What is JSONx?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Davanum Srinivas @ 11:57 am

[SOURCE] Please see Slide #37 in http://mmpcgroup.com/doc/datapower-in-web20-world.pdf

What is JSONx?

• IBM Internal Standardization of JSON modeled in XML
– xmlns:json=http://www.ibm.com/xmlns/prod/2009/jsonx
– Spec was developed by DP with input from the Data Web Service Team (DB2)
– Strict model of RFC 4627 – application/json
– Productized by DP and Data Web Service Team
• Developed to be generically schema validateable (json is validated)
– Not an arbitrary representation of JSON data as XML
– Not at attempt to model any XML as JSON
• Developed to be a non-lossy transformation of JSON types/data
• Useful for everything DataPower
– RESTful json bridge to SOAP
– Threat protection for Ajax clients that use eval(json)
• Data Web Service details:

[My Notes]
• Datapower devices live on the edge of your network
• Customers perform bridging/proxying/aggregation of various data formats and protocols
• It’s in this narrow use case that JSONx is aimed at IMHO

Example:
Here’s an exact AJAX DataPower Appliance SOAP scenario:

Here is a screen shot.

Notes



  • You can specify a directory path or a remote URL in the edit box

  • Choose any 3gp file from http://daily3gp.com/ to view videos

  • The 4 buttons are for play, pause, reset and stop

  • When you specify a http or https url, we save the url contents to hard disk first and then play it

  • The icons are from here

Here’s the code

Debug code running on IBM Websphere using Eclipse / Intellij IDEA

Filed under: Uncategorized — Davanum Srinivas @ 1:39 pm

NOTE: Please back up the files before you modify them.

Step #1 : Edit the server.xml (for example $WAS_HOME/profiles/AppSrv01/config/cells/AppSrv01/nodes/AppSrv01/servers/server1/server.xml). Find the processDefinitions element and look for the jvmEntries under it. A typical entry looks like this:

  <processDefinitions xmi:type="processexec:JavaProcessDef" 
		      xmi:id="JavaProcessDef_1183122130078" 
                      workingDirectory="${USER_INSTALL_ROOT}" 
                      executableTargetKind="JAVA_CLASS" 
                      executableTarget="com.ibm.ws.runtime.WsServer">
    <execution xmi:id="ProcessExecution_1183122130078" 
               processPriority="20" 
               runAsUser="" 
               runAsGroup=""/>
    <ioRedirect xmi:id="OutputRedirect_1183122130078" 
		stdoutFilename="${SERVER_LOG_ROOT}/native_stdout.log" 
		stderrFilename="${SERVER_LOG_ROOT}/native_stderr.log"/>
    <monitoringPolicy xmi:id="MonitoringPolicy_1183122130078" 
		maximumStartupAttempts="3" pingInterval="60" 
		pingTimeout="300" autoRestart="true" 
		nodeRestartState="STOPPED"/>
    <jvmEntries xmi:id="JavaVirtualMachine_1183122130078" 
		verboseModeClass="false" 
		verboseModeGarbageCollection="false" 
		verboseModeJNI="false" runHProf="false" 
		hprofArguments="" 
		debugMode="false" 
		debugArgs="-agentlib:jdwp=transport=dt_socket,server=y,suspend=n,address=7777" 
		genericJvmArguments="">
      <systemProperties xmi:id="Property_1" name="com.ibm.security.jgss.debug" value="off" required="false"/>
      <systemProperties xmi:id="Property_2" name="com.ibm.security.krb5.Krb5Debug" value="off" required="false"/>
    </jvmEntries>
  </processDefinitions>

Step #2: Do you see the debugMode in the jvmEntries section? switch it from false to true and save the file.

debugMode="true" 

Step #3: Restart the server as usual using say the command line

root@dims-desktop:/opt/WAS70/profiles/AppSrv01/bin# ./startServer.sh server1
ADMU0116I: Tool information is being logged in file
           /opt/WAS70/profiles/AppSrv01/logs/server1/startServer.log
ADMU0128I: Starting tool with the AppSrv01 profile
ADMU3100I: Reading configuration for server: server1
ADMU3200I: Server launched. Waiting for initialization status.
ADMU3000I: Server server1 open for e-business; process id is 6913

Step #4: Using latest IntelliJ or Eclipse, you can use Remote debugging to attach to the running Websphere server. Please specify the same port (“7777″ in example above) as mentioned in the server.xml. Here are screen shots from Eclipse and Intellij on how to set up the debug configuration.





Step #5: Use the debug configuration created in the previous step, set up break points in your application and attach to the running Websphere process.





That’s it!

[ANNOUNCEMENT] Apache Wink 0.1 Released (JAX-RS Implementation)

Filed under: Uncategorized — Davanum Srinivas @ 5:55 am

The Apache Wink team is proud to announce the availability of Apache Wink 0.1

Apache Wink is a framework for building RESTful Web services.
It is comprised of a Server module and a Client module for developing
and consuming RESTful Web services.

Disclaimer: Apache Wink is an effort undergoing incubation at The
Apache Software Foundation (ASF), sponsored by the Incubator PMC.
Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further
review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision
making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other
successful ASF projects. While incubation status is not necessarily a
reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does
indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.

The Wink distribution is available at
http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi/incubator/wink/0.1-incubating/

The Wink web site is available at
http://incubator.apache.org/wink/

The Wink 0.1 source code repository is available at
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/wink/tags/wink-0.1-incubating/

For questions, please contact the Wink developers mailing list at
wink-dev@incubator.apache.org
To subscribe to the wink-dev@ mailing list, send an email to
wink-dev-subsribe@incubator.apache.org

You can also use Wink users mailing list if you are not interested in
developers information (e.g. JIRA issues, commits etc.)
wink-user@incubator.apache.org
To subscribe to the wink-user@ mailing list, send an email to

Enjoy,
