Chapter 11. Example - runtime environment
This chapter discusses the configuration we used in the implementation and
testing of the WebSphere Commerce Suite, Marketplace Edition for this
redbook.Because the WebSphere Commerce Suite, Marketplace Edition was
still being developed when we were developing this redbook, we were not
able to implement the Marketplace Edition on more that one system.
Therefore for our testing we installed the IBM HTTP Web server, DB2, LDAP
WebSphere Commerce Suite, Marketplace Edition, WebSphere Application
Server, Advanced Edition, Net.Data and WebSphere Commerce Suite all on
one system. This is not the preferred way of implementing a production
system. There are several ways that a system can be implemented that will
work in a production environment. The following lists several ways of doing a
1. Everything on one system except the data
This would be a good implementation if the system had very low traffic or if
the system was going to be used only for a select number of consumers.
The reason why this system would not be used in a high value
e-Marketplace is because the e-Marketplace could very well become to
much for the system to handle and cause the system to be come unstable.
Also in a double system configuration there is no redundancy, so if there
was a system failure your users would not be able to access your
Figure 48 shows a schematic of this double system implementation.
