The new opensolaris.org user management webapp moves into the light

As outlined here I've been working away on providing the infrastructure needed to break up the current monolithic J2EE application used to host opensolaris.org. I've just released the source code of the existing portal, a large J2EE application. As detailed in the restructuring document, the intention is to split the functionality of the current webapp into smaller, more manageable parts. As I was releasing the portal code, I thought it was a good time to move my development repository outside as well. Accordingly, you can browse the source at:

http://src.opensolaris.org/source/xref/website/auth/trunk/

and the source can be accessed via anonymous SVN at:

svn+ssh://anon@opensolaris.org/svn/website/auth

It is *very* rudimentary and is *far* from being finished. What I've put on opensolaris.org is just a snapshot of my development workspace as of today. However the database schema is available, along with a small set of dummy data which is used to populate the Derby database currently used by the prototype webapp.If you have any questions, I encourage you to subscribe to the website-discuss mailing list and ask them there.

Hi Alan. Do you have this running on GlassFish? Any special "gotchas"? THanks! - eduard/o

Re: The new opensolaris.org user management webapp moves into the light

Hi Eduardo, I haven't tried it on Glassfish as Tomcat is our current deployment platform, but it should just run. The WAR file is completely self-contained and doesn't need the host container to be configured, e.g. no JNDI config or DB driver installation is needed. If you try it out on Glassfish, I'd be interested to hear how you get on :-)
