This week in JBoss (7th December) - Yet an other week in the JBoss community



Yet again an other week has passed in the JBoss Community, and as always, a lot content was released that will most likely interest you. Especially this week a lot of JBoss/Java related content were published on the Red Hat Developers Blog, so if you don't check this blog, you will be happy to see them mentioned here below... Higher Level Point of ViewWhile we love our gritty, low-level, technical tidbits (and we have a techbytes section for that below), it is always nice to take a step back, and look at the big picture, now and then. In this context, I think you will find the article on Hexagonal Architecture as a Natural fit for Apache Camel, quite interesting. I also like the The State of Microservices Survey 2017 that was released last week too. Evangelist's Corner As always, JBoss's evangelist are keeping our community update, releasing, every week, a lot of passionating content. Last week, Eric D.Schabell has thus provided us a nice How to install new OpenShift Container Platform 3.7 in minutes , along with an article on Zero to Cloud Ops on Container Development Kit (CDK) in Minutes. So, if you literally have only 5 minutes this week, those are articles are for you  TechbytesSo after high level considerations and some tutorial, let's go deep into technical details with this short but pretty neat article on Calling JDK Tools Programmatically on Java 9. Then, if you want more, let's take a look at Securing AMQ7 Routers with SSL. That should do it, don't it ? No ? Want more ? No problem, let's look at Keycloak Identity Brokering with OpenShift ! And, by the way, if you like OpenShift, you should be very interested by last announcement about Red Hat OpenShift Application Runtimes (RHOAR)! Events and communityIf you want a good excuse to good to Paris (or France), you will be happy to hear that Devoxx France 2018 just open its Call for Paper! So please, go submit your talks proposal before mid January! If you are doing anything with Hibernate related project, also don't forget to check their Hibernate Community Newsletter 23/2017 that was just released.Releases, releases, releases... ... and as always, our thriving community has seen its fair share of software releases in the last week - including maintenance release of two very important project (Teiid and Keycloak):Arquillian Container SE 1.0.2.Final ReleasedKeycloak 3.4.1.CR1 releasedand Keycloak: Keycloak 3.4.1.FinalTeiid 10.0.1 Released Hopefully, you have found something in this week's editorial to pique your interest and give you something to explore while waiting for next week's installment. Join us here next week for more news from the JBoss Community.[...]

This week in JBoss (30th November)



As many are coming back to work after the Thanksgiving holiday, we are seeing a flurry of bog posts and a significant number of Arquillian releases. Read on to find out more...


Back from Madrid JUG and Codemotion Madrid!!

Galder Zamarreño & Thomas Segismont attended the Codemotion Madrid conference. In this post Galder talks about the conference and in particular their talks. These talks covered data analytics using Infinispan-based data grids and streaming data with Infinispan, Vert.x and OpenShift.


AppDev in the Cloud with Financial Customer Evaluation Solution

In this post Eric Schabell shows us how to get started with the Customer Evaluation Demo using the JBoss BPM Suite on OpenShift Container Platform.


Introducing the Hibernate Search JSR 352 mass indexing job

Originally started as a Google Summer of Code project by Mincong Huang, Hibernate Search 5.9 will feature integration with JSR 352, "Batch Applications for the Java Platform". This integration provides a new implementation of mass indexing (indexing a high volume of entities) as a JSR 352 job. Read this post to learn more.



This week in JBoss (23rd November) - Thanksgiving edition ...



It's been a rather quiet week, probably due to a lot of our team getting ready for US Thanksgiving. But there has been some activity and in the spirit of getting something out (release early, release often) ...


The Infinispan and Vert.x teams are in Madrid this week for Codemotion (I hope they're getting better weather than some of us!) If you are in the area then this is a great opportunity to go and see a couple of our teams and give them feedback, learn the roadmaps etc. And even though some of the team are in Spain, they managed to put out an update to the Infinispan/Spark connector, which Gustavo discusses. Plus an update to the C++ and C# Hotrod clients!


As usual, there's the Hibernate Community Newsletter to browse while you're working or digesting turkey! And we've even had a Teiid release, version 9.3.5 this time. Congratulations to the team!!


