SSL install of GlassFish Webspace server 10.0

GlassFish Webspace server 10.0 based on Liferay Portal is Sun's next generation portal. The latest Commercial Release can be downloaded from the following site

SSL install of Webspace server involves two steps :

1. Enabling the SSL on the Glassfish server instance

2. Installing the Webspace server

Enabling the SSL on the Glassfish server instance

  1. Download the RR release of Glassfish from the following location . Install and start the domain
  2. change to directory domains/domain1/config under the Glassfish install directory (cd to <gf_install_dir>/domains/domain1/config
  3. Delete the existing alias s1as from the keystore. Execute : keytool -delete -alias s1as -keystore keystore.jks (keytool will be present under jdk1.6.0_10/bin/ directory. Keystore password by default will be "changeit")
  4. Generate the key request. Execute : keytool -genkey -alias s1as -keyalg RSA -keysize 512 -dname "CN=<hostname-fqdn>,Ou=People,O=Sun,L=Bangalore,S=Karnataka,C=IN" -keystore keystore.jks
    Enter keystore password:  changeit
    Enter key password for <s1as>
            (RETURN if same as keystore password):
  5. Generate certificate signing request. Execute : keytool -certreq -alias s1as -sigalg "MD5withRSA" -file certreq.pem -keypass changeit -keystore keystore.jks -storepass changeit 
  6. cat certreq.pem
  7. Get this certificate signed from the CA. We internally use  openssl install
  8. Now import the rootca of this CA. This can be obtained on Execute : keytool -import -alias rootca -trustcacerts -file rootca.pem -keystore keystore.jks -storepass changeit  (rootca.pem file contains the rootca obtained from
  9. Import the signed certificate from the CA. Execute : keytool -import  -alias s1as -file servercert.pem -keypass changeit -keystore keystore.jks -storepass changeit
  10. Restart the glassfish domain.
  11. Access https://<hostname:8181> and view the certificate. It should show issued by : Veera Natarajan if you have used raasi as the signing CA
  12. Install the Glassfish Webspace 10.0. See the instructions under the section "To Install Webspace Server Software Into an Existing Sun GlassFish Configuration" from the "getting started guide" at the following location

Setting up the development environment on liferay latest trunk

Goals :

1. To setup the dev environment of the liferay code on Netbeans 6.1 and Tomcat in debug mode

This is to understand the liferay code for the project websynergy and the flow of the code. 


 Pre-requisites :

1. Install Netbeans 6.1 , ant 1.7, Tomcat 6.x, and svn



Steps : 

1. checkout the latest Liferay trunk with the help of the following command "svn co liferaytrunk"

2. cd to liferaytrunk

3. run "ant"

4. After this, cd to liferaytrunk copy "" to "". Note : siddesh is the login name for my windows xp machine. So it will vary for you depending on your login name

5. Remove everything from "" and add the following. (Note : These properties might change for you depending on where you have installed the apache-tomcat-6.0.16



6. If one starts the tomcat using startup.bat(in windows) or in Solaris, it gives the following exception

Exception in thread "http-8080-Processor25" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space
Exception in thread "DefaultQuartzScheduler_QuartzSchedulerThread" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space
Exception in thread "http-8080-Processor24" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space
Exception in thread "QuartzScheduler_QuartzSchedulerThread" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space
Exception in thread "QuartzScheduler_QuartzScheduler-NON_CLUSTERED_MisfireHandler" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space

7. To solve this, add the following line in catalina.bat(on windows) or solaris) :

JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS "-Xmx1024m" "-Xms1024m" "-XX:MaxPermSize=512m""

8. Setting Tomcat to listen in debug mode : (Example of startup.bat is shown)

    cd to apache-tomcat-6.0.16\\bin directory

    Add the following lines in startup.bat script (set JPDA_ADDRESS=8000
set JPDA_TRANSPORT=dt_socket)

Add the following line just before :end (call "%EXECUTABLE%" jpda start %CMD_LINE_ARGS%)

9. Start the netbeans 6.1 and import the liferaytrunk project into the netbeans

10. click on run -> attach debugger

Debugger : JPDA Debugger

Connector : Socket Attach

Host : give localhost or the hostname

Port : 8000

11. Access the liferay http://localhost:8080 This will invoke the debugger in the netbeans 6.1 . One can add break points and checkout the flow of the code.

Configure MYSQL for project websynergy on GlassFish V3 in 60 seconds

Courtesy : Raju uppalapati from the portal team.

