GShell Commands Structure

Build-in commands like set, clean, help, quit and so on are defined in gshell-builtin project
Geronimo commands like start-server,stop-server adn deploy commands like start-module are defined in geronimo-commands project.
Jaxws commands  are defined in  geronimo-jaxws-builder project.
Remote commands are defined in gshell-remote-client project.

GShell Startup progress 

1 org.codehaus.plexus.ClassLoader load every jar defined in etc/gsh-classworlds.conf
2 org.apache.geronimo.gshell.plugin.CommandDiscoverer load the commands.xml in gshell-builtin.jar/META-INF/gshell
3 All the commands register in org.apache.geronimo.gshell.registry..CommandRegistry.
4 The same process for geronimo-commands and jaws-commands
5 org.apache.geronimo.gshell.layout.loader.XMLLayoutLoader load the layout.xml in etc/layout.xml
6 GShell start up DefaultLayoutManager.
7 GShell start up org.apache.geronimo.gshell.DefaultCommandLineBuilder and DefaultCommandExecutor
8 Gshell read argument from console and read history from Document and Setting/[username]/.gshell/gshell.history
9 Finish initialization and waiting


Command.xml shows reflection between command id and command implementation

Layout.xml shows reflection between command line string and command id

GShell process command line progress

1 org.apache.geronimo.gshell.console.JLineConsole get a command line from console
2 org.apache.geronimo.gshell.DefaultCommandLineBuilder parse the command line and check if it has a syntax error
3 org.apache.geronimo.gshell.layout.DefaultLayoutManager find corresponding command id and give to org.apache.geronimo.gshell.DefaultCommandExecutor .
4org.apache.geronimo.gshell.DefaultCommandExecutor  call  A certain command execute the doExecute() method.
5 org.apache.geronimo.gshell.clp.CommandLineProcessor process the arguements.

Define your own command

1 Define command class

In geronimo/framework/modules/geronimo-commands projects, you can define your own command class in src folder.
Note all the command classes  are defined in groovy.

package org.apache.geronimo.commands
import org.apache.geronimo.gshell.command.annotation.CommandComponent

  * Test
@CommandComponent(id='geronimo-commands:test', description="Test")
class TestCommand extends ConnectCommand {
    @Option(name='-a', aliases=['--argument'], description='Arguement test')
    int argu = 1;   
    protected Object doExecute() throws Exception {
        print "Hello World!"   

Compile source codes and put the target jar file in the same directory in binary server file.

2 Modify configuration file

Modify file layout.xml in [server dir]/etc

<!-- Geronimo -->

3 restart gshell

You can find test command in help list and use test to see print line.

Details in Geronimo-commands(Client)

Geronimo command part:

Basically, Geronimo stop and wait for server commands connect to remote/local server via jmx connections and get a MBeanServerConnection.Through MBeanServerConnection command get Kernel as Mbean and call invoke() method to shutdown or getAttribute.

Deploy command part

Geronimo-deploy-tool-> ServerConnection->GeronimoDeploymentManager

Build JMX Server progress

Key codes

in JMXConnector in geronimo-jmx-remoting project

public void doStart() throws Exception {
        jmxServiceURL = new JMXServiceURL(protocol, host, port, urlPath);
        Authenticator authenticator = null;
        Map env = new HashMap();
        if (applicationConfigName != null) {
            authenticator = new Authenticator(applicationConfigName, classLoader);
            env.put(JMXConnectorServer.AUTHENTICATOR, authenticator);
        } else {
            log.warn("Starting unauthenticating JMXConnector for " + jmxServiceURL);
        }        RMIServerSocketFactory serverSocketFactory = new GeronimoRMIServerSocketFactory(host);
        env.put(RMIConnectorServer.RMI_SERVER_SOCKET_FACTORY_ATTRIBUTE, serverSocketFactory);
        server = JMXConnectorServerFactory.newJMXConnectorServer(jmxServiceURL, env, mbeanServer);
        NotificationFilterSupport filter = new NotificationFilterSupport();
        server.addNotificationListener(authenticator, filter, null);
        log.debug("Started JMXConnector " + server.getAddress());