While I've got your attention I'll take the opportunity to remind you all about EE4J. I've spoken about this before on my blog, but there's been a lot of activity in the last few days as we've started to ask for input on the new Java EE brand name (EE4J is the project, not the brand), as well as moving some specifications and reference implementations across to the project, as you can see from the twitter feed:



Please take a look and get involved.


OK that's it for this week!

This week in JBoss (17th November 2017)



Welcome back to another edition of JBoss Weekly! We’re excited to bring to you news from across the net relating to JBoss Middleware. Those of you who attended Devoxx Belgium, we hope you had the opportunity to speak with our engineers there!Releases We’ll kick off the editorial with the releases made in Middleware this past week:Arquillian Cube 1.9.2Shrinkwrap Resolver 3.0.0Arquillian Drone 2.4.4Arquillian Drone 2.4.5Arquillian Smart Testing 0.0.4Arquillian Core 1.1.4As you can see, the Arquillian team has been on a roll this past week!

Samuel Mendenhall shares a plenitude of advice from rebuilding an Angular app to a React app. It’s a longer post, but if you’re getting started with React, or experiencing some difficulties you’ll want to read it.If you’re at the point of embracing Java 9 and the new modules system, you’ll be thrilled to know that starting with Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio 11.1 supports Java 9! Eclipse doesn’t have to be running on Java 9, but a Java 9 JDK must be on the build path for the project. JBDS 11.1 offers help to convert to Java modules as well. Read Jeff Maury’s post about the Java 9 support for full details.Lastly, the Red Hat Developer Program has rolled out a new topic about secure programming. We all know security isn’t something to be taken lightly, however, it isn’t always the easiest of things to understand and get right. Lucy Kerner details the current tools on the website. Be sure to read both and get a good idea of what’s being offered and how it can help! Thanks everyone for another amazing week! We hope you’re prepared for the year-end holidays and hope you have a fantastic week.[...]

RESTEasy 4.0.0.Beta1, JAX-RS 2.1 and more



Back at the end of July I mentioned that the team would have focussed on JSR-370... and here I am few months later, happy to announce that the first Beta release of RESTEasy 4 has been tagged over the weekend and it features JAX-RS 2.1 implementation.

However this beta comes with more additions... besides for the implementation of the latest specification for RESTful webservices in Java, here is a brief list of what's new:

The full release notes are available on jira, the artifacts are built and published on Maven repositories and the sources are on GitHub as usual ;-)

Please consider trying the latest release and providing feedback!


The Week in JBoss (2017-11-09)



Modern Transaction Programming TechniquesThis week Tom Jenkinson blogged about recent standardisation effort in the Microservices arena. This standard allows highly concurrent environments to gain many of the benefits of a traditional transaction, with a reduced impact on throughput.In addition, Michael Musgrove blogged about Narayana's Software Transactional Memory (STM) implementation. In particular he showed how it can be used with the actor model features of Vert.x and the scaling features of OpenShift. 5 Pillars of a Successful Java Web ApplicationIn this series of posts Eder Ignatowicz describes the 5 pillars that have allowed his team to successfully keep a 7+ year-old Java application up-to-date, whilst combining modern techniques with a legacy codebase of more than 1 million LOC, using an agile, sustainable, and evolutionary web approach.

