Installing the Module for tc Server

  1. If you do not already have tc Server, download and install a trial version from the vFabric tc Server download page. These instructions require tc Server 2.1 or greater. (If you are using an older version of tc Server, you should set up the plug-in without templates: HTTP Session Management Module for Tomcat.)
  2. If you do not already have the GemFire module, download an evaluation copy of HTTP Session Management for tc Server Module from the vFabric GemFire download page. Note that the GemFire module includes within it the GemFire software.
  3. Unpack the module into the "$CATALINA_HOME$/templates" directory, so that it creates gemfire-p2p and gemfire-cs subdirectories within the tc Server templates directory.
Note: The GemFire evaluation license allows you to create up to three GemFire processes. To use GemFire with additional processes, refer to How GemFire Manages Licenses.
