InterPlay deployment

Typically, the InterPlay application is deployed in its own Tomcat server and communicates with other components that are installed on other application servers.

The following graphic illustrates this type of deployment:

InterPlay deployment

The following sections describe the elements involved in this type of deployment.

AI Suite application servers

AI Suite application servers are computers where AI Suite infrastructure components (Designer, Report Server and Administration), Datastore, AccountingIntegrator, and other components (PassPort, Sentinel and Composer) are installed and run.

InterPlay server

The InterPlay server is a computer where the InterPlay application is installed and run.

The following are installed and run in the InterPlay server:

  • InterPlay – web application that is used to author and recycle data. The formats and the UI configuration are defined in Designer. The InterPlay web application provides services for its clients using either AMF protocol or Web Services.
  • InterPlay installation folder – contains InterPlay runtime libraries and scripts.
  • InterPlay tool – batch application that is used to execute different InterPlay services. The InterPlay tool connects to the Database application server through JDBC over a socket connection and to Interplay Web application through Web Services and XML over HTTPS.
  • InterPlay UI – Flex (Adobe Flash) application that runs in a browser and connects to the InterPlay Web application using AMF over HTTPS.

Database server

A database server is a computer where a database application server such as Oracle Database or Microsoft SQL Server, is installed and run.

The InterPlay Web application and the InterPlay command line tool connect to the database application server through JDBC.

Communication channels

The following table displays the communication channels between the InterPlay module and the target components: the default port and the type of communication between the module that initiates the request (rows) and the target component (columns).
