Update: Tomcat 7.0.27 Integration with Atomikos 3.7.1

Installation is quite simple and it envolves the following steps:

1- Copy "atomikos-integration-extension-3.7.1-20120529.jar" into TOMCAT_HOME/lib folder.

This jar file contains:
  • 'AtomikosLifecycleListener.java'
  • 'EnhancedTomcatAtomikosBeanFactory.java'
  • 'pom.xml'
  • 'patch-README.txt'
Jar file and source code are available and attached to this page: atomikos-integration-extension-3.7.1-20120529.jar and atomikos-integration-extension-3.7.1-patch.zip

2- Edit "server.xml"

According to the needs of your application, standard and additional listeners which are available in Tomcat 7.0.27 should be added to 'TOMCAT_HOME/conf/server.xml' file. Then right after the last one, add this listener:
<Listener className="com.atomikos.tomcat.AtomikosLifecycleListener" />

3- Edit "context.xml"

Then edit the TOMCAT_HOME/conf/context.xml file. At the beginning of the file you should see this line:
<WatchedResource>WEB-INF/web.xml</WatchedResource>

Right after it, add that one:

<Transaction factory="com.atomikos.icatch.jta.UserTransactionFactory" />
"com.atomikos.tomcat.EnhancedTomcatAtomikosBeanFactory" should be set as factory for both JDBC and JMS connection factory resources. Below, you can see an example of 'context.xml':
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<!-- The contents of this file will be loaded for each web application -->
<Context>

    <!-- Default set of monitored resources -->
    <WatchedResource>WEB-INF/web.xml</WatchedResource>

  <!-- Atomikos Support for the Tomcat server - register Atomikos as java:comp/UserTransaction -->
  <Transaction factory="com.atomikos.icatch.jta.UserTransactionFactory" />
  <!-- Also register Atomikos TransactionManager as java:comp/env/TransactionManager -->
  <Resource name="TransactionManager"
            auth="Container"
            type="com.atomikos.icatch.jta.UserTransactionManager"
            factory="org.apache.naming.factory.BeanFactory" />

  <!-- Spring LoadTimeWeaver Support for the Tomcat server. -->
  <Loader loaderClass="org.springframework.instrument.classloading.tomcat.TomcatInstrumentableClassLoader"
          useSystemClassLoaderAsParent="false"/>

  <Resource name="jdbc/MyDb"
            auth="Container"
            type="com.atomikos.jdbc.AtomikosDataSourceBean"
            factory="com.atomikos.tomcat.EnhancedTomcatAtomikosBeanFactory"
            uniqueResourceName="MyDb_Resource"
            maxPoolSize="8"
            xaDataSourceClassName="org.apache.derby.jdbc.ClientXADataSource"
            xaProperties.databaseName="MyDb"           
            xaProperties.connectionAttributes="serverName=localhost;portNumber=1527;user=USER;password=PASSWORD;create=true"/>

  <Resource name="jms/ConnectionFactory"
            auth="Container"
            type="com.atomikos.jms.AtomikosConnectionFactoryBean"
            factory="com.atomikos.tomcat.EnhancedTomcatAtomikosBeanFactory"
            uniqueResourceName="ConnectionFactory_Resource"
            xaConnectionFactoryClassName="org.apache.activemq.ActiveMQXAConnectionFactory"
            xaProperties.brokerURL="tcp://localhost:61616?daemon=true"/>

Tomcat 7 Integration with Atomikos 3.5.2+

It is possible to fully integrate the Atomikos transaction manager into Tomcat. Doing it this way makes the transaction manager shared across all web applications exactly like with any full-blown J2EE server.

An apparently simpler way of configuring Tomcat6 with TransactionsEssentials is shown in this third-party blog entry: http://blog.vinodsingh.com/2009/12/jta-transactions-with-atomkios-in.html - we have not tested it though...

Important note

When the Atomikos transaction manager is installed globally in Tomcat, you now must also install your JDBC driver at the same global location (ie: into the TOMCAT_HOME/lib folder). If you dont do that, you will get a NoClassDefFoundErrors or a ClassNotFoundException or even a ClassCastException during your web application deployment.

This is not a limitation of Atomikos nor of Tomcat but of the J2EE class loading design that both Tomcat and Atomikos must follow.

