Dear *,

Recently, I tried the JBPM 5.2.0 – JBoss Business Process Management – web management console and I had an application crash when I selected in the left menu the item “Process overview”.

Fortunately there is a solution to that problem which is to add the following line in the part of the build.xml file included in jbpm-installer_5.2.0 directory :

<!– Install reporting AS7 –>
<target name=”install.reporting.into.jboss7″ depends=”check.birt.as7″ if=”birt.download” >
<mkdir dir=”${install.home}/birt”/>
<unzip src=”${install.home}/lib/birt-runtime-${birt.version.as7}.zip”
dest=”${install.home}/birt”/>
<copy todir=”${install.home}/target/jbpm-gwt-console-server-war/WEB-INF/lib”>
<fileset dir=”${install.home}/birt/birt-runtime-${birt.version.as7}/ReportEngine/lib”>
<include name=”*/.jar”/>
<exclude name=”**/org.apache.commons.codec_1.3.0.v201101211617.jar”/>
</fileset>
</copy>

Dear all,

Yesterday and in addition of the allocated JBoss.org devroom,  I had the confirmation JBoss.org has get a booth @ FOSDEM’12.

So, I can confirm we are going to do several AS7 application deployment demonstrations over the cloud without having to worry about downloading and managing the stack, writing scripts or installing agents in using Openshift.

Dear all,

Well, recently I tried to make my application work on JBoss.org AS7.

Just to check if I should have to do some code modifications in my application when JBoss.com EAP 6 will be released.

FYI, you can download freely JBoss.org AS7 at the following URL –  http://www.jboss.org/jbossas – however as it is a community project you will not have any support with SLA.

In case of you would need one(s) then I would suggest you to subscribe to  JBoss EAP Solutions –   http://www.jboss.com/

So,  one of my main targets was to make AS7 work with Postgresql as its underlying database.

1] I wanted to use an updated Postgresql JDBC then I had to download it from the JDBC Postgresql website –  http://jdbc.postgresql.org/download.html

I used postgresql-9.1-901.jdbc4.jar

2]  I had to create dedicated directories and files inside the JBoss.org AS7 directory.

jboss-as-7.0.2.Final/modules/org/postgres/main

Then, to upload the postgresql-9.1-901.jdbc4.jar in the following path :   jboss-as-7.0.2.Final/modules/org/postgres/main

And then to create specific xml file named : module.xml  with the following content :

<module xmlns="urn:jboss:module:1.0" name="org.postgres">
  <resources>
    <resource-root path="postgresql-9.1-901.jdbc4.jar"/>
  </resources>
   <dependencies>
     <module name="javax.api"/>
     <module name="javax.transaction.api"/>
   </dependencies>
</module>
So in the  jboss-as-7.0.2.Final/modules/org/postgres/main path you should retrieved the following files :

> postgresql-9.1-901.jdbc4.jar – Postgresql JDBC4 driver.

> postgresql-9.1-901.jdbc4.jar.index – Index file generated by JBoss. That file should automatically created by the JBoss instance as soon as the Postgresql JDBC Driver will be discover by the instance.

> module.xml – Module Description

4] Then, I  had to add a Posgresql node in the following section of the jboss-as-7.0.2.Final/standalone/configuration/standalone.xml file.

<subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:datasources:1.0">

<datasources>

                  <datasource jndi-name="java:jboss/datasources/ExampleDS" pool-name="H2DS" enabled="true" jta="true" use-java-context="true" use-ccm="true">

                     <connection-url>
                                jdbc:h2:mem:test;DB_CLOSE_DELAY=-1
                     </connection-url>
                     <driver>
                     h2
                     </driver>
                     <pool>
                                <prefill>

                                </prefill>

                                          false
                                </use-strict-min>
                                <flush-strategy>
                                          FailingConnectionOnly
                                </flush-strategy>

                                <user-name>
                                          sa

                                          sa

                  </datasource>
                  <datasource jndi-name="java:jboss/datasources/PostgresqlDS" pool-name="java:jboss/datasources/PostgresqlDS_Pool" enabled="true" jta="true" use-java-context="true" use-ccm="true">
                     <connection-url>
                                jdbc:postgresql://localhost:5432/mydb
                     </connection-url>
                     <driver>
                                postgresql
                     </driver>
                     <security>
                                <user-name>
                                          myuser
                                </user-name>
                                <password>
                                          mypassword
                                </password>
                     </security>
                  </datasource>
                <drivers>
                    <driver name="postgresql" module="org.postgres">
                        <xa-datasource-class>
                            org.postgresql.xa.PGXADataSource
                        </xa-datasource-class>
                    </driver>
                    <driver name="h2" module="com.h2database.h2">
                        <xa-datasource-class>
                            org.h2.jdbcx.JdbcDataSource
                        </xa-datasource-class>
                    </driver>
                </drivers>
</datasources>
</subsystem>
Rem: Do not forget to change the Postgresql Database user and password to yours.

5] You can check in the JBoss Administration Console your JDBC connection is rcognized – http://localhost:9990/console/App.html#server/datasources

You should see a green light if everything is OK.

6] Finally, do not forget to change the persistence -persistence.xml – file of your application to check your application works with the new Posgresql datasource.
