OpenSSO Build 2 and Glassfish: Ready to Go
By docteger on Nov 30, 2007
Today I installed Glassfish, Sun's open source application server, and OpenSSO Build 2, Sun's open source access manager server. I used a machine running Solaris 10. Glassfish uses either JDK 1.5 or 1.6 so I added
/usr/jdk/instances/jdk1.5.0/binto the path property in my
.profilefile. Additionally, I set my JAVA_HOME to
/usr/jdk/instances/jdk1.5.0. Seven months back, I installed Glassfish and it was pretty easy although there were some caveats. Today, there were no caveats. Deploying the OpenSSO WAR, as has been the case, was a cool drink of water.
- Using a browser, download
- Using the command line, extract the file using:
java -Xmx256m -jar glassfish-installer-v2-b58g.jarThis created a
glassfishdirectory with everything inside. I liked this. So many times I have extracted a JAR to find files flying all over the place.
- Change into the
- Run the following commands:
chmod -R +x lib/ant/bin
lib/ant/bin/ant -f setup.xml
- After a successful build, change to the root directory and start the default domain:
glassfish/bin/asadmin start-domain domain1
- Using a browser, verify the server is running by accessing
http://machine.domain:8080. You should get a Server Running page.
- Login to Glassfish as admin (PW: adminadmin) by accessing the console at
- Back on the command line, make an
openssodirectory and change into it.
- Using a browser, download Build 2. (This latest stable build will be at this location next week.)
- Back on the command line, unzip the zip.
- In the Glassfish console, click Web Applications on the left side.
- On the right side, click Deploy..., browse for
opensso.war, and click OK. The WAR will be deployed.
- When finished, click Launch.The following screen is displayed.
- I chose Simple which, in turn, displayed this screen:
- Enter the default
admin123and press Configure. The configuration screen is displayed. I clicked View Process Log and watched:
- I was too excited to wait five seconds so I clicked to get the login page at
http://machine.domain:8080, typed in my credentials and was ready to go...as Republica was, back in the day. This is the overseas version, not the US remix with ridiculous overdubbed guitars that sounds like Paris Hilton's wonky left eye looks.
