Lotus Notes 8.5.3 on Apple Mac OSX - Where do your temp files go to, my lovely ?
   

Now I've done this a few times before, and it's cost me time ( and time costs money, darn it ).

So, here's the situation - one of my colleagues sends me an email, with an attached document ( a Microsoft Word .DOC file, if it matters ! ). Now I know what you're going to say …. why oh why oh why did he send me an attachment ? :-p

Anyway, I double-click on the attachment, and automatically open it up in Lotus Symphony 8.01 which is nice.

I edit the document, and then save it ( to a new filename, of course ), without really focusing on the WHERE e.g. into which folder I'm saving it.

So now I need to send my revised document back to my colleague - via LotusLive, as I just simply refuse to send email attachments :-)

Ah, right, now where did I put the file ?

When you open a file from within a Notes message, it stores it in a temporary location of, apparently, it's own making.

Ordinarily, on the Mac, I'd simply use Spotlight ( [CMD] [Space] ) to find the file by name. Sadly, at least on my system, Spotlight doesn't index absolutely everywhere :-(

After some trial-and-error ( including creating a draft email to myself, which included a similar document attachment, and then opening it in Symphony ), I worked out that the temporary folder is ….. here: -

/private/var/folders/g_/zl9kplwd7hg2fcwh5qrpdwbh0000gn/T/TemporaryItems/notes

Now I *know* that the folder location will change from time to time e.g. perhaps with a newly opened instance of Notes, on a different machine etc. but … it'd do.

So, if I remember to read this blog post IN THE FUTURE, I'll be able to find my attachments :-)

Alternatively, perhaps I can tell Spotlight to index /private or tell Notes to store temporary files in, say, /tmp :-)

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
