adobe content server

Random thought on yesterday's success

Dear Apache and Tomcat Projects:

I know that you’ve rolled AJP into the Apache project, and kept Tomcat off on its own. That’s fine.

But, when I’ve got a web app that requires a match between a URL-based public key and a the URL which the app is serving from it is really annoying that half the information I need to successfully proxy the connection (because we only have one public-facing production server) is in the documentation for mod_proxy_ajp/mod_proxy (how to set Apache to proxy) while the other half is buried in the “Connector” settings for Tomcat (how to get Tomcat to “lie” to the java app about being proxied).

On a side note: Could someone tell Adobe that Content Server needs a real support team, one that actually knows about all the possible real-world settings in which someone might setup an app server to run ACS?

That is all. Thanks.


Wait. What?

We just got our Netlibrary books ADE enabled, woot! It will to be a pain getting people to use it though - so much setup. Most of our campus is very e-stuff resistant. All that downloading and login creating when they wanted paper all along. *sigh*

NetLibrary into ADE? Are they allowing that? Are they hosting the Content Server? Is your library hosting it? ‘Cause NetLibrary do web-based PDF display, no? How are presses feeling about that? (Especially as quite a few of them are using our services to sell ADE-protected books. Including University of Alabama Press.)

Also, one nice thing about ADE is that once you have an Adobe ID, you can use it on any device/program that handles the ADE credentials. BlueFire Reader on the iOS devices, OverDrive or Aldiko on Android devices, Sony Reader natively, and nook natively.

Plus, y'know, Google Books uses the ADE format too.
