The third-party components that are required to use the WebFOCUS servlet are included with App Studio. App Studio can install and configure Apache™ Tomcat for use as both a web server and application server.
The following third-party components are provided for use with App Studio. If they are not present on your machine, you have the option to install them with App Studio:
Apache Tomcat is required for the App Studio Help system even if you are using another web and/or application server supported with WebFOCUS.
Without a web and/or application server, you can create and process reports by connecting App Studio to an instance of WebFOCUS installed somewhere else. However, files cannot be processed or stored locally without a web or application server on the App Studio machine.
Note: The version of Tomcat that is included with App Studio is installed for the Help system, and for local and stand-alone development. The Tomcat App Studio version can be installed and configured along with another instance of Tomcat that you may have already installed. You have the option to install the Tomcat packaged with App Studio under the default directory,…\ibi\tomcat\, or in another location of your choice. If we detect an existing version, you can select to use that installation and allow the installation to configure the required context roots. Tomcat will be configured using default ports. If you already have an instance of Tomcat installed, for example, a 6.0 version, and you also install a version 7.0 of Tomcat through App Studio, you need to ensure that the two versions do not use the same ports. See Configuring Additional Web and/or Application Servers for additional information on how to configure Tomcat ports.