Goal : Making websynergy to work with mysql instead of the default hsql database

Pre-requisite :

1. Install WebSynergy

2. Install mysql running on port 3306. Username : root and password :<password>. Create a database "lportal" in it. From the sql command line client, use the command "create database lportal; "



  Accessing websynergy portal :

1. cd to glassfish-synergy/glassfish/bin and run asadmin start-domain

2. Access http://localhost:8585 and login with username:  and password: paul to check whether websynergy is up and running.



 Installing the admin console for the GlassFish V3 :

1. Access http://localhost:8585/admin , Download and install the adminconsole. Login as anonymous. Please go through this blog for more information on installing admin console for Glassfish V3



 Changing the existing jdbc connection pool so that it points to mysql :

1. Follow the following screencast to change the existing jdbc hsql connection pool to point to mysql

2. Restart the domain using "asadmin stop-domain" and "asadmin start-domain" commands

2. Login to websynergy http://localhost:8585. Now it uses mysql to store the user data.

GlassFish Version 3 Community Efforts




HSQL in project websynergy

Goal : To understand the usage of HSQL by project Websynergy

1. Download Websynergy and install it.

2. cd to the glassfish-synergy/glassfish/bin directory and run asadmin start-domain

3. Once the server is started, you will find a lportal.log in glassfish-synergy/glassfish/bin directory

4. This log file contains all the sql statements that are run on the hsql db

5. Now access the websynergy page http://localhost:8585 and login as and password : paul

6. Note the change in the lportal.log. So once paul/paul authenticates, the hsql is updated with paul's information and so is the file lportal.log

Creating a custom widget in project websynergy

Courtesy : Thanks to Neel from the Portal team to give me a heads up on this.

Goal : To create a custom widget in the Project websynergy codebase and deploy it in the websynergy portal. Project Websynergy is Sun's next generation portal using Liferay Portal Server, GlassFish v3, and MySQL . I am re-using a JSR 286 portlet which my colleague Sriram has written and can be found here :

Creating a EmployeeInfo Portlet and a Health Portlet which displays the BMI of the person entered in EmployeeInfo Portlet.

Steps to create the widget in websynergy :

 Steps to checkout the websynergy code base :

1. Once the code base is checked out, cd to synergy/widgets directory

2. run ant create . Enter the widget name as "EmployeeInfo" , Enter the widget directory as "EmployeeInfo"

3. The widget directory will have the "EmployeeInfo" directory created which will have src, web and build.xml

4. copy the and under synergy\\widgets\\EmployeeInfo\\src\\java\\com\\sun\\portlet

5. change the package name in and for ex : to "package com.sun.portlet"

6. The EmployeeInfo directory will have "web" directory -> EmployeeInfo-docroot, META-INF and WEB-INF

7. copy the jsp files to WEB-INF/jsp directory

8. add the following lines in the individual jsp files

<%@ taglib uri="" prefix="liferay-portlet" %>
<%@ taglib uri="" prefix="liferay-theme" %>
<%@ taglib uri="" prefix="liferay-ui" %>

9. The purpose of liferay-display.xml and liferay-portlet.xml

a. liferay-portlet.xml is like a wrapper on the portlet.xml. Liferay has added certain extra functionalities and they have used their own dtd (liferay-portlet-app_5_0_0.dtd)

b. The liferay-display.xml has the following items :

<category name="category.sample">
 <portlet id="EmployeeInfo"/>

The category.sample means that when we deploy this portlet and then log in as paul/paul or any other user, then click on "Add application" link, the EmployeeInfo portlet will be displayed under "sample"

10. Add the portlet name in the build.xml in the widgets directory

11. The war file will be created under the directory synergy\\widgets\\EmployeeInfo\\build\\war

12. copy this war file and just paste it under the directory C:\\Documents and Settings\\<username>\\liferay\\deploy

13. Now login to websynergy http://localhost:8585 ( and click on "add applications" . You should find the custom portlets under sample.

Here is how the portlets look on the websynergy :



To checkout the websynergy code base

Project Websynergy is Sun's next generation portal using Liferay Portal Server, GlassFish v3, and MySQL

Steps to checkout the websynergy code base :

1. Download the svn utility from

2. Edit the servers file to add your respective proxy server which is  under the location C:\\Documents and Settings\\<windows user>\\Application Data\\Subversion . A Sample "servers" file is available at the following location. Just replace the tag "<Add your proxy name here>" with your proxy. checkout/servers

3. Note, sometimes the Subversion directory wont be present under C:\\Documents and Settings\\<windows user>\\Application Data until you restart the machine

