#ShellShock - Bash broke my VMware

IBM BPM 8.5.0 - Updating REST Endpoints programmatically
Fri, Sep 26th 2014 9:25a   Dave Hay
Now I've been seeking a way to achieve this for a wee while now, and finally here it is, thanks in large part to the excellent IBM BPM Community within IBM, many of whom came to my rescue. In essence, I want to be able to update the various REST endpoints within the IBM BPM WAS applications, when I add in IBM HTTP Server ( either co-located or separate ) and HTTP load balancing. This allows the RESTful services to be rendered via the web tier, rather than going directly to the WAS Web Containe [read] Keywords: ibm applications community network password server xml

Mon, Sep 22nd 2014 9:05a   Dave Hay
One of my colleagues was looking for inspiration, without too much perspiration, in order to create an SSL/TLS Certificate Service Request (CSR) using IBM HTTP Server and the Global Security Toolkit (GSK). He was hoping to use the GUI tool, IKeyMan, but I tried very hard to persuade him that GUIs are for WIMPs, and that the command-line tool, gskcapicmd is the way to go ( whilst IHS also has ikeycmd, that relies upon a Java Runtime Environment, which may not always be available, especially on a [read] Keywords: admin ibm apple application java network security server websphere wiki
