class-loader

Configures a jar library, WEB-INF/lib-style class loader.

The library-loader will add jar files in its path to the current classpath. Jar files are recognized wihen they have a filename extension of .jar or .zip.

See . class-loader

Configures a jar library, WEB-INF/lib-style class loader similar to , but will also find .jar and .zip files in subdirectories.

See . class-loader

Configures a custom make-style loader.

class-loader

Use of servlet-hack is discouraged. Using servlet-hack violates the JDK's classloader delegation model and can produce surprising ClassCastExceptions.

servlet-hack reverses the normal class loader order. Instead of parent classloaders having priority, child classloaders have priority.

class-loader

Configures a simple classes-style class loader.

.class files in the specified directory will be loaded without any special compilation steps (in contrast with compiling-loader.)

Configures a cluster of Resin servers for load balancing and sharing state information.

Each cluster is a collection of Resin servers. The servers will share session information if the sessions are configured for <cluster-store>.

Each environment context is associated with a single cluster. If no cluster is defined for the context, it defaults to the parent cluster.

Normally, the cluster will be configured in the <server> context, although a cluster could be defined in a web-app for finer load-balancing. Only clusters defined in the <server> context are used for listening to ports. Other clusters are only for outgoing load balancing.

<resin xmlns="http://caucho.com/ns/resin"> <server> <cluster> <srun id='a' port='6810'/> <srun id='b' port='6811'/> </cluster> ... resin, server, host-default, host, web-app-default, web-app

Defines a cluster for later use by cluster-ref.

resin, server, host-default, host, web-app-default, web-app

Configures a JCA resource adapter and its associated connection factories.

The resource adapter/connector will have been added as a rar file (see resource-deploy. The <connector> configures that rar resource.

<connector connector-name="Test Resource"> <connection-factory jndi-name="eis/test"> <init> <value>b</value> </init> </connection-factory> </connector>
r_connector = element connector { (attribute connector-name { string } | element connector-name { string }) & r_resource-adapter? & r_connection-factory* } r_connection-factory = element connection-factory { (attribute jndi-name { string } | element jndi-name { string }), (attribute type { string } | element type { string })?, element init { any }? } r_resource-adapter = element resource-adapter { (attribute jndi-name { string } | element jndi-name { string }), element init { any }? } resin, server, host-default, host, web-app-default, web-app

Defines a database resource.

The database configuration section has more details on the configuration. A code pattern for using databases is in a DataSource tutorial.

<database jndi-name='jdbc/test_mysql'> <driver type="com.mysql.jdbc.jdbc2.optional.MysqlConnectionPoolDataSource"> <url>jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/test</url> <user></user> <password></password> </driver> </database>
resin, server, host-default, host, web-app-default, web-app

Configures an EJB/CMP server. See the CMP configuration for more details.

resin, server, host-default, host, web-app-default, web-app

Configures a JNDI scalar value for JNDI-based application configuration.

Some application beans prefer to retrieve configuration data from JNDI, including String, Integer, and Double constants. env-entry configures that data in the current context. As with other Resin configuration, the value can use JSP-EL expressions.

The example configuration stores a string in java:comp/env/greeting. Following the J2EE spec, the env-entry-name is relative to java:comp/env. If the env-entry is in the <host> context, it will be visible to all web-apps in the host.

<env-entry> <env-entry-name>greeting</env-entry-name> <env-entry-type>java.lang.String</env-entry-type> <env-entry-value>Hello, World</env-entry-value> </env-entry>

The following servlet fragment is a typical use in a servlet. The servlet only looks up the variable once and stores it for later use.

import java.io.*; import javax.naming.*; import javax.servlet.*; import javax.servlet.http.*; public class TestServlet extends HttpServlet { private String greeting; public void init() throws ServletException { try { Context env = (Context) new InitialContext().lookup("java:comp/env"); greeting = (String) env.lookup("greeting"); } catch (NamingException e) { throw new ServletException(e); } } ... } element env-entry { (attribute env-entry-name { string } | element env-entry-name { string }), (attribute env-entry-type { string } | element env-entry-type { string }), (attribute env-entry-value { string } | element env-entry-value { string }) } resin, server, host-default, host, web-app-default, web-app

Links a foreign JNDI contexts or JNDI object.

Resin's JNDI can link to foreign JNDI contexts. For example, third-party EJB servers will often expose their EJB beans through a JNDI context. jndi-link will create the appropriate InitialContextFactory, configure it, and lookup the foreign JNDI objects.

