployment

How do I sign my Servoy plugins and beans?

Servoy has some tutorials on their wiki at: http://wiki.servoy.com/display/tutorials/JAR+signing  However, in this example, I'm going to show using a different certificate provider specifically for code signing purposes.  For this, we will get a Code Signing Certificate from Comodo. They have been in the JRE by default since Windows 98, so you shouldn't have any problems with it.

Why are my Clients unable to connect to the Servoy Application Server?

1.  Start with the obvious.  Is Servoy running on the server?  To test, point your browser on the server to localhost:8080 and try to install the client locally

2.  Is another service running on the server on port 8080 or 1099.

3.  Is the firewall on the Server?  Make sure 8080 and 1099 are open.

4.  Is there a firewall between the client and Server?  Again, make sure 8080 and 1099 are open.

How do I link directly to a solution?

You can use a URL with parameters, or by folder directory.  2 examples below

Servoy Webclient:

http://localhost:8080/servoy-webclient/solutions/solution/solutionName

Servoy Smart Client:

 http://localhost:8080/servoy-client/servoy_client.jnlp?solution=solutionName

 

You can also open a solution, and run a specific method, and pass parameters. This example shows how to do it in Web Client. Replace servoy-webclient with servoy-client to use the Smart Client.

How can I increase the speed of my solution over the WAN in a low bandwidth environment?

1. The trips back to the Servoy Applicaiton Server are determined by:

- how often you call databaseManager.saveData()

- how often you call databaseManager.saveData()

- how much you use databaseManager.getDataSetByQuery()

- the amount of data / related tables you display on a form

- how many forms you show (since that means more data)

- searches, edits, creation, and deletion

If you can cut down the trips back to the Application Server, then your performance in low bandwidth environmet will be increased.

When a user clicks to launch Servoy Client from the web install page, why does't Servoy launch?

1.  Is Java installed on the client?  Servoy requires that java is installed prior to installing Servoy Client.

2.  How is their browser handleling jnlp files?  In order for the Servoy Client to launch, when the jnlp file is download, Java must run/open the jnlp file, which will start the installation process.  Some possible issues...

- The jnlp file just downloads to their desktop (because the browser's settions don't auto-launch the file).

How can I connect to Microsoft SQL Server?

MS SQL Server ships with a JDBC driver, however, there is a better, faster driver that is available!

The JTDS driver is open-source type-4 JDBC driver for MS SQL versions 6.5 - 2005.  The homepage is http://jtds.sourceforge.net/

Connection settings are at: http://jtds.sourceforge.net/faq.html under getting started
