Configuration Files

eBAM has several configuration files that allow to modify the behaviour of the runtime. Here is the list of the configuration files you can modify:

  • /conf/configuration.xml inside the runtime plugin /plugins/org.eclipse.ebam.adapter_x.x.x.jar
  • /conf/configuration.xml inside the runtime plugin /plugins/org.eclipse.ebam.eventmanager_x.x.x.jar
  • /conf/mail.xml inside the runtime plugin /plugins/org.eclipse.ebam.eventmanager_x.x.x.jar
  • /ebamDB/url.properties inside the runtime plugin /plugins/org.eclipse.ebam.h2_x.x.x.jar
  • /src/META_INF/persistence.xml inside the runtime plugin /plugins/org.eclipse.ebam.modelconnector_x.x.x.jar

Moreover, in each plugin you can find the logback.xml file to the configuration of logging of plugins.All the log file are under the /CATALINA_IS_UNDEFINED folder in the runtime

Configuring adapter manager and adapters

To configure the adapter manager and source adapters, you have to modify the /conf/configuration.xml inside the runtime plugin /plugins/org.eclipse.ebam.adapter_x.x.x.jar. How to configure the behaviour of the source adapter is explained in the previous chapter. To configure the behaviour of the adapter manager you have to modify the properties of the manager in configuration.xml

<manager type = "osgi">

<property name="caching" value="true"/>

<property name="transform" value="true"/>


<engine name="BASE" class="org.eclipse.ebam.customengine.CustomEngine"></engine>



the property caching if set to true, allow the storing of the messages arrived form the log adapter and sent to the engines.

For the messages that comes to the log adapter, they are xml messages and to cache them the adapter manager extracts all fields of xml messages using the x-path written below, so if the xml message changes and you want to cache it, you have to configure the xpath in that way.



<property name="error" value="//*/HDR/ERRORE" />

<property name="phaseName" value="//*/HDR/PHASE_NAME"/>

<property name="phaseDescr" value="//*/HDR/PHASE_DESCR"/>

<property name="phaseProg" value="//*/HDR/PHASE_PROG"/>

<property name="state" value="//*/HDR/STATE"/>

<property name="sourceName" value="//*/HDR/SRC_NAME"/>

<property name="serviceSrc" value="//*/HDR/SRV_SRC"/>

<property name="startDate" value="//*/HDR/START_TS"/>

<property name="endDate" value="//*/HDR/END_TS"/>

<property name="execTime" value="//*/HDR/EXEC_TS"/>

<property name="serviceInstLabel" value="//*/HDR/SRV_INSTANCE"/>

<property name="serviceStartDate" value="//*/HDR/SRV_START_TS"/>

<property name="serviceEndDate" value="//*/HDR/SRV_END_TS"/>

<property name="serviceInstState" value="//*/HDR/SRV_INSTANCE_STATE"/>

<property name="msgType" value="//*/HDR/MSG"/>

<property name="serviceName" value="//*/HDR/SRV"/>

</journal> </ebam-message-rules>

In this file you have to insert all Adapters configuration, you can find some information about this in the previous chapter here:

Modifying Database

To modify the DBMS used to connect to the database, you have to modify the plugin /org.eclipse.ebam.modelconnector_x.x.x.jar in /META_INF/persistence.xml . This plugin is even in the eclipse runtime and eclipse designer and you have to configure both.

<property name="javax.persistence.jdbc.driver" value="org.h2.Driver"/>

<property name="javax.persistence.jdbc.url" value="jdbc:h2:tcp://localhost/~/ebam"/>

<property name="javax.persistence.jdbc.user" value="ebam"/>

<property name="javax.persistence.jdbc.password" value="ebam"/>

If you want to change DBMS uncomment the part concerning your DBMS. However, eBAM runtime when start automatically tries to start up an H2 Server, so you have to disable this feature, disabling the plugin org.eclipse.ebam.h2_x.x.x.jar that is in the runtime. To do it, go in the file eBAM-x.x.x-runtime\configuration\org.eclipse.equinox.simpleconfigurator\bundles.info and delete the line org.eclipse.ebam.h2,x.x.x,plugins/org.eclipse.ebam.h2_x.x.x.jar,1,true

You can find some information about persistance.xml in EclipseLink documentations.

Configuring event manager

You can configure the event manager to enable the feature of sending alarm and emails. The configuration files are in :

  • /conf/configuration.xml
  • /conf/mail.xml

inside the runtime plugin /plugins/org.eclipse.ebam.eventmanager_1.0.0.jar. In configuration.xml, you can enable a thread that search for event that generates an alarm, and you can set in the timeout how often the thread has to search for alarms.


In mail.xml you can modify the profile of the system that sends the mail, after generating an alarm.

<PROFILE name="alarm"

Reading cache

The model connector boundle use Eclipse Link to read/write data on DBMS, it has a simple cache to improve the performance. 

This cache keep some Domain Data in memory.

To configure the cache you have to change this file: org.eclipse.ebam.modelconnector\conf\cache.xml:

<property name="enable" value="true" />
<!-- time out in second -->
<property name="timeout" value="600"/>

timeout: the refresh time of the cache
