This post will discuss about the Tuxedo directories and configuration Files.

  • Tuxedo remains the centre of the application server.
  • There are many advantages to having an application server performing transaction management for you.  Probably the biggest advantage is the thin Tuxedo and Jolt communication protocols available for communicating with the client.
  • Without an application server, the client has to communicate with the database in SQL.  The work done by server processes in the domain can be broken down roughly as follows, divided between “Business” servers and Tuxedo
  • Tuxedo and Jolt must be installed on any host system that you plan to use as an application server.  Remember that Jolt is simply a Java-enabled version of Tuxedo.
