Sun Java System Portal Server 7.1 Technical Reference

Installing and Configuring Portal Server:JESMF Integration

In JES 5, the installation and configuration of Portal Server:JESMF integration occurs by default. If you need to upgrade the system to JES 5, then you require to install and configure. This section explains about how you can install and configure Portal Server:JESMF Integration.

PS:JESMF Integration depends on three JES shared components:

These shared components are part of JES 5. JES 4 supported earlier versions such as Jdmk5.1, Cacao1.1, and JESMF1.0. Use these components if you use JES 4. While upgrade, you need to first upgrade the shared components to JES 5 and then enable Portal Server:JESMF Integration.

For upgrade or migration, when Cacao2.0 or JESMF2.0 is not installed, then Portal Server:JESMF Integration should be disabled. This means that no configuration should happen for Portal Server:JESMF Integration.

    These are high level requirements to configure Portal Server:JESMF Integration:

  1. Copy /opt/SUNWportal/template/jesmf/ to /tmp, and change the following tokens:

    • %ps.product.location%


    • %ps.install.datetime%

  2. Register JESMF 2.0 module using from <baseDir>/template/jesmf/ Following tokens should be replaced with correct values at config time in this file:

  3. InstallLocation should be set to install directory of portal. For example, on Solaris with default install location as /opt.

  4. InstalledDate should be set to current system time of configuration. For example, System.currentTimeMillis() value should be dumped as token value.

    Note –

    You need to use “<jesmfInstallDir>/bin/mfwksetup -r <>” to register Portal Server:JESMF common agent container module. This should happen only for the first instance for any portal getting created on this Operating System (OS) node. There is only one Portal Server:JESMF common agent container 2.0 module on one OS node.

  5. Check the web containers configuration to see if this jar (and jdmkrt.jar) is present in the server classpath. If it is not present, add it to web containers server classpath.

  6. Copy to /var/opt/SUNWportal/portals/<portalid>config/<instanceId> form <baseDir>/template/jesmf/

  7. In the file, replace the %PS_DIR% token with install location. For example, /opt/SUNWportal on Solaris.

The Portal Server:JESMF Integration unconfiguration happens when a portal server instance is deleted from an OS-node. These are high level requirements to unconfigure Portal Server:JESMF Integration:
