|Little-G: Downsize your application server
How many times have you built simple applications and had to use heavyweight application servers to deploy them? Do you know what percentage of the many Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) features you commonly use? I'd venture to guess only about 10%. Case in point: Apache Geronimo is a stable, open source, Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) 1.4-certified application server; but it's also feature rich, fat, and bulky. In an effort to build a simple, lightweight, but useful container for Web applications, the folks at Apache created Apache Geronimo Little-G, a stripped-down version of the original Geronimo application server. Though Little-G is not a J2EE-certified application server, it has most of the commonly used J2EE-compliant features, including a full Web container, a transaction manager, and database connectivity. In this article, you'll discover the features of Little-G and learn how to deploy and run Web applications on it.

With all the buzz that "The push for clustering" (developerWorks, December 2005) created, I'm revisiting this topic with a detailed interview with one of Apache Geronimo's clustering experts. You'll find out exactly what clustering is and get a look, in detail, at the WADI Application Distributed Infrastructure (WADI) project, one of the projects being combined with Geronimo to provide its clustering functionality.

|Migrating Apache Axis apps to Axis2 using Apache Geronimo
With the rise of Apache Axis and its latest successor, Axis2, developing Web services on Apache Geronimo has become easier and less cumbersome. Axis2 is an improvement over Axis, because a better architecture was implemented for Axis2, deployment was simplified, and Axis2 provides more data binding support. This article describes using a sample Web service and migrating a previously developed Web service in Axis to Axis2. The various changes and improvements in Axis2 over Axis are discussed as well as how this relates to deploying the newly migrated Axis2 Web service on the Geronimo application server.

|Sharing information between IBM portlets and JSR 168 portlets with WebSphere Portal V5.1
The capability of portlets to exchange information (also called inter-portlet communication or cooperative portlets) is powered by the property broker in WebSphere Portal. The WebSphere Portal V126.96.36.199 property broker does not support inter-communication between IBM portlets and JSR 168 portlets because they run within separate portlet containers. This article shows you how to write a custom portlet service to enable legacy IBM portlets and JSR 168 portlets to share information as properties. You also see how to manage the life cycle of a shared information property in a distributed environment, using the dynamic WebSphere Application Server caching feature.

|The Geronimo renegade: The exodus from JBoss to Apache Geronimo
Now that Apache Geronimo has earned Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) 1.4 certification and has reached version 1.1.1, many developers will be moving away from building their software on top of more restrictive platforms. Specifically, there have been a number of articles and tutorials written lately describing migrating away from the JBoss application server to Apache Geronimo. This installment of The Geronimo renegade column describes many advantages of doing so.

|Web Services Custom Data Binding, Part 1: How to choose a custom mapping technology for Web services
In most scenarios, the mapping from XML schema to Java, as defined by JAX-RPC, yields a suitable set of Java beans for handling your Web services data. However, there are cases when you may prefer an alternate mapping, or when there just isn't a well-defined mapping for your particular schema construct (xsd:choice is a common example). For these cases, IBM WebSphere V6 has introduced a new feature called Custom Data Binding that allows you to integrate alternate data binding technologies like JAX-B, EMF/SDO and XML beans, as well to define your own XML schema to Java mappings. This article provides an overview of the technology and how you can get started integrating it into your application.

|Create a login and registry system in Apache Geronimo, Part 2: Use JSP to build the registry system
This two-part article series demonstrates how to use declarative Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) security and Apache Geronimo's built-in Derby database to authenticate registered users and allow them access to a Web site using the Geronimo application server. Security is controlled using an SQL-type deployment plan that specifies what users or groups are allowed access to the Web site. This article, Part 2 in the series, focuses on using JavaServer Pages (JSP) to register new users who are then able to log in using the infrastructure setup shown in Part 1.

|Implement and deploy Web services in an Apache Geronimo application
In the last three years, Web services have taken the world by storm. Today, it does't matter if your enterprise application is deployed at a small mom-and-pop shop or is part of a multidomain enterprise infrastructure -- if your application collaborates with others, it must support Web services. In this article, the IBM Advanced Technology Solutions team gives you a thorough overview of the Apache Geronimo application server's Web services features and a demonstration of how these features can be used to create Web services-enabled enterprise applications. Follow along and find out how to implement and deploy Web services into a Geronimo application using the example, which uses an emulated banking scenario.
