My first session this moring at JavaOne was Deploying Java Applications on the Web. It was quite good as it covered some of the newer techniques that have been added to the latest 1.6_x updates. As with any good session, I walked away with some knowledge that I hadn't entered with, but what struck me the most was the legacy of JavaFX. While JavaFX was mentioned (in passing once...
The Scala programming language can assist us with the development of enterprise products that target both the Java EE and the .NET platforms.
This is a relatively long entry about OpenMQ covering everything from installation up to clustering and load balancing. If you want to start using OpenMQ or you are looking to use it in a highly distributed system, this entry is for you. this entry discuss everything from installation to clustering
Since GlassFish v3 is built on top of OSGi, it is already capable of being embedded in an existing OSGi runtime. The bootstrapping code was slightly complicated IMO. Recently when Apache Camel committer Charles Moulliard asked me some questions around embedding GlassFish v3 in an OSGi runtime, I decided to revisit the bootstrap module in order to simplify it so that I had less explaining to do. I recently did exactly that. In this blog, I show how using a simple BundleActivator, one can embed GlassFish in an OSGi runtime.
How can you validate your amazon AMI image without needing to upload it to the AWS service to find out that it doesn't even boot? It took me 3 upload attempts to fix my image and installing a bare metal hypervisor wasn't an option on my desktop. After a little bit of research I pulled together a very simple script
Yet another technique for checking version of Java installed
This a rather long article covering OpenESB (Open ESB) administration and management along with discussing a complete sample application shows how to develop solutions based on OpenESB
In this entry we discuss what Application Server Management Extension (AMX) and Java Management Extensions (JMX) are, how we can use them to develop custom administration, management and monitoring solutions for GlassFish v3. The article contains tens of diagrams and samples.
This article shows how we can use Spring Secirity and Spring remoting together to create a Spring Service in a Web application, secure it using Spring Security and later on invoke it from a Java SE application.
This blog shows steps to create a CSR (certificate signing request) send it to godaddy to get it signed and finally how to install it in GlassFish application server.
I decided to write down the answer for some questions which my book's readers email me or ask me via twitter in my weblog so everyone can benefit from the answers. Here is the answer to the first question which involves custom security realms.
GlassFish supports 5 types of security realms out of the box which are sd follow:
File Realm: Usefull for development and testing purposes. GlassFish...
Java EE Security refcard is available for download. This refcard covers Java EE 6 security and discuss how each application server supports the specs. The refcard covers authentication, authorization, and transport security in Web Application, EJB application and web services by introducing the concept and the related annotations and deployment descriptors which help us realize the concept.
This article introduces GlassFish CLI or command line administration console. GlassFish provides several administration channels; one of them is the command line administration interface or CLI from now on. The CLI has many unique features which make it very convenient for command line advocates and new administrators which like to get familiar with CLI and use it in the daily basis. The CLI allows us to manage, administrate, and monitor any resources which application server exposes to the administrators.
I will wrap up my experience at eclipsecon. I will also point to my slides and sample source code that shows how to develop EJBs as OSGi service.
This is the second part of a larger setup which explain how to extend GlassFish CLI (Command Line interface , asadmin functionalities) and GlassFish Administration Console (Web Console). This Second part assume that you read the first part and you are ready to get your hands dirty with the coding and deployment.
This relatively long article discusses OSGI, HK2, GlassFish modularity, how to extend GlassFish CLI and GlassFish administration console, Using GlassFish update system and finally setting up and managing an IPS package system.
GlassFish security book authored by Masoud kalali and published by Packt is now available for purchase. The book covers GlassFish, Java EE 6, OpenSSO and OpenDS.
I just updated the Cejug-Classifieds Project to support Maven 2 builds and I added some new features, including a Shell Script able to configure the resources and also to deploy the the application in the Glassfish V3. The script creates all Java EE resources required by the application, like the DataSource, the JavaMail connection and the JMS Queues. In the next sections I will describe how to...
I recently got pointed to that link: http://java.dzone.com/news/ant-18-scanning-leaves-171
I read the news with some pleasure reminding me that I still like Ant based builds very much over Maven in many cases.
Of course there are a lot of well maintained projects on the web that work very well with Maven. You never know how many enthusiasts-hours have been spent to make that happen. However, in...