4. Download and install ant from the location :

5. Download and install JDK 1.6

6. Add a system variable JAVA_HOME = C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jdk1.6.0

7. Add a system variable SVN = C:\\Program Files\\Subversion\\bin\\svn

8. Add the jdk path (C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jdk1.6.0\\bin) to the path variable

9. svn co synergy

10. cd to the synergy directory and run ant

11. Once the ant is successful, cd to the directory synergy\\install\\image\\glassfish\\bin and run asadmin.bat start-domain

12. Wait for 1 or 2 mintues for the jsps to compile and run the websynergy portal by accessing http://localhost:8585  (user : password : paul)

Configuring hadb for Sun Application server 9.1 on Solaris 10 machine

Thanks to Ajit Kamble, I just made small additions into his document :-). Feel free to visit his blog
to find out about other complex topologies we try out for the open source portal from Sun Microsystem

 What is hadb ?

HADB is a horizontally-scalable database. It is designed to support data availability with load balancing, failover, and state recovery capabilities.

How is it used with  Sun Open Portal version ?

HADB is used for session failovers for portal  server instances which are clustered. This is also used for portlet session Failover.

Topology that we follow when we cluster Portal server :

 Gateway(This comes with the SRA components of the portal) :
  LoadBalancer : 
 Access Manager :
 Portalserver instance1 + Admin server :
 Portalserver instance2:

Portalserver instance1 and Portalserver instance2 are clustered with Admin server on 4848 port of machine1 .

In this install hadb is installed on machine1 and machine2 machine.


Steps to Configure hadb for Sun Application server 9.1 on Solaris 10 machine :

Pre-requisites for configuring hadb : 

1. All the machines should be in the same subnet

2. Ensure that name resolution of all servers is correct on each server, either via the hosts file or DNS as required.

3. Ensure that the fully qualified hostname is the first entry after the IP address in the /etc/hosts file. Enter the other machine details also in hosts file. For ex : should be present in hosts file of machine2 and viceversa

cat /etc/hosts file on machine1 :       localhost   machine1 loghost   machine2

Repeat the same thing for hosts file on machine2

4. Shared Memory Configuration

Depending on how much physical memory is on the system, configure the shared memory in the system configuration file: /etc/system

root@as1#prtconf | grep Mem

Memory size: 1024 Megabytes

Use the following formula to calculate the value of the shminfo_shmmax parameter

shminfo_shmmax =( Server's Physical Memory in MB / 256MB ) \* 10000000


2GB == 80000000

1GB == 40000000

512MB == 20000000

Add the following parameters to the /etc/system configuration file:

set shmsys:shminfo_shmmax=0x40000000

set shmsys:shminfo_shmseg=20

set semsys:seminfo_semmni=16

set semsys:seminfo_semmns=128

set semsys:seminfo_semmnu=1000

                                set ip:dohwcksum=0

5.Check that hostname lookup and reverse lookup is functioning correctly, check the contents of the /etc/nsswitch.conf file hosts entry:

root@as1#cat /etc/nsswitch.conf | grep hosts

hosts: files dns 

6. Allow non-console root login by commenting out the CONSOLE=/dev/console entry in the /etc/default/login file:

root@as1#cat /etc/default/login | grep “CONSOLE=”


7. Enable remote root ftp, comment out the root entry in the /etc/ftpd/ftpusers file:

root@as1#cat /etc/ftpd/ftpusers | grep root


8. Permit ssh root login. Set PermitRootLogin to yes in /etc/ssh/sshd_config file, and restart the ssh daemon process:

root@as1#cat /etc/ssh/sshd_config | grep PermitRootLogin

PermitRootLogin yes 

9. root@as1#/etc/init.d/sshd stop

10. root@as1#/etc/init.d/sshd start

11. Generate the ssh plulic and private key pair on each machine, machine1 and machine2 in this case :

root@as1#ssh-keygen -t dsa

 Enter file in which to save the key(//.ssh/id_dsa): <CR>

Enter passphrase(empty for no passphrase): <CR>

Enter same passphrase again: <CR>

12. Copy all the public key values to each server's authorized_keys file. Create the authorized_keys file on each server


root@as1# cd ~/.ssh

root@as1# cp authorized_keys

Run the same on machine2 machine also and copy the public key of machine1(present in the authorized_keys file on machine1) to the authorized_keys file on machine2 and do the same thing viceversa.

13.disableIPv6 interface that is not supported by HADB.

