| Configuring Email Notification – Apache James on Linux
Apache James is a Mail Server that is used to send emails from Linux , the scope of this section would be to send emails from BPM routed through Apache James
Download Apache James Server Binary (james-2.3.2) from http://james.apache.org/ and unzip the file to following directory /home/your-system-name/Oracle/
Start SOA BPM Server. check if sendmail is already running if yes , we need to kill the process or else we will not be able to start james ,
please do not get confused my system name is also james
[root@james fmw]# netstat -pant Active Internet connections (servers and established) Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:631 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 1250/cupsd tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:25 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 994/sendmail: accep [root@james fmw]# kill 994
Starting Apache James on Linux
[root@james bin]# ./run.sh Using PHOENIX_HOME: /home/james/Oracle/james-2.3.2 Using PHOENIX_TMPDIR: /home/james/Oracle/james-2.3.2/temp Using JAVA_HOME: /home/james/Oracle/jdk1.6.0_30/ Running Phoenix: Phoenix 4.2 James Mail Server 2.3.2 Remote Manager Service started plain:4555 POP3 Service started plain:110 SMTP Service started plain:25 NNTP Service started plain:119 FetchMail Disabled
| Adding users to James Mail Server and Configure Domain
[james@james james-2.3.2]$ telnet localhost 4555 Trying 127.0.0.1... Connected to localhost. Escape character is '^]'. JAMES Remote Administration Tool 2.3.2 Please enter your login and password Login id: root Password: root ( remember this is NOT your system root password ) Welcome root. HELP for a list of commands adduser jcooper welcome1 User jcooper added adduser jstein welcome1 User jstein added adduser cdoyle welcome1 User cdoyle added adduser wfaulk welcome1 User wfaulk added adduser jlondon welcome1 User jlondon added listusers Existing accounts 5 user: jstein user: jlondon user: wfaulk user: jcooper user: cdoyle quit Bye Connection closed by foreign host.
We will be using jamesbank.com as our domain name so this needs to be configured.
[root@james SAR-INF]# pwd /home/james/Oracle/james-2.3.2/apps/james/SAR-INF [root@james SAR-INF]# sudo gedit config.xml
Once config.xml is opened in the edit more add the following lines marked in bold
<servernames autodetect="true" autodetectIP="true"> <servername>localhost</servername> <servername>jamesbank.com</servername> <servername>james</servername> </servernames>
Add Entry to Host file
[root@james SAR-INF]# sudo gedit /etc/hosts 127.0.0.1 localhost james jamesbank.com
Now we are pretty much done on Linux side to make james working
| Configuring Enterprise Manager to Send EMails
Its assumed that you have already seeded Jcooper, Jstein , JLondon, Wfaulk, CDoyle and other users to the soa bpm user list if not have a quick look at this article.
login to EM (http://localhost:7001/em/) as weblogic , Select User Messaging Services -> User Messaging Email Driver , Map the following
Sender Address = email@example.com Default Sender Address = firstname.lastname@example.org Mail Access Protocol = POP3 Receive Folder = INBOX Outgoing Mail Server = jamesbank.com Outgoing Default Mail address = email@example.com Outgoing password = welcome1 (use clear text) Outgoing Mail Server port = 110 Incoming Mail Ids = firstname.lastname@example.org Incoming User Id = jcooper Incoming password = welcome1 (use clear text)
then click on Apply ,
Note you can replace jcooper and wfaulk with any generic name such as BpelAdmin or SoaAdmin or Notification Services @jamesbank.com as you wish
Select farm_fmw_domain -> SOA -> soa_infra -> SOA Administration -> Workflow Config -> Workflow Notification properties , set from, reply to and actionable address
| Install and configure thunderbird for email@example.com
[root@james SAR-INF]# yum install thunderbird
this will install thunderbird , launch the mail client and add account
Account Name = firstname.lastname@example.org Email Address = email@example.com Your Name = jcooper Server Name = jamesbank.com Port = 110 user name = jcooper connection security = none Authentication Method = Password transmitted insecurely Outgoing server = SMTP Server Name = jamesbank.com Port = 25 username = jcooper password = welcome1
| Wiring Notification a BPM Process
To test email let us create a simple Synchronous BPM process, Drag and Drop Notification between start and end , deploy the application and test it.
Now once the process is completed we should be able to see the test mail,
Note it is recommended that you have a generic process that can take input parameters as TO Email Id, From Email Id, Subject and Body , then this can re-used across many different processes
