    Default Is this possible? Legality and Technical Issue

    We have a web app software that uses Tomcat, Mysql, and JSP,
    It is a Groupware that has Contacts, Calendar, our own email client (not mail server etc.)
    My idea is to use Zimbra by installing Zimbra first and then installing our own webbapp after Zimbra is installed.

    There are 2 questions... (one Legal and one technical)
    Since Zimbra is part Opensource and .. I am not sure if we can do this...
    1) I am thinking of using Tomcat, Mysql, and Java for our own applications... after installing Zimbra but must use different port such as 8080.

    2) If this is possible.. are we violating any zimbra or opensource rules.

    3) if all is possible.. we r thinking of sharing same contacts and calendar database as well.


    Thanks

    I'm not really sure what you are asking. Do you mean you want to use the zimbra mysql, tomcat etc for your own applications? If that's what you want then there's nothing stopping you doing that but I wouldn't recommend it, Zimbra is meant to run on a dedicated server and the components shouldn't be used for anything else. Could you describe what you're trying to do in more detail?
    Regards

    tangtan, as long as you use the opensource edition, it's perfectly 'legal' to do this, and technically it is perfectly possible (have a look on the wiki/forums, there are posts that will point you in the right direction), however as phoenix says it's strongly recommended not to do this. there's no guarantees anything you do will be preserved in an upgrade.

    Default thanks for reply

    I know that upgrading zimbra will be risky.
    If we ever do it.. We plan to have a separate folder for our files

    Either we use another port or something like this i found in wiki

    http://wiki.zimbra.com/index.php?title=ZimbraApache


    In future ... any upgrade.. we will first remove our database files. Webapps will not be affected.