<jndi-link> <jndi-name>java:comp/env/ejb/traderHome</jndi-name> <factory>weblogic.jndi.WLInitialContextFactory</factory> <init-param java.naming.provider.url="t3://localhost:7001"/> <foreign-name>statelessSession/TraderHome</foreign-name> </jndi-link> <jndi-link> <jndi-name>java:comp/env/ejb/MyBean</jndi-name> <foreign-name>/SampleBean</foreign-name> </jndi-link> resin, server, host-default, host, web-app-default, web-app

Configures a JNDI ObjectFactory.

JNDI ObjectFactories are used to create objects from JNDI references. The <reference> tag configures the ObjectFactory and stores it in JNDI.

<reference> <jndi-name>hessian/hello</jndi-name> <factory>com.caucho.hessian.client.HessianProxyFactory</factory> <init url="http://localhost:8080/ejb/hello"/> type="test.HelloHome"/> </reference> resin, server, host-default, host, web-app-default, web-app

Configures a custom bean resource and stores in JNDI.

Resources are beans stored in JNDI. The resources can be created from any Java class that conforms to the bean conventions. Configuration of the resource is in the <init> section. Field values may use JSP-EL expressions as well as constant strings or even complex sub-beans.

<resource jndi-name="env/test"> <type>test.MyBean</type> <init> <greeting>Hello</greeting> <server>${serverId}</server> <sub-bean> <value>${2 + 2}</value> </sub-bean> </init> </resource> r_listener-Resource = element listener { r_mbean-name, r_handback* } r_resource = element resource { (r_jndi-name? & r_mbean-name? & r_mbean-interface?), (r_type, r_arg*)?, (r_init* & r_listener-Resource*) } resin, server, host-default, host, web-app-default, web-app

Defines a deployment directory for .rar files.

Connectors and resources defined in .rar files must be deployed before they can be configured by connector. The <resource-deploy> tag specifies the directory for that deployment.

<host> <resource-deploy path="deploy"/> ... </host>
element resource-deploy { (attribute path { string } | element path { string }) & (attribute expand-path { string } | element expand-path { string })? } resin, server, host-default, host, web-app-default, web-app

Declares that the application needs a resouce configuration.

resource-ref is not directly used by Resin. It's a servlet configuration item intended to tell GUI tools which resources need configuration. Resource configuration in Resin uses the resource, reference, database, and ejb-server tags.

For backwards compatibility, Resin 2.1-style configuration files may still use resource-ref to configure resources, but it's recommended to convert the configuration.

Configures an authentication resource for the current context.

Resin's servlet authentication uses an authentication resource to validate user login and to provide single-signon capability. The authenticator is configured in the environment context where it is shared. So an authenticator configured in the web-app only applies to the web-app, but an authenticator configured in the host will apply to all hosts.

The authenticator class is selected with the type attribute. It can be any custom class extending com.caucho.server.security.AbstractAuthenticator. Configuration of the authenticator uses bean-style configuration in the <init> tag.

resin, server, host-default, host, web-app-default, web-app

Sets a Java system property. The effect is the same as if you had called before starting Resin.

<resin> <system-property foo="bar"/> </resin>
resin, server, host-default, host, web-app-default, web-app

Configures the Java compiler for automatically compiled files.

The javac configuration is used for JSP, XSL, EJB and compiling-loader configuration.

resin, server, host-default, host, web-app-default, web-app

Configures a path as a file which should force a reload when changed, like web.xml and resin.xml.

<web-app xmlns="http://caucho.com/ns/resin"> <dependency path="WEB-INF/struts-config.xml"/> ... </web-app> resin, server, host-default, host, web-app-default, web-app 2s

Configures how often the environment context should be checked for changes.

Resin automatically checks each environment for updates, generally class or configuration updates. Because these checks can take a considerable amount of time, deployment servers should use high values like 60s or more while development machines will want low values like 2s.

The interval defaults to the parent's interval. So the web-app will default to the host's value.

resin, server, host-default, host, web-app-default, web-app The default value is ISO-8859-1.

Specifies the default character encoding for the environment.

<web-app id='/'> <character-encoding>shift_jis</character-encoding> ... </web-app>
resin, server, host-default, host, web-app-default, web-app true on Windows, false on Unix.

Specifies whether the environment context is case sensitive or insensitive.

Because some operating systems are case-insensitive, it is important for security reasons for Resin to behave differently for case-sensitive and case-insensitive directories. For example, when case-insensitive is true, url-patterns will match in a case-insensitive manner, so TEST.JSP will work like test.jsp.

resin, server, host-default, host, web-app-default, web-app Defaults to WEB-INF/tmp

Application temp directory. This is the path used in javax.servlet.context.tempdir.

resin, server, host-default, host, web-app-default, web-app Defaults to WEB-INF/work

Application work directory. This is the directory used for generated code like JSP, XSL and EJB classes.