Installation

Installation is quite simple, it just involves copying some JAR files, a property file and editing some Tomcat configuration files.

Atomikos Tomcat Lifecycle Class

The LifecycleListener has to be changed since release 3.5.2. The first class which calls UserTransactionManager.init() is the master for UserTransactionManager. It is not the first class which calls new UserTransactionManager(). Only the master closes UserTransactionManager with its close() method. Therefore UserTransactionManager.init() has to be called after the new operator.

Here is the revised source code:

Atomikos Lifecycle Listener.java

package com.atomikos.tomcat;

import org.apache.catalina.Lifecycle;
import org.apache.catalina.LifecycleEvent;
import org.apache.catalina.LifecycleListener;

import com.atomikos.icatch.jta.UserTransactionManager;

public class AtomikosLifecycleListener implements LifecycleListener
{

   private UserTransactionManager utm;

   public void lifecycleEvent(LifecycleEvent event)
   {
      try {
         if (Lifecycle.START_EVENT.equals(event.getType())) {
            if (utm == null) {
               utm = new UserTransactionManager();
            }
            utm.init();
         } else if (Lifecycle.AFTER_STOP_EVENT.equals(event.getType())) {
            if (utm != null) {
               utm.close();
            }
         }
      } catch (Exception e) {
      }
   }
}

Atomikos Tomcat BeanFactory Class

This JAR contains a single class file that is an enhanced version of Tomcat JNDI's Bean Factory. Here is its source code:

Bean Factory.java

package com.atomikos.tomcat;

import java.util.Enumeration;
import java.util.Hashtable;

import javax.naming.Context;
import javax.naming.Name;
import javax.naming.NamingException;
import javax.naming.RefAddr;
import javax.naming.Reference;
import javax.naming.spi.ObjectFactory;

import org.apache.naming.ResourceRef;
import org.apache.naming.factory.Constants;

import com.atomikos.beans.PropertyUtils;
import com.atomikos.jdbc.AtomikosDataSourceBean;

public class BeanFactory implements ObjectFactory
{

   public Object getObjectInstance(Object obj, Name name, Context nameCtx, Hashtable environment) throws NamingException
   {
      if (obj instanceof ResourceRef) {
         try {
            Reference ref = (Reference) obj;
            String beanClassName = ref.getClassName();
            Class beanClass = null;
            ClassLoader tcl = Thread.currentThread().getContextClassLoader();
            if (tcl != null) {
               try {
                  beanClass = tcl.loadClass(beanClassName);
               } catch (ClassNotFoundException e) {
               }
            } else {
               try {
                  beanClass = Class.forName(beanClassName);
               } catch (ClassNotFoundException e) {
                  e.printStackTrace();
               }
            }
            if (beanClass == null) {
               throw new NamingException("Class not found: " + beanClassName);
            }
            if (!AtomikosDataSourceBean.class.isAssignableFrom(beanClass)) {
               throw new NamingException("Class is not a AtomikosDataSourceBean: " + beanClassName);
            }

            AtomikosDataSourceBean bean = (AtomikosDataSourceBean) beanClass.newInstance();

            int i = 0;
            Enumeration en = ref.getAll();
            while (en.hasMoreElements()) {
               RefAddr ra = (RefAddr) en.nextElement();
               String propName = ra.getType();

               if (propName.equals(Constants.FACTORY) || propName.equals("singleton") || propName.equals("description") || propName.equals("scope") || propName.equals("auth")) {
                  continue;
               }

               String value = (String) ra.getContent();

               PropertyUtils.setProperty(bean, propName, value);

               i++;
            }

            bean.init();
            return bean;

         } catch (Exception ex) {
            throw (NamingException) new NamingException("error creating AtomikosDataSourceBean").initCause(ex);
         }

      } else {
         return null;
      }
   }
}

Copying TransactionsEssentials libraries

  • Drop the following JARs from the Atomikos distribution into the TOMCAT_HOME/lib folder:
    • transactions.jar
    • transactions-api.jar
    • transactions-jta.jar
    • transactions-jdbc.jar
    • atomikos-util.jar.jar
    • jta.jar

You should also copy the transactions-hibernate3.jar and/or transactions-hibernate2.jar at the same location if you're planning to use Hibernate.

