Java to DB2 via TLS 1.2 - A new one on me
Fri, Aug 18th 2017 7:05p   Dave Hay
So I've been helping a friend debug and resolve a problem whereby his Java 7 code wasn't connecting to a DB2 database via a TLS 1.2 connection.To validate this, I setup a DB2 instance to support TLS 1.2: -As rootecho "db2c_ssl 60007/tcp" >> /etc/servicesAs db2inst1/home/db2inst1/sqllib/gskit/bin/gsk8capicmd_64 -keydb -create -db /home/db2inst1/keystore.kdb -pw passw0rd -stash/home/db2inst1/sqllib/gskit/bin/gsk8capicmd_64 -cert -create -db /home/db2inst1/keystore.kdb -pw passw0rd -label

IBM API Connect - Now a Happy Bunny - Was Notworking, Now Networking
Fri, Aug 18th 2017 3:59p   Dave Hay
As per the past few posts, I've been learning my way around IBM API Connect, and had it nearly working - until about 15 minutes ago when it ALL started working. Without getting too deep into the What and How, the TL;DR; is this …..I have three VMs; the API Manager, the Developer Portal and the DataPower Gateway.As per a previous post: - IBM API Connect - Adding IBM DataPower Gateway into the mix - SOMA import failed I'd moved DataPower onto a different Mac, as it requires 8 GB RAM.I'd sen

IBM API Connect - "Unexpected token ILLEGAL"
Fri, Aug 18th 2017 2:35p   Dave Hay
So I'm continuing my voyage of discovery with IBM API Connect, and had followed this tutorial to create a simple API using Loopback: -Building a simple public API on API ConnectAnnoyingly, when I came to test my API, I was seeing this: -and, via Debug, this: -This is the Gateway Script that I have: -Can you see what I can see ?Yeah, I'm at home to Cap'n Copy Paste :-(I fixed my code: -saved the API and republished the product.Now we have this: -which is far far better.So, for the record, the

IBM API Connect - Webhooks not configured
Fri, Aug 18th 2017 2:27p   Dave Hay
I'm learning my way around IBM API Connect at present, which is giving me a great opportunity to also learn IBM DataPower Gateway, which is nice.Whilst trying to determine why I'm unable to test my APIs on the DataPower Gateway from within the API Manager, I was looking at some of the underlying Developer Portal commands, including: -list_siteswhich returned: -5995c388e4b0d25e2a2ee8f2.5995c388e4b0d25e2a2ee8fe => portal.uk.ibm.com/davehay/sb (INSTALLED) Webhooks not configuredand: -statusSy

IBM DataPower Playground - on IBM Bluemix
Fri, Aug 18th 2017 8:49a   Dave Hay
I found this serendipitously whilst looking for something completely different: -Welcome to the IBM DataPower Playground.The IBM DataPower Playground is an interactive website that lets you write GatewayScript code and execute it on a cloud hosted DataPower Gateway for learning purposes.GatewayScript is a new transformation technology for API, Web and Mobile and is available in DataPower as a Processing Policy Action starting from firmware version 7.0. For more information see the documentation.

IBM API Connect - Adding IBM DataPower Gateway into the mix - SOMA import failed
Thu, Aug 17th 2017 1:39p   Dave Hay
I've been tinkering with an IBM API Connect 5.0.7.2 implementation on my Mac, running all three VMs; the API Manager, the Developer Portal AND the DataPower Gateway on the same box.However, I saw this: -when attempting to integrate APIC and IDG.I dumped out the APIC CMC logs: -debug postmortem export sftp 10.10.2.3 user fred file /tmp/foobar.tar.gzand, on the Mac, exploded the resulting tarball, giving me this: -log/cmc.out:2017-08-17 13:19:30.076 SEVERE [T-83] [com.ibm.datapower.gwapi.impl.Gat

Thanks to a friend, Paul Smith, for sharing this.He had a requirement - to take a list of items ( a text file ) and invert the list.Initially I thought he meant that he wanted to sort the list, which seemed simple.Here's a list: -cat list.txt CatRabbitDogGerbilHamsterHorseRhinoHippoAlosaurso here's the sorted list: -sort list.txt AlosaurCatDogGerbilHamsterHippoHorseRabbitRhinoand here's the reverse sort: -sort -r list.txt RhinoRabbitHorseHippoHamsterGerbilDogCatAlosaurbut NO, I didn't unders

Almost every product with which I've worked recently, including: -IBM Business Process ManagerIBM Operational Decision Manager (Rules)IBM API ConnectIBM WebSphere Liberty Profile (Collectives)IBM DataPower Gatewayleverages Representational State Transfer (REST) APIs, so I've got no excuse but to L-E-A-R-N.Whilst working through the DataPower tutorial here: -IBM DataPower Gateways - Getting Started - Your first configurationI needed to get a handle on how to drive REST, both in the context of t
