The installation procedure depends on which servlet container you're deploying it to. There are also multiple ways to install servers on any given servlet container. In all instances:
- Install the server into its own dedicated container (e.g., not shared with another web application)
- Deploy the WAR file at the root context of the servlet container.
- The server should run as a different user than the system user.
Installing Parasoft Virtualize Server on the Same System as Parasoft CTP
If you are installing the SOAtest and Virtualize Server on the same system as Parasoft CTP, be sure to install the server into its own dedicated servlet container.
Windows, MacOS, and Linux are supported. For specific OS versions, refer to the core SOAtest and Virtualize system requirements sections:
The following servlet containers have been tested and are supported for SOAtest and Virtualize Server WAR file deployments:
Although the WAR file may be deployed to other servlet containers, Parasoft only supports the containers specified in this documentation and cannot guarantee that the server will start or function as expected when deployed to other containers.
Clustering provided by servlet containers is not supported, but you can configure a cluster of SOAtest and Virtualize Servers behind a load balancer to increase scaling capabilities and enable fault tolerance. See Setting Up a Cluster of Virtualize Servers Behind a Load Balancer.
