Global embedded HTTP server

The global embedded HTTP server is available after a community adds an HTTP transport for receiving messages from partners. Communities can share it. You can change the server’s port and advanced options.

To change settings:

  1. Select System management > Manage embedded servers. Or, click Trading configuration on the toolbar.
  2. On the Communities page, click the link near the bottom of the page named Manage all embedded servers.

This server only is for HTTP. For HTTPS have a community add an embedded server (see HTTP (embedded) fields).

The following are the configuration fields for the server.

Settings tab

  • Host – The fully qualified domain name of the computer on which the embedded server runs. The trading engine detects this setting; you cannot change it.
  • Port – The port on which the server listens for connection requests.

Advanced tab

  • Minimum threads – The least number of threads Activator must dedicate to the server.
  • Maximum threads – The largest number of threads Activator can dedicate to the server.
  • Read timeout (seconds) – The maximum number of seconds the server waits when reading data from a partner.
  • Restartable minimum size (KB) – The minimum size of a file that triggers the system to continue the file transfer at the point interrupted before the connection was lost. The minimum size is in kilobytes. The system only resumes transfers of files that meet this minimum. The system starts over the transfer of smaller files whose processing is interrupted.
  • Temporary file lifetime (hours) – If attempt restarts is selected, how long the system retains a file whose transfer has been interrupted while waiting for the connection to be restored. This temporary file enables the system to resume the transfer at the point interrupted.
