Managed Pages – First Look at a New WebSphere Portal 8 Feature
   

A good summary of a rather nice new feature in WebSphere Portal 8 ( which ships tomorrow ! ) from David Wilkerson of Davalan


The task of managing portal pages and web content is evolving and in the next release of WebSphere Portal the integration between web content management and portal page management will grow even tighter.  Recently I installed WebSphere Portal 8 Beta 3 and dove into my first examination. In the following paragraphs I talk about what I saw and learned during my sortie into this new realm.


After logging into the portal I landed on the Getting Started page. I decided to take a quick look at the properties and layout of the page using a conventional approach. I navigated to the Administration pages and loaded the Manage Pages portlet. At the top of the page is a new feature. This pane, which I have dubbed the project pane, represents the state of the page as a member of a project. Projects are not new to Web Content Management but they are, so far as I know, new to page management. According to the product Wiki, "When working in a project, any changes you make to a page affect only your view of the page.

Oracle DB - Broken, now Fixed
Fri, Apr 18th 2014 1:25p   Dave Hay
So I managed to break my Oracle 11g database, and have now fixed it. The symptom was that, although Oracle was started, it wasn't really started. I kept getting "Connected to an idle instance" and "ORA-01034: ORACLE not available" as per the following: - sqlplus / as sysdba SQL*Plus: Release 11.2.0.1.0 Production on Fri Apr 18 19:53:56 2014 Copyright (c) 1982, 2009, Oracle.

IBM Redbooks: using Open Source with Liberty profile
Wed, Apr 9th 2014 11:45a   Dave Hay
The IBM Redbooks publication, Configuring and Deploying Open Source with WebSphere Application Server Liberty Profile was published last month and recently updated. For anyone new to the Liberty profile, the book provides an introduction to its capabilities. It then explains how you can install, customise, and configure several open source technologies to deploy to a Liberty profile server. It uses a simple "Todo" sample application to demonstrate the use of multiple open source frameworks or [read] Keywords: ibm apple application development integration profile server websphere

IBM Business Monitor - Unable to delete BusinessSpaces
Tue, Apr 8th 2014 8:25a   Dave Hay
One of my clients hit an interesting issue with IBM Business Monitor 8.0.1.1, that'd likely affect any product using BusinessSpace, including Business Process Manager. This was a newly minted environment, and we were quite able to create Business Spaces, but we were unable to delete them. There were no obvious exceptions in the WAS logs or in the underlying Oracle database. It was a bit of a puzzler. At my suggestion, the client raised a PMR with IBM Support, which came up trumps. The client me [read] Keywords: access control list acl ibm database oracle tivoli

It's been a while since I posted anything about WebSphere Portal. When I started this blog, seven years ago, I was working in the Technical Sales team, within the IBM Collaboration Solutions (ICS) Brand of IBM's Software Group ( fka Lotus ), and WebSphere Portal was one of the software products upon which I specialised, along with IBM Connections ( fka Lotus Connections ) and IBM Web Content Manager ( fka IBM Lotus Web Content Management ).
