Alfresco Webdav SSO Configuration

Hi,

I finally configured Oracle SSO with Alfresco Webdav. Below is how i achieved that.

I need to run Alfresco on tomcat deployed on other virtual machine, i created a class file as under

-- STEP 2 Place this class file under



C:\Alfresco\tomcat\webapps\alfresco\WEB-INF\classes\my\custom



-- STEP 3 Now you need to configure proxy pass in oc4j's httpd.conf file



$ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Apache/conf/httpd.conf, add the following entries:                                                                                    ProxyPass /alfresco/ http://host:8080/alfresco/

ProxyPass /alfresco http://host:8080/alfresco/


ProxyPassReverse /alfresco/ http://host:8080/alfresco/

ProxyPassReverse /alfresco http://host:8080/alfresco/

-- STEP 4 Now you need to enable sso on oracle portal



edit $ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Apache/conf/mod_osso.conf, add the following lines just before the :
require valid-user
AuthType Basic


require valid-user
AuthType Basic

Please restart apache after you have made this configuration 

-- STEP 5 Edit web xml file under

C:\Alfresco\tomcat\webapps\alfresco\WEB-INF

paste below lines before Authentication Filter 

<filter>
<filter-name>Osso Filter</filter-name>
<filter-class>my.custom.OSSOAuthenticationFilter</filter-class>
</filter>

<filter-mapping>
<filter-name>Osso Filter</filter-name>
<url-pattern>/faces/jsp/browse/browse.jsp</url-pattern>
</filter-mapping>

<filter>
<filter-name>Osso Filter</filter-name>
<filter-class>my.custom.OSSOAuthenticationFilter</filter-class>
</filter>

<filter-mapping>
<filter-name>Osso Filter</filter-name>
<url-pattern>/alfresco</url-pattern>
</filter-mapping> 

-- STEP 6 If alfresco is already running then stop and start alfresco
service from start menu under start -> alfresco -> stop alfreco
virtual server



Thats it, now oracle sso is configured successfully for Alfreco



Try opening http://oc4jserverhost/alfresco, it will redirect to oracle
portal sso login page, enter credentials, it will then redirect you to
alfresco home page on successful login.

Any issues implementing this, feel free to contact me..

Conflicting standard.jar with OC4J server

Today i was working on an application that was to be deployed on LIVE oc4j application server. The deployment went successful but when the application was being tested there were many errors as below related to standard. jar that was in OC4J lib and in my application's classpath.

The errors i got are as under ::

I resolved this error by editing my web application's orion-web.xml

I un-commented below line from the file :


 <!-- Uncomment this element to control web application class loader behavior. -->
        <web-app-class-loader search-local-classes-first="true"  include-war-manifest-class-path="true" />
