FR - Operations on All Attributes

The last update added operations on peer single and owned by attributes. This is great because it allows for the adding of new references at the time that they are needed. It also allows for the use of more complex lookups on reference data. However from a UX point of view this is confusing, because...

FR - Query Type - Google Maps

Google Maps can be added in VP or can be added on a Form. Google Maps in a VP require a query to drive the mapping data (e.g. place marks, boundaries). Can we have Google Maps as a layout type for Queries as this would allow for operations to be used with a Google Map, which is much more complicated...

Re: A Distraction for a slow Friday... (Servoy RAD uses Eclipse)

Nice looking forms.

Drag and drop of fields from an available list would be great.

Not practical if Dev and Prod are same server - Proxy Con

I just thought of this a minute ago. If you only use one server for your development and use it for production then you have to expose your AIM/Tomcat server to the internet anyway - unless you can think of some fancy pants way to route the config tools port calls to the AIM server. If you are doing...

Re: Hiding or blocking Tomcat?

3306 access between AIM and the Database. Yes, this is what I thought and I haven't done this. Thanks for detailing ports. Obv that is the MySQL/Maria port I don't know what the MSSQLS port is. Also if you are using the Config Tool remotely from your AIM server then you have different challenges to...

Re: Hiding or blocking Tomcat?

If a reverse proxy is configured, Tomcat can be hidden or blocked from the web, how is this done? The directive uses proxy_pass command to rewrite customerName.yourDomain.com to internalIP:8080/AwareIM/... CURL to the URL shows NGINX as the responder. Yeah but Tomcat can still be accessed from the ...

Re: Reverse proxy issues with resources?

If you configure a reverse proxy, the URL may need rewriting in some cases as the public URL is different from the private URL. Have anyone experienced problems with this when using a reverse proxy with Aware? The URL is rewritten from the public URL to an internal private IP address. You would run...

Re: Extra Server Required - Proxy Con

To run a reverse proxy you have to set up another server, so one more to manage. The server doesn't have to be particularly hefty though as it is just managing connections and traffic. One thing I am wondering about is how much a revere proxy actually toll a system. I am using IIS as a reverse prox...

Letsencrypt is great and fully integrated with IIS reverse proxy via the ACME tool, how is this configured in NGINX?
certbot integrates SSL into NGINX
