Connecting To OpenEJB or TomEE Through SSH
It can be very useful to connect to the server to get some informations.
For such a case OpenEJB/TomEE proposes to start with the Java EE server a SSH server. Currently the security is based on JAAS (see how to configure JAAS for TomEE for more information about it).
Simply extract the openejb-ssh jar in the lib of tomee (webapps/tomee/lib) or openejb libs (lib folder). Then simply connect using your JAAS credential.
Note: you can use the provisioning features of openejb to do this job!
Then simply activate the service manage: it is done setting the system property openejb.servicemanager.enabled to true.
Note: it can be done through the conf/system.properties file. Note2: please take care to not add space after true (not 'true ' for instance).
OpenEJB SSH Shell
Once you are connected you get some commands:
deploy : deploy an application
undeploy : undeploy an application
list: list deployed EJBs
classloader : print the classloader tree of the app specified by the id
jmx : interact with JMX jmx list: list mbeans jmx get ** jmx set
jmx invoke ([, …)
properties: print server configuration as properties
+ : execute the following script code using the following language with the JSR 223
+ : execute the following script using the language (from the extension of the file) with the JSR 223
ls : list the file in path is specified or in the base of the server if not
cat : print a file
part - : print the part of a file
Note1: JSR 223 can need to add some jar to openejb/tomee lib folder (groovy-all for instance to use groovy) Note2: ls, part, cat commands have to use $home and $base properties to specified the path