Copying Atomikos configuration file

  • Drop the following properties file into the TOMCAT_HOME/lib folder: jta.properties

Edit server.xml

Then edit the TOMCAT_HOME/conf/server.xml file. At the beginning of the file you should see these four lines:

  <Listener className="org.apache.catalina.core.AprLifecycleListener" />
  <Listener className="org.apache.catalina.mbeans.ServerLifecycleListener" />
  <Listener className="org.apache.catalina.mbeans.GlobalResourcesLifecycleListener" />
  <Listener className="org.apache.catalina.storeconfig.StoreConfigLifecycleListener"/>

Right after the last one, add this fifth one:

 <Listener className="com.atomikos.tomcat.AtomikosLifecycleListener" />

Edit context.xml

Then edit the TOMCAT_HOME/conf/context.xml file. At the beginning of the file you should see this line:

 <WatchedResource>WEB-INF/web.xml</WatchedResource>

Right after it, add that one:

 <Transaction factory="com.atomikos.icatch.jta.UserTransactionFactory" />

Example application

Here is a sample application that demonstrates how you can run TransactionsEssentials in a web application after it has been globally installed.

It is a simple blueprint application that shows and updates the content of a single Derby database.

Download the sample application here: http://www.atomikos.com/pub/Documentation/Tomcat6Integration35/dbtest.war

To install it, simply copy the WAR file in Tomcat's webapps folder. You also need to install Derby's JDBC driver in TOMCAT_HOME/lib.

You can then access it via this URL: http://localhost:8080/dbtest/.

Notes

  • This demo uses an embedded Derby database. If it doesn't exist a new one is created in TOMCAT_HOME/work or else, the existing one is reused.
  • The transactions logs and debug logs are stored in TOMCAT_HOME/work.
  • You should get logs during Tomcat's startup and shutdown:
    • during startup: INFO: starting Atomikos Transaction Manager 3.3.0
    • during shutdown: INFO: shutting down Atomikos Transaction Manager

Using MySQL

The example uses Derby - however it can be configured with MySQL by changing the webapp context similar to this:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Context path="/dbtest" docBase="dbtest.war"
reloadable="true" crossContext="true">
<!-- Resource configuration for JDBC datasource-->
<Resource
name="jdbc/myDB"
auth="Container"
type="com.atomikos.jdbc.AtomikosDataSourceBean"
factory="com.atomikos.tomcat.BeanFactory"
uniqueResourceName="jdbc/myDB"
xaDataSourceClassName="com.mysql.jdbc.jdbc2.optional.MysqlXADataSource"
xaProperties.databaseName="test"
xaProperties.serverName="localhost"
xaProperties.port="3306"
xaProperties.user="USER"
xaProperties.password="PASSWORD"
xaProperties.url="jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/test"
/>
</Context>

Remember to change the parameter values to your specific environment...

Using WebSphere MQ

This example shows how to define pooled JMS Queue Connection Factories and Queues for WebSphere MQ. Note that the uniqueResourceName MUST contain the text MQSeries_XA_RMI.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Context path="/dbtest" docBase="dbtest.war"
reloadable="true" crossContext="true">

<Resource 
name="jms/myQCF" 
auth="Container" 
type="com.atomikos.jms.AtomikosConnectionFactoryBean" 
factory="com.atomikos.tomcat.EnhancedTomcatAtomikosBeanFactory" 
uniqueResourceName="myQCF_MQSeries_XA_RMI" 
xaConnectionFactoryClassName="com.ibm.mq.jms.MQXAQueueConnectionFactory" 
xaProperties.queueManager="XXXX" 
xaProperties.hostName="hostname" 
xaProperties.port="1426" 
xaProperties.channel="XXXX" 
maxPoolSize="3" 
minPoolSize="1" />

<Resource name="jms/myQ" 
auth="Container" 
type="com.ibm.mq.jms.MQQueue" 
factory="com.ibm.mq.jms.MQQueueFactory" 
description="JMS Queue for reading messages" 
QU="MYQ.IN" 
CCSID="819" 
persistence="2" />         
</Context>

For this to work, you need an improved version of the Bean Factory described above, which can also handle JMS Connection Factory Beans:
