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.

IBM UrbanCode Deploy - I remember my first time
Mon, Dec 15th 2014 3:08a   Dave Hay
This is the first of many posts covering a relatively recent acquisition, IBM UrbanCode Deploy (UCD), which is, amongst other things, an automated deployment and delivery solution.The reason for my interest is that I'm working with a few clients who are considering the use of UCD for automation, in the context of IBM Business Process Manager, IBM Operational Decision Manager, IBM Integration Bus etc.To start with, I'm going to outline my experiences thus far with the build of a UCD environment [read] Keywords: admin agent connections ibm aix application database db2 enterprise exchange exchange integration java linux mac network oracle password red hat server vm vmware websphere

IBM UrbanCode Deploy - Continuous application delivery to WebSphere Application Server
Fri, Dec 12th 2014 11:46a   Dave Hay
I'm starting to "play" with UrbanCode Deploy (UCD), in the initial context of continuous application delivery to WebSphere Application Server, moving to the "full fat" model of CAD to IBM BPM and IBM IIB.This looks to be a useful read: -Continuous application delivery to WebSphere Application ServerThis is even more useful: -https://developer.ibm.com/urbancode/PS UCD 6.1.1 was released YESTERDAY - December 11 - guess what I downloaded this morning ?So I've got UCD installed on a RHEL 6.3 V [read] Keywords: ibm application db2 java server vm websphere

Using IBM HTTP Server and the WebSphere Plugin to load-balance workload across a non-federated WebSphere Application Server environment
Tue, Dec 9th 2014 3:26p   Dave Hay
This time around, I have a requirement to deploy IBM HTTP Server (IHS) and the WebSphere Plugin to route traffic to WebSphere Application Server (WAS).So far, so good.However, the difference is that, this time, I'm NOT leveraging the power of WAS Network Deployment ( WAS ND ). There are no clusters here.Equally, the two instances of WAS are completely self-contained.For my proof of concept, I've got a single set of WAS binaries ( I am using WAS 8.5.5.3 ) with a pair of standard profiles, AppSr [read] Keywords: ibm apple application applications network password security server websphere xml

In case it helps, I needed to make Thunderbird LESS secure in order to access a Newsgroup server that was offering up SSL v3.This was what I saw in TB's Error Console: -Timestamp: 05/12/2014 13:12:40Error: An error occurred during a connection to newsgroup.foobar.com:563.Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common encryption algorithm(s).(Error code: ssl_error_no_cypher_overlap)and this is what led me to the solution: -openssl s_client -connect newsgroup.foobar.com:563 -status...New, TLSv1 [read] Keywords: firefox security server

IBM BPM Advanced 8.5.5 - Process Center to Process Server
Fri, Dec 5th 2014 3:05a   Dave Hay
So I am continuing to get my head around the integration between Process Center and Process Server, in that it's possible to have a connected Process Server to which one can actively deploy snapshots, using the so-called online/connected deployment.This is what the connected Process Server looks like: -Whilst this is easy to configure when one first creates a Deployment Environment, I had a situation recently where one of our team inadvertently clicked the Take Server Offline button.This does p [read] Keywords: ibm apple integration password server websphere

ContextThis relates to a two cell, two node, multi-cluster IBM BPM Advanced 8.5.0.1 environment, installed and running on AIX.We have four WAS profiles; two Deployment Manager, two Application Server, each with its own unique profile root.This provides a pair of completely isolated Process Server environments.This is the first time both cells ( aka Deployment Environments ) have been running at the same time, hence the first time this problem evidenced itself.SymptomsThe SupCluster on 2nd node f [read] Keywords: ibm aix application java profile security server websphere xml

IBM Business Process Manager - WAS to DB2 authentication - SQLSTATE=42815
Tue, Dec 2nd 2014 4:45a   Dave Hay
I have blogged about this before: -WAS to DB2 - Null userid is not supported. ERRORCODE=-4461, SQLSTATE=42815and saw the same issue again today, albeit in a different context.Whilst bringing up a BPM Advanced 8.5.1.0 environment, I was using the Test Connection button to validate my WAS to DB2 connectivity, via a JDBC Data Source that's in the scope of the Support Cluster ( SupCluster ).Now I had manually created this datasource last week, in the context of the connectivity between IBM BPM and [read] Keywords: agent ibm db2 integration java server sql
