CoCoME Cloud JEE Service-Adapter

This repository contains the service-adapter implementing the evolution scenario adding a service-adapter.


  • Running Glassfish 4.x
  • A database supported by JPA (e.g., PostgreSQL)


Before compilation you must copy the settings.xml.template located in the project root directory file to settings.xml and adjust the properties defined in the XML file.

The properties correspond with values of your running Glassfish instance. In a default Glassfish installation the domain is called domain1 if you did not provide a different name. However, we recommend to create your own domain, e.g., cocome or service-adapter.

To build the service-adapter with Maven type in the project root directory:

mvn -s settings.xml compile

If the compilation is successful you can proceed and type

mvn -s settings.xml package

to produce deployable packages. This last step can be omitted when you choose to directly deploy your build with Maven. However, it is helpful to make sure packaging works before trying to deploy. Therefore, we recommend to test packaging before deploying.


Before you can deploy the service-adapter make sure you have added a data (re)source called jdbc/CoCoMEDB. This can be done on command line or via the Glassfish UI. You need:

  • A JDBC connection pool (please consult the Glassfish documentation)
  • A JDBC resource named jdbc/CoCoMEDB using the connection pool you defined

You can directly deploy them via the Cargo Maven plug-in with

mvn -s settings.xml install

Alternatively, you can deploy the application via asadmin or the Glassfish administration interface.


Undeployment can be performed via the Glassfish administration interface the asadmin command line tool or with

mvn -s settings.xml post-clean


Before you start to contribute to the service-adapter make sure you adhere the coding style of the service-adapter and setup your IDE accordingly. For Eclipse, we provide configuration files in the root directory.

  • eclipse-cleanup.xml
  • eclipse-formatter.xml
  • eclipse.importorder You can use them globally in preferences or configure them in each project.

Furthermore, we provide a checkstyle.xml configuration, which can be used with Maven and in your IDE.

mvn -s settings.xml checkstyle:check

This will produce also errors in existing code. We are aware of that and will fix in over time.

For your Eclipse setup you may use the Kieker Eclipse setup page as reference (


In case the deployment fails, this might be due to a wide range of problems. You may consult the server logs and your settings file.

  • Make sure admin user name and password are correct and that the ports are set properly. Depending on your installation they might differ from 4848 (admin) and 8080 (web).
  • In case you deployed before, redeployment will fail until you undeploy first. This can be done with mvn -s settings.xml post-clean install which undeploys and then tries to deploy the application again
  • If undeployment does not work. Try undeploying with the Glassfish administration interface or asadmin. In seldom cases Glassfish does not delete all necessary files for undeployment. You may repair this as follows:
    • stop your Glassfish server
    • go to ${GLASSFISH_HOME}/glassfish/domains/${YOUR_DOMAIN} directory
    • delete all directories which correspond with your deployment
    • You must also check the __internal directory
    • Find the domain.xml or config.xml and remove references to the deployment.
