Adding bundle to dm server to extend tomcat [message #633525] Mon, 18 October 2010 10:30 Go to next message

Hello,

We have a custom tomcat realm which we need to install to tomcat.

This realm extends the standard JNDI relam, utilitising a custom SSL Socket factory so that we can choose which keystore to use, as the standard JNDI realm cannot control which keys in a keystore are picked when connecting to LDAP over SSL.

What is the correct approach to take to extend tomcat under Virgo/DM Server?

We are thinking:
1) package classes in an OSGi bundle
2) add bundle to repository/ext
3) add bundle to com.springsource.server.web-2.0.2.RELEASE.plan (or equivalent under virgo)

Is this a reasonable approach?

Regards,
Dan.

That approach sounds reasonable in general.

Please note that Virgo has solved a problem which was present in dm Server 2.0.x which prevented clustering from working, so you would be well-advised to move to Virgo.

The fix was to make the ha and tribes bundles fragments of the main catalina bundle.

It may also be necessary to make your bundle a fragment of the main catalina bundle, in which case it would not be necessary to include the bundle in the plan as it would be installed automatically from the repository when the main catalina bundle is installed.

Thanks Glyn,

Will give the fragment bundle approach a try. Not having to edit the plan will simplify our sripts to generate a clean build of the server.

I shall note for posterity that the bundle fragment approached worked.
