Subject [jira] [Created] (JCR-2935) RepositoryAccessServlet fails to get jndi.name
Date Wed, 30 Mar 2011 18:08:05 GMT
RepositoryAccessServlet fails to get jndi.name

                 Key: JCR-2935
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-2935
             Project: Jackrabbit Content Repository
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: config, jackrabbit-webapp
    Affects Versions: 2.2.4
            Reporter: Gustavo Orair
            Priority: Trivial

The RepositoryAccessServlet provided in JackRabbit WebApp lookup for a repository.name instead
of jndi.name.
By default both variables has the same value, if the user doesn't customize WEB-INF/template/bootstrap.properties
or config/jackrabbit/boostrap.properties Jackrabbit works.

Otherwise, if the user customize bootstrap.properties causing jndi.name has a different value
compared to repository.name the servlet will register the JNDI perfectly but will fail to
lookup for the resource.

An example of a config/jackrabbit/bootstrap.properties that will fail is:
#bootstrap properties for the repository startup servlet.
#Wed Mar 30 12:35:24 BRT 2011

Note: jndi.name and repository.name has different values.

To fix this issue one should edit the getRepositoryByJNDI() function at http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jackrabbit/trunk/jackrabbit-webapp/src/main/java/org/apache/jackrabbit/j2ee/RepositoryAccessServlet.java.

     * Checks if the repository is available via JNDI and returns it.
     * @return the repository or <code>null</code>
     * @throws ServletException if this servlet is not properly configured.
    private Repository getRepositoryByJNDI() throws ServletException {
        BootstrapConfig config = getConfig();
        if (!config.getJndiConfig().isValid() || !config.getJndiConfig().enabled()) {
            return null;
        // acquire via JNDI
        String repositoryName = config.getRepositoryName();
        InitialContext ctx = getInitialContext();
        if (ctx == null) {
            return null;
        try {
            Repository r = (Repository) ctx.lookup(repositoryName);
            log.info("Acquired repository via JNDI.");
            return r;
        } catch (NamingException e) {
            log.error("Error while retrieving repository using JNDI (name={})", repositoryName,
            return null;

Change the line 
        String repositoryName = config.getRepositoryName();
        String repositoryName = config.getJndiConfig().getJndiName();
