I need to use ARIS via Web browser using tomcat. The web client connection now needs to be set using tomcat web server

While installing business publisher I  believe the tomcat has already been installed as I see in my ARIS installation directory, in the business publisher directory the tomcat folder.

Also the business publisher I am using is via port 9090 (default). I guess it is via tomcat as i see the tomcat home page

If I want to use ARIS via web client, will the same tomcat serve the purpose? or do i need to install another tomcat.

What are the steps I need to follow to configure my URL for accesing ARIS via web browser using tomcat. Is there any manual or documentation I can refer to?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks & Regards,

<Context path="/arisclient" docBase="D:\ARIS7.2\server\html" debug="0" reloadable="false" crossContxt="true"></Context>

Hi Jens,

Thanks a billion for your help!!!.

I really appreciate your support. I am now able to access ARIS via webclient using tomcat

The web link after configuring  tomcat, I got is


where 9090 is the port we are using for  business publisher and now for ARIS web client via tomcat.

 However Just wanted to know if there is a way to customise this URL, I mean without the port number being displayed. eg : http://localhost/arisclient   (without 9090 as above)

If yes then I would like to customise this before I pass on the link to the users.

Once again I thank you for all the support.

Thanks & Regards,
