OHF Bridge question [message #35816] Tue, 23 October 2007 20:57 Go to next message

Hi all
Is is possible to deploy the OHF Bridge webservice in IIS instead of
Apache Tomcat? If this is not possible, do let me know what webserver can
host the OHF Bridge webservice.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
Venkat

Hi Venkat,

Interesting question. The OHF Bridge, at it's core, is simply a Java
servlet. Any container that can run a servlet should, in principle, be
able to run the Bridge. I know it's possible to use some internal
bindings of IIS to redirect a request to a servlet container, but it
still requires something like Tomcat or Jetty or WebSphere behind the
scenes.

We've tried the Bridge in Tomcat and Jetty. It would also probably run
fine in WebSphere or JBoss or WebLogic. For Connectathon purposes, I'd
stick with the tried-and-true method of running a standalone Tomcat
instance with the Bridge in it. But it'd be worth exploring a little
further.

Thanks,
-Matt

Thanks for the info Matt.
I have the following questions on the same subject.

1. If I can do the ISAPI filter redirection from IIS, will I be
re-directing the requests to the Tomcats default web server or will it be
directly to the Tomcat servlet engine running the OHF Bridge Servlet.

2. The OHF website talks about a POJO for the OHF Bridge. When would this
be used compared to the IHE plugin?

3. If I decide to use the OHF Bridge webservice from my application, won't
the webservice calls need to be secured (SSL-based)? If that is the case,
will I be required to install any SSL software in the machine where the
OHF webservice is installed so that the calls to the bridge are https and
not http. If this is the case, will Apache Tomcat support this?

4. Where can I get the latest builds for both IHE and the bridge? Will
they also include the XDS.b implementation too?

Thanks
Venkat
