Fastpath Client and IIS 5

I am a real noobie to this but I am wanting to use webchat for our e-commerce site. I have fastpath configured on oour openfire server, but what I guess I am not understanding is how o deploy the client to our website. In the documentation it states to place the webchat.war in the webapps directory but there isn’t one. Once it is deployed do you just use a hyperlink to the chat server? Please help and thanks!

That file is a java application that requires tomcat or some other such java server to run it. You can run it from the openfire plugins folder but that would require exposing your openfire management port to the world.

After the war file is deployed on the right type of server, you then need to embed the javascript on your website to call your fastpath session from the server. This is a sample:

<!-- Insert this snippet where you would like the Chat button image to show up -->

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript"

        src="http://www.example.com/webchat/jivelive.jsp">

</script>

<script>

    showChatButton('your@workgroup.example.com');

</script>

<!-- End of Fastpath Snippet -->

Is it possible to run Tomcat and IIs on the same box?

yes
