    Service provider configuration under Tomcat for picketlink?

    Warren Hennemuth Newbie

      I have set up my IDP under JBoss.

      It is working fine.

      I now want to set up my SP under tomcat running separately.

      I haven't been able to find any examples on how to do this, so I started to wing it.

      I have been trying to adapt the following two links for tomcat:

      The steps I have taken are as follows:

      1) Placed picketlink.xml in my WEB-INF dir with the following content:

      <PicketLink xmlns="urn:picketlink:identity-federation:config:2.1">

        <PicketLinkSP xmlns="urn:picketlink:identity-federation:config:2.1"

        ServerEnvironment="tomcat" BindingType="POST">

        <IdentityURL>${idp.url::http://localhost:8080/idp/}</IdentityURL>

        <ServiceURL>${portal2.url::http://localhost:8181/portal2/}</ServiceURL>

        </PicketLinkSP>

        <Handlers xmlns="urn:picketlink:identity-federation:handler:config:2.1">

        <Handler

        class="org.picketlink.identity.federation.web.handlers.saml2.SAML2LogOutHandler" />

        <Handler

        class="org.picketlink.identity.federation.web.handlers.saml2.SAML2AuthenticationHandler" />

        <Handler

        class="org.picketlink.identity.federation.web.handlers.saml2.RolesGenerationHandler" />

        </Handlers>

      </PicketLink>

      2) Put a security constraint in my web.xml file as follows:

        <security-constraint>

          <web-resource-collection>

            <web-resource-name>Manager command</web-resource-name>

            <url-pattern>/services/admin/*</url-pattern>

          </web-resource-collection>

          <auth-constraint>

            <role-name>manager</role-name>

            <role-name>Sales</role-name>

            <role-name>Employee</role-name>

          </auth-constraint>

        </security-constraint>

      3) Put all of the picketlink jars and their javax/javaee6 dependencies on the classpath

      4) Placed the appropriate valve in my context.xml file:

      <?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>

      <Context

        displayName="abbdevportal2"

        docBase="C:/whennemuth/workspaces/abb_workspace/ABBWeb2/ABBWeb-TRUNK/target/abbdevportal2"

        reloadable="true"

        path="">

           <Valve className="org.picketlink.identity.federation.bindings.tomcat.sp.ServiceProviderAuthenticator"/>

        <!--

        <Valve className="org.apache.catalina.authenticator.FormAuthenticator" disablingProxyCaching="false"/>

        -->

      </Context>

       

      I'm wasn't sure how to put in the SAML2LoginModule called for because this app is running under tomcat, not jboss, and there is no jboss-web.xml

         <security-domain name="sp" cache-type="default">

        <authentication>

          <login-module code="org.picketlink.identity.federation.bindings.jboss.auth.SAML2LoginModule" flag="required"/>

        </authentication>

      </security-domain>

       

      So, I tried to run the app to see what would happen.

      The result is a "java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.catalina.authenticator.FormAuthenticator" due to the ServiceProviderAuthenticator conflicting with it.

      Anyway, I'm kinda stuck on this and was hoping someone might know how to proceed or where the relevant documentation is.

       

      Thanks

          Hey Warren,

           

          What are the JARs you are using in Tomcat's classpath ?

            Hi Pedro.

            Thanks for replying.

            I run tomcat from an eclipse debug configuration.

            I let maven build to the target directory and I put the resulting lib directory contents on to its classpath with the following additions afterwards:

             

            • cdi-api-1.0.jar
            • javax.inject-1.jar
            • javax.annotation-api-1.2.jar
            • jsr250-api-1.0.jar
            • validation-api-1.1.0.Final.jar

             

            The dependencies in the pom file are;

            I can give you a full listing of the jars on the debug configuration classpath if that is easier to see.

             

            Thanks,

              Thankyou Pedro.
              I will try that out as soon as I can and reply back.

                Hi Pedro.

                Sorry for the long delay.

                I brought https://repository.jboss.org/nexus/service/local/repositories/releases/content/org/picketlink/distribution/picketlink-to…

                into my project.

                From this I see the original ClassNotFoundException is now gone, which lets tomcat startup progress a little further until an incompatibility issue regarding this new jar comes up.

                Apparently version 2.7.0.CR1 is not compatiblie with version 2.7.0-SNAPSHOT, which I am using.

                Specifically:

                line 489 of  org\picketlink\identity\federation\bindings\tomcat\sp\BaseFormAuthenticator.java in picketlink-tomcat7-2.7.0.CR1

                refers to a non-existing method in:2

                org\picketlink\identity\federation\web\util\ConfigurationUtil.java in picketlink-federation-2.7.0-SNAPSHOT.jar:

                 

                Caused by: java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.picketlink.identity.federation.web.util.ConfigurationUtil.getConfiguration(Ljava/io/InputStream;)Lorg/picketlink/config/federation/PicketLinkType;

                  at org.picketlink.identity.federation.bindings.tomcat.sp.ServiceProviderAuthenticator.startInternal(ServiceProviderAuthenticator.java:25)

                  at org.apache.catalina.util.LifecycleBase.start(LifecycleBase.java:150)

                 

                I have looked around at different versions of picketlink-tomcat-common, and they all expect this same method in ConfigurationUtil.

                Any idea how to get around this?

                 

                Thanks,

                Warren
