How To Undeploy A Service-Assembly In ServiceMix

While playing around with ServiceMix I had to undeploy a service-assembly. This was not so easy.
You can use an ant task under SERVICEMIX-HOME/ant.
The readme.txt has a typo and I didn’t know the servicemix user and password.
Finally I came up with:
ant -f servicemix-ant-task.xml -Dsm.username=smx -Dsm.password=smx -Dsm.service.assembly.name=NAME_OF_THE_SA undeploy-service-assembly
You have to shut down the service-assembly before using the JMX console (jconsole)

TextMate And Rails 2.1

While porting an old rails application I noticed that TextMate didn’t make syntax highlightning for the new view file extension „.html.erb“.
Simply open the bundle editor go to the RubyOnRails section, select the HTML(Rails) entry and on the right javascript window on the second line add ‚erb‘ to the filetypes.
fileTypes = ( ‚rhtml‘, ‚erb‘ );
That’s it.