To do this on solaris, please remove the file /etc/hostname6.__0(where __ is eir or hme)

14. Make Date and Time same on all the machines involved in the topology

15. Restart both the machines using init 6

16. Install AS9.1 along with hadb from the installer panel on both the machines machine1 and machine2

17. On both machine1 and machine2 run ma,

cd /opt/SUNWhadb/4/bin


18. We have noticed that this wont install all the hadb packages. Hence on both the machines, go to the directory where you have unzipped the AS9.1 installer ex : <AS9.1 unzip location>/installer-ifr/package/

19. run  pkgadd -d . SUNWhadbe SUNWhadbi SUNWhadbv

20.machine1 will have DAS and first portal instance and machine2 machine has second portal instance.

21. On machine1 : create cluster

./asadmin create-cluster --user admin pscluster

22. Create node agent on machine1

./asadmin create-node-agent --host --port 4848 --user admin machine1node

23. Create node agent on machine2(Note, the --host should point to machine1 since machine1 is the Admin server)

./asadmin create-node-agent --host machine1 --port 4848 --user admin machine2node

24.  Create an AS9.1 instance on machine1 :

./asadmin create-instance --user admin --cluster pscluster --nodeagent machine1node --systemproperties HTTP_LISTENER_PORT=38080 machine1instance

25. Create an AS9.1 instance on machine2 :

./asadmin create-instance --user admin --cluster pscluster --host  --nodeagent machine2node --systemproperties HTTP_LISTENER_PORT=38080 machine2instance

26. Start both the node agents :

/opt/SUNWappserver/appserver/bin/asadmin start-node-agent machine1node 

27. run configure-ha-cluster

 ./asadmin configure-ha-cluster --user admin --port 4848 --devicesize 256 --hosts, pscluster

IMP Note : 

If configure-ha-cluster fails for some reason, then while re-installing the next time, do a ps -ef | grep ma and kill all the ma process and the process which runs on port 15200

restart the machines again and try configure-ha-cluster again. 

If configure-ha-cluster is successful, one can start installing the Portal server 7.2 to leverage its enhanced cluster capability as given in the following blog by Prakash Radhakrishnan

    12. To checkOut Tasks following code should be written in the main :


                public class TestClient {
                public TestClient() {
                      public static void main(String[] args) {
                        TestClient client = new TestClient();
                        List taskIdList = new ArrayList();
                        taskIdList.add(0,"-24fb26e7:1157fe0cdcb:-7ec6") ;
                        taskIdList.add(1,"-24fb26e7:1157fe0cdcb:-7eca") ;

Creating a portlet war file from porltet source present on Sun Portlet Repository

Thanks to Deepak Gothe for explaining me about maven.

 The SUN Portlet Repository can be accessed from the following location :

Following are the steps required to build a portlet war file from the portlet source present in the sun portlet repository :

  1. Here I will take the example of rssportlet. Download the rss portlet src from the following location
  2. Download maven-2.0.5 from the following location:
  3. gzip -d maven-2.0.5-bin.tar.gz
  4. tar -xvf maven-2.0.5-bin.tar
  5. Add the below proxy settings in the following file<maven_install_dir>/conf/settings.xml           

      <host>ENTER YOUR PROXY</host>
      <host>ENTER YOUR PROXY</host>

    6. run export JAVA_HOME=/usr/jdk/latest

    7. unzip

    8. cd to the directory rssportlet

    9. run  <maven_install_dir>/bin/mvn package. If this gives the following error :


[INFO] [war:war]
[INFO] Exploding webapp...
[INFO] Assembling webapp rssportlet in /space/rssportlet/dist/rssportlet
[INFO] Copy webapp webResources to /space/rssportlet/dist/rssportlet

[INFO] Total time: 30 seconds
[INFO] Finished at: Sun Oct 07 19:30:07 IST 2007
[INFO] Final Memory: 7M/121M
A Brief Description on the working of maven :

1. maven reads the <rssportlet_dir>/pom.xml

2. It reads the repository entry in pom.xml  and downloads the depedencies for the rssportlet from the repository( to $HOME/.m2/repository directory . Following is the repository tag :


            <name>Maven Repository Switchboard</name>
            <name> Repository for Maven</name>

3. Then maven reads plugin tag and downloads the plugins required

4. You can see maven-compiler-plugin downloaded to the maven repository, see below :

bash-3.00# ls $HOME/.m2/repository/org/apache/maven/plugins/maven-
maven-clean-plugin/     maven-plugins/          maven-surefire-plugin/
maven-compiler-plugin/  maven-resources-plugin/ maven-war-plugin/

5. Next maven reads the dependencies tag. For ex :


6. You can see rome downloaded to the maven repository, see below :

bash-3.00# ls /.m2/repository/rome/rome/0.9
rome-0.9.jar       rome-0.9.jar.sha1  rome-0.9.pom       rome-0.9.pom.sha1
