====================================================== Apache Geronimo v2.1.5 http://geronimo.apache.org/ ------------------------------------------------------ ______________________ Release Notes ====================== Please read the RELEASE_NOTES-2.1.5.txt for a complete list of new features available in this release. ______________________ Documentation ====================== This README serves as quick introduction to Geronimo. More complete documentation can be found here: - http://cwiki.apache.org/GMOxDOC21/documentation.html ______________________ Installing Geronimo ====================== To install Geronimo, simply unpack the .zip (Windows) or tar.gz (Unix) file containing Geronimo. Note for Windows platforms: The maximum path length for a directory path is 255 characters. Installing Geronimo into a long directory path may cause the installation or server start up to fail. It is recommended that you use a short directory name, such as "c:\g\". ______________________ Starting Geronimo ====================== There are three general techniques for starting Geronimo (assuming the current directory is <geronimo_home>): 1. GShell -- "./bin/gsh geronimo/start-server" 2. Script -- "./bin/geronimo.sh run" 3. Java -- "java -Djava.endorsed.dirs=$JRE_HOME/lib/endorsed:lib/endorsed -Djava.ext.dirs=$JRE_HOME/lib/ext:lib/ext -javaagent:bin/jpa.jar -jar bin/server.jar" Additional information on command environments can be found below. ______________________ Application Deployment ====================== Applications can be deployed to a Geronimo server in several ways: 1. Administrative command scripts -- "./bin/gsh deploy/deploy MyApp.war MyDeploymentPlan.xml" 2. Administrative console -- login to the admin console and click "Deploy New" under Applications 3. Hot deploy -- copy your archive(s) into the "<geronimo-home>/deploy" directory. The hot deploy service will automatically deploy these artifacts. 4. Maven -- applications can be installed as part of a maven build When you deploy an application using an administrative command, you will need to supply an administrator's username/password. If you do not specify the username and password, you will be prompted for them. ______________________ Configuration ====================== Commonly modified configuration parameters, such as port numbers, can be set by editing the file: <geronimo_home>/var/config/config-substitutions.properties Additional configuration attributes can be updated in the file: <geronimo_home>/var/config/config.xml Note: The server must not be running when these files are modified. Once the server has started, you can access the Geronimo Administration Console at http://localhost:8080/console/ . The default user name is "system" and the default password is "manager". ______________________ Security Configuration ====================== The default administration user/password for the Geronimo Administration Console and command line deployment tool is system/manager. You can change these defaults directly from the Geronimo Administration Console by accessing Security -> Users and Groups and change the user name and password from the Console Realm Users portlet. As an alternative, you can make the same changes by editing the <geronimo_home>/var/security/users.properties and <geronimo_home>/var/security/groups.properties files. Access to the var/security directory should be appropriately secured on systems where you install Geronimo. Passwords in users.properties are encrypted by the server. Passwords can be changed using the Geronimo Administration Console. They can also be changed using a text editor. While the server is stopped, simply edit the users.properties file. The password(s) will be encrypted the next time the server is started. To prevent potential security exposures, we strongly recommend you update the default user names and passwords on your system. ______________________ GShell ====================== Geronimo provides a command shell environment for executing commands, called GShell. To start a GShell environment, from the <geronimo_home> directory, execute "./bin/gsh" (unix) or "bin\gsh" (windows). This will start a GShell command environment. From here, you can execute Geronimo administrative commands as well as general GShell commands. Alternatively, you can invoke a GShell command at the same time that you invoke gsh, for example: ./bin/gsh geronimo/stop-server A list of common gsh commands are: help geronimo/start-server geronimo/stop-server deploy/deploy deploy/undeploy deploy/list-modules deploy/install-plugin deploy/assemble Usage information for any command can be obtained by using the --help option. For example: geronimo/start-server --help For more information on GShell and GShell commands, see the Geronimo 2.1 documentation. ______________________ Script ====================== Geronimo provides a number of .sh or .bat scripts that can be used to administer Geronimo servers. To use most of these scripts, you must first set either the JAVA_HOME or JRE_HOME environment variable: export JAVA_HOME=<path-to-JDK> or export JRE_HOME=<path-to-JRE> Unix scripts provided by Geronimo (there are .bat equivalents): geronimo.sh -- used to start and stop servers; either as a foreground or background process. startup.sh -- start a Geronimo server running as a background process shutdown.sh -- stop a running Geronimo server client.sh -- start a Geronimo application client deploy.sh -- deploy, list, and undeploy plugins and applications jaxws-tools.sh -- generate WSDL from Java code or Java code from WSDL For example, "./bin/deploy.sh list-modules" The geronimo.sh and shutdown.sh scripts have multiple sub-commands. Executing the scripts without any arguments will generate usage information. Executing "help <sub-command>" will generate usage information for that particular command. ______________________ Support ====================== Any problems with this release can be reported to the Geronimo user mailing list or Jira issue tracker. Mailing list archive: http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/geronimo-user/ User mailing list: email@example.com User mailing list subscription: firstname.lastname@example.org Jira: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO Information concerning security issues and reporting security concerns: http://geronimo.apache.org/security-reports.html _______________________________________ Notice Regarding Cryptographic Software ======================================= This distribution includes cryptographic software. The country in which you currently reside may have restrictions on the import, possession, use, and/or re-export to another country, of encryption software. BEFORE using any encryption software, please check your country's laws, regulations and policies concerning the import, possession, or use, and re-export of encryption software, to see if this is permitted. See <http://www.wassenaar.org/> for more information. The U.S. Government Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), has classified this software as Export Commodity Control Number (ECCN) 5D002.C.1, which includes information security software using or performing cryptographic functions with asymmetric algorithms. The form and manner of this Apache Software Foundation distribution makes it eligible for export under the License Exception ENC Technology Software Unrestricted (TSU) exception (see the BIS Export Administration Regulations, Section 740.13) for both object code and source code. The following provides more details on the included cryptographic software: Software related to cryptographic functionality is located in an artifcact referred to as geronimo-util. The source code for this functionality can be reviewed at: http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/geronimo/server/ The URL above is a reference to the Apache Geronimo Server source tree for all development (and released) source trees.
