Running Multiple Custom Domains on GlassFish Server

Let's see how to easily set up a few domain names for Java application hosted with GlassFish container servlet, which combines enterprise-class facilities and open-source cost efficiency. It's an enterprise-ready application server with true interoperability and a wide range of features including superior documentation, configuration and administration.

To run multiple domains for your Java site on GlassFish server just follow the next simple steps.

  1. Log into the
    Jelastic Manager
    and click Create environment button.
  2. Pick GlassFish as an application server and specify the cloudlet limits for it. Then type your environment name and click Create button.


  3. In a matter of seconds your environment will be successfully created and appears on the dashboard in the list of environments.


  4. After that you need to add a CNAME record or set an A Record, as it is described in Custom Domains document.

  5. For binding your custom domain names click the Settings button next to your environment and choose the Custom domains setting. Then enter your domains in the appropriate field (we will use myapplication.com and myapplication.org as examples) and click Bind button.


  6. Note: We've put entries into our hosts file for local testing so this will work only from our machine, which has those hosts' entries.

  7. When you created the environment, Jelastic sent you the link and credentials to GlassFish DAS node. Log in to the admin panel using these credentials and navigate to the Applications tab in order to deploy your application.


  8. After your application is successfully deployed navigate to Configurations > default-config > Virtual Servers block and click New button in order to create a new virtual server.


  9. Enter the ID for new server, in the Hosts field specify bounded to your environment custom domains separated by commas, then select the suitable http listener and pick the necessary web module.


  10. Save the changes and voilà! Now you can ensure that your application is available via the all specified domain names.


  11. As you can see, it's very easy to manage application custom domains with Jelastic's rich set of tools. Enjoy!
