Rational Application Developer 8 and WebSphere Portal - RAD is not for Theming :-)
   

We saw these rather helpful dialogue boxes earlier today: -


with the even more friendly message: -

The selected wizard could not be started.
Plug-in "com.ibm.etools.portal.ui" was unable to instantiate class "com.ibm.etools.portal.internal.wizard.portal.PortalProjectWizard".
Array index out of range: -1


when one clicked on the "Details >>>" button.

Thankfully this Technote: -


helped us out: -

Creating a new Portal Project results in "Array index out of range: -1" error

This problem only occurs if you attempt to create a new Portal Project when WebSphere Portal Server v7.0 server is installed on your machine.

It is not possible to create or work with Portal projects targeting IBM WebSphere Portal v7.0 or later.

Future versions of Rational Application Developer will show a more appropriate warning message


and links to the Rational Application Developer Information Centre which goes on to say: -

You cannot create and work with the portal projects targeting IBM® WebSphere Portal V7.0, or later. Use the web-based Site Designing Portlet feature to design portal sites on IBM WebSphere Portal V6.1.5, or later. Follow the instructions in IBM WebSphere Portal 7.0 documentation to migrate portal projects deployed on IBM WebSphere Portal V6.1.x to IBM WebSphere Portal V7.0 before working with your portal site using Site Designing Portlet feature.

The Portal Designer can only be used with portal projects targeting all releases of IBM WebSphere Portal V6.1.

Bottom line, if you are looking to design portlets, use a Portlet Project, if you are looking to design themes, use the Site Designing Portlet. You should also look at WebDav to allow you to manage your theme components ( bearing in mind that we have deployed WebSphere Portal 7.0.0.2 which includes the new PageBuilder 2 theme ).

IBM Business Monitor and DB2 users, not instances
Tue, Aug 26th 2014 10:25a   Dave Hay
So I have been wrestling with IBM Business Monitor and, more specifically, Cognos, which was failing to start up with errors such as DPR-DPR-1035, DPR-CMI-4007, CM-CFG-5063 and CM-CFG-5137. Various Technotes etc. suggested that the problem might be with the DB2 database.

IBM BPM 8.5.5 - Process Center to Process Server - and vice versa - beware of the quotes
Mon, Aug 25th 2014 11:25p   Dave Hay
I'm just completing the build of an IBM BPM Advanced 8.5.5 environment, setting up Process Server on one VM to be available for online deployments from a Process Center on another VM. All was looking good until I tried to start the third cluster, AppCluster, which contains the Business Process Modelling Notation (BPNM) run-time. The start process stalled, and I found: - ...

Now that I did not know - Amazon and iTunes together
Mon, Aug 25th 2014 11:45a   Dave Hay
So I was recently shopping for a copy of an old-but-good Kate Bush album, The Whole Story. Apple's iTunes had it for £4.99 whereas Amazon had the same MP3 version for £4.59. Now I'm not saying I'm mean but ..... well, it is 50 pence :-) I bought the album via Amazon, and then thought .... OK, how do I get the album downloaded AND added into my iTunes library in order that I can play it on my iPhone, iPad etc. Well, Amazon came to the rescue ....
