If you do not want to hard-code your file upload servlet with the @MultipartConfig annotation but would rather add it to your <servlet> configuration element in web.xml, following is the syntax (add this as a child element of <servlet>):
</multipart-config>→ Continue reading “Adding MultipartConfig Configuration to web.xml in JBoss 6.x for a Servlet 3.0 File Upload Servlet”
This one requires a bit of explaination.
When writing a Servlet that will enable users to upload files from a form you need to be able to limit both the size of the file(s) and the entire multipart/form-data request. The Servlet 3.0 spec now includes a @MultipartConfig annotation (which can also be specified in web.xml, see other post in this blog).
Based on the Servlet 3.0 spec here is what is supposed to happen.
- The user submits a multi-part

The following is a tutorial on how to create a empty file on the filesystem:
// Destination directory
File destinationDir = new File(“/some/path”);
// The ‘touched’ file
File doneFile = new File(destinationDir, “some_file_name”);
// The JVM will only ‘touch’ the file if you instantiate a
// FileOutputStream instance for the file in question.
// You don’t actually write any data to the file through
// the FileOutputStream. Just instantiate it and close it.
FileOutputStream doneFOS = null;

When I attempted to install the Web Developer Add-on in Firefox I was presented with the error in the title of this post.
After some searching it seems that the least intrusive way to go about fixing it is to update the Firefox configuration for your user profile.
If you are on WinXP look in C:\Documents and Settings\UID\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\fxlme5ka.default. On my install the following preference was in prefs.js
Save the file and restart Firefox.→ Continue reading “Fixing "Software installation has been disabled by your system administrator" Notice When Attempting to Install An Addon for Firefox”
This tutorial makes the following assumptions:
- That you are running JBoss under a ‘jboss’ user whose home directory is /home/jboss/
For the following examples the string “<server-name/ip>” should be replaced with the domain name, or ip address from which the site will be accessed via https. Also the path to your installed JDK is likely different.
- Create a new keystore using the jdk provided binary:
# /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk/bin/keytool -genkey -alias your_alias -keyalg RSA -keystore keystore.jks
Enter keystore password:

If you ever see the following when attempting to start up an instance of JBoss 6.x:
15:41:15,740 ERROR [AbstractKernelController] Error installing to Start: name=IIOPInvoker state=Create: java.net.UnknownHostException: some_host_name: some_host_name
[:1.6.0_17] at org.jboss.invocation.iiop.IIOPInvoker.start(IIOPInvoker.java:233) [:6.0.0.Final]
It is because JBoss cannot resolve the host name of the machine on which it is running. To fix:
- Edit /etc/hosts and add the name of the box pointing to an ip address.
- Set up a proper DNS entry for the host name of the machine.
