Proxy Installation


All the proxy features are contained into the proxy.war file, an application you will have to deploy on your servlet container. The proxy's configuration is done with a Joomla-based component.

1) Put the proxy.war file in your application server's webapps folder.

2) Open the proxy/WEB-INF/spring/hibernate-config.xml and modify the parameters to match to your configuration.

Database connexion :

    <bean id="dataSource" class="org.springframework.jdbc.datasource.DriverManagerDataSource">
        <property name="driverClassName" value="com.mysql.jdbc.Driver" />
        <property name="url" value="jdbc:mysql://" />
        <property name="username" value="USERNAME" />
        <property name="password" value="PASSWORD" />

Some configurations need to specify "localhost" instead of ""

    <bean id="namingStrategy" class="org.easysdi.proxy.namingStrategy.CustomNamingStrategy">
        <property name="prefix">

4) Restart your application server.

5) Test your installation
