WebSphere Application Server - High Availability Manager - What Is It Good For ?
Thu, Aug 27th 2015 7:15a   Dave Hay
I've just posted to the GWC blog here: -WebSphere Application Server - High Availability Manager - What Is It Good For ?This has come up in the past few weeks, as I've been configuring WebSphere Application Server (WAS) Network Deployment, aka WAS Full Profile, to store it's transaction log data in DB2 database tables.This requirement exists because, for resilience and high availability, one typically deploys a WAS cell across multiple logical or physical nodes.Want to know more ?

Building and deploying business monitor models for IBM Business Process Manager V8.5 processes
Thu, Aug 27th 2015 3:55a   Dave Hay
I saw this on Twitter and thought of .... well, everyone :-)Learn how you can generate a monitor model from IBM® Business Process Manager V8.5 and deploy the monitor model in an IBM Business Monitor server installed in a separate WebSphere® cell. This content is part of the IBM Business Process Management Journal.IBM Integration Designer (hereafter called Integration Designer) provides the capability to generate a monitor model from your IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) project.

Podcasts app in iOS - Sunk, not syncing
Tue, Aug 25th 2015 2:33p   Dave Hay
OK, so I managed to break, and then fix, the Podcasts app in iOS 8.4.1 on an iPhone 5s.The lesson learned ? Don't do this in iTunes as it seems to stop the Podcasts app from downloading updates to the podcast feed.In fact, it's worse than that ( it's dead, Jim ) in that the app hangs altogether, and then completely crashes.I tried the IT Crowd trick: -IT Crowd - Have You Tried Turning It Off And On Again? ( YouTube )but to no avail.The solution appeared to be related to the fact that BOTH i

Comment lines: Encrypting WebSphere Application Server system passwords — if you insist
Thu, Aug 20th 2015 2:58a   Dave Hay
This from my IBM colleague, Martin Lansche: -IBM® WebSphere® Application Server stores system passwords in files that are simply encoded. To support clients who want to implement their own password storage mechanism, WebSphere Application Server has provided a System Programming Interface (SPI) to do so. Encrypting these system passwords can provide some marginal additional security benefits for a specific class of vulnerability (poorly implemented application code), but it cannot provide defe

"Invalid operation: result set is closed" with IBM BPM 8.5.5
Wed, Aug 19th 2015 8:02a   Dave Hay
This is in the context of an IBM Business Process Manager Advanced 8.5.5.0 installation on AIX.I'd noticed a spurious exception in the First Failure Data Capture (FFDC) logs of both members of the AppCluster: -19/08/15 09:44:01:200 BST] FFDC Exception:org.springframework.jdbc.UncategorizedSQLException SourceId:com.ibm.ws.uow.UOWManagerImpl.runUnderNewUOW ProbeId:934 Reporter:com.ibm.ws.uow.UOWManagerImpl@f8de0965 org.springframework.jdbc.UncategorizedSQLException: PreparedStatementCallback;

Hmmm, so I saw this during the startup of a previously more-than-happy WAS cluster member, specifically a member of my IBM BPM 8.5.5 Support cluster: -[17/08/15 08:33:46:944 BST] 00000001 ModelMgr I WSVR0801I: Initializing all server configuration models[17/08/15 08:33:47:042 BST] 00000001 Ffdc I com.ibm.ffdc.util.provider.FfdcOnDirProvider logIncident FFDC1003I: FFDC Incident emitted on /opt/ibm/WebSphereProfiles/PSCell1AppSrv01/logs/ffdc/ffdc.2593104506022466010.txt com.ibm.wb

iOS and Apple Music - where're my playlists gone ?
Tue, Aug 11th 2015 12:46p   Dave Hay
I reset the iOS settings / configuration on one of our iPads last evening ( an iPad 2 ), and we then realised that all of our carefully crafted iTunes Playlists had disappeared :-(I didn't panic :-)I checked iTunes on my Mac, and confirmed that the playlists WERE still there.I then turned to Google, searching for "iTunes Playlist" and found this: -Check your Apple Music library settings( from Apple.com )which said, in part: -Sign in to Apple Music and turn on iCloud Music LibraryTo add music

Mon, Aug 10th 2015 4:56a   Dave Hay
This from developerWorks Answers: -How can I set JVM property to many JVMs at once?is absolutely going to be of use at some point quite soon, so I'm cross-posting it here as an aide memoire.
