Interesting, WebSphere Application Server 8.5.5.11 and Java 6
Twitter Google+ Facebook LinkedIn Addthis Email Gmail Flipboard Reddit Tumblr WhatsApp StumbleUpon Yammer Evernote Delicious
   

I saw this: -

ERROR: Support for using Java SE 6 with WebSphere Application Server ends in April 2018.

Java SE 8 is the recommended Java SDK because it provides the latest features and security updates. You can continue to use Java SE 6, but no service can be provided after the end of support date, which could expose your environment to security risks.

You must specify the default Java SDK version on the 'user.wasjava' property. 

To install the Java 8 SDK, specify '-properties user.wasjava=java8'. 

To install the Java 6 SDK, specify '-properties user.wasjava=java6'. 

whilst trying to install the latest WebSphere Application Server (WAS) version ( 8.5.5 Fixpack 11 aka 8.5.5.11 ) today, via this command: -

/opt/ibm/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl -input /mnt/hgfs/Software/Repo/ResponseFiles/installWAS855.rsp -acceptLicense

Given that I was using a response file, it was easy enough to fix, by adding an additional data.key to installWAS855.rsp: -

<profile id='IBM WebSphere Application Server V8.5' installLocation='/opt/ibm/WebSphere/AppServer'>
<data key='eclipseLocation' value='/opt/ibm/WebSphere/AppServer'/>
<data key='user.import.profile' value='false'/>
<data key='cic.selector.os' value='linux'/>
<data key='cic.selector.arch' value='x86'/>
<data key='cic.selector.ws' value='gtk'/>
<data key='cic.selector.nl' value='en'/>
<data key='user.wasjava' value='java6'/>
</profile>


Note that I'm explicitly choosing to use Java6, other Java versions are available :-)

More background from this: -

<snip>

WebSphere Application Server v8.5 traditional

Starting in version 8.5.5.11, you must install either Java SE 6 or Java SE 8 as the version of Java SE contained in the /java and /java64 directories in WebSphere Application Server and used by default during server and node configuration. For existing installations that are being updated, your current Java level remains the same. For example, if you previously installed version 8.5.5.10 with Java SE 6, and you update to version 8.5.5.11, your Java version remains Java SE 6. For information about how to migrate to Java SE 8, see Migrating to Java Platform, Standard Edition 7 or 8.

You can install Java SE 8 by using the GUI, the command line or by using response files. To install Java SE 8 using the command line or response files, you must specify the Java version by using the user.wasjava property.
  • To install Java SE 8, specify -properties user.wasjava=java8.
  • To install Java SE 6, specify -properties user.wasjava=java6.

Using openSSL on macOS to encrypt a file using a password
Wed, Sep 20th 2017 8:44a   Dave Hay
I had a requirement to share a file with a colleague, which I did using Box. However, I wanted to go one step further and encrypt the file BEFORE sharing.This is known, in some circles, as Pre-Internet Encryption (PIE), which is funny, because I like pie - fish pie, apple pie, mince pie, you name it :-)This is what I did: -Encrypt the fileopenssl enc -aes-256-cbc -in Patent.doc > Patent_enc.doc This example uses the AES-256-CBC cipher and requests a password, which is used, with the chosen bl

So almost all of my blog posts are technical, and most involve some kind of IT and/or IBM product or service.,This time, whilst still technology, it's all about …. freezers.We recently took delivery of a Zanussi ZFT10210WA freezer, and hit a problem ….Specifically, it was a UI problem.More specifically, the UI didn't match the documentation.This is what the documentation has: -whereas the freezer looks more like this: -In other words, how can I set it to -16 degrees C when the Temperature

Testing JDBC Data Sources using Jython

One of my colleagues asked me about this …In essence, did I have a Jython script that allows one to test JDBC data source …Here's one I prepared earlier: -testDataSource.jycellID = AdminControl.getCell()cell=AdminConfig.getid( '/Cell:'+cellID+'/')for dataSource in AdminConfig.list('DataSource',cell).splitlines(): print dataSource AdminControl.testConnection(dataSource)Notes: -- To support the FOR loop, there are indentations ( thanks Python, we love you ) in front of the last two line
