This example demonstrates sending email with the use of CDI 1.0 and JSF 2.0 in Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform.
The example uses the default Mail provider that comes out of the box with JBoss EAP. It uses your local mail relay and the default SMTP port of 25.
The configuration of the mail provider is found in the
JBOSS_HOME/standalone/configuration/standalone.xml if you are running a standalone server or in the
JBOSS_HOME/domain/configuration/domain.xml file if you are running in a managed domain. An example of the mail subsystem XML configuration is provided below:
<subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:mail:1.0"> <mail-session jndi-name="java:jboss/mail/Default" > <smtp-server address="localhost" port="25"/> </mail-session> <mail-session jndi-name="java:/MyOtherMail"> <smtp-server address="localhost" port="9999"> <login name="nobody" password="pass"/> </smtp-server> <pop3-server address="example.com" port="1234"/> <imap-server address="example.com" port="432"> <login name="nobody" password="pass"/> </imap-server> </mail-session> </subsystem>
The example is a web application that takes
Message Body input and sends mail to that address. The front end is a JSF page with a simple POJO backing, leveraging CDI for resource injection.
The application this project produces is designed to be run on Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.1 or later.
All you need to build this project is Java 6.0 (Java SDK 1.6) or later, Maven 3.0 or later.
If you have not yet done so, you must Configure Maven before testing the quickstarts.
The following shows the command line to start the server:
For Linux: JBOSS_HOME/bin/standalone.sh For Windows: JBOSS_HOME\bin\standalone.bat
NOTE: The following build command assumes you have configured your Maven user settings. If you have not, you must include Maven setting arguments on the command line. See Build and Deploy the Quickstarts for complete instructions and additional options.
Type this command to build and deploy the archive:
mvn clean install jboss-as:deploy
target/jboss-mail.warto the running instance of the server.
The application will be running at the following URL: http://localhost:8080/jboss-mail.
When you are finished testing, type this command to undeploy the archive:
You can also start the server and deploy the quickstarts from Eclipse using JBoss tools. For more information, see Use JBoss Developer Studio or Eclipse to Run the Quickstarts
If you want to debug the source code or look at the Javadocs of any library in the project, run either of the following commands to pull them into your local repository. The IDE should then detect them.
mvn dependency:sources mvn dependency:resolve -Dclassifier=javadoc
