29 Managing Oracle User Messaging Service

This chapter describes how to deploy Oracle User Messaging Service (UMS) drivers by using Oracle WebLogic Scripting Tool (WLST), Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control, Oracle Fusion Middleware Configuration Wizard, and the wsadmin utility of IBM WebSphere Application Server. It also describes how to undeploy and register Oracle UMS drivers.

This chapter includes the following sections:

29.1 Deploying Drivers

When you install Oracle UMS, preinstalled drivers are included (Email, XMPP, SMPP, and VoiceXML). Among these drivers, only the Email driver is deployed to the WebLogic Server. To deploy other drivers, target that driver to the WebLogic Server (using Oracle WebLogic Server Administration Console, or you can target the drivers when creating or extending the domain using the Oracle Fusion Middleware Configuration Wizard).

The Worklist driver must be deployed to a SOA Server to make use of the UMS integration with Worklist. Because this integration involves multiple JEE applications and a SOA composite, there is a special extension template you must use to enable this feature in one step. See Install the Worklist Driver on the Oracle WebLogic Server Platform and Install the Worklist Driver on IBM WebSphere Platform for more information.

You can deploy additional drivers in a variety of ways using: WLST commands (recommended), wsadmin tool, Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control, and through the Oracle Fusion Middleware Configuration Wizard.

The section includes the following topics:

Note:

To deploy two or more driver instances of a particular driver EAR, you must use the custom deployment plan templates available at $ORACLE_HOME/communications/plans. Deploying drivers using WLST commands is recommended because these commands automatically modify your deployment plans for you; using other methods requires you to manually modify your deployment plans.

29.1.1 Deploying Drivers Using WLST Commands

You can deploy drivers using the WLST command deployUserMessagingDriver.

29.1.1.1 deployUserMessagingDriver

Command Category: UMS

Use with WLST: Online

29.1.1.1.1 Description

deployUserMessagingDriver is used to deploy additional instances of user messaging drivers.Specify a base driver type (for example: email, xmpp, voicexml, and others) and a short name for the new driver deployment. The string usermessagingdriver- is prepended to the specified application name. Any valid parameters for the deploy command can be specified, and is passed through when the driver is deployed.

29.1.1.1.2 Syntax
deployUserMessagingDriver(baseDriver, appName, [targets],
[stageMode], [options])
Argument Definition

baseDriver

options

Optional. Additional arguments that are valid for the deploy command can be specified and passed through when the new driver is deployed.


29.1.1.1.3 Examples

To deploy a second instance of an email driver with name myEmail.

wls:/base_domain/serverConfig> deployUserMessagingDriver(baseDriver='email',
appName='myEmail')

To deploy a second instance of an email driver, specifying deployment targets.

wls:/base_domain/serverConfig> deployUserMessagingDriver(baseDriver='email',
appName='email2', targets='server1,server2')

29.1.2 Deploying Drivers Using Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control

To deploy drivers using Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control:

  1. Retrieve a deployment template (for example: ORACLE_HOME/communications/plans)

  2. Copy the plan to a location of your choice (to the same directory or any other directory).

  3. Edit the plan:

    Replace DriverDeploymentName with whichever name you want to use (ensure you replace all instances of the name).

    Replace DriverShortName with any name you like.

    Replace the @RunAsPrincipalName@ token with a valid principal for use by UMS. In a default deployment, the system principal OracleSystemUser is available for this purpose.

  4. Start Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control.

  5. Enter the location of the .ear file.

29.1.3 Deploying Drivers Using the Oracle Fusion Middleware Configuration Wizard

To install the SMPP, XMPP, and VoiceXML drivers, extend the domain using the extension template available at $ORACLE_HOME/common/templates/applications/oracle.ums.drivers_template_11.1.1.jar.To extend a domain using Oracle Fusion Middleware Configuration Wizard:

  1. Launch Oracle Fusion Middleware Configuration Wizard ($ORACLE_HOME/common/bin/config.sh or %ORACLE_HOME%\common\bin\config.cmd).

