Domino & REST: Accessing Domino’s Environment / Check Authentication

Sven Hasselbach    

If we want to access Domino’s Environment, it is the ContextInfo class which gives us all we need. Everything you need to do to use the class is described in an earlier blog post.

The class gives mainly access to the following methods:

Method Description
getDataDirectory() Path to notes data directory
getEnvironmentString(String envName) Returns the environment variable
getServerDatabase() The actual database as NAPI object, if any
getServerVariable(String varName) Variables from the Request, i.e. „QUERY_STRING“
getUserDatabase() The actual database as Domino Java object, if any
getUserSession() The session of the actual user performing the request (
isAnonymous() true if the current user is Anonymous

Keep in mind that the incoming request is independently of any underlying Notes database. In our example, the URI http://your.server/dominorestservlet/helloworld/ does not run inside of a NSF, that’s why the getServerDatabase() and the getUserDatabase() methods returns null.

As a consequence, our servlet does not have any access restriction and is reachable as anonymous. If you want to access a database programatically, the „normal“ Domino access control is intervening again, but we can do the access check by ourself.

To prevent the access to the servlet, I have added a „checkAuthentication“ method to the RestApiServlet class. This method checks if the current user is a) not anonymous and b) a member of the group RESTAPIAccessAllowed. The method throws a NotAuthenticatedException which let’s the servlet return a HTTP 403.

Re: Domino REST performance analysis

I have created a Quick-n-Dirty performance test for Csaba’s „10K record test“: Loading time 200 ms overall, 60 ms TTFB. Do you want to know how this works? Feel free to come to SNoUG next week or to Rudi’s EntwicklerCamp and join my sessions.

Domino & Java 1.8: Thank you, IBM!
Tue, Mar 14th 2017 1:16p   Sven Hasselbach
For years it was a lot of pain when developing for the Domino platform using Java 1.6 only. But now, Java 1.8 is available, and this allows to use the latest versions for a lot of libraries and development tools. After installing FP8 to the Client, Eclipse allowes to use the Domino JRE in a JavaSE-1.8 environment: This gives access to the latest M2Eclipse plugin (1.7.0). The old version problem when running with JRE 1.6… … is solved: Eclipse Updates? No problem, just do it! Latest

Domin & REST: Debug your Plugin
Tue, Mar 7th 2017 11:14a   Sven Hasselbach
When developing OSGi Plugins, you should have your own development server running on your local machine. Not only because of the faster deployment of changes (a new version of a plugin must always deployed with a HTTP restart), but because of the Java debugging posibilities: Only one Eclipse instance can connect to the JVM, and every request processed by the server will start the debugger. If multiple users a accessing the server while you are debugging, your Eclipse will try to debug every inco

Domino & REST: More about Jackson
Fri, Mar 3rd 2017 10:16a   Sven Hasselbach
When creating a REST API servlet, Jackson provides a huge list of possibilities to manipulate the JSON data, mostly using annotations. Let’s demonstrate some of them with this little class, which has only two properties: public class Demo { private String foo; private String bar; public String getFoo() { return foo; } public void setFoo(String foo) { this.foo = foo; } public String getBar() { return bar; } public void setBar(String bar) { this.bar = ba

Domino & REST: Consuming JSON
Wed, Mar 1st 2017 7:25a   Sven Hasselbach
Consuming JSON is as easy as pie: Just create a new method to the RestApiServlet,  add a @POST annotation, and declare the object you want to the parameters of the method:     @POST     @Path("/helloworld/")     @Consumes(MediaType.APPLICATION_JSON)     public Response postHelloWorld(HelloWorld helloWorld) {         return Response.ok(helloWorld, MediaType.APPLICATION_JSON).build();     } In this example we are using the same URI „/helloworld/„; because

Domino & REST: A basic Servlet
Tue, Feb 28th 2017 1:49p   Sven Hasselbach
To have a good starting point when creating RESTful applications on top of Domino, I have created a „Hello World“ example of a JEE Application, based on Apache Wink & Jackson 2.5.0. The Jackson AnnotaionProcessor is registered into Apache Wink application and is enabled by default, the JAXB processor is also included as the secondary AnnotationProcessor. The benefit of this is that only one global ObjectMapper instance is created and is reused, wich allows a better performance as

Domino & REST: Listeners for Initialization & Destroying of a Servlet
Mon, Feb 27th 2017 9:15a   Sven Hasselbach
If you need to know when your Servlet is initialized or destroyed, you can use a ServletContextListener in your application. First, create the class AppServletContextListener and implement the javax.servlet.ServletContextListener interface. This provides two methods for capturing the events: contextInitialized and contextDestroyed: package ch.hasselba.servlet; import javax.servlet.ServletContextEvent; import javax.servlet.ServletContextListener; public class AppServletContextListener

Jackson: Skip Objects conditionally
Wed, Feb 8th 2017 7:51a   Sven Hasselbach
I had a simple problem when implementing this brilliant solution in one of my REST applications: As soon I was using @JsonAnyGetter / @JsonAnySetter and the HidableSerializer together, a NPE was thrown during serialization. The Problem occured in Jackson 1.9.13 and even 2.5.0, the latest version usable with the actual Domino JVM. Stack Trace org.codehaus.jackson.map.JsonMappingException: (was java.lang.NullPointerException) (through reference chain: ch.hasselba.Test["[anySetter]"]) null

Dieses Jahr spreche ich wieder auf dem Entwicklercamp, und halte neben den Vorträgen auch noch eine Hands-On Session: Track 1 – Session 2: XPages erweitern und ausbauen – Ausgabe 2017 Im Laufe des Jahres 2016 kamen einige Themen hinzu, und dank FP8 wird es wohl auch einige Neuerungen geben, über die man mal reden müsste… Track 4 – Session 3: High-Performance REST Applications Hochperformante REST Schnittstellen entwickeln, die auf dem Domino Server laufen?