This week in JBoss (2nd November 2017) - Time to meet Debezium



As always, last week have seen its fair share of action in the JBoss Community, with multiples releases and many interesting (and technical) content being released, but especially the Debezium project has been going the extra mile to allow to discover their product, crafting a nice tutorial and even providing OpenShift and Docker files to help play with it... So go check it out ! Change data capture with Debezium (and even on OpenShift!) The Debezium team just released version 0.6.1 of their change data capturing (CDC) tool for MySQL, Postgres and MongoDB (support for further databases is coming soon).  For those eager to try out CDC themselves, there's a tutorial running you through the set-up of Debezium and its required services like Apache Kafka. There are now Docker Compose files for all the supported databases, which make it a breeze to start the infrastructure used in the tutorial and see Debezium in action. You would like to set up Debezium on OpenShift? Then we got good news for you, too; There are detailed instructions on how to do that available on the Debezium website now. And using Minishift, you can easily try this out on an OpenShift cluster running on your local machine. Development of Debezium is in full swing, enabling many use cases such as data replication, data synchronization between different microservices or updating full-text search indexes. If you got any input or questions on Debezium, the development team is looking forward to hearing from you in the Debezium discussion group. Building and consuming Virtual Microdatabase Teiid - on which the Red Hat product JBoss Data Virtualization is based on, is rather powerful and interesting tool, that is (to my experience) yet to be well spread and understand. So I'm very happy about this new walk through released last week, presenting, in detail, how one set up and consume, in just a few click, a virtual database. On top of this tutorial, a rather intriguing article on Low-risk Monolith to Microservice Evolution has been released last week, and will certainly allow to go even deeper and farther with Teiid. Fun with SSL (and Kafka) In the last few years, with security becoming more and more of concerns (as it should!), setting up Java solution to directly use SSL have been  an increasing practise (oppose to the days when this was delegated to the load-balancer in front of them). In this context, it is nice to have a tutorial, such as this one released last week on Kafka with OpenSSL. But it is even more appreciable to have also an article on how to test SSL set up (and how): SSL Testing Tool. So no more excuse to run insecure services ! Techbytes If your technical thirst for technical exploration or learning is still not quenched by all of those articles, there still a couple more thing you can explore. First, if you are hookup on Drools and the related jBPM ecosystem, you checkout the Improved KIE Server documentation along with this article on Sub cases for case instance and ... process instance (jBPM). And maybe simply explore the Bean Validation benchmark revisited ? Evangelist's Corner Eric D. Schabell's 10 Steps to Cloud Happiness series is still ongoing and last week saw the release of Step 5 - Real Process Improvement - certainly a teasing title, isn't it ! Go check it out ! (or catch up on the series by starting with Step 1 - Get a Cloud. Also, if you are happen to be an Infinispan fan (or just interested by it), see if you can join the upcoming event featuring talks about it: Infinispan coming to Duchess France and Devoxx Belgium ! Releases, releases, releases... Keycloak 3.3.0.Final releasedInfinispan 9.2.0.Alpha2 & 9.1.2.Final releasedDebezium 0.6.1 is ReleasedBugfix releases for Hibernate Search 5.6, 5.7 and 5.8 - Please note this releases includes fixes for CVE-2[...]

The Week in JBoss - WildFly 11 Final is here!



The big news this week is... WildFly 11 Final was released this week. As you would expect for a major WildFly release, it comes with many significant improvements. Including: Elytron - New Security Infrastructure. The biggest change in WildFly 11 is unification on a new common security framework across the full application server.Simplified EJB / Naming Proxies. JNDI and EJB invocation have both been simplified and enhanced in WildFly 11.Request oriented EJB/JNDI over HTTP.WildFly OpenSSL & HTTP/2. WildFly 11 now provides a JSSE provider that can offload TLS handling from the JVM’s internal implementation to an OpenSSL library on your system, typically improving TLS performance.New Load-Balancer Configs. In order to simplify the setup of WildFly as an HTTP load-balancer, there is an additional standalone-load-balancer.xml configuration in the distribution, which is an instance slimmed to just running the load balancing services.Graceful Shutdown/Startup Improvements. Distributed transactions are now handled by the graceful shutdown mechanism.Web Console Improvements. A number of Web Console improvements are included in WildFly 11, including the ability to see recent configuration changes, to manage active JMS transactions, manage active batch jobs, manage Undertow filters, and test data-sources during creation.Management and Configuration Improvements. WildFly 11 now supports remote managed exploded deployments, which allows remote management clients the ability to update content within the deployment, such as html and jsp files without requiring a full redeployment. Read more here. Microservices & Microprofile It's been a busy week for Microservices content. Christian Posta continues his series on Low-risk Monolith to Microservice Evolution, which looks to be a great writeup for those planning a migration to a Microservices architecture. Ken Finnigan provides a step-by-step guide to setting up data streaming with WildFly Swarm and Apache Kafka. Cesar Saavedra continues his guide on setting up a MicroProfile-based microservice on OpenShift Container Platform.

