IBM Connections - Files and Firefox - Playing Nicely Together
   

It's been a bone of contention for me that my favourite browser, Mozilla Firefox, fails to correctly render the Files application in IBM Connections, mainly since we upgraded Connections to 3.0.1 and/or since Mozilla have moved to more frequent releases of the browser, I've gone from v5 to v9 in less than a year.

So can you imagine how pleased I was to read this on the Connections Blog ?

Let's start with the good news!  There have been some issues with Connections Files and versions of Mozilla Firefox since version 4.  Files would simply not load.  This has been a known issue for a while, and has been causing some consternation as whilst Firefox 3.6 is the latest supported release, so many users have upgraded beyond that version.  So, I am really really pleased that IBM has released an iFix for this issue which means that Files works in all current releases of Firefox once more.  3.0.1.0-IC-Multi-Files-HF1-IFLO58492 is what you need.  This is not yet on FixCentral, so contact our good friends in IBM support to obtain the fix package (and thanks to David McCarthy in IBM Dublin for making me aware of this news!).

So, to summarise, IBM has released an iFix for Connections 3.0.1 Files - yet to be listed in Fix Central - 3.0.1.0-IC-Multi-Files-HF1-IFLO58492.

Thanks to Stuart McIntyre for sharing this via the most excellent blog ….

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 ).
