Send email with Seam 3 Mail and JMS

Seam 3 Mail module provides simple API to use Java Mail API to send email message.

Basic Configuration

Assume you have already created a Maven based Java EE 6 application.

Add seam mail dependency to your pom.xml file.

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.jboss.seam.mail</groupId>
    <artifactId>seam-mail-api</artifactId>
    <scope>compile</scope>
</dependency>
<dependency>
    <groupId>org.jboss.seam.mail</groupId>
    <artifactId>seam-mail</artifactId>
    <scope>compile</scope>
</dependency>

Add basic mail configuration in your META-INF/seam-beans.xml.

<mail:MailConfig serverHost="smtp.gmail.com"
    serverPort="587" 
    auth="true" 
    enableTls="true" 
    username="<your gmail account>"
    password="<your password>">
    <ee:modifies />
</mail:MailConfig>

In your Java codes, inject MailMessage and Session.

@Inject
private transient Instance<MailMessage> mailMessage;

@Inject
private transient Instance<Session> session;

MailMessage is provided by Seam3 module, it is a fluid API to build message object and send message. Session is from the standard Java Mail API.

MailMessage msg = mailMessage.get();
msg.subject("test subject")
    .from("test@test.com")
    .to("user@test.com")
    .send();

Everything works well.

But if you try to send an email from jsf pages, the page will be blocked when the email is being sent.

EJB 3.1 provides a simple way to execute asynchronous action. You can simply create a @Stateless EJB and put the logic in a @Asynchronous method. But unfortunately when you try to use @Asynchronous and CDI together, it does not work.

JMS provides standard asynchronous processing capability for Java EE, Seam3 also includes a JMS module.

Send email asynchronously with JMS

Seam 3 also provides a JMS module which simplify JMS and CDI integration, we can utilize JMS to process the asynchronous work.

Configure the JMS connection factory in your META-INF/seam-beans.xml.

<jmsi:JmsConnectionFactoryProducer>
    <ee:modifies />
    <jmsi:connectionFactoryJNDILocation>
        java:/ConnectionFactory
    </jmsi:connectionFactoryJNDILocation>
</jmsi:JmsConnectionFactoryProducer>

Create a standard JMS listener to handle JMS message.

@MessageDriven(....)
public class MailProcessorMDB extends MessageListener {

    @EJB MailProcessor processor;

    public void send()...//

    @Override
    protected void onMessage(Message _msg) throws JMSException {
        if (log.isDebugEnabled()) {
            log.debug("call handleMessage...");
        }

        ObjectMessage objMessage = (ObjectMessage) _msg;
        EmailMessage mailMessage = (EmailMessage) objMessage.getObject();
        processor.send(mailMessage);
    }
}

MailProcessor is a @Stateless EJB which is use for sending mail.

When a message is arrived, the listener will call MailProcessor to process email.

Use an interface to observe the CDI event and route it to the JMS queue.

@Outbound
public void mapStatusToQueue(@Observes @NoneBlocking EmailMessage message,
        @JmsDestination(jndiName = "java:/queue/test") Queue q);

In the presentation layer, fire an event directly. The event object will be routed as the payload of JMS message automatically.

messageEventSrc.fire(message);

Run the project

I assume you have installed the latest Oracle JDK 7, JBoss AS 7.1.1.Final and Apache Maven 3.0.4.

  1. Check out the complete codes from github.com.

    git clone git://github.com/hantsy/seam3-mail-demo.git
    
  2. Start JBoss AS with standalone full profile which includes JMS support.

    <JBOSS_HOME>\bin\standalone.bat --server-config=standalone-full.xml
    
  3. Deploy the application into the running JBoss AS.

    mvn clean package jboss-as:deploy
    
  4. Open your browser and go to http://localhost:8080/seam3-mail-demo.

JPA 2.1: Attribute Converter

JPA 2.1: Attribute Converter If you are using Hibernate, and want a customized type is supported in your Entity class, you could have to write a custom Hibernate Type. JPA 2.1 brings a new feature named attribute converter, which can help you convert your custom class type to JPA supported type. Create an Entity Reuse thePostentity class as example. @Entity @Table(name="POSTS") public class Post implements Serializable { private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L; @Id @GeneratedValue(strategy = GenerationType.AUTO) @Column(name="ID") private Long id; @Column(name="TITLE") private String title; @Column(name="BODY") private String body; @Temporal(javax.persistence.TemporalType.DATE) @Column(name="CREATED") private Date created; @Column(name="TAGS") private List<String> tags=new ArrayList<>(); } Create an attribute converter In this example…

Auditing with Hibernate Envers

Auditing with Hibernate Envers The approaches provided in JPA lifecyle hook and Spring Data auditing only track the creation and last modification info of an Entity, but all the modification history are not tracked. Hibernate Envers fills the blank table. Since Hibernate 3.5, Envers is part of Hibernate core project. Configuration Configure Hibernate Envers in your project is very simple, just need to addhibernate-enversas project dependency. <dependency> <groupId>org.hibernate</groupId> <artifactId>hibernate-envers</artifactId> </dependency> Done. No need extra Event listeners configuration as the early version. Basic Usage Hibernate Envers provides a simple@Auditedannotation, you can place it on an Entity class or property of an Entity. @Audited private String description; If@Auditedannotation is placed on a property, this property can be tracked.

Spring Data Mongo: bridge MongoDB and Spring

Spring Data Mongo: bridge MongoDB and SpringMongoDBis one of the most popular NoSQL products, Spring Data Mongo(Maven archetype id is spring-data-mongodb) tries to provides a simple approach to access MongoDB. Configuration Add the following code fragments in your Spring configuration. <!-- Mongo config --> <mongo:db-factory id="mongoDbFactory" host="localhost" port="27017" dbname="conference-db" /> <bean id="mongoTemplate" class="org.springframework.data.mongodb.core.MongoTemplate"> <constructor-arg ref="mongoDbFactory" /> </bean> <mongo:repositories base-package="com.hantsylabs.example.spring.mongo" /> Firstly, declare aDbFactorywhich is responsible for connecting to the MongoDB server. Then, register theMongoTemplateobject which envelop the data operations on MongoDB. Lastly addmongo:repositorieswith an essentialbase-packageattribute, Spring will discovery your d…
