1 Requirement

For building, configuring and customizing the JPPF Resource Adapter, your will need the latest version of the JPPF source code distribution. It can be found on the JPPF download page. The name of the file is

2 Build structure

The J2EE connector has the following folder structure:

Folder Description
root folder The root folder, contains the build.xml Ant build script
appserver contains common and application server-specific configurations for the JPPF resource adapter and the demo application
build this folder contains all jars, .ear and .rar files resulting from the build
classes contains the compiled code of the JPPF resource adapter
config contains application server-specific resources for the deployment of the resource adapter
docroot contains resources for the build of the demo application on some application servers
src contains the source code for the resource adapter and demo application.

3 Building the JPPF resource adapter

To build the resource adapter:

  • Open a command prompt
  • Go to the JPPF-x.y-j2ee-connector folder
  • Enter “ant build
  • The resulting .rar and .ear files are generated in the “build” subfolder.

4 Configuring the resource adapter and demo application

The configuration files and deployment descriptors are all contained in the appserver folder. The detailed content of this folder is as follows:

Folder Description
appserver root folder, contains:
  • the resource adapter's deployment descriptor ra.xml. It is in this file that you set the configuration parameters for the connection to the JPPF drivers, by setting the values of the configuration properties as follows:
 <!-- JPPF Client Configuration -->
   Defines how the JPPF configuration is to be located.
   This property is defined in the format "type|path",
   where "type" can be one of:
   - "classpath": "path" is a path to a properties file in one
     of the jars of the .rar file
     example: "classpath|resources/config/"
   - "url": "path" is a url that points to a properties file
     example: "url|file:///home/me/jppf/"
     (it could be a http:// or ftp:// url as well)
   - "file": "path" is considered a path on the file system
     example: "file|/home/me/jppf/config/"
   When no value or an invalid value is specified,
   "classpath|" is used
  • the demo application's deployment descriptor application.xml
appserver/common contains files common to all application servers, for the demo enterprise application
appserver/<server_name> root of <server_name>-specific configuration and deployment files. Contains a file where you can configure which logging framework will be used (i.e. Log4j, JDK logger, etc...)
appserver/<server_name>/application contains <server_name>-specific deployment descriptor for the demo application, for example: weblogic-application.xml.
appserver/<server_name>/docroot contains a <server_name>-specific JSP for the demo application. The specificity is the JNDI name used to look up the JPPF connection factory. It relates to the corresponding resource-ref defined in the web.xml descriptor.
appserver/<server_name>/ra contains a <server_name>-specific deployment descriptor for the resource adapter. It generally contains the definition of the corresponding JCA connection factory. Not all application servers require one. Example: weblogic-ra.xml.
appserver/<server_name>/WEB-INF contains the <server_name>-specific deployment descriptors for the demo web application. The specificity is mostly in the resource-ref definition of the JNDI name for the JPPF connection factory. For example: web.xml and jboss-web.xml.
