Reactor Web Services

Reactor Web Services provide endpoints for reactor operations.

Reactor Web Services make possible to reach the chemical functionality provided by ChemAxon's product Reactor.

Reactor Web Services application is available in two modes:

  1. As part of a microservices system

  2. As standalone web application

Microservices system mode

In microservices system mode the Reactor Web Service runs together with Config service, Discovery service and Gateway service. These three services are mandatory and optionally other services can also be part of the system. All configuration must be done in the Config module.

The default configuration applies to the microservices system mode.

The web application runs on host <server-host> and listens on port <gateway-server-port>.

Standalone web application mode

In standalone web application mode the Reactor Web Service runs alone, without the Config service, Discovery service and Gateway service (however the installer installs them, as well).

The default configuration must be changed according to the standalone web application mode; set

eureka.client.enabled=false in file, and and in file.

All configuration must be done in the Reactor Web Services module.

The web application runs on host <server-host> and listens on port <gateway-server-port>.
