The think http server delivered with jConnect is ok but when
I deploy into our (large) intranet I will be facing several
different http server environments.

What is the Sybase solution for the production deployment
of jConnect applets in such an environment?

regards, like your work

Hi Ernie,

You do not need to use the cascade webserver as your primary webserver.
You may use any other webserver to serve your applets. The cascade
webserver is currently the only webserver that can act as your
proxy. The proxy property will need to point to your cascade
webserver in your applet.

Hope this helps,

-lance

Thanks, but...

What does this Cascade Server do that a Netscape Proxy Server
can not do?

Why is it so special?

I am uncomfortable having to live with a proprietary proxy solution
when i am working diligently toward keeping my java environment open.

The Cascade server supports the HTTP CONNECT Method extension.
The CONNECT method we use is based on an Internet Draft which
Netscape submitted to the IETF in 1995, but... it appears that
they have not implemented it as it was specified there.

Nothing terribly complicated about this method -- take a look
at
$JDBC_HOME/uk/org/cascade/sybase/http/HTTPConnectMethod.java
to see what it does.

As for your other question - Sybase intends to provide a Jaguar CTS
JDBC Gateway package in the near future. This package would replace
the HTTP/JDBC Gateway for Enterprise/Internet Scalability.