This week in JBoss (20th October 2017): Microservices and more



Welcome to another edition of the JBoss Weekly Editorial, our regular visit to the JBoss Communities in search of all that is new and interesting Monitoring Microservices The Eclipse MicroProfile 1.2 release introduces a number of aspects which enable monitoring of microservices, two of which are health checks and metrics.  These features are simple to enable within a microservice written to the specification, more details on how this can be achieved can be found in Heiko's article on the subject. Integrating a MicroService with JBoss Data Grid In the third part of his tutorial series covering the development of a microservice running on OpenShift Cesar describes how to deploy and configure an instance of JBoss Data Grid before covering the necessary changes to invoke the service from his existing microservice. Evolving a Monolithic Application into Microservices Having set the context in the first article of his series describing how to transition a monolithic application over to a microservices architecture Christian shows how to decompose his example monolothic application into individual services while retaining the same functionality. WildFly and Elytron Jan Kalina has written two articles discussing aspects of the new Elytron security subsystem being introduced in the upcoming WildFly 11 release.  In his first article Jan shows how we can configure the Elytron subsystem to secure the server side portion of an SSL exchange and in his second article he shows how we can extend the configuration to enforce verification of the client certificates. OpenID Connect Identity Brokering using Red Hat Single Sign-On Red Hat Single Sign-On (RH-SSO) supports identity federation based on a number of specifications including OpenID Connect, if you are interested in this capability then take a look at Tom's tutorial where he explains the concepts behind identity federation and shows how this can be enabled through RH-SSO. 10 Steps to Cloud Happiness In the next article of his Cloud Happiness series, Eric Schabell introduces us to his third step towards happiness and shows how we can enhance our existing cloud and include a unified management and operations environment through the installation of Red Hat CloudForms. Container Images for OpenShift At this year's EMEA Red Hat Tech Exchange 2017 Frédéric Giloux gave a presentation discussing good practices for creating images running within OpenShift, in the last two sections covering his session Frédéric discusses how to make your images easier to consume and the aspects of cloud ready applications and their consequences for container image design. Installing Red Hat Mobile on OpenShift If you are interested in trying out the Red Hat Mobile Application Platform (RHMAP) then Brian's article will be of interest to you.  Starting from scratch Brian will take you through all the steps necessary to deploy a demonstration environment on an AWS OpenShift environment, leaving you with a sandboxed environment to explore the platform. Infinispan Cache Store Batch Operations Infinispan 9.1.x introduces the ability to batch write and delete operations on a cache store, significantly improving the performance of write-behind cache stores.  There are some minor configuration changes associated with this new feature along with two additional methods you should implement on your cache store. Data Authorisation in Case Management In his next article discussing jBPM's Case Management feature Maciej Swiderski covers some recent additions adding support for case file authorisation, case comment authorisation, closing cases with comments and indexing case file items for searching. Meeting Rafael Ponte In the [...]

