How to configure Email with SOA with gmail

This Article will teach you how to configure Email configuration when using Email activity in BPEL flow

Pre-requisite :

1.  you should have SOA server running.

2.  Have gmail account.

3.  download OpenSSL for generating certificate

How to do Email configuration with gmail

1 :  Generate the key store and imap and smtp certificate

1.1 open the cmd and go to OpenSSL installation directory home and then bin. for me this location is C:OpenSSL-Win32bin

openssl s_client -connect imap.gmail.com:993 > imap_gmail.cert
– It will generate a file imap_gmail.cert

openssl s_client -connect smtp.gmail.com:465 > smtp_gmail.cert
– It will generate a file smtp_gmail.cert in the same directory

Edit the files and remove everything before or after the following tags(both begin certificate and end certificate should be included)

1.2 open $JAVA_HOME/bin and copy the above two files(you can remove later after performing keytool commands) in the directory and issue a command on cmd prompt

keytool -import -alias imap.gmail.com -keystore demogmailcertstore.jks -file imap_gmail.cert

– It will ask for password twice(if you are making .jks for the first time), make sure you remember this password

keytool -import -alias smtp.gmail.com -keystore demogmailcertstore.jks -file smtp_gmail.cert

– It will ask for password, give the same password which you gave earlier

Above command will generate a file in the same directory as demogmailcertstore.jks

1.3 Edit the %WLS_HOME%uer_projectsdomains<domain_name>binsetDomainEnv.cmd (change .sh for linux) to specify the trust key generated in previous step
search for -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore text in the file and replace with
-Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore=<path>/demogmailcertstore.jks  -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword=<password you used while making the .jks file>

1.4 Save and close the file
