Using Samba to Access Files From Apache/Tomcat?
I have recently replaced a Win2K/IIS server with a new server running SLES 9/Apache/Tomcat for a major facilities application. I've got the site (jsp) up and running and pulling data from a SQL Server database.
Now, the next step is to determine how best to pull Autocad files into a shared directory so that the *.dwf files can be displayed by the web applicaiton. The autocad files are stored on a Win2003 File Server inside a domain on a shared folder.
I'm guessing I'd want to setup a SMB link to the Windows server from the SLES machine and have that link mounted.
Is this a good strategy? Are there any issues you can forsee?