  2. Select the Extend an existing WebLogic domain option.

  3. Select the desired domain directory containing UMS.

  4. Select the Extend my domain using an existing extension template option.

  5. Click Browse, and navigate to $ORACLE_HOME/common/templates/applications

  6. Select oracle.ums.drivers_template_11.1.1.jar.

  7. Complete the remaining steps of the Oracle Fusion Middleware Configuration Wizard, and remember to target the required drivers to the desired Oracle WebLogic Servers, clusters, or both.

  8. Restart the appropriate Oracle WebLogic Servers.

29.1.4 Deploying Drivers Using the wsadmin Tool

You can deploy additional instances of UMS drivers by using the Oracle Fusion Middleware-specific wsadmin command OracleUMS.deployUserMessagingDriver.

29.1.4.1 About the wsadmin OracleUMS.deployUserMessagingDriver Command

This section describes the syntax and arguments for the wsadmin OracleUMS.deployUserMessagingDriver command.

29.1.4.1.1 Description

OracleUMS.deployUserMessagingDriver is used to deploy additional instances of user messaging drivers.

Specify a base driver type (email, xmpp, smpp, voicexml, proxy, or worklist) and a short name for the new driver deployment. The string "usermessagingdriver-" is prepended to the specified application name.

29.1.4.1.2 Syntax
OracleUMS.deployUserMessagingDriver(baseDriver, appName, required_options)
Argument Definition

baseDriver

Specifies the base messaging driver type.

Must be a known driver type, such as email, proxy, smpp, voicexml, 'proxy', or 'worklist'.

appName

A short descriptive name for the new deployment. The specified value is prepended with the string usermessagingdriver-.

required_options

Additional arguments that are valid for the "AdminApp.install" command.

These options are mandatory for this command:

-node, -cell, -server, -usedefaultbindings, and -defaultbinding.virtual.host


Example:

OracleUMS.deployUserMessagingDriver('email', 'myEmail', '-node myNode -cell myCell
 -server myServer -usedefaultbindings -defaultbinding.virtual.host default_host')

where:

email and myEmail represent values for the baseDriver and appName arguments respectively.

-node, -cell, -server, -usedefaultbindings, -defaultbinding.virtual.host are the required options. myNode, myCell, myServer and default_host represent the values of respective options.

29.1.4.1.3 Examples

To deploy a second instance of an email driver with name "smpp2" on a SOA Server named "soa_server1":

wsadmin> OracleUMS.deployUserMessagingDriver('smpp','smpp2','-node DefaultNode01
 -cell DefaultCell01 -server soa_server1 -usedefaultbindings
 -defaultbinding.virtual.host default_host')

To deploy a second instance of an email driver with name "email2" on a BAM Server named "bam_server1":

wsadmin> OracleUMS.deployUserMessagingDriver('email','email2','-node DefaultNode01
 -cell DefaultCell01 -server bam_server1 -usedefaultbindings
 -defaultbinding.virtual.host default_host')

29.1.4.2 Deploying an Additional Driver

To deploy the UMS drivers by using the wsadmin tool, do the following:

  1. Open a browser and enter the following URL to access the IBM WebSphere Administrative Console (also known as IBM WebSphere Integrated Solutions Console):

    https://hostname:SSL Port/ibm/console
    
  2. Log in to the administration console by using the administrator name and password.

  3. Navigate to System administration > Deployment manager > Configuration > Ports > BOOTSTRAP_ADDRESS and identify the corresponding port number.

    Description of ns_wsadmin.gif follows
    Description of the illustration ns_wsadmin.gif

  4. On the system where Oracle SOA server is running, set the ORACLE_HOME environment variable to the location where Oracle Fusion Middleware SOA component is installed. You should set this variable before running the wsadmin command.

    For example,

    On UNIX platform, run the following command in the UNIX shell:

    $ export ORACLE_HOME=/fmwwas-nd/middleware/Oracle_SOA1
    

    On Windows platform, run the following command in the DOS shell:

    C:\> set ORACLE_HOME=C:\fmwwas-nd\middleware\Oracle_SOA1
    
  5. From the ORACLE_HOME\common\bin folder, run the wsadmin command. Specify the RMI port number (see Step 2) as the value for the -port option.

