Jasper equivalent CABI web client

    hi All,


    In CABI 3.3, we can install SAP BOXI web client on DMZ zone (internet facing). And, we install CABI 3.3 SAP BOXI on application zone.


    Can we install CABI 6.x (jasper soft) web client on DMZ zone? It seems CABI 6.x do not have web client like SAP BOXI. Pls advise!

    Shawn_Walsh had an idea on this which is to use a revers proxy in front of the application server.  Apache reverse proxy is open source, but its not something we can "support" as there is no vendor support for it.  F5 would be the better way to go.  Shawn_Walsh do you have anything to add to this one?

    Hey Jon,


    That’s a great idea.  Either F5 / Apache are basically proxying the traffic behind the scenes for an end user.


    But theoretically, the main thing that we need from Jasper server in DMZ is:


    1)     End users -> Jasper’s Tomcat port


    2)     Jasper sever  --> Jasper database server


    3)     Jasper server --> MDB database connection


    4)     Jasper server --> SDM application layer connection (odbc server on APP or Primary/Secondary servers)


    From what I know, we do NOT have a Tiered installation of Jasper like we had in CABI-BOXI.   That architecture allowed folks to install Web Tier separated from Processing/Intelligence Tier.

    Hi All,


    Thank you for your reply.


    Yes, we can install jaspersoft server on DMZ zone, but customer is not allowing Jaspersoft server on DMZ zone connecting directly to server in DB zone even though it is only ODBC connection from jaspersoft server to DB server.


    In old CABI (SAP BOXI), We have setup SAP web tier (DMZ Zone) to connect application server on application zone and application server connect to DB server in DB zone. This is a prefer setup that customer is looking for. I guess we cannot do this in CABI 6.x (jaspersoft).
