Write a service to read the port number from server.cnf (watt.server.port=5565) and use the information retrieved from this service.


Thanx for reply,yes server.cnf file in config folder ,it contains watt.server.port=55555,can you help how get the value of this filed.

sending me the code great help to me.

Try something like:

      Properties prop = new Properties();
      prop.load(new FileInputStream(ServerAPI.getServerConfigDir() + "/server.cnf"));
      String port = prop.getProperty("watt.server.port");

with the import of java.util.* and*

or you can use system properties like

String IShostName = System.getProperty(“”);

String ISHTTPlistener = System.getProperty(“”);

you can also read all system properties by

Properties props = System.getProperties(); //import java.util.*

//and put the values on pipeline
IDataCursor pipelineCursor= pipeline.getCursor();
Enumeration enum = props.propertyNames();
for (; enum.hasMoreElements(); ) {
// Get property name
String propName = (String)enum.nextElement();

// Get property value
String propValue = (String)props.get(propName);
IDataUtil.put( pipelineCursor, propName, propValue);

IDataCursor pipelineCursor = pipeline.getCursor();
ServerAPI API;
String hostname;
String port;
API = new ServerAPI();
hostname = API.getServerName();
int temp_port = API.getCurrentPort();

temp_port = API.getCurrentPort();

port = (new Integer(temp_port)).toString();

IDataUtil.put( pipelineCursor, “IShostname”, hostname );
IDataUtil.put( pipelineCursor, “ISport”, port);



in flow service, call wm.server.ports:listListeners
it will generate a list : listeners
under it, if listeners/primary=true
it’s primary port

Hai All,

Thax for solution for every one.
