What's the difference between Livecycle install OS and App Server ?

Avatar

Level 2

Hi Everyone,

Is there any difference in installing between both OS Windows Or Linux ?

I'm confused here given so many variations and different possibilities eg.

Windows - JBoss / Web Logic / Websphere

Linux - JBoss / Web Logic / Websphere

Does anyone here found any good combination in the production ? please share it here.

Thanks,

Albert

It all depends on what the customer's IT infrastructure consists of.  IBM shops tend to use WebSphere/AIX with DB2 as the database.  Open source shops tend to have JBoss/Linux.  Oracle shops tend to have WebLogic/Solaris with Oracle as the database.

Ah, ok, so there is no limitations or difference in using the different OS and the Application server ?

eg. cannot talk to SharePoint or something else ?

It really comes down to a perference or familiarity that the Customer may have. There are certainly performance considerations between different combinations but all combinations will work fine. The one key consideration to keep in mind is if you are using PDF/G to create PDF from office docs then the Windows solution provides better fidelity fo documents (it uses native Windows apps instead of Open Office to do the conversion).

If you are new to this then I woudl suggest the turnkey solution where LiveCycle install will load a JBoss and MySql server for the DB. These are restricted licenses but for a dev machine they are fine.

Hope that helps

Great, as long as the Livecycle PDF can interact with SharePoint then it should be fine and my request fulfilled.

I'll install eerything in one server now then.

Windows Server 2008 R2

SQL Server 2008 Enterprise R2

SharePoint Server Enterprise 2010

Adobe Livecycle 2.5 JBoss edition

LiveCycle SharePoint connector

Turnkey software.?

Do not install the LiveCycle server and the SharePoint server on the same physical box. Put them on two separate servers.

what about he Turnkey server ?

Which one is suitable for SharePoint 2010 collaboration with livecycle ?

1. Windows Server 2008 R2 with Turnkey only

or

2. Windows Server 2008 R2 with JBoss ES2 server and SharePoint 2010 Connector ?

I'm confused here again.

Turnkey will be fine ...it will load JBoss, MySQL and a 64 bit JVM

thanks for your reply sir,

I just found out that the client requirement is SQL Server 2008 as the database, therefore i must use manual install without the Turnkey support (-_-)"

Hi Albert,

You can try exploring the partial turnkey option for JBoss. It provides you a Windows service for your JBoss application server and also helps you configure databases other than MySQL through LiveCycle Configuration Manager. It is very similar to a pure JBoss Turnkey installation.

Thanks,
