Installation

No binaries are available for the Spring Boot 2 at the moment. It should be built from the master branch.

Assuming Java 8 is installed, ./mvnw install -DskipTests should be enough to build the jar files.

For detail instructions on development environement setup, see here.

Using Executable Jars

Java 1.8 is required.

Run the Webapp with:

java -jar mojito-webapp-*-exec.jar

Run the CLI with:

java -jar mojito-cli-*-exec.jar

As mojito is based on Spring Boot, it can be configured in many ways.

One simple solution is to add an application.properties next to the jar. To use a different location use --spring.config.additional-location=/path/to/your/application.properties.

CLI install script

The server provides an entry point to fetch a bash script that downloads the latest CLI from the server and create a bash wrapper to easily run the CLI.

It can be called with a one liner to make the bash command available rigth away in the current console. Replace http://localhost:8080 with the actual URL if needed.

# bash 4:
source <(curl -L -N -s http://localhost:8080/cli/install.sh)

# bash 3 (mac):
source /dev/stdin <<< "$(curl -L -N -s http://localhost:8080/cli/install.sh)"

# Optional: specify the install directory: 
source <(curl -L -N -s http://localhost:8080/cli/install.sh?installDirectory=mydirectory)

After that in the current console, mojito is available

mojito -v

If the server is running behind a load balancer, use the following setting to make sure the links in the bash script use the load balancer URL:

server.forward-headers-strategy=native

Setup

The default setup comes with HSQL in-memory database, database authentication and runs on port 8080. For production, MySQL should be setup. Different types of authentication are available too.

On the first Webapp startup, a user: admin/ChangeMe is created. This can be customized with configuration, see Manage Users.

Server port

The port can be changed with the server.port property.

MySQL

Install MySQL 5.7 and then create a database for mojito (with Brew: brew install mysql@5.7).

Connect to MySQL DB as root user

mysql -u root

Create user ${DB_USERNAME} with ${DB_PASSWORD}

mysql> CREATE USER '${DB_USERNAME}'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY '${DB_PASSWORD}';

Create database ${DB_NAME} and give ${DB_USERNAME} full access to the database

mysql> CREATE DATABASE IF NOT EXISTS ${DB_NAME} CHARACTER SET 'utf8mb4' COLLATE 'utf8mb4_bin';
mysql> GRANT ALL ON ${DB_NAME}.* TO '${DB_USERNAME}'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY '${DB_PASSWORD}';
mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;

Configure mojito to use MySQL. When using MySQL, Flyway must be turned on and it is strongly recommended to explicitly disable the “database clean” features (more info).

spring.flyway.enabled=true
spring.flyway.clean-disabled=true 
l10n.flyway.clean=false
spring.datasource.url=jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/${DB_NAME}?characterEncoding=UTF-8&useUnicode=true
spring.datasource.username=${DB_USERNAME}
spring.datasource.password=${DB_PASSWORD}
spring.datasource.driverClassName=com.mysql.cj.jdbc.Driver

l10n.org.quartz.jobStore.useProperties=true
l10n.org.quartz.scheduler.instanceId=AUTO
l10n.org.quartz.jobStore.isClustered=true
l10n.org.quartz.threadPool.threadCount=10
l10n.org.quartz.jobStore.class=org.quartz.impl.jdbcjobstore.JobStoreTX
l10n.org.quartz.jobStore.driverDelegateClass=org.quartz.impl.jdbcjobstore.StdJDBCDelegate
l10n.org.quartz.jobStore.dataSource=myDS
l10n.org.quartz.dataSource.myDS.provider=hikaricp
l10n.org.quartz.dataSource.myDS.driver=com.mysql.jdbc.Driver
l10n.org.quartz.dataSource.myDS.URL=jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/${DB_NAME}?characterEncoding=UTF-8&useUnicode=true
l10n.org.quartz.dataSource.myDS.user=${DB_USERNAME}
l10n.org.quartz.dataSource.myDS.password=${DB_PASSWORD}
l10n.org.quartz.dataSource.myDS.maxConnections=12
l10n.org.quartz.dataSource.myDS.validationQuery=select 1

Note that utf8mb4 setup has been tested on MySQL 5.7. The server will probably needs some configuration too, for example by editing my.cnf (if installed with brew: /usr/local/etc/my.cnf) with something like:

[client]
default-character-set = utf8mb4

[mysqld]
character-set-server = utf8mb4

Depending on the file size that will be processed, it might be required to increase the max allowed package size

[mysqld]
max_allowed_packet = 256M

If using a older version of MySQL, there is a known issue when creating the schema. One workaround is to use utf8 instead utf8mb4 but it has its limitation in term of character support.

We recommand to run both MySQL and the Java service using UTC timezone (or a least make sure they both the same timezone). To set UTC as default use the following:

[mysqld]
default-time-zone = '+00:00'

CLI

The default CLI configuration maps to the server default configuration and allows to access the server without having to enter credential.

To access a production instance, the server url and port should be configured and it is also common to use the console to enter credential.

l10n.resttemplate.host=${HOSTNAME}
l10n.resttemplate.port=${PORT}
l10n.resttemplate.authentication.credentialProvider=CONSOLE

Database protection

When Flyway is used for DB migration, the Mojito setting to clean the database and the Flyway built-in setting to prevent database cleanup are useful features but it can turn out to be very dangerous if wrong values ever leak to production.

It is strongly recommended to explicitly disable the Mojito cleanup feature (it is disabled by default but may prevent bad configuration to propagate) and to configure Flyway to disable cleanup as well (this is not the default settings).

In short, recommanded settings are:

spring.flyway.clean-disabled=true 
l10n.flyway.clean=false

An additional protection which is not based on settings is also available. The clean operation can be prevented by adding a flag in the database using following commands:

CREATE TABLE flyway_clean_protection(enabled boolean default true);
INSERT INTO flyway_clean_protection (enabled) VALUES (1);

Note that this check is optimistic and if for some reason the query fails it will consider that the database not protected. This is just an additional protection in case the settings are missued but you should not rely exclusively on it.