This Week in JBoss (12th October 2017) : Sunshine in the Clouds



Running software in the clouds have been an essential topic of our industry for almost a decade now. While it used to be reserved to the cutting-edge, experimental and adventurous projects, it has been, in the last years, adopted largely by the industry. In this context, it is quite exciting to see all the news of last weeks surrounding the topic within the JBoss Community...10 Steps to Cloud Happiness If you have lived under a rock for the past decade, you may have no idea about cloud infrastructure - or maybe you never ended up using one. This editorial focuses a lot on cloud, so maybe you can take a look, at first, at the 10 steps tutorial started by Eric D.Schabell last week ? 10 Steps to Cloud Happiness: Step 1 - Get a Cloud10 Steps to Cloud Happiness: Step 2 - Use a Service Catalog Best way into the Clouds - OpenShiftWell, this might only be my opinion - so feel free to disagree - but I do think OpenShift is one of the best ways to get into a cloud infrastructure. And there was quite a lot of nifty informations about it released last week. First of all this pretty interesting article on JBoss A-MQ on OpenShift Cheat Sheet, will certainly help you manage your favorite MoM on a OpenShift container.To go further down the road, you may even want to explore how to properly maintain your own images in OpenShift, than this first installment of a series of articles on Container Images for OpenShift (Part 1: Objectives) will certainly reveals itself to be an excellent starting point. Last, but certainly not the least, an announcement from Red Hat and Alibaba, just yesterday, shows how much traction Cloud is having in our industry : Red Hat and Alibaba Cloud Join Forces to Bring Increased Flexibility with Open Source.Eclipse - Java Tooling for the Sky As much as cloud infrastructure is bringing easiness of deployment and scalable performance to your (Java) application, one still needs to write and design a resilient and robust application, not to mention the increasing need for the app to be as secure as possible against the many hacking threats out there.Fortunately, the Eclipse project keeps enhancing the IDE, enabling us, developers, to write better apps. If you doubt, just take an eye at this article on Java code coverage in Eclipse! I'm pretty sure you never thought of using code coverage this way.... It is also nice to see the integration of Fuse technologies within Eclipse is making progress as shown by the following article: Fuse development environment with Development Suite installer.If you are excited by the new evolution or the future of the IDE, you should definitely join other members of the JBoss community, along with some Red Hat Developers at EclipseCon Europe on the 24th and 25th of October in Ludwigsburg, near Stuttgart, in Germany. Hibernation season has started Despite the actual meaning of its name, the Hibernate community has also been very active and keeping up with what is happening within the projects. It would require a separate article to cover it all! Fortunately, last week saw the release of the Hibernate Community Newsletter 19/2017 , so you just this need to check this out to get updated, and to make your user experience even smoother, the Hibernate websites get a facelift! Techbytes Of course, not everything things is about cloud. As always, the JBoss community having been working on numerous projects and keep offering improvements of all sort to their users. For instance, Apache Camel fans will be very happy to read (more) about Apache Camel route coverage tooling on the way. Or maybe you would like to learn how to set up Hawkular Alerts in ManageIQ? Or rather how to Run an Embedded WildFly Host Controller in the CLI? See, plenty of advanced materials there, but maybe you [...]

This Week in JBoss (10 October 2017)



Welcome back to another weekly editorial! Those of you catching up from JavaOne, we hope you found time to visit the booth and try out! There are a number of posts to cover this week, so, let’s get started.Releases We’ll start out with releases this time. There’s only three of them this week, but that doesn’t mean we’ve slacked off.Hibernate Search 5.8.1.Final released a couple of days ago. There are many fixes for ElasticSearch in this maintenance release.Wildfly Swarm 2017.10.0 also released two days ago.The first of the Infinispan 9.2.0 branch released today, check it out!Announcements By far the biggest announcement in the Java EE space happened earlier in the week with the announcement of EE4J! Our very own Mark Little blogged about it. If this is the first you’re seeing of it, be sure to read Mark’s blog and check out the charter. Everyone is welcome to participate. Please sign up for the mailing list and help us all move Enterprise Java forward!If you’re running on RHEL, you may be excited for the next couple of blogs from Mike Guerette. Earlier in the week, Red Hat announced the availability of Red Hat Developer Toolset 7.0 Beta. This beta brings updates to GCC (7.2) and adds Clang/LLVM 4.0.1, Go 1.8.3, and Rust 1.2.0 to the list of supported compilers! In addition to those, Mike also announced Red Hat Software Collections 3.0 Beta which includes other updates and also new additions.Blog Highlights To round out the week, there are a number of blog posts we’d like to highlight.WildflyWildfly 11 will bring with it a number of changes. Among those changes is integration with Apache ActiveMQ Artemis. Be sure to read the blog for changes and new features available. There’s also support for OpenSSL. The post details setup, security realms, and Elytron all with OpenSSL support! Lastly, Wildfly 11 improves the existing referential integrity found in Wildfly 10.Spring Boot on KubernetesKamesh Sampath has done a series of posts over on the Red Hat Developer blog detailing configuring Spring Boot on Kubernetes. The introduction of the series covers the initial idea of using Kubernetes for configuration of a Spring Boot application. Part I covers using ConfigMaps for configuration. Part II details the use of Secrets for sensitive information. These are great alternatives to the Spring Config server.OpenSlavaLastly, Eric Schabell was at OpenSlava this past week. All of his talks and slides are available on his blog and SlideShare! Thank you, everyone! We hope you’ve had a great week![...]

