Configure applications for session management in Web modules using scripting

 

Overview

Use the AdminApp object to set configurations in an application. Some configuration settings are not available through the AdminApp object. The following task uses the AdminConfig object to configure a session manager for a Web module in the application.

 

Procedure

  1. Start wsadmin

  2. Identify the deployment configuration object for the application and assign it to the deployment variable. For example:

    • Jacl

      set deployments [$AdminConfig getid /Deployment:myApp/]
      

    • Jython

      deployments = AdminConfig.getid('/Deployment:myApp/')
      print deployments
      

    where:

    set is a Jacl command
    deployments is a variable name
    $ is a Jacl operator for substituting a variable name with its value
    AdminConfig is an object that represents the WebSphere Application Server configuration
    getid is an AdminConfig command
    Deployment is an attribute
    myApp is the value of the attribute

    Example output:

    myApp(cells/mycell/applications/myApp.ear/deployments/myApp|deployment.xml#Deployment_1)
    

  3. Get all the modules in the application and assign them to the modules variable. For example:

    • Jacl

      set appDeploy [$AdminConfig showAttribute $deployments deployedObject]
      set mod1 [$AdminConfig showAttribute $appDeploy modules]
      

      Example output:

      (cells/mycell/applications/myApp.ear/deployments/myApp:deployment.xml#WebModuleDeployment_1)
      (cells/mycell/applications/myApp.ear/deployments/myApp:deployment.xml#EJBModuleDeployment_1)
      (cells/mycell/applications/myApp.ear/deployments/myApp:deployment.xml#WebModuleDeployment_2)
      

    • Jython

      appDeploy = AdminConfig.showAttribute(deployments, 'deployedObject')
      mod1 = AdminConfig.showAttribute(appDeploy, 'modules')
      print mod1
      

      Example output:

      [(cells/mycell/applications/myApp.ear/deployments/myApp|deployment.xml#WebModuleDeployment_1) 
      (cells/mycell/applications/myApp.ear/deployments/myApp|deployment.xml#EJBModuleDeployment_1)
      (cells/mycell/applications/myApp.ear/deployments/myApp|deployment.xml#EJBModuleDeployment_2)]
      

    where:

    set is a Jacl command
    appDeploy is a variable name
    mod1 is a variable name
    $ is a Jacl operator for substituting a variable name with its value
    AdminConfig is an object that represents the WebSphere Application Server configuration
    showAttribute is an AdminConfig command
    deployments evaluates the ID of the deployment object that is specified in step number 1
    deployedObject is an attribute

  4. To obtain a list of attributes that one can set for a session manager, use the attributes command. For example:

    • Jacl

      $AdminConfig attributes SessionManager
      

    • Jython

      print AdminConfig.attributes('SessionManager')
      

    where:

    $ is a Jacl operator for substituting a variable name with its value
    AdminConfig is an object that represents the WebSphere Application Server configuration
    attributes is an AdminConfig command
    SessionManager is an attribute

    Example output:

    "accessSessionOnTimeout Boolean"
    "allowSerializedSessionAccess Boolean"
    "context ServiceContext@"
    "defaultCookieSettings Cookie"
    "enable Boolean"
    "enableCookies Boolean"
    "enableProtocolSwitchRewriting Boolean"
    "enableSSLTracking Boolean"
    "enableSecurityIntegration Boolean"
    "enableUrlRewriting Boolean"
    "maxWaitTime Integer"
    "properties Property(TypedProperty)*"
    "sessionDRSPersistence DRSSettings"
    "sessionDatabasePersistence SessionDatabasePersistence"
    "sessionPersistenceMode ENUM(DATABASE, DATA_REPLICATION, NONE)"
    "tuningParams TuningParams"
    

  5. Set up the attributes for session manager. The following example sets four top-level attributes in the session manager. You can modify the example to set other attributes in the session manager, including the nested attributes in Cookie, DRSSettings, SessionDataPersistence, and TuningParms object types. To list the attributes for those object types, use the attributes command of AdminConfig object.

