WebSphere Portal - Migration from v6.1.5 to v7.0.x

At present, this is merely a collection of links, but my main aim is to identify any release notes, Javadocs etc. that describe what, if any, portlets or APIs have been deprecated or significantly changed between WP615 and WP70x.

So far, it's looking good e.g. my developers don't need to worry about code that they're writing on WP615, it'll work on WP7, but they will ( of course ) properly test it :-)

The IBM Portlet API has been deprecated for WebSphere Portal Version 7.0 and later versions, but it is still supported. No new functionality will be added and you should convert portlets based on the IBM Portlet API to the Standard Portlet API when possible. Learn how to convert IBM Portlets to Standard API portlets.

and, last but by no means least, there's Rob Will's excellent presentation from Lotusphere 2012 - ID201 Whats New in IBM WebSphere Portal and IBM Web Content Manager  ( requires a free-to-acquire ID on the IBM Greenhouse from here )

IBM BPM - Deleting a Deployment Environment

Not sure why this happens but, when I'm trying to delete an IBM BPM 8.5.5 Deployment Environment: -/opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/BPMConfig.sh -delete -de ProcessServer -profile Dmgr01I get this: -Logging to file /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/logs/config/BPMConfig_20141128-063539.log.Do you want to delete deployment environment?1. yes2. noInput option number: 1Before executing command to delete a deployment environment, it must at least stop the deployment environment.Checking the state of dep [read] Keywords: ibm application applications profile websphere

Following on from this earlier post: -IBM Integration Bus and the WebSphere Application Server (WAS) PluginI'm working with a colleague to implement the same configuration in another environment.Again, we're using IBM HTTP Server in front of IBM Integration Bus, in order to allow requests ( SOAP over HTTP in this particular case ) to be routed to one of a number of Integration Nodes ( aka Brokers in the old tongue ).This is partly to improve performance ( more engines to servic [read] Keywords: admin connections ibm application integration java server websphere

IBM HTTP Server - maintenance mode
Thu, Nov 27th 2014 3:05a   Dave Hay
One of my colleagues was looking for some intel. on this earlier this week.The requirement is to have IBM HTTP Server (IHS) display a different banner page when WebSphere Application Server is placed into maintenance mode e.g. when the WAS cell is being shut down, recycled, upgraded etc.After a few iterations, and a read of this: -Configuring a temporary 'Site Down For Maintenance' page in IBM HTTP Serverthis is what I configured.In essence, we place a single file in the IHS DocumentRoot: -Doc [read] Keywords: connections ibm apple application server websphere

Help - The Proxy Ate My Process Designer
Sat, Nov 22nd 2014 12:25p   Dave Hay
This is a problem that I recently saw with a client, and was able to reproduce, and more importantly, fix on my own environment.But first some background, one of the IBM BPM's major features is the Eclipse-based development, Process Designer. This interacts directly with Process Center, and provides a collaborative rich-client integrated development environment.Unlike other development tools, Process Designer can NOT function with a constant connection to the Process Center run-time, and this c [read] Keywords: admin ibm apple application development eclipse java microsoft network password server virus websphere widget widgets workspace

Lessons Learned - WebSphere MQ, Clustering and Message Driven Beans
Sat, Nov 22nd 2014 3:05a   Dave Hay
ContextThe requirement is to create a clustered WebSphere MQ infrastructure, and then send messages to an application, known as a Message Driven Bean, deployed onto WebSphere Application Server.The next step will be to create a more sophisticated application that can send and receive messages to/from WebSphere MQ, most likely leveraging the JavaEE Service Component Architecture.In this scenario, I will create a pair of WMQ Queue Managers, each on a separate OS ( Red Hat VM ), one representing th [read] Keywords: ibm notes application enterprise integration java password red hat security server vm websphere xml

DB2 Buffer Pools - Automagically tuning
Fri, Nov 21st 2014 2:45p   Dave Hay
So I picked this nugget of wisdom up this week.One of my most excellent DB2 SME colleagues pointed out the wonderful db2top utility, specifically in the context of monitoring Buffer Pools.You see, ever since I learned to install IBM Operational Decision Manager (ODM), I've been creating a Buffer Pool, bp32k, as required by the documentation and, more importantly, the product: -db2 create bufferpool BP32K size 8000 pagesize 32 KThe DB2 SME, let's call him ...

IBM Business Process Manager - Missing the Bus
Fri, Nov 21st 2014 8:06a   Dave Hay
I've just built a single cell, two node three cluster IBM BPM Advanced 8.5.5 environment, against a remote DB2 ESE server.So I was a little startled when, after starting the Deployment Environment, the Service Integration Bus (SIbus) failed to properly start.This is what I saw in one of my Cluster Member logs: -[21/11/14 13:17:03:719 GMT] 00000073 SibMessage I [BPM.ProcessServer.Bus:MECluster.000-BPM.ProcessServer.Bus] CWSIS1593I: The messaging engine, ME_UUID=E997A9EFA09498FC, IN [read] Keywords: ibm apple database db2 integration server

DB2 - Still 8 characters after all these years ...
Thu, Nov 20th 2014 2:45p   Dave Hay
So I'm more than familiar with systems that are "limited" to 8 characters, but I didn't expect DB2 to have the same limitation, leastways not in 2014 :-)This came up using DB2 Enterprise Server Edition on AIX, but I've since recreated it using DB2 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.6 as well.The problem occurs when I tried to create a DB2 instance against an Unix user ID that's 9 characters long.This is because I'm hosting 10 instances on one OS - db2inst1 through db2inst10.Therefore, [read] Keywords: ibm aix db2 enterprise linux red hat server
