Introducing ‘adm4EE’: Manage Java EE Application Servers

Today I would like to announce a new project I have started at bitbucketadm4EE

I want to create a JavaFX  based management tool to ease the daily business of Java EE Application Server admins.

“A tool to manage App Servers? What about the already existing admin consoles?”

The aim is to keep the UI as simple as possible and hide complexity, even if the backend functions are very powerful and to provide easy access to:  monitoring the state of domains and applications and basic configurations like JDBC-pools, service ports, change admin password, etc.:

MainView

Currently implemented features:

Domain

  • Setup new domain according to domain template folder with support for JavaScript based setup script (Nashorn) via command line
  • Configure the domain
  • Start the domain
  • Stop the domain
  • Check if a domain is up and running
  • Restart the domain automatically in case of failure

EE Applications

  • Check application version against remote update server
  • Update application with new version from remote update server (support for update script)

JDBC Pool

  • Reconfigure JDBC Pool settings: Username, Password, URL, Ping JDBC Pools

Misc

  • Configure Service Ports (e.g. for HTTP listener, admin listener,…) with PortBase/PortOffset support
  • Command Line Interface for usage during scripted installation procedure
  • Settings are stored in a config-File (e.g. URL for Online-Updates, preferred Ports, …)
  • Change admin password
  • Show and save server log file
  • By now only GlassFish is supported, but prepared for other JavaEE-Servers (e.g. WildFly)

Have I already mentioned how much  I like the native packaging target?
