Part 2: Glassfish V3 Pet Catalog sample DEMO in VM Template - OS Instance

OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype was designed as PURE CLI enviroment providing main building stone for creation of Virtual Appliances or VM Templates

In this example I will demonstrate creation of Evaluation type Virtual Appliance / VM Template which will leveradge OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS prototype and just in Dec/09 released Glassfish v3, Java EE 6 and Netbeans 6.8 with simple Java EE 6 demo. This entry is part of Virtual Appliances & OVF workshop.

New Glassfish V3 introduce an unique network repository based modular structure, so we can more easily create really simple initial DEMO setup which user can extend by installation more samples right from Glassfish V3 repository or from Netbeans GUI.

Step 1: Create OS Instance
   General Information - JeOS Prototype OpenSolaris project
   Step 1a: Create an OpenSolaris 20906 JeOS Prototype instance
   Step 1b: Start JeOS VM instance and check readiness as user root
   Step 1c: Create a non-root but fully privileged user

Try OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype in MAC Parallels Desktop 3 ?

I release a OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype released as Parallels VM image, using a Parallels Desktop for Windows 4:

OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype released as Parallels VM image

Can anybody try it on Parallels Desktop 3 for MAC.

PS: You will probaly not able to import VM directly, because old versions have only Solaris/Other option, not Solaris/OpenSolaris, so you can try to recreate VM and use just disks in new XML formats.

Please send result to jeos-discuss at opensolaris dot org[Read More]

Security related Enhancements in OpenSolaris JeOS Prototype

OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype is PURE CLI enviroment, so its small true command line only enviroment, as such is ideal install BASE for evaluating security related install & config OS enhancements .

OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype is Hardened Installation

The process by which the JeOS image is built now follows certain recommendations from the Center for Internet Security (CIS). The JeOS image build process uses the portion of theImmutable Service Containers (ISC) project's tools applicable to a global zone to implement some of the recommendations outlined in the document OpenSolaris Security Hardening.

See also Glenn Brunette's Security Weblog

This ISC framework features was applied during JeOS post-configuration:

  • Security hardening of the operating system (based upon the OpenSolaris Security Hardening project)
  • Non-executable stack functionality enabled (on systems supporting this functionality)
  • Encrypted swap enabled
  • Encrypted scratch space - default size is 100 Mbytes (customize as needed)
  • Kernel-level auditing enabled
  • Default policy audits login/logouts, administrative events, and all commands executed on the system
  • Audit syslog plugin configured (/var/log/auditlog)

NAS storage server in OpenSolaris JeOS Prototype

OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype is PURE CLI enviroment, so its small true command line only enviroment, as such is ideal install BASE for experimenting with system features like ZFS and SERVER network storage protocols like (CIFS, NFS,iSCSI).

In this example I will demonstrate a creation of simple STORAGE multi-protocol NAS using ZFS and network storage protocols (CIFS, NFS, iSCSI) integration.

I will also demonstrate some ZFS native features together with storage oriented ones.

JeOS like Zones in OpenSolaris JeOS Prototype

OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype is PURE CLI enviroment, so its small true command line only enviroment, as such is ideal install BASE for experimenting with system features like are Container based Virtualizations (Zones) or new Virtualized network stack (CROSSBOW) .

In this example I will demonstrate creating JeOS zones tepmlate for Zones clonning based on PKG OpenSolaris 200906 repository OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype.

In OpenSolaris 200906 a sample zone can be created on ZFS system and after it can be cloned after to working zones, this way we can play can always clean zone, for example as SW porting enviroment, see more in Personal SourceJuicer in OpenSolaris JeOS Prototype

To play in JeOS with iPKG ZFS based zones look into Al Blog Automating Zone creation in OpenSolaris 2009.06

To play in JeOS with network configurations with CROSSBOW look into Jerome Blog Crossbow & NAT to share DHCP WiFi interface between zones

Personal SourceJuicer in OpenSolaris JeOS Prototype

OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype is PURE CLI enviroment, so its small true command line only enviroment, as such is ideal install BASE for compact porting environment.

OpenSolaris provide a Source Juicer project for porting mainly User Land programs, but many programs are still ported by ROBOPORTER with for example not ideal build dependencies.

This example allow you to use OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype PURE CLI enviroment to check real dependency need of ported applications in your private Source Juicer with pkgbuild like environment.

pkgbuild is tool which help you to port SW to OpenSolaris using a RPM spec like build receipts, this personal Source Juicer enviroment can help to learn such build process.

Part 3: Minimal X env for iPKG GUI in OpenSolaris JeOS Prototype

OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype is PURE CLI enviroment, so its true command line only, even no X libraries and of course no GUI libs needed for iPKG GUI components Package Manager or Update Manager.

Some OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype evaluators try to install needed X and Libs with command line pkg, but it resulted in massive mote them 200MB download which was hard to finish even, when download was repetitively restarted.

Sometimes virtual networking is not so stable then real HW ones, plus if you add there for example issues with low signal WiFi line in host, so I try to divide in this example needed PKG installations to downloads in chunks with about max 30MB.

I will try to setup in this sample a Minimal X/Libs enviroment for remote execution of iPKG GUI components Package Manager or Update Manager, remote execution focused enviroment will need low resources in VM, no attempt for full X local enviroment.
