Hi, i sent a java activation request yesterday and i'm waiting for it.

 

somebody asked the same and you told him that will need some days.

 

then you said "The line for Java only moves if someone else loses their Java."

 

question: do i have to check the activation page each day or will i get an email when it's done? (which is less work - and less frustration - for me ;))`

 

If this is still necessary i would like to register my application (SoftwareWatchlist.war) just to save time.

 

Will this war file be checked on a regular base by the system? Just replace it and the new version will go live in some minutes?

 

Best regards

walter

Yes, Tommy usually takes 24 hours or less to get java access. Johnny can take quite a bit longer.

You do not get an email.

Once you have java access you can deploy it yourself at the bottom of the java request page.

Will this war file be checked on a regular base by the system? Just replace it and the new version will go live in some minutes?

The system doesn't automatically deploy new versions. If you deploy a .war it stays the same deployment until you click deploy again. If you change the name of the .war it counts as a new deployment and it can take up to 2 hours to deploy. For instance test_v1.war and you change it to test_v2.war counts as a new deployment, but if the new version has the same filename it only takes a few minutes to deploy.

btw: "If you are interested in deploying a servlet we recommend taking a look at the guide to get started wiki.helionet.org/Java_Servlet." does not work. Wiki does not exist. :(

Here's the thing with java... Enabling java for a user takes ridiculous amount of memory. Deploying a .war for a user takes even more memory than that. Deploying 2 .wars for one user would mean like 4 other people couldn't have java at all. Both of our servers are always at 100% capacity for java access. Actually Tommy is a little over capacity right now, and it's causing some downtime for the whole server from load spikes. Basically what I'm saying is if you need more than one .war deployed at a time you'll need to get a VPS https://www.heliohost.org/vps/

 

Oh thanks for pointing out that broken wiki link. We recently upgraded the wiki and not all of the articles have been copied over to the new one. All of the old wiki stuff is still available at wikiold though. http://wikiold.helio...rg/Java_Servlet

just wanted to know what's going on.
