Q6: How do I run SOBA using the non-secured HTTP protocol in place of the secured HTTPS

If for whatever reason you cannot start up your Tomcat at the 8443 port, you can bypass this issue by following the
below procedure:

  • Locate the soba-security.xml file, and locate "requires-channel="https"."
  • Then, remove this entry.
  • Access soba with http://localhost:8080/soba instead.