    • Jacl

      set attr0 [list enable true]
      set attr1 [list enableSecurityIntegration true]
      set attr2 [list maxWaitTime 30]
      set attr3 [list sessionPersistenceMode NONE]
      set attr4 [list enableCookies true]
      set attr5 [list invalidationTimeout 45]
      set tuningParmsDetailList [list $attr5]
      set tuningParamsList [list tuningParams $tuningParmsDetailList]
      set pwdList [list password 95ee608]
      set userList [list userId Administrator]
      set dsNameList [list datasourceJNDIName jdbc/session]
      set dbPersistenceList [list $dsNameList $userList $pwdList]
      set sessionDBPersistenceList [list $dbPersistenceList]
      set sessionDBPersistenceList [list sessionDatabasePersistence $dbPersistenceList]
      set kuki [list maximumAge 1000]
      set cookie [list $kuki]
      set cookieSettings [list defaultCookieSettings $cookie]
      set sessionManagerDetailList [list $attr0 $attr1 $attr2 $attr3 $attr4 $cookieSettings $tuningParamsList $sessionDBPersistenceList]
      set sessionMgr [list sessionManagement $sessionManagerDetailList]
      set id [$AdminConfig create ApplicationConfig $appDeploy [list $sessionMgr] configs]
      set targetMappings [lindex [$AdminConfig showAttribute $appDeploy targetMappings] 0]
      set attrs [list config $id]
      $AdminConfig modify $targetMappings [list $attrs]
      

      Example output using Jacl:

      sessionManagement {{enableSecurityIntegration true} {maxWaitTime 30} {sessionPersistenceMode NONE} {enabled true}}
      

    • Jython

      attr0 = ['enable', 'true']
      attr1 = ['enableSecurityIntegration', 'true']
      attr2 = ['maxWaitTime', 30]
      attr3 = ['sessionPersistenceMode', 'NONE']
      attr4 = ['enableCookies', 'true']
      attr5 = ['invalidationTimeout', 45]
      tuningParmsDetailList = [attr5]
      tuningParamsList = ['tuningParams', tuningParmsDetailList]
      pwdList = ['password', '95ee608']
      userList = ['userId', 'Administrator']
      dsNameList = ['datasourceJNDIName', 'jdbc/session']
      dbPersistenceList = [dsNameList, userList, pwdList]
      sessionDBPersistenceList = [dbPersistenceList]
      sessionDBPersistenceList = ['sessionDatabasePersistence', dbPersistenceList]
      kuki = ['maximumAge', 1000]
      cookie = [kuki]
      cookieSettings = ['defaultCookieSettings', cookie]
      sessionManagerDetailList = [attr0, attr1, attr2, attr3, attr4, cookieSettings, tuningParamsList, sessionDBPersistenceList]
      sessionMgr = ['sessionManagement', sessionManagerDetailList]
      id = AdminConfig.create('ApplicationConfig', appDeploy,[sessionMgr], 'configs')
      targetMappings = AdminConfig.showAttribute(appDeploy, 'targetMappings')
      targetMappings = targetMappings[1:len(targetMappings)-1]
      print targetMappings
      attrs = ['config', id]
      AdminConfig.modify(targetMappings,[attrs])
      

      Example output using Jython:

      [sessionManagement, [[enableSecurityIntegration, true], [maxWaitTime, 30], [sessionPersistenceMode, NONE]]
      

  6. Set up the attributes for the Web module. For example:

    • Jacl

      set nameAttr [list name myWebModuleConfig]
      set descAttr [list description "Web Module config post create"]
      set webAttrs [list $nameAttr $descAttr $sessionMgr]
      

      Example output:

      {name myWebModuleConfig} {description {Web Module config post create}} 
      {sessionManagement {{enableSecurityIntegration true} {maxWaitTime 30} 
      {sessionPersistenceMode NONE} {enabled true}}}
      
      

    • Jython

      nameAttr = ['name', 'myWebModuleConfig']
      descAttr = ['description', "Web Module config post create"]
      webAttrs = [nameAttr, descAttr, sessionMgr]
      

      Example output:

      [[name, myWebModuleConfig], [description, "Web Module config post create"], 
      [sessionManagement, [[enableSecurityIntegration, true], [maxWaitTime, 30],  
      [sessionPersistenceMode, NONE], [enabled, true]]]]
      

    where:

    set Jacl command
    nameAttr, descAttr, webAttrs are variable names
    $ Jacl operator for substituting a variable name with its value
    name is an attribute
    myWebModuleConfig is a value of the name attribute
    description is an attribute
    Web Module config post create is a value of the description attribute

  7. Create the session manager for each Web module in the application. You can modify the following example to set other attributes of the session manager in a Web module configuration.

    • Jacl

      foreach module $mod1 {
           if {[regexp WebModuleDeployment $module] == 1} {
              $AdminConfig create WebModuleConfig $module $webAttrs
            $AdminConfig save
           }
        }
      $AdminConfig save
      

    • Jython

      arrayModules = mod1[1:len(mod1)-1].split(" ")
      for module in arrayModules:
        if module.find('WebModuleDeployment') != -1:
          AdminConfig.create('WebModuleConfig', module, webAttrs)
          Adminconfig.save()
      

    Example output:

    myWebModuleConfig(cells/mycell/applications/myApp.ear/deployments/myApp|deployment.xml#WebModuleConfiguration_1)
    

  8. In a network deployment environment only, synchronize the node.