    On UNIX:

    ORACLE_HOME/common/bin/wsadmin.sh 
          -profileName profilename
          -connType RMI
          -host hostname
          -port RMI_port
          -user admin_user
          -password admin_password
    

    On Windows:

    ORACLE_HOME\common\bin\wsadmin.cmd 
          -profileName profilename
          -connType RMI
          -host hostname
          -port RMI_port
          -user admin_user
          -password admin_password
    
  6. To view the list of enterprise applications and drivers that are already deployed, run the wsadmin command as follows:

    wsadmin>print AdminApp.list()
        DMS Application_11.1.1.1.0
        DefaultToDoTaskFlow
        Dmgr DMS Application_11.1.1.1.0
        FMW Welcome Page Application_11.1.0.0.0
        User Messaging Parlay X Sample App
        composer
        em
        oracle-bam
        soa-infra
        usermessagingdriver-email
        usermessagingdriver-smpp
        usermessagingdriver-voicexml
        usermessagingdriver-xmpp
        usermessagingserver
        worklistapp
        wsil-nonwls
        wsm-pm 
    
  7. Run the OracleUMS.deployUserMessagingDriver command to deploy the UMS driver(s) as follows:

    wsadmin> OracleUMS.deployUserMessagingDriver('email','email01','-node
    DefaultNode01 -cell DefaultCell01 -server soa_server1 -usedefaultbindings
    -defaultbinding.virtual.host default_host')
     
    
  8. To verify that the newly deployed UMS driver(s) is listed along with the rest of enterprise applications and drivers, run the following command:

    wsadmin>print AdminApp.list()
    DMS Application_11.1.1.1.0
        DefaultToDoTaskFlow
        Dmgr DMS Application_11.1.1.1.0
        FMW Welcome Page Application_11.1.0.0.0
        User Messaging Parlay X Sample App
        composer
        em
        oracle-bam
        soa-infra
        usermessagingdriver-email
        usermessagingdriver-email-email01
        usermessagingdriver-smp
        usermessagingdriver-voicexml
        usermessagingdriver-xmpp
        usermessagingserver
        worklistapp
        wsil-nonwls
        wsm-pm 
    

    Make sure that the newly deployed UMS drivers(s) is listed. In the above example, usermessagingdriver-email-email01 is the new driver.

29.2 Undeploying and Unregistering Drivers

Since Messaging Drivers are standard JEE applications, they can be undeployed from the Oracle WebLogic Server using standard Oracle WebLogic tools such as the Administration Console or WLST.

However, since the UMS server keeps track of the messaging drivers that have been registered with it in a persistent store (database), this registration must be cleaned in a separate step using a runtime MBean exposed by the UMS server. The procedure to do this from Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control is as follows.

To undeploy and unregister drivers:

  1. Ensure the UMS server is available.

  2. In Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control, select any usermessagingserver target in the domain.

  3. From the target's menu, select System MBean Browser.

  4. In System MBean Browser, locate the ComponentAdministration MBean of usermessagingserver:

    Expand the folder com.oracle.sdp.messaging > Server (such as Server: soa_server1) > SDPMessagingrun time > ComponentAdministration.

  5. Invoke the operation listDriverInstances.

    1. Click the Operations tab.

    2. Click the operation listDriverInstances.

    3. Click Invoke.

    4. Identify and copy the name of the driver you want to unregister. (for example: /Farm_soa_bam_domain/soa_bam_domain/soa_server1/usermessagingdriver-email:oracle_sdpmessagingdriver_email#Email-Driver)

    list driver in EM
    Description of the illustration ns_listdriver.gif

  6. Click Return.

  7. Invoke the operation unregisterDriverInstance with the desired driver name.

    1. Click the operation unregisterDriverInstance.

    2. Paste the driver name in the Value field (for example: /Farm_soa_bam_domain/soa_bam_domain/soa_server1/usermessagingdriver-email:oracle_sdpmessagingdriver_email#Email-Driver).

    3. Click Invoke.

    Description of ns_unregisdriver.gif follows
    Description of the illustration ns_unregisdriver.gif

  8. Check the confirmation dialog for success.

This completes the unregistration of the specified driver from the UMS server and it is no longer used in future message delivery.
