Simplicité on AWS elastic Beanstalk®
Simplicité® instances can easily be deployed on the AWS Elastic Beanstalk® platform.
This document consider you are using a standard Simplicité® cloud instance template cloned from Git.
Provision a database
It is required that you provision an external database as a service such as a AWS RDS® database instance.
Once provisionned, load the appropriate template database dump into the database.
Then use the configuration items (host, port, database name, username, password) of the database instance to configure the datasource descriptor
Make sure to use the
org.apache.tomcat.jdbc.pool connection pool implementation for your datasource by adding this explicit attribute:
This is required because default Apache DBCP2 connection pool implementation is not deployed by default on AWS Elastic Beanstalk® Tomcat environments.
Note you can't use an ephemeral instance using an embedded HSQLDB database because it is not compliant with
org.apache.tomcat.jdbc.poolconnection pool implementation.
Provision a Elastic Beanstalk® environment
Using the web console or the
eb CLI, create a Tomcat environment with a minimum of 512Mb max memory.
Deploy the instance
The JDBC driver suitable for your database must be copied in the
Then package the WAR file and, using the web console or the
eb CLI, upload it to your Elastic Beanstalk® environment.
Use BLOBs for documents
The document need to be stored into the database as BLOBs. To do so configure the
DOC_DIR system parameter as
BLOB and clear the cache.
Once reconnected force a document synchronize to load all initial documents as BLOBs.
