I was recently attempting to setup a Publish instance on a demo AEM 6.1 JEE server I am running. My goal was to set up more of a real world environment with various instances for the purpose of learning how the instances work together.
When spinning up a JEE version of AEM you get an Author instance by default. This documentation goes onto say that the Processing instance (when required) would typically be the JEE version and if I understand correctly the Author and Publish instances could technically be JEE or standalone versions, although the general recommendation seems to be to try and stick with standalone versions when possible. I realize the topologies using HTML Workspace and the AEMS Forms Workflow add-on (ie Process Management) are a little more complex and at least the Author instance will require JEE.
This documentation seems to be saying that the JEE server (jboss in this case) can run multiple instances of different types. Is this correct?
While the instructions seem fairly straight forward, step 1 mentions creating an "appserver profile" with no explanation of what this is or how to create it. There seems to be a presumption the reader should know what this is. Forgive me if this is common knowledge but I'm not clear on what this is or what the context of this term is. It sounds to me like it's a jboss term.
I've googled this term but did not come up with anything meaningful, either from an AEM or Jboss perspective.
To summarize the information from both of these links, there seems to be more than one way to configure Publish instances (1 using standalone versions and another using JEE servers).
Can anyone talk about the ins and outs of these different options and which one might be recommended over another?
If the "appserver profile" method is still a valid and viable approach in AEM 6.1, can anyone expand on how to create an "appserver profile" and/or how to set up a author/publisher instances with the AEM JEE version?
Ok, so tried doing what you mentioned in last thread, did that to the first instance, and it broke it, to the point i had to re-install, couldn't restart it afterwards properly.
Tried it on second instance (where i i have a copy of the jboss folder) and that didn't work either.
Guys, thank you so much for your help thus far.
Again i yet to have this working, the documentation says its doable, the community says its doable, but yet, nothing i try gets that second instance working.
We paid so much money for this, and to get a software that is so difficult to run on first try, is new to me.... So now, i have first instance running again, could i get an actual step-by-step of what is exactly needed for that second instance to run???
I'M RUNNING AEM 6.3, JBoss 6.4 i believe on windows server. I'm using the "aemforms_server_6_3_0_jboss_all_win.zip" for the .exe file. and following the info in this PDF: "Installing and Deploying AEM forms on JEE Using JBoss Turnkey".
You test this out and let me know via private email if you prefer, just let me know if someone is going to look into this.
