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 :-)

IBM Business Process Manager on Cloud service adds case handling and enhanced mobile UIs
Wed, Sep 17th 2014 12:45p   Dave Hay
New features built into IBM® Business Process Manager (IBM BPM) on Cloud include: • Basic case-management capabilities that enable knowledge workers to drive business outcomes by using a combination of structured workflows, ad-hoc tasks, and document processing. • New design capabilities for creating responsive user interfaces that can be designed once and run on any device form factor (phone, tablet, or desktop), to support mobile-ready process applications. • Service availability fo [read] Keywords: ibm apple applications desktop mobile

WebSphere Application Server Security configuration changes done with wsadmin are not activated immediately.
Wed, Sep 17th 2014 7:05a   Dave Hay
Saw this rather useful IBM Technote via Twitter: - WebSphere Application Server Security configuration changes done with wsadmin are not activated immediately. Problem(Abstract) Some administrative actions (like mapping administrative users or groups to security roles) might not get activated immediately and require a restart of the JVM. For example, you want to map the group called "wasadmins" to the Administrator role: AdminTask.mapGroupsToAdminRole('[-roleName administrator -accessids [ [read] Keywords: ibm application security server twitter websphere

IBM Integration Bus 9.0.0.2 - Tooling Up
Mon, Sep 15th 2014 4:05a   Dave Hay
My ongoing journey with IBM Integration Bus continues: - Installing IBM Integration Bus 9.0.0.2 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3 I've now got the Toolkit installed and running on RHEL63. Unlike WMQ and IIB, the Toolkit is installed using IBM Installation Manager. The first thing I had to do was to update IIM from 1.6.0 to 1.6.2+ as I previously had: - com.ibm.cic.agent_1.6.0.20120831_1216 I actually updated to 1.7.2: - com.ibm.cic.agent_1.7.2000.20140227_0303 ( thanks to BPM 8.5.5 disk 2 ( BP [read] Keywords: ibm eclipse enterprise integration linux profile red hat websphere

IBM BPM 8.5 - Groups and Caches
Wed, Sep 10th 2014 4:45a   Dave Hay
This follows an earlier post: - IBM BPM Standard 7.5.1.1 - Updating the Group Cache where I reported that, for BPM 7.5.1.1, it was an easy matter to reset the GroupCache in Process Admin, in order to have some WAS groups appear inside the User Management > Group Management view ( in order to allow me to assign WAS groups to BPM roles such as tw_admins and tw_authors ). So I've followed the same path for BPM Advanced 8.5.0.1 ( Process Center AND Process Server ) here. I created a bunch of new [read] Keywords: admin ibm server

iTunes to iPad - An unknown error occurred (-50)
Mon, Sep 8th 2014 7:09a   Dave Hay
I saw this: - An unknown error occurred (-50) from an iPad Mini whilst trying to sync, via USB, from iTunes 11.3.1 on my Mac. Thankfully, a few Google searches later, I performed the most minor of resets - General > Reset > Reset All Settings, which appears to have cleared the problem. I did, it must be said, have an iTunes backup of the little fella, just in case :-) [read] Keywords: google mac

So I wanted to use X11 on my RHEL63 VM in order to install/use the WebSphere MQ Toolkit ( see earlier post ), but got this: - X11 forwarding request failed on channel 0 when I attempted to connect and tunnel X11 from my Mac ( I'm using XQuartz as per this 2013 post ): - ssh -X mqm@bam8012.uk.ibm.com I did a quick smoke-test: - xeyes -bash: xeyes: command not found echo $DISPLAY I fixed the first problem: - yum install xeyes Loaded plugins: product-id, security, subscription-manager Updating [read] Keywords: ibm enterprise google linux mac red hat security server vm websphere

IBM WebSphere MQ - (l)user error with amqsput and clustered Queue Managers
Fri, Sep 5th 2014 1:26p   Dave Hay
So I've spent nearly four hours, working with a much more experienced ( with WebSphere MQ ) colleague, trying to diagnose an issue. In essence, I was trying to test the connectivity between WebSphere MQ ( WMQ ) and IBM BPM, and had configured BPM ( actually WAS ) to connect to a WMQ Queue Manager / Queue via an Activation Specification. I had a sample Message Driven Bean (MDB) ( taken from this White Paper Using WebSphere MQ V7 as JMS Provider for WebSphere Application Server V7, V8.0 and V8.5 [read] Keywords: ibm application server websphere
