Adding a New Link to a Commerce Pipeline

To add new links to a commerce pipeline you need to override the default definition for the appropriate commerce pipeline.  Commerce pipelines are defined in XML so you use ATG’s XML combining feature to accomplish this.

For example if you want to add a new link to the ProcessOrder chain in the /atg/commerce/commercepipeline.xml you would create the following commercepipeline.xml in your local config.

<pipelinechain name="processOrder" xml-combine="append">
<pipelinelink transaction="TX_MANDATORY" name="authorizePayment" xml-combine="replace">
<processor jndi="/atg/commerce/order/processor/AuthorizePayment" />
<transition returnvalue="1" link="updateInventory" />
<pipelinelink name="updateInventory" transaction="TX_MANDATORY">
<processor jndi="/betweengo/commerce/inventory/processor/ProcUpdateInventory" />
<transition returnvalue="1" link="updateGiftRepository" />

In this example we added the new updateInventory link which is inserted between the authorizePayment and updateGiftRepository links.

Configuring JBoss for HTTPS

Keys 1 by ~Brenda-Starr~

This is how I configured JBoss to handle HTTPS requests for secure ATG applications.

  1. Create the keystore and private key.
    $ cd /opt/jboss/jboss-eap-4.3/jboss-as/server/atg/conf
    $ keytool -genkey -alias jbosskey -keyalg RSA -keystore server.keystore
  2. Generate and store the certificate.
    $ keytool -export -alias jbosskey -file server.crt -keystore server.keystore
    $ keytool -import -alias jbosscert -file server.crt -keystore server.keystore
  3. Enable HTTPS.
    $ vi /opt/jboss/jboss-eap-4.3/jboss-as/server/atg/deploy/jboss-web.deployer/server.xml

    Uncomment SSL HTTP/1.1 Connector section and edit. For example:

        <Connector port="8443" address="${jboss.bind.address}"
                   protocol="HTTP/1.1" SSLEnabled="true"
                   maxThreads="150" scheme="https" secure="true"
                   clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS"
                   keystorePass="letmein" />
  4. Start JBoss with keystore specified. On UNIX you can do this by updating run.conf. For example:
    JAVA_OPTS="-Xms128m -Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=128m -Dsun.rmi.dgc.client.gcInterval=3600000 -Dsun.rmi.dgc.server.gcInterval=3600000 -Dsun.lang.ClassLoader.allowArraySyntax=true"

Note that if you are using service bindings (i.e. uncommented service bindings section of conf/jboss-service.xml) then the bindings in the XML configuration file (e.g. sample-bindings.xml) will take precedence. In this case the secure port becomes 8543.