EE4J - Life Beyond Java EE Begins Today!



I already wrote about the work we, IBM and Oracle have been doing together to move Java EE to a foundation. At the time I couldn't say which foundation but now we know it's Eclipse and that the project will be called Eclipse Enterprise For Java (EE4J). There's a draft charter and it's vitally important that interested people read it and give feedback on the mailing list. There's a lot of pent-up passion and energy around Java EE and it would be so much better if individuals focussed that on the charter at this point than complaining about the name. Yes, I understand that some people feel the name is important to the success of this effort but I can tell you all that there's a lot more to choosing a name for a foundation or massively successful project than just ... choosing the name. Having done this when we renamed JBossAS to WildFly, you've got to do trademark searches, domain checks, legal verifications etc. and of course that the name or acronym doesn't mean something inappropriate in a different language. So getting to a name like EE4J isn't easy and changing it now is simply not going to be possible. Plus you can never please everyone all of the time.


There's a lot to do over the coming weeks and months. Moving the TCKs, specs and sources to the Eclipse Foundation is probably the easiest of the tasks, which isn't to suggest it's going to be easy. We've got to figure out the processes around which EE4J evolves, who leads the specifications, what about compatibility, evangelism, how does the JCP fit in, etc? And it's going to succeed or fail based upon the engagement of the entire Java (EE) communities. If you're invested in Java EE or anything related to it (yes, including Eclipse MicroProfile) then it's a great opportunity to step up and help drive this in an open manner. Gone are the cries of "this is dominated by Sun/Oracle" and "it's not open source". This is now an Eclipse Foundation effort and the best way to ensure this evolves in a direction with which you agree is to join and get involved!


I want to take a moment to thank everyone who has helped so far, obviously including Oracle and IBM. We've just completed the JCP Executive Committee F2F which always precedes JavaOne and the feedback from there when EE4J was presented was positive. Yes there are still a lot of unknowns, many of which I've mentioned above. But generally everyone thought this was a good thing!



This week in JBoss (28 Sept 2017) - To bodly go where to JavaOne has (not) gone before...



With the release of the new Start Trek TV series, I hope the reader will pardon me for this (not so) inspired title... Nevertheless, JavaOne is coming up and the JBoss Community is getting ready for it !!! JavaOneAs you are certainly aware, JavaOne is coming up soon and, of course, many member of the JBoss community are participating to the event. Namely, this week, some of them start announcing their presence, like Narayana team at JavaOne or Clément Escoffier teaser for his presentation on The Reactive Landscape. Pimp your JBoss Developer Studio - and then explore BPM & Rules !Last week, Eric D. Schabell took the time to make a coupl of blog entries regarding the JBoss Developer Studio (an Eclipse based IDE). Especially he focused on how to set up tooling for some important project of the community within the IDE:How To Setup Integration & SOA Tooling For JBoss Developer Studio 11 How To Setup BPM and Rules Tooling For JBoss Developer Studio 11  Once you have those tool properly installed, you will be all set to follow the 4 hours presentation, from last week, on Processes, Rules and Events: Watch Drools, jBPM and Optaplanner Day LIVE (Sept 26)  !Expanding your Horizon An Open Source community as thriving as the one of JBoss produces a lot of software, tool, and products to learn and try out. And when I mean a lot, I mean, like, a LOT.  It may be difficult to explore, follow and learn all of them, and this is why, I'm happy to see that many things happened last week to help one exactly do that. So, first, and this is a great news, the Camel in Action 2nd edition goes into production phase ! The announcement also includes some preview on the book content, so go check it out. Then comes Hibernate, that has become its own community of project within JBoss. Which makes it obviously a bit challenging to follow. Thankfully,  last week was released the Hibernate Community Newsletter 18/2017  which will caught you up on anything you may have missed ! Of course, there is almost no better way to learn than to be teached by the greatest. Especially when the greatest happens to be also an excellent teacher like Bela Ban. Indeed, Bela has announced a new series of JGroups workshops in Rome and Berlin in November. Having personally attendedhis workshop a couple of times, I can but only strongly recommend it. You will learn everything you ever wanted to know about JGroups - and more ! Techbytes After all this learning, and the all the upcoming exciting content coming up with JavaOne, you may want to scratch a (technical) hitch and play with some new tech. No worries, an Eclipse Vert.x Gradle Plugin tutorial might be just the fix you need. If not, take a look at how to Add Kerberos Authentication To Existing Web Application. Releases, releases, releases... Smart Testing 0.0.2 Released (Arqualian)Narayana 5.7.0.Final Released Decaf' Enough is enough ! You don't want to fire Eclipse, neither to debug some Java program, you need something else for a change ? You might be just in luck, because last week was released a very nice article on Ansible - A handy tool for people that might not need it. And being a big fan of Ansible, I can but only advise one to go read it... Hopefully, you have found something in this week's editorial to pique your interest and give you something to explore while waiting for next week's installment. Join us here next week for more news from the JBoss Community.[...]

