Hi, In one of my J2EE projects, I needed to select various open source tools. The J2EE project will use either Weblogic 10 / JBoss 5 aplication server for deployment. This J2EE project involves (acts as hub for) exchange of xml messages among various access points. The exchange of XML messages is done thru web services invocation. The project needs to have tools/frameworks for various requirements as mentioned below. We are planning to use open surce tools/frameworks for these purposes. I'm doing some initial research, but not yet finalized any product/framework yet.
1)collection of real-time performance metrics such as data transfer rate, message transfer rate, bandwidth utilization and will enable the real-time establishment of the status of the access point services. Not sure if OpenSmart is the correct choice. http://opensmart.sourceforge.net/ 2)crash reporting tools that enable the administrator to prepare a bug report with all information that can be useful to the developers. Loking for open source tools similar to Mozilla TalkBack or Windows Error Reporting 3)Relatime log (log generated thru log4j) serach thru a GUI. Thinking to use Apache Chainsaw: A GUI-based Log viewer for log4j. http://logging.apache.org/chainsaw/index.html 4)Thinking to use Apache Axis2 for Web services when compared to Apache CXF or Sun Java Web Services Development Pack. 5)Web Services Test Suite: Looks like soapUI is the leading open source tool. http://www.soapui.org/index.html
6)For Message exchange hub, we plan to use Weblogic and for message sending/receving and other business logic will be deployed on a open source app server. For this purpose, thinking to use JBoss app server when compared to GlassFish
Please let me know if any other open source tools/frame works are available for the above requirements.
Any help on these topic would be very much appreciated. I know some of the topics should have been covered in other forums, but as I'm looking for open source suff, I thought this would be right forum to post here.
