    JBoss Portal embedded jackrabbit content repository.

    karim lahweg Newbie

      Hi,
      I am looking for a way to remotely access the JBoss Portal embedded jackrabbit repository.
      I am going the EJB3 programming model way and what I am able to do now is to get an instance of the JCRCMS in my stateless session bean

      @Resource(mappedName = "java:/portal/CMS")
      private JCRCMS jcrCms;


      And so I can do a lot of cool stuff.

      As a saw how Day CRX, JCR-Explorer, JCR Viewer, JCR Controller, can explore jackrabbit repositories, I am wondering if it is possible to do so with the JBoss portal one.

      I tried with the apache jcr-explorer web app running on tomcat but i had a problem with jndi name.
      I also tried with the JCR BROWSER eclipse plugin (rmi access). No way!

      So I took a look at
      jboss-portal-2.7.2\server\default\deploy\jboss-portal.sar\portal-cms.sar\META-INF\jboss-service.xml
      and realized that the unlike the JCRCMS, the jackrabbit JCR itself isn't bound to JNDI name nor has a JRMP server association.

      Is it why i can't access the JCR with the tools i mentionned?

      As for the JCRCMS, a remote proxy can be provided by adding


      <!-- Proxy factory for CMS -->

      <!-- Use the standard JRMPInvoker from conf/jboss-service.xxml -->
      <depends optional-attribute-name="InvokerName">jboss:service=invoker,type=jrmp
      <!-- The target MBean -->
      <depends optional-attribute-name="TargetName">portal:service=CMS
      <!-- Where to bind the proxy factory -->
      RemoteCMS
      <!-- Invoke target method instead of invoke(Invocation mi) -->
      true
      <!-- Comma-separated list of exported interfaces -->
      org.jboss.portal.cms.CMS
      <!-- client-side interceptors -->


      org.jboss.proxy.ClientMethodInterceptor
      org.jboss.proxy.SecurityInterceptor
      org.jboss.jmx.connector.invoker.client.InvokerAdaptorClientInterceptor
      org.jboss.invocation.InvokerInterceptor




      (according to sohil.shah@jboss.com tested and works fine)

      Can we get the JBoss Portal embedded Jackrabbit JCR to the same level of exposure?
