Find out more details on how to install the MobileFirst Server components on Apache Tomcat.

Make sure that you have fulfilled the requirements as documented in Apache Tomcat prerequisites.

Application server settings

You must activate the Single Sign On Valve. For example:

<Valve className="org.apache.catalina.authenticator.SingleSignOn"/>

Optionally, you might want to activate the memory realm if the users are defined in tomcat-users.xml. For example:

<Realm className="org.apache.catalina.realm.MemoryRealm"/>

Topology constraints

The MobileFirst Server administration service, the MobileFirst Server live update service, and the MobileFirst runtime must be installed on the same application server. The context root of the live update service must be defined as <adminContextRoot>config. The context root of the push service must be imfpush. For more information about the constraints, see Constraints on the MobileFirst Server components and MobileFirst Analytics.