How to use an Elytron SASL mechanism that supports channel binding



Some SASL mechanisms support channel binding to external secure channels like TLS. The name of a SASL mechanism tells us if channel binding is supported. In particular, SASL mechanisms that support the optional use of channel binding have two SASL mechanism names - one name that includes the “-PLUS” suffix, which implies that channel binding is supported, and one name without the “-PLUS” suffix, which implies that channel binding is not supported (e.g., GS2-KRB5 and GS2-KRB5-PLUS, SCRAM-SHA-256 and SCRAM-SHA-256-PLUS, etc.). Whether or not channel binding is used is determined during SASL mechanism negotiation. This blog post is going to show the server and client configuration needed to connect to the JBoss CLI using the SCRAM-SHA-256-PLUS mechanism, one of the SASL PLUS mechanisms provided by Elytron. Prerequisite configuration First, add a management user for the server - this is the user that we’re going to use later on when attempting to connect to the CLI. For this example, we’re going to create a filesystem-based identity store and add a user named “bob” with password “pAssw0rd” using the following CLI commands: /subsystem=elytron/filesystem-realm=exampleRealm:add(path=fs-realm-users,relative-to=jboss.server.config.dir) /subsystem=elytron/filesystem-realm=exampleRealm:add-identity(identity=bob) /subsystem=elytron/filesystem-realm=exampleRealm:set-password(identity=bob,clear={password=pAssw0rd})  Now, we’re going to add the filesystem-realm that we just created to the “ManagementDomain” security domain that is already defined in the default Elytron subsystem configuration and we’re going to make this the default security realm for this security domain: /subsystem=elytron/security-domain=ManagementDomain:list-add(name=realms, value={realm=exampleRealm}) /subsystem=elytron/security-domain=ManagementDomain:write-attribute(name=default-realm, value=exampleRealm)  Next, use the following commands to secure the management interface using Elytron: /core-service=management/management-interface=http-interface:write-attribute(name=http-upgrade,value={enabled=true, sasl-authentication-factory=management-sasl-authentication}) /core-service=management/management-interface=http-interface:write-attribute(name=http-authentication-factory,value=management-http-authentication) /core-service=management/management-interface=http-interface:undefine-attribute(name=security-realm)  Finally, generate a server keystore and a client truststore using the keytool command, as shown below. We’re going to use these to enable one-way SSL/TLS for the management interface. Generate the server keystore:keytool -genkeypair -alias localhost -keyalg RSA -keysize 1024 -validity 365 -keystore server.keystore.jks -dname "CN=localhost" -keypass secret -storepass secret  Export the server certificate:keytool -exportcert  -keystore server.keystore.jks -alias localhost -keypass secret -storepass secret -file server.cer  Import the server certificate into the client’s truststore:keytool -importcert -keystore client.truststore.jks -storepass secret -alias localhost -trustcacerts -file server.cer  Now we’re ready to proceed with the server and client configuration needed to use the SCRAM-SHA-256-PLUS mechanism. Configuring the server First, configure a key-store, key-manager, and server-ssl-context in the Elytron subsystem using the server keystore that we just created (the following commands assume the server.keystore.jks file is located in the $WILDFLY_HOME/standalone/configuration directory): /subsys[...]
